Downtown Project Reopens Oasis

The renovated Oasis boutique hotel in Downtown Las Vegas, formerly the Gold Spike (l.), which reopened in September, showed off some of its new rooms last week. The hotel was rehabbed by the Downtown Project, Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh’s $350 million initiative to redevelop the East Fremont Street district.

The renovated Oasis hotel at the Gold Spike in Downtown Las Vegas, which underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation under the aegis of the Downtown Project, is the first hotel in the organization’s portfolio, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal.??

The renovation project included 44 rooms and six suites, which now have new bathrooms, new laminate flooring and new plumbing. “The rooms were taken down to the studs,” Downtown Project spokesperson Kim Schaefer said. Midweek rates for the rooms will be in the $49-$69 range.??

The new boutique hotel opened September 15, about two weeks before the Downtown Project announced 30 layoffs.
