For the past six months, four teams of Nevada-licensed designers - chosen from a pool of 32 applicants - have been designing suites in the historic 70-year-old El Cortez Hotel & Casino. The Sun has been there every step of the way, from renderings to construction to completion. Get an inside tour of each finished suite, which had to be designed on a $20,000 budget. Winners will be announced at an event at the El Cortez from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Feb. 3 - and the winning team gets to design six more suites in Las Vegas' oldest continuously operating casino.
