Looks like the owners of Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall and Saloon in Las Vegas had bigger fish to fry.  Today, they pulled up their gangplank for a complete renovation of the property.

Bill’s, named for casino magnate Bill Harrah, sits smack in the center of the Strip, with great views of the Bellagio fountains.  There is no better location in Las Vegas.

This was our favorite place to stay in Vegas — what with their Victorian stained glass windows in the showers and genuine hospitality.  With a “Friends and Family” coupon code, you could easily snag a room here for $37 per night.

This kitschy, classic property — well known to bargain hunters — will be transformed into a “boutique lifestyle” hotel and casino.  What a shame!
