The Fremont Experience ... Aargh!

Thinking of staying in downtown Las Vegas? Take my advice: Make sure your room is high up there.

See, the higher you are, the more muted the sounds from the street are. You don't want to hear Queen singing "We Are the Champions" over and over again through 220 speakers with more than a half-million watts of amplification.
And it happens every hour on the hour, from 6 p.m. to midnight, night after night, after night, interfering with your sleep every night, especially the night before your early-morning bag pull and/or wake-up.
For the first time in many years, I stayed at the Fremont so I'd be close to all the downtown casinos. I'll never stay there again because I GOT NO SLEEP!
Awrightie then … for the record, here’s what my teeny room looked like, and my window view through the wooden louvers:

And that's about the size of it.

So, pretty much this last trip was just a bummer! So sorry!

That's just the way it goes, Carolyn. But I did have some good dining experiences, and I did see some good street performers.
