The Four Queens Hotel & Casino in downtown is a historic property imbued with class and old Vegas glamour.Situated at the intersection of Casino Center Boulevard and Fremont Street, the hotel is part of the revitalization occurring in this iconic area of the city. It's connected to Fremont Street Experience, and its main entrance is positioned underneath the stunning multimillion-light Viva Vision canopy. Plus, there's nearby access to The Deuce and the Strip & Downtown Express bus systems as well as to an assortment of hotels, shops, restaurants and attractions.Sharing the excitement of the rapidly transforming gaming and hospitality industries, the Four Queens blends technology and a pinch of cosmopolitan chic with vintage cool. Opened in 1966, the property is, indeed, steeped in culture. The colorful neon signage and flashing lightbulbs give the exterior charm, while interior elements -- such as the marble floor and mirrored ceiling in the lobby -- create a feeling of elegance and refinement.  There are 690 rooms and suites at the Four Queens, all with timeless style and spacious floor plans. They are perfect for leisure or business travelers. There is also a lovely pool.Hipsters head for the hotel's intimate Canyon Club showroom to see a variety of performers. It's got rustic oak décor, and the stage is surrounded by big sofas, coffee tables and simple folding chairs. Bands usually play late on weekend evenings. The early evenings are also magical, thanks to the comic trickery of Mike Hammer. For a memorable meal, step into Hugo's Cellar, a gourmet restaurant that opened with the resort. It's still operating and offers patrons the chance to go back in time and enjoy impeccable service paired with a sumptuous menu. Each woman is given a long-stemmed red rose, and all guests will be enchanted by the brick-lined walls and tableside salad preparation.Magnolia's Veranda, a 24-hour coffee shop, is also a long-running favorite with visitors and in-the-know locals, thanks to its tempting $9.95 prime rib special.  The most recent eatery to appear on the premises is the Chicago Brewing Company. Along with handcrafted microbrews, you can bite into a fresh-baked pizza or kick back for a smoke in the cigar lounge. Quick and affordable snacks can be found at Subway, Noble Roman's Pizza and Dreyer's Ice Cream as well.  The casino floor at the Four Queens is packed with a mix of table games. Slot and video poker machines run the gamut and are regularly updated to reflect the latest trends. For example, a bank of Paradise Fishing machines was recently installed. There are several bars as well, including a giant center bar just inside the main doors. A new outdoor bar is set up each night for passers-by at the east entrance, and a Chicago Brewing Company truck pours beers for thirsty visitors near the west entrance.  Combining fun and comfort with a great location in the heart of downtown, the Four Queens is where to stay if you want to experience the best of Vegas' past and present.-- By Renée LiButti

Management SHOULD NOT over book their room with a customer who has a multiple day stay reserved January 12, 2014 (stay dates March 15 - March 18)
PostedApril 1, 2014
After calling the front desk the morning of March 15 to say we WERE staying with Four Queens( per the January 12 reservation), but would be arriving on a late flight about 12 midnight, we were told at the front desk there were no more rooms available when we arrived. The front desk attendant ( sorry I did not get his name) was embarrassed and apologetic, but had to call Eddie (the night manager) to get everything straightened out. He was also apologetic, and offered us a free dinner if we check in at the desk the next evening. Since we were going on to Minneapolis on March 18 and did not have a car, they found us a room at Gold Coast, gave us a ride to that hotel arriving at 3 am in the morning. The hotel limousine picked us up in the morning and after discussing the situation with the day manager, I believe her name was Ruby, she gave us a nice suite for the same price as our original reservation and a $30.00 meal voucher for Magnolias, the in-house restaurant.
The staff on duty at our arrival was exceptional, and I hope you realize they went way beyond their job description when they have to make up for others mistakes at 1 am in the morning with very tired travelers. (we had a 6 hour flight to Las Vegas before arriving). There is no excuse for giving away a room of a customer who not only has a multiple day stay, maked a reservation more than 2 months ahead of time, but ALSO call to CONFIRM that reservation the morning of the arrival.
The hotel, casino, room and restaurant was very nice, once we were able to get into our room. Discussions with management needs to address overbooking and also discussing with staff to be sure that a confirmation of a reservation the day of arrival needs to be noted so the guest will have accommodations when arrive.
We enjoy the affordable rates and the downtown location of the Four Queens. Since we stayed twice , both February and March 2014, I hope this problem will be remedied before we consider our trip to
Las Vegas next year.
We have stayed in 4 other hotel casinos both on the strip and downtown, but no matter where we stay, or how extensive the
"interior decorating" we always expect competent service.
My ratings were positive BECAUSE the staff working late night
March 15 was able to solve a major problem.
I hope I can consider a SUCCESSFUL stay at the Four Queens in the future.

