    I was for a time excited to return to LV in January and check out the new Lady Luck (Downtown Grand). Now it looks like I'll see a building minus the name spruced up with a new coat of paint.....and Empty! I thought with the El Cortez's new arrogance and the Plaza's new Resort Fee for its opulance it would have a fighting chance. It's smaller neighbor has returned and provides a decent place to stay that is clean and quiet, convenient, and quite affordable with a decent restaurant (Gold Spike). I thought with more floor space and rooms, the Lady would be the next jewel in the downtown revitalization. I'm sad for the Lady.

    If it ever opens I plan to visit. I still think Lady Luck is a better name than Downtown Grand.

    I haven't heard anything new (which isn't good) and I like Lady Luck better too!

    Customer service was always great there. They really tried to earn your patronage.
