I am heading west in 3 weeks and me and my college buddy will be spending our stay at the Four Queens. I picked that location for a number of reasons. First for me (my college buddy really done'st care where we stay) is location this trip. I have been to vegas now this being my 8th time. In all of the previous stays it's always been either on the strip (Stardust/IP/Westward Ho) or off strip at the Orleans. This time I wanted to expereince staying downtown. Second came cost. If I can find a hotel that doesn't charge a resort fee I will pick it unless it's a down right dump which isn't the case with the 4 Queens. Overall if I can find a place to sleep and clean up then I am good with it...but I have wondered what other criteria others use when picking where to stay.
