Las Vegas History Series - Fitzgeralds Hotel & Casino
Fitzgeralds Hotel & Casino

In 1987 the former Sundance Hotel, owned by mob affiliated Moe Dalitz, was sold to the Lincoln Management Group (later to be known as the Fitzgeralds Management Group).  They reopened the hotel with the new name Fitzgeralds Hotel & Casino.  
 
The Fitzgeralds Hotel & Casino quickly became a focal point of downtown Las Vegas popular with tourists and locals alike.  Unfortunately, popularity does not always mean financial success and in 2001 the Fitzgeralds Management Group filed for bankruptcy and The Majestic Star Casino LLC, owned by Don Barden bought the Fitzgeralds.  This purchase made Don Barden the first African-American casino owner in Las Vegas; Don Barden would own the Fitzgeralds until his death in 2011. 
 
After Don Barden's death his estate sold the Fitzgeralds to the Stevens brothers, the owners of the nearby Golden Gate Casino.  The Stevens brothers renovated the hotel at a cost of $22 million dollars and in the Fall of 2012 rebranded the Fitzgeralds as The D Hotel & Casino, proving that in Las Vegas "everything old is new again."
