I was charged money I was told I wouldn't have to pay. resort fee.

My experience at El Cortez was phenomenal. From the moment I stepped in to the moment I left. I was given a room upgrade upon my arrival and that just made everything perfect! My room was nice and cleaned the 3 nights I stayed there. The only thing I did not like was that the two water bottles provided each day were small sized. They could have been at least regular sized water bottles. Besides that everything was perfect! I will definitely be coming back to this hotel!

The check-in and checkout process takes over 45 minutes. Two staff at the desk and 1 is stuck answering phones. Hotel lobby allows smoking which makes your room smell like a smoking room. The price you pay on Orbitz is not at all close to what you will end up paying, the hotel tax on a $15 a day fee I wish I would’ve known before booking otherwise I would have not chosen hotel. I feel that the fee represented on Orbitz Is a misrepresentation and a lie. Those cost should have been presented up front when booking. I will not stay at this hotel and I will not recommend it to anyone. Overall very dissatisfied

This is an historical venue as the oldest Casino in Las Vegas. It is just excellent, the staff are all great. Loved my time here and would certainly return here to this hotel on my next visit to Las Vegas

Very good location. Atmosphere is good and no complain

Hotel is located in down town Vegas. The price was the same at the hotel as I paid online and if you paid cash even cheaper. Rooms offered online are located in the old section of the hotel and there are no elevator access.

A relaxing place to stay. Refrigerator and coffee maker in room was an added plus. Nice view from balcony. Able to watch the mantis show at Container Park.

Rooms was very nice and spacious. The only issue was the whole time my ice machine on my level was broken the whole time. I had to go to another level to get ice.

Good location, had fun would stay there again. Next to Fremont street where I had enough fun never made it to the strip were I intended to go.

Right downtown, you can feel the history. Updated rooms with a view

It was good for the price, good location, dated but clean. The only real problem was the noise at night coming from the Fremont area. Noisy until 2 or 3 in the morning.

Nice hotel easy access to hwy and close to Fremont Street Experience

Awesome stay, would recommend to people with family's also, it's safe and secure
