Worse weekend ever to stay at El Cortez. Evidently, there was some damn punk rock convention downtown over this Memorial Day weekend. Music so loud it rattled the 14th floor where we stayed at. I asked the front desk about it...they said "you come down here & buy ear plugs"...worst customer service ever. Room was average. Bathroom was sub-par..had to... More

We had made plans to visit the Las Vegas area and stay a week in a timeshare. However, our flight plans changed and we had a one day extension before staying at our designated timeshare. I did a search and found the El Cortez Hotel & Casino located on the original Las Vegas Strip. Our stay there was a wonderful... More

It was easy to find and get to, even with heavy downtown traffic. The parking garage was pretty full, so I had to drive around the garage for a bit before finding a parking place. Check in was easy. I booked through an on-line booking service, and got a very good deal once I used my points. However, while the... More

I Really liked Downtown Las Vegas. That's starting to Change ! The employees dont try to make you feel important anymore. Many are rude and or Grouchy. After a decent tip at least the cocktail waitresses were still nice and showed up often mostly at the Four Queens.The staff at the El Cortez where we stayed were a bunch of... More

It isn't quite the lap of luxury, and it's anything but new, but it's decent and clean -- a better value in Vegas is not to be found. The casino was fun too, again not the fanciest, but single-deck blackjack, $2 roulette tables, tons of penny slots with progressive jackpots -- I had a blast! The entire place is almost... More

We booked the El Cortez because it was relatively cheap and had a low daily resort fee, plus the reviews on TA were mainly good. When you first walk into the casino, you are immediately struck by the pungent smell of cigarettes mixed with some kind of carpet cleaner or air freshener. Its unavoidable in practically all casinos, but for... More

Julie at checkin was such a treat and started our weekend off with a smile. Every person at the café was AMAZING to match the food! Our room was huge, clean with wonderful linens. The a/c kept up with our preferred room temperature too!

Probably the cheapest rates you'll find in downtown Vegas and like they say, you get what you pay for but that's ok for the price. Room was comfortable although I was a bit surprised to find a threadbare couch and rust on both the sink & bathtub drains. Front desk employees went out of their way to be helpful. Casino... More

For this booking, I was on a business trip and I was by myself. I figured I would book at a hotel in downtown to try it out while I was in Vegas solo. I go to Vegas many times a year, but usually it's with friends and the rooms are on the strip. I booked a cabana suite, which... More
