This is my second time at El Cortez. Stayed in the cabana jr. Suite. It really isn't a suite, it has a couch in the room. The good: security, quiet, and a nice bathroom. However, there were some things that I didn't like. The room looks very nice in the I true, but once your there it really wasn't that... More

We stayed here over a Thursday and Friday nights. Its not a strip property so you need to understand that Fremont and its respective casino/hotels aren't going to have the same feel as those on the Strip itself. Downtown has its own appeal; some will like it, others will not. With that said I've been going to the El Cortez... More

Thank you very much for your feedback. Yes some weekends we do have more noise than others, usually safe from the noise in the towers facing North. We hope to have you back again! More

I really liked this hotel, its a classic Vegas property from 1941. They have various room options from small vintage rooms ($30 per night) to suites (more $). I stayed in the vintage rooms, good value for the money. The room could have used a flat screen tv, but the tube tv was large. There was a free coffee maker... More

The hotel is old and dingie and has a lot of penny slots.Use to go there for great steaks at the Flame Steakhouse and now they are out of touch.Use to a fair price when they needed customers but, now they think there --hit don't stink.Bad service and bad management still good food at a bad price.

Stayed here for 2 days and lived it, the Cabana suites which is located across the street is well worth the extra. Reception staff were great in the suites but the reception staff in the main hotel were not as efficient and really did not seem to know what they were doing. Long queue to check in. This still did... More

We were looking for something near Fremont St and decided on el Cortez, literally a block away. Only stayed for a night but it was well worth it. Extremely nice staff, the valet guys were excellent. The guy made small talk and took care of all of our luggage. The hotel is old and the room was a outdated but... More

What's not to like? The price is great and El Cortez sits in the hippest area of LV. We were in the Tower for 4 nights--a huge room, two large double beds with a sitting area, no problems with the room whatsoever. Sleeping was nice and quiet, but we were two blocks from the Fremont Street Experience and across the... More

Staff was very friendly and helpful. And the rooms were kept up and clean:-) And it's just a little walk of downtown Fremont street. And like having extra amenities like a small refrigerator and bottles of water.

We booked a Vintage Room for two nights. April 5-6, 2014. The room was fine. Clean and comfortable. It overlooked Fremont Street. We booked it through the hotel website.

I stayed at the hotel in the easter of 2013. It was very cheap for Vegas and the main reason for that is because it is located in the old part of Vegas, so if you're willing to be able to walk out of your room straight to the Vegas Strip, this is not a good option. For reserving online... More
