Yearning for the days of old Vegas? You can't get much more vintage than staying at a casino that's on the National Register of Historic Places.Step back in time at the El Cortez, where you can experience the history, style and personal service standards of classic Vegas -- along with dining, a bustling casino floor and an elegant bar.Opened in 1941, the El Cortez is one of the longest continuously running hotel/casino in Las Vegas. 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. Now that's old Vegas.Today, the El Cortez is 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, the Downtown Container Park and the famous Fremont Street Experience attraction.The resort's casino has long been popular with visitors and locals. There are more than 1,000 slot machines on the casino floor, including numerous coin-operated ones. It's one of the only casinos left in town that has the retro clinking coin machines. The El Cortez has a keno lounge and a sports book that's affiliated with Station Casinos.For old school dining bargains, head to the 24-hour Café Cortez for affordable breakfast options, prime rib deals and late-night specials. There's also a small food court just off the lobby with a Subway, Dreyer's Ice Cream Shop and Seattle's Best Coffee.Gamers who don't want to leave a hot machine or table can take advantage of El Cortez’s Gambling Gourmet, a game-side dining service that will deliver food to you so you can play uninterrupted.In 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.The El Cortez offers bars in the lobby and casino, but the centerpiece is The Parlour Bar & Lounge, which is decorated in rich textures with smoky mirrors, leather club chair seating and a baby grand piano. The Parlour is the perfect place to grab a drink from the vintage cocktail menu and listen to live music. Guests can sip on a mint julep, a drink that originated in the 1700s, or try a more modern concoction like the Parlour Refresher. The bar also serves small bites like artichoke dip, fish tacos and wings.

Who said being the center of attention was a bad thing? Located in the heart of the ever-lively Fremont Street Experience, The Fremont Hotel and Casino has taken downtown's center stage and isn't leaving anytime soon.This recently remodeled 14-story hotel, welcomes guests and visitors alike with glowing marquees and inexpensive fun.Boasting a 32,000-square-foot casino that is open to the energetic Fremont Street explorers, the Fremont is home to 1,000 slots, video poker and keno machines as well as 24 table games, live keno, and a 42-seat Race and Sports Book.  Located right next to the Race and Sports Book is the Fremont's Paradise Buffett. With eight stations, it is very likely that you will find an entree to satisfy even the most persistent of cravings. However, even if your needs were met in the buffet, you will eventually need to refuel again and The Fremont offers several additional eateries to keep you satisfied. More casual dining can be enjoyed at the Second Street Grill, which is known for its Pacific Rim-influenced cuisine, or Tony Roma's, which sure to tempt your palate with flavorful char-grilled ribs, chicken and burgers. Short on time? Go for a hot dog, salad or Chinese dish at Lanai Express – or just grab a coffee and a sweat treat at Dunkin' Donuts or the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.  With direct access to Fremont Street and a nearby stop for the Strip and Downtown Express bus line, adventures begin just steps outside of the hotel. Whether you're content exploring downtown  or if you're seeking out Las Vegas Boulevard, the Fremont Hotel and Casino is a convenient place to call home base.

Not to worry, there have not been any reports of Martian sightings at Las Vegas' Gold Coast Hotel and Casino since the filming of Tim Burton's 1996 cult film "Mars Attacks!" However, that is not to say that this property lacks excitement.Opened in 1986, the mid-sized property attracts a mix of locals and visitors alike. Favored by the older crowd due to the hotel's quieter nature, the Gold Coast is an excellent property to stay at or visit if you're looking for a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas Strip's tourist crowds.Having retained the feel of a Victorian-style gambling hall, the front desk and lobby have a mixture of wood paneling and brass fixtures while the central gaming floor is embellished with a domed ceiling, eight elegant chandeliers, stained glass windows and hanging flower boxes. Although referencing the past in decor, its casino is firmly positioned in the present. Packed with an array of games, the 86,000-square-foot gaming floor offers guests 49 different table games and more than 2,100 slot and video poker machines. Additionally, the Race and Sports Book boasts 30 interactive betting terminals and 38 flat-screen TVs that surround the betting area. There's also an expansive 720-seat bingo room upstairs, where eight action-packed sessions are called daily.But when the growling of your stomach becomes louder than the bingo caller's announcements, you will be happy to take a dining break at one of the hotel's on-premises restaurants. For casual dining, Ping Pang Pong (a locals' spot for dim sum), presents an array of bona fide Chinese fare. And along the lines of the same cuisine, the Noodle Exchange is a creative noodle bar with a plentiful selection of broth, Ban Ban and stir-fried noodles for meat lovers and vegetarians alike. But if you're in the when-I-see-it-I'll-know-I-want-it type eating mood, the Ports O' Call Buffet will take you on a culinary journey around the world and you will surely find whatever it is that you are looking for.For those of you looking to get spruced up for an evening of fine dining, the Gold Coast has a traditional steakhouse that will see those plans through. Serving a wide-ranging menu including perfectly seasoned and slow-roasted prime rib, Steak Diane, Chicken Oscar and Seafood Olympia, the Cortez Room is the hotel's golden nugget.However, if you are just looking to quickly hush those hunger pangs and get back to the action, quicker bites can be enjoyed at T.G.I. Friday's, the chain restaurant that is open 24/7,.The small Gold Coast Showroom, swathed in red decor, showcases a variety of acts including mystifying magic, lively music and ballroom dancing. Additionally, guests can try for a strike in the 70-lane bowling alley on the resort's second floor. Featuring state-of-the-art equipment along with bumper bowling for kids… and adults… we will only judge a little.And for a little more activity, you can get your sweat on in the fully equipped fitness center or take a dip in the hotel's freeform pool, and then freshen up in the old-fashioned barber shop or beauty salon.

Great experience
PostedJune 30, 2013
I stayed at this hotel with my teenage grandsons for three nights. The customer service was excellent from check in to departure.The buffet was good only complaint from grandsons that dont eat beef or pork was only got turkey sausage one day. Maria was the only waitress that seemed annoyed if we asked for something extra.Overall we had a wonderful mini vacation.We will be back.
