ABOUT THE JACKIE GAUGHAN SUITE

Once the residence of the legendary Jackie Gaughan, former owner of the El Cortez Hotel & Casino, and his wife, Bertie, this penthouse suite is the crown jewel of the hotel.

A bookmaker from Nebraska, Gaughan had relocated to Las Vegas in 1950 and bought a stake in the Flamingo. At that time, being in the casino business meant regular contact with the city’s organized crime figures. In fact, with the purchase of the El Cortez in 1963, Gaughan “inherited” aging mobster Irish Green because former El Cortez owner Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel had promised to house him at the hotel for life.

Following Gaughan’s passing in 2014, the hotel’s current owners, the Epstein family, opted to honor his legacy by maintaining the suite’s original 1980s style, which Gaughan’s wife, Bertie, designed. Original décor includes pink upholstered walls and floors, brass built-ins, hand-carved wooden double doors with brass door pulls in the shape of “J” and “G” and a pink marbled tub with gold swan features. The suite encompasses 2,700 square feet, two bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, one romper room, a full kitchen and a spacious living and dining area.
