    Been reading about the downtown hotels and since they are small and mostly right in the area of the nightly music that it can be noisy and difficult to sleep.
    Where would one stay downtown with the most quiet rooms?

    Carson tower at Golden Nugget has been pretty quiet for us. I'm also in the habit of ear plugs from years of working nights.

    I have heard people complain about the rooms at Downtown Grand but to be honest, I never heard a sound other than normal traffic. My room was facing the mountains and not the bars across the street so that maybe why. Also, I stayed in the Rush tower at Golden Nugget and never heard a sound.

    Never had a problem in any of the GN rooms. DG provides ear plugs, needed them with a distant bass boom, not sure where it originated since I faced away from 6th St. and Fremont on a very high floor.

    The suites at the Golden Gate are silent.

    The Cal's East Tower rooms are pretty quiet. They're older but were renovated so they're decent and clean.

    Actually the west Tower rooms are quiet too but once in a great while the trains will pass by and toot their fricken horns at 5am. But even then it's not bad for me but I can see it being bothersome to others.

    Thanks for the California tip, Electroguy. I'm booked there in December and expected to request the new renovated West Tower rooms, but "quiet" is my top agenda. I'll ask for the East. This issue has driven me out of downtown. Even this last booking I made at the very end of the trip so that if things got noisy, and tired me out, at least I'd be at the end of my tripaver.
    With a $30 and change resort fee, the Golden Nugget stays out of my price range. 20 days in Vegas and my average price per night is not as high as their resort fee.

    I have stayed at the El Cortez Cabana suites a few times and find them quiet. The worst was the Golden Gate in July. I couldn't get any sleep as the room I had faced the Freemont St Experience and was loud from noon to 4 am. The windows would vibrate so bad with the metal bars and a constant loud humming noise because of that. I think it didn't help either that one of the speakers was bad which made the vibration and constant humming noise ever worse. I least it was free but even so you still need some sleep.

    Quiet is the most important thing to me in a hotel room. I've had various rooms at GN and DTG.

    I won't try DTG again due to the noise coming from the Hogs and Heifer bar. One side of each tower overlooks this bar and the music can be heard inside the rooms even on the very top floor of the building. The other side of one of the towers at DTG is quiet, but overlooks an ugly parking garage. That only leaves one side of one tower at DTG which would suit me. I'm not willing to risk it.

    GN Rush Tower rooms are the only ones I have tried. Those that face north (toward Fremont) are very noisy until the wee hours. Those that face south are quiet and have a pretty decent view. But I'm afraid to book the GN again for fear of being told that only north-facing rooms are available.

    Exvegaslocal,

    The one side of the DTG you say might suit you (the east side of the main tower) gets quite a bit of noise from the DJ or band or whatever at the Gold Spike Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights until after 2 am. That's where our room was a couple of weeks ago. The DTG is our favorite place downtown these days, but if you want a quiet room you have to go with the west side of the west tower, which has the ugly parking garage view. Those aren't always available because returning guests have learned it's the quietest location.

    We stayed in the GN rush tower last week and noticed the noise for the first time. I guess we were on the wrong side of the tower. We needed the ear plugs first night but was so tired the 2nd night it was ok, but the bass thumping was very noticeable.

    Hey Dewey, long time no hear from you.

    As for the Cal, I would recommend the east tower rooms only if your room faces east. The east tower rooms facing west face the west tower and if you are on a lower floor you can hear the big fans down below. You also hear the delivery trucks and the beep beep early in the morning.

    Also, ask for a high floor and a room closer to the elevators. By the elevators there are 2 or 3 rooms that may be better than the regular east tower rooms (also because they are bigger than the regular rooms). Higher numbered rooms are rooms that are closer to the FSE and you may be able to hear the noise from the FSE so better to request a room closer to the elevators. Normally I would say that the regular east tower rooms are smallish and outdated (meaning old).

    Guess I'm a heavier sleeper so I don't mind the noise from the trains and Main St. noise. I also ask for the west tower, high floor and lower numbered room facing west since the noise won't be as bad. I like the bigger enclosed bathrooms in the West tower, the east tower bathrooms are like MSS bathroom, tub and toilet in one room and vanity outside.

    Glad to read there are some quiet rooms.
    May actually spend a night downtown.

    Actually South tower of Plaza facing south.

    If you are in a north facing room in the South tower you can hear the FSE.

    South facing GN Rush Tower rooms are absolutely quiet. I've stayed in those rooms since they opened and never heard a peep.

    :peace: :beer:

    Have you never? :eek:

    Yes, you need to spend a night downtown. I've stayed three different places downtown. DTG was plenty tolerable (for me) and I don't recall ANY noise from the Golden Nugget Rush Tower or the Golden Gate Suites.

    DTG was very loud with the bar across the street. The D was loud even on the other side of the building, though I liked both places overall, I pack a fan to drown out the noise, but could still hear the bands.
    So far, Golden Nugget gold tower and Carson tower have been quiet.
