    Hey All,

    I kinda posted a similar request a while back BUT here are some additions.

    **First**

    We really, really like the El Cortez but want to venture out if possible.

    There are some stipulations to this "venturing out" business.


    **Second**

    When you post a downtown casino to stay at...PLEASE post; the casino, the floor or area to stay or stay away from at the casino, if possible a room number.

    **Third**

    What we're(wife and myself) looking for; Some place different than the El Co on Fremont. BUT...not the noise from Fremont street.

    When we're awake, Fremont street is fine...to visit and pass through when we go to different casinos. We would like NOT to hear the BUMP, BUMP, THUMP, THUMP, of Fremont when we want to go to sleep.

    What I would like is to try a different casino downtown...WITHOUT my wife waking up at 2:00a.m. telling me we should have stayed at the El Co because of the noise!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Main Street Station, The Plaza, and the California are a NO...the boss lady told me so!!!:nono:


    Soooo, is it possible to enjoy a Fremont Street casino with a peaceful nights sleep???!!!

    If so, please post the casino, floor, location of room(far North, South,..etc/side) even the room. Room...nice but not a suite...double bed.....my wife wants a peacful vacation from my snoring also.


    Nothing on the strip, of anywhere else in Vegas....just Fremont.


    I have been going to Youtube and lookin at rooms and reviews but want my fellow Vegas Forum members to help me. You guys and gals are a Vegas treasure!!!!

    Thank you for your help!!!

    Would suggest the Carson Tower (South Tower) at Golden Nugget---any floor. Stayed there repeatedly, never heard Fremont Street music. Also rooms are quite nice, but not luxurious.

    I know you said MSS is a NO, but a high floor with an odd, low numbered, room #, gets you away from the trains and most freeway noise. Like a 1501.

    Unless she is a total light sleeper, then just stay away from MSS.

    Golden Nugget Rush Tower

    I've stayed in the Rush tower at the Golden Nugget the last few trips and have never heard a peep from Fremont St. As mentioned before, the Rush tower also has great blackout drapes so the room is pitch black any time you need a rest.

    Would 2nd those calls. Otherwise you rally dont have much of an option. Is the Gold Spike a consideration, if the other 2 arent an option??

    Just for an alternative, the south tower of the Four Queens is away from the street and quiet.

    Even in the north tower, which is adjacent to Fremont Street, the odd numbered rooms face away from the street and are surprisingly quiet, but the south rooms are more spacious and nicer, overall.

    you want a place like El Cortez ? but in a different hotel ???

    why not book El Cortez Cabana Suites ...right across the street from El Cortez main casino.

    I think the JR deluxe suites are going for a good rate right now

    We stayed at the Rush Tower in August and the first night we got blasted by the FSE, we moved to pool side room the next day and we got the bass thump from the pool system. Third night we moved to the Gold tower, no view but no noise either.

    If the pool is closed when you go, then I would highly recommend the Rush tower on the pool side.

    I stay at the Fremont... usually on the 5th or 6th floor...and I've never had a noise problem... I think my last room number was 625...more to the north, facing Second St.... pretty much straight up from the elevators across from the registration desk.

    PS - you do not want the Golden Gate... great casino & great 'old hotel' charm to the place (and extremely comfortable beds!), but you will definitely hear the 'Bump-Bump, Thump-Thump' of FSE music.
     
    Finally have the room booked! Look for me Feb 21-23

    I too stay at Fremont and have never had a noise problem. At check-in, I simply request a quiet room away from the Fremont Experience, and the desk clerk has always been accomodating.

    Unless you're in one of their suites. We had the quietest room EVER last week. It overlooked the back parking lot but was absolutely quiet. But you're right, their regular rooms are very loud.

    Cohiba, try the south tower at the Plaza. We haven't had any noise issues there.

    We have stayed in the penthouses there, but I'm sure there would be little to no noise from Fremont on other floors too.

    I recommend the GN's Gold Club rooms in the Gold Tower. Terrific rooms, VIP check-in and no street noise.

    I was very surprised at how quiet it has been at the Gold Spike on Ogden. You are a block north of Fremont so it is an easy walk, lots of people and security and I think it is very convenient to everything. I do enjoy the comfort of the El Cortez and was quite pleased with both the Vintage Rooms (noisy), small and just one queen bed, and, the Tower Rooms, my choice with a king or twin queens. Comfortable and quiet but lots of doors slamming it seemed. Unfortunately, I like to stay beyond their 7 day limit without penalties.

    I have stayed at the Gold Spike 3 times, 2nd floor,6th floor and dont remember the other one. None had a view which I could not care less about but all were clean, comfortable and very quiet. I hardly heard anyone coming or going, doors slamming or noise in the halls or outside,even though one or two of the stays was during a NASCAR race. On the negative side was that the blinds don't block out all the light so the room isn't pitch black at night, and the room is Vintage Room size and has only 1 queen bed. Among the advantages are a good restaurant for a decent breakfast or lunch, friendly staff, and great prices even with taxes and resort fees. My reservation in january is for 8 nights including one full weekend for $252.56 with tax and resort fee included. For me a room is where you hang up your clothes, shower and sleep. You are minutes from all the restaurants that you will need as well as casinos, transportation and retail stores. For many, rooms have a greater place in your vacation experience but for me if i cant have a Tower Room at EC, I'm fine at the Gold Spike. Would love to try the Lady Luck, excuse me, Downtown Grand, if they ever open.
