    I will be staying at the Four Queens next month for a week in a basic room. Is there a area that I should ask and/is it worth trying the 20 trick to try for one an upgrade?

    The tower away from the Fremont Street Experience is a little quieter.

    Once, I attempted the $20 trick. The lady behind the counter shoved it back at me. She said something like, "we don't do that here!". She really seemed angry. Whatever.

    Another time, they put me in a suite for unknown reasons. Go figure.

    Anyway, I really enjoy the Four Queens, with it's great location and good gambling.

    I envy your week there!

    I'd ask for the South Tower. The rooms are a little larger and away from the FSE. The only upgrade they have is the Petite Suite and there aren't many so I doubt $20 will get you one.

    Another vote for the South Tower. I had always wanted to stay in the North one, because I thought it would be cool to be able to step out of the elevator, right onto Fremont St, basically. When I finally got a room there, I was really disappointed. Room was quite a bit smaller, and badly in need of an update. Many people complain of the noise in the North Tower, but the noise doesnt bother me because I am up till 3am or later anyway. South tower is handy to the parking garage also, and because I tend to come and go a lot in my car, that is the best for me. If you get stuck in the North Tower, you can always ask to move a couple days later. Then you can make up your mind which one you like best for your next trip.

    We were in the N. Tower in April, room 707. Smallish, basic, & outdated for sure, but clean.
    I think I would ask for the S. tower as well. The elevator still lands you in the casino... the place is not that big.

    Eat at Magnolia's.... 2 for 1 ACG.

    Good gambling on those penny slots near the car give away.,,, across the aisle from the car. Husband collected some nice tickets there. The machines are older, Triple Dollar, etc.

    Good gambling at 4 Queens!

    Stayed in both towers - the South Tower is a little nicer...so I vote for that. The North Tower isn't that bad and the noise from Fremont St wasn't an issue (and we had a room where we could see the bandstand). The live music stops at around midnight (I THINK), so that wasn't an issue.

    Thanks for all of the information.

    Make sure you ask for your funbook or whatever it's called....you get 10 or 20 free slot play which I quickly turned in to 60 bucks, cashed in and headed for tables!

    I prefer the South Tower too as the elevator is right near the front desk and the rooms are slighter larger and quieter (and a coffee maker w/free coffee in the room). The only drawback to the South Tower in my view is the lack of rooms with King beds. Most of the South Tower rooms are 2 Queen/Double Beds, so if you really want a room with a King bed then they are more plentiful in the North Tower.

    Love the 4 Queens for VP, it can't be beat. Progressive (even on 4OAK) 9/6 DDB at their bars, 10/7 BP on the floor and several $0.05 machines with good paytables nearby if you are an ultra-low roller. They even have VP at the Chicago Pizza Co bar that pays extra for a Royal based on suit (never seen that anywhere else).

    I have 2 free nights in August at 4Q, can't wait!

    Try to get a room at about the 5th or 6th floor at Four Queens, as close as possible facing the Golden Nugget. At that point, you can actually pick up the GN's Wi-Fi signal ... I've done that several times.

    I got a jucuzzi suite once using the $20 trick. I just asked the lady at the front desk if she had a room whith a big tub in the room and showed her the 2o and it dissappeared so fast it would make your head spin.LOL But it was a great room the tub was big enough for 4 people.

    The $20 trick typically works very well for me at the queens. Gotten petite suites, or a jacuzzi room.

    We are also staying at the 4 Queens in September. Where do they drop you off when you arrive at the hotel? I believe I read somewhere that you have to drag your luggage through the hotel to get to the check in desk. Have never stayed here but my husband likes downtown. Any Information about the hotel also would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    When you say "they drop you off", I assume you are referring to a taxi drop-off ??? If that's your situation, the taxi will pull in right on the east side of the Four Queens, and you will walk right in to the hotel registration area.
    For those people with a rental car, the garage entrance is on the south, back-side of the property, and you will also eventually come in near the hotel desk.

    The people that I see come in the front door area, and walk all the way through the casino, probably arrived by bus, and walked in from Fremont Street.

    I always arrive by shuttle, and they drop you off on the west side of the hotel, right by the check-in area. No dragging through the casino.

    I think you've love 4Q!

    Even If I have to drag "all the way" through a casino on fremont it is a treat compared to the strip hotels.

    you will enjoy 4 queens,have a great time.:beer:

    The petite suites with wet bar in south tower are quite nice. It has a king-size bed, refrigerator, safe, large bathroom, couch, chairs, and extra sink in wet bar. Also has coffeemaker and hair dryer.

    Think there's any chance of getting this without doing the $20 trick? We won't arrive until 10 PM and I'll be doing the $20 trick at the Mirage the next day and am not as worried about the room at the 4 Queens. But I feel like it might be worth a shot to ask!

    Let Us Know If It Works

    I've stayed at the Four Queens several times. It's not the sort of place where you see the $20 trick, so I'd be curious to see you post whether it succeeds. I've done it at strip hotels with fair success (always works at Bally's). I've asked about upgrades, and they quoted something ridiculous like $80 more a night.

    Why bother if you're only there one night? The biggest thing is to request a room in the south tower, south side, up and away from the elevators. North tower is right on Fremont Street. North side of south tower faces Fremont and has one of the band stages pretty close below (loud!). Low south tower rooms look into the parking garage. Floors aren't big, so there's a fair chance of being next to the elevator and having to listen to that all night unless you ask not to be.

    All that said, we've found them quite accommodating toward our location requests. We've gone to our room and returned to the desk, requesting a different one, on a couple of occasions. They've always made the change without a problem.

    The rooms are fine, but not fancy. Mattresses are new and comfortable, carpet is fairly new, and TVs have been upgraded to flat screens. Bathrooms, like everywhere downtown, are small but functional. I used to get comped for some of my time there, but I guess the economy is picking up and I'm now below the cutoff. The Plaza is now my first choice. Great rates and remodeled less than a year ago. Again, get south tower, south side, up, if you stay there.
