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
  • 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.

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.

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

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

the music from the band played past 12 midnight and was quite loud, and we were on the 22nd floor. maid service was bad - moved all my belongings into a pile and left them there. Took away our shampoo and other minor items the chute was under repair and we couldn't use it. some confusion about my bill, still don't know if they got it right.

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.
