Why We Love This Hotel

  • It's worth spending a night here just to slip down the waterslide that runs through "The Tank" -- the Golden's Nugget's 200,000-gallon shark tank
  • A $15 million renovation in 2014 upgraded the rooms set within the Gold Tower
  • Two blocks from the Fremont Street Experience open mall

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.

The Claim Jumper restaurant was excellent and decent value.

The time share people were misleading, relentless, and generally made the walk to my elevator excruciating because passing them was the only route to my room. They absolutely would not take no for an answer.
