El Cortez parking garage



OK, so it’s not listed on the hotel website as one of the official benefits of signing up for Club Cortez (a.k.a. “Jackie’s Club”), but if you flash your card at the entrance to the El Cortez parking garage on North Seventh and Fremont streets, you get free parking there anytime.
