Vegas

El Cortez is in the downtown area of Vegas. It is a older hotel but a great staff makes it more fun. Lot of locals hang out there so there is always something going on that brings them in. It's right across the street from the Fremont main walkway, so your close to all of the other casinos but it is nice and quiet at the hotel at night.

Great way to do Vegas!

Old Las Vegas is crazy fun and this hotel is a great place to stay for the money. They even have karaoke in the bar on certain nights which was a lot of fun. The people are a little older who stay here, and it didn't seem like there were any kids around, but we had a great time. Be sure to check out First Fridays too!

Great location

I've stayed with El Cortez several times because I like the location on Freemont Street. I also stay in the vintage rooms as they are quick to get to the casino as well as the parking garage. That being said, they are old and the rooms lack certain things that you would expect, such as plug ins for your electronic devices. Bizzare how few plug ins they actually have. Front desk isn't always as organized as one might expect either. I won't go into it with this limited space. If you are NOT looking for luxury, then this place will do just fine. Don't set high expectations.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Hotel is a block from the bus system. Take "The Duece" bus. It travels up and down the strip and is cheap and quick transportation. 3 day pass is 20.00. You will never have to wait long for a bus either. Very organized!!

Great for business stays

I stayed at the Cortez for 6 nights. My stay in the towers was very relaxing. Quiet. And Private. Cortez is close enough to Fremont street and yet away from honky Tonk Only issue with hotel is it did not have the entertainment or food specials that is says on its outside signage

downtown location

Area still a little sketchy for walking back late night from fremont street. Loved container park!! Little market across the street was very convenient also. Loved that El Cortez has FREE shuttle to airport! Will stay again.

Fifth time staying

If you like old town and Freemont St this hotel is one block away. The rooms were clean and nicely remodeled. The only warning for handicapped travelers is that the vintage or oldest part of the hotel has no elevators. All the new sections are fully handicap accessible and room descriptions on line clearly state if the room is in the vintage section or the newer cabana areas.

One block from Freemont St about the only free attraction in Vegas. The area is well patrolled with shops casinos and restaurants.
