From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (wikipedia.org)

The Main Street Station Hotel and Casino and Brewery is a hotel and casino located in Downtown Las Vegas, Nevada. It is owned by Boyd Gaming. The casino is connected to California Hotel and Casino by an enclosed skywalk over Main Street.

Main Street Station offers a self-guided tour which includes a portion of the Berlin Wall, stained glass from the Lillian Russell Mansion, doors and facade from the Kuwait Royal Bank, doors from the George Pullman Mansion, Louisa May Alcott pullman car, chandeliers from the Coca-Cola building and Figaro Opera House, and various statues. The portion of the Berlin Wall is located in the men’s restroom and has urinals affixed to it.

History

The property opened as the Holiday International in 1978. The property’s casino, operated by Major Riddle, closed in September 1980 after going into bankruptcy. The hotel, a Holiday Inn franchise, closed in 1984, following an extended strike by workers.

The property reopened in 1987 as the Park Hotel and Casino, developed by Japanese investor Katsuki Manabe. The Park closed in 1990.

Main Street Station was initially proposed as a redevelopment project, Church Street Station, controversially including a strip-frontage property acquired via eminent domain whose valuation persists in litigation. Failing to obtain the property in time, the casino-hotel was developed from the existing Park hotel on an $82 million budget by Florida developer Bob Snow in the image of his then-highly successful Orlando attraction, also called Church Street Station, in August 1991. The hotel/casino/club-hop in that form lasted less than a year.

Boyd Gaming purchased the defunct property in 1993 for $16.5 million, and also acquired an adjacent lot from the city to use for a parking garage. After spending another $45 million on renovations, Boyd reopened Main Street Station in November 1996.
