El Cortez Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas
Despite the passing decades, El Cortez continues to thrive. The building predominantly showcases Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, but it underwent a modernization of its facade in 1952. Following subsequent renovations and revitalization efforts, the establishment added a new tower and a neon sign—an iconic art form that had fallen out of favor until recently, when certain hotels and businesses rediscovered its charm.
Recognizing its historical significance, El Cortez was officially included on the National Register of Historic Places on February 22, 2013.
