Main Street Station Hotel and Casino and BreweryEdit profile
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 Corporation. 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. 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 "Main Street Park Hotel" on an $82 million budget by Florida developer Bob Snow in the image of his then-highly successful Orlando attraction in August, 1991. The hotel/casino/club-hop in that form lasted less than a year.
