Stayed here for a 4 night Vegas trip 21st August. The hotel is massive with 3 tower accommodation zones. We stayed at the regular Carlton Tower which is were I guess they put everybody who's has got a room at good value nightly rate. Our room was just ok as it was quite dated appointed in dreary colours. I'd spotted that it had tea/coffee machine and thought it would be free and topped up by maid service every day. The 1st few insert coffee pods were free but you had to pay for top ups afterwards at $9.00 for 3. The air conditioning worked fine and was quite controllable. We go away on sunshine holidays frequently so I wasn't too impressed by their giant shark aquarium adjacent to swimming pool and lounge / bar area. I'm sure the sharks are well cared for but it is rather sad to see these fearsome marine predators captive in this manner. The outdoor pool area is a bit of a fake really as it is outside but only open to a bit of sky as the pool is dwarfed by the the hotel towers so yes you are open to the elements but it feels more like an indoor swimming pool. The best bit about the Golden Nugget is the breakfast. Massive restaurant, massive selection of all you can eat buffet style. Start here in the morning and I guarantee you won't need to eat until evening. As the Golden Nugget is situated in the Downtown area you'll need a taxi to get you to the main 'upmarket' Las Vegas strip. Downtown is what it is...absolutely tacky but not even glam-tack...just tacky. Don't expect to be able to find a regular bar with outdoor seating to sit and relax. All the bars are inside the casinos where you won't even know what time it is as they don't show clocks at all just in case someone gambling realises they've been doing so for way too long. Bit depressing to wake up and see people still gambling at 09:00 (were they there all night?!!). I should mention that I don't gamble.What is outside is loud, LOUD rock music played everywhere after 18:00. There is no corner to turn to take you away from it all nor that much desired quiet bar where you can sit outside and chill.
