Why We Love It

  • 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
  • Balances the feel of a Las Vegas strip property with old-school Vegas charm
  • 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, nine restaurants and four bars. The newer Rush Tower has 20 percent larger guest rooms than the Gold and Carson Towers. 

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.

First hotel I have ever stayed where they didn't have complimentary coffee. You have to rent a coffee machine for $27 and buy the coffee to go in it at $16 for 4 cups of coffee. Weird

Unfortunately the slide through "The Tank" was closed and we were hoping to do that. It's one of the reasons we chose to stay there.

The only real downside I saw was that the rooms weren't really as "renovated" or "refreshed" as they made them out to be.

I did like it at check-in that we were pulled out of the regular line to and taken to the VIP check-in as soon as they saw a wheelchair. There was water for us in a very nice lady to get our rooms. They were very accommodating compared to lady I spoke to on the phone the day before who said I was going to be in a smoking ADA room.
Other Comments
The golden nuggets idea of a ADA room is not to The Standard or a wheelchair. There was no roll-in shower toilet was small with ADA height. Mattress was too soft. Access to electrical outlets very limited period in non-smoking room was still Smokey in the hall. The reservation I made almost a month before when I called the hotel said I had to be in the smoking area. I think the fees should be reduced for ADA we don't use the facility. Did not appreciate charges for coffee in room. No place to hang a long dress in closet. The room lighting was bad. TV would pixelate.
