Safety at Golden Nugget-Solo

Im going to Vegas solo in Feb. Would you feal better off getting the gold room at the golden nugget, that I will need a key to get to the floor where I will be staying, or would you feal safe enough staying at just one of the regular rooms at the golden nugget?

THank you

I go to Vegas Solo all the time. Never had I felt afraid at the GN. Nor at 4Q.

The room is your choice. In June I was in the Carson tower and far from the elevator. But never once were there any problems.

thanks for the reply. I wanted to stay at the gold club room, but they are going to take off 200.00 a night for incidentals that makes a total of 1000.00 that I can use to shop with, not really likeing that. I know I get it back at the end but still lol.

Thanks

I wouldn't worry about safetly in the hotel at all. And key checking is near useless.

You dont need to worry about it. The golden Nugget seem to be very safe. They have lots of senior clientele so of course their safety is a top priority.

You can inquire for sure when you arrive but I think what they will actually do is block off $200 from your card the first night and if nothing is charged to it in the hotel that day they will 'roll it over " and continue to keep the same $200 blocked throughout your stay , renewing it daily. So , it really shouldn't ever tie up $1000 if you never charge anything to your room. I think I am correct , but you can ask at the desk at check in.

I've stayed at the El Cortez, Golden Gate and Four Queens solo with no problems. I certainly would not be worried about any of the rooms at Golden Nugget.

I am probably a lot more security conscious than most. When in Vegas the usual security precautions should suffice. Be aware of your surroundings, Do not get too intoxicated, keep valuables out of sight, etc.In other words if you do not look like an easy mark the criminal element will probably look for an easy mark.

hubby and i often split up while we gamble. he plays poker and i prefer video poker. he's also more of a night owl than i am, so i will head to bed around midnight and he will play poker until 2 or 3. we've stayed at the golden nugget several times and i have never felt unsafe wandering around the casino or going to my room alone. of course you need to use your brain and be aware of what is going on around you.

the casino is full of servers and security guards and other hotel employees. if you feel that someone is paying you some unwanted attention, just ask a security guard for an escort.

They are not going to take $1000 for incidentals, think about it... That being said you are likely safe inside of the hotel regardless of what room type you are in.
