We stayed for just a single night waiting for a flight. I chose this hotel due to its proximity to Fremont Street experience.

Newly renovated rooms are awesome. Self check in was easy and fast! Ordering food from the restaurants was quick and delicious. Great location.

Great place to stay as always staff always great.

Friendly staff and clean rooms.

I love the ELCortez. Staff rooms and gaming are always great. I will keep coming back

In a whole week neither won or saw anyone win anything. Smoking which is disgusting to have to be around. Bed hard as a rock and very uncomfortable. Thin window shades that let the light in so it was hard to stay asleep. Room safe was locked closed. No room service. No poker room. Only one three card table with no progressive. Only one texas holdem ultimate table which they let be reserved half the timr by one guy to make youtube videos of himself. It might be the oldest of the original casinos. But it's time to give it up and modernize or close it down.

Had to wait for our room wasn’t a big deal we went and eat. When we came back to check in they were able to find us a room right away. Cleaning service was very friendly. Room was always very clean. Casino was nice lots of room and different slots to play. The bell hop was very helpful he helped set up our trip to Hoover dam. Check out was easy and the shuttle to the airport was nice and easy to set up. I just wish their was shuttle to the hotel from the airport as well.

It was Justyna ok. The bed was extremely firm. The suite was just that it had a mini fridge nothing more. It was very clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The cigarette smoke in the casino was overwhelming. We played the 2 poker slots at the back door entrance so we could breath. Ate only at subway one time so cannot tell you about the other restaurants. Subway was great as usual.

My stay in a vintage room at the historic El Cortez was everything I hoped for. Amazing neon sign. I love to walk, so a great location. Friendly staff. Stay here if you want to feel a connection with the Vegas of old/lore. From now, this will be my go to hotel during my Vegas stop overs.

We love the El Cortez. The Fremont street experience is about the best party going in Las Vegas, and El Cortez is right there yet removed just enough to retain some level of quiet. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Exceeded our expectations. And the restaurant has good food, long hours, and friendly staff. For anyone who wants the fun of Las Vegas but gets annoyed with the frantic pace of the strip, I recommend El Cortez.

Stayed in the tower, nice but wish there had been a coffee maker in the room.

My husband was to stay there between flights. The orbitz description said there was a shuttle service. When my husband called the hotel from LAX to confirm the shuttle service he was told they could not pick him up or get him back to the airport in the morning to make his early flight. Taxis would have cost up to $100. So my husband stayed at the airport. We lost the money but didn’t spend twice as much for the taxi. Very disappointing. We chose the hotel because it had a shuttle.

Convenient location, parking & price for place to sleep over nite during a road trip.

The proper in itself is nice, but when it came to the pavilion room that we had it was terrible. After a long flight, that took longer than it was supposed to, I just wanted to relax. The room was freezing cold. So I adjusted the temperature, took a shower and went to the casino to play some penny slots, thinking the room should be nice and toasty once I get back up there! Unfortunately it was not. The room stayed like an icebox all night.

First room in years that didnt have a coffee pot but advertised free coffee in the morning. Walls are so thin you could hear nothing but doors slamming all the time. Room and bathroom were beautiful and spacious. Hotel staff was wonderful, bartenders most unwelcoming ever.

I like the casino area. What I didn’t like was the staff over charge us for the stay after I had paid Orbitz for the room!!! I had to bring up to their attention afterwards n they fixed it, but they need to be more careful when they are checking in the guest

Good place to stay
