I've never stayed downtown and I wanted to give it a try so I went to the El Cortez. I actually liked the place. The tower room was perfectly fine and I was on the quiet side of the building. But the smoke that permeated the facility was more than I expected (even for an old school Las Vegas casino). Still it had a good vibe and I liked the proximity to Fremont Street (which was great). And the room price was pretty hard to beat.
