About El Cortez Hotel and Casino

Classic Vegas meets modern urban chic in Fremont East

Vintage Las Vegas
Opened in the 1940s by "Bugsy" Siegel, El Cortez Hotel and Casino is classic Vegas. You're 2 blocks from the lights, glamour, and entertainment of the Fremont Street Experience.

Fremont's cool East End
El Cortez is located in the hip Fremont East District in downtown Vegas. The Emergency Arts Building is across the street with an arts gallery and The Beat Coffee Shop. You can learn more about Vegas' shady past at the Mob Museum, about 4 blocks away.

24-hour dining
El Cortez is vintage Vegas, and you'll see it in the classic casino. It might have you channeling your inner Rat Packer when ordering specialty martinis in the Parlour Bar. If you're ready to venture out, you'll appreciate the free parking.

Best hotel in Vegas
We have stayed at MGM, hooters, golden nugget at mote carp, best value for money and least resort fee - We missed our flight and had to book an additional room - we had a great, clean room and had a few drinks at the bar opposite the reception with an amazing customer service - great cocktails and lovely personality barman couldn’t recommend more, we will be staying here again!!!

Okay and interesting location
Overall the location was in the heart of party zone - Fremont Experience, this in itself is an experience. There are many Casinos around the area and therefore we had a choice along with some food outlets. We were advised that locally is safe but outskirts was not and therefore best to take a taxi, Uber or Deuce Bus ($6 for 2hours, $8 for 24 hours or $20 for 72 hours). The buses were easy to use and very frequent. The room itself could do with more lighting as it was fairly dark and the you could hear the noise from the street howeber it was cleaned daily. The Casino was okay and with options of gaming. Don't have the coffee as it is continuously weak and for an extra $2 you can get a Starbucks down the road. Hotel staff were pleasant with the odd unhelpful person. Transfers to the airport can be arranged but you have to book it it is limited to 5 people at a go and they do offer it hourly from 6am to 2pm. Unfortunately, I was a bit late and therefore could not use this service.

Avoid the vintage rooms
The staff were pleasant and the location is good (downtown but not right in the middle of downtown were it can be very loud). My room (vintage room) smelt like a casino (i.e. stale smoke and the cleaning agents typically used to cover up stale smoke) which is annoying as it was a 'non-smoking room'. It was hard to breathe at times and I had nosebleeds. The hallway was worse. I don't recommend the vintage rooms at all if you are a non-smoker or someone bothered by chemical smells or particulates.
