Is there a way to book quiet room at Four Queens?

    Hi everyone, I heard that the only quiet rooms at Four Queens are the ones facing south. Even South Tower rooms facing north are reported to be noisy when stage is on.
    Is there a way to guarantee quiet room at time of booking or the gambling starts at check in?
    Thank you.

    It's always at check-in in my experience at the 4 Queens and the D. Be there early and maybe offer to wait for a quieter room that isn't cleaned yet if necessary? Because of no bands, the rooms weren't really that loud for the past year, but I suspect that won't be the case much longer.

    I gave up on Four Queens after Fremont added the Binion’s stage. I asked politely for a quiet room in the South tower at check in, the clerk said sorry and gave me a corner suite about fourteen floors above Fremont. It didn’t help.

    Request a room on the quiet side, low floor (floor 2, 3 or 4 is best). You'll be stuck with two queens since the kings all face the loud side. Your view will be awful (parking garage and roof of building) but it's relatively quiet. Added bonus of not wasting time making multiple stops on way up/down the elevators

    Good to know. Does it mean ALL two queens face the quiet side or they can face either way? Let's say I book South Tower 2 queens, does it guarantee quiet side?

    I'm not sure if all two queens face quiet or just some of them. The front desk agents seem pretty knowledgeable about the rooms IME so ask at check-in. I've never been given a loud room after requesting a quiet one.

    Thanks, I'm going to try that my next stay in July. Quiet is all I care about. View is not important to me.

    I've always booked South Tower 2 queens and asked at check in for a quiet room facing away from Fremont Street, but one time I got a South Tower 2 queens that faced north when all the south facing rooms were sold out. So in short, a 2 queens room in south tower helps but doesn't guarantee a quiet room.

    If you book through a host, a quiet room can be blocked off for you. Paul was able to do that for me

    Thank you for a tip but I never had a host. I used to be a Sapphire (500pt/day) but lost even mail offers (due to COVID inactivity) few months ago. I was thinking about booking few nights at casino rates and try to backcomp them as I expect to play a little more with Summer promo.
    Do you think it makes sense to email Paul and ask him to block off a quiet room? Will he be willing to deal with ex-Sapphire?

    Honestly, I do not know. It I were in your shoes, I would just try at the front desk -- holding a $10 bill in my hand. . . .

    What's the reason behind low floor? Another building blocking sound?

    Parking garage and casino building structure seem to absorb a lot of the sound on the backside of the building.

    I may be in the minority here but I haven’t had a loud room yet at 4queens. Then again, I use the golden gate room as a comparison and when comparing any room to golden gate, all rooms seem pretty quiet. Plus, I usually sleep with the tv on.

    Even a north facing 4Q south tower room is one of the quieter rooms on FSE.

    Of the room I've stayed in downtown, here is my subjective rank in term of noise (most noisy to least):

    The D >> the Cal > Downtown Grand (Grand Tower) = 4Q (south tower facing north) > 4Q (south tower facing south) > GG (inside room no window).

    I always ask for quiet rooms upon check in.

    You can try the back end comp, but one of the few bad things about the 4Q, is they expect 800 point days to comp a room. That’s $6,400 coin in on their JOB machines, and a bunch more on their other good return VP. Doesn’t make sense, but I normally just book the three days of my offers.

    I just got back from staying at the Four Queens this week. Quietest I've ever heard the rooms. They are all usually noisy downtown, and even the "quiet" rooms are wall-poundingly, window-rattlingly loud. Once the damned bands start up again, though, there is no quiet to be found downtown.

    We will be at 4Q on a Monday and Tuesday in June. We do have a King room booked. I don’t think we will have to worry about noise, will we?

    One thing you do want to do is check the schedule at the Downtown Events Center. If they have a concert, it will be shaking the south facing rooms. They just announced the first show for early July.
