Las Vegas Hilton. No hassle. I had my points posted within a few days. Good luck getting a free breakfast. I did receive an "upgraded room" (nice view, high floor, newly renovated) and a newspaper.

If you're doing it for the four stays rather than the luxury, there are also three Hamptons, two Embassy Suites and a DoubleTree in town.

I concur with TransWorldONe. I have had two stays there in the last six weeks. $45 per night(This can vary greatly) upgraded room, and miles posted within 3 days which is very unusual with oter Hiltons.

The Las Vegas Hilton webrate of $45(when available) is cheaper than all those alternatives plus you get a health club and a $10 match play in the casino. If you win the nightly rate is only $35.

I'm staying at the Las Vegas Hilton in December-- how do you get the $10 match play?

And does anybody know about their 'casino' program? I spend most my time at Harrah's but does Hilton have a casino program that is linked to HHonors??

Unlike Harrah's "Total Gold" program, each Hilton hotel/casino has its own separate players card, not linked to each other, as Harrahs does, nor are they linked to Hilton's HHonors program. Would be a good idea though, but with Park Place taking over most of the casino properties, I don't think this will happen soon.

I am hold VIP status with all the Hilton LV casinos. The only two programs which are linked are Ballys and Paris (also I believe the LV Flamingo is linked with the Laughlin Flamingo Hilton )
However all casino marketing is done though Park Place so if you are rated at any of the Hilton casinos and want to get a comped stay
(or any stay for that matter)elsewhere if you call Park Place they will be the best able to set you up in any of their properties across the country including Atlantic City and the Caesars Palace casinos.
Most times Park Place can get you in free depending on your play rating into a property which may be completely sold out for normal reservations.( They have done this
at least twice for me)
They were able to confirm me a free stay at the Flamingo for the Millenium when early on when many places including the LV Hilton was asking for $1000/night with a 3 night minimum and I needed to make sure I had confirmed reservations 6 months in advance.
No linkage with Hhonors though but casino guests are treated much better than Hhonor
VIPS anyway

We're always impressed with high rollers and their comps. However, this has little to do with the poor slobs adding up their Hhonors points....like me.

I stayed at the LV Hilton over the weekend and was not terribly impressed. The place was a dump.

First, there was no airport shuttle, so I had to wait 40 minutes in the taxi line.

I checked in late Friday night and there was not a separate HHonors check in line, only an "Invited guests of the casino" line. There did seem to be a separate line the next day.

As a Gold VIP I may have gotten a larger room (called a suite, but not, in my opinion), but nothing else. There was no minibar or fridge. No coffeemaker. No breakfast coupons. No newspaper. Didn't try to use the gym, which otherwise would have been $18/day.

There was some trash on the floor in the hallway outside my room that was left there all day even though staff members had been by several times (at least once to bring my room service).

The Pepsi vending machines located on each floor did not work. I tried 3 of them. Two of them weren't even plugged in.

I also didn't like the fact that they don't automatically give you a copy of the folio. This was the first hotel I've stayed at in a while that didn't slip a copy under the door the morning of checkout. I did express checkout on the TV and still had to stop by the desk to get a copy of the folio, which by the way does not have either my HH number of FF number on it. When I asked the clerk about the numbers, she said they don't usually appear on the folio. Again, in my recent experience, hotel numbers and FF numbers do usually appear on the folio. At least I have a copy that I can send to Hilton in case my points and miles are not credited.

Considering the lack of benefits, the tacky pink tile in the bathroom, and the location, I don't think I would choose to stay there again. Paris here I come.

Lounges in LAS

Does any of the Las Vegas Hiltons has a tower/executive lounge ?

Remember that these are gambling casinos - not 'hotels' per se

NO- not for HHaoners - what they have for their VIP gamblers is a separate question

Las Vegas dillema

I have done a number of searches, but didn't find a posting with a clear comparison of the two hotels

Paris vs Flamingo...

I know that the Flamingo has a better pool, but it seems like the rooms in Paris are newer. As of a Gold VIP, what are the chances for upgrades???

I plan to stay 2 days in either one of the above and one day in LV Hilton (just to get the bonus points )

Any comments???

Thx

Stayed at the Flamingo last month - it was fine- there is an entire thread on the Flamingo

Staying at Paris next wk - if you can wait I'll let you know then


Also, remember no bkfst at any of these.

Upgrades are catch as catch can - I got upgraded at the Flamingo ( I'm Diamond) but you have to remember that these are casinos with a different orientation towards upgrades

I've stayed in both properties earlier this month. Rooms in Paris are much newer, and if room rates are comparable, Paris is a better value IMHO, although Flamingo's pool area is much better. Checking in at the Park Place booth at the airport might increase your chances for an upgrade and save time as well, as it is less crowded. Ask for the Strip view, higher floor, especially at Paris - fountains at Bellagio are right across the Strip, and they are magnificent.
