I hadn't stayed in downtown Las Vegas for years, so I wanted to change things up a bit on my last trip and give downtown a shot. I chose the Golden Nugget. It's one of the oldest hotels and casinos in Las Vegas and was started in 1946. It's a bit of a Las Vegas landmark,
Check-in was quick, friendly and painless. I had a room in the Carson Tower. I was told a nonsmoking king bedded room was not available like I had booked, but they did have a nonsmoking double for me. This was no big deal as I was traveling alone and really didn't care, however if you had your heart set on a king bed, this would have been a disappointment. There are several different towers and the hotel is a bit confusing as there are so many areas to it.
My room was a little dated with a beige and brown color, however the upkeep was top notch. Even thought this is an old hotel, they do a wonderful job with the upkeep and maintenance of the property. My room was extremely clean. One area that did need some care was the hall way on my floor, the carpets were very worn and stained. I would compare this room to similar rooms that I had at The Luxor, Treasure Island or even the Mirage.
The pool is extremely popular and unique. It has a shark tank in the middle of the pool and one can take a glass tube thrill ride through the tank and see the sharks up close.
The hotel has a large casino and I did very well at this casino. The restaurants are plentiful and the steak house is one of the best in Las Vegas. It also has a Starbucks in the lobby.
I found the staff to be helpful and friendly. I have to say that next time I plan to stay downtown, I will pick the Golden Nugget once again!
