California Hotel Casino, built in 1975, was the first Las Vegas property of what was to become Boyd Gaming.

The hotel features 781 relaxing guest rooms including 74 luxurious suites.

As you enter the California, you'll be welcomed by the richly-appointed lobby which is just a prelude to yet another highlight- the tropical motif of its guestrooms. The rooms' decor has taken a page from the Hawaiian home of many of its frequent visitors and is enchanting, comfortable, and a respite from the hustle and bustle of the casino. It offers a true island atmosphere, right in Downtown Las Vegas.

Travel across the "Bridge" that takes you over the traffic of Downtown's main thoroughfare, Main Street, and brings you right to Boyd Gaming's Victorian-themed casino, Main Street Station.

From the moment you open the door to your room at the Cal, you'll feel like you're visiting a tropical island paradise.
Your home away from home!
With its white plantation shutters and the tropical prints of the furnishings, you'll find it inviting and you'll want to linger a while. It's what you'd expect to find at the Cal, known for its Aloha hospitality.
