The location of the hotel was about a Half Mile to the Beginning of the Strip.
Good location, great staff, good breakfast!
It is walkable, but if you aren't use to walking around then don't since you end up doing a ton of walking once you get to the strip and in each hotel. It is across a major highway but its doable. We walked in the night once and once in the day. Walking in the night is like walking in any city at night. Most people can do it and others think its not a good idea.
I definitely wanted to review the shuttle, because this is what we mainly used to get around and I didn't find detailed information on it when I read previous reviews.
The shuttle runs at the top of each hour only (not on call). It does not go to any hotel on the strip, it only goes to the Doubletree Tropicana which is at the Beginning of the Strip about a half mile away (which is walkable) It also does not do return trips, so we had to take cabs back or walk, which I did not know until I got there. I assume its because Vegas and the Strip can be hectic picking up people. There is a monorail entrance in the MGM Grand that is across from the Doubletree Tropicana, which we used when we wanted to go to the other end of the strip.
We had to call the shuttle once we arrived at the airport. We arrive about 10pm - they told me the pickup would be 10:30p, but arrived about 11:20pm. So the wait was quite some time. (the only reason i did not score excellent for a hampton)
Other then that the Bartenders in the Lobby were extremely friendly along with all the front office staff. Also the shuttle drivers were beyond great!
I definitely may return if I visit Vegas again, and would recommend the location for anyone especially if you are a frequent Hilton Traveler and did not want to pay the higher rates at the Tropicana or Elara.
