The property shares a wonderful pool with the Flamingo Hotel and also provides a members only pool for HGVC guest. This property is about 11 years old and appeared to be undergoing some renovations. Beds were comfortable and staff was friendly. They had a breakfast for owners on Monday morning, a great chance to talk with other owners. We had a one-bedroom that overlooked the pool area.
The parking garage located nearby worked out great. Valet parking was only $6, but we chose to self-park. Traffic around the Strip is always congested, so walking is the preferred method. Also, the monorail station is right on the property, so there's a great way to move around if the walking is too much.
Our next visit will be at the HGVC on the Strip, located north of Circus Circus. We toured this property, and it was very nice as well. I would gladly stay at HGVC at the Hilton again, another fine property. I can almost always find a room in Vegas with HGVC.

When we arrived at the hotel, we entered into a beautiful marble lobby with the reception desk to the right and the elevators to the left. Straight in front of you was a staircase that took you to the gym and a small marketplace where you could purchase sandwiches and pizzas. It’s nothing over the top, but if you are hungry, it works.
Our room was on the 16th floor. As you entered this one-bedroom suite, you found a kitchen to your left with a dishwasher, full-size refrigerator, stove and oven, microwave, and coffeemaker. The one thing I didn’t like in here was the washer and dryer, which were behind pantry doors but still in the kitchen. Just beyond that was a glass-top table with four chairs and a living room that housed a couch, a chair with a footstool, a flat panel TV, and a DVD player. To the right of the entry is a large bathroom with duel sinks and a shower big enough for two people in the corner. Just beyond the bathroom was the Jacuzzi tub for two that divided the bathroom and the bedroom. In the bedroom there was a king-size bed along with another chair, footstool, and a TV. Both the living room and the bedroom had big picture windows that looked out over the Strip. The room was decorated in desert tones, with black marble counters in both the bathroom and the kitchen. It was done very tastefully.
Because we got this great deal, we were also tied to a timeshare presentation. It really is the last thing you want to do, but for the deal, I would do it again. They try to sell you on the property pretty much. The pool area here is beautiful, too. It houses two pools with fountains going into it, along with a hot tub. Eventually, you will be able to have breakfast at the pool. Because this is a vacation club, they do not serve alcohol or have gaming. They do not even have a restaurant. But the restaurants of the Strip are easy to get to. You can get to these either by a taxi ($10 one-way from the hotel to Paris) or walk across to the Sahara and catch the monorail. If you want to save a bit of money, check this place out.

We cooked in several nights to make it easy on my 85 year old father - the kitchen was reasonably equiped and easy to use.
We also spent several afternoons enjoying the lovely swimming pools. They keep one warm, and the other cool - so you can pick your favorite.
For the kids (and the kid in us all) there's even a small water playground with sprouting jets. The location is at the far North of the strip - really close to the Convention center - but in July - not walking distance to the main action. But we had a car - and free parking is readily available - so that was no problem.
Bottom line - very nice place, lovely holiday. Ample privacy, but nice and comfortable.
Only thing lacking was an on-site restaurant and an activity program. But the pool bar and grill made up for that lack - and there's a wonderful little grocery/deli that we loved in the basement. Good food, reasonable prices, and easy going.
