Designed by architects Walker and Eisen in 1919, El Cortez opened in 1927 and luminaries such as Elvis Presley and Ginger Rogers left their footprints upon our storied Don Room floor. Thoughtful restoration, attention to detail and the integration of original interior features brings forth classic décor, including oiled bronze handrails and original Mahogany ballroom floor, a signature look for our historic luxury venue atop Cortez Hill. You can see this in our most captivating focal points - our 24k gold leafed ceiling with mica chandelier. Your footsteps, our ballroom floor, history happens!
