Fitzgerald's Rooms Question

We will be staying at Fitzgerald's Thanksgiving week. I was thinking of asking for an upgrade when we check in. I am wondering if they actually have rooms that are an upgrade, and if so, what are they like.

I'm not sure if they have upgrades at the Fitz. Make sure you ask for a corner room though. They're larger than the others and lots of windows. My daughter and her husband had one of these rooms last year and the view was awesome. I'll be sure to ask when I stay there again.

The best room "upgrade" for 4 Queens would be to walk across the street and get any room at Golden Nugget.

All of the rooms at GN are nicer than any of the rooms at 4 Queens and usually for not much more money.

I think of the 600 or so rooms at the Fitz only about 12 are suites and they never seem to have way to reserve them on their site , so I would assume they are for their "invited guests" only and are filled with high rollers who don't pay for them at all. I think the best you could do is try for a particular location, as I think all the other rooms are pretty much the same- though I think it is possible that some rooms may be a bit larger if they are an end room perhaps. Way back in the day, the Fitz was a high rise Holiday Inn , so the layout of the floors and the room sizes are pretty reminiscent of the ones all over the US that were built at that time - for while they have redone the inside of the rooms , I don't think they changed the structure in any way.

Thanks for the responses. I will ask for a corner room.

Hal, I appreciate that you took the time to read my thread, but I was talking about Fitzgerald's, which I happen to like, and not Four Queens or the Golden Nugget.

Oooops, my bad.

All the hotels downtown starting with "F" pretty much run together in my mind.

Stay at Golden Nugget anyway, its much nicer that ALL of those others.

Hal, one of these days I will stay at the Golden Nugget. My mother is coming with us this trip and she really likes Fitzgerald's. Besides, she has 3 nights free and I have 2 nights free and the other nights we are only paying $32 per night.

The Fitz is one of my favorite places to stay.

Hotel - Up until last year they had Club 21 rooms that were situated on floors 21 & 22. They offered 21 more ammenities than their standard rooms such as shoe shining machines, bottled water and paper every day and nightly turn down service... The corner rooms on these floors (2142 and 2242 are two that we stayed in) have huge jacuzzi tubs and two walls of windows that offer amazing views. My understanding is that although they're not called Club 21 rooms anymore - it's all still there so I would ask for something on either of those floors. Also any rooms higher up will offer some really nice views for you as the Fitz is the tallest hotel downtown.

Casino - the casino is small and clean. About two years ago the opened a small poker room on the second floor. They have lots of slot machines and VP - also a small table pit. Their pit folks are some of the friendliest I've ever met. Make sure you sign up for their players card - they're very liberal in comps and have two levels of members - general and Emerald Club.

Dining - their buffet is standard LV and has it's good times and bad. They have a nice steakhouse (used to be called Limerick's) on the second floor and that's a great place to eat. There's a McDonalds and Krispy Kreme on the first floor.

Have a great time!

I have stayed there twice and the rooms at the Fitz are nice and they have a deluxe room what was more recently updated for a few dollars more a night. These usually book right after the 3:00 check in time but the standard rooms are quite decent.

The Nugget is nice but it costs more. 4 Queens is recently updated but the rooms are smaller.

Here is my review of the Fitz with photos. It is from a few years ago but I was there in late August and stand by the review as being as true now in 2008 as then.
