They get you walking into the casino, and walking to your elevator. They ask you where your from, and then try to get you to look at their timeshare information. That got old real quick. We stayed January 8th-January 10th, both my husbands and my first visit to Vegas. Stayed in downtown because of the price, I think next time, I'll pay a little more and stay on the Strip. The buffet was not good, there wasn't a selection, and of course the price was steep for what it was. The evening lazer light show right outside the hotel was neat to see. I heard the Golden Nugget's slots were tight, but we found them to be the best, in respect to the other nearby casino's, its also the nicest hotel in downtown, of what we saw. We took a taxi in for about $35 (including tip), thought it was high, considering how close the airport is, but since it was my first visit, I didn't know any better. Found out my instinct was right, when we took a taxi back to the airport for around $20. I would never rent a car though, the traffic on the Strip was nuts, parking expensive. We had dinner at Kokomo's at the Mirage, its not cheap, dinner for two cost $140, the salad was nothing special, but the dinner was great, but my husband and I were yelling at each other from across the table, since we couldn't hear each other with the waterfalls all around, so not intimate. As I'm sure all the other Vegas hotels are, I thought the Golden Nugget was a bit cheesy, the rooms were OK, an updated Ramada Inn, the view was of the parking lot, but the room was cheap, you get what you pay for. Check-in took a little bit, but we were there right at check-in-time. If you want to go sightseeing, stay at the Strip, for the money you pay in taxi fares (think there is a shuttle you can take, but never saw that) it evens out.
