We stayed in this hotel for the very first time in many years (before they did all the upgrades-and there was a great deal done to improve this resort) before we planned to stay here .a very good friend recommended this place as her favorite in Vegas....not only because the prices were excellent( $52.00 per night for 2 people and no resort fees) We stayed for 5 nights and wish we had stayed longer as there is sooooo much to see and do in Las Vegas.I think there is app 700 attrractions in and around the area so you can see why we ran out of time.
back to the hotel.....we stayed in the week before Christmas week and we booked online with
Priceline and the rate was too good not to try it out ...especially with such a good report from a close friend. In addition to quick and easy check-in and check-out which you can do by remote
console in the lobby area if you wish....you also get"fun packs" from the front desk which you can use for a whole bunch of things at the hotel : ie: 2 for 1 meals at the breakfast , lunch and dinner buffet which I would rate as a good solid 31/2-4 out of 5. Service staff where very good
in all areas of the resort.
The rooms were large and very clean with modern facilities ..we stayed on the 5th floor which was non-smoking...I smoke ..the wife does not and I always went outside to smoke eventhough there are many indoor areas where you do not have to go outside.
The fun packs are also good for 2 for 1 shows and dinner shows at the resort and they are quite resonable depending on what you would want to pay for the shows on the "strip" which can easily run $ 85-100 or more per person.
I really liked this area of Freemont Street....with the Experience show and all the casinos so close by and the street performers and the zip-line and music entertainment( I understand they are increasing the size of the " Experience" and the zip-line as we speak..
So this hotel really has a great location and there is some really good hop- on , hop -off express busses just around the corner with the ticket dispensing machines right by the bus stop.
I know it was near Christmas when we were there but even so ..I would say all the decorqtions and glitz and glamour of the hotel will please most people by far !
I can say this as we did tour all of the other resorts in the New Strip or as they call it " the strip"
sure they are more glamorous but they are also MUCH more expensive and Much more larger in size....I would not like to have to walk all through Ceasar's Palace to get to my room or the resaurants as in
vegas most of the casinos are set up so that you have to walk through them to get just about anywhere....speaking of the casinos ...they say the slot machines on Freemont st. are "looser" in that they claim they pay out 16 % more than on the "strip"....I think , from my own experience that there may be some truth to this .Don't get me wrong ...you must take the time to SEE the
other resorts and try your luck.
also re the drinks are free in all of the casinos while you are playing the games ...sometimes the waitresses can be a little slow to bring your drink ...but I think they may be told to do this by management....we did notice this to be the case at all the resorts on and off of freemont st.
the pool area of this resort is Great !...It is heated in the water and around the pool area as I can believe it ...it is wonderfull to have such a center piece to look at....( we snorkel at lot..that is why we loved this feature.
Lots more to say about Vegas...but will save that for another review......We will be back and will not hesitate to book the Nugget again! Great time and very good value ...all around.
ps...coming up reviews of San Fran, Alcatraz,L.A. ,ROSE BOWL Parade China Town and so much more ...when I get the time ...ciao for now
