We love the El Cortez. Smack dab in what's old and what's new in Vegas, it's got the best of both worlds downtown. Just a block or two from the Fremont Street Experience, it's also in the hip & trendy Fremont East district. Complete with retro neon Vegas signs dotting the streets, this area offers clubs and restaurants galore.
Our tower king room in the El Cortez was spacious and quiet. Large dresser, desk, sofa, table, chairs, and a vanity & sink outside the toilet/shower room. The room was clean and in good condition, if a bit dated. We didn't mind, as it just added to the retro Vegas experience.
The room rate was a fantastic value: $36 for a Sunday night in June, including tax and parking. We also stayed here in June, 2014 and our $40 tower king room included enough casino & restaurant extras to basically make our stay free.
While we enjoy the Strip, too, the value at the El Cortez can't be beat! We'll be back.More
