We recently stayed at this Hilton in Las Vegas. I frequently stay at Hilton hotels and am a platium member. This hotel had veery nice rooms (about standard for what I would expect from a Hilton). However, saying it is "on" the strip is not entirely accurate. It is is near the Riviera and Circus Circus hotel/casinos - both of which are among the older and more run-down casinos. The remainder of the strip #Caesar's, Wynn, Encore, Mirage, etc# are not within walking distance. A lot of time is spent in cabs or a rental car getting to most of the attractions. Hotels directly in the heart of Vegas cost the same, or less, and are in a much better location. This hotel is part of a Hilton time share #Grand Vacations#. This wouldn't be a problem - but you are subjected to a sales pitch on check in. You are also subjected to a flashing-light phone message every evening - which, again, advertises the time share tours. Lastly, housekeeping seems to arrive late and one day they did not show up at all #our "do not disturb" sign was never put on the door#. I frequently need to travel to Las Vegas for conferences. I do not plan to stay at the Hilton Grand Vacations hotel again.
