Boasting some of Las Vegas’ finest rooms and suites after a $380 million dollar transformation, it’s easy to understand why the Golden Nugget has earned the AAA Four Diamond Award for 32 years running! Accommodation is divided between 4 majestic towers with wonderful views of the Las Vegas Strip, the Spring Mountains and the hotel’s incredible pool. Then there's the Tank, as the swimming complex is known, comes complete with a shark tank, 3-storey waterslide and 13 private cabanas for hire. There’s also a 2-storey infinity pool, aptly named The Hideout, which is strictly for adults only. Other temptations include a superb spa with steam rooms, sauna, massage and beauty treatments plus a state-of-the-art fitness centre to work off those American-sized portions! Several restaurants are at your disposal, including Vic and Anthony’s, one of the country’s finest steakhouses. Alternatively, head to Chart House for sumptuous seafood, Lillie’s for Pan-Asian cuisine or Grotto for Italian fare. Come sundown, Gold Diggers is the place to be with a lively atmosphere, DJs and exotic cocktails. There’s also live entertainment courtesy of the Frankie Moreno Band and impressionist, Gordie Brown. An incredible hotel with an incredible range of amenities, look out in particular for the Hand of Faith in the lobby - a 16-pound gold nugget found in Australia in 1980 with a metal detector just six inches below ground – now that’s Lady Luck at her finest!

We stayed at the Golden Nugget, Las Vegas from November 26th through the 29th. Check-in was super fast. I requested a room away from Freemont Street, due to the noise and close to the elevator... Read more . They gave us just what we wanted. Because this trip was around the Thanksgiving Holiday there were numerous people that showed up on Wednesday evening. Got pretty crowded! We again stayed in the Rush Tower and the room was great. Nice and clean! The cleaning staff was there every day at about 9:00 in the morning and did a great job of cleaning the room. All of the staff met in the hall were pleasant and said good morning or hello. This is a great place to stay and we will book here again in the future. Read less
Stayed at the Nugget for 3 nights on business. Generally, I was very pleased with the product and service they offer: Pros Rooms look like they have been renovated recently, mine was in the... Read more Carson Tower and was very well maintained, clean, comfortable Thank you for having Starbucks open 24 hours, little expensive but very good coffee I was helped twice by "back of the house staff" (I think banquet housemen - my bad for not getting their names) who went out of their way to direct me to the meeting room I needed. One walked me half the distance. Very impressed, they understand hospitality. Cons The in-room coffee was $10 for 4 cups. No thanks. Paid for the internet, had to have it for work. While I am ok with paying for it, the wireless signal should have been a little stronger. The concierge in the Carson Tower should smile. They don't look like they like their jobs. Kind of difficult to do work in the room, no real desk to operate from (my laptop is on my lap right now) Read less
Just got back from a 2 day stay here. My second time at this hotel. I really like it here. First off, both times I've stayed in the Jr. Corner Suite in the Rush Tower, so these are the only... Read more rooms I have knowledge of. The rooms are very large, very clean, with large bathroom and a wonderfully deep bathtub that is delightful for soaking in. Go to one of the two LUSH stores on the strip and get a couple of bathbombs or bubblebars and enjoy a hot bath. Yes, the rooms are decorated in earthy chocolate browns, and somewhat dark, but I enjoyed it and found the color scheme very relaxing after being in the bright lights and sounds of the Fremont Experience. And if light is needed there were plenty of lamps available and huge windows. The windows provided beautiful views of the lights of the city. The room here is very quiet. I never once heard anyone walking above me, or people in other rooms around me. The walk from the self parking garage to the tower itself was very short. I did not try the valet service. The bathroom here contained double sinks, a plus for when two people try to get ready at the same time. It is stocked with very nice toiletries and includes boxed Dental Care kits, which is fancy for traveling toothbrush and toothpaste, but a nice touch none the less. The king size bed was extremely comfortable as were the down pillows. There is a seating area with L shaped sofa and ottoman, two TVs (don't ask, I can't see having them both on at same time) and then a little table with two chairs, a separate area with lighted magnifying mirror that was great for spreading out makeup. I am not a die hard gambler so being able to just walk off the