Clarion Hotel and Casino, formerly known as Debbie Reynolds Hollywood Hotel and Greek Isles Hotel & Casino, is a hotel/casino located in Paradise, Nevada, one block off the Las Vegas Strip. The hotel originally opened in 1972 as The Royal Inn Casino, and also operated under the names Royal American Hotel and Casino and The Paddlewheel Hotel Casino before being purchased by Debbie Reynolds in 1993. After Reynolds sold the property in 1999, it was briefly owned by the World Wrestling Federation, acted as a service hotel for airline employees, and was stylistically altered to become the short-lived Greek Isles Hotel.
It is a 202-room hotel and a 7,000 sq ft (650 m2) casino on 6 acres (2.4 ha) of land.
In 1999 the hotel was sold to the World Wrestling Federation. The WWF sold it to Mark IV Realty Group in 2000; Mark IV partnered with Delta Air Lines and United Airlines to turn it into a crew hotel, with a major renovation that was completed in summer 2001.
In July 2007, the hotel was sold to a real-estate developer (DI Development Group) for $48.8 million; the developer announced in January 2008 that he was pursuing financing to redevelop the site, replacing it with a mixed-use development, proposed to include 780 hotel rooms, a 77,000-square-foot (7,200 m2) casino and 71,200 sq ft (6,610 m2) of convention, retail and, restaurant space. The developer never came through and the Hotel tried expanding operations.
The hotel was forced into bankruptcy on April 6, 2009 by its creditors. Canpartners Reality (owned by Canyon Capital Reality Partners and Spectrum Group Management) took over control on August 19, 2009 taking possession of the foreclosed property. As of April the hotel has been branded a Clarion Hotel and is the only Clarion with a casino. Currently the 300 seat theater built by Debbie Reynolds has a Sunday Gospel Brunch and a nightly show is in the works along with the re-opening of one of the wedding chapels.
