I s Rush Tower at Golden Nugget much better than Gold?

The only reason I'm asking is because I can get either one of them comped for my October trip. I do smoke and Rush Tower is non smoking, but if it is a whole lot nicer than the Gold, I could refrain from smoking in the room. Has anybody stayed at both that can give me an accurate comparison?

The bathroom is much nicer in the Rush, the rest of the room, is pretty close. The beds are awesome in both (pillowtops), both are large, but the RUsh has a sectional and the Gold is just a chair,the other thing the Rush has is the DVD player.. not sure on this but I think the Rush also has the Keurigs.. from the reviews it hit or miss if Gold has it.

Hee hee wise choice!.. the only thing else I'd like to note, is the elevators, when you push the button (on your floor, not casino level so much), it doesn't have a loud "ding" to tell you which one is opening... once Oxy and I were looking at the light above us, the door opened and the lady on board said.. "Ummmm, you guys gettin' on?" lol didn't hear the door open either (it was just a touch embarrassing) . Another plus for the Rush is that it's a small tower , so no walking miles of door to get to your room, even if it's at the end.

We stayed there a year ago @ Rush Tower...and loved it...

Very nicely appointed rooms...One problem we encountered was that the little wee bride...could not get out of the tub...as it has quite high sides...

The Grotto is ok for Italian food...

Go for the Rush Tower. I loved how large my room was. The bathroom is awesome and the bed was very comfy. Of anywhere DT, I would prefer this place. Be sure to eat at the Chart House behind the registration desk and at Grotto...delish Italian ! !

I have stayed at the gold but only the Rush tower Jr. Suite. the suite was way better. A couple things I remember the shower is very slippery with no hand rails very high to get in and out of , not many plugs, in order to get into the safe you have to kneel on the floor (not good for old knees). but it was beautiful , much more modern with superb linens and a HUGE bathroom. I would in a heart beat stay in the Rush tower over the gold.

we stayed in both. Stayed in rush corner jr suite and loved it. We also loved the gold club. the only real difference, no free water/snacks on the floor (you can get it in the VIP check in, and the spa (work out area) is not comped for rush tower, otherwise you can't go wrong with either room. The rush corner was really nice that we didn't have to walk down a really long hallway to get to the room. It was more like going to a room in a regular hotel somewhere else.

I think you have to define "better." We have stayed in both. I appreciate the newness of the Rush tower, but I love the convenience of the Gold tower. The air is also nice because it's on a thermostat and comes through vents rather than under your window in a big box. I like them both. I don't like the way the bathroom is arranged in the Rush tower with the commode in a water closet without a sink in there and the sink outside the door. Some people really like that arrangement. You'll probably enjoy the Rush tower. It's nice. Have a great trip!

Nothing wrong with regular rooms, but Rush Tower was nicer and newer.

Regular Gold Tower rooms are similar to Carson Tower rooms.

Rush Tower rooms are similar to Gold Club Rooms but with a larger open bathroom and none of the VIP extras.

I would always take Gold over Carson, Rush over Gold, and if you can live without the large open bathroom, Gold Club over Rush regular and Rush Corner suite.
