Hankin’s D Hotel in Las Vegas Named Garaventa Lift Project of the Month

The overpass to the D Hotel in Las Vegas has a new Garaventa Genesis Enclosure wheelchair lift located adjacent to the stairs. The D Hotel, renovated in 2012, originally opened as the Sundance Hotel in 1980 but the owner was a mobster, so the local authorities made him use his minions to run the place. In 1983, the minions were charged with skimming. The mobster, a guy named Moe Dalitz, applied to take over running it himself, but the Gaming Commission stalled until he was persuaded to sell.

After a couple more owners and names, the hotel was sold to the current owners, Derek and Greg Stevens, in 2011. The renovated hotel now features The Longbar, reportedly the longest bar in the State of Nevada.

This installation was completed by Hankin Specialty Elevator. Congratulations to Neil, Brian, Dave and the rest of the crew. Thank you for submitting photos.
