Budget-conscious travelers love 4 Queens for being a stalwart champion of value in a city that seems to be moving away from it.
With hotel rooms already on the low end of the price spectrum, 4 Queens doubles down by being one of the last remaining Las Vegas resorts without a resort fee.
In addition to being known as a bastion of value for those watching their wallets, the property remains popular due to its vintage feel, location, and activities offered.
Things To Do at 4 Queens
Play Silver Strike: Among the last 2 Las Vegas casinos that offer Silver Strike slot games (Red Rock and Plaza being the others), 4 Queens has the largest selection of machines with 12 in operation on my last visit.
For those unaware, Silver Strike slot games kick out a collectible Silver Strike token when the Silver Strike icon aligns with the pay line. Those tokens at 4 Queens carry either a $10 or $40 face value redeemable for cash, but I can’t bring myself to cash them in.
Grab a drink with a view: People-watching ranks among my favorite things to do at 4 Queens. The collection of humanity that moves up and down Fremont Street is akin to a train wreck that’s difficult to look away from.
4 Queens’ Patio Bar offers guests access to the cocktail of their choice with a view of the crowd milling past. The bar wraps around the exterior of 4 Queens which can offer great views of the 3rd Street live entertainment stage.
Craft brews at reasonable prices: Chicago Brewing Company serves a lineup of craft beer and food at palatable prices. View Chicago Brewing’s full menu.
Grab a bite: In addition to Chicago Brewing, there are a couple of other options at 4 Queens that may be of interest.
Hugo’s Cellar is among the best steakhouses in downtown Las Vegas. Providing an old-school vibe, Hugo’s is the perfect date night destination, and ladies are even presented with a complimentary red rose. If you are looking for a great steak, it’s difficult to go wrong at Hugo’s Cellar.
You can expect to pay $60-$70 for a steak, which also comes with a salad prepared tableside.
Magnolia’s Veranda is a rock-solid option for those looking for a quality, no-frills meal at a good price. A hearty breakfast can be had for around $10 and most lunch/dinner entrees fall into the $10 – $20 range.

There is no shortage of activities near 4 Queens given the resort’s location in the middle of the Fremont Street Experience.
Of course, visitors will want to check Fremont Street’s live music calendar which details bands that’ll be performing on their 3 stages. Ensure you stick around for a few Viva Vision canopy light shows.
4 Queens doesn’t have an on-site swimming pool, although guests can access Binion’s rooftop option across the street. While the view from atop The Mint’s old tower is great, the pool isn’t anything special.
The Mob Museum is just a couple blocks away from 4 Queens and is jam-packed with information about the Mob and their influence on Las Vegas.
Another museum attraction, The Neon Museum offers both daytime tours and evening displays that are well worth your time.
During the day, I’d recommend a guided tour as the additional context provided by your guide makes the experience.
At night, check out The Neon Museum’s Jackpot! Brilliant show, which brings signs in their north gallery back to life with projection technology.
While I avoided it for years (due to a fear of heights), I finally took a rip on the SlotZilla Zipline’s upper zoomline and highly recommend the experience.
