Hotel Addict: Golden Nugget Las Vegas

You remember the Golden Nugget Las Vegas from when you were a kid. But chances are you didn’t know how much sophisticated flair the place has. Situated in the heart of the Fremont Street Experience, the Golden Nugget truly is a gem in Downtown Las Vegas.

Kick off with the most recent addition to the property, the Rush Tower, which is home to plush rooms outfitted in contemporary style and accented with views of the city and the neighboring Las Vegas mountain range. Now that’s only the tip of the iceberg, the property features a host of one-bedroom suites all decked out in posh decor and complete with a living space, plasma TVs and a wet bar.

But because no one comes to Las Vegas to spend their whole trip in the room, the Golden Nugget is filled with activity and good food. Kick off your stay with a fabulous dinner of surf and turf at the Chart House or just make it easy on yourself and experience what’s been voted one of America’s top ten steakhouses--Vic & Anthony's. The Golden Nugget offers additional dining options as well including Grotto, Lillie’s Asian Cuisine and Red Sushi among others.

Now you’re ready to party. Experience nightlife at Gold Diggers. It’s the place to get down downtown, have a few cocktails and dance the night away to ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s hits. In the mood for something a little more low-key? Rush Lounge at the Golden Nugget is your spot. Lap up the luxe in VIP booths, sip signature cocktails and listen to a little live music. Nice, right? And don't forget to hit up the brand new Bar 46 to experience a rocking good time.  As if you need a little more entertaining than that, pop in for a show. We advise getting your laugh on and sitting in for the comedians of Chelsea Lately.

When it’s time for relaxation and recovery, Golden Nugget has it all--a decked out spa (for necessary r&r), shopping galore, top notch gaming and a pool to beat the others. Where else can you swim through a shark tank then kick back in a private cabana and top it off with drinks at the two story pool, The Hideout. Yes, you are in Las Vegas – enjoy yourself!

This is the real meaning of striking gold if you ask us.
