The Lo-Fi Charm of Gold Spike
» filed under Las Vegas tagged: misnomer gold spike downtown comments: 8
Thanks to a twit-tip from Friend of the Show @TheCosmicJester, today we consider the Lo-Fi charm of the Off-Fremont hotel and casino known as the Gold Spike. In particular, we examine the amenities that the Gold Spike includes in their guest rooms. Below is a screen capture, taken from their website, of their Deluxe Queen room inclusions.
Note that 120 volts of Nikola Tesla's newfangled "alternating current" comes standard. That's electricity, son. Feel free to bring all manner of small appliance, and Gold Spike will power them for you. Toaster oven? Power. Blender? Power. Hitachi Magic Wand? POWER. 240v electric clothes dryer? Ooh, sorry. They draw the line at 120 volts.
Look, we're not taking a cheap shot at Gold Spike. To the contrary. Their list of room amenities is awesome. If anything, they stopped short. Some additional suggestions:
- Breathable Air
- Three Dimensions
- Tactile Surfaces
