The New Rooms At Boulder Station

Boulder Station Renovations

Boulder Station announced earlier today that they have completed a full renovation of all 300 of its hotel rooms and the result, at least based on the official photoshops, is pretty spiffy, particularly if you are a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals.

Rooms come in king and dual queen configurations and all feature pillow top mattresses, vinyl headboards and flat screen tv's.

The decor choices are fabulous, with clean lines, and great texture contrasts between the bed throws, decorative pillows, headboard and the neato nightstand lamp.

One of the guiding principles in hotel/real estate photography is to never show two corners (or three walls) in a photograph as doing so gives the viewer a true sense of room dimensions. This is how to make smaller rooms look quite spacious.

For the money - advertised as 'starting at $29/night' but going for $64/$89 this weekend - these rooms could be a nice off strip alternative. If only they didn't charge that gosh darn $14.99 "Hotel Amenity Fee".

Very nice update, for a budget room. Much more cohesive and aesthically pleasing than the Flaming Fab rooms.

they most certainly "look" pretty nice, especially at that price point... ill have to check out what is included in the resort fee *blergh*

With their pesky little bankruptcy issue behind them, The Fertittas seem to be on a spending spree. Ironically, Boulder Strip numbers have been surprisingly good despite that area being a serious foreclosure hot-spot. They have a contingent of drive-in customers who just really like Boulder/AZ Charlie's/Sam's Town/Cannery.

I believe it was David McKee who recently reported that Fertittas are testing the waters regarding putting a water park on the land they own south of Palace Station. Water park, my ass. They originally bought up all that land looking to do a major expansion of Palace. With the demise of The Sahara, Palace is poised to compete head-on with Circus Circus for drive-in traffic and Palace has been busy as hell the past few months. One has to wonder if they are itching to move forward with at least some of the original expansion plans they had when they bought up half the surrounding neighborhood.

Sunset and Texas Stations were pretty nice last time I was there ( but for the resort fee already mentioned ), I've never stayed at Boulder and heard bad things about Palace, if they continue with these improvements, maybe a 1 day stay at Boulder will be worth checking out, specially with those prices.
