Room at El Cortez, Las Vegas, NV

El Cortez Hotel Review

: Opened in 1943, this legendary casino enjoys the loyalty of its longtime regulars in a smoky atmosphere reminiscent of downtown's early days. The venerable property sits a couple of blocks east of the bustling Fremont Street Experience. Renovations have made it competitive in the downtown Las Vegas market. The rooms have been updated, and they are better than average for the area. The Flame Steakhouse is worth a visit, and Cafe Cortez serves up a 24-hour menu. Old timers hang out in the race and sports book or in the Celebrity Lounge to watch TV and relax over a beer or two. The complimentary parking ramp accommodates 400 cars. There is a free shuttle to the airport for hotel guests.
