  • Generally a great hotel with an historic vibe (it's a renovated 1941 hotel from Vegas' early days, now listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It's very affordable for the quality of rooms which are good. It's well located in Las Vegas' burgeoning downtown, and there's a ton of great food options within a few minutes walk, as well as a few solid ones inside the front door, too. The hotel service desk varies a bit on quality from excellent to mediocre, but it is Nevada - the casino is the focus. This is my go to hotel whenever I'm visiting Vegas and I highly recommend it.
  • I have never stayed at El Cortez - my review is solely on the atmosphere and general public casino/bars/restaurants. El Cortez is a little slice of history! They really focus on it too, which is pretty awesome. Everytime we stop in at El Cortez for drinks the staff is always awesome. We've also stopped in the indulge in pizza from their pizza restaurant - pretty good and nicely priced! El Cortez seems to be pretty budget friendly all around - they constantly have $5 drink specials and their Parlour Bar has 2 for 1 drinks during two separate happy hours!
  • If anyone is looking for a great deal on hotels you can check it out on HotelRaven. com Booked a hotel on there and they had the cheapest rates around... Nice hotel within short walking distance to Fremont Street Experience. Stayed in a vintage room which was older but still decent. Stairs to get to vintage rooms are right inside the casino. Staff were all very friendly. They allowed us to check in early at 11:30. My husband just stayed here in March and was happy enough with it to stay again.
  • I love the El Cortez. It's the best locals casino in Vegas. The waitress's always make you feel like a part of the family. They joke around with you and are quick to bring your drinks

Where to stay in Las Vegas

Most Las Vegas hotels increase their room rates on the weekends, so if you have a flexible schedule, avoid Fridays and Saturdays and take advantage of package deals that include shows, meals, and gambling coupons. Remember also that if you stay at any one of the lively casino hotels, you may not be able to get a good night's sleep for the duration of your trip. If you come to Vegas to stay but not necessarily play, try one of the non-gaming hotels or explore the quieter areas surrounding the city.
