I have read some of the negative reviews on here about the Elara and I can honestly say my experience couldn't be further from them. From the moment you walk into the Elara it has a different feel to the other hotels in Vegas because it does not have a casino of its own. Therefore there is no through traffic and there is much more of a relaxed atmosphere. The reception staff were extremely helpful and the check in process was swift. We were then pleasantly surprised that when we moved to the elevators where there was a member of staff swiping key cards to ensure that you were actually a resident. This filled us with confidence that no undesirables would be around. When we entered the room it most certainly had the wow factor. We upgraded to a 1 bedroom king suite and requested a high floor. We got the 56th floor which is one of the newly renovated floors since Hilton took over the property from Westgate. The rooms were huge with excellent facilities and were tastefully decorated. The view of the strip, red rock canyon and the fountains of the Bellagio were outstanding. Housekeeping did everything that were required of them and if those who complained about towels and sheets not being changed observed what they were required to do to facilitate this, then housekeeping would not need to look into their crystal balls! The pool was a very pleasant sanctuary where the poolside service was excellent. All in all, after staying in various hotels on the strip including the Bellagio, I can honestly say the Elara wins hands down so much so that we are looking to rebook next year.
