Most visitors visit Las Vegas and never leave the Vegas Strip. That makes sense because there’s so much to see and do. After a few visits to Las Vegas, some guests begin venturing off the Vegas Strip to see what else Sin City has to offer.
The D Las Vegas opened on Fremont Street in 2012. It took less than a decade for the casino-hotel to become a favorite for revelers in downtown Las Vegas. The good gaming rules, clean and modern hotel rooms at affordable prices, and party atmosphere draw all kinds of visitors to the property.
