Trouble free stay!
I stayed during the week of July 4th, 2011. They had great festivities including fireworks and a party by the pool. The hotel has a gift shop and a few stores including a pizza hut and ice cream store for a quick bite to eat. They also had a coffee shop where you could also buy wine. My room was nice and clean and in good shape. This was a trouble free hotel stay.
Unique Quality: Great pool, gift shop, coffee shop, and a pizza hut for a quick bite to eat.
Directions: On the strip
The Las Vegas Hilton is huge, has lots of food and entertainment options, fun casino space and nice meeting rooms. I was here for a conference that was held at the hotel. The room was recently updated and very comfortable. When asking for directions inside the hotel, every message starts with go through the casino. The hotel is on the Las Vegas Monorail, but otherwise a little isolated. It is half a mile or so off the north end of the Strip, and the North end of the Strip is kind of a dead zone. I used the monorail to pop down to the middle or south end of the strip - giving me great access to the latest entertainment, restaurants and casinos. Shop for rates, the conference rate was $79 - but the night after the conference they wanted $180 - I changed hotels and found something nice for $65 at the other end of the strip.
Unique Quality: Next to the Las Vegas Convention Center. The Monorial station is in front of the hotel.
Do Not Stay Here
I recently stayed at the Las Vegas Hilton with a conference I attended. I was told when I booked my room I was going to receive a $100 coupon. At check out I was charged for the gift card. Even after I presented the hotel with the document stating the hotel was going to give me the coupon I was still charged for it. I tryed to contact Hilton and have been ignored. I would never stay at the Las Vegas Hiton again and I would advise anyone not to stay here. They have the worst customer service I have ever experienced.
The original where Elvis had his residency
This was a 2 night stay in our 4 nights in Las Vegas, and where we were picked up in the morning by the limo and spent our wedding night that night.
A few Hilton properties and franchises around Las Vegas, this was the original where Elvis had his residencyfrom1968 to his death in 1977.
Check the website and elsewhere for deals, we got an excellent deal at US$99 a night.

Unique Quality: Hmmm.. uniqueness is not something all of the really big hotel chains are big on, but it has got to be the statue of Vrgas' famous adopted son, Elvis (see picture)
Directions: Just off the strip - level with Circus Circus or Riviera
RUN DOWN - SOME RUDE STAFF
The Las Vegas Hilton was a real let down.
Being "the Hilton" we thought it would be very nice. Our room was not properly clean, the arm chair was well worn to the stage it needed to be replaced. One thing that we really missed and had in cheaper Hotels, was the Tea & Coffee, the was NONE in the room. We love to get back and sit down and relax with one after a days outing. To buy a cup here was very expensive. No fridge.
Another problem was at the Luggage storage. I had received an email from them previous to our trip, advising it was ok to store luggage here while we did a tour, as we would be spending more nights here at the end. The person in charge denied this, and got VERY NASTY AND RUDE!
Silly me, didn't think to print out the email. I didn't expect any problem, there should not have been!
The Hotel is also not on the Strip, quite a walk. There is a monorail station there, but it becomes quite expensive using that every day.
I WOULD NOT EVER RECOMMEND THIS HILTON.
This person needed replacing, as did some of the furniture, in general, a refurbishing and sending this employee to do some training on how to be polite and deal with paying guests.
We have stayed at the Hilton several times over the last few years. It is a great hotel with reasonably priced rooms and casino minimums and not a lot of kids. Since this is a convention center hotel you get a good clean room for a great rate without kids running wild everywhere. We are not big gamblers but found that if we used our Hilton club card for the gambling we did we got lots of offers throughout the year for cheap room prices. Now we usually pay $50.00 a night even on weekends. Much better than other casinos programs that we have tried.
Unique Quality: Spa is great. We traveled with a group and rented a cabana by the pool. It came with a refrigerator full of drinks and a t.v. for those wanting the shade. The hotel is also right on the monorail line so you can get to most strip hotels quickly and the cab ride over to Fremont street is very reasonable.
Nice location next to Monorail
We upgraded to a fancy room ($225) which included a really nice bathroom and comfy bed with free internet, access to the members club, I-pod docking, free newspaper, unlimited local calls and free spa entry. We had a great view of the mountains from our room and a flat screen TV. Well worth the extra $$$$.
Unique Quality: Reminds me of the Westin hotels we usually stay at - modern and clean
the las vegas hilton is a large hotel located next to the las vegas convention center. it's location is away from the strip and i would not recommend it for tourists but if you are in las vegas on business and are attending the convention center it's location is perfect. a good business class hotel that caters to the convention trade.
Directions: convention center, east of the strip.
