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 property reside in the modern and sophisticated Rush Tower; beds are plush and built-in
desks easily convert to multimedia stations. Casino policies are inconsistent, but the popular poker room, which has starred on a number of poker television shows, is likely to last.
