The historic 70-year-old El Cortez Hotel & Casino has turned four of its suites over to local design teams for a complete makeover - and the team with the best design gets to design six more suites in Las Vegas' oldest continuously operating casino. El Cortez's Design-a-Suite contest started with 32 applicants, and has now been narrowed down to four finalists. Meet each Nevada-licensed design team and follow along as they plan, and shop, to make their visions become reality on only a $20,000 budget.
