Golden Nugget Hotel in Las Vegas - A Quick Review

Updated on January 6, 2012

Golden Nugget Location and History

The Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino was built in 1946 and is located on Fremont Street in Las Vegas. This area was once the main part of Las Vegas that appealed to vacationers and gamblers. Now it remains as sort of a reminder of Las Vegas' past. The newer hotels and casinos are being built on the Las Vegas Strip, which is located a few miles to the south, but I've found that they often lack the charm and grittiness of the Fremont Street hotels.

In addition to a really cool shark tank, the Golden Nugget is also home to the largest gold nugget in the entire world. Called the Hand of Faith, it was found in Australia and first put on display at the Golden Nugget back in 1981.

Golden Nugget Hotel Rooms

The good part about staying in the bad part of Las Vegas is that the rooms are dirt cheap. If you don't mind relatively small casinos and not having a nightclub and a huge theater attached to the hotel, staying on Fremont Street makes sense. Here are some of the room options available at the Golden Nugget:

Gold Tower Deluxe: includes a 42 inch plasma TV, a king size or two double beds, and up to 4 person occupancy. The nightly rate on a weekday is $59 for this room. At a Strip hotel this same room would cost around $150.

Rush Tower Deluxe: Pretty much the same as Gold Tower Deluxe except newer and better. Starting at $69 a night.

Gold Club Luxury: TVs in both the bedroom and bathroom, marble vanities and a general upgraded luxury decor. VIP check-in and a VIP line pass at the buffet. Access to VIP Lounge. Unfortunately, maximum occupancy is just two people. Starts at $89 a night.

Parlor Suite: Full VIP access, separate bar, whirlpool in the bathroom. Starts at $109.

Spa Suite: Two floors and over 1900 square feet of space. VIP everything. Great views. Double door entrance. Luxury bathroom. This is one of the best deals in Las Vegas starting at only $309 a night. Reserve well ahead of time, because these get booked up pretty fast in my experience. I've included a video I found that has a full walk-through of one of these suites.

So there you have it. Golden Nugget might not be for everyone, but if you're looking to save some money or even if you're looking to live it up, this hotel has some good options for you.
