We booked a Vintage Room for two nights. April 5-6, 2014. The room was fine. Clean and comfortable. It overlooked Fremont Street. We booked it through the hotel website. We were on our way to the TCM film festival in Hollywood and being a vintage film festival we wanted to make it vintage all the way. After having dinner in the hotel dining room, which was fine, we returned to our room to find techo-pop music blaring from one of the small nightclubs on Fremont Street that continued until welll after 3:00 a.m., when we had to ask for another room so we could get some sleep to travel on to L.A. the next morning. The hotel staff stated that they could not do anything about the loud intrusive music. We were then "upgraded' to a dingy room above the parking garage. We had to carry our own luggage to the new room at 3:00 a.m. The entire downtown experience was was seedy and creepy. The inability to get some sleep even after 3:00 a.m. was a real problem. I lived in LV as a child and Fremont Street Street has become dangerous and weird. I would avoid it and stay on the Strip next time. The El Cortez management needs to protect their investment-it is going the way of Main Street L.A. in the 1970's.
