"Excellent non-gaming hotel, clean & spacious"
We checked in with no lines at all. Tip is to park at Miracle Shops self parking lot behind Planet Hollywood and it's a short walk to the hotel. We got the free upgrade to Junior Suite per the website with Expedia. It was a pleasant surprise to see how spacious it was, it's actually a separate one bedroom, and the shades automatically went up in the […] living room as we walked in. Everything appears to be clean, and the king bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had a 1 person jetted tub. It's not too far to walk out from the Miracle shops & onto the strip, you're right across the street from Cosmopolitan, Crystal shops, behind it is Aria. You can also walk down to Bellagio & Caesars. Palace. Junior suites are at the corners of the building, so it's preferable if you get the one facing the strip. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Beautiful Place to Stay at"
I was pleasantly surprised and pleased with the staff and the service I will be coming back again with friends to stay at your BEAUTIFUL hotel ... a Home away from home.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was excellent. The pool relaxing, the rooms huge, the non casino vibe was great. Highly recommend to people to try to avoid the LV hype. One issue was a front desk employee was verbally very rude to me and other guests as I attempted to check out. What a shame. But I guess everyone has a bad day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Vacation 2014 Las Vegas"
We went to have a good time in Vegas, We booked the Elara. Great hotel we had a junior suite. As my 25 year old son was traveling with us. It was the best hotel we had ever been to. Great location on the strip. Connected to Planet Hollywood. Full Kitchen with dish washer. King sized bed in the 1 Bedroom the best mattress I have had on vacation. Security […] that checks your room key before getting into the elevator. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not for business travelers"
I was staying in Elara on business. What a mistake. There is no breakfast room in the whole multi-story skyscrapper hotel - you order the food from your hotel room (or from a beach chair by the pool) and then you want 30+ min for someone to bring it to you. This just doesn't work. Hotel rooms do not have LAN wires for the business travelers. It's also […] kinda far away for the strip. The hotel is roaming with kids enjoying the 3 ft. deep pool and seniors taking a break from gambling. The great part about my room at Elara was the jacuzzi bath rub in my room. Not sure if every room has one, but that was very nice. Everything else was blah, from decor (target store posters of marylin monroe and james dean) to the vibe. Needless to say, never again on business. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was Amazing!!!!"
I had a blast, staff was great... I would definetly stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Thank you !"
Really nice hotel, amazing service and an outstanding place to state. Only complain the room was not as clean as I expected to be. It needed some maintainance like the tv remotes they are old and need to be replace. Also cleanliness, the room was clean, but it need it some detail cleaning because the room had a weird odor when we got to the room. However […] the hotel is really nice and is a great place to stay in Vegas with the family. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bad luck for me I guess"
The hotel is great and should be better. It depends on where your room is. IF you wind up on the parking garage side, be prepared for a noisy stay. BEWARE also of "grease trap" cleaning night! I was awakened at 3AM by the sound of a diesel tractor and machinery 18 floors below me. Irritating enough but then.... the smell of rancid grease fills the room. […] Nauseating.. Lots of sympathy from the shift manager but not a single offer to make it right. I was told to put a towel over the air vents. There are plenty of choices in Vegas. I would be very careful about choosing this one. Cant say I would return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
What a pleasant surprise. First time at hotel...very close to strip, very modern and comfortable hotel; clean; great staff and nice decor. I'll stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel had been highly recommended to us by a couple we met a few months earlier in Las Vegas. We were a bit disappointed, compared to other non-casino hotels we've stayed at in Las Vegas in past visits. First, the small stuff - the rooms are still decorated in 90's era Planet Hollywood motif. Cheesy sparlkly paintings of the Hollywood sign, etc. […] The kitchenette was directly next to the bed, which we thought was odd. The furniture layout was also very odd. There was not a full length dressing mirror, just the bathroom mirror, On the plus side , the kitchenette had a dishwasher (?), dishes and there was a coffee maker and free coffee. We looked at a couple of other rooms, and it seems that the rooms next to the end of the hall (x31 & x32, which was ours) were the odd ball rooms in the hotel as far as layout goes. Try not to get these rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the rooms were clean. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was nice, though it lacked a separate tub and shower. Overall the Elara is not as nice as similarly priced non casino hotels (the MGM Signature, or The Hotel at Mandalay Bay (our favorite), but the Elara is really about location - it's centrally located on the Strip and directly attached to Planet Hollywood casino, which offers gambling, shopping, restaurants and clubs.

