Hospitality and Transportation
Located in the heart of Fremont Street’s never-ending party, Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino offers a hip vintage vibe you just won’t find on the Strip. The dazzling light shows. The buoyant live music. The world’s largest nugget of gold. You’ll be able to experience it all firsthand when you stay at Golden Nugget Las Vegas.
Our Downtown Las Vegas hotel features more than 2,000 inviting rooms and suites designed with a variety of thoughtful amenities. After an adventurous day, dip into our lagoon-style swimming pool, which circles a three-story shark tank with a waterslide running right through it.

Bell Transportation runs bus shuttle service from the airport to Downtown Vegas every twenty minutes for $9.00 each way. If you book a roundtrip at pickup, you get $1 off. SuperShuttle (shared service) is $10 each way if you book a roundtrip. Uber costs anywhere from $9-15 each way depending on time of day for up to 4 people (Uber is demand based service which is why the range, prices go up during high demand periods). Best deal by far is Uber if you and your coach are traveling together with golf clubs.
TIU is also making it’s corporate discount available with ShipSticks should anyone wish to use them instead of shipping on the airlines (normally $50-60 each way), shlepping golf bags to and from the airport and get them to the hotel. Pricing from east coast and including discount, it runs approximately $65 each way door to door service so your clubs will be waiting at the hotel for you when you arrive. Rate is based on ground service so if you’re on the east coast you need to ship at least 5 days prior to your arrival. Three day express is $89 each way. Next day air is $160 each way.
Transportation from the hotel and back is being provided by the Nevada Blind Children’s Foundation. We will announce pickup times in the near future. Return times will be 30 minutes after expected finish for the round. We expect three pickups going and coming.
