The Orleans Hotel and Casino is a hotel with 1,885 rooms and a 135,000-square-foot (12,500 m2) casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Owned by Boyd Gaming Corporation, it includes the large multipurpose Orleans Arena that can be converted into an ice rink. It is a major home for poker in the Las Vegas metropolitan area and was one of the biggest poker rooms in Las Vegas prior to the 21st century poker boom.[citation needed].

Though The Orleans attracts a fair number of tourists, it is primarily considered to be a locals casino. It is located about 0.8 miles (1.3 km) west of the Las Vegas Strip, but offers from 9:00 AM to 12:30 AM a free shuttle bus approximately every 30 minutes to Bill's Gamblin' Hall and Saloon, which is just across the street from Bally's Las Vegas and Caesars Palace.

History

The Hotel and Casino opened in 1996. When the casino first opened, it did not perform up to expectations. In 1999 a major addition to the casino and other amenities was added. The success of these changes has been demonstrated by the continued expansions in later years.

The Orleans Arena was added in 2003. A second hotel tower was added in 2004.

The location has the notoriety of having hosted the final concert performance from icon stand-up comedian George Carlin in June 2008.
