Have stayed at the El Cortez many times and plan on returning for March Madness 2015. The Tower Rooms are very spacious and the Cabana Suites are modern and very nice. Both Tower and Cabana rooms feature flat screen TVs and in room safe + maid service is usually excellent but my last stay (Dec 2014) my room was not... More

I spent another great two nights at the El Cortez. This time I paid a piddling extra amount to stay in one of their "tower rooms" after a not-so-pleasant experience in their pavilion rooms on a previous stay. The room was spacious. It had a nice flat-screen TV, a safe, a mini-fridge and decent furnishings. The only drawback was that... More

//We stayed in a Pavilion room (above the parking) for two nights. The room was mostly clean and the beds comfortable. The noise from Container Park ended shortly after 11pm each night, so no early to bed unless you have ear plugs. We could not use the Hotels free shuttle to the airport because it runs from 7am-2pm Sun-Fri, we... More

This old hotel definitely has some history – if you like old Vegas on a budget this is a fabulous place – I highly recommend the Cabana Suites - they have some reasonable food deals at the casino and amazingly for part of the day they had 25 cent roulette which was a lot of fun – my room had...

I stay and play at the El Cortez twice a year. With my players card, I avoid the resort fees and get additional benefits such as free food and lower room rates. Recently, the casino has also installed kiosks where you can spin for daily prizes (sometimes small) for putting 100 dollars a day through the slots. Last year, I... More

Stayed in this hotel last week. The room was booked for four people and the hotel confirmed this booking twice over the phone. However, when we arrived the hotel said we were only booked for two people and would have to pay an additional ten dollars per person per night, even after explaining the situation. When booking was also told... More

If you're looking for some nostalgic Las Vegas, stay at the El Cortez Hotel. This hotel was built in 1945 and Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel was one of several owners. From the exterior signage to the interior décor, you can feel the historical charm. There are many room options to choose from: Pavilion, Vintage (original rooms from the 1940s right above... More

I have stayed at many hotels in Vegas, but the deal we got at the Cortez was great! We spent 8 days there. It cost about $40 a day!!! The room was clean and well setup. The people friendly and the food good. We had to park across the street, but that was ok. We drove out to South Point... More

This was our second stay at the El Cortez. We were surprised to learn only at check-in that the El Cortez now charges a "resort fee". This is a newer-to-Las Vegas excuse for an up charge to accommodations with no benefits. The El Cortez is NOT a resort, and the front desk staffs' apathetic attitude will be your first indication...
