When I got there they had given away my room and I ended up in a building across the street called the cabana. I walked into the room it was green and dark. Black carpet. No plugs for phones or iPads. Bathroom was dirty around the toilet. Water pressure was so low it was so ridiculous to take a shower.

El Cortez is a cool downtown hotel. Room in the tower was very newly remodeled. Restaurants were good and reasonable. The gaming was generous. Place was clean. Ditch the hassle of the strip. El Cortez is downtown hip.

Room was non smoking . Smelled like smoke . Got turned away at cafe after waiting for up to 10 min . Said I could not where a tank top. Was treated like I was homeless. It is not a 5 star Restaurant. I observed other patrons wearing Tanktops. It was vary hot that morning . Very Embarrassing getting turned away , just to eat in a downtown cafe on Fremont . So I will never stay there again . I have had lots of Family stay there and spend their hard Earned money for well over 40 years .

The premium tower room updates are fabulous. Very clean and stylish. Had a couple issues with power going out briefly, fire drill, TV not working then TV coming on in the middle of the night (ghost??) And then there's the 'guests' across the hall fighting and yelling on and off for hours. Security eventually made them leave, yay but I was tired for my early flight out the next morning. The front desk assured me thats uncommon in their premium rooms and took care of the charge for that night. I would definitely and will be back to this hotel. I'm not much of a gambler so I cant give much feedback on the casino other than I only got 1 free drink and had to pay for the drink I ordered while playing at the bar.
