Located behind Planet Hollywood, one must traverse the long shopping mall to reach the strip. While valet parking is availalble, it not consistent with other properties on the strip, $15 a day. For self park one must drive over the bridge and through the woods to find the parking structure. It took the valet 5 minutes to explain the not... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite that had a fantastic view of the strip with gigantic windows!! It... More

Positives: really friendly staff. The check in was easy, the suite was beautiful The evening bartender (Oscar) makes a great lemon drop martini. The hotel is clean, beautiful, modern and quiet. The Vegas strip is only a few minutes away by foot. No casino noise, nobody trying to force discount show coupons at you. What can you say about a... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times. I like it because there is no casino and it is very quiet. This particular stay was not "up to par". First the wireless internet service didn't work most of the time. I was in room 3018 - so be forewarned. When I checked into my room, it smelled srongly of bleach. Makes... More

We booked a mini suite and were astounded by the view and windows. The check in was great and efficient and you can save $15 by parking in the self park lot on Floor 3. The pool is being re-plastered and tiled right now (Jan early February 2015) so no pool or hot tubs. The reason for no 5 is... More

This hotel is nice. It is not right not he strip but it's close enough. You can walk through a mall and Planet Hollywood to get to the strip. A group of friends and I had a suite with two bedrooms. It was very large and spacious. The decor was fine, sort of tacky and cheap looking however in parts.... More

Hotel lobby is very inviting and spacious. Unfortunately, not all of the desk staff were friendly and accommodating. Location is great with strip access. The resort is also attached to the Miracle Mile shops, which has a casino, serval restaurants, and shops. There is something for everyone.

Elara is a beautiful hotel. The 1-bedroom suite was awesome, even on the bottom floor (5th fl). I liked the red & black - though some have said it is dated, it is very clean, and we thought it was "Vegas kitch, baby!" We loved the full kitchen, comfy red sectional sofa, floor to cieling windows, large bedroom with a... More

We have stayed in Las Vegas in the past directly on the strip, but this property is still close enough to all of the action. I love the fact that it was with in close proximity to the Walgreen for extra toiletries etc...The security of the hotel with the card swipe for guest is a plus, and I cant forget... More

This hotel/vacation club offers a nice central location close to all the amenities of the strip. Also nice how many suite sizes and designs to choose from. Housekeeping left a bit to be desired (doors in the bathroom were dirty etc.).. but overall quite nice. This hotel is located within the miracle mile shops which is interesting....
