“We’re not a megaresort on the Las Vegas Strip, but we have one of the best sightlines for the upcoming race,” said Ellis Island Hotel & Casino Vice President of Development Christina Ellis in a statement. “As an official venue, we’ll host unique viewing parties and offering hotel packages to locals and visitors and most importantly provide the hospitality and fun we’ve been known for over the last 55 years.”

Ellis Island Hotel & Casino is the closest hotel-casino to the Las Vegas Grand Prix Paddock Building on Koval Lane. The operator is offering opportunities for grandstand viewing, its Front Yard beer garden, and room-and-ticket packages.

“One of the benefits of building a street circuit is that we can leverage existing venues along the track and partner to create fun, unique, viewing options that live up to the quality and standards that our fans expect from an F1 race,” Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix Chief Commercial Officer Emily Prazer. “Ellis Island will put their personal touch on the Las Vegas Grand Prix experience.”
