Historical

by written on March 22, 2009

El Cortez was built in 1941 for $245,000 by J.K. Houssels as a fifty nine room hotel and casino. Although it built far away from the lime light of Vegas, it was becoming very successful. Soon some of Vegas most colorful gangsters such as Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky were very attracted to Cortez success; they soon bought this very property in 1945. The Pavilion rooms were added in 1963 and in 1980 the tower was added bring the room count to 300. It was bought by Jackie Gaughan in 1963 that still owns and operates the property. He lives up in the penthouse in the tower and it is said you can see him daily in the casino.

Directions: Between 6th and 7th Streets

I stayed for 17 nights ,its realy noisy there,from a bar/club?in one of the nearby streets,music went on till late,also the helicopters that do the strip tour come up the strip and turn and go back down the strip ,but they turn around over the hotel and it can go on for a long time,I also one day had security asked me to leave the hotel,till i told them i was staying there,big shock for me ,and also still waiting for my deposit to be returned,they took from my credit card better spend a bit more somewhere else.
