The Downtown Grand today announced plans to add a third hotel tower set to open in mid-2020.

The new tower, which will have seven guest-room floors, will add 495 rooms to the downtown Las Vegas resort, bringing the total to 1,124, according to a news release. The new tower will be located on the east side of the property.

With the addition, the resort will have 67 studio units, 20 one-bedroom suites, and three presidential suites, each boasting nearly 1,500 square feet of living space.

“The addition of the new suites expands Downtown Grand Hotel and Casino’s capacity to serve groups of all kinds as the perfect downtown destination,” said John Culetsu, the property’s vice president and managing director.

Kevin Glass, general manager, said demand for rooms has steadily increased since hotel-casino opened in 2013. “We believe that having over 1,000 rooms will allow us to meet that new demand and provide a downtown Las Vegas experience visitors as well as locals are seeking,” he said.
