El Cortez' Official Website
This is a Las Vegas real-deal, serious, downtown, hotel casino.  
"Downtown Las Vegas' premiere hotel-casino blending new Las Vegas attitude with the classic Las Vegas swagger. The El Cortez is the longest continuously running downtown hotel-casino in Las Vegas. In the heart of Las Vegas' Downtown Fremont East District, the El Cortez Hotel and Casino underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and now offers world-class dining, entertainment, and gaming all while honoring the glitz and glamour of vintage Las Vegas."
  • "Play Downtown, Stay Downtown.
    Located off the strip in the historic Downtown area, the El Cortez is the authentic Vegas experience that you have been craving."
  • "The El Cortez first opened its doors downtown in 1941, and was so successful that it attracted the attention of Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky, who bought the property. In 1963 it went from one ‘family’ to another, when Vegas icon Jackie Gaughan bought the El Cortez."
  • "There are two ways to experience Vegas. The classic Vegas of the Rat Pack and Fremont Street, and there’s the new Vegas of the Strip. When you stay at the El Cortez, you get the best of both worlds. The amenities and first-class treatment of the Vegas from the brochures, but you also get the authenticity of a true Downtown experience."

From YWS Architects.Com: "Finally, Downtown Las Vegas can claim “wow power” with the new El Cortez Cabana Suites. The El Cortez, downtown’s first resort that opened in 1941, is the first to go modern by completely renovating the former decaying Ogden House located across the street from the hotel at 651 East Ogden Avenue."
"Owner Kenny Epstein envisioned a complete overhaul of the decaying 102-room, dreary Ogden House that was built in the 1970s and he got it. Even Steve Wynn would be impressed. He wanted a vintage South Beach-style property, which YWS Architects and Denver-based interior designer Heather Hassan’s contemporary furnishings and finishes accomplished with the new 64-boutique suite resort."
El Cortez does not have a Las Vegas style buffet. The Main Street Station has a fine Buffet (Temporarily closed.)
