The beef jerky shop actually has excellent jerky lol. Worth a visit!

The dancing dealers at The D doesn't help the casino, it just makes it feel like a casino in a third world country. The upstairs part of The D is more tolerable. The Golden Gate is much worse.

Working for Derek for any length of time is likely to crush one’s soul, crush hope or destroy sense of ethics, one of the three is inevitable. Plus, he treats objects like women and stuff.

It's been many years since I stayed at the GN, it was probably round 09 the last time I stayed there. The room was very dated, dank and on the small side, almost depressing. My nephew stayed there a few years back. I thought his room was crappy as well.
I can't put my finger on just one thing, but I'm just not a fan of the GN casino over all. However, The shark pool is cool.

When the DTG first opened, I stayed there multiple times with comped rooms. I thought the rooms were better than most places I stayed at downtown.

Just don't let anyone sell you a deal on a room on the fourth floor...

And I assume the Mob Bar was still open when you were there? DTG has gone through quite a few changes since it opened.

Not even sure what Mob Bar you are referring to.

Its been a while since I have been in the DTG as well.

Hmmm. I'm skeptical and a beef jerky snob. Can you recommend any particular brand?

Apparently, it doesn't have one; at least, the elevators don't stop there. I am guessing it is for the same reason most hotels don't have 13th floors - in China, 4 is unlucky, as it sounds too much like the word for "death."
