Hotel of the week: Rush Tower, Las Vegas
The real selling point of Rush Tower is the Tank: a tropical aquarium with a 200,000-gallon shark tank at its center.
New hotels are popping up all over the Las Vegas strip, but the Golden Nugget’s Rush Tower is the first to open in downtown Vegas in 20 years, said Chris Erskine in the Los Angeles Times. The 25-floor hotel keeps up with the latest in comfort, from pillow-top mattresses to plasma TVs. The real selling point, however, is the Tank: a tropical aquarium with a 200,000-gallon shark tank at its center. Guests can take in views of the marine life from the Chart House restaurant—or, better yet, venture down a three-story water slide past the shark-infested waters.Contact: Goldennugget.com