"Close to all the action and indoor mall"
No surprises just typical Hiltons excellent service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel was ok - nothing special"
It was a pain that you had to use your room key to get on the elevator and that Ice makers were only on the 5th and 50th floors. The staff at check in were clueless and just started talking and wouldn't shut up. The policy of all beverages have to be purchased at the pool is a crock and they only checked some bags not all which is a form of discrimination. […] The noise was awful - lots of kids running up and down the halls and a bunch of teenager yelling and drama. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best hotel ever"
This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. From the cleanliness to Room Service, everything was great. The Front Desk attendants are always pleasant to speak with which makes arrival so much easier after a long flight. I have stayed at this hotel twice. Once during Spring Break and another the following week and each time I was absolutely […] pleased. I could stay there forever! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel manager canceled my reservation"
When I arrived at 2 AM at this hotel the hotel manager admitted that he himself canceled my reservation as he thought I had no showed. I was late checking in, however, had called the hotel earlier the day before to let them know and the woman I spoke with at that point assured me that the room was still in my name as I had already prepaid for it thru […] Expedia. When I explained this to the night manager, he said there were no such notes on the reservation in the system and he couldn't do anything anymore at that point. I was out the $380+ for that reservation and also another $350 for the room I was thankfully able to get at 3am on a Saturday morning after calling 5 other hotels who were also booked that nite. I will NEVER stay at or recommend this hotel to my friends or family. I was literally turned out to the street even though I had paid for a room ahead of time and not offered a refund or even a phone to call another hotel. Terrible customer care and service. Very disappointing unfortunately. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent place to stay with kids."
Very clean and quiet. Close to the strip, just a quick walk through the mall. Close to restaurants and casinos. We had an amazing time with our family while staying in Vegas. Free parking in the mall garage was very convenient. No resort fees were a bonus as well. Would definitely stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful location and great facility."
The one bedroom suites with full kitchens and washer/dryer are perfect for small families. The floor to ceiling views are lovely. All the staff are extremely courteous and the security is fantastic. You cannot beat the location, right on the Strip and the Miracle Mile Shops. The hotel does not have a casino (great - non smoking facility) but you are […] steps away from Planet Hollywood or any other casino on the strip. We took the Deuce up and down the strip and did not need a car. Overall, the best place I have stayed in Vegas. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"By far best hotel in Vegas"
Great customer service .. Everyone greets you . The hotel is new and in great shape , perfect spot on the strip . Best hotel I've ever stayed at ! Recommend this place , reasonable price tooGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay"
Three friends stayed over Spring Break. I was hoping to get a rollaway bed, but didn't know until check-in that they do not have them at this facility. However, there was plenty of room. Between the king bed, the pull-out sofa sleeper, and the couch section of the sectional, there was plenty of room. It was great to be able to sit on the sofa, look […] out the picture window, and have the room to be comfortable. Having a refrigerator and microwave really helped, too.

"Nice hotel,right in center of strip."
Hotel was great ,staff great ,location great, But parking bad,very bad, you use Planet Hollywoods parking garage not so close when checking in with bags, you can use their parking for a 15 dollar a day charge not so good for price of hotel room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This place is def as advertised!"
Our junior suite was amazing! There is not one thing I could complain about. This hotel is in the perfect location, walgreens is close for getting supplies and alcohol. The walk through the mall to get to planet Hollywood is not bad. The pool is so beautiful! Great service! I'm thinkin these negative reviews are just some uppity complainers that just […] need to stay at Aria or Wynn Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic junior suite with a view"
Check in was fast. Fantastic room view on north side of the 28th floor. Elevator was fast for floor 28 since there were 2 sets of elevators with ours going from 1 then 28-56. Convenient self parking in the Miracle Mile parking lot, easy entrance and exit onto a dead end street which made easy travel to either end of the strip and downtown. Kitchen came […] with coffee pot, dishes, refrigerator, sink, and dish washer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"surgical travel strike (or "my vegas wedding")"
we decided to get married and had to do it in vegas, because VEGAS BABY! looking around at prices and locations; we decided on a non-casino type property to avoid larger foot traffic and smokiness, we still wanted reasonable access to popular venues or other major points of interest (i.e. bellagio fountains; airport etc). We arrived late sunday evening […] (march 16 2014) and had a very short trip from the airport, taxi for two was cheaper than a shuttle for two would have been AND no other stops or people sharing the ride; score #1. got to our room and there is a kitchenette with a dishwasher, mini fridge, microwave AND COFFEE MACHINE! score #2 (other than getting married, that was probably the most important part of our trip) still on eastern time we woke up early and fetched a cab to downtown to the marriage license bureau, with little traffic we enjoyed taking the strip and being able to see everything; score #3. we went to a very convenient wedding chapel and had a same day ceremony scheduled within minutes (vegas wedding chapel, original location with the fish tank from the tv show) including the best elvis in vegas, "Kent" the elvis! almost everything was within walking distance and what wasn't was easily found with a taxi; much more convenient than the deuce or monorail (purely subjective however since its entirely dependant upon your agenda, however the strip is a few steps away, as is the MGM station of the monorail).

