The Elara is a nice hotel. Not breathtaking, but nice. We had one of the older king double suites and it was starting to show its age. Our son stayed in a remodeled suite that was more fresh, so I could definitely see a difference. The pool is small but easy to access (as opposed to some of the very... More

I usually write a review for 1 of 2 reasons. Either we had a terrible experience or great experience. This hotel was definitely great in our opinion. We have been to vegas several times and always stayed at the large, glitzy hotels on the strip, but this time decided to try the elara and glad we did. We like the... More

I have high expectation for Hilton Hotels and even higher expectations for Hilton Grand Vacation Hotels. The Elara is well located, the lobby is nice, the pool is very nice, the staff is great. I felt safe in the building. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The Room Service food is excellent and well priced. The Fitness Room has... More

The Elara is a great choice for people who want ready access to a large casino resort and shopping area, but also a smoke-free, relatively serene environment to which to escape. This is a Hilton Vacations property and seems intended for longer stays than my one night, but it was perfect for my purposes. My one bedroom suite on the... More

We had a great room that had views of the Strip! Love their shades that you could open/close by a switch on the wall. May have to look at that for my house. Had lots of room to relax in after hitting the streets which was really nice. Full refrigerator for those left-overs. All the staff was very nice. Liked... More

I was here for a gymnastics meet with our kids. We had the two room suite with the amazing wall of windows and projection TV. It was even better than the pictures posted here. The price and location can't be beat. Being attached to the miracle mile mall was a huge advantage over other casino hotels with "malls". The dining... More

The location is excellent. If you want to be center strip but get tired of staying in the craziness of a casino this place is ok. Overall, the rooms are pretty well maintained but starting to show age. The MAJOR drawback is that this place is going through a remodel. Of course, they didn't tell me about it. I planned... More

Our sincerest apologies for the renovation noise. We are currently installing additional ice machines on the guest room floor to provide an added convenience since their are currently only two machines in the tower. The scope of the work was a little more intense then originally planned and we did not anticipate such disturbance. We are pleased they are now... More

My husband and I visited the Elara for a few days. Our visit included a timeshare presentation. Our room was on the 27th floor facing the High Roller. We had a nice view of the Eiffel Tower, and the view at night was incredible with all of the lights and floor to ceiling windows. We had a one bedroom suite... More

A friend booked us a visit using his membership. The hotel is centrally located which is nice. The rooms are ok, beds very comfortable. The downside is that there is NO housekeeping. You have to make your own bed, you don't get fresh towels, the trash doesn't get emptied,YOU ARE THE HOUSEKEEPER WHICH DOESNT MAKE A RELAXING VACAY. Being that... More
