I have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Elara. Just to be transparent, I am a Hilton Honors Silver member so I make great efforts to stay at Hilton properties based on their quality standards. Unfortunately this hotel was previously a Westgate Hotel therefore traditional Hilton building quality standards are not as strong. Due to the size... More

Thank you for your stay and constructive feedback on our Resort. There are some necessary changes that we are currently fixing in the property to bring it up to our high Hilton standards.

I chose the 1 bedroom suite. This room is quite impressive. A small kitchen and dining table as you walk through the door and then a corner suite sofa and chairs past that – with floor to ceiling windows. Bedroom has a Super King bed, with a chaise in a matching window. Next to the bed is a Jacuzzi tub... More

I went to Vegas on Spring Break for a girls' trip. We don't enjoy gambling, so we came to Vegas for the food, shows, and sun! The Elara isn't on the strip, but it was simple to walk through the Miracle Mile Shops to access Las Vegas Blvd. The location along the strip is very close to center so it... More

The staff are great in all areas - genuine, articulate, informative and fun. Standouts are Ray at Reception, Ashley at the information desk, and Anthony greeting us, on the way to lift. Walking into our room as a jaw dropping treat. A pair of 50 something's running around like teenagers going "check this out" at every little discovery. First night... More

I booked a room on line. There was a deposit required, but it showed up on my bill as a charge for Orlando. I travel enough and have had my credit card comprimised enough times that I disputed the chatge. It seems that Hilton Vacation accounting records are more important that clearly identifying the chatges for the customers I arrived... More

I am sorry that there was an issue with your billing and that it was not handled in a timely manner. We do charge the first night’s room and tax upon booking the reservation but it appears there were more issues than this that occurred. I trust that by now it has been resolved but if for some reason that... More

we stayed 5 nites in a 1 bedroom suite that was very spacious and could have easily slept another couple comfortably. Great modern, whole kitchen setup, large jacuzzi bathtub, huge bathroom, spectacular views, nice furniture, electronic climate control and window shades.

Myself and my three boys were astonished at our one bedroom suite. It was very rock n roll with a hottub, huge red leather settee, a projector TV about ten feet wide, floor to ceiling windows with views of the strip and beyond, a full kitchen, and enough space for some football keepy-uppy practice. This was about $150, pre-paid in... More
