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.

Room was small and needs some attention. However for the price it was good.

So you're probably wondering...what does the "D" stand for?The resort's moniker, The D Las Vegas, pays tribute to its downtown location as well as to the Detroit roots of its owners, Derek (who is often called "D" by friends) and Greg Stevens. Among the things that make The D Las Vegas so cool is the way it melds the Motor City with Sin City.Although not specifically Detroit-themed, the Stevens brothers have persuaded a few Michigan-based businesses to set up shop at their resort. Take Joe Vicari's Andiamo Italian Steakhouse. This Detroit-area import is a true dining gem -- and you can indulge in a five-star meal here without the five-star price tag. All of the dishes are prepared from scratch daily. The Andiamo Grande Meatball and 32-ounce Andiamo Tomahawk ribeye steak are not to be missed, plus the cannoli is so good you'll leave the gun and take it.Known for serving hot dogs like no others you've had before, American Coney Island counts itself among the oldest businesses in Detroit -- and there's only one location outside of Michigan. Can you guess where that is? Positioned next to The D Las Vegas' east casino entrance on Fremont Street Experience, these specially seasoned wieners from The Dearborn Sausage Company are topped with a secret chili recipe that's three generations old.There are other nuances of Detroit at The D Las Vegas. Whenever the city's beloved teams -- the Tigers, Lions, Pistons and Red Wings -- play, you can expect to see the game broadcast at the Longbar, which is hailed as the longest watering hole in Nevada with 15 big flat-screen TVs lined up side by side. (And if any of those teams should make it to the championships, expect to find a party of epic proportions going on.)Actually the party spirit begins any time you approach The D Las Vegas. Outside on Fremont Street, you'll discover the modern-looking D Bar, where dancing girls in boots and fringed bikinis pour frozen alcohol-infused drinks into funny souvenir cups. Flair bartenders also flaunt their talents while mixing cocktails at the other end of the long counter.What else should you know about The D Las Vegas? Well, its showroom features some truly eclectic entertainment. Comedy magician Adam London and ventriloquism duo Patrick Murray and Matilda appear in the afternoons. You can get tickets to the interactive mystery dinner show "Marriage Can Be Murder" or the hilarious musical extravaganza "Frankie Scinta and The Scintas" in the evenings. (A little bit of trivia: The Scintas have a Michigan connection too. In their early days, they performed at Joe Vicari's Detroit restaurant.)The casino at The D Las Vegas mixes modern and vintage atmospheres. You'll hear dance-oriented music over the speaker system while playing the latest in slot machines and table games (some of which are manned by the sizzling "Dancing Dealers") on the first floor. On the second floor, it's a blast to the past. You'll discover discover classic coin-operated machines and the beloved Sigma Derby, an electronic horse racing game. The resort also houses a William Hill Sports Book.The D Las Vegas is located on Third Street between the Four Queens and Neonopolis. It's got a high-energy vibe -- one that reflects the energy of the revitalized downtown area. So we'd say the "D" really stands for "dynamic" or "dude, this is a fun and affordable place to stay."

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.
