Golden Nugget Undergoes Major Transformation

October 2, 2006 By: Joe Pike Travel Agent

The historic casino and hotel in downtown Las Vegas adds spa, salon and new restaurants

A project that is being described as the "largest and
most dramatic" undertaking for the Golden Nugget Las Vegas in more than 20
years is coming closer to completion.

This historic property in downtown Las Vegas is undergoing a transformation;
several components of the project are already completed and unveiled. The
60-year-old hotel and casino is getting new restaurants and amenities such as a
spa and salon.

Golden Nugget owner Landry's Restaurants, Inc., one of the
nation's largest casual dining, entertainment and hospitality companies,
expects its renovation and expansion plan to be completed by this November,
according to Sylke Neal-Finnegan, a Golden Nugget spokesperson.

Upgrades include a new spa and salon

"Over the last few years, Las Vegas has evolved into a world-class
destination offering much more than gaming, such as dining, shopping,
entertainment, spas and golf. Downtown Las
is no exception," says Vince Alberta, vice
president of public affairs for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors

"With the destination's popularity at an all-time high,
it's natural for resorts in the downtown area to be looking toward the future
with expansions and renovations, such as what we're seeing at the Golden Nugget
and Lady Luck. As for targeting families, while Las Vegas does offer attractions for visitors
of all ages, it is still a destination best enjoyed by adults."

Some of the recently completed portions of the project
include the relocation and updating of the poker rooms, featuring 10 smoke-free
tables with plush seating, first-class service and 24-hour action in an
intimate atmosphere. Also, the fitness area has been updated and expanded with
the addition of a spa and salon.

The Spa and Salon

Open to the public, The Spa at the Golden Nugget has private
facilities for men and women, providing 10 treatment rooms, fully appointed
lounges, herbal steam rooms and saunas.

A manicure and pedicure room, and complete salon and fitness
rooms round out the amenities.

Signature massages and body treatments include relaxing and
therapeutic massages designed and tailored to each individual guest: Lavender
Dreams Ultimate Experience, a full-body scrub, wrap and massage incorporating
the essence of wild lavender; Essential Oil Wrap, a full-body wrap
incorporating essential oils to relieve muscle tension and promote
detoxification and hydration and Sunless Tanning Treatment, which includes
gentle exfoliation and application of a botanical sunless tanning lotion.

The salon also has a line of signature, custom facials for
men and women, foot and hand treatments, such as the Caviar Mani Kur and Caviar
Pedi Kur, make-up application and professional hair care services.

The fitness center—two rooms of state-of-the-art
cardiovascular equipment, free weights, core strength and Cybex
equipment—provides guests with the opportunity to get a complete physical
workout during their stay.

A facility fee of $20 provides access to the fitness center,
saunas and lounges. The Spa at the Golden Nugget is open daily from 7 a.m. to 7
p.m. Treatments are available from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Hours of operation are
subject to change seasonally.) For reservations, call 702-386-8845.

Other changes include a new location for The Buffet, which
will offer increased dining space overlooking the new pool, and an updated
array of food items available at the buffet.

There will also be the addition of another Landry's signature
concept restaurant, Grotto. A trattoria-style restaurant known for its
home-style Italian fare and inviting atmosphere, Grotto will be situated just
off of the South Tower lobby, with a patio area
overlooking the pool.

Other additions will include an expanded pool that will
incorporate an aquarium design to allow guests to swim inches away from sharks
and other marine life, and the relocation of an updated race and sports book,
as well as the addition of a new keno room.

Winner of the AAA Four-Diamond Award since 1977, the Golden
Nugget Las Vegas is the most luxurious resort in downtown Las Vegas, and consistently receives critical

The Golden Nugget offers 1,907 deluxe guest rooms and
suites, 38,000 square feet of casino space featuring slot and video poker
machines, table games, a race and sports book, a poker room, nightly
entertainment, restaurants, a spa and a salon.

In September 2005, Landry's Restaurants, Inc. purchased the
nearly 60-year-old hotel-casino.
