I've stayed at all of the Hilton Grand Vacation Club locations in Vegas. Never had a problem at any of them. The "Strip" location is across from SLS, North of Circus Circus. It's a nice place.

I stayed there once in 2014. The hotel was fine. The rooms were a little older but in good condition and clean. Good views of the mountains/Strip/Downtown from the rooms on higher floors. Not much close by except the SLS and maybe a short walk to Circus-Circus. However, there is a monorail stop behind the SLS that can get you to the other end of the strip - a long walk, otherwise.

You will need a credit card. Unless their policies have changed, the shops inside the hotel do not accept any cash at all. There used to be a CVS a couple buildings down but it has closed up since the Riviera was demolished. Its still possible to walk up towards Sahara and hit the Walgreens on the corner if you need something and don't have or want to use a card.

They didn't used to charge for parking if you were a hotel guest but no idea if that policy has changed now that charging for parking on the strip is the new moneymaker.

There is another Hilton on (I think) Tropicana at the other end of the strip that is much more accessible but I think it costs more and generally has less availability.

Thanks George! This is good information.

I stayed there for a week around Halloween last year in a 1 BR suite. The room was very nice, everything seemed new and clean, and I liked having an oversized tub and basically a full kitchen in the room. There are 2 TVs (on in the "living room" and one in the bedroom) with a full cable selection including HBO, otherwise they give you a free rental a day of DVDs from a Redbox like machine. The little store in the hotel has a lot of stuff like pop, snacks, microwave meals, liquor/beer, etc.- overpriced, but that's to be expected from a hotel store. They also sell some hot food like pizza.


The hotel felt very safe. You have to use your keycard to get into the elevators and there is a guard who checks for them after 10 PM. The area around it isn't the greatest, you'll see panhandlers, people passed out, etc. But I never felt unsafe and would regularly walk to/from the SLS so I could use the monorail. You are within walking distance to SLS, Stratosphere, Circus Circus, and a little further there is Wynn/Encore and the Fashion Show Mall. Otherwise there are north/southbound Deuce stops right outside/across the street.


I would stay there again, but usually I end up staying at the Hilton by the Convention Center (next to the Westgate). It's basically the same as the one on the Strip but smaller. It tends to be cheaper and it's a shorter walk to the monorail at the Westgate station. The common areas (lobby, etc.) aren't as fancy and there's a couple fewer amenities (like no hotel bar) but I think the actual rooms are exactly the same.

I stayed in that hotel several years ago, and it was nice and clean. No any bugs.

No problem. I agree with what gweilo845 said. The room I stayed in had 2 bedrooms, basically a full living room, balcony, and basically a full kitchen(they advertised as kitehnette). The suite had full size fridge, apt size stacked washer and dryer, had all utlensils/plates/cups(and if you didn't wash them room service did it for you), full size stove, smaller full size fridge, 2 bathrooms, and 2 bedrooms. No real complaints.

The only thing I could complain about, is the AC only came on for about 4 hours once set. If you left the room longer than that, you might come back to an 82+ degree room. It also kicked off during the night, so you might wake up at 6am too hot. I think if you left, the thermostat set itself to 82 which is fine for an LV resident, but if you're not acclimated..... hahaha.

As far as I know they charge you for parking if you rent a room through Hilton. If you are an HGVC owner there is no charge for parking; not 100% sure but I believe there is no parking charge if you trade in there through RCI (timeshare exchange company).