This is one of my favorite places to stay in Vegas. Not too expensive - for Vegas anyway - and always a good service. The only drawback of the hotel used to be its location as Hilton is located off-Strip but since the construction of the monorail, location is not a problem anymore. It has good rates almost all year and the rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. They have some good restaurants and the hotel's attraction is "Star Trek: The Experience" which we really enjoyed. It's located near Las Vegas' convention center so if you're going to Vegas for a convention this place
is your best bet.
Good value on the weekends
The Vegas Hilton is off of the main drag, about a block behind the Riviera. It runs about the same price range as Circus Circus and is an older hotel without the gimmicks. It has a nice casino and the rooms are comfortable and clean. When we stayed there, the Mirage was running a $99/night special Monday - Thursday. If they still do that, I would recommend staying at the Mirage throughout the week and then moving to the Hilton on the weekend if you are trying to stretch your money. That way, you can walk to the strip when it's crowded, but still get your car out pretty easily if you want to go somewhere.
Unique Quality: There is a decent buffet at this hotel, parking is free, and the casino is pretty much the same as what the other hotels have. The pool is a little more modest, but it is on a rooftop with a decent view and breeze.
Las Vegas Hilton (LVH)
One of the earliest megaresorts in LV, still good but not as fancy and entertaining as those new ones, e.g., MGM, Luxor, Mandalay Bay.
It is off the strip, luckily with Monorail station connected with the building.
Unique Quality: High profile musicals and shows are available in the hotel, e.g., Manilow, Diana Krall.
Directions: Paradise road, behind Riviera, close to the north end of the stip
Great hotel OFF the strip
We were only there 2 nights, but the rates were reasonable, food was great wherever we ate and it was easy to figure out where to go. (I never felt lost walking around that large hotel) The thing I would say is largely lacking is their gift shop. TERRIBLE! Small and impersonal. Other hotels we walked around in had huge, wonderful gift shops. But we would stay there again at the Hilton because it's off the strip so you aren't staring at Neon lights all the time. We toured a bunch of other hotels and used the monorail system. Very simple to use. Just get a 2-day pass and ride it as much as you want.
I would recommend this hotel. It was always clean and well kept. Our room was larger than most hotel rooms and the beds were very comfortable.
Unique Quality: We had a great view of a residential area, so it was nice. We did not want to be facing toward the strip. Nothing against the Strip, we didn't want to see it ALL the time. Did not use the pool because it was in the middle of December.
Directions: We took a shuttle, so I cannot explain how to get there. It was about a 20 minute ride from the airport to the hotel. The hotels are very close to the airport.
Las Vegas Hilton
The hilton was being remodeled the last time that I went there which was Jan 2006. The dining choices are not the best. The staff is courteous. I had a few problems with my room and reservation all of which were fixed promptly. Its an OK place to stay. There are places you can stay for the same price that are nicer and more centrally located. I was there for a convention so it was convenient. After remodeling it might be more cool. It has a decent sportsbook for betting. If you are younger such as myself staying more centrally located on the strip is more fun but if you are there to gamble etc.. its an acceptable place.
Unique Quality: Manilow plays there if you like him. StaR Trek Casino with an attached Star Trek restaraunt where you can meet some klingon and ferengie girls :) Access to the monorail system for quick travel to the other end of the strip.
Directions: Next to Riveria Hotel and Las Vegas Convention Center
Viva the Las Vegas... Hilton
We really enjoyed our stay at the LV Hilton September 05. The Room was big and clean, the price was right and we had a great view of the bright city lights from our high floor window facing the strip. The hotel was located a few blocks off the strip which was just right for us . - the monorail stopped at the hotel but we did not use it - as we had a rental car. Hotel facilities were in good condition and staff were friendly too-- Self parking was also very convenient to the hotelroom in comparison to several of the strip hotels we visited.
Unique Quality: Electric Drapes, glass elevator view , Star Trek Experience, Elvis`s ghost ?
Directions: Convention Centre
A Trekkie's Dreamplace
The Hilton is adjacent (not connected, but like 50 paces) to the convention center. If you're going here for a convention, I'd HIGHLY recommend this place. By the end of a long working day, the last thing you wanna do is stand in an hour-long line waiting for a cab to take your tired butt back to your hotel way over on The Strip.
The Hilton itself is undergoing a massive redecorating/remodeling process. The place is outdated; but in Vegas, anything 10-minutes-ago is "outdated". The rooms are 'roomy' and a home-away-from home. I liked the big ol bathtubs (jacuzzi-style!) and the AWESOME view of The Strip & the red mountains in the background!!!
The hotel chics will give you a map of the Hilton if ya ask for it; ask for it, but beware. It's like looking at a post-it note sized thingy with little colored blocks. The restaurants & bars INSIDE the Hilton are really something else. The casino? It's sorta smack-square in the center. And, freaking huge. If you don't lose your mind from all the flashing lights, you'll get lost and then lose your mind trying to find yourself and your path again.
