Carson tower or Main Street Station

Will be in town on Feb. 5 for seven nights. First two reduced at M, and next three comped at Planet Hollywood. First stay there. Planned to stay at Main Street Station for nights 6 and 7, but this month they showed me no love at all. Past several months have been offered free rooms and $40 food credit, nada for February. In Oct DW and I stayed in a Jr Corner suite at GN and liked it a lot. Can't see paying the extra however for a solo trip, so here is the question; Carson Tower, or Main Street Station? Love playing VP at MSS, just not sure I want to stay there for the same money. Please, if you've stayed at either recently let me know what you think!

We've stayed at MSS and while the room was clean, comfortable, and good experience...you know the GN property is a notch above (and the Carson tower is the newest area).

I say MSS, why don't you call and see if they'll do anything for you. We've stayed at MSS several times and Carson Tower once; like MSS better!

Ducky, Rush Tower is the newest...Carson Tower is the old "South Tower" that is a longer walk from the casino.

Just stayed in a Carson Tower room last week. I knew it was the oldest tower, so I wasn't expecting much. That being said I was very pleasantly surprised. It appeared updated with a pretty bathroom and flat screen t.v. The bed was comfy as well. My only complaint was that the tv channels were really fuzzy-kind of ridiculous to have a nice tv and have such fuzzy channels. The rooms aren't right off the casino floor, but the distance certainly wasn't anything I minded.

Both have good things to offer.

The Nugget is in the middle of the action. The Carson Tower rooms are fine and the "walk" is overstated. The casino at the Nugget is more appealing IMO.

Don't think you could go wrong with either, but - at an equal price point - the Nugget's location would be preferrable to me.
