|The Four Queens Hotel and Casino was
built in 1966 and lies in the middle of the
city center on Fremont Street. The hotel was named after the four daughters
of the owner and is considered to be the Grande Dame of the downtown casinos.
The old town district of New Orleans, The French Quarter, is meant to be
recalled in the hotel's decor.
In the entrance to the hotel encounter a wood-carved reception area,
gold-edged mirrors, storm lanterns, and many brass adornments. Among the
gastronomic possibilities are included the famous Hugo's Cellar as well as
many other restaurants and bars.
The 690 rooms and suites of the Four Queens are also outfitted in the New
Orleans style. These are furnished with Victorian canopy beds, brocade
hangings and dark, polished wood furniture.
Worthy of note in this hotel is of course also the casino. This offers what
is said to be the biggest gambling machine in the world, which is 10 feet
high and 20 feet wide. In addition, in this casino it is possible to relive
the days of Old Las Vegas. The casino offers its guests gaming machines that
take pennies and nickels.
