I had the honor to stay at this fine Resort Timeshare style hotel with all of its amenities. However was quite disappointed that my Hilton Honors Gold Membership didn't feel like any benefits to me besides 2 bottles of water a day. Laughable... The hotel itself was great, the big issue was when we expected and was looking forward in our requested accommodation to stay at the premiere 1 Bed King Suite, once we arrived it was not available and was quite shocked as Covid has depressed vacation stays. I wasn't a happy camper and bite the bullet to stsy in the small studio for our weekend July4th vacation. I don't think I will return to this hotel until they can accommodate there higher tier customers better. It was equal to staying in a regular Hilton base hotel, but for this building nothing matched what it's worth... Read less

Hilton vacation club and services are not supposed to be like this. I booked 4 nights coming here with family and kids for vacation. The first thing I noticed is that some rooms have stickers on the door stating the room has been sanitized. However, my room does not have that sticker. The first two nights are peaceful. We had great time enjoy the view from the 32 floor. The nightmare started on the third night. I was woken up by the loud music from next door (connecting room) at 3AM. Who knows how long they have been partying! The loud music and shouting continues till probably 5AM. Also, I smelled marijuana coming into our room. Omg. My kids are also in the room. This is ridiculous. The next morning I went to the lobby and expressed my concern. The manager just said they will investigate and would not let me change to another room. This is what Hilton treat their customers! In the afternoon, the next door again caused issues. Somehow they triggered fire alarm for the whole floor. Smoke coming out of their room. I then go down to the lobby again and asked for director. He told me again they will investigate. I keep complaining and eventually he agreed to change me to another room. I have stayed in 3 different Hilton vacation club in Vegas and also stayed in many Hilton vacation club in different cities. Elara is the worst of them all. Although Elara is fairly new and nice in hardware, the services from the staffs are at one star hotel level Read less

We have stayed here three times while visiting Las Vegas, and we love it. We opt for the one bedroom. It is very spacious, and we’ve always had a good view from our room. There is a kitchen with a full sized fridge, which is great if you’re staying for 4-5 days. The first thing we do when we arrive is place a Prime Now order for snacks and water.… Read more
We have stayed here three times while visiting Las Vegas, and we love it. We opt for the one bedroom. It is very spacious, and we’ve always had a good view from our room. There is a kitchen with a full sized fridge, which is great if you’re staying for 4-5 days. The first thing we do when we arrive is place a Prime Now order for snacks and water. You must be in your room when your food arrives because you will need to go downstairs and accept the food yourself, the hotel will not accept it for you. The bedroom comes with a jacuzzi tub, but we’ve never used it. The bathroom is large, so we don’t have any trouble tripping over each other when we’re getting ready. The living room has a large wraparound couch with a pull out bed, but my favorite feature is the electric window shade that doubles as a TV projector screen. It was perfect when we had friends (staying elsewhere) come by to watch a football game with us. There was plenty of space for everyone, and you could see the game from anywhere in the room. My MIL has come to Vegas with us a couple times, and she books her room here as well. For her, it’s nice to have the amenities of home and the space to lounge around and relax when she doesn’t want to be out and about all day every day. The location is perfect for us. You’re right on the strip, but not in a crowded casino when you go downstairs. It’s connected to the Miracle Mile shops, which also connects with Planet Hollywood casino. Right now, the pool is open with limited hours (12-6, I think). They are only allowing ~200 people in the pool area, so there may be a line if you want to lounge by the pool for part of the day. It was way too crowded for my preference when we walked by on July 4th. Read less

I booked a 3 bedroom suite for 3 nights for my partner who was having a get together with his brothers, a bonding trip that was very important given they’ve never tried doing anything together at all. Prior to arrival I’ve called several times just to get a recording which was understandable since they were re-opening the hotel that same day. When I finally did get to talk to a live person, she did confirm that the hotel only had 6 suites with the red windows and that we were reserved to have one of them which is definitely what I wanted and excited to share with my partner who was already at the airport with his brothers. I used my grand vacation ownership points for this and with my gold honors status figured that they would take care of my guests. Surprisingly when I followed to meet them on the last day, they were not placed in that room but stuck on the back end with 3 connecting rooms and a living room smaller than one in a junior suite. The master bedroom was tiny with a very slim closet, no mirrors except in the bathroom - I was the one surprised and embarrassed to see the room. 1 toilet would not flush, the projector emitted a small screen and thinking it just needed to be fixed, we were told that because the room was ‘smaller’ than everything in the hotel, that was all were getting - totally useless so you might as well just use the regular TV. Tried calling the desk multiple times, gave up after maybe 5 minutes at least of waiting for an answer. When I approached the desk to ask, I was told that my guests should have checked in earlier, really? And I found out that they gave the guest in front of them the suite we asked for. Basically, no regard for your honor status and that you are a grand vacation owner. I find it hard to believe that 6 owners would reserve the same suite on the same day and would think this would be controlled on the reservation page. When I asked if they could at least give us a couple bottles of water, we were lectured about having to pay a resort fee and unfortunately we didn’t so basically we can’t get one ‘but’ she’s willing to make a 1 time exception. No apologies, no thanks for being an owner and spending all this money for HOA and monthly fees. Very disappointed and still upset that I can’t even provide accommodations properly because the hotel staff decided that our reservation wasn’t as important unless we come early. If first come first serve is the basis of room placements then what is the point of being an owner and paying all these fees. Bottomline, if treated this way, there’s no point for anyone to sign up for ownership. Once they get you locked in a contract, you get the worse suite because they will try to impress other guests to sign up for ownership and give them the suite that they feature. Read less
