Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa is a hotel, casino, and resort spa located in the Green Valley planned community in Henderson, Nevada. It is a joint venture of Station Casinos and The Greenspun Corporation (TGC); each entity holds a 50% stake in the property.[1]

The property offers 8 restaurants, a 50,000 sq ft (4,600 m2) casino, The Spa at Green Valley Ranch, and 490 guest rooms and suites. While a locals casino, the property was designed with an upscale element[2] and draws many out-of-town visitors.[3] The hotel is adjacent to The District, a mixed-use development.

History[edit]

Looking east

On March 13, 2000, Station Casinos announced that they would build a resort-casino in the Green Valley neighborhood. The original expected cost of the project was to be $280 million. [4]

The District at Green Valley Ranch[edit]

The District at Green Valley Ranch was added as a multi-use project directly to the east of the resort in April 2004. The property includes retail stores and restaurants on the first level and luxury condominiums on the upper levels, as well as standalone restaurants and commercial office buildings. A second phase of the District was opened in August 2005, further to the east, and includes retail shops and commercial office space. The Perlman Design Group designed the project.

Film and television appearances[edit]

American Casino, a reality television series for the Discovery Channel and Travel Channel based on the daily tasks of various casino employees, was filmed here in 2004.[5][6]

Several episodes of the hit show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation were also filmed on site.[7]

The tomahawk steak was featured on the food network in early 2012 as well.
