This is Stinky. His real name is Festus O. Otter but due to popular consensus among the under 5 set at the airport, he goes by “Stinky.”
Stinky just took his first trip ever and it was to Las Vegas! We went with my Aunt V for a long weekend.
We stayed at the Golden Nugget in downtown Vegas. It was a very nice room in the Gold Tower. We went on an offer from Groupon Travel and the VIP package was included, along with a fairly standard packet of coupons and tickets to the impressionist at the hotel, Gordie Brown. The VIP package let us check in and out away from a long line of people and gave us access to as much free bottled water (as opposed to buying the $7 bottle that was in the room) and juice as we wanted (as well as peanuts, M&Ms and internet access in the VIP lounge).
The hotel is old but is in good shape (at least where we were was). The room was clean, huge and the air conditioner worked like a champ. The beds were comfortable. The shower was a little slow to drain, but it didn’t get more than an inch or so deep with water so not really an issue. I will say that the filtration system isn’t as top-notch as the ones at the newer Strip hotels. We were on a non-smoking floor. The room wasn’t smoky, but the hallway was and the casino really was. I mean, there is smoking allowed at all the casinos as far as I know but it was less noticeable at the newer ones.
