“Coolest little hotel in Reno!!!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2003

I have stayed at the El Cortez many many times and I love it.It is older,but very clean and nice.But if you want all the luxeries of life it is not a place to stay.I always return as it has character and class.The elevator alone is an adventure by itself.I have stayed at Circus Circus and others,but I always returnto E C.The staff is curtious,friendly.The hotel never changes and I love it.It is alot of fun for those who want to go to Reno but can't afford to stay in the other hotels..If it wasn't for the El Cortez I would never of been able to see the Biggest Little City in the World.Hoorah El Cortez!!!! Hope to be able to visit again soon as it has been awhile.
