Went to the Hilton as I had a coupon for TJ's Steakhouse. Having never been to the Hilton before, I decided that I would take the monorail from Imperial Palace. From riding the monorail, and see how far it goes, you get a real perspective how big the hotels and buildings in Las Vegas...
Anywho, back to the review. We arrived around 2 or 3 in the afternoon as we wanted to play a bit. There is a great selection of machines, and even found some 9/6 JOB at my type of limit - quarters. The drink service was fast, too fast. This place knows how to mix a great Tequila Sunrise.
I never signed up for a card, as there was no real incentive to. There was no promotion on when I was there, so, no card.
The staff was super nice at this place. Nicer than nice. Everyone was so helpful, especially they lady I never got my card from. She gave some great advice on taking a cab Downtown later - Take the monorail to that last station, where the Sahara is, straight down the elevator and hail a cab off the street. Only about $10 w/tip from there...
My wife said she could feel "Elvis" in this place; lots of history here apparently... I would like to try this place out someday to stay for a night or two...
Far north end of the Strip so location is not ideal unless going to a convention, but it has a monorail stop.
I have stayed here >10 times over the last 10 years. They give the best room offers, any day including weekends up to 4 nights. I do better here playing slots than on the Strip.
Last time I went (2/08), I won two jackpots. Rooms are not as nice as the Wynn or Bellagio, but they have been upgraded and are fine (on par with the Mirage).
Room service was good; cafe has decent inexpensive food. Buffet is just average (but fine for free, I get them comped). I hear their steak house is quite good, but I have not tried it.
Employees are friendly & the cocktail service is good in the main casino, just so so in the Space Quest casino. Usually I go as a girl's weekend, but I came here once with my husband & kids. My husband & son enjoyed the Star Trek experience & Quarks restaurant.
Only reason I gave the gaming atmosphere a 4 instead of a five is I don't really care for the casino layout: I prefer one large casino.
We stay at the Hilton when attending conventions and find it convenience. The casino is nice, comps good, however not close to strip for walking. Will need to take taxi or monarail to get to other casinos.
I really liked the room I had, it was clean and comfortable with a great view. Shampoo and lotions were pretty good also. There are even good views by the elevators which were fast and clean. My check in and check how was friendly and efficient. Cocktail service was fast and friendly.
