4stars  Had a great time
It takes a long time to find the right hotel, and this was exactly what we expected. Say hi to David at the front desk!

  Ok, I did not stay at this hotel. My friend dragged me to this hotel for the Star Trek The Experience. Boy was it a rip off !!! I am not a "trekie" so from the get go I did not have fun. As a friend I went and had to endure the constant rip offs that were present. First admission is $30 to get in. For $30 what do you get? well for starters you get to see all the costumes and other geekwear seen on Star Trek. Then you get to have an $15 "option" to take a picture on the bridge as if you were the caption. No im not kidding, and I was thinking for $30 you get to do that for free. Anyway after that you get to ride 2 rides. One being "Klingon Encounter" which is a "back to the future" style ride where you travel through space and so forth with real time motion simulation. What made me laugh till i farted was when you are brought back to earth. You fly over the Vegas strip, and what do you see? MGM grand with a huge lion mouth entrance when in reality that was demolished to make way for a huge statue of a lion. Anyway it was a decent ride. The other ride "BORG Invasion 4D" was horrible. You sit in special chair, with 3d glasses and basically sit and watch a part life acting/3d movie with real time motion simulation. Then the "4d" part comes into play. The 4d is actually little mechanisms implanted in the chair so when you are shoved, probbed and so forth, the chair will either spit air/mist at you or move. The best part is when this little round stick thing probes your ass. Thats right, it will do it to simulate what it feels like when you are turned into a borge. Of course most of the probbing is done in the back this little treat in the butt is a molestation. After the rides you get to get price gouged more. You then must decide should I go and take my hard earned $$$ to eat/gambling or what ever or should I decide to buy some Star Trek crap. Most people buy the crap which is 80% over priced junk. Few are good collectables or trip momentos but they cost more than the construction cost of the casino. Anyway I just would like to say the Hilton is off the strip, a little hard to get into, near a tram to go downtown and knowing Hilton the rooms might be in good condition with a great deal or two out there. My review is just for the Star Trek "price gouging" Experience. I think for $30 the price of this "experience" is a pass, and really not worth it. It is worth more along the lines of $15 or so but not $30. Its a insult what the star trek producers are doing to its fan base, and its even more sad that people are willing to pay for such things when it was them who made it popular. Maybe they should have a "get in free, if you have a star trek tattoo" day or something to "keep it trekie-real."

  This place is very very bad! Except for the Star Trek stuff it really sucks! Bad service & crappy rooms abound here! Its way off the strip & not a safe walk either unless you have a gun! I stayed here four days when I was booked for nine days! I spent the other five days at the Stardust & was glad I did! This Hilton is made to rip you off big time! I placed a $2000.00 bet on red on the roulette wheel & won! The LV Hilton management told me to leave after I got my chips & went to cash in. This place likes nickel & dime players they can grind up but HATE a big bet they lose.
See the Star Trek thing but avoid this casino & its overpriced buffet.

We stayed from August 12 through August 16, 2002, and had a great stay. We were fortunate to have our room on the 27th floor, facing the Strip for the most part. Our room was really close to the elevators, even better. The room was clean to start and kept clean for the time we were there. The ability to connect to Cox High Speed Internet would have been ideal if I has a network card on my aging laptop. The in-room digital services were very cool. Movies and music available on demand (movies only $9.99... We enjoyed two during our stay). Interesting to note: We starting watching Spiderman, and I goofed and press the channel button on the remote instead of the volume, which switched us back to regular TV and off the movie. They didn't charge us to restart the movie (it was in the first two minutes of the movie). The Operator services from the room were seriously lacking. Most of the questions I asked were met with "ho-hum" attitude and a great lack of knowledge. The Front Desk personnel were very helpful and knowledgable. Getting around the hotel was simple and parking was very easy and close. We enjoyed being away from the strip and really enjoyed our stay. I do recommend staying at the Hilton.. it's worth it!! :-)

The Las Vegas Hilton used to be a great hotel. By today's standards it leaves much to be desired. AAA needs to wake up and realize it is no longer a 4 Diamond property. My wife and I had a "guaranteed" reservation there with the first night charged on our credit card. When we arrived, we were kept waiting with many other guests for over an hour only to be told "We have no rooms" This ruined our vacation and it was handled very badly by upper management. The location is awful. There are much better deals on the Strip and it pays to stay somewhere you are treated like a human being!

