“Nice property off the strip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

My husband and I own a Hilton timeshare on the Las Vegas strip. This was our first time staying in the location at the Convention Center. Initially we were underwhelmed. There is no valet parking--it's all self parking in the huge lot out in front. The good news is that we were usually able to find a parking space fairly close to the entrance, so a minus turned into a plus as we saved on the valet parking fees. The lobby is small and feels sort of closed off. It's not grand and open like most Hiltons we have stayed at. We were a bit worried about the state of the suites upon seeing the lobby.

Fortunately, the suites live up to the quality of the Hilton timehshares. We had a one-bedroom suite with a full kitchen, living area with pullout sofa, master bedroom with jacuzzi bath, and bathroom with a shower and two sinks. The rooms were nicely decorated in earth tones, good quality furniture, granite countertops and above-average appliances. The room was equipped with a stacked washer/dryer which I always find convenient as we can pack a lot less and still stay in clean clothes throughout our trip. Toiletries like shampoo and soap were supplied and were of decent quality. They also gave us a daily newspaper which was a nice touch.

The biggest issue with the property is that it is quite a ways off the strip. You either need to take taxis or have a rental car without question. On the other hand, if you like it quiet and peaceful, this is definitely a good spot in Las Vegas. Overall, we had a really nice stay at this Hilton and would reserve a room here again.

We stayed there for one night before taking an early flight out of Las Vegas.
What I liked about the hotel is that it is very quiet, and the rooms were really good. Honestly, for the price you pay, I think it is a cool place. Our room was great, with a nice view and very comfortable beds. The swimming pool is also quite nice.
However, keep in mind you are not on the strip, a bit away from the animation.
Everything was on par or above the Hilton Standards!

If traveling with family or a large party this is a great choice. Suites are roomy and well appointed if you want to stay in a cook up a meal. Staff is very friendly and gives the place a homey feel. Fitness center is very basic. Food choices on site are also basic, but hey, this is Vegas and restaurants elsewhere abound. This is a quite retreat, but close to the fun, and Paradise Road is a lot easier to navigate than the Blvd. to get around.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms with adjoining doors as the sound comes through those doors.

This is a nice quiet stay in Vegas. If you are traveling with children or just want something that doesn't require you to walk through a smoke filled lobby, then this is the perfect hotel. It was so nice after visiting the casino hotels to go back and relax at a hotel that was smoke free and quiet. The pool is nice and large and has a beautifully covered hot tub. And it was great having large pool tools! There is a cafe/store on the lobby level that had wonderful fresh salads, sandwiches, shrimp cocktails, wine, beer, etc. All was very reasonably priced, too. The only negative was the king studio suite was a bit small and the bathroom was VERY tiny! Overall, it was a great hotel.

Room Tip: If you stay on a high floor, poolside, you will get an awesome view of the Vegas Strip!

If your goal is to stay in Vegas away from the smoke and alcohol filled casinos, look no further then this Hilton Grand vacations(HGV) on Karen Ave.

This HGV is located next to old LVH and nestled between a few tall buildings. This HGV with 15+ floors is the shortest hotel building off Paradise Ave. No Airport pickup is offered by HGV. Location off Paradise means you have to take a cab, but I would recommand renting a car.
Monorail is about half a mile away. And there are city buses on Paradise Ave.

Front desk staff is very professional and courteous. Early checkin and late checkout were no problem. Room had a mini kitchen, and is very well designed. So laidback is the design, that there is no work area in the room. Want to use your laptop? Sit on the couch, and use the coffee table.

This is a family hotel: No smoking, no alcohol. This means you do not have drunk, loud, rowdy, youngsters hanging around the pool area: Very nice. Exercise room is great, so are the playroom and quiet room . Free internet, Free Parking, no resort fee. But astute travelers will realize the HGV is not as cheap as staying at an onstrip, midlevel casino. This HGV is defnitely worth the price.

Room Tip: Choose Even number rooms for the best views.

Booked this hotel thru RCI and stayed Dec 1-8th in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit. Checkin was not available at 12:30pm, so went shopping for groceries at nearby Albertson, east on Sahara, corner of S Maryland Parkway. Had lunch at a Mcd's and came back to hotel about 3pm. No problem checking in and had requested a high floor away from elevators and vending machines. Was accomodated with no problem on the 16th floor on end 2 units. Condo came with all the amenities. Only 2 king beds in the bedrooms, but also had 2 pullout couches for those in need. Free Wifi was a plus. USA today delivered to your door every morning. Full kitchen for cooking, in unit washer/dryer. Flat screen TV's, 3 of them. One person hot tub in the 1 bedroom. Only issue was with the fan in the one bathroom...would not turn off. Just closed door for reduced noise. Stand up shower was nice with good flow and pressure. Grab handles for those in need. 2 bathroom sinks. Large closet with mini safe. Granite countertops all round. Each of 3 rooms had individual climate controls. View from the room was facing north...towards downtown and Stratoshere. 3 main elevators were very fast and efficient. Hotel had outdoor small pool, the 2 hot tubs were unfortunately extremely small, maybe fit 3 people per. Grounds very well maintained. Used 1 of the 2 outdoor bbq's...utensils at the mini store, where you can buy any necessities needed. Games room with a few games, borrow dvds, ping pong table and pool table. Large and comfortable business center where you can print your boarding passes, read, lounge around. Small but well maintained fitness room. Welcome desk...for info, questions....never bothered about timeshare sales which was bonus. All staff were very friendly and professional. Free outdoor parking. Would have to say this is a great hotel, just a couple of blocks off the strip with no casino. Great stay, and would recommend to everyone, whether on business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Request high floor, away from elevators and vending machines

I can't say enough great things about this hotel. If you want a relaxing and quiet stay off the strip in a clean, modern, beautiful, spacious hotel, this is for you.

The 1-bedroom suites are huge with full-sized, very well-equipped kitchens and a washer and dryer. The jetted tub is huge and relaxing. There is excellent sound-proofing in the room. Big flat panel TV's with many different technology inputs. Modern design. Everything is new. Large bathroom and plenty of closet space.

Staying here is like having your own modern, in-city apartment. The location is the only negative if you're more interested in being in the middle of Las Vegas action. Also, it's in a somewhat sketchy neighborhood near the Convention Center. I wouldn't take any late-night strolls.

Nice pool area with a big, modern barbecue you can use.

The Peter Thomas Roth bath products and amenities provided are wonderful. Even the shampoo and conditioner, which are usually dismal at most hotels.

I highly recommend it for someone who wants peace and quiet and to just feel like you're at home away from home.

Room Tip: If you're a Hilton Honors member, you can find great deals (AAA rates are great as well). Look f...
