Las Vegas History Series - Four Queens Hotel & Casino
Construction on what would become the Four Queens Hotel & Casino began in late 1964. The construction would take close to eighteen months and on June 2 of 1966, the same day the Surveyor 1spacecraft became the first American spacecraft to land on the moon, the Four Queens opened to great fanfare on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas.

The Four Queens, named for the four daughters of the builder Ben Goffstein, opened with 120 rooms and 20,000 sq ft of casino space. In 1976 the casino would go through an era of expansion eventually occupying the entire block bordered by Fremont Street, Casino Center, 3rd Street and Carson Avenue. The final expansion would increase the casino floor by over 50% to 33,000 square feet.

In 1972 the Four Queens was sold to the Elsinore Corporation and they would own the hotel until bankruptcy forced the sale of the hotel in 2003.

In the mid-1990's the Four Queens became a partner in the renovation of the downtown area and the creation of the Fremont Street Experience.
Make sure to visit Hugo's Cellar at the Four Queens.  The romantic setting is perfect for every occasion and ladies are greeted with a long-stemmed rose.  Hugo's Cellar brings "Old Vegas" class to the 21st-century world.

Now into its 50th year, the Four Queens has proven to be a major influence in the shaping of Downtown Las Vegas and has proven that it is indeed an icon of Downtown Las Vegas.
