El Cortez Hotel and Casino allows you to enjoy the historic Downtown area of the city at affordable rates. Although the hotel has been open since 1941, the longest continually operating gambling hall in town, they've gone through renovations to modernize their rooms with contemporary furniture and present-day amenities such as electronic device docking stations and plasma televisions. If you prefer the classic Las Vegas feel, they offer vintage rooms above the casino floor adorned in the decor of former owner and mob boss Bugsy Siegel's era. Inside the casino, be sure to join Club Cortez to receive free play, up to 75 percent in discounts and with enough points you may even earn a complimentary room.
