Modern media, accuracy is optional.

Inaccurate headline. The "Las Vegas Hilton" is no longer in existence and is now known as the "Westgate Las Vegas Resort." In fact, this story isn't even about a Hilton hotel in Las Vegas, it's a "Hilton Property in Henderson, NV" as stated in the first sentence. I guess accuracy and precision don't make for good headline clickbait.
