    Hello, one of the hotels on our list of possibilities is the Golden Nugget. A few of the upgrade choices are a King Rush Tower, King Gold Club Room, and Jr. suite rush tower. Any info on these and what in your opinions would be the better room.

    Our other Hotel choices for now include NY NY, Mirage, TI, and maybe Mandalay Bay. We like to try different places to stay but also might spend the extra for Encore which has been the best we have stayed at to date.

    We normally do most of our gambling downtown and the nugget is the only place wife is interested in staying at. Thanks for any info

    Stayed in a Gold Club room during my trip in April of the year. Our rooms were on the 16th floor, which is key card access only. Checkin was at VIP desk(small room just beyond the chocolate shop) and there was only one party ahead of us. We arrived between 12 and 1 PM and the line at regular checkin was fairly long. We were able to check in and get our rooms even though it was early. The rooms were lovely and nicely updated, dark wood and earth tones. The bathroom had double sinks with plenty of counterspace, and a TV in the mirror. The shower/ tub had great water pressure although the space was a little awkward. There is a safe large enough for my laptop and free wifi for Gold Club rooms. Other perks for those rooms included line pass for cafe and buffet and I believe for the showroom, free access to the spa(small). Coffee, water and fruit were available near the elevator in the mornings, more water and bowls of candy, nuts and snack mix the remainder of the day. My room had a chaise and chair in addition to the desk chair, my DIL's room had a couch instead of the chaise. The views weren't much although DIL's over looked the pool. There was a Keureg coffee maker that I did not use, there was a charge for the pods and the coffee just down the hall was just fine. The only things that would have made the experiance better would have been a little more light in the room and a real coffee cup (I hate diposible).

    All in all I really enjoyed the hotel, casino, staff and the whole experiance. Whatever you choose I hope you have a GREAT time.

    We like the Rush Tower rooms, it’s the newest tower and a little less crowded for check in and elevator access.

    The old saying about the GN, is that it’s the Downtown Hotel that thinks it’s on the Strip. The nicest place Downtown by some measure in current times.

    I stayed in a Rush tower room a few months back. They are really nice rooms for the money. Everything was in great shape, comfy bed, impeccably clean. They give you a pretty good coupon book at check in with some free drinks and two for ones.

    There is a bar in front of the pool that has excellent cocktails and the bartender really takes pride in his job. I had some kind of vodka drink with jalapenos and it was awesome.

    The tower itself is quiet and pretty convenient to the casino but away from the noise on Fremont. Check in was a breeze and took five minutes.

    Definitely cant go wrong with these rooms.

    I stayed in the Rush Tower for 2 weeks this summer and the rooms are great. I was meant to go to the Palazzo after 10 days, but actually ended up extending for an extra 3 days I was enjoying it that much and a friend of mine was still downtown.

    I was in a Rush Jr Corner Suite first, but got them to move me into a normal room as I just didn't need all the space.

    I stayed in the Gold Club rooms last year for a couple days, the layout is very similar to the Rush Tower rooms. Apart from the bathrooms which did not have a separate water closet and were considerably smaller.

    I normally stay at the Palazzo for a week of my trip and then elsewhere on the strip for the other week or so. I'm a convert now though and will be staying at the Nugget for the bulk of my trip each year in the Rush Tower.

    I ate at Vic & Anthony's, Charthouse, Grotto and Lillies while I was there. All of them were very good especially Vic & Anthony's.

    I hope you have a great trip, I cannot recommend both the Golden Nugget and the Rush Tower enough.

    Another vote for the Rush Tower rooms. The Golden Nugget is our home when we're in Vegas and we're totally sold on the Rush Tower. Love it!

    Anyone like to comment on their regular king vs the jr suite room? Both would be in the Rush Tower. I like the idea of the extra space, but I'm going solo and couldn't get a casino rate on the jr suite. My play would be around $50 per hand for two to three hours per day. (5 day stay) How much of the cost might be picked up by my host, especially the jr suite? Would I be better off in the smaller room with the possibilty of having some FB comped as well?

    We're staying there Sept 3-7th and within our group we have a Spa Tower suite, Gold CLub room and regular gold tower room. I will let you know how they all stack up.

    We thought about the Jr Suites, but since this is our wedding, we thought we would splurge!

    I have stayed in both the Rush Tower and a Glold Club, both king bed for each. If you are paying the same, Gold Club is to your advantage. Gold Club rooms eleminate the charge for use of the spa facilities. The rooms are very similar.

    I had a Jr Suite this summer and moved into the normal room at my own request. You get a little sofa area in the regular rooms, but you don't get a dedicated television for the sofa.

    I found the normal room plenty spacious enough and I was there for 2 weeks almost. I paid the $25 to VIP checkin and I got line passes for my whole stay along with access to the Spa/Fitness centre too.
