VT reader ChrisRobbins1980 spent four nights in Suite 45 at the Golden Gate in September and brought back this quickie little trip review. Take it away Chris!

Golden Gate Vegas Suites

Arrived at the Golden Gate on Sept. 27th for a 3 night stay in Suite 45 of the Golden Gate Casino. Check-in was extremely fast, as I was the only one in line at the time I showed up. A quick trip up the elevator to the 4th floor, and a 20 yard walk down the hallway I was in my room.

Golden Gate Vegas Suites

1st impression was "man, I wish my bedroom looked like this" Modern feel with nostalgic touches, pretty spacious, but not large by any means. Originally booked with just my buddy and I (couch is of the pull out variety) but last minute another friend joined us so it was a little cramped for 3 people, but not bad at all.

Everything was extremely clean, well kept as expected for a room that's only a year or so old.

Bathroom set up was a little awkward for 3 guys, but we made it work. Nice private shitter (really enjoyed looking at M. Monroe while I pissed, but frosted glass doors was a little strange when doing #2. Same as separate shower.

The sink being in a common area was nice, allowed for multiple people to get ready. Shower itself was great.

Rain fall faucet with the regular shower head made for a great shower experience. Slate decor of the stall was masculine and really appealed to me.

Sectional couch was super comfy, one complaint was that the pull out bed had 1 broken leg, so it slanted quite a bit, but going to bed drunk it wasn't a factor. TV was fairly big, good reception, had enough channels to make me happy for the limited time it was on.

The king bed was EXTREMELY comfortable, sheets clean and crisp. A nice variety of pillow softness available too.

All the accent pieces were well thought through. Sleek and masculine seems to be what they aimed for. Stainless steel, slate and chrome look throughout the room with modern carpeting. All in all, certainly a room I would stay in again (FYI didn't have to pay resort fee, booked it before the change)

A few notes in general about the Golden Gate:

Staff was super friendly, never encountered one rude or disinterested person. Front desk was great, one downside of key cards constantly failing was going to the front desk, but they were awesome.

Despite the fact that downtown was packed that weekend for the D's 1st anniv. The Golden Gate kept $5 minimums at quite a few tables. No price gouging was awesome!

Bartender Eric outside at the 1 Bar was super cool. Made drinks STIFF and didn't mind chatting with my friends and I for hours about any topic. The ideal bartender who just seems like your friend.

Mike a casino host was great too. Gave me an extra VIP passes for the STP and Kid Rock concerts when I told him we had a 3rd person in the room.

But one thing is for certain, Mr. Stevens has a great property that really makes you feel welcome.

Comments & Discussion:

Excellent review Chrisrobbins1980. Oh wait, that's me.

Har, har. Thanks, Chris. Had a great time hanging out at Golden Gate last weekend. I've never stepped foot inside it before, but I'll return.

I hadn't been there until a few years ago, now I flock to the place like a groupie.

Wow! Who knew? That is really nice, much more than I would have expected. I too like the masculine colors, textures. Thanks for the review.

I stayed in the same suite for #vimfp. Man were my neighbors loud! j/k

How much was the room? Thanks.

I paid $180 per night for Fri-Sun 3 night stay.

Saw blackjacker's this last weekend. The space in person is even more impressive - a little flair and creativity going a long way. While I'm excited to see what Downtown Grand has in store, of the DTLV hotels, I think I was most impressed with the Gate's package of small size, comfort, and personal service.
