New Las Vegas hotel aims to bring ‘Palm Springs feel’ to Sin City

A newly renovated downtown Las Vegas hotel aims to give guests the feel of another desert area resort area that’s not Sin City.

The Downtowner opened up this week with 88 renovated rooms all with a Mid Century Modern design. The property’s management says that it’s all about brining a bit of the Coachella Valley to Vegas.

The property’s general manager said 88 rooms were taken down to the bare concrete with the upgraded style bringing a ‘Palm Springs feel’ into the downtown area.

“We have flamingos and golf and our backdrops… it feels like you’re somewhere different than downtown – it’s really great,” said John Yzaguirre, general manager of the Downtowner.

Not sure how flamingos fit into the Palm Springs experience, but if they really want it to feel like Palm Springs, they should just dig up the roads every summer and have the restaurants close at 8.

In addition to the rooms, the Downtowner offers guests a clubhouse, professional putting golf course, pool, lobby bar, firepit area, “Instagrammable art murals,” and the place is just steps away from the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas.

Staying at the Downtowner won’t cost you much – as I found a special deal on for $53 a night for a June weekend.
