i've been to vegas about 10 times for both business and pleasure. most of the times I stay on the strip since it's more centrally located and most of the conferences I attend are at the Sands or the LV Convention Center. though this isn't my first time to the Golden Nugget, it was my first time staying there. here's my breakdown of my stay:
LOCATION: the location of the Nugget is good and bad. if you want to hang out in downtown Vegas, it's in the perfect location. however, if you're planning on hanging out on the strip, the Golden Nugget (or any hotel downtown) is a bad option.
ROOM: the room is clean, nice and big. I would honestly say it's on par with the bottom of the top range of hotels on the strip or the top of the middle range of the hotels on the strip. no free wifi though which sucks.
AMENITIES: the hotel has some really awesome attractions. the shark tank is definitely one of the cooler, more family oriented pools in all of Vegas. there definitely are younger, hotter types there but it's mostly families who want to see & swim with the animals. Vic & Anthony's Steakhouse is one of my favorites in all of Vegas as well, but it's not cheap. expect to pay normal high end steakhouse prices, around $80 per person.
overall this hotel is extremely nice and but honestly nothing special. however, factor in that there is free parking and the rooms was only $50, this was one the best deals i've ever had in vegas. 4.5 stars.
