From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (wikipedia.org)

Eldorado Resort Casino is a hotel and casino located in Downtown Reno, Nevada. It anchors a network of connected hotel-casinos in the downtown Reno core that included Circus Circus Reno and Silver Legacy Reno and are owned and operated by Eldorado Resorts.

History

Don Carano opened the Eldorado on May 26, 1973 with 282 guest rooms, two restaurants and 10,000 square feet of gaming space with 200 slots and 12 table games. It included a lobby, registration area, coffee shop, cocktail lounge, specialty dinner house and gaming area. Also incorporated into the property were a convention room accommodating up to 600 people, a swimming pool and executive suites.

In 1979, the success of the Eldorado Resort Casino prompted what would be the first of many expansions and improvements. Guestrooms were brought to a total of 411 with a further expansion completed in September 1985 adding 20,000 square feet of gaming area and four new restaurants. By 1989, the Eldorado had grown to 814 hotel rooms and boasted its own on-site bakery, pasta and gelato shop and butcher shop. In 1992, the Eldorado added a 10 story parking garage for added convenience to guests.

The completion of another transformation for the Eldorado happened in 1995. Coinciding with the construction of Silver Legacy Reno, a 50/50 joint venture between Eldorado Resorts and MGM Resorts International, the Eldorado added a crossover to the new downtown property connected by the first ever micro-brewery in a casino, The Brew Brothers. The exclusive Spa Tower was created, adding 10 floors of luxury accommodations; a 10,175 square foot convention center was opened as well as a 580-seat Broadway-style showroom. A coffee roasting company was added to the list of on-site services and the casino now totaled 78,987 square feet with more than 1,500 slot machines, 55 table games, a keno lounge, full-service state-of-the-art race and sportsbook and poker room.

In 2016, Eldorado Resorts announced that it expects to invest more than $50 million in enhancements. Eldorado’s master plan for the three connected properties, which span eight city blocks in downtown Reno, also includes renovation of more than 4,100 guest rooms. The properties’ upgrade announcement comes a week after the company’s agreement to acquire Isle of Capri Casinos.
