Ewasko photographs The Orleans Hotel and Casino Las Vegas
The flair and flavor of the "Big Easy" meet the glamour of Las Vegas in this unique property where Mardi Gras is celebrated 365 days a year. The original hotel tower designed by architect Leo A. Daly had 840 rooms, and a 586-room expansion tower was added in 1997. In 2004, design, planning, and architectural firm Klai Juba Wald completed an expansion of the casino and cinema complex, and also added a 22-story 460-room tower, a 2,500-spot parking garage, and 9,000-seat arena. The Orleans Hotel and Casino is operated by Boyd Gaming Corporation.