Our family visited the Hilton in April, 2002. Taking along 5 and 9 year old boys makes me wonder whoever said Vegas was a good place to vacation with children! Fotrunately, amid the crowds and traipsing, the Hilton's Star Trek" The Experience made the whole trip worthwhile! It's a great time for fans and visitors alike! The hotel itself was busy all the time. Our room on the 16th floor was less than I expected from this famous hotel chain. We constantly had to wait for elevators, because often times only 1 was operating. The Paradise Cafe was a good place for family dining, priced fairly with good food. I liked the fact that the place is designed so that you don't have to cross vast expanses of casino to get to shops, restaurants and the like. I gambled a bit in the Spacequest Casino, not at all in the other larger casinos on the premesis. Had no luck at all, but the atmosphere was fun. The pool was not crowded and very nice. Overall, I would say it's a nice place, but I doubt I'd stay again. Too many other options, and many closer to the center of the Strip.

Be prepared to be treated badly & ripped off. Dont dare make a long distance call in your room for its $8.00 a minute!!! Yes $8.00. The places downtown are nicer than this typical Hilton ripoff. Rooms have stupid iron & ironing board but no coffee maker or nothing else. Its a long walk to another casino as well. They dont comp much but maybe a penny on ever $100.00 you lose.

The hotel is a great deal for the money. The casino has blackjack rules that vary from table to table, but you can find surrender and dealers that must stand on soft 17. The downside for blackjack players: many people are there on convention, so be prepared to only go in the slow hours, or else you'll witness doubling down on 15 and splitting 10's so much you'll think you're on a hidden camera show.

The only gripe if you drive is you have to allot 15-20 minutes to be from your room to when you're actually leaving the property driving. This is due mainly to its huge size. If you valet park, it may take longer. Only valet park if you have luggage or are unable to walk three or four blocks withouth difficulty. If you are trying to time getting to a show or restaurant reservations, be sure to add at least 20 minutes to your anticpated time in leaving this huge hotel.

We loved this hotel, we had to come here for a convention for our business and loved the idea of being close to the convention center and off the main strip. We had a rental car and didn't find the location to be an issue. It's clean, it's fun, and it's friendly. What more do you really need. (That's how to write a review).

I loved the Hilton sans the distance from the Strip; I have a close personal relationship with the Blackjack Blitz there. The pool was truly spectaculor, the casino cozy though chilly, the room very nice sofa and all, and the food decent save that bizarre Mexican restaurant with the plastic food. Might go back if for nothing else than to play their Kong slot which I thoroughly enjoyed!

Stayed here for a week in early August and enjoyed it for the most part. The rooms are nice (although only a 20" TV, which I thought was odd) and the pool is quite nice. Service is good in general. The buffet is average, however, and the Mexican restaurant should be avoided at all costs; the wait staff is "bizarre" and the food is awful. Had possibly the worst meal I've ever had in Vegas. Yech. Probably won more in this casino in 5 days then in all the others I visited combined. Unfortunately, also lost more, too. Complaints would be as follows: the area by the sports book gets downright cold at times, and I'm ALWAYS hot, usually. One afternoon, we had to sneak out the back door to warm up. Also, the hotel is a ways from the "good" part of the strip, ie MGM, NY-NY, Bally's, etc. One day we walked to Paris in 100 degree heat and it was quite a hike. QUITE a hike. Consequently, we ended up spending more in cabs than we normally would. Overall, though, would stay here again if I got a good deal. One advantage: the casino tends to be less crowded, possibly because it's mostly Hilton guests playing there; anyone else would have to make a major effort to get there. So you don't feel overrun like you do on the strip, at times.

I was truly expecting this hotel to be over run with Star Trek fans but, the truth of the matter is that the Star Trek exhibit is off by itself and the

Las Vegas Hilton is just that...a Hilton Hotel located in Las Vegas. It's a great place to stay if you're looking to be away from the craziness of the Strip and want to be close to the convention center.
