This hotel is just off the strip but offers convenient access to all that Las Vegas has to offer. There is direct access to great shopping/ eating and offers easy access to Planet Hollywood Casino/ Resort. This hotel has a nice pool area that offers excellent service. The security at this hotel is pretty intense so make sure you have... More

I am a Hilton Honors Diamond member because I stay in a ton of hilton properties every year. They called and asked if we wanted to purchase a room in vegas for $49/night. We were going to Vegas that week and figured it would be great. The hotel is in a great location and is beautiful. However the catch was... More

Stayed last week for a convention. Great property. There is no casino in the hotel, which made the lobby area very quiet and a refreshing break from the Vegas madness. So if you are looking for a "quieter" stay - this is a great option. From the lobby you are in the Miracle Mile Shopping area in about 30 seconds... More

They try to force you into talking to the time share vultures. Just walk on by the desks after registration unless you are interested in getting a timeshare. After staying here I am VERY happy to have missed that "opportunity". Business Center: -two of the chairs wouldn't raise up from the lowest position. -Printer rarely works and they send you... More

Pros - huge rooms with everything you need, full kitchen, microwave, dishwasher, frig with ice maker, coffee maker, dishes, silverware, lots of nice amenities. We were in a 1 bedroom suite on the 50th floor. Had a large living room with wrap around red leather couch, had 2 very comfy chairs, projection tv (which is a little confusing) and lots... More

If your answer is yes, than this hotel is centralized on the strip for you. We visited Vegas for the Mayweather v Maidana fight and just left yesterday. Pros: Check in was swift, no line Ask for as many towels as you like for the pool. The pool servers are everywhere so don't worry about slow service...they will get you... More

From the moment I arrived till I checked out I was impressed. The staff was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The room was very clean and comfortable. Next time I am in Las Vegas I will be staying at Elara again.

My stay at the Elara was short but not so sweet. Housekeeping did not fix the room during my two-day stay so I ran low on soap and towels. Furthermore, I did not like the 10:00 a.m. checkout time. I also had to sit through a timeshare presentation which was not fun and not recommended (even in exchange for a... More
