I had never been to Fremont Street before so decided to stay at this hotel for one night with my mom at the end of a visit with family. I've stayed at Harrah's on the strip a few times, and once the extra fees (resort fee at Harrah's and "Fremont street experience" fee at Golden Nugget) are factored in, the cheapest rooms are very similarly priced at these two hotels. Since my mom has the Landry's select card and it was available, we got the free one category upgrade at Golden Nugget to a Gold Tower room. The room was definitely nicer than what I've stayed in at Harrah's. It looks just like pictured on the website. Plenty of space, nice TV.
The pool was very cool. At least on the weekday we were there, there were kids, but the place was not over-run with them. I enjoyed the slide and watching the sharks. You can easily find shade due to the fact it is in between buildings and we didn't have problems getting a lounger. Throughout the casino floor if you look up there are very cool glass art.
So the negatives- they claim to not charge a resort fee but they do charge a 5$ Fremont street experience fee. Kind of annoying. As a result, they charge for in room coffee and access to the fitness center. We knew this from the webpage. The lounger cushions are starting to show their age, but a minor point since pool towels were plentiful.
Bottom line- I would definitely return!
