“Rush Tower is the choice here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Stayed two nights in a Rush Tower room. Bed was great, room was spacious and bathroom was of good size. The Rush Tower is fairly new and feels more refined. The only gripe i have is that the room had a shower/tub combo (i prefer stand alone shower) and the tub was very slippery making showering a nearly dangerous event. Otherwise, found the room quite comfortable.
Pool area was crowded and was a slight challenge in getting even a single lounge chair - one in the far corner of the pool area. Regardless, it was the summer so crowds were expected. Gym/Spa facilities - workout area sparse, but not much demand so getting a machine/treadmill was not a problem. Nice wet areas to use as well.
Staff at check-in and check-out were very friendly and efficient. Overall, a very nice stay.

I stayed in Las Vegas for four nights while visiting family in August. Overall this is a very nice casino hotel. I didn't have to walk through smoke filled gambling halls to get to my room, the elevators and garage were spotless and the rooms are spacious, clean, well decorated, comfortable and quiet. (At least my room on the 10th floor of the Carson Tower was.) They also have some lovely restaurants, an attractive pool area and you can walk outside the hotel and be right in the middle of the "Fremont Experience."

This was however the first time I've encountered a hotel in a long time without a refrigerator and if you want to have coffee in the room you've got to pay $10 for coffee filters that are kept in a small, white box with a label you break open to access. But I wasn't terribly tempted because they also didn't provide any cups! (Which I assume was just an accident.) In the closet there was a hanger that said, "Please enjoy using this complimentary bathrobe" ... but the hanger was empty. (Another accident.) And if I wanted internet, there was a $12.00 charge for that. (Not an accident.)

But... back on the positive side, the resort fee for this hotel is only $5.00 a night instead of the larger add-on fees of $15/a night in other hotels on the strip. Also, this hotel has a huge, gorgeous shark tank next to the pool and you can slide down a water slide tube right through the middle of the shark tank. You can't do that most any place!

But, again, I couldn't take advantage of this because the pool rules are very strict. You can't swim in the pool until 10AM and it closes at 8PM. Because I was visiting family during the day, I wasn't able to be there during their pool hours, so I missed that avenue of pleasure. I think the reason for these hours though is to respect guest's quiet time because the rooms are close to the pool.

I would come back and stay again possibly because the rooms were so nice, but I'd bring my own coffee, refrigerator, G4 connection, bathrobe and pool.

Did not stay at your hotel, but we wished we did. We normally stay on the strip and stay on the strip, and we usually only go downtown to see the light show. On this trip we went downtown on two different occasions because we were winning on the slots machine, card tables staff friendly and funny. We love the remodeling, great show, great food, live music. Overall the old vegas experience is a lot better then what's going on the strip - young girls dress like hookers, no one gambling. So on our next visit we will staying at the Golden Nugget

This hotel is my favorite in the city. We stayed for two nights for our anniversary and had the most pleasant experience. The room (Rush Tower) had a wonderful view of the city and the room itself was big and beautiful. The rain shower was a great plus. There is no possible way to eat badly in this hotel either, we had dinner at The Grotto and lunch and dinner the next day at the Sports Grille, both were delicious. The shark tank is truly special and made for hours and hours of fun. Walking out to Fremont Street was refreshing, as I prefer it to The Strip which as a resident of the city has quickly become a been-there-done-that tour. Their excellent Customer Service really just completed the package.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is facing away from the Fremont Experience, it's much more quiet.

First of all this USED to be a great hotel and casino, pool is fun, lighting is wonderful. This last 3 day trip was horrible. First of all we checked into two rooms, crap still all over the toilet and food all over the wall and floor by the bed. casino staff was very rude and unfriendly to the customers, they just want your MONEY the they want you to leave! will NEVER stay at the Golden Nugget and I will fro sure let everyone know about my crappy experience. hundreds of other great hotel stays in Vegas. don't settle because you get what you pay for!!!

Room Tip: choose another hotel!!!

We were here for two nights. The hotel is large with the different towers, so we did get a lot of exercise walking about! When a hotel has an exercise facility in it, often it has been included in the stay. Luckily, we had a voucher to use it for the only day that worked for us. It was a very nice facility. I found that the hotel had a few restaurants to choose from , but they were more costly than when we were just in Reno. We went to their buffet dinner and it was $42 for 2 for a evening meal. Luckily I remembered a friend had told us about the Main St Station and how they had a tasty buffet with lots of choice for a lot less money. It was a 5 minute walk from where we were, so it was perfect!! The pool area at the hotel was very nice too, but the lounge chairs were clothe and looked very stained and dirty. I was thankful for the towels to lay on. Close to checking out Freemont Street experience at night. Different to check out, and a fun alternative to a smokey casino!!

Room Tip: We did ask for a quiet room, and we did get one!

LOVE THIS PLACE! Stayed in a 2 bedroom suite in the Gold Tower! AMAZING! felt like I was in a massive 2 bedroom apartment. One room on one end and another room on the other divided by a huge living room. Reeks of privacy if you want others to join you in your ROCKSTAR surroundings! 3 bathrooms, TV's in every room, staff at your beck and call (and most pleasant and proper, I may add)... MAX room service, VIP checkin, clean, trendy decor.... it's GOT IT! So, you drop a couple 100 BUT well worth it!!! Down comforters, goose down pillows,... need I continue??? It's high end on the Freemont, easy access to other casinos. Your whole surroundings is like VEGAS how it used to be! Lots of outdoor action with Freemont attractions. Street closed off to cars so you "live the dream" with vendors, sideshows, outdoor concerts, one man shows. You name it, they have it. Just go! Consider the Golden Nugget. You won't give Caesars or the Bellagio a second thought!

Room Tip: (1) SPEND the extra money and stay in the GOLD TOWER and (2) you may want to gamble elsewhere. Swear...
