Play Downtown, Stay Downtown.
El Cortez Hotel and Casino is the longest continuously-running casino in Las Vegas. Located off the strip in the historic Downtown area, El Cortez is the authentic Vegas experience that you have been craving.
El Cortez first opened its doors downtown in 1941, and was so successful that it attracted the attention of Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky, who bought the property. In 1963 it went from one ‘family’ to another, when Vegas icon Jackie Gaughan bought El Cortez.
There are two ways to experience Vegas. The classic Vegas of the Rat Pack and Fremont Street, and there’s the new Vegas of the Strip. When you stay at El Cortez, you get the best of both worlds. The amenities and first-class treatment of the Vegas from the brochures, but you also get the authenticity of a true Downtown experience.
Downtown Las Vegas is the Vegas experience you’ve been waiting for. In the 2014 Best of Las Vegas, El Cortez was voted Best Locals Hotel. And who would know better than the locals? Excitement, adventure, and entertainment all come together at El Cortez Hotel & Casino. We offer an array of suites and rooms that fit your style… and ours.
Each room is charged an Amenity Fee. The Amenities Fee is $10.95 plus tax (total $12.37), per day.
