The Downtown Grand Staycation Experience

For those of you that follow me on Instagram, you know that the hubby and I recently spent a couple of nights at one of the best hotels in downtown Las Vegas, Downtown Grand.
Going on vacation in 2020 with the current pandemic situation is far from normal, and many people are choosing to simply stay at home. In our case, we chose to do a local staycation rather than take a trip out of town. Las Vegas remains one of the world’s top destinations for fun and relaxation, and we were determined to have both.
The Grand has taken every measure to make sure that both guests and staff are as safe as possible in these tough times. Temperature checks upon entry, all staff and guests are required to wear masks while on the property (the only exceptions are while eating, in the pool, or of course in your room).  Sanitation stations are prevalent all over the property allowing staff and guests to use sanitizer as needed. Staff is diligent at wiping surfaces, chairs, tables, and machines as often as possible. Outside of a sterile bubble or hazmat suit, nothing is perfect, but for those who wish to have that balance of safety and enjoyment, Las Vegas and the Grand is doing all they can to assure the best possible safe environment.
The Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino is the jewel of the famous downtown Las Vegas area.
As one of the most modern properties in the downtown area, combined with the perfect location (just steps from the world-famous Fremont Street Experience), they are a top choice for anyone looking for a more traditional Vegas experience.
Our deluxe modern room was clean and well-appointed.  A comfortable king-size bed, with soft and fresh linens and quality pillows. A 40 inch HD TV, in-room refrigerator, comfortable sized shower and a view of the beautiful downtown area and the western mountain range of the Las Vegas valley.
The casino is not huge, but has all the games you can ask for. Traditional table games such as craps, blackjack, roulette & poker variations are plenty. The machines are all modern, with all of the favorites found throughout the city. Should you want to stay on property for your stay, you will not be bored with your options.

For your dining options, the property has Freedom Beat which provides you food and music to enjoy. Because of the current health limitations, I recommend you confirm with the property about seating availability. Also on site is a casino bar called Furnace where you can drink and delight in the festive atmosphere. Art Bar is another on-site option where you can get your fill of coffee selections while enjoying featured works by local artists.
Just across the street, you will find the popular Pizza Rock. By the slice or pie, you will love their tasty pizza.
Our 1st evening was highlighted with a visit to Triple George Grill. Please check out my Instagram post/review  and pics about our experience there. If you want a wonderful fine dining meal at a quality place with exceptional food and service, @triplegeorgelv is your destination.

Last week, when we were being hosted by @downtown_grand they invited us to Triple George Grill which is just conveniently across the street from the hotel. Triple George Grill is just the type of place you want to visit when you are looking for a fine dining meal while in Vegas for some fun. @triplegeorgelv is a Las Vegas favorite and winner of the 2016 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award, and I can clearly see why they won that award. . From the moment we arrived, we were treated like special guests. Seated in a private booth that not only gives privacy but keeps you away from other guests which is helpful in these times. All stemware and glasses are covered with plastic for added safety. Of course, the staff wears masks and gloves to ensure we are as safe as possible while enjoying our meal. . Now, let's talk about the food. . We started with a cup of New England Clam chowder that was so fresh tasting and creamy that even my hubby who is not a chowder fan enjoyed it. . We then tried the Bone Marrow which is made with a Bacon Onion Jam which is something I have never experienced. It adds a sweet and savory flavor to the already delectable marrow. . I couldn't decide on the steak or seafood, so I ordered my Steak (seasoned with a special rub as one of their specials. I am embarrassed to say I lost my notes, but just ask about the steak with the special rub) with some perfectly cooked Scallops on top! . The hubby went with one of his favorites which is Chicken Parmesan over a bed of pasta. He said it was one of the best he has had, and I agree. . We both shared a side of the creamy and rich Lobster Mac & Cheese and always delicious Truffle Fries. Nothing could match better with a steak dinner and the hubby ate his share as well. . After such rich and satisfying food, we ordered the Bread Pudding with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream on top. Oh boy, we just had it until the last bite. . . #awmyposh #foodlv #dtlv #triplegeorgegrill #yummyfoodlv #foodtriplv #fudtripunli #foodstagram #foodiesofinstagram #foodblogger #foodpics #thrillist
