Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino
129 Fremont Street
Built in 1946, the Golden Nugget goes down in history as one of Fremont Street's oldest Hotel and Casino. The Hotel also boasts being the largest downtown with an whopping 2419 rooms.
What attraction might be here, a golden nugget perhaps? What else! You can visit the Hotel and Casino and view the largest nugget, the Hand of Faith, which is on display here. The nugget was found in Australia using a metal detector and was only 12 inches below the surface. It weighs in at 875 Troy ounces. It was rumored to have been sold to the Golden Nugget for $1 million USD.
Another draw for customers here are the two large aquariums full of varieties of fish and sharks. One of the tanks runs off the swimming pool and swimmers can take a slide which runs through the tank giving amazing views of the fish. The other smaller aquarium can be viewed from the lobby and also offers a great view and something just that little bit different to people dinning at the Grotto.
Golden Gate Hotel and Casino
1 Fremont Street
The Golden Gate first or Hotel Nevada as it was known then, opened it's doors in 1905 in a pop up tent that was used as a temporary measure until the permanent building construction was complete in 1906. This makes this Hotel and Casio the oldest downtown. The Golden Gate also holds the record for the smallest Hotel with 122 rooms.
