After six months of hard work, the winner of the El Cortez Design-A-Suite contest has been announced. "The Big Sleep" has been chosen as the best design of the four suites that the historic 70-year-old El Cortez handed over to four Nevada-licensed design teams for complete makeovers - all for $20,000. The Sun has followed the designers on every step of the process. Now, see the big announcement and hear the reaction of the winner, Tina Enard of Urban Design Studio.
