LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) — A new hotel inside the long-standing Binion's Gambling Hall will give visitors a taste of the old days. The new Hotel Apache will be built into the original footprint of the Apache Hotel at Casino Center and Fremont Street, which was built in 1931.
Binion's announced the hotel in February of 2019, and after just under six months, the hotel will be opened to the public.
The opening will be commemorated with a ribbon cutting ceremony by Mayor Carolyn Goodman on July 29, 2019 at 2:00p.m.
"There is so much happening in Downtown Las Vegas and I am thrilled that Binion's is offering the new Hotel Apache experience," Mayor Goodman said. "Downtown has always been the place in our city for history and the vintage Vegas vibe, so this concept is a perfect fit!"
Guests of Hotel Apache will be able to check in at the original registration desk located right on the casino floor. They can then take the first electronic elevator in the city of Las Vegas to their hotel room.
The property also has a long history of eerie occurrences that will appeal to many and was recently featured in Season 16, Episode 3 of "Ghost Adventures" on the Travel Channel.
"You can't buy our history," said Binion's General Manager Tim Lager.
