Early last week, I stayed at Hilton Grand Vacation’s newest property – Elara, in Las Vagas. The building itself is fairly new, but it very recently became a Hilton. I am told that the Hilton Grand Vacation sign was just put up a few days ago. Before that it used to be a part of Planet Hollywood. It is a Hilton Grand Vacation resort, which means you can buy up suites there, but also a hotel, which is how I ended up staying there.
The hotel is beautiful and its location is excellent, just off the the strip and attached to the Miracle Mile mall. The main lobby actually opens up right into the mall. The Miracle Mile mall has the old Planet Hollywood at its other end.
I stayed in a studio suite, which was a nice sized room with a fridge and combination convention and microwave oven. The highlight was the floor to ceiling window. My room was on the top (56th) floor, with a great view of the strip. For those planning to stay there, odd numbered rooms face north, towards the strip and even numbered rooms face the airport. Being an aircraft junkie, I was really torn which way to go. I chose the strip as I did not have my DSLR camera with me.
Here are some pictures I took.
