Most of my reviews are business related. This was a couple days vacation and my bride's first trip to Las Vegas. The facility is very nice, technically not on the strip but really, you walk from the hotel into a mall and you are right on the strip. The best location of any Hilton property.
This is a hotel and Grand Vacation Property, so there are a variety of rooms. We had a 2 room suite, the first a large living room with a good Kitchenette area. The 2nd, was a fair sized bedroom with a large jacuzzi tub. Both rooms had floor to ceiling glass windows looking out to the strip.
If there is anywhere in the world that knows how to pamper guests it is Las Vegas and that is understood here as well. But I have to say I was really irked that I had to pay $9.99 for 24 hours of wifi. Really? They aren't making enough with room rates? Even as a Silver Hilton Honors member they had no way to waive the charge. I've stayed at Hilton properties less than half what this was and they include wifi (and breakfast). Our cell phones, (Verizon) had very poor coverage in our rooms so even looking up shows or directions was not an option with out the internet.
Valet Parking is $15/day, but there is free self parking behind the hotel.
We did a couple shows, one booked by the concierge, we got a modest discount, but did much better buying tickets from one of the discount kiosks on the strip. Be flexible and you can get a great deal.
We enjoyed our time and would consider staying there again.
