The D Las Vegas is a modern, 638-room mid-range hotel located on Fremont Street, the kitschy party artery of Downtown Las Vegas. The hotel pays homage to its Old Vegas heritage with a vintage casino upstairs (you'll find penny slots and a rare original toy horse racing track), but the main casino is thoroughly contemporary. There are also several nods to the state of Michigan: The hotel is named for the owner Derek's nickname as well as his hometown, Detroit, while both Andiamo Steakhouse and the hot dog joint American Coney Island hail from Michigan and have never before opened locations outside of the state. A long bar along the outside of the building draws in Fremont Street passerby with scantily clad waitresses (who dance on top of the bar at night), flair bartending, and yard-long drinks. Rooms have red, white, and black decor; flat-screen TVs; and iPod docks -- they're great for the price, if not luxurious.
