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 now affiliated with Station Casinos.The featured restaurant at the El Cortez is The Flame Steakhouse. This gourmet room exudes Old Vegas sophistication, which is enhanced by the live piano music. A vintage favorite, especially among locals, there are classic items on the menu that pay tribute to the city's past -- like oysters Rockefeller, escargot à la Bourguignonne, tournedos Rossini, chicken Kiev and strawberries Romanoff.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 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

The Fremont Hotel & Casino is located in the most exciting part of Las Vegas, right in the heart of downtown amid the always lively Fremont Street Experience.This 14-story hotel, with 447 recently remodeled rooms and suites, provides a wonderful escape that won't be expensive. Rooms come standard with one king or two queen beds, a hair dryer, a refrigerator, wireless internet access (for a fee) and a flat-screen TV with cable channels. Rollaway beds and cribs are available upon request. Stunning views of downtown and the Strip's skyline present themselves from the windows. Although there is no pool, guests of the Fremont are welcome to take a dip in the California's sparkling rooftop pool.With a 32,000-square-foot casino, the Fremont boasts all the most popular table games and the latest slot machines. You can also enjoy a live keno lounge and a 42-seat race and sports book.Guests will discover a variety of culinary treasures at the Fremont. If your tastes run from filet mignon to egg rolls, have a meal at the Second Street Grill, which is known for its Pacific Rim-influenced cuisine. Tony Roma's is sure to tempt your palate with flavorful char-grilled ribs, chicken and burgers. Or you can gamble morning, noon and night and eat whenever hunger pangs hit, because there's always something cooking at the fabulous Paradise Buffet & Café. Short on time? Go for a hot dog, salad or Chinese dish at Lanai Express – or just grab a coffee and sweat treat at Dunkin' Donuts. This is all under one roof in the Fremont!For those interested in hosting a meeting or special event, the Fremont has 7,330 square feet of flexible meeting space that can accommodate up to 350 people.Just steps from Fremont Street, the Las Vegas Premium Outlets – North, The Smith Center and more, there is no better place to stay in downtown Las Vegas than the Fremont. Plus, complimentary shuttle service is available to farther-flung places, like Sam's Town Hotel & Gambling Hall on the Boulder Strip -- so you'll have access to the best of all worlds!-- By Renée LiButti

About one mile west of the Las Vegas Strip sits the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino. Sci-fi fans may remember seeing it bombarded by Martians in Tim Burton's 1996 cult film "Mars Attacks!"Opened in 1986, the mid-sized, 711-room resort may be a little rough around the edges but is still a cool classic in the city. The Gold Coast tends to attract an older clientele and caters to a mix of locals and visitors.The property retains the feel of a Victorian-style gambling hall. The front desk and lobby are quaint with a mixture of wood paneling and brass fixtures. The central gaming floor, on the other hand, is truly grand with a domed ceiling, eight elegant chandeliers, stained glass windows and hanging flower boxes.Although referencing the past in decor, its casino heralds the future. Guests can play 48 different table games here. They'll also discover more than 2,100 slot and video poker machines. Surrounded by 38 huge flat-screen TVs, the race and sports book is a high-tech facility with 30 interactive betting terminals. Plus, there's an expansive 720-seat bingo room upstairs, where eight action-packed sessions are called daily.Two of Vegas' favorite Asian restaurants can be found at the Gold Coast. The first is Ping Pang Pong, which may sound like a silly name but actually boasts a kitchen and graceful dining room that are serious about Chinese fare. Chefs prepare a multitude of specialty dishes from the country's various provinces. In contrast, the Noodle Exchange is a less formal eatery with a plentiful selection of broth, Ban Ban and stir-fried noodles for meat lovers and vegetarians alike.As befits a western-themed hotel, the Gold Coast has a traditional steakhouse, the Cortez Room. It serves a wide-ranging menu including perfectly seasoned and slow-roasted prime rib, Steak Diane, Chicken Oscar and Seafood Olympia.For casual dining, the Ports O' Call Buffet will take you on a culinary journey around the world. Or just drop in on T.G.I. Friday's, the chain restaurant that is open 24/7, for some mouth-watering pub grub.The intimate Gold Coast Showroom, swathed in timeless red decor, showcases a variety of acts including magic, live music and ballroom dancing. In addition, guests can try for a strike in the 70-lane bowling alley on the resort's second floor. It features state-of-the-art equipment along with bumper bowling for kids.A delightful freeform outdoor swimming pool, a fully stocked fitness center, a beauty salon and an old-fashioned barber shop round out the offerings at this charming Vegas property. And if Gold Coast guests want to get out and about without doing the driving, they can hop on a complimentary shuttle to the Strip and The Orleans.-- By Renée LiButti

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.
