GILDED AGE

WITH A CASINO EX­PAN­SION IN THE WORKS, GOLDEN GATE’S BEST DEALS ARE ABOUT TO BE A LIT­TLE LESS SE­CRET.

You may have passed the Golden Gate Ho­tel & Casino along the Fre­mont Street Ex­pe­ri­ence a thou­sand times, but you might not know that the ho­tel in fact pre­dates the Ex­pe­ri­ence by 90 years. In 2012, Derek and Greg Stevens bought a 50 per­cent stake in the now-111-year- old prop­erty—adding a five- story ho­tel tower with 14 new suites and two pent­houses. Last year, they be­came the Golden Gate’s full own­ers, and in Fe­bru­ary they be­gan a ma­jor casino ex­pan­sion. Ex­pect those two “se­cret” 1,600- square­foot pent­houses to lose their in­sider qual­ity. But un­til you can’t book them any­more, en­joy their out­door pa­tios this sum­mer—with wet bars, fire­places, lounge seat­ing, a grill, and a 50-inch TV. Start­ing at $ 599, the pent­houses cost less than the nightly price of a Strip suite.

Fact: Golden Gate had the first 50- cent shrimp cock­tail in Ve­gas. Its real bar­gains are the mas­sive pent­houses.
