The hotel is very historical, you can tell they did their job to keep it immaculate, it is clean, they give you lots of information and at night the streets are very quiet and calm you can walk and feel the safe around, recommended.

Delightful little museum about the building of Hoover Dam including a video, scavenger hunt and hands on activities. All this for $2! Better than doing the dam tour....informative and fun.
