El Cortez – Icon in San Diego’s Beautiful Skyline

El Cortez is located in Downtown San Diego’s Cortez Hill neighborhood. The building has been a landmark since it originally opened in 1927 as a hotel. Till this day, the El Cortez sign remains an icon in our downtown’s skyline. In the 1950’s, the El Cortez added the world’s first outdoor glass elevator, but sadly that was removed at one point or another. In 1978, the hotel closed and it wasn’t until the late 90’s that the project went through extensive restoration efforts. In 2004, the building was converted into 85 condominiums. El Cortez’s rich history, iconic architecture, and historic character make it a one of a kind community within Downtown San Diego. El Cortez offers amenities, such as a pool/spa, fitness facility, and optional valet service.
