Golden Gate Hotel and Casino
The Golden Gate Hotel and Casino, now owned and operated by Desert Rock Enterprises, first opened its doors in 1906. This makes it the most historic hotel and casino complex in Las Vegas, Nevada today. It has won multiple awards, including the USA Today Travel Experience Editor’s Choice for Ultimate Vegas Party Spot and the Best Downtown Revamp of 2013.
It’s also Fremont Street’s smallest hotel, with just 106 rooms in the centre of the Freemont Street Experience. The Fremont Street Experience is a pedestrian mall that brings several of the best playing and other experiences in Las Vegas together. These include live performances and dazzling water and light shows, and are considered by many to be an essential part of any Vegas trip. The Golden Gate Hotel and Casino allows players to enjoy all of this, while staying in historic and exclusive accommodation.
Staying at the Golden Gate
All of the rooms in the hotel are comfortable, with pillow-top mattresses, high-speed Wi-Fi, cable television, flat-screen televisions and more. The luxury suites have a contemporary feel, but they also give a respectful nod to the hotel’s decades of heritage.
Each room features pinstriped carpets that are inspired by the Swing era and Art Deco accents, and a different iconic Vegas celebrity is pictured in every one. Many of these stars were also guests at the Golden Gate, so the tributes are especially fitting.
Players can choose to eat at Du-Par’s Coffee Shop, or at the San Francisco Shrimp Bar & Deli. The signature Shrimp Cocktail at this eatery started the tradition of serving the dish all over Sin City, and is stull named Best of Las Vegas year in and year out.
For a change of pace and some exciting nightlife, players can enjoy the 2 bars at the casino and take in the live entertainments at the nearby Downtown Las Vegas Event Centre. Being right on the Freemont Street Experience means Golden Gate players also get to enjoy some of the biggest-name acts in the world as they grace the 3 stages, including Lady Antebellum and Kid Rock.
Playing at the Golden Gate
There are over 400 Slots games to choose from at the Golden Gate Hotel and Casino, as well as a full range of Table Games including Craps, Blackjack and other classics, as well as newer games like Riverboat Roulette, Let it Ride and 3-Card Poker. The biggest Roulette win in Vegas history also took place at the Golden Gate, in October 2010, and the casino is still very proud of this. A comprehensive Sports Book rounds out the betting opportunities, and there are regularly changing promotions to help you bet and win even more.
The Dancing Dealers, modeled after the Flappers of the Roaring Twenties, are as much a Golden Gate Hotel and Casino signature as the Shrimp Cocktail is. Their constant enthusiasm adds another level of glamour and fun to playing at this casino. When their shifts are over, they are even often seen partying with guests and dancing in the Freemont Street Experience!
