The hotel allows people to throw towels on the pool chase lounges to reserve them. This needs to be reinforced that if your not using a lounger then your towel and personal items will be removed after an hour of non use. Other than that my hotel stay was great.

recently renovated, nice view, attentive staff

overall it was a good stay but we did wait in line to check in longer than we would have liked but the staff realized the line was moving slowly so they added more staff to help us move along. also we didn't have any creamer in our room for the coffee maker and had to call but housekeeping came up right away. overall visually appealing. nice choice of restaurants. our biggest letdown which really wasn't a big deal was the poorly planned walk from the parking garage to the front desk to check in and to use the hotel elevators. too much up and down and across and back.. with poor signage.

Good camouflage IF you want a hotel that blends in

For the most part, I cannot complain about my stay. We were placed in a very nice room, for the most part. The issues I had with my stay are small and may very well be considered abundant everywhere else. First things first, Check In? More like a preview of downstairs in the afterlife. The lines were very long. Next stop? To the 20th floor in which on the way I followed by security and asked if I had more than a "six pack" in the box I was carrying. Hm, Ok. Small issues, nothing too big.. Except the fact that we had a bug problem. Now when I say bugs, I mean "nats" or shall I say fruit flies. As harmless as they seem, They are particularly annoying especially in large groups. They took a liking to our pillows, our bed and also and belongings laying around the room. Alongside the little bug issue, There seemed to be a slight mildew smell in the bathroom. We eventually went downstairs and had a talk with the receptionist which resulted in an upgrade to a suite for the remaining night. Needless to say, I was impressed but still felt that the rooms should of been thoroughly checked before having someone stay in there. Overall, It was a pleasant experience (try chart house, especially the lava cake.) But, I don't see anything besides the roof pool that makes this hotel stand out from the rest.

Amazing Hotel and Amazing Staff

I recently visited the Golden Nugget Atlantic City for the DJ Expo.  I booked my room and unfortunately they were over capacity.  So they upgraded me with no problem.  I went from a regular room to the H2O Suite which had its own balcony and private access to the roof.  We forgot toothpaste at home and called up main desk.  Someone was at our door in 5 minutes.  Room service was great and they service alcohol to the rooms.  The pool and decks were amazing and me and my wife had an amazing time.  We will be staying at the Golden Nugget again.  For the money you pay you are getting an amazing room and 5 minutes from the boardwalk.

Beautiful Room, Very Clean

Really nice room on the 16th floor at the Golden Nugget.  Was close to the vending area and thought it would be noisy but we didn't hear a thing.  Really clean rooms that appear to have been newly renovated.  Overall a very good experience!

Great Value

The new Golden Nugget is a nice level in-between the luxury casinos (Borgata and Revel) and the more rundown casinos on the boardwalk (Taj Mahal). Very happy with the stay, and very little smoke smell in the room.
