With non-stop Las Vegas action at your doorstep, this Hilton Grand Vacation Club and hotel, offers an unbeatable location. Adjacent to Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino, the hotel affords direct access through an enclosed mall with 170 shops and restaurants.

The design features modern charm with large open spaces, bold colors, soaring ceilings, a welcoming lobby lounge with coffee and cocktail bar and touches of Hollywood flare and memorabilia.

The spacious one-bedroom suite, in colors of red, white and black offered ample seating with large red leather sectional sofa and two additional modern arm chairs. The living space was separated from the kitchen with a long counter-height black granite table, which served as extra space for food preparation, as well as dining with six white leather chairs. The black granite carried into the fully equipped kitchen offset by stainless steel full size appliances. A small closet concealed a stackable washer and dryer.

The stunner was the floor to ceiling windows, with push-button adjustment to raise or lower the curtains, in the living and sleeping areas welcoming views of the Strip and the Valley beyond. The suite was equipped with high-speed internet, wall mounted flat- screen televisions and a personal 8-foot wide screen and HD home theater system to watch movies – just like in a movie theater. Just bring along the popcorn!



A black leather tufted headboard framed in wood paneling with wall sconces and recessed overhead reading lights, adorned the king bed. Near the window was an animal print chaise lounge – more shades of Hollywood glamour. Push button light and curtain control panels were easily reachable from the bed allowing you to take-in the nighttime views of Las Vegas. A closet with personal safe and jetted whirlpool tub separated the bedroom area from the other part of the bathroom. There was a large marble stall shower with frosted glass enclosure and good counter and storage space with the double vanity and decorative mirror. However, the black granite vanity countertop and deep color scheme made the bathroom dark since it sat at the other end of the suite – away from the massive wall of windows.

Resort amenities included a sparkling pool with cabanas and a well furnished fitness center. The property is ideal for couples or families as there are accommodations ranging from studios to four- bedroom suites. It presents a comfortable environment and ideal location to enjoy the sights of Las Vegas.
