Fitzgeralds Hotel Casino has been a staple of the Downtown Las Vegas area for years. It is located right on Fremont Street, and is in the middle of all of the exciting action of Downtown and is identified by the giant letter “F” for Fitzgeralds within a clover. While from the outside it seems relatively small, Fitzgeralds is the only Downtown hotel with two floor dedicated to gambling with a total of 42,000 square feet. They have 940 slot machines and 29 table games. They are also the only casino in Nevada with Pai Gow Mania, a favorite for many. Fitzgeralds has an Irish theme, as the name would imply, and is known for friendly and attentive service.
Fitzgeralds is an older casino that has benefited from the recent renovations throughout the Downtown area. It is busy on summer weekends, holidays, and special events. This is a great place to stay for anyone who loves the Downtown area, and who wants to save money compared to Strip prices and usually hosts more of a “party” crowd.
Booking ahead is always recommended, but rooms are usually available except for on the busiest holidays and weekends.
Fitzgeralds has a relatively large casino floor by Downtown standards, but only when both floors of gambling are taken into account.

Limits are low on most tables and slots. They have a small Sports Book with 10 televisions.
Fitzgeralds has 624 rooms and 14 suites. It is a smaller hotel by both Strip and Downtown standards. The accommodations are clean and roomy, but as mentioned the casino is older and some say “outdated”.

Downtown usually has excellent rates for everything from the rooms to gambling, food, and shopping by Las Vegas standards, they feature very low limit gambling, most feel the restaurants are priced excellent for the quality food, and room rates are low depending on the season and how busy the hotel is.
