Home > Review of Fremont Hotel and Casino in Downtown Las Vegas
The Fremont Hotel has been around for more than sixty years. Upon completion, it immediately became the tallest building in the state of Nevada (1956) with 155 rooms (it now has around 450 bedrooms) and Vegas legend, Wayne Netwon started his career here (yep, its THAT old!). Situated on the 'four corners' in Downtown (where Fremont, Golden Nugget, Binion's and Four Queens meet), make no mistake, you're in old Vegas land (and we like that).
So, it's old, but we like a bit of that every now and again, and there is a smell of smoke in most places, so very anti-smokers will not enjoy it. Whilst we aren't smokers, it didn't bother us at all, really. Also, there isn't a pool, but in over 30 trips to Vegas, I've only had one dip in a pool, so again, didn't bother us. However, the swimming pool at the California can be used by all visitors to the Fremont.
It was really noisy as we walked around Fremont's casino floor, but I have to admit, it was extremely vibrant and fun - maybe we were lucky, but it was one of those nights where everyone was talking, laughing, joking with people they had never met before - a real nice vibe, even if most people's eardrums had burst by the end of the night.
We ate at Tony Roma's in the evening as we love ourselves some ribs and as always at this chain restaurant, everything was good to great. We also used the buffet in the morning which was OK - pretty standard fare for Downtown.
Fremont Casino and Hotel is a ★★★ star hotel with its location in Downtown. Opened in 1956, it's now sixty years ago that housekeeping made their first calls here. With approx. four hundred and fifty guestrooms, it's small for Sin City
Inside the hotel there are three restaurants and one bar offering just about enough diversity to save you heading out if you're too tired. There's a couple of snack places too:
Our room was great, and for what we paid for, it was very good value (for Downtown, anyway). The Fremont Experience is just outside of course, but the location of the hotel means that you can get to any restaurant, bar or casino downtown without breaking sweat - especially great for poker players that are on a bad run, needing to find the next tournament.
Number of hotel rooms in Las Vegas is 125,000 - and rising.
It's always a casino that I've enjoyed playing at, even when not staying in the hotel, and our fun night there only adds to the good feeling I've got about the place.
If Downtown appeals, then Fremont is a more than decent option, especially if it was as fun as the nights I've had there.
Also, I almost forgot, after our morning breakfast at the buffet (Paradise), we made our first ever visit to the Downtown Container Park, down the street, which is worth a visit for something different to eat, or you fancy a quick browse around the stores.
