“Downtown is cleaning up, the strip has some competition!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2010

My husband booked us a Jr. Suite on a Saturday/Sunday night (as the strip was too expensive). I had seen other reviews and pictures online and I have to say there were very accurate.

The room was comfortable (closet and clothing storage space is limited) and the bed was very nice. The rooms are dark (suits me just fine) and the bathrooms have a spa like appearance (no tub).

There is a guard posted on the walkway to/from the main hotel but I never felt like he was necessary.

I loved the fresh fruit available in the lobby all day and the staff was very friendly and extremely excited about the hotel. One housekeepers told me all about the movie that was filmed there.

It was absolutely a great place to stay. The downtown area has definitely cleaned up and I have to say that I liked the El Cortez as much as any strip hotel.

Some people complained about the noise but the only noise I heard was street traffic - didn't even hear the shower in the adjoining rooms. One of the huge pluses was the fact that the Cabana and Suites have their own workout center in the building - for no additional charge (you won't find that on the strip). Our room also had a safe that was large enough to hold a 15.4" laptop and a mini fridge.

As others have mentioned, there is a hold on your credit card to guarantee that you do not smoke in the room.
