Above is an image of the El Cortez Hotel and Casino in the 1940s, via “Vintage Las Vegas.” Starting on Friday, April 1, the 80-year-old hotel-casino will begin its transition into an adults-only property. All guests staying at the hotel will have to be 21 or older with a valid ID.
“This transition comes after careful consideration and decades of trying to accommodate minors in a property that is focused primarily on gaming and popular casino bars,” general manager Adam Wiesberg said in a statement.
A second phase of this transition will include ID checks at every entrance so that the entire property, including restaurants, will be limited to guests 21 and up. That policy, however, has no start date.
The transition follows renovations of the historic property, which recently completed a $25 million remodeling that includes room upgrades and a redesigned casino floor.
