    I did die and go to heaven at one of the few remaining lounge acts that defined and made Vegas great. The el Cortez has an intimate lounge, great drinks and an Elvis showman that had the depth and passion of The King. The show is followed by karaoke. Holy kitschy old school fun!!!

    I have never stayed here, but once won a hefty some (in my world) at the blackjack table. El Cortez will forever be a 5-star place in my book.

    First please allow me to qualify the five star rating. Did I give the El Cortez five stars because it is a world-class property with all mod cons? Not a chance but it is as old school Las Vegas as one can get, I mean two for one martinis at any casino bar from 5 to 7 PM every day. First built in 1941 and owned by Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel. Please note that I am not trying to glorify the past “mob” connection to the El Cortez, but if you want a taste of Las Vegas the way it was. Check out the El Cortez. Live it up, you are in Las Vegas for cryin’ out loud!

    The atmosphere in the Hotel is cool. On my recent visit to the El Cortez I was with friends singing Karaoke in the Parlor Lounge where they serve up some good drinks. The staff there are very friendly, and its nice that the bartenders are pretty quick in taking your drink order. The Hotel is a bit on the small side, but it definitely makes it easy to find someone when you've strayed away from the bunch. The property is well kept, and all the staff throughout the casino are nice and helpful. One of the members noticed i was looking for something, and asked if they could help point me in the right direction which was perfect because I was looking for the restroom.

    I had a good night singing karaoke, playing cheap slots, and hanging out in the downtown Vegas.

    El Cortez, which was built in 1941, is a little piece of Las Vegas history. It is the longest-running hotel and casino in the city and, due to its off-Strip location, is popular among the locals who would gladly trade the glitz and glam of more modern accommodations for this hotel's unique vibe (and cheaper prices!).
