Downtown Vegas gem offers Chart House, Tank pool and shark aquarium

With the addition of the impressive Rush Tower, the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino has reconfirmed its place as downtown Las Vegas' most luxurious resort. Guests here can indulge in a variety of rooms, suites and amenities, including the notorious shark tank and pool deck, a luxury spa and full service salon, plus seven dining options. Take your pick of entertainment with impressionist comedian Gordie Brown, the Country Superstars Tribute show, Rush Lounge's Frankie Moreno Band, or dancing above the Fremont Street Experience at Gold Diggers.    

Highlights

  • Rush Tower rooms and amenities offer Strip-style luxury
  • The Tank pool complex features a 200-gallon shark aquarium, three-story waterslide, heated pool and private cabanas
  • Get some laughs with celebrity impressions of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jack Nicholson, and Elvis Presley at Gordie Brown LIVE
  • Dine at seven restaurants, including Vic & Anthony's and the Chart House aquarium restaurant
  • Just outside the doors, the Fremont Street Experience calls with its open-air canopy and gigantic multimedia screen

Rooms
Over 2,000 non-smoking rooms and suites across four towers offer a deluxe variety of accommodations at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino. Standard rooms in the luxurious Rush Tower are a generous 439 square feet and feature iPod docking stations, 42" plasma screens, DVD players, pillow-top beds and down comforters, and bathrooms with twin decolav sinks, a lighted makeup mirror and waterfall showerheads. The Nugget's spacious Carson Tower rooms are more formally styled, with marble lined bathrooms and pillow-top beds. More classic standard rooms in the Gold Tower include pillow-top beds and 42" plasma TVs, while Gold Club Rooms on the 16th and 17th floors offer more modern styling and concierge-level amenities. Suites in the Spa Tower, most of which are two-level, come with a wet bar, living and dining areas, large bathrooms with two-person spa tubs and dramatic views. No matter the tower, most rooms offer a variety of views that include the Vegas Strip, Spring Mountains and/or the pool deck. 
Features

Daredevils love the Golden Nugget's three-story waterslide for more than just the drop – the slide also plunges through the immense shark tank by way of a secure tube. Also on the third floor of The Tank, the secluded Hideout pool deck offers an adults-only scene with an infinity pool and the H20 Bar. Back inside, the 45,000 square-foot-casino draws gamers to its popular slot and video poker machines, table games, race and sports book and poker room. The Golden Nugget also offers select retail (including a jewelry shop and high-end boutique apparel), an arcade and a golf concierge. Cabanas and daybeds at both the Golden Nugget and Hideout pools are available for a fee. Free self- and valet parking is available.

Dining
As with most luxury Vegas resorts, dining options at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino range from seafood at Chart House with its 75,000 gallon tropical fish aquarium, Vic & Anthony's for steak, Red Sushi, Grotto Italian, Lillie's Asian Cuisine and The Grille. Start the day with coffee at Starbucks or breakfast at the Buffet. Beer aficionados appreciate the big selection of 40 different brews at the casino's International Beer Bar.

Very family friendly

The Golden Nuggett is the best hotel downtown in Las Vegas. The first time I visit the swimming pool was under construction and now that it is finished it beautiful. You can sit out on the lounge chairs to get a tan and go swimming during the day (family) and visit the bar and watch the fishes in the evening (spouse). The lobby, halloway, and hotel view were so beautiful. The hotel was also clean and had adequate space to include a sink with long counter for more than one person, more than enough hangers in the closets and two suitcase stands.

Great getaway

The Golden Nugget was quite comfortable. Had all the necessities, rooms, pools, restaurant and casino...etc. walk out one door and you are on freemont street with many other casinos and restraurants to visit. The staff was very friendly. I liked being in the old part of Las Vegas (downtown) Only minutes away from the strip, but was way to crowded for me.

Very family friendly

This hotel was very friendly and I would tell a ver comfortable, the only thing I did not have a coffe pot in my room and I like a lot of coffe so I went and bought a coffe pot. I did not like having to pay for the internet in my room they said it was $11.99 but when I check out they charge me $12.99 but other than that I thought that the Golden Nugget was a great fun place to stay.

Consumer friendly

The staff at the Golden Nugget was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were large with more than enough room for clothes in the closet and dresser drawers. The hotel and rooms were spotless. The buffet was great and so was the coffee shop. I would definitely stay there again!

It's in the heart of downtown Las Vegas and just a short walk to the other local casinos. It's also more comfortable outside since they covered Fremont street.

Very nice rooms

The Golden Nugget being one of the older hotel/casinos in Las Vegas was very nice. The rooms were large. The bathroom countertop space could have been better. Check in was a nightmare. The line was way too long. They should have had more people to work. Every time I walked through the lobby there was a long line. That would be my only complaint of this hotel, they need more people to work check in.
