    I'm thinking about staying at the Four Queens or even the Fremont in August. Any idea on how cold the air conditioning is at those places? If they're no good I'll probably wind up at the D.

    I stayed at both those hotels this weekend when the temp was over 100. Four Queens AC worked well, Fremont never got cool enough for my comfort. I’d say the same about the temps on the casino floors at both properties too.

    I had one room at Fremont that would not cool down. I don't know why I did not call the front desk, but I didn't and was just uncomfortable the entire trip. That was one stay out of about 25.

    In both hotels, the air can be quite loud. I did a phone interview for my current job from my room at Four Queens. I had to turn it off so they would not hear it in the background.

    Sounds like Four Queens it is. I'm not worried about the sound, just don't want to get hot. Thanks for the info

    Four Queens works well in the summer. When they have the builiding set to heat in the winter I can't get the room cool enough. Thumbs up for summer but if you like a cold room pick somewhere else in the winter.

    I always worry about these old buildings with AC units that don't work well. The first time I went to Vegas I stayed at The STRAT and it never would get very cold. Haven't had that problem anywhere else ever since.

    I am planning (barring any changes in current situations) in a trip to Vegas DT July 6-9. I am booked in the DTG and will report back as to the AC. I like cold rooms. I'm not sure this will satisfy, but I'll report back my experience assuming I end up making the trip. (only 2 weeks!)

    The four queens has a building wide system set to cool or heat. The thermostat in the room regulates a damper regarding airflow. If you turn it cool in the summer you get full blast cooling and it keeps it very comfy. If you turn it cool in the winter you get less heat blowing in. If its not a cold day outside its not fun for those of us that truly like 67-68 degrees.

    I agree regarding noisy units at the Cal. I sleep through anything and the A/C unit there was well beyond "white noise".

    I think you'll like the AC there. I've stayed there a few years ago. If you could take pictures of the room I'd like to see what the condition of some of these rooms are in. The last time I stayed there it wasn't bad but the room had a few minor things wrong with it. Nothing that slowed my head down on the pillow. :)

    I will say no contest the coldest AC downtown in the El Cortez Cabana Super Suites. They have two units in one room. There have been several nights I could see my breath in there. Word to the wise, close the bathroom door if you don't want to step on tile that will freeze your feet. I low played them once and no longer get offers. They are quick to shut your offers down.

    I guess it depends on which room at the Fremont. Our A/C was very cold last August; however, the bathroom was tiny and disgusting.

    I was at FQ with temps over 112, Sunday and Monday. I actually had to raise the temp on the thermostat slightly. It was too cold for me at full blast. TheAC worked fine, no problems.

    I've never had a problem DT. Only stayed at 4Qs once, but it was summer and I'd recall if the AC didn't work. Otherwise I've been at Boyd properties, mainly MSS and Fremont the last 5-6 years. They have the wall units that are a little louder, but not bad. My only complaint would be having it on high in the evening and having to adjust down mid-nite. As far as cooling goes though, no complaints.
