“First time Guest at the Elara”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

The suites were really nice. They were still upgrading most and if you got one of the old ones they were not as nice as the upgraded one. Having to pay for Wifi in a hotel, especially one as high class as this one is not good. No separate parking garage, must share with the Mall. Hotel valet is almost a must. You can walk out the hotel and into the mall without going outside. Convenient to the strip and all it features. Did not use the pool as we were the in October. Handicap parking in the garage is poor as slots are for the people using the mall. Like the full kitchens, spa in the bedroom, dishwashers, and washing machine. But don't use the washing machine as it takes over two hours from start to finish.

Room Tip: Try for an upgraded suite. I rated kids activities but had not children with us. Also there is not...

Stayed 3 nights in a one bedroom suite with an awesome view of the strip from the 50th floor...partial view of the Bellagio's fountain show.

From check in to check out the service was excellent. The bellman quickly unloaded the car, gave us a claim check and said call me as soon as you get to the room and I'll bring your bags. From call to delivery was no more than 5 minutes...unheard of. He even showed us around the room.

The room was clean, with the exception of some very smelly pillows. The previous occupant must have had some serious BO for those pillows to smell like that. Called housekeeping and all was remedied. In fact, each call to housekeeping for trash removal and extra coffee were handed quickly with extra-friendly staff.

Elara is very centrally located to the Strip. I don't know why previous reviewers said it was a "long walk". It's actually a shorter walk than if you stayed at one of the hotel/casinos on the Strip and had to hike from your room, through a smoke-filled casino and down a long walkway.

Highly recommend Elara.

We loved Elara it was the best hotel by far on our American trip the bed was huge the room was quite large with kitchen and a 24/7 Starbucks right in the lobby,
They took into consideration my likes/dislikes on my Hhonors account so we ended up with a great view from the 52nd floor.
Step into the lobby and you walk directly into Planet Hollywood shopping complex there is food, cloths anything you really need - you almost dont have to leave the building but if you do your centre on the strip to almost anything - Highly recommend this Hilton and there security .

We loved it - Thank you

Had a great stay at the Elara. Our room was on the 53rd floor with a great view of the strip - couldn't have asked for a better view. Room was spacious and comfortable with the all-important coffee maker - essential for waking up in Vegas. There's even a 24 hr Starbucks in the lobby as backup. The proximity to Planet Hollywood is perfect - just close enough to go gamble if you feel like it but just far enough away to not lose your shirt. But if you do, you can get a new one in the attached Miracle Mile Shops!

I really don't know why anyone complained about this hotel. All the staff we encountered were extremely friendly. The location is great. The room was great. Housekeeping was great. We went for a time share presentation. We did not buy and felt no pressure to purchase. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It was nice to have a sink, fridge and microwave in the room. We had an awesome view out of the floor to ceiling windows.

The staff was very courteous from making the reservations, to checking in and out and making new room keys every time I lost them. The security was great and everyone was friendly. Great Bathtub in the room! Everything was clean and comfortable. Location was great with a mall right next door and the strip right through Planet Hollywood

The Elara hotel is just off the Las Vegas strip connected to Planet Hollywood through the Miracle Mile shops. This hotel is beautifully done with modern rooms. We had a two king suite and both bedrooms were sizable with a whirlpool in the master. They were connected through a large living area with a full kitchen. Neither couple was disappointed with their rooms. The central room had a full size movie screen on the window shades. The staff was very friendly and not pushy since this is a Hilton time share property as well as a hotel. All and all a wonderful weekend stay with friends.

Room Tip: Above the 17th floor or the view will be compromised by surrounding hotels. We could see the airpor...
