Our daughter reserved rooms at the Golden Nugget using a great deal she discovered on Groupon. I read the TA reviews of the hotel and had some concerns, particularly since our rooms where in the less desirable Carson Tower. My concerns were completely unnecessary. From the minute we arrived until we left we had the quintessential Las Vegas experience.
When we drove up to the hotel valet parking immediately took charge of our vehicle, while the bell hops emptied the car and put everything on luggage carts. Registration was completed in an instant, and we arrived at our room only a few minutes before our luggage was delivered.
Our room was absolutely lovely. There was nothing about this property that we felt required any changes or up-dating. We appreciated the huge size of the room. The beds were very comfortable, and the bathroom was elegant with thick towels and quality amenities.
The public areas of the hotel were, in typical Las Vegas fashion, over the top, and we loved every blown glass chandelier, and rich carpet. It was exactly what we would have expected in a Las Vegas property.
While the weather was not conducive to using the swimming pool, we could see that it would be a terrific attraction for our young grandson. I was worried about residual cigarette smoke, but our room was completely smoke free, and our journey through the public areas and the casinos was not unpleasant. We would prefer a smoke-free property, but the Golden Nugget was not bad.
We ate two meals at the hotel. On our first night we enjoyed an excellent meal in the Asian restaurant, where the food was excellent and the service superior. It was well worth the price. We also went to the breakfast buffet. I was less impressed with the buffet, and particularly unhappy that our seven year old grandson was charged as an adult. He ate three bites of egg, and we paid nearly $20 for his meal. Still the food was eatable, and you cannot beat a buffet for swift delivery of food.
I was most impressed with the service of this hotel. The valet service was terrific. It is the epitome of luxury to me to have someone else manage my luggage and park my car. A mere telephone call insured that our car was available whenever we needed it. Our luggage was managed efficiently. The rest of the staff was equally accomplished and efficient. Our maid service was excellent. The staff at the registration desk were personable and efficient.
I enjoyed being off the strip and near the Fremont Street Experience. It felt more like old and authentic Las Vegas, and it involved much less walking between attractions than we would have experienced on the strip itself.
I would not hesitate to stay in this outstanding hotel, and I am comfortable recommending it to my family and friends.
