Rated 4 out of 5 by I love the Vintage Rooms The only downfall to the El Cortez is that they don't have a pool. Otherwise, I love staying in the Vintage rooms because you come down right into the tables. And who can beat .25 Roulette! April 14, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor service We love to stay downtown but I wouldn't stay at the El Cortez again poor service. Our room was OK if you could make it there. The front desk is the worst and rude I've ever dealt with. Last thing they charge you a deposit and put back on your card in 2-3 business days after you check out, sounds fishy to me. April 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by We loved every thing about the El Cortez... We had a view of the strip skyline from our room on the 6 floor. The room was clean and very comfortable. We ate at the Café Cortez and the food was good and the servings were large. The hotel is close to the experience and the duce. We had a real good time and can't wait to do it again!!! March 29, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst place ever This is without a doubt the worst hotel i have ever stayed at. Their first attempt to get us in a room put us in a room that smelled like an old lady had dumped all of her perfume out and then smoked 20 packs of cigarettes to try to cover up the smell. Add the fact that the air conditioner would not turn on and it made for a smell so bad that after 10 minutes in the room, we felt like we were going to throw up. 45 minutes of working with people at the registration desk (and telling me they had nothing available except the cabana rooms for $50 per night more), they moved us to a different room. The bellhop took us to the room to pre-smell the room and it was much better, but not perfect and the air conditioner actually worked so we said ok. We went back to get our stuff and proceeded to unpack in the room. That's when we noticed the end tables, the headboard of the bed and the dresser were covered with a layer of white hair. It looked like Colonel Sanders had shaved his beard off while standing in front of a fan. This hair had been there so long that it was stuck to the pen on the table, the notepad and even the candy they left in the room were sitting on top of it. I once again called the front desk. i was told that the manager would call back. 10 minutes later, no manager. i called again and talked to a different person. This person said they would send housekeeping to our room. 15 minutes after that, nobody had showed up. add the time up, we're at about an hour and 15 minutes that i could have been spending money in their casino. By this time, i was getting pretty upset so we went down to the front desk and stood in line for another 10 minutes waiting to talk to someone. i talked to the same people i had been talking to earlier and told them the situation with the room and that it was not acceptable. The answer i got was, "well, you said it was acceptable". i proceeded to ask why nobody had called back and that someone said they would send housekeeping. the lady at the desk defensively said she had called housekeeping and i made it clear that they had not shown up and i needed to see the manager about this. after about another 30 minutes of putting up with them, they finally came in and said they can upgrade me to a pavillion room for an additional $20/night, but it's usually a $40 upgrade. i said i will not accept that that i needed to have a different room without paying an upgrade charge or they needed to give me a can of pledge and a rag and give me the room for free. Gurpal then went back to the manager (i don't think there was a manager there at all, they were just doing the old car salesman routine, hoping i would just go away here). finally, after dealing with them for now about 2 hours, they put me in the pavillion room. This room was decent, that is until we tried to go to sleep and were kept awake by the flaming cockroach at Container park. This hotel has to be the worst kept hotel, smelled the worst, and had the absolute worst customer service i have ever experienced. my advice? don't waste your time here. although the one good thing, the manager of the subway in the hotel was the best server/manager i have ever experienced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Would not recommend Bad experience from the start. We wasted 1hour trying to get a room for our friends that didn't reek of old lady perfume. The second room appeared as if Colonel Sanders trimmed his beard in front of a fan and hair was everywhere. After another 1 1/2 hours at the front desk they finally got a room that was acceptable. No apologies at all. They acted as if we were the nuisance. Casino smelled of stale perfume trying to cover up the smoke. Overall unimpressed! March 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice clean and friendly nice clean rooms and friendly I would stay their again great location March 17, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Your description was inaccurate you show the el Cortez cabana suites Your website shows the El Cortez cabana suites not the hotels main rooms, it was the worst experience I have ever had . They charge you 80.00 dep which you don't mention on website and that's on top of your fees and the 20.22 convenience charge. They put us in a room that smelled so bad and there were stains on the sheets from the guest before . The rooms are non-smoking but you smell cigarette all through the night people fighting outside your room security was rude never stay here again !! March 4, 2014

Answer: 
No, the El Cortez does not offer any kind of transportation to the Strip. The El Cortez is in convenient walking distance of Fremont Street Experience and all of the attractions in downtown Las Vegas. To get to the Strip, your best bet is to go by taxi or ride The Deuce and SDX bus systems. Here's a link to information about about the various bus routes and schedules: http://www.rtcsnv.com/transit/route...
