4.5 Mediocre
Cons:Clean up the rooms better
3.4 Poor
Pros:The housekeeping staff did a good job restocking the room each day.
Cons:I booked online, and was offered an upgrade to a "Cabana Suite" for a holiday weekend. Mia culpa, I did not do extensive research since I know that a cabana is usually poolside and a suite is usually a large hotel room with a sitting area as well as a sleeping area. The El Cortez Cabana Suites are neither. It's an older looking motel that has had the name El Cortez slapped on it. My room was no more than a Motel 6 hotel room: a king bed, a chair, a desk with one of those metal-and-vinyl chairs you see in schools or churches, a dresser that you couldn't access because the mini fridge prevented the sliding doors from opening on one side (where the drawers were). The bathroom did have a nice shower, as some pointed out, but the location was behind the parking structure for the actual El Cortez Hotel. There was a security guard outside the door because the neighborhood was more than a tad sketchy. We couldn't have guests without coming to the lobby to open the door for them - they wouldn't buzz in our friends. When checking in (with bags in hand) they made me fish out my room key before buzzing me into the lobby; it was not very welcoming. Yes, there is candy on the lobby desk, but the person sitting at the desk almost didn't smile once in three days. Often at night it was a security guard talking on her phone with friends and didn't even look up to acknowledge us. I felt cheated out of a promise made by the name of the hotel - if you're going to offer someone who starts to book a room in the casino tower a "cabana suite" as an alternative, then it better have a pool or be an actual suite. A renovated Super 8 Motel is NOT what I think of when I read "El Cortez Cabana Suites". Had this hotel been $50 a night, I would have been tipped off, but at almost $200 a night for the holiday weekend (including their nightly "Resort Fee"), I was expecting MUCH more.
6.8 Okay
Pros:Staff nice, free shuttle to airport, easy to navigate
Cons:Air conditioner was weak, room stayed too warm to sleep until middle of the night, could hear music until 5 am
8.8 Great
Cons:Enjoyed my stay.
8.5 Great
Cons:Room could be cleaner. AC needed to be cleaned as well.
2.8 Bad
Pros:That I had a roof over my head
Cons:Honestly everything
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The location, good place near Fremont Street
7.4 Good
Cons:The air conditioning is poor. During the day the room becomes uncomfortable and at night it’s okay
8.2 Great
Pros:Low room & resort fee price. Free parking, secure building, surrounding neighborhood has gotten better.
Cons:I missed having a microwave in the room (was expecting one). No popcorn at night.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:The Retro Style Rooms in the Cabanas. Personal touch and it just set the mood for Vegas

FAQs when booking at El Cortez Hotel and Casino

  • Guests at the El Cortez Hotel and Casino are welcome to enjoy live music throughout the weekend. Several bands play at the Parlour Bar on Fridays and Saturdays from 8:30 am to 12:30 am, and the Lobby Bar hosts piano music by Ray Horvath on both days from 4:00 to 9:00 pm. Watching these performances is completely free, and visitors can take advantage of drink deals.

  • The El Cortez Hotel and Casino offers a diverse selection of games. Guests can choose from 3-card poker, blackjack, craps, Texas Hold ‘Em, and roulette. Once you arrive at the hotel and start playing in the casino, you can sign up for the free rewards program, known as Club Cortez, which will give you many benefits, including free plays on slot machines, monthly cash drawings, and access to VIP events.

  • There are always deals offered through the El Cortez Hotel and Casino, whether it be special holiday discounts, monthly giveaways, or reduced prices in the on-site restaurants and bars. Past examples have included perks such as free draft beer for dads during Father’s Day weekend, $5 margaritas at any hotel bar, and discounts during hockey games, like 2 for 1 cocktails and half off pints. If you win a jackpot in the casino of $25 or more, you may also be eligible to receive a free ice cream.

  • If you enjoy art and want to see a unique side of Las Vegas, head to DTLV Art Walk, an attraction that is only a 5m drive from the El Cortez Hotel and Casino and will provide you with street art tours. To see a concert during your trip, make sure to pay a visit to the Fremont Country Club, a spacious yet charming venue that can be reached by car from the hotel in 7m.

  • For guests that will have a lot of luggage or just simply want to go from McCarran International Airport to the El Cortez Hotel and Casino as quickly as possible, it is best to take a taxi. The drive will last between 15 to 20m if there is no additional traffic, and a ridesharing service will cost approximately $20 to $25 for a one-way trip in a standard vehicle, or $40 to $50 for a larger car that can fit between 4 to 6 passengers, such as a sedan or SUV. If you would like to travel on a budget, consider using the local public transportation system instead, like the WAX bus. Doing this will take you around 40m, and a ticket will cost $2 per person for a single fare. (Prices checked 12/06/19).