casino floor to the elevator and go relax in this room was a plus for me. The only reason I don't give this place 5 dots (excellent) is that you have to pay for wifi and it was $13 for every 24 hrs. And I'm a firm believer that in this day and age all hotels should offer FREE wifi. So I never did use the wifi and can't comment on its performance. The pool is heated and very nice, the shark tank is cool and you can swim right up to it and watch the fish. And even though these past two days the temperature got to the low 30s the pool was still being used. The hot tub area is also nice with fire pits around. The only place I ate at was the Buffet, breakfast and dinner, it was not gourmet dining, but the food was good, hot food hot, cold food cold, and lots of choices. Reasonably priced. Next time I stay there I'll be trying the Asian Restaurant as it looked really nice and people were saying it was good. Here are a few tips I've discovered staying here: The Fremont Experience is right out the door. Yes it can be loud, but it didn't bother me in my room. Not sure about the other towers. If you like the sound of real money falling out of the machines there is a little casino (La Bayou) just out the door and down a bit from the Golden Nugget. Definitely not fancy by any means but fun. If you are a coffee drinker, they have Keurig coffee machines in the rooms BUT they charge you $10 for a box of 4 coffee pods. Not even sure what flavor they are. SO BRING YOUR OWN and save some bucks. They are very good with the cocktails if you are playing, many times coming around before I had finished the current one. If you are checking in the Rush Tower there is a "secret room" to the left of the Chart House (at the entry) where you can check in at and get free water bottles, juice, and M&Ms. Take some water as the Fiji Water bottles in the rooms are $7 ea. And when you order a cocktail also ask for water at that time, comes in a bottle so you can take that back to your room as well. The self parking garage is free and very easy to navigate, just show your room key as you're leaving and no charge. If you must use a taxi they are right out the door, so there is no wait time. A cab ride to the strip can be approx $20 or more depending on traffic. However, if you are on a budget or just trying to save more money to put in the machines (and won't be needing the services of a designated driver), you can easily drive to the Strip. My two favorite spots are the free valet at Caesar's Palace (for about a fourth of the price (I'm talking tips) of a one way trip in a cab you can drive up and have them park for you. Then easily walk about that area of the strip or have a lovely meal at the Palace) or the free parking at the MGM Grand, there is lots of it and a quick walk through the casino and out the front and you're on the Strip across the street from the NYNY or next to the M&M store. And getting back to the Golden Nugget is easy. All in all, this place is nice, clean, and I found the staff to be very pleasant. I'll be back. Read less
we have stayed in Golden Nuggets Hotel and Casino. The staff are always pleasant and helpful, there is a bar and they make pizza it was good. there is a nice selection of table and slot games and the... Read more hotel rooms are comfortable. The buffet is consistently rated the best. We would never consider staying and playing anywhere else in Las Vegas. Read less
My husband and I stayed here over Thanksgiving as stopover before heading over to Zion National Park. We had odd flight times, so we decided to spend the night in Vegas on the way in and before... Read more returning home, as well. The first night, we arrived in the early morning hours and really felt that we just needed a bed to sleep in for a few hours before we headed out onto the road towards Zion, so we chose to stay in the cheapest room option - the Carson Tower. It really reminded me of a Holiday Inn room. It was clean and had a comfortable bed. For the price, it really was all that we needed and provided for a comfortable stay. Before returning home, we decided that we wanted to spend an extra night in Vegas and do some of the traditional tourist activities (gambling and a nice dinner), so we chose to stay in the new Rush Tower in the jr. suite. We loved the room. It is nicely decorated in clean, modern lines and the beds were plush and comfortable. There was a flat screen TV in the room, as well as a really big, spacious bathroom. If you've never been to Vegas, I think it's worth it to stay on the strip, however, if you've been to Vegas as many times as we have (almost yearly), downtown is the way to go and the Golden Nugget is the best hotel option downtown. Downtown Vegas has the cheap blackjack tables and the pool at the Golden Nugget is great for hanging out during the day. It's definitely worth a visit! Read less
