Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino

129 E. Fremont St., Las Vegas, Nevada, 89101, USA

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.

PROS

  • legendary Vegas property
  • one-of-a-kind pool
  • great poker room

CONS

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