Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino

Rising 22 stories above Fremont Street and located two miles north of The Strip is the legendary gaming landmark Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas, Nev. Part of the Fremont Street Experience, this property is located under a canopy of animated LED lights sheltering a pedestrian corridor where live shows are presented nightly on Las Vegas' original gambling avenue. For trips in the surrounding area, busses and the Las Vegas Monorail are available for a fee.

The largest gold nugget on public display in the world, "The Hand of Faith," weighs roughly 61 pounds, 11 ounces, and is located in the property's lobby. The lobby opens onto a central pool complex. The moat style pool is surrounded by waterfalls, spa tubs and cabanas with palm shaped fans and brown rattan furnishings. A three story, clear waterslide travels through a shark tank that holds six different shark species and a stingray. Dining venues include Red Sushi, serving hand crafted signature sushi or sashimi, the Carson Street Cafe that serves light cuisine and entrees including Hawaiian specialties with views of The Shark Tank. A vintage Vegas feel permeates Vic & Anthony's, with old Vegas photographs, handcrafted mahogany woodwork and leather furnishings. The Spa at Golden Nugget offers treatments such as the Lavender Dreams Ultimate Experience and the Caviar Mani Kur. Impressionist, singer, and entertainer Gordi Brown performs five nights a week in the Showroom.
