The Silverton Casino Hotel will expand with the addition of a 390-room hotel tower with completion expected sometime in 2016 (according to a report published yesterday by Vegas Inc ). The tower will be erected on a lot behind the property's 1500 space parking garage. The addition of this tower will more than double the existing number of guest rooms (currently 300) at the property.
The Silverton is reminiscent of a rustic mountain lodge, with a unique decor and theme among Las Vegas resorts. The existing property decor features earth tones, log beams, stone, and a 117,000 gallon saltwater aquarium with sharks, stingrays, and tropical fish. On occasion, a mermaid appears as well. The aquarium is also used to perform wedding ceremonies for couples so inclined.
The property is also home to the 165,000 sq. ft. Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World with an array of hunting, boating, fishing, camping, and other outdoor gear. Surrounding the 90,000 sq. ft. casino floor are numerous restaurant and bar options, including the wallet-friendly Sundance Grill that we've highlighted in previous articles for its dining specials (see linked articles below).
The Silverton is located at 3333 Blue Diamond Rd. just west of Las Vegas Blvd about ten minutes south of Mandalay Bay. Phone 702-263-7777 for further info.
