Step back in time at the El Cortez, where you can experience the history, style and personal service standards of Old Vegas -- along with excellent dining, a bustling casino floor and an elegant bar.Opened in 1941, the El Cortez is the longest continuously running hotel/casino in Las Vegas. It has some notoriety being that Bugsy Siegel was among a group of men -- all with ties to the mob -- who owned the joint for a short time in the mid '40s. Today, the El Cortez is located in a revitalized area of downtown dubbed the Fremont East Entertainment District, where there is an active arts scene. Restored neon signs line the street in front of the property. Visitors are also just a short walk away from a handful of eclectic bars and the famous Fremont Street Experience attraction.In early 2013, the El Cortez became the only Las Vegas casino that's still standing to join the National Register of Historic Places. During recent years, the El Cortez has undergone a multimillion-dollar transformation. The property now offers a wide variety of rooms, most of which have been remodeled. Accommodations range from traditional and vintage rooms to Jacuzzi suites in either the main tower or the Pavilion. Guests looking for a more unique experience can choose one of  10 themed suites that resulted from the hotel's Design-A-Suite Downtown contest. And the El Cortez's Cabana Suites -- a South Beach-inspired boutique hotel -- has 64 chic rooms and a fitness center available just across the street.The resort's casino has long been popular with visitors and locals, thanks to the favorable odds and an array of promotions, like coupon books. There are more than 1,000 slot machines on the casino floor, including numerous coin-operated ones. The El Cortez has a keno lounge and a fine sports book that's affiliated with Station Casinos.To start your day off right, the Café Cortez provides tasty and affordable breakfast options. Actually, it's a fabulous choice at any time -- being open 24 hours -- and boasts a $7.95 prime rib deal, a full Chinese menu and several late-night specials. If you are in a rush, the El Cortez has a small food court just off the lobby housing Subway, Dreyer's Ice Cream Shop and Seattle's Best Coffee. Or the Gambling Gourmet, a game-side dining service, is at your beck and call for a bite anytime you desire.In winter 2014/2015, Siegel's 1941 will open at the resort. A true classic Vegas dining experience, it will feature favorites like prime rib and stone crab as well as some special chef-driven selections.In addition to convivial bars in the lobby and at the center of the casino, the El Cortez has recently unveiled The Parlour Bar & Lounge -- although its classic design suggests it could have been around for years. The décor features rich textures, smoky mirrors, leather club chair seating and a baby grand piano. The Parlour is the perfect place to grab a drink, and it, too, has created a vintage cocktail menu. Guests can sip on a mint julep, a drink that originated in the 1700s, if they desire, or try a modern concoction like the Parlour Refresher or Fireside Manhattan.The El Cortez has free and easy self-parking in two large, five-story garages. There's also a gift shop, a full-service beauty salon and a barber shop on the premises. All of these unique amenities and more await you when you stay at the El Cortez. Whether you're coming to visit one of downtown Las Vegas' many historic attractions or just to spend time with family and friends, let the city's most historic hotel address your every need. -- By Renée LiButti

close to freemont street
PostedFebruary 25, 2013
the room was large with a nice view. older furniture and tv. the casino was smoky and old. didnt have much. We walked down freemont street and did not spend much time at the hotel. Overall a reasonable price for a weeknight but not worth it for the weekend.

