The Golden Nugget Las Vegas offers great value because it’s located Downtown rather than on the Strip. A classic Old Vegas-style hotel two blocks from the Fremont Street Experience open mall, the Golden Nugget is a large resort with four towers, eight restaurants and four bars. The newer Rush Tower has 20 percent larger guest rooms than the Gold and Carson Towers. The Gold Tower got a $15 million makeover in 2014.
The property has two large performance venues, a spa and a casino with favorites like Three Card Poker and Let It Ride, but the hotel’s main attraction is The Tank, a 200,000-gallon shark tank. The novelty? A 30-foot transparent waterslide tunnels through The Tank, where you glide past zebra, tiger and nurse sharks. After, you can take a Tank tour with a marine biologist or relax at the Hideout infinity pool.
Another plus is you don't pay the nightly resort fees (up to $25 per night) that many area hotels charge. Instead, guests at the Golden Nugget pay only a $5.65 daily Downtown destination fee that includes access to the seven-block open-air pedestrian mall outside of the property.
