Golden Nugget Rush Tower Review  Sink

From what it looks like, they were brand new towels and washcloths, as the ones I used were quote soft and smooth. The toilet is a nice mid-riser that flushed with gusto and no shatphone to be found (Although there is a potential one to be mentioned later.).

Golden Nugget Rush Tower Review  Shower

The shower/tub combo is rather nice, with a Raintree shower head and a deep tub. The tub was large enough that I could have actually lounged in it comfortably. A few drawbacks though. The doors are glass and if housekeeping doesn't keep up with the cleaning on them, they'll look rough rather quickly. Another drawback is that getting in and out of the shower may be a chore if you under say 5' 6".

Opposite the bathroom is the closet, which was your typical hotel closet except the hangers were new. One of the two suitcase racks was stored in the closet, as was the hairdryer, the iron, the ironing board, as well as two sets of Golden Nugget robes and slippers.

Looks serviceable. I am a little suprised they didn't try to be a little more upscale (i.e. like M Resort or the new HRH towers). I guess they figure there is only so much they can do being downtown. In my opinion there are enough strip visitors who would be willing to stay a night downtown if there were some high-end rooms on Fremont.

In some respects, I think the Rush Tower may be too upscale for Downtown. Look at some of the room rate offers that have been posted here recently. They may be having trouble getting folks to book those rooms.

I'm tentatively planning to make a return visit to the Rush Tower this Fall for a bit of a follow-up and perhaps a review of one of their Junior Corner Suites.

I stayed in the Rush Tower in January and I'm headed back at the end of March. I'm feeling kinda stupid because I didn't find those power outlets in the desk. I ended up charging my BlackBerry from the outlet by the air conditioner.

Sorry for the double-post. I just wanted to add that the HDTV issue was resolved by the time of my trip to the Rush Tower in mid-January.

I made ample use of the power outlet while I was there, as I brought my netbook with me.

It's good to see that the HDTV issue is now fixed.

Side note. As previously mentioned in Chuckmonster's GN review a few years back, WiFi is not free there, but there is some WiFi you can piggyback on. I can confirm that is still the case, but I had brought my WiMax modem for my netbook so I didn't need to pay or piggyback.

I'm torn between two trains of thought:

When viewed as "the new hotel addition to joint Steve Wynn turned into the crown jewel of downtown" these rooms look like a Mexican restaurant in the Fashion District exploded.

When viewed in comparison with the rest of the stuff offered downtown, it looks like a mega-swanky deal waiting to be had.

Looks great, but with single king beds only I'll have to stick to the other towers when I head out there with my buddies this summer.

You didn't mention (maybe you didn't realize) that the entire tower is non smoking!

I can't believe I forgot to mention the fact the tower is non-smoking. Of course by now, there's no telling how many folks have already busted that rule.

This has become our favorite place to stay and we've stayed in the Rush Tower multiple times. Modern rooms, good restaurants, cool pool, great casino action with lower limits than the strip ... IMO this is the best value in Vegas. Snagged mid-week rate of $69 per night this past August and it included a fun book with free meals, free drinks, match play offers and other coupons. Awesome value and only 20 minutes to the strip.
