El Cortez Hotel and Casino in downtown Las Vegas will be transitioning to a 21 and older property.

The transition will be done in two phases as part of the property's $25 million remodel. 

According to a media release, a renovation of the original 47 "vintage" rooms is still in progress.

For all hotel stays booked April 1, 2022, and beyond, all guests must be 21 years of age or older with a valid state-issued identification. 


The future phase of this new policy will include identification checks at every entrance, making the entire property, including all food and beverage outlets, limited to guests 21 years and older. 

The downtown property joins Circa in only allowing guests 21 and older.
