A very basic buffet for Las Vegas. In a city where there are hotels with old fashioned steam table boring buffets and gourmet dining buffet experiences...the Las Vegas Hilton manages to hit the middle of the road. Precisely. Nothing is spicy. Nothing is exciting. Basic salad bar, good but not great meat and pasta dishes. Nothing is bad. Falls absolutely flat at deserts. Boring casino cake. It is, just okay.
This is a great place to say if you want to stay off the strip and not pay those outrageous rates. They have the monorail that takes you to the strip so why pay those rates? The casino is great - laid out nicely although no more quarter slots. The rooms are nice, comfortable with great views. The restaurants onsite are very good as well. Benihana, there's a few steakhouses and a great little mexican restaurant too. Parking is free and easy to access. High recommendation!
I have stayed at this hotel several times. Initially I stayed there for a conference and it was a great hotel for a conference as they have a great conference center. The rooms are very nice and there are several great restaurants to choose from. I love the Mexican restaurant. The downside for some is that it is located off the strip.
We really enjoyed our stay at the hilton. only negative was location off of the strip but convenient monorail station in lobby made strip access easy. Star Trek experience in hotel was very cool. Rooms were big and clean--check in and staff was great. We enjoyed the value for the price and would definitely stay there again!
The Hilton has been continuously renovated over the past couple of years, so make sure you get a room that has been redone. The pool area is nice, the monorail stops right outside, and there are many, many restaurants. Off the strip (behind the Rivera), but there's really no reason to leave.
This hotel and casino was old looking. With the name of the Hilton, I expected this to be a lot newer and classier. This was the place that Elvis performed and it doesn't look much different that when he performed. There really isn't any attractions to draw you down here. The only thing I really enjoyed was the buffet. The buffet had great food. If you joined their slot club you could get a buy one get one free buffet.
Very modern, with restaurants, bars and a spa. Beautiful outdoor pool overlooking the city. Service was excellent, with us getting drinks delivered while we lounged by the pool. The rooms were big and the beds very comfortable with down comforters. There is a casino connected to it.
Benihana's restaurant, I love to gamble there and I have won! Lots to do for young & old and big...all restaurants are nice...wonderland by itself...overall entertaining.
Pros: I won at keno!
Cons: middle Las Vegas some traffic on Paradise
My family and I have been visiting Las Vegas for years now and we have been to many show rooms and lounges in most of the casinos. In recent years our favorite thing to do far and away is sit in the Tempo Loung at the Hilton when More & Gendel are performing. Llynda More has a strong voice that can cover alot of ground, she sings the easy listening standards, pop, rock, country.....or even the hardest metal songs. Mark Gendel is excellent on guitar, guitar fans out there will be amazed. He will play funky rythms or blistering hard rock with the best of them. I am serious they are unbelievable.
We really enjoy watching More & Gendel interact with the audience. They are sure to get people involved in the act and they will mix up the songs to go with the mood of the room, keeping tempo in the Tempo !
My son turned 21 in Las Vegas and they gave him a very special treat. Playing a song for him and having him put on a party hat, it was sooo much fun. I have also seen them do similar things for other events.
I think More & Gendel are a great part of the Las Vegas experience and the Hilton should be thrilled to have them !
Pros: They perform all styles of music
I have been to Tempo before when there was this really unfortunate duo singing pop music. Tonight there was no such entertainment. Alas, we all still managed to have a good time...

Never staying at the Hilton before I relied upon the reservationist to fulfill my request...My son was getting married at the Hilton and it was also my birthday and a friends anniversary...I was informed that I could have a Lanai suite that had a patio adjacent to the pool area...I specifically requested a room by the pool area as I do not gamble but I enjoy the sun and water...Upon arrival the room was a Lanai but not near the pool...I was informed by management that the owner had taken all the pool side suites. When i insisted on a refund management refused stating I needed to give them 48 hrs notice...even though they had not fulfilled my request. We decided to stay only because the majority of the wedding party was at the Hilton...During the course of our stay we had personnel walk into our rooms without knocking at least 3 times a day...Friends of ours had some walk in there room at 01:30 and when asked who it was stated housekeeping and left..My daughter in law had her wedding ring and others items taken from her room. Every night I had to go back down stairs to get a new room key becasue my card would not work. I could go on but needless to say I will never stay at the Hilton again
Pros: Nice Rooms
Cons: Unannounced personnel in rooms
I stayed here before with my parents and it is ok. Not on the strip but luckily the tram is available at this hotel. I guess it is a good hotel if you are there for business because it is close to the convention center, overall it is a pretty boring hotel.
Pros: tram available
Cons: kind of boring
So if you love Star Trek this is the place to go for the tourist thing. Other than the ride and the little museum of show memorabilia that's about it. I had a bad experience with rude cashiers there and not really much else to say about it. If you a cheap room here great, but they are a little off the strip and it would be an ambitious undertaking to walk from there to almost anywhere.
Cons: a little ways off strip
This was to best casino I visted on the strip, the staff was very friendly, won some money and had a great time.
Do not stay here, if you like to stay somewhere nice. The people who stay here are not high-class people if you know what I mean. There was no decent food in the place. We stayed in a comped suite, which was ok, but the suites should be great. It's really far off the strip so it takes a while to get places. There are much better choices on the strip!!
I came for the 2006 CES, along with thousands of others. That's hard on a hotel, but no excuse for charging $350 per night for a second-floor room facing a parking lot. Inside the room, I found the lighting consisted of wretched flourescents that were bright enough for surgery. There are thoughtful ways to design lighting. And then there is the Hilton's ready-for-surgery in your room approach. I had to turn the bathroom light OFF to take a shower, and use the reflected flourescent from the hallway. It lit up the whole bedroom, plus the bath. Ick! At the business center, I sent a package out on Sunday, paid for two-day shipping, and they didn't send it until Tuesday, so I got my stuff on Thursday. How lame is that? Very. Close to events, but I'd rather walk a mile than stay there again.
Pros: Close to convention, Tempo Bar
Cons: Horrifying lighting, Business dis-services, Value
Went last November for college friends "reunion" - great prices on nice rooms. Cons - further from strip than we thought so taking a cab is a must; this can make you feel somewhat isolated from "real vegas"; limited number of tables as well so you have to leave b/c it gets boring. Pros - great staff - gave us a room upgrade as result of reservation error with no fuss; chinese restaurant - great food and decently priced; dealers - friendly and fun!
Pros: rooms & rates, staff
Cons: , number of tables
If you like your gambling a little more subdued and relaxing, this is your place. Off-strip location cuts down on foot traffic through the casinio and noise. Nice rooms, good food and great shows each time I've been there.
Pros: Quieter, Great Sports Book, Star Trek
Cons: , Parking
This was a great hotel even though many hotels exist in las vegas but the hilton holds it's own and it has a class to it that gives it the accreditation to hold it's own place as a great hotel. What made this as a great experience there was seeing charles barkley going to the vip elevator .So to make it short i encourage you to go and check out this hotel.who knows who you will see there.The only thing i suggest is to see if you can budget the hotel if you can you wont regret it.
Pros: great hotel
Cons: somewhat expensive
