For the most part, people like to be in the action. For example, at a baseball game the seats directly behind home plate are far more exciting than the nosebleeds that practically require binoculars.And now that we have established that, we will let you know that one of our favorite parts about the Four Queens Hotel & Casino is that its location is practically the dugout – for non-baseball followers, it is smack-dab in the middle of the action.Boasting old Vegas glamour fashion (translation: lots of neon), this vintage property (it opened in 1966) is situated at the intersection of Casino Center Boulevard and Fremont Street and is part of the revitalization occurring in this iconic area of the city.Connected to Fremont Street Experience, the main entrance of the Four Queens is positioned underneath a stunning multimillion-light Viva Vision canopy that brilliantly twinkles like a welcoming beacon to all of its visitors and guests alike. Considering its location, everything you could imagine is within reach just steps from the marble-floored lobby. From classic Fremont Street amusements, hotels, shops, and restaurants to the Strip and Downtown Express bus systems, you have a number of options with the Four Queens as home base.And while you're not out exploring the delights of Sin City, you will undoubtedly find yourself entertained somewhere within the Four Queens. The 32,000-square-foot casino floor at the hotel includes a Keno lounge, a massive mix of table games as well as slot and video poker machines, which run the gamut and are regularly updated to reflect the latest trends. And for the sports fans, the hotel's Race and Sports Book offers bar style seating while onlookers watch the game on one of the 42-inch flat screen TVs.When you're ready for a drink (or three!) there are several bars located throughout the casino while the largest bar – the Patio Bar – is located just outside of the main entrance in addition to smaller bars at the east and west entrances. Needless to say… you will be well hydrated regardless of where you enter or roam within the hotel.When hunger strikes the Four Queens has you covered. For an intimate private dining experience, step into Hugo's Cellar -- this gourmet restaurant opened with the resort and consistently tops locals' lists for the best gourmet meal. Offering patrons the chance to go back in time and enjoy impeccable service paired with a sumptuous menu boasting gourmet continental cuisine you are guaranteed a full belly and a good memory. And to add to the elegance of the deep red, brick walls and the table-side salad preparation, every woman is presented with a long-stemmed red rose.However, if you're looking for a quicker, less formal bite, 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. Or you can swing by the food court, which is home to Subway, Noble Roman's Pizza as well as Dreyer's Ice Cream.And in the middle of those options is the most recently opened  eatery, the Chicago Brewing Company. Along with handcrafted microbrews, you can tantalize your taste buds with a fresh-baked pizza or kick back for a smoke in the cigar lounge.For those interested in continuing the post-meal entertainment in the hotel, the Canyon Club showroom hosts comic magician Mike Hammer early in the evening as well as Steve Connolly, who impersonates Elvis in "Spirit of the King," later in the evening. With the oak décor, deep, stage-surrounding sofas, coffee tables and simple folding chairs, the ambiance alone makes for an intimate entertainment experience.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.

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.

You know that friend who’s really afraid of heights? Stratosphere is probably not the place to take them. But once you’ve ditched them in the casino, at the Level 8 Pool or the Tower Pizzeria & Creamery, let yourself enjoy the ride up to the biggest attraction at Stratosphere.At 1,149 feet, the Stratosphere Tower makes every other structure in the city awkwardly explain that they’re just cold or nervous. Since it extends to such a great height, it's visible from nearly every vantage point in Las Vegas. But those sights are nothing compared to the view from the top. In less than 40 seconds, high-speed elevators pull you upward like you’re already on a thrill ride. You can’t see out, which is probably a good thing since you wouldn’t want to be stuck in an elevator with the one person who couldn’t handle it. But thanks to the attentive and explanatory elevator operators, you’ll have plenty of information to take your mind off the fact that you’re shooting upward at 25 ft/s. (Yeah, we did math.)Once you get to the top, you’ve got lots of options depending on how intense you are. If you’re quite calm, Top of the World restaurant, one of Las Vegas' premier gourmet rooms serves sophisticated cuisine impeccably paired with wine and complemented by a 360-degree view of the city. The floor actually makes a complete rotation every 80 minutes. The place is so romantic they even offer special Proposal Packages. And for casual people who enjoy a cocktail, Level 107 Lounge overlooks Top of the World and Air Bar is literally the highest bar in Vegas. For people just slightly more daring, the Observation Deck offers indoor and outdoor viewing of Fabulous Las Vegas and is the perfect place to sit and wait for the friends you politely refer to as “adventurous” as they enjoy themselves.For some reason Stratosphere decided, “Hey, let’s put thrill rides on top of the tallest structure in the city. That’s a good idea.” So that’s exactly what they did. And it’s totally a good idea. There are currently four ways to test your resolve: X-Scream (A teeter totter that gets its jollies by dangling people off a building), Big Shot (A ride that takes you even higher into the air then drops you harder than a dubstep DJ drops the beat), Insanity (Like your childhood merry-go-round if it were jacked up on Four Loco and Spike TV), and SkyJump (It’s just jumping off the top of the building and trusting a cable to slow you down--because parachutes are for babies). We could give you warnings about trying these, but we can already tell that if you’re the type of person who’s already excited then nothing will talk you out of the ride. And you’re also probably the type of person whose main reason for not wanting to die is the fear of your family going through your stuff. But for the rest of who have self-control and a healthy fear response, Stratosphere also has more grounded appeal."Pin Up" is a sexy and sultry stage show starting Claire Sinclair and was choreographed by Lacey Schwimmer of "Dancing with the Stars." The Michael Jackson tribute show "MJ Live" also plays at the Stratosphere. Fellini's Ristorante Italiano Preparing excellent pasta and other Italian delights. Singing for your supper is all the rage at Roxy's Diner as the wait staff in this nostalgic restaurant often put on a show to accompany their old-fashioned home cooking. And McCall's Heartland Grill has a hearty mix of steak and seafood in a Midwestern-style restaurant.Add to all that The Buffet, the pool with poolside café, Roni Josef International Salon & Spa and Tower Shops with 32 stores that replicate street scenes from iconic shopping cities like Paris and New York and you can see that Stratosphere is much more than a tower. That said, the tower is still pretty awesome.Stratosphere is close enough that you can catch a cab or shuttle to the rest of the Strip (we don't recommend walking), when you’re finished surveying it from the observation deck of course. And complete enough that you won’t have to leave if you don’t want to. It may not be for the acrophobic, but Stratosphere, with everything it has to offer and the heights it reaches, is definitely for the people who want to push themselves a little and look over the edge at least once during their Vegas vacation.

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.
