    Before the remodel, pretty much anyone in the world could take the elevator up and use the pool. Not sure if they have tightened up security since then.

    You have to have a key to use the pool. You can always wait for someone else to go in or come out though... They have never asked me for a key or ID for a towel. It was great up there this week. Hotter than Hades, and only about 10-15 people at a time, hardly any little rugrats either.

    yes we did stay there last july and had problems with our key so just went in when someone was leaving.

    pool was nice and clean and the little pool bar had really good frozen drinks at a good price.

    Wasn't there a post about some other casino/hotel being allowed to use the Plaza pool?

    yes don I think that was golden gate.

    I love downtown but booked fri-sat at the d and 4 nights at ballys for next week.

    I could just stay at the d the whole time as I really like downtown but the d pool is pretty crappy.

    I thought it was the 4 Queens that has an arrangement for guests to use the Plaza pool.

    I mentioned in my last trip report that Binion's pool had shut down. This is the pool that 4 Queens guests would normally use. I recall reading that other post and thinking it's a long ways to go for a quick dip in the pool. By the time you walked back from the Plaza in this heat wave, you'd want to go for another dip.

    you are right I think I did read it was 4 queens.

    I have the d booked for this sun-friday but considering changing to plaza just for the pretty nice pool.

    plaza would only be thirty bucks more for the 5 nights and last time staying at plaza self parking was a breeze compared to parking at the d

    although binion`s hotel is closed it is pretty lame that they even had to shut down the pool.
