“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The one bedrooms suites have everything you need frm a washer/dryer to a dishwasher. Very spacious in every aspect. Beats the double room hotels by far and at a cheaper rate. The staff are kind n friendly and will do anything for you. Food is fabulous and poolside service is worth every penny. Make sure you get in the right lift as you may end up in a different part of the hotel. Gym is good and also use of the computers in the business suite. I feel they should offer free wifi which is possibly the only complaint I have

This was our first time staying at Elara. We've been to Las Vegas many times and usually stay at Palazzo Hotel or Bellagio. We were very pleasantly surprised at how nice the rooms were at Elara after arriving on a hot day in June. It's directly connected to the Planet Hollywood mall and shares their parking ramp. There is no need to walk outside since Elara is easily accessible through Planet Hollywood's mall. It's a smoke free hotel with NO casino but that's what we liked best about it. Planet Hollywood's casino is less than two minutes walk away and also accessed without having to go outside. Elara is a condo-hotel and it's now owned by Hilton Grand Vacations. It's a great place for families.

It was very nice stay, and I recommended to everybody I work with. It was not a typical bland Hilton room, but had a better style and personality. I originally paid for junior suite, that was pretty nice and big enough, but when we went into the room, room was not clean, so they upgraded to regular suite. Regular suite had a big kitchen, 4 TV plus projector, surround sound system, washer & dryer, spa tub right next to bed. We can live there, felt very comfortable. If your're wondering if you should stay at Jr suite or regular suite, if price is way higher, Jr suite is nice & big enough for 2 people. Projector is nice to look at, but not really necessary, and unless you're staying there for long time, who wants to cook in Las Vegas? The main reason why I chose this hotel was No Resort Fee and free regular parking instead of valet parking (optional) If you want to use internet, it'll coast you $10, but at least you have a choice, not mandatory. Parking is at Miracle shop mall, and the building is connected to the mall, so it was convenient. Earls sandwich was pretty good and cheap. I would recommend to bring coffee and creamer since there is a coffee machine. We like this location, less than 10-15 min walk to Mirage or Cesar Palace for shows. No casino, No smoking, so if you're looking for partying all night long in the hotel, this is not for you. We would definately stay there again. We loved it!!

I booked this hotel not knowing it is actually a time share property, it is located adjacent to Planet hollywood. The rooms are big with a full srvice kitchen i presume all rooms have this. The nice thing is it does not have a casino, but you are not far away from one. The swimming pool is excellent, I also appreciate a person at the elevator entrance checking room keys. You are only yards away from the miricle mile shops and bars and resteraunts. Thw only thing i would warn about is they charge an astronical fee to Valet park. oveall a great place to stay.

Room Tip: you must get a king bed

Our experience with Elara was really good. We first got a room with a terrible view (of the parking lot), but this could easily be changed to another room with a view of the Eiffel tower.

The room was oke, we had a kingsize studio, I was hoping for a jacuzzi but this only comes with the suites I guess. The bed was superb, haven't had better anywhere.

Elara is just a very quiet hotel (compared to the chaos of Vegas) which is located really well - center strip. I also love that it can be accessed through Miracle Mile shopping center because there you can find lots of affordable restaurants which are really good.

Pro's
- Location
- Price
- Non-chaotic
- Bed
- Free parking (park at the third floor on Miracle Mile self parking)

Cons
- Pay for wi-fi (and you can only use it through one device at a time)
- Some rooms have a really bad view

As a family with two kids (13+9) we had a one bedroom suite on the 37th floor. This was simply great. For saving time we took advantage of the fully equipped kitchen and we had breakfast in the room. We had also a very good view to the strip. From the hotel foyer you are accessing right into the miracle mile facilities, with lots of restaurants and shops. Access to the strip is less than 10 minutes and you are directly in the middle of everything. Staff is very friendly (as usual in Las Vegas). Valet parking is not necessary since the parking facilities have easy access to the hotel via miracle mile.

This was one of the best values I have received for a hotel-room.

My wife and I recently completed a stay at this all-suite hotel with two other couples. We booked a 2 bedroom premier suite and were given an upgrade to one of the 2 Bedroom Penthouse suites - which were Massive and had an amazing shaded sunroom extending off the side of the building. I was told this was not due to my HHonors Gold Status, but rather because we are HGVC owners, booked a 2-bedrrom suite and they were near occupancy. Besides being assigned a room that had the safety lock engaged from inside the room, check-in was a breeze. We also took advantage of a $150 restaurant voucher offer in exchange for attending a 90-min Hilton Grand Vacations sales prestation. We also had a minor issue with the wall-mounted TV and projection system in the living room, but it was quickly (15mins) addressesd by the maintenance team. The location of the hotel itself is great (mid-strip, just behind Planet Hollywood) and connects to the Planet Hollywood (PH) Shops (indoor mall) - which allows you to easily walk out to the strip. The hotel doesn't have any restaurant options besides room service and Starbucks in the lobby, but there are plenty of decent options just past the hotel lobby and insdie the PH Shops. The gym at the hotel was a decent size, but could've stood to be a tad bit bigger given that every morning most of the workout equipment (treadmills/elipticals) were in-use. My group didn't use the pool, but it definitely looked nice walking past it everyday, and it certainly wasn't as overcrowded as some of the other Vegas resorts tend to be. The hotel also provides an added sense of safety for guests by posting a security guard at the elevators 24/7 to scan your room key before allowing you (and your group) to use the elevators. If/when we return to Vegas, we'll likely be staying here!!!

Room Tip: Request a floor upgrade....the higher the floor the better the view of the entire strip!
