Earlier this month I got a press walk through of the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas. Some people wouldn’t be caught dead staying downtown, but I’ve always had a soft spot for the other end of Vegas. I even got married at the Golden Nugget on 7-7-7. Only now, I don’t just have a soft spot for downtown Vegas, I’m downright excited about it! And I couldn’t wait to stay at the Golden Gate. The renovated rooms are sweet. And Suite. We just nabbed a suite like the one in the picture above for only $69/night. Cool, huh?
DEAL: A recently redone suite for $69/night is plenty exciting, but what I loved about this room was the style. It’s gives props to its Old Vegas past yet is decked out with modern furniture and amenities from Wi-Fi to the Keurig coffee machines and rainfall shower heads. The yummy Dupar’s is right downstairs and the brand new Container Park is right down the street.
TESTED: I found the $69/night deal available most nights midweek in February and beyond. If you can only travel on a weekend, the rate was also available Feb. 7 and 8, 2014. I grabbed it for Feb. 25-27. Tax was 13% plus a $20/night resort fee. So, all in all the room cost $195.94 for two nights.
TIPS: Don’t miss a meal at Dupar’s downstairs. They are particularly known for their pancakes, but I’d eat there for any meal. It’s a cozy diner that delivers.
Let us know what you love about staying at Golden Gate Hotel & Casino. And hey, have FUN in Vegas, Baby!
