In 1988, Charles M. Heers purchased 17.5 acres from the Howard Hughes estate, and later purchased an additional 10 acres. Heers' family also owned the Vacation Village hotel and casino. For over a decade, a life-sized ship advertised Heers' plans for the Caribbean resort, which never materialized because of high costs. As early as 1997, Heers approached Gary Ellis, owner of the nearby Ellis Island Casino & Brewery, about the possibility of assuming or managing operations of the hotel-casino that was planned for the property.
Construction on the 716-room Italian-themed Tuscany hotel began in January 2001, with a planned opening later that summer. At that time, an additional 306 rooms and a casino were planned to open in fall 2001, with the casino planned to be managed by the Ellis Island casino. The all-suite Tuscany hotel opened in December 2001. The Tuscany Suites was developed by Inland Empire Builders.
In August 2002, the casino's opening was planned for November 2002. The 60,000 square-foot casino ultimately had a soft opening on January 17, 2003, with 800 slot machines, and eight table games. An official grand opening was planned within one or two months, after the completion of a 40,000 square-foot convention center. The casino was expected to boost the hotel's occupancy.
The Tuscany cost $100 million to build, and was owned by Heers and Arizona contractor Gaylord Yost, as well as Heers' company, CMH Real Estate Development Inc., which also operated three Las Vegas-area apartment complexes. The Tuscany had hoped to primarily attract a clientele of tourists and local residents, as well as employees from larger resorts on the Las Vegas Strip.
Tuscany Casino reviews
A friend told me to stop here instead of gambling at the Casinos on the strip. I'm glad I did. They had some $5 3/2 blackjack. I spent a few hours playing there. I won some the first night and lost..... more »
This was our first visit to Tuscany. We always stay on the strip but decided to try something new. We were impressed. The room was large and clean. The grounds and pool were beautiful. We lived..... more »
This is a huge Resort! I love the Italian / Mediterranean look and feel. We had a late night supper in the pub one night on the resort and the prices were amazing. The one thing I noticed that the Tuscany lacked compared to other hotels in Las Vegas was the very slow service of the casino waitresses. We would wait and wait and wait before we were even served and then the waitress might come back one more time. When we went to other casinos the waitresses were very speedy and efficient.
Great place to stay away from the main Las Vegas strip. Offers a more quiet and intimate setting. Great restaurants and amenities. Fair price for a lot of room, king size bed, living room and small kitchen. Location is about 15 minutes to everything. I would stay here anytime.
