The consistency of the Hilton Grand Vacations line of hotels has been exceptional experience for us. They all have been very clean, secure with up excellent amenities. We recently stayed at the Hilton Grand Vacations Elara and found it to be the same, but with some unique differences.
First, the hotel was apparently taken over by Hilton for unknown reasons. It has a very trendy architecture to the hotel (in/out) and from that perspective it is quite different that other Grand Vacation properties we have stayed at.
Hilton has renovated the rooms of this property and their finished product is second to none. The suite I stayed in was about $190.00 per night. It could have been rented for twice that amount due to its condition and amenities.
My suite had five (5) TV's. One of which was a projection TV system that was viewed on the automated roll down window shade, that was approximately 12' in length; truly incredible. There was a hot tub in the master bedroom and a glass shower/phone/tv in the bathroom.
There was a lunch type counter in the kitchen that sat four (4) people (also a frig/cooktop).
Furnishings looked brand new and the view of the strip from the 36th floor was "great." That had indirect lighting in the suite which gave a cool vibe to the suite.
We rented a cabana at the pool for $100.00 with a $100.00 food minimum. Truly worth it. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent.
I will be going back. You can't go wrong at the Elara. It was truly was "Grand."
