El Cortez Hotel & Casino Announces Room Renovations

El Cortez Hotel & Casino, located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, has begun renovating 73 of its Tower Rooms to debut in late summer 2018. The new interior décor and artwork represent the hotel’s location and history.

The renovated rooms plan to offer a modern design blended with a touch of Spanish Colonial style. Highlights of the redesigned rooms include vintage Las Vegas-inspired artwork, black and white floor tiles, traditional style rugs, carved wood details and modern accent furniture. 

Stepping into the hallway, guests will be greeted with a full-size monochromatic mural of the Downtown Las Vegas skyline with a pop art graphic layered atop. Accenting the mural is a splash of color, changing per floor, giving each level a distinctive style. El Cortez’s history can be found along the corridor graphic with an abstract interpretation of its vintage sign spanning the length of the hallway.

Alexandra Epstein-Gudai, partner and executive manager of El Cortez Hotel & Casino, said the goal of the renovation was to “design rooms and hallways that are completely updated and contemporary, while maintaining the warmth and nostalgia for which El Cortez is known.”

Opened in 1941, El Cortez has served as a destination in Downtown Las Vegas for over 75 years. It is the longest continuously running hotel and casino in the city. The hotel has undergone several renovations, but still holds on to vintage elements such as its façade, which has been the same since 1952. In February of 2013, the structure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, making it the only casino on the list.
