    I'm thinking about staying here in April for our trip during the week. (April 7th - 12th)

    Whats the difference between the Carson, Gold, and Rush towers? Is it just newness? I need a double bedded room, so it appears maybe Carson is the only option. (I don't think Rush has any rooms with two beds per their website)

    Any guidance on your preferences, closeness to the casino/poker room, amenities, overall thoughts is appreciated. The price difference is pretty nominal between the rooms, and maybe an upgrade can be had?

    Thanks for your help!

    Rush is more modern bigger bathroom and king beds only. I prefer rush but....

    Carson has doubles and are nice enough. I have stayed in both most recently carson and it was perfectly fine. We didn't have a choice on the bed situation either.

    Carson is a longer walk to the casino then rush but not by much. One of golden nuggets two starbucks are closer to carson.

    Other than that I think its a wash between the rush and carson. I am sorry i don't have any info about gold to offer you.

    I stayed in the Gold tower this past trip in a room with 2 beds. I stayed on the N. Casino Center Blvd side on the 7th floor and didnt really hear any FSE noise. I also passed out around 11 pm that night in a bit of a drunken haze so there is a possibility there was noise and i was just oblivious to it.... lol

    As for the room. The room itself was clean but a little on the smaller side compared to placed I've stayed in on the strip. It had a safe in the closet, a decent size (probaby 40") flat screen tv. The beds were actually pretty comfortable but I think they were full size, not queen size beds. They give you a kuereg coffee machine in the room but they charge you an astronomical amount for the k-cups (so bring your own if you drink it).
    The bathroom....... lets just say it was adequate but i wasnt impressed. Small vanity on one side, toilet in front of you and tub on the other side. Just about enough room to go in the bathroom and close the door. Not to say you are going to be throwing parties in the bathroom but its a little tight.

    As for making it to the casino. Get off the elevator and you stumble out to the casino floor in front of the high rollers room. Poker room is probably a 20 second walk from the elevators and sports book is less than a minute.

    I would definately stay at the GN again... hope my post helps.

    We've been staying at the GN for over 20 years. Have stayed in all the towers. All are fine. The last few years we've booked a Gold Club
    room in the North Tower. They are on the 16th and 17th floors of the now Gold Tower. The floors are access controlled and offer a lot of
    extras such as papers, fruit, snacks, candy etc. You also have VIP check in and a VIP access pass. No lines for anything. VIP check in is always a breeze. After a five hour flight from Philly the last I want to do is stand in line. The difference in price over a standard Carson Tower room is about $ 300.00 for a week stay. I'm on vacation not a camping trip so I appreciate the extra little touches. If you stay in the Carson Tower try to request room 2298. Might be the best room in the property. It's a corner with no neighbors. Top floor and very quiet.
    I guess you've ascertained that we like the GN. Always treated well there. Good food and very well run. We live about three miles from a Penna. Casino in the suburbs of Philly. We don't go there. We're Vegas people. Enjoy your stay.

    We have stayed in older Carson Tower rooms at the Nugget for years when not on the strip. Classy and clean except for a tv problem this summer but they got a guy right up to fix it and ultimately moved us to another room when it need a part. They are nicer than rooms at alot of hotels nationwide. I woudl not pay more for other towers but we are only in the room to sleep and shower in Vegas anyway!
