    The D/Golden Gate Rooms

    I have been getting offers from the Golden Gate and the D for free nights and free play.

    Thinking of staying downtown for the first time, however, with a friend, so require two beds.

    My priorities:

    1. Quiet 2. Good Bed (soft) 3. Good Air Conditioning

    From my reading, it seems that Golden Gate's double rooms are facing Fremont, and are loud. Also, A/C seems a bit weak - rooms too hot. I do not qualify for a Suite, with the pull out sofa bed and weird glass bathroom (for 2 guys).

    At the D, is seems that there are few quiet rooms, however, 2 beds are available away from Fremont, and new rooms are better and quieter.


    With that in mind, what room should I book/request?

    I have stayed at both the Golden Gate & the D.

    Enjoyed both.

    However, I was alone. The GG room was quite small, with a diminutive bathroom.

    The D had a much larger room and a nice bathroom.

    AC worked well in both places.

    D was quieter than GG.

    You didn't ask about food, but the only food outlet at the GG is DuPar's. I kind of like it, but I would not take my wife there.

    The D has a GREAT 24/7 diner ( D Grille ); very clean & pleasant. Andiamo's is one of the finest restaurants that I have ever dined in. For a quick snack, American Coney is very good.

    D has more to pick from so chances are better of getting one.

    see if the 17th floor is done yet, thats going to be the secret high roller floor.

    Last trip a bathroom cleaner was telling me about it and even though the rooms were all renovated the 17th floor still had the fitz stuff and was untouched. he said they were converting it into the owners suite and cool stuff like that.

    I went up there and it was still fitz like. a couple days later I went back and could ghear some workmen in there so didnt get to snoop around. this was in august.
