California Hotel Casino Las Vegas Review

The California Hotel is located smack dab in downtown Las Vegas. It’s been around for decades. The gaming floor of the California Hotel is smaller than the newer hotels, but it’s a great place. There are some great restaurants at the California Hotel. The hotel offers both free parking and valet parking. The second floor has many specialty stores and a great place to grab lunch. The first thing you will notice upon entering the California Hotel is the large amount of Hawaiian and Asian people there.

The California Hotel does a lot of promotion in Hawaii and as a result, it’s really the place with the most concentration of Hawaiians. In fact, the entire feel of the California hotel is of a tropical island. The California Hotel prides itself on what it calls the “Aloha Spirit”. They claim you will feel it right away and you will. The California Hotel offers over 800 rooms to guests. It’s located right by the Fremont Street Experience. A quick one minute walk and you are right there enjoying the shows.

If you want to visit the Las Vegas strip, you can drive or take a taxi and be there within 10 minutes usually. The city’s CAT bus terminal is a couple blocks from the California Hotel. The buses run all over the city, including right down the Las Vegas Strip. Be warned that if you take a bus from downtown to the Las Vegas Strip during a busy time, the trip can be very long. That’s because there are many stops along the way. A bus ride from the downtown hub to the middle of the Las Vegas Strip could take up to an hour or so.

Gaming at California Casino

Many locals and returning patrons refer to the California Hotel Casino Las Vegas in downtown Las Vegas simply as "the Cal." No matter how you refer to the property one thing is certain, you can get your game on here! With over 1,000 slots and video poker machines and 28 gaming tables on the 35,848 square foot gaming floor it's easy to find the action. Whether you play craps, blackjack, roulette, Pai Gow poker - enjoy time in the keno lounge with up to 1,000 games on a single ticket, or want to bet the spread in the satellite-fed Sports Book - you can get your game on. If you are a craps player, be sure to ask your host if you can taste a bit of history and play on the table where Stanley Fujitake once held the dice for a world record setting 3 hours and six minutes - maybe some of that luck is still in the air.
