I arrived to find the check in desk at Rush tower closed.
I made my way to the main check in desk and upon arrival at the room I discovered the TV didn't work. I called down and they sent up maintenance.
The maintenance guy couldn't get the TV to work and said he already had 2 other rooms with broken TV's that morning and he thought it was due to the power outages the hotel was suffering.
I hike back to the main check in and am assigned a second room. Upon arrival at the second room I discover that TV doesn't work either.
I go back down to check in for the third time. They are apologetic and assign me an upgraded room with two TV's. I arrive at that room and one of those two TV's are functional. I go into the bathroom to draw a bath in the large soaking tub only to find the water is tepid.
At this point I am done complaining because it has been 4 hours since I arrived. I head out to enjoy the casinos downtown.
That evening as I am getting ready for bed I hear loud bass coming from the Fremont Street Experience. I have a room facing south on the 18th floor and it is loud enough I couldn't sleep until it shut down after midnight. This was the same every night and I stayed midweek not on the weekend.
Luckily the water had warmed up a bit by the next morning and while it never got hot it was barely warm enough for a shower with the handle turned up as hot as it went.
I will not be returning to the Golden Nugget. Plenty of other places with hot water, functional TV's and a quiet room at less than half the price.
