Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Golden Gate. 3 nights were comped, 1 was on me. I had been staying at lower end places in the CET previously, i.e. Flamingo, Harrahs, Ballys, but really was looking for a reason to switch over to the Golden Gate or the D and start staying downtown.Well, I got to the Hotel on a Sunday afternoon, checked in and tried the $20 trick to possibly get a suite. That didn't work so I pulled out the big guns and tried the upgrade for a 1 lb. bag of fresh, squeaky, cheese curds. Not even that worked and I was given a room right above the stage on Freemont Street. Needless to say, no sleep for me before midnight.The room itself was fine, only there was no cold water. I'm mostly a craps and blackjack player with about a $1000 bankroll per day. Should I keep trying to somehow see what they will offer in the future, or try somewhere else. I really want to stay there especially with the new hotel going up. that is all !
