Mon, Nov 29, 2010 (2 p.m.)
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 $20,00 budget.
