Besides location, this resort was like a "home away from home" for me. My favorite things that my one-bedroom unit offered me were a beautiful view of the pool and gardens, fully equipped kitchen, whirlpool hot tub in my bedroom, and very comfortable seating and sleeping accommodations. I would recommend this one to anyone who asked me.
Other than accommodations, the staff and management here were "world class." My toilet had stopped up and I called down to the front desk to get a repairman. "He'll be there in just a few minutes," she said. Not even 5 minutes later, I heard a knock on my door. I was amazed at how fast and efficient the staff really was. Speaking of, the day after I had checked in to my unit, I had a call on the telephone from the concierge service asking me to come down for a "welcome meeting." I figured they wanted to give me a timeshare presentation, but decided to go anyhow to see what they were offering. To my delight, there was no timeshare pitch, but a book full of coupons and vouchers for free food and gaming for different hotels on the Strip! I was very happy and used every last one of the coupons I could throughout my stay.
I just have to say that I plan on visiting every single Hilton property RCI offers, as I know that I will get treated like royalty!!

We took the tour to the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon, and even though you spend 10 hours on a bus, it is well worth the trip. Seeing the Grand Canyon is breathtaking. They also give you free lunch and plenty of time for shopping at little gift shops. The casinos are amazing-just walk along the strip and stop at the Bellagio for the water show, The Mirage for the volcano eruptions, and see the beauty of the Venetian, which is truly an amazing sight.
We also went to see the Cirque du Soleil show. That was great!!! There are so many things to do in Vegas that you need more than one visit. I am looking forward to going back soon to see anything I missed the first time around.

The Lobby floor also has a little store with food, incidentals, magazines, outrageously priced wine, and a deli/ice cream treat area. The store opens about 7am, but if you are an early riser and wish room service, you can order breakfast delivered to your room before then. Ground floor also had a nice gathering room with a pool table, large TV/conversation area with comfortable chairs, plus small tables with chairs.
Las Vegas blocks are long, but you can walk the two or three blocks to the Strip and then pick up a bus that runs up and down the Strip - including going to old Downtown (Fremont Street). The bus runs every 6 - 10 minutes, 24 hours a day, and costs $1 for those over 62 (be prepared to show your ID) and $2 for the younger folk. It stops in front of every major hotel/casino and is much more convenient than fighting the traffic on the Strip (sometimes the bus is quite crowded, but will empty out in a couple of stops).
The Hilton Hotel/Casino (on the other side of a six story car garage that both facilities use and further away from the Strip) has several very nice restaurants. We especially enjoyed the Italian one. The Star Trek casino area is off-beat and rather fun for a while (and the bathrooms are wild - holograms - and the men's have self-flushing and talking urinals).
We really didn't spend much time in our place, but it was a lovely base in which to relax and regroup for the next outing.

There was thick dust covering everything, and the blankets and bedspread were dirty, looking as though they had not been cleaned in months. The carpet was so dirty my grandson and granddaughter's clothes and feet got black from walking around barefoot and playing on the floor. The windows were also so dirty you could hardly see out them.
To add insult to injury we had to wait over an extra hour past our scheduled check-in time so they could "clean" the room. Then when we checked out they charged me a cleaning fee of $20 because we only stayed five days instead of seven.
When my wife and I addressed the room condition to the desk staff. They showed no concern and were generally rude about it. The staff also appeared to treat us with disdain because we were RCI members and not Hilton owners.
Just a note that this is the HGVC next to the Hilton, not the new one next to Circus Circus. Hopefully the new one will be better.

If we go back again, we will not go to the timeshare presentations. They say the presentation will take about 90 minutes – well, that turned into 3 hours. It took all day and then ended up with bad tickets to a boring show as a reward. Oh, well! They gave us a coupon booklet to use, but it's a good idea to read the fine print because most of the coupons didn’t offer much of a special discount. Overall, the room was great, but the extras didn't amount to much.

The staff was cheerful and very helpful.
We had originally booked a second bedroom for our guests but did not need it, as our one-bedroom unit was very comfortable and had a good sleeper sofa in the living room. It is unfortunate that a 40-story building is being built beside the resort, as I'm sure it will block the afternoon sun from the swimming pools.
