Rooms in the Klondike Tower are the newest. There's also a small arcade for kids, a seasonal swimming pool with a Jacuzzi, and meeting rooms. Plus, you can bring something back for those you left at home by stopping at the General Store Gift Shop.
The hotel is also located close to the Springs Preserve and Nevada State Museum. If you dig vintage and antique items, make sure to check out the Charleston Antique Mall, located in the shopping center adjacent to Arizona Charlie's. It's one of the largest antique shops in town.
