Strip, Las Vegas

The hotel

An all-studio suite tower slap bang in the middle of The Strip, Elara, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club offers Las Vegas visitors the height of luxury. Seamlessly connected to Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, there is literally no end of entertainment, including fabulous Broadway-style shows in sumptuous theatre surrounds, lively bars serving delicious cocktails and sophisticated nightclubs pumping music out into the early hours! It’s also connected to the Miracle Mile shopping complex, good news indeed for those in need of retail therapy. Take time out to relax beside the swimming pool and order a drink from the bar & grill.

In-between swimming, gaming and relaxing, there are plenty of restaurants nearby to visit serving everything from gourmet sandwiches to delectable Japanese cuisine. Just a short walk from the hotel, Koi Las Vegas is very trendy indeed or head to Strip House for juicy steaks and delectable deserts including a 24-layer chocolate cake – well, this aint called Sin City for nothing!

The location next to the Miracle Mile Mall made it convenient for great in expensive meals and shopping. The timeshare presentation was a little pushie at the end- but eventually No-Meant-No just like on any other date. Worthy visit and awesome stay. Read less

Overall the hotel is very nice, but we got off on the wrong foot upon arrival.... We had arrived early and decided to inquire about early check in at approx 11am. The front desk person told us that she could assign us a room immediately but if we wanted to wait a bit she could assign us a "better" room. My wife told her that we were there to celebrate my daughters 16th birthday (two days prior to arrival), and she said she would take care of us. As of 3pm we still had not heard from anyone so my wife went to the front desk to make sure we hadn't missed a notification. The same front desk person told her that it would still be a bit longer, but she promised us a corner suite room that "would be worth the wait". We received our notification at 430pm that the room was ready, and went to our 19th floor room. Upon our arrival we found that there was nothing remarkable about the room we waited several hours for. Our reservation was for a 3BR corner suite, and being put on floor 19 floor of a 56 floor hotel after a 5.5 hour wait was extremely disappointing. If we knew that we were going to be put in a room with no "extra benefits" for the long wait time then we would have taken a room at 11am rather than waiting. Once in our room, we found that the master bedroom was extremely warm (thermostat was set to 72, but the room was 82 degrees). We called the front desk and within 15 minutes a serviceman was there. He diagnosed a bad part in the unit and it was resolved within 30 minutes. There was also an issue with the motorized shades in the master bedroom where they were not going up/down as they should. A serviceman investigated that and believed it was a button that was hung up and no repairs were made. The curtains continued giving us problems throughout the week, but we didn't want to wait again for another service call. The sofa appeared to be old and was very uncomfortable on one end (there was no give to it, like the seat cushioning was worn out and a board was put in it to allow it to continue being used). The other end of the sofa had no issue. We also called housekeeping for additional toiletries mid-week. After waiting for an hour nobody had shown up. At that point we left the room for the evening, then went to the front desk after getting back to the hotel to request our toiletries. On the positive side the hotel pool/poolside bar was remarkably clean and aesthetically pleasing, the hotel lobby is spacious and modern, and the elevators were plentiful and speedy. The location makes it seems as though you're on the strip, and it's just a short walk through the Miracle Mile Shops to get to Las Vegas Blvd. Self parking in the Miracle Mile Shops parking lot was not as difficult many other reviews made it seem. I think I would consider staying at the hotel again, but sadly our first day experience is what comes to mind when I look back at our week there. Read less

The rooms are spacious and updated. This is one of our favorite places to stay as it is centrally located on the strip and is attached to the Miracle Mile Mall. The only issue I think someone might have is that the beds are very high off the ground.

Got suckered into timeshare presentation on a different stay with Hilton; told me I could get a cheap 4 night vacation as Hilton member (I didn't realize I'd have to drag the wife to ANOTHER timeshare presentation... we hate those).

Got suckered into timeshare presentation on a different stay with Hilton; told me I could get a cheap 4 night vacation as Hilton member (I didn't realize I'd have to drag the wife to ANOTHER timeshare presentation... we hate those). Anyway, when I went to book our vacation, I found out I'd have to sit through a timeshare. Besides that inconvenience, the hotel is great. Confusing at first to figure out how/where to park since it's connected to Miracle Mile Shops and Planet Hollywood. Also, it's off the strip a bit. Other than that, I loved it. We had a 2 bedroom suite, which had full kitchen, in room laundry, two jacuzzi tubs, lots of TVS (including a full screen wall projector), great views, free movies from DVD kiosks downstairs! Kids loved it, and plenty of space. I wouldn't pay retail price for this "resort" however it's great to try at discount in exchange for a timeshare presentation. Great accomodations at very reasonable price! Read less
