Golden Gate Hotel & Casino recently celebrated its 75 anniversary with its first major renovation in five decades. The 122-room boutique hotel has added a five-story luxury tower with 16 suites — some named in honor of members of the Rat Pack (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. stayed and played at the Golden Gate in the ’50s). Modern in-suite amenities include 50-inch flat-screen TVs, California king beds and motion sensors for climate control. The expanded casino features a new high-limit pit where guests can wager up to $3,000 a hand. The renovated lobby displays artifacts from the hotel’s history.
