What a great place in the newest cool and hippest part of town...Fremont East, one very short block from The Duece pick up location. No scamming scum trying to get a few bucks off of people. Staff is great - stop by and say hello to Scott in the Parlor Bar. Check In was quick and easy. The Cafe was... More

Not sure where to start so I will start with the positives. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very close to the Freemont street experience. Okay, that's it! If you are younger this is not the place for you. I am near 60 and felt like a kid in the casino. Some of the staff were well past there prime... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at this hotel, in the Cabana suites, for my husband's birthday celebration. It was nice and quiet inside the hotel, beautiful décor all over. The room was small but beautiful, and was well equipped with everything (tv, refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer) so we were comfortable. It was a good deal, one block... More

The El Cortez is, in my opinion, the best casino in downtown Vegas, and I would also say it is one of the best Casinos in all of Vegas dollar for dollar. The El Cortez provides such a good value for Average Joe's like me. The Cortez actually makes you feel like your play is appreciated, even if you are... More

I stayed here during CES out of lack of choices. Rooms are dilapidated. none of the staff seems to happy or motivated. Crowd is definitely downscale. Next time I would spend a bit more and go for the D or Golden Nugget
