Fremont Fanatic

The Tower rooms are larger and as nice as any in Vegas.For what it is worth, there are more security guards in and on the property than cocktail waitressess. There is no pool, but the room rate more than makes up for it. Highly recommend !

Try the Cafe food -- try sharing the fajitas -two cannot finish and the Rib Eye steak -- is the absolute finest ever.

great price for location

I was booked into the vintage part of the hotel & was impressed with the clasic style of furnishings in an "old" walk-up hotel which also provided all of the standard amenities such as internet access

Awesome Getaway

I had never stayed in Downtown Vegas before. The El Cortez was really cool. The room was huge, we had an excellent view from the 8th floor facing Las Vegas blvd. The staff was friendly. I did get the Fremont Experience, more than once it was so neat. Free concerts, vendors, impersonators, I liked way better than staying in the newer casinos. We stayed at the stratosphere the year before last and it was ok. But man the El Cortez was So much better than any other place I stayed in Vegas. Cheaper, Cleaner, more friendly. It's not a busy as the strip, you can do more and not feel closterfobic. There is a cool coffee shop across the street, must see their record collection.I had a great time.We stayed for 6 night and enjoyed myself a lot.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Go to Down Town Vegas and walk around. If you go to a time share..or are asked to go to one. Look for [...], he was awesome we got 8 free tickets and all kinds of stuff. He really blessed us and saved us some money.Plus Casino hop all around for fun book, which saves you money on food and drink..Plus sign up for all the players clubs, you get free stuff at most.

Good for the price

Good for the price. Sad there was no pool to cool off in the 100+ degree heat. Just a short walk to Fremont Street Experience. Heard sirens all night long.

Need to rebuild the old quarters

The rooms with numbers like 5500 and up should be demolish, old, poor lighting, small, thermostat for AC only as a prop. Plenty of parking but no direct access to the hotel needs to use valet service all the time, staff super friendly. After a little complaining was given another room on the Towers very modern an on Impeccable shape. The person that saves this trip for being a total fiasco was [...] 2nd shift receptionist. Only way in is trough casino. The entire building smells like a giant ashtray even on the no smoking rooms(people are allow to smoke all over the place and the elevator shaft serve as a chimney bringing the smoke from the casino on 1st flr up to all other flrs. Location is on downtown LV about 3 miles from the strip and modern major casinos. Only 2 blocks away from Fremont St. No pool!!!!! You get what you pay for.

Three quite different price ranges for same food if you come in from the street or don't have enough points on your El Cortez Club card be prepare to pay same as on the strip. Use all the cupons given and you will save about $50.

Good deal

We were sceptical because of the unbelievably cheap price, but the idea is to get gamblers to casino. So, if you don't gamble, this is the best deal in Vegas. Located next to Fremont St. experience which is cool and inexpensive part of Vegas and you can take a bus to the strip right next to the hotel 24/7.

El Cortez Hotel (7/15-7/16/10)

The room looked old and needed a little touch-up, but it has the basics.