There's always something going on at the Stratosphere, which is conveniently situated between downtown Las Vegas and the Strip. The resort, which boasts the tallest freestanding tower in the United States, is also home to several great restaurants, two enjoyable shows, plenty of shops and four heart-stopping thrill rides.At 1,149 feet, the Stratosphere Tower dwarfs everything else in the city. Since it extends to such a great height, it's visible from nearly every vantage point in Las Vegas. So you can just imagine the extraordinary perspective you'll have when looking down upon the entire valley from the top. In less than 40 seconds, high-speed elevators will take you to the 109th floor, where there's an indoor and outdoor observation deck.It's hard to believe four thrill rides and the Air Bar -- as you may find you need a drink! -- are also located here. Screams of terror as well as delight can be heard coming from X-Scream (something of a giant teeter totter), Insanity (a chaotic spinning ride) and SkyJump (a cable-controlled freefall). The Big Shot, a fearsome ride that shoots straight up into the air and then drops back down to the launch pad, somehow temporarily eliminates the feeling of gravity.A safer and saner way to enjoy the tower is with a fine meal in the Top of the World restaurant. One of Las Vegas' premier gourmet rooms, it serves sophisticated cuisine impeccably paired with wine and complemented by a 360-degree view of the city -- because the floor makes a complete rotation every 80 minutes. If you just want to sip on a cocktail while taking in the extraordinary views, head up a floor to the Level 107 Lounge.Preparing eccellènte pasta and other Italian delights is the pride and joy of Fellini's Ristorante Italiano. Singing for your supper is all the rage at Roxy's Diner. The cool waitstaff in this nostalgic restaurant, known for its old-fashioned home cooking, often put on a show. Stop by McCall's Heartland Grill for a hearty mix of steak and seafood in a Midwestern-style restaurant. The Buffet -- with its array of cuisines, carving stations, a deli area and fresh-baked pastries -- is simply delicious at any time of the day. Or the Tower Pizzeria & Creamery is a great place to grab a quick slice and a scoop of ice cream.Frankie Moreno and his 10-piece band create a party atmosphere each evening in the resort's main showroom with their undeniable musical talent, swagger and shots of Crown Royal whiskey. They play a captivating collection of classic covers and original hits. Moreno has also produced a show called "Pin Up." The swingin' production stars Claire Sinclair, a Playboy Playmate, and was choreographed by Lacey Schwimmer of "Dancing with the Stars."Open seasonally, summers at the Stratosphere are best spent at the Level 8 Pool, located on the eighth floor. In addition to a hot tub, poolside café and bar, you'll always find a game of water volleyball in session.For a more serious workout, check out the resort's 24-hour fitness center. Or do something wonderful for both your body and spirit by getting treatment, massage or facial at the Roni Josef International Salon & Spa. It's guaranteed to melt all your stresses away!For those who dream of shopping around the world, there's the Tower Shops with 32 stores and an eclectic mix of retail carts. Explore the avenues of Paris, the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong and the ritzy neighborhoods of New York City at this unique retail complex that features replicated street scenes from those iconic shopping cities.About a mile from both the heart of the Strip and downtown, the Stratosphere offers visitors a convenient connection to all the action via The Deuce and the Strip and Downtown Express bus systems.No visit to Las Vegas would be complete without exploring the Stratosphere and its famous tower -- and staying here is even better. The resort is affordably priced and perfectly placed for a fantastic vacation!-- By Renée LiButti

We would return at another time
PostedMarch 16, 2013
Unfortunately, the location is not near enough to downtown or the strip for walking at night, so we walked during the day, but had to pay to get back in the evening. It would be nice to have a "pass", discount or shuttle service exclusively for Stratosphere guests for transportation. I know you want everyone to stay within your facilities, but realistically, you know they are going to go to see the other sites of Vegas! Also, the free cable station choices were very limited compared to other casinos we have stayed at in Vegas. I would have considered paying a few dollars extra for A & E , History, and Discovery stations, but didn't find an upgrade option on the room TV.
We really enjoyed the free entrance to the Stratosphere tower BOTH days we were there. Since we were only there during weekdays, we missed seeing Pin Up, but would consider staying again to catch it with your discount.
Your facilities were nice and the cleaning staff did an especially thorough job during our stay. Thanks to Maria! The view from our room was very nice also, we like the higher floors. Other staff (for our midnight check in) we encountered at different times were very courteous and helpful.
We strolled through your retail area several times and made purchases there. Mc Donalds was also very appreciated for a quick coffee.
Thanks for an opportunity to let you know how we liked our stay. We would consider staying with you again in the future.

Has the adult pool reopened yet?

Yes, there is a pool facility, but I don't think it is exclusive to adults.
