Thank you El Cortez for a fabulous stay. Every single employee went above and beyond for every single guest. Shout out to Mark at the Siegler’s restaurant and Max the bartender and a wonderful women who was working at the front desk I can’t believe I don’t remember her name. Also the kind gentleman who was working the elevators. We will never stay at another hotel again in the downtown area. El Cortez is absolutely the best.

This is a good go to for a low budget stay in Vegas. It's dated and musty but the staff is always friendly. Table stakes were $10 minimums which was disappointing as last year they were $5. Could use some more happy hour pricing