The Quad Resort & Casino is being transformed into The LINQ Hotel & Casino. All of the rooms as well as the pool deck, spa and retail area are being renovated. Construction has already begun. The name change will be official on Oct. 30, 2014, with construction due to be completed by spring 2015. The resort will remain open throughout construction.If you're looking for a Vegas resort with a prime location at the center of the Strip and very affordable prices, a good place to keep at the top of your mind is The Quad Resort & Casino. Much of The Quad's interior and exterior have been refurbished. Among the new elements are a renovated porte cochere, casino floor and Catalyst Bar. The Quad is also connected to The LINQ, an outdoor entertainment, shopping and dining district that houses the High Roller observation wheel. O'Sheas Casino has debuted as well -- with three bars, 11 table games, 15 video poker machines and six beer pong tables. Caesars Entertainment has announced that The Quad will be rebranded as The LINQ Hotel & Casino on Oct. 30, 2014. As part of a $223 million renovation project, the property's 2,256 rooms and suites will be remodeled to feature contemporary decor elements as well as pillow-top mattresses, 47-inch flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations with speakers and rain shower heads. In addition, a new pool area (featuring both a standard hotel pool and a dayclub experience), a new lobby bar, a new spa and fitness center, and the new Vortex Roof Deck, are under construction and will debut in spring 2015.The Quad is an always-bustling, mid-sized property situated within walking distance from several of the city's most famous resorts -- including Caesars Palace, The Mirage, Flamingo, Bally's and Harrah's.The Quad also boasts a Las Vegas Monorail stop, which means you'll have easy access to most of the hotels up and down South Las Vegas Boulevard.Catering to visitors of all ages and from all walks of life, The Quad is not a stuffy, elite-style resort.The amenities are spread throughout several floors. The ground floor houses the action-packed casino. In addition to traditional table games and slots, you'll find a state-of-the-art race and sports book and a five-table poker room. The casino tends to be crowded around the clock. The place to drink at the resort is Fat Tuesday, where you can order a variety of frozen daiquiris, perfect to cool you down during the hot summer months. Beers and cocktails of all kinds are available in the casino at the Catalyst Bar. TAG Lounge & Bar also offers more than 300 bottled, can and large-format brews from the U.S. and around the world -- you can even serve yourself at pour-your-own-draft tables. Take the escalator to the second floor and you'll discover additional entertainment options. Jeff Civillico does comedy juggling and other stunts in the afternoon. You can also see the drag extravaganza "Divas Las Vegas" starring Frank Marino in the evening. Or Recycled Percussion, a group that pounds away on everything from buckets and trash cans to ladders and power tools, also perform in a rock 'n' roll-oriented production in the evening.If history is more your thing, check out The Auto Collections. More than 250 classic or historically significant vehicles are being displayed on the fifth floor of the hotel's self-parking garage -- some of which are for sale.?The Quad is home to several great dining options. Chef Guy Fieri, of Food Network's top-rated show "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," has opened his first Las Vegas restaurant -- called Guy Fieri's Kitchen & Bar -- at the north entrance of the resort. South-of-the-border cuisine along with an array of margaritas and a mechanical bull are offered at Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar at the south end of the property. The Quad also boasts has a Hash House A Go Go. The chain restaurant is known for its delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner comfort foods -- which come in oversized portions. Work up a sweat in the fitness center. You can get a manicure in The Salon at The Quad, but the spa is currently closed for renovation.Clean and comfortable, The Quad's towers feature a variety of accommodations ranging from classic rooms with all the basics to deluxe "luv tub" rooms that have spa tubs thrown into the mix. Plus, pet-loving guests are welcome to bring their four-legged friends (weighing less than 50 pounds) to lodge in the special PetStay rooms.For those wanting to tie the knot, the Silver Sky Chapel features two fine venues: the signature Skyline Chapel and the Southwestern Chapel with a desert motif. The Quad is a resort offering value-oriented accommodations. Whether you are coming to party with a group of friends, bringing your family for a vacation or attending a conference, the hotel is sure to suit you.-- By Renée LiButtiNOTE: Due to construction at The Quad, as it is being transformed into The LINQ Hotel & Casino, guests may may encounter temporary inconveniences, construction walls and some noise during daytime hours. The Quad's spa and pool are currently closed for remodeling. Guests can use the Beach Club pool at Flamingo Las Vegas or the pools at Paris Las Vegas and the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

not as clean as last year
PostedNovember 24, 2012
this hotel has gone downhill from last year when we stayed several times. The common areas had very dirty carpet and looked like they had not been maintained in a while. The line at check in was long. Getting to the parking garage was hampered by construction. Construction noise in the morning. long wait for elevators. pool was closed. some escalators were closed. the room was clean and well maintained. Housekeeping staff was good. tub drained slowly and would fill up when showering 2 or 3 inches of water. toilet flush is weak and would leave toilet paper behind. there was a funny smell in the bathroom. overall its a good value for the price on a weeknight and close to other casinos on the strip.
