    Will be coming last weekend of February...and staying Friday and Saturday nights downtown. Need some help from the experts on here to help on hotel decision. The D, Four Queens, Freemont and Plaza are all roughly the same price those nights. We are not picky travelers...just like a clean room and nice bed. Don't need a big room, won't use the pool or room service or spa or gym... and don't care about the casino or dining as we can go anywhere. So...based on just the rooms...whats the best choice?? Again...choices are The D, Four Queens, Freemont and Plaza.

    Thanks so much in advance!!

    I haven't stayed anywhere downtown except Plaza, but I can say both my wife and myself think they have some of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in. This is in the South tower. And I know you said you didn't care about big rooms, but the room was nice sized.

    I have only stayed at the D and Four Queens.

    The only negative about either place is the elevators. The D has a new "smart" elevator system which may be slow at peak times. The Four Queens elevators are just plain slow.

    Other than that, it would come down to price. Four Queens is the only one that doesn't charge a resort fee, but resort fee included, I believe that the room rates are comparable.

    I have stayed at 4Q a lot, once at Plaza. Given the recent remodel I would definitely say Plaza for room only. They even had bottled water which you could drink without a room charge.

    I had forgotten about the bottled water. Yes, you get 2 free bottles of water per night. We just put ice in the bucket and put them in there so we had cold water whenever we wanted. Also, free in-room Wi-Fi. As to the elevators as some have stated, the Plaza's are probably around normal to slightly faster.

    Have never stayed at the 4 Queens or the D. I suspect the rooms are decent at least. Have stayed at the Plaza and the Fremont and I would take the Fremont easily. Plaza rooms are nice since the remodel but I just find the Fremont to be a really comfortable place to stay. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Casino is OK. I vote for the Fremont.

    Thanks so much for the quick and helpful responses. We decided on The Plaza based on your advice. I'll try to post a review after the trip.

    Also note that Fremont doesn't charge a resort fee so while the rates may be similar you are probably adding $10 to $20 a night more depending where you are staying. That means that for a 5 night stay you may be paying $100+ more by staying at the D, $50+ more at the Plaza. Not sure if the 4queens charges a resort fee or a FSE fee (GN doesn't have a resort fee but has a nightly fee they say for the FSE).

    Great News on the selection! I think you made the right choice. The Plaza has remodeled rooms with the Fountaineblue furniture, and is a comfy bed as well. If you do decide to play there as well they have improved the VP tables a bit I've heard (going there this weekend) along with having Progressive DDB at the main bar and always a good slot selection and Craps pit.

    Enjoy the stay and best of luck!
