Las Vegas Hotels

Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino

  • 129 E. Fremont St. Map It
  • Downtown


  • Legendary Vegas property
  • One-of-a-kind pool
  • Great poker room


  • Small sports book
  • Although the best Downtown property it still doesn't quite measure up to the new megastars on the Strip

Fodor's Review

The Golden Nugget has pretty much reigned as Downtown's top property since the mid-1970s, evolving with the times but maintaining classic appeal. The resort stands apart from its "Old Vegas" neighbors with unique attractions, namely The Tank, a pool with a shark tank and a three-story waterslide (which, incidentally, goes through the shark tank). The nicest and newest accommodations on the property reside in the modern and sophisticated Rush Tower; beds are plush, and built-in desks easily convert to multimedia stations. Casino operators have been known to cycle through new table games, but the popular poker room, which has starred on a number of poker television shows, is likely to last.
