Silver Sevens Hotel & Casino has a bit of everything — except those illegal things that people seem to think permeate all of Las Vegas. Located east of the Strip, you can reach Silver Sevens from Flamingo Road. They even offer a free shuttle to and from the airport and the Strip. We’re not going to list the whole schedule, you can contact the front desk for that, but the point is you can get anywhere you need to go. But they still do all they can to keep you in the casino.In a courtyard at the center of the property is a lovely swimming pool to help you make the most of the city's sunny weather — AKA the fire in the sky that makes you dive into the pool for relief. And in what we like to call the “cooler” months, when the temperature dips below 60 and all the locals put on winter coats, the fitness center will keep you warm and in shape.If you’ve worked up an appetite at either the pool or fitness center, or you just feel like eating because you don’t need any other excuse than that, get a taste of what we in the U.S. like to consider world cuisines — like Italian, Chinese and Mexican along with American-style seafood and steaks — at the S7 Buffet. Open 24 hours, the The Sterling Spoon Café, which has a faux garden setting, serves everything from snacks to barbecue combination platters, T-bone steak dinners and baby back ribs. There are some wonderful graveyard specials as well. On Friday and Saturday nights, guests can also indulge in a more upscale steakhouse-style menu with fine spirits in The Back Room at The Sterling Spoon which is not nearly as creepy as it sounds.Like watching sports and/or using sports as a reason to not talk to anyone while you drink? At William Hill Race & Sports Book you can order beers and other cocktails from the nearby sports bar. And a second bar, the Corona Cantina, is situated near a stage in a lounge where you'll often find live entertainment. And if you are into talking to people, or at least love shouting “bingo” when you win and obscenities when you lose, play bingo in Silver Sevens’ state-of-the-art bingo room.Silver Sevens offers all the necessary modern hotel amenities while boasting an entertaining and affordable atmosphere — just a jaunt from the Las Vegas Strip. It may not be a hard six, but rolling sevens is nothing to feel bad about. (That’s a craps reference in case you didn’t know.)

Great experience. Jacuzy was available outdoor and in the room. Only hiccup was the lack of guidance for the restaurant VS buffet line. It is also sad that most (all?) casinos in Vegas allow smoking indoors. Shuttle back to airport was also very nice!

The Golden Nugget was originally built in 1946 but there's nothing about this property that feels dated. It's the largest Downtown Las Vegas hotel and it feels more like the kind of resort you'd find on the Las Vegas Strip with its luxurious pool, spa and top-notch dining and entertainment.Casino mogul Steve Wynn bought the Golden Nugget in the early '70s and transformed it from just a casino into a luxury resort that earned its first four diamond rating from Mobil Travel Guide in 1977. As ownership changed hands over the years, more hotel towers were added to the property including the latest, the Rush Tower, in 2009. The Rush Tower rooms are twenty percent larger than the hotel's standard rooms and feature upgraded amenities and views of the Strip, mountains and the pool. So if you need added space in a room, book the Rush Tower.We can't talk about the Golden Nugget without talking more about its pool. This isn’t your average ordinary pool. It's dubbed The Tank because it basically doubles as a shark tank. Yep, guests who slide down the three-story enclosed water slide will pass right through an aquarium filled with sharks (Unlike the CSI Vegas episode, these sharks stay in the tank). For those who prefer a little less wildlife while they're catching rays, there are daybeds, cabanas and a bar. Another two-level, infinity-edge pool, called The Hideout, can be accessed from the third floor of The Tank. We love it because it's for adults (ages 21 or older) only.   If aquariums really are your thing, be sure to eat at the Chart House restaurant inside. Its bar wraps around a 75,000-gallon tropical aquarium filled with more than 1,000 colorful fish. The Golden Nugget is packed with restaurants to suit just about any taste. Go to the Grotto for Italian classics and a bright and open setting. Claim Jumper serves hearty portions of classic American food and Vic and Anthony’s is an award-winning, elegant steakhouse with the finest cuts of meat around. If you're hungry and thirsty, Cadillac Mexican Cantina & Tequila Bar may just be your utopia. Not only can you get your favorite south-of-the-border dishes, there’s a selection of more than 70 boutique tequilas and they sell giant 80-ounce beer towers.Looking for a place to party that doesn't involve tequila and beer towers? On the resort's second floor, the balcony at Gold Diggers nightclub looks out over all the crazy action on the Fremont Street Experience below. (Hello people watching.) When you step inside, there's a great bar and dancing. Downstairs, the Rush Lounge is the spot to sip signature cocktails, or you can order one of 40 different brews from the International Beer Bar. There's also Bar 46, an oval-shaped bar with a table games area that spills out onto Fremont Street.If you're looking for entertainment, the resort's showroom is pretty much always stocked with stars. Impressionist Gordie Brown brings nearly a hundred celebs -- from icons like Elvis and Michael Jackson to Aaron Neville and Sylvester Stallone -- to life onstage. The Golden Nugget also boasts a rotating lineup of the hottest headliners in music and comedy with their 52 Fridays Concert Series performing every Friday throughout 2015. From Grammy award-winning artists and legendary tribute bands to country music hall of famers and epic classic rock bands, you can catch it all here.The other thing you have to see while you're at the Golden Nugget is, well, an actual golden nugget. Dubbed The Hand of Faith, the biggest golden nugget in existence (61 pounds!) is showcased at the hotel. It was found in Australia in 1980 and was sold to the Golden Nugget for more than a million dollars. See it on display in the lobby and snap a quick selfie with it. Look ma I discovered gold in Vegas!The Golden Nugget takes its gold pretty seriously. Not only can you see a massive piece of gold on display at the hotel you can also shop for gold in an ATM. The hotel is one of only three locations in North America to have a Gold to Go ATM, which is basically a vending machine for gold. The ATM is always online and updates prices every 10 minutes based on current gold spot prices. Along with gold bars of various weights ranging between one gram and one ounce, the vending machine also sells traditional gold coins and Golden Nugget souvenir pieces. We can't think of a better way to commemorate your stay at the hotel.
 

Are your pools heated?

The pool was not heated, but the outdoor jacuzy next to the pool was. :-)
