A Cutting Edge Glass & Mirror of Las Vegas has been busy lately. We’ve had the pleasure of working with the one of the oldest casino on the downtown strip, The California Hotel. Did you know that the California Hotel was established in 1975? This made working on the project that much better. We were happy to work on one of the hotels that helped to start this amazing city of ours. We were contracted to renovate and totally reinstall many parts of their hotel rooms, on multiple floors. Essentially handling all the commercial glass for their brand-new renovation and remodel. It’s by far one of the larger projects we’ve been on in a while. As we said earlier though, it’s a privilege to work on a Las Vegas landmark such as the California Hotel.
Commercial Glass Services for the new remodel & renovation on the California Hotel were done by A Cutting Edge Glass & Mirror of Las Vegas, Nevada.
We’ve included a photo gallery that showcases some of the work we’re taking part in over at the California Hotel. If you’re in need of a commercial glass company in Las Vegas, Nevada, give us a call today to schedule an on-site consultation.

A Little Bit About the Famous California Hotel Located in Las Vegas, Nevada
The California Hotel and Casino (also known as The Cal) opened in 1975 at a cost of $10 million with a hotel and casino located in Downtown Las Vegas, Nevada near the Fremont Street Experience. When it opened it had 325 rooms which has since been expanded to 781.
The California has been owned by Boyd Gaming since it was built by Sam Boyd.
After facing slow business initially, Boyd soon began focusing on the Hawaiian market, offering Hawaiian food and encouraging a more casual atmosphere. He introduced vacation packages from the islands, with charter airfares as low as $9.90. An estimated 80-90% of visitors to Las Vegas from Hawaii stay at a Boyd property. Boyd’s Hawaiian marketing, which extended to the Fremont and Main Street Station with their later acquisitions, is credited with helping to build a large Hawaiian community in Las Vegas, which is sometimes called “the ninth island”.
In 1989, the hotel designated the term Golden Arm, after Stanley Fujitake rolled dice for three hours and six minutes in craps without losing.
In 1994 an additional tower was added and the remainder of the hotel was remodeled. The property is connected to Main Street Station by an enclosed walkway.
