We had upgraded our Westgate Flamingo Bay timeshare to the Hilton Grand Elara during the management transition (it used to be the Westgate PH Towers). This was our first stay at this property, and we were quite pleased. Every aspect of customer service was exceptional—from valet parking to hotel registration to hotel elevator security to housekeeping. All of the staff... More

I will definitely return to this hotel. After reading some reviews I was a little leery of booking here. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The rooms are very spacious. The views amazing. We sat and watched the water show at the bellagio from our couch. It is located in a great spot within walking distance to everything you... More

I am a solo traveller and I found the Elara to be perfect for me. I was greeted warmly and upgraded to a beautiful room with a gob smacking view. Great little kitchen also. I think throughout my entire journey this was the best bed I had ever slept on. The hotel was safe and clean. The Strip was close... More

We stayed in a mini suite on the 55th floor (really the 45th floor since there are no floors beginning with "4") facing North. The room was great and the view was the best we have ever had. We really did enjoy the view very much. The problem is trying to get a good night's sleep. At around 3:30 AM... More

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I do apologize for the noise you experienced so early in the morning. The construction that is going on across the street from us is just about completed, and believe me we are have happy about that. I also apologize for the loud music, we have a very tough noise policy here.... More

The Elara is a very nice and safe hotel . The security checks you each and every time you enter. The room was very nice and had a full width window and push button shade. The room had a good sized bathroom and shower. The kitchenette had all the items you could need including dishes and utensils. I had no... More

We have stayed at this location a few times now and enjoy what it offers compared to much of the rest in Vegas. There are multiple room types to choose from based on strip view and space needed. You are in the heart of the strip, across the street from City Centre and attached to the Miracle Mile Mall.

Let me start by saying if it wasn't for the following incident, I would really be in love with this hotel and would be rating this hotel a 5.

I appreciate your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. I am however disappointed regarding your room door being left ajar. It appears that your stay would have been a good one if not for the door incident. Your concern has been shared the Engineering Team and I do know they as well are very disappointed. Again thank you for... More

This grand location by hilton was nice if you want to be within easy walking distance of strip. It's a quiet place with good security, to get into your room you must have key scanned in lobby. Room had mini kitchenette, but I missed the usual hilton breakfast. There is a Starbucks in the lobby, but that's expensive. This would... More

I am a Westgate Owner and the Elara Hilton Las Vegas is my home base. The suite is lovely and new. I had the best shower ever. The whirlpool was just wonderful. Since I am an owner the price was very low but the quality was very high. I would recommend this to all. Great location and great quaility.
