golden nugget las vegasIt may be located in the heart of downtown, but the Golden Nugget has all the attributes of a top class Las Vegas Strip hotel. This is a location that holds a special place in Vegas history, but it is also a hotel that refuses to dwell in the past. The Golden Nugget is a vibrant resort location that spills out onto the action on Fremont Street.

There are four towers in the hotel, each of which holds stylish rooms that the guests will love. Given their choice, though, most would likely choose the Rush Tower, as that is home to some of the most luxurious suites in Vegas. Every single detail of these rooms has been upgraded to deliver the perfect hotel experience, with 42-inch plasma TV’s, pillow-top mattresses, contemporary furnishings, and stunning views available in every suite.

As great as the rooms are, you will want to get out and experience the entertainment that the Golden Nugget has to offer. Share a space with hundreds of celebrities, all voiced by the amazing impressionist Gordie Brown. Live music is always playing somewhere in the hotel, and you can also step outside and be right in the middle of Viva Vision and the incredible light shows that are part of the Fremont Street Experience.

Take a slide down the three-story enclosed slide and try to pretend you aren’t afraid when you zip through the shark-filled aquarium. The pool area comes complete with daybeds and private cabanas that allow you to soak up the Nevada sun in peace. If you want to cool off with a beverage by the pool, you can get your drink on at the H2O bar. If you want some adult fun in the water, head up to the infinity-edge pool, called the Hideout, which can be found on the third level of The Tank.

We briefly mentioned the aquarium when talking about the water slide, but there is another way to get a great view of its contents. That can be found at the Chart House restaurant, where the bar wraps around the 75,000-gallon, tropical fish filled behemoth. If your food tastes are more on the Asian side of things, you will love what’s on the menu at Lillie’s Asian Cuisine and Red Sushi. A classic take on the steakhouse can be found at Vic & Anthony’s, where succulent cuts of meat are served up in austere surroundings. If you are in a bit of a rush, simply head to The Buffet and grab what you need before heading out for some Vegas-style fun.

There is certainly plenty of that to be found, with Gold Diggers on the second floor of the hotel the perfect place to take in the Fremont Street Experience. The bar inside Gold Diggers is a beauty, and there is often live music on tap, with plenty of space to get up and dance when the mood takes you. Head back downstairs and you can try all kinds of delicious cocktail concoctions at the super-hip Rush Lounge. If you prefer the taste of hops, try the International Beer Bar, where you will find 40 beers from all over the world. If you want to be close to the Fremont Street action, check out Bar 46, which spills out onto the street beyond the front doors.

You also have the opportunity to rest and relax when you spend some time at the Spa and Salon, which features a sauna, steam room, whirlpool, and a fitness center for those that want to stay in shape. They also offer a number of packages that help you look your nest for a big night out, or which can help you get back to your best after a night out in the town.

Guests that like to get in on the gambling action can do so in the fully-loaded casino, with tables galore, the hottest slots, and a country club style race and sports book all available. Take your winnings and go shopping to the great shops found within the resort. Be sure to stop by and take a look at the largest gold nugget in the world, or maybe get one of your own at the Gold to Go ATM.

If you want to have a vacation in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, The Golden Nugget is the place you need to book your stay. Everything you need under one roof, and a world of excitement right outside the front door.
