“Elara, Hilton Grand Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Excellent. Would recommend the hotel to anyone going to Las Vegas. Location to the strip was great. The suite very spacious and clean. My family loved the projector/tv feature. Excellent value for the money.

We stayed here for 2 nights - this is roughly in the centre of the Strip but has no resort tax or parking fees as there is no casino attached. That said, you walk out of the hotel lobby into the Miracle Mile shops and Planet Hollywood casino so there is plenty to do, The rooms are huge, the beds massive and the views spectacular with floor to ceiling windows. Well placed to explore the rest of the Strip yet a nice, quiet place to sleep. Lovely to have a kitchenette to warm up doggy bags as the restaurant meals are huge!

Room Tip: Odd numbers face the Strip, even numbers face the airport

Had an absolute blast at this hotel. I went with 5 of my best friends for my birthday and we rented the 2 KING BD 2-BDRM STE PREMIER-KITCHEN-SOFABED ( sorry just copy and pasted it). It was absolutely beautiful, way larger than the pictures give it credit for. The staff were extremely helpful, there was security by the elevators at all times and the rooms were very clean. It is right behind Planet hollywood which is essentially in the center of the strip. For the price it is completely worth it. We booked it simply because we needed a hotel that could accommodate 5 but I can't believe how well it worked out for us! Definitely give it a try it is the best new hotel in vegas and you barely spend time in your room anyway so for the price go for it!

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view!

We stayed 4 nights at the Elara and other then our room being unusually warm it was perfect! Being connected to the Planet Hollywood shops made getting onto the main strip incredibly easy! Great food, shops, and casinos right at your finger tips! The rooms were always clean and the staff extremely helpful with anything we had a question about. Upgrading our room was easy and a great deal for anywhere in vegas! Will definetely be staying there again!!

We stayed at the Elara from July 18-28, 2013. My husband was in town for a trade show. The hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were clean, and nicely decorated.The bed was very comfortable. There are no restaurants at the Elara except Starbucks, but there are many to choose from in PH. The hotel is in a great location. It was nice to be able to go into PH to gamble, but come back to the Hilton for a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. We would stay here again.

Was able to secure a 3-bedroom suite for friends doing early b-day celebrations in late July 2013. Was a great stay! The master bedroom was amazing!!! The views were awesome; black-out shades were a plus, though I kept them up most of the time. I enjoyed sitting on chaise lounger looking out at Las Vegas Boulevard and watching the cute scrolling messages at Cosmopolitan. Close enough to the strip and bridges to hop over to Aria or down to the Miracle Mile shops.

The pool was nice especially with owner access to the cabanas. Wind/sandstorms closed down the pool a couple times during my short stay, so glad I made it by on my first day. The washer/dryer, stovetop & microwave/oven, & fridge were all used during my short stay. That shower in the master was life!!! Hated to come home to my bathroom after experiencing the Elara's shower.

Will definitely stay here again.
