I promised to take you all to one of the best (maybe THE best) Las Vegas hotels off The Strip, The Golden Nugget.
Here we stayed for 15 days in September 2009.
This hotel is very luxurious, and it’s swimming pool is voted “one of the world’s best swimming pools top 10″…. with sharks in it !! (NO JOKE !!). And they have great music at the pool… American Rock music from the 70′s and 80′s! Not like so many other hotels “Boonky-Boonky music for 15 year old’s who think they are gangsters from the ghetto, but meanwhile live in a wealthy white suburb”.
Besides that, it is also one of the oldest hotels, and it has a very nice poker room…. at least for me, because I won my complete holiday spendings back at those tables…
It also has some great restaurants.
The only disadvantage is, that if you want to go to The Strip, you allways have to take the bus (+/-25 minutes, $3, or a taxi, 10 minutes, $15), and that’s why I prefer a hotel on The Strip. But during my holiday I will certainly more than once visit The Golden Nugget for a good poker game and a great meal in one of the great restaurants.
