El Cortez

El Cortez logo El Cortez The El Cortez prides itself on being "a family-run casino, unburdened by the trappings and constraints of corporate ownership." It's also one of the few casinos in Las Vegas to still offer coin-in slots. Open continuously since 1941, walking through the door is like stepping back in time. (The sports book is very contemporary, however.) Six different types of rooms are offered, from "Vintage" to "Designer Suites." The El Cortez also owns the separate-but-adjacent South Beach-style "Cabana Suites," with such modern niceties as iPod docking stations and a fitness center. There is only one restaurant, Bugsy's 41, open 24 hours.

Resort Fee - Mac Burns (09/24/2015) - 4.5 out of 5 stars
Customers Beware! The El Cortez has joined the Las Vegas "Rip-Off The Customer" list by charging a daily $8.95 so-called Resort Fee. Also, they have closed the reasonably price El Cortez café forcing their customers to eat in the much more "pricey" Siegel's 41 Restaurant. I would think that the late Mr. Jackie Gaughan, who always offered his customer's a "good deal and a good gamble" would be very much displeased to see what has happened at his El Cortez.
