    Just ended my first stay downtown, the nugget. I was underwhelmed with the room-gold tower. The bathroom was right out of motel 6. Just enough room to close the door once you where inside. No noise from FSE. The rest of the room was adequate, bed slept good, big tv that I never turned on.

    Only ate at red sushi in the casino, it's pricey but staying on the happy hr menu the items were 1/2 price which made it reasonable.

    I was very surprised at how warm the pool was. Hated to get out of the water cause it was cold outside. We prob swam an hr. It wasn't hot tub warm but was very doable.

    The gambling area was pretty nice. Saw some 5 $ craps (lost 80$ pretty quick), never saw anything less than 10 for BJ so I played that elsewhere

    Just curious, are the Rush Tower rooms generally better/worse than the Gold Tower rooms? I stayed in a Carson Tower room once and I've booked a Rush Tower room this summer. Thanks.:peace::beer:

    We stayed at the Rush tower last summer and it was fantastic! We got lucky with the Landry card and got the junior suite which was even more better!

    The separate checkin desk was even more of a bonus !

    From memory, the Carson and Gold Tower rooms only really differ in location.

    The Gold Tower is directly on the casino floor, while the Carson is 5 minutes walk from the gaming areas. The Rush Tower rooms are great, and just around the corner from Red Sushi.

    I stayed there last year and they are great. The only downside for me is that they don't have a walk in shower.

    We've stayed in the Gold and Carson towers and thought they were very nice. They had a decent sized bathroom with a large counter and a vanity with lighted magnifying mirror outside if you wanted to do your makeup there. They provide terry robes and have the flat screen TV. I guess everyone has different expectations but IMO, the rooms at GN, even the older ones, are quite nice.
    We don't spend a lot of time in the room so this is perfectly fine for us.

    I stayed in a Rush Tower room recently. It was nice, reminded me of Red Rock. The bathroom was very nice.

    "Jeopardy" had a question this past week:
    "The hand of Faith is located here."

    What is the Golden Nugget casino Alex?

    Stayed in the Carson Tower, a couple of days during Halloween. It was nice, room nothing special as well as the bathroom. Pool area nice. If the price is right, I'd stay there again. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I have stayed in all 3 towers. You made the right choice. The rush tower are far and away the best standard rooms at the hotel.

    Another vote for Rush Tower. As good a standard room as any I have had on the Strip.

    Great room, great price!

    I'll never stay anywhere downtown I the than the nugget. I always book a Carson tower priced room and have never been denied an upgrade to rush when I ask. I have always offered a tip for this and it's been turned down.

    I booked a Carson room at $39 and upgraded to Rush, but was charged and additional $40 per night. When I asked if she could accept a tip for a better deal, she politely turned me down. I was okay with it.
