Don't be fooled by the Expedia (or other) ads for a $17 room at this hotel. $17 = $37 once the Resort Fee is added. For that amount (or less) you can stay at other Fremont Street hotels, all of which are much nicer. If you book direct with the hotel itself, you'll STILL have to pay the $20 per night Resort Fee (probably $24 + $20 = $44)
The rooms here are very small (230 sq. ft.), and the walls look like they haven't changed since the early 1900's when the hotel was built. The furnishings, however, are all brand new (HD TV, bed tables, chair, lamps, etc.), and the bed is one of the most comfortable I've ever slept on.
The bathrooms are clean but ancient (1940's style - and not in a good way). Finally, the hotel has virtually no sound-proofing. If you get an interior room and use earplugs, you'll have a fighting chance of getting to sleep.
Before the Resort Fee was instituted, this hotel provided adequate value for money. Now it's just a "bait and switch" operation that sucks an extra $20 out of your wallet for each night you stay there.
P.S. The casino here is AWESOME, probably the most fun in all of Las Vegas (at least if you're a guy).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Accurately billed as Las Vegas' "Most Historic Hotel," the Golden Gate has stood the test of time and then some. Since opening as the Hotel Nevada in 1906, this modest and cozy corner establishment has stood placidly at One Fremont Street while the town -- and the world -- changed around it. Most notably, the Fremont Street Experience was built right outside its door. Very little has changed to compromise the hotel's old school charm in the intervening years, although the Golden Gate has made improvements and modernized. The hotel remains proudly dwarfed by its neighbors, at just 106 rooms. The rooms themselves, on the other hand, have been updated and include modern amenities like flat screen televisions and iHome clock radios. The casino is just as active as opening day -- and just as intimate -- although now its boasts Dealer Dancers from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. nightly. Its shrimp cocktail -- widely acknowledged as the first ever served in Las Vegas -- is as popular as the day it was introduced. Even as Las Vegas builds toward the heavens, the Golden Gate keeps close to the ground, rooted in its rich and wildly successful history. ... more less
