EL CORTEZ CABANA SUITES IT'S THE OG STAYCATION DESTINATION IN THE LV!
Forget everything you think you know about The El Cortez. Now.
Well don’t, actually, because The El Cortez is still there in all of it’s original El Cortezness. More on the TRUE Original Gangsta later.
For now focus, no feast, your eyes on The El Cortez Cabana Suites. If you’ve been wondering why there is no South Beach sizzle IN THE LV, let your mind wonder no mas. From the decaying roots of the catty cornered Ogden House, Heather Hassan reimagined the property into a modern day Rat Packian hangout replete with white “leather” headboards and the Glammest bathrooms outside of the places where Sharon Stone did her best work in “Casino”.
AND THE PRICES! On a recent fantasy weekend, I priced rooms and the most expensive was $90! Mind you this included a huge flat screen TV, IPod dock, and mucho mas Glam! Actually, I would have given them the $90 just to hang in the Lana Turneresque lobby for a couple of hours drinking Hypnotiq from a cut crystal decanter.
On your next OG Staycation IN THE LV, make sure you’re at El Cortez Cabana Suites. Pretend you’re Sharon Stone and Glam it up “Casino” style!