"Great non-smoking hotel in Vegas"
My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend and really enjoyed the hot. Love the fact that the entire hotel is smoke free and literally a few minutes walk to get to the strip. The pool was great (not packed but also not boring) and the rooms were newly remodeled so felt clean (we were facing south so plenty of light). Would definitely stay here again […] on future trips.

"Great place, but not without it's flaws"
First of all, the hotel room was really nice. I stayed in the 1-bedroom suite. The bedding was really soft and comfy and the projector TV was amazing. The room came with a washer (I didn't use it), and a dish washer, and 4 full sets of cups, dishware, and utensils. I would definitely want to stay at Elara again in the future. However, there were some […] minor issues with the room. Firstly, the bathroom door locks in my suite didn't work properly. The sliding door lock was completely broken, and the regular door took a bit of effort to close all the way, making it difficult to lock. Next, the extra blanket that was in the closet had a bunch of dark marks and stains on it (looked like it might have been make-up or something). It should have been easy to see before they folded it. Lastly, the hot tub had little chunks of grime/dirt that came out of the jets. It wasn't a whole lot, but it was noticeable when we drained the tub. None of these were deal-breakers, but definitely things that NEED to be fixed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Vegas hotel around!"
The Elara was great for it's location and convenience to the LV strip. The property if connected to the Miracle Mile shops on Las Vegas Blvd, a 3-5 minute walk to the Axis theater in Planet Hollywood, and is pretty much right in the middle of all the action. Best thing is, there isn't a casino and smoking is not allowed on the property so when you are […] ready to relax from all the chaos of Vegas you just had, you will totally be able to. Rooms were clean, the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept on, and every room comes with a mini kitchen stocked with plates, cups, and sliver ware if you are a family that needs it. Service was friendly and the lobby bar was a great place to grab a drink. Would stay here again and highly recommend! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was my first time in Vegas I went for my 21st bday! I got a suite at the elara and I was really satisfied. my experience was great I would do it again and definitely stay at the elara again!

It was goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We've stayed here before and were looking forward to returning. If you like to walk around the Strip, this is an ideal place to stay. The view is great. The rooms are comfortable. The entire building is smoke-free. Security is good. Even though the hotel was crowded due to college Spring Breaks, things were very quiet on the floors. The third day of […] our stay, water began flooding from the ceiling. Apparently, someone in the room above us let the bathtub overflow. We let the staff know, and they immediately set to work remedying the situation. They offered to let us change rooms (which would have resulted in an upgrade at no charge), but, given that we were only going to stay one more night, we decided the convenience of staying was worth more than moving. We headed out for a couple of hours and when we came back, the room was completely put back together. We can't stay enough positive things about how the staff handled the situation. They really treated us like valuable guests. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"If you need WIFI, ask for the right room"
It was a late arrival, got room 701, it was a free upgrade to from a Junior Suite, I thought, that it nice. Wanted to check my mails, no WiFi in the room............called with the reception, Yeh, you might be able to get a connection in one of the corners in the room. Well, only in the hallway...............no other room available. They new about the […] problems in this room, if you know.........ask if the guest checks in. Got a $ 25.00 discount on the bill from the restaurant in exchange. Did not please me, not having the WiFi made my stay disappointing, i know it is Vegas, but this was a business trip. This is a non Casino hotel, very nice, Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel is great!"
Their rooms are to die for. I stayed here one night with my love & didn't regret it. The only problem we had was that they had rooms available for a second night, but didn't offer us an extension when I had specifically asked for another night. Other than that, it's great! Who doesn't love a 24 hour Starbucks in the lobby?!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location & smoke free"
Best part for me was that the resort is very clean and does not sit directly above a smokey casino. Loved the location in relation to other resorts, shows, shopping, and dining. Our room was fantastic and we had a view over the Paris resort and tower. I would stay here again before any of the other high end resorts.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exceeded our expectations!"
Quick and easy check in. Scott at 5 he front desk was perfect. Room was immaculate, no issues to report. Even made the time to use the huge soaking tub after a long day of walking the strip. The walk to the PH casino was an easy 10 minute, it's much closer than anticipated. A real gem look forward to coming back.Genuine Expedia guest review