I ordered so much room service there, it was unreal. Breakfast, delivered promptly and with a smile; they poured my coffee FOR me. So I was mighty impressed. Lunch came very quickly, while 1,000's of other Pack Expo grunts like myself were jam-packing into all the Hilton restaurants & the convention center restaurants, I went up to my room, high in the sky, & ordered the prompt, yummy, and very private room service!
The only downfall of the Hilton is... (and I hate to say this cuz normally I'm not picky about this), the BED. I talked to the other 9 people who stayed in the Hilton with me, and well everyone said the same thing; great service, great food, great PRICE ($179 a night!), but good GAWD those beds. If sleeping on a rock like Fred Flintstone used to do is your thing, then ok fine. Overtop of the rock-hard bed, there's a mirror; so you can make faces at yourself as you adjust to the rock-bed.
Unique Quality: The single-most important and reason-to-visit, reason-to-live thing about the Hilton is the Star Trek "area". It takes up a huge chunk of that one wing of the Hilton. It's on the map!
The restaurant (called "Quark's Bar & Restaurant") is just AWESOME. You'll be seated by a Starfleet cadet & waited on by other uniformed Trek faces. And, while you sit there eating the plentiful food (all named after something from the show or movies), you can watch scenes from the TV series, or bits & pieces of the many wonderful Star Trek big-screen flicks.
And, while you're eating, Quark himself will come by, in full character. He'll tell you all about how Ferengi are the opportunists of the universe. Quark might hit on the females (all females) of your group, because let's face it; as he says, human females are highly prized in the universe. (The Klingons think us human females are ugly, though).
I'll say this much about the bar-portion (which I visited just as much as the restaurant): the drinks are saucer-sized!!! The prices are just as blown-up as the rest of Vegas, so that's that as far as the price.
Star Trek also hosts weddings there; the Klingon warrior I hugged & discussed the finer things about the universe with while downing the rest of my saucer-sized Cosmo, he told me many humans get married on the deck of the Enterprise. A dream come true for those of us who are geeks and proud of it!
Okay other things about the Hilton that I guess are nice: Rob visited the 3rd floor spa/health club. He said it was 'so freaking nice' to lay around in the sauna & the place wasn't crowded. Also the taxi-cab service, taking you either to The Strip or to the airport or just out to eat at somewhere other than Quark's (heaven forbid), is VERY PROMPT.
All in all once the Hilton gets remodeled, and once they consider replacing those Flintstone mattresses? It'll be the only place I'll ever stay in Vegas!
Directions: Next to the convention center... look for the big H

I won a trip to Vegas for 4th of July weekend. We are staying at the Las Vegas Hilton. Has anyone ever stayed there? How is it? Any information is appreciated.
Re: Las Vegas Hilton
Not stayed there, but LOVE the Star Trek exhibiton! It is slightly off the main strip but I'm sure it will be fine, especially since it is a prize
Re: Las Vegas Hilton
Yes -- though I much prefer to stay at the Flamingo Hilton because of location.
The LVH is a convention hotel so you'll need to take a taxi or other means to get over the "the Strip." It is very nice as a hotel. If you like Star Trek you will be in the right place as it has a huge dedication to the theme.
Just don't miss seeing the grand casino hotels like Venecian, Paris, Bellagio, Mirage, etc. (see my pages).
Congratulations on the trip! That is how I went the first time many years ago!
Re: Las Vegas Hilton
NOT STAYED THERE BUT HAD A LOOK AROUND LAST MONTH AND IT LOOKS A VERY NICE HOTEL.
IT IS A GOOD 20-25 MINUTE WALK TO THE CENTER OF THE STRIP BUT IF YOUR LUCKY THE NEW STRIP MONORAIL WHICH HAS A STATION RIGHT BY THE HILTON HOTEL MIGHT BE OPEN BY THE TIME YOUR THERE WHICH WILL BE GREAT FOR GETTING UP AND DOWN THE STRIP.

Only stayed one night, but the place was great. I checked in at 10am and had no problems checking in that early, plus only had to wait in line for 5 minutes. Room was nice and clean. The sink is separate from toilet/shower/bath. Floor in bathroom is tiled and the rest of the room is carpet. The room had an area by the window in which you could work and write stuff. There was a keyboard on top of the television, so they may offer some internet thing, but i did not check it out. Being off-strip sucks, but it is still a nice hotel.
Re: Re: Las Vegas Hilton
Thanks...I didn't have a choice in hotel because I won the trip, but I am hoping the monorail will be running, or I will just take taxis. I'm just excited to be going...it's my first time in Vegas!
Re: Re: Las Vegas Hilton
You'll have a great time. My fiance and I stayed at the Las Vegas Hilton for 7 days - we were there for a convention. You might need to take a cab depending on where you want to go on the strip, but we generally braved the heat and walked wherever we wanted.
Like someone said previously, the rooms are nice and big, and the pool is awesome. We spent a lot of our free time there sipping cold drinks all day!
