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

High-speed wired and wireless internet access are available so you can stay connected to the world while traveling.The D Las Vegas is home to the Longbar.

Flair bartenders serve an array of frozen drinks and specialty cocktails here. In addition, the Vue Bar on the property's second floor is the place to go for the best view of downtown's mesmerizing Viva Vision canopy.Eclectic entertainment is always on tap at the resort. You can get tickets to the interactive mystery dinner show "Marriage Can Be Murder" or the hilarious musical extravaganza led by Frankie Scinta.

Comedy magician Adam London and "Ja-Makin'-Me Laugh," a ventriloquism act starring Matilda and Patrick Murray, appear in the afternoons. Featuring fine food and service, Joe Vicari's Andiamo Italian Steakhouse on the second floor of The D Las Vegas offers expertly prepared steaks and homemade pasta in an elegant setting. A true dining gem -- where you can indulge in a five-star meal without the five-star price tag -- all of the dishes here are prepared from scratch daily using only the freshest ingredients. Among the items not to miss are the Andiamo Grande Meatball, the 32-ounce Andiamo Tomahawk rib eyesteak, the Pappardelle with Veal Ragu and the Cioppino alla Calabrese. Plus, the cannoli is to die for! For a more casual meal, step into the D Grill, where breakfast, lunch and dinner are dished up in generous portions. It's open 24 hours a day and every meal here -- from the fluffy Maui Pancakes and the Southern Herb-Fried Chicken to the Bananas Foster Bread Pudding -- is prepared from scratch. There's also a McDonald's on the premises. And The D Las Vegas has brought a Detroit hot dog legend to Sin City. American Coney Island now serves up Michigan's most famous Dearborn Sausage Company frankfurters -- complete with the secret recipe sauce!The casino at The D Las Vegas mixes modern and vintage atmospheres. You'll hear the hottest hits over the speaker system while playing the latest in slot machines and table games (some of which are hosted by the sizzling "Dancing Dealers") on the first floor. On the second floor, guests wanting a blast to the past will discover classic coin-operated machines and the beloved Sigma Derby, an electronic horse racing game.

The room was large, clean and well equipment. Good value for the price.
Casino was smoky and the dancers , well probably not needed.
HOWEVER, the old style slots were fun. Hearing the coins drop brought back fun memories. Contrary to their claim the slots are not so loose but won more hear than anywhere else. Would book again.

shuttels

do they have shuttles to and from the strip? if so what are the hours?
They do not but the DEUCE bus runs front very near the hotel to the strip and costs $7.00 for 24 hr pass. Excellent value. Used it often. The bus runs the full length of the strip. The bus to both outlet malls also is picked up very near the hotel.
