This is a one night stay (last night of our trip) for my adult son and I after 4 nights on the strip. We first booked the DTG because we have stayed there four times; the rooms were spotless and we loved it. Then we saw the GN was advertising "no resort fees" which brought the Carson rooms to the exact same price as DTG so we thought we'd try it for a change of scenery, as well as GN offering free printing of boarding passes and buy 1/get 1 buffet. My son would literally spend an hour tops at the pool and he does like aquariums, but on the other hand I might be just standing around and unable to find a chair. For anyone who has stayed at both, are the Carson rooms just as nice as the Grand? Does the GN have a long, slow check in line? I assume they would charge for early check in because they gouge for everything else. Gambling is not an issue - we don't get comped a thing. Should we stick with the Grand that we know and love or switch it up to stay at the Nugget?
