You won't find Elvis here anymore, but you will find some full pay video poker scattered around the casino starting at a quarter. They have a small poker room running 1/3 NL and 4/8 LH, and one of the best sports books anywhere. The hotel is pretty big as are the rooms. It's a couple blocks away from the Strip, a short walk, or you can use the monorail which has a stop right at the hotel and the convention center next door.
Every trip to Vegas, we take the Monorail down to The Hilton, or now called LVH.
Great Full Pay Video Poker here at the quarter level. It's located near the very large sports book, another selling point of this Vegas icon.
You'll notice that part of the casino still has the Star Trek look to it. They never removed this when "Star Trek: The Experience" closed a while back. It's kind of weird, but cool in a weird way.
Plenty of dining options at LVH. Benihana's is always a good choice. The Buffet isn't too bad either, not great, but slightly above average. Free boxed wine and Pabst Blue Ribbon to go along with the $19.99 dinner price.
In my opinion there's no better choice on the strip for video poker lovers for JoB.
We visited the Las Vegas Hilton to dine at the buffet restaurant using the prize I won from the ACG recently. The Hilton person who handled getting my buffet comp was great answering my emails and cell phone calls. The place is so big that we got lost finding a place to park until we finally found the parking garage. The buffet was actually a disappointment being so small.
(But a free buffet is always good!). The player's club was not offering any special incentive to join, so we didn't.
I've stayed here 5 times in the last 3 years. In that time the service has slowly deteriorated. Each time the lines at the front desk have gotten longer as they don't staff enough people at the front desk (although this has been a problem at many other casinos in Las Vegas as well). Also they have what I call an "anti-resort fee". If you forego daily maid service, you get a $10 voucher good in the casino restaurants and stores. Well the last time we called to forego maid service on the first day since we had checked in late and didn't have a chance to really dirty the room. Well even though we only called to forego once, the maids never came during our stay and we got the $10 voucher every day. Calling to complain after the 2nd day didn't help anything. And I finally on the 3rd day had to ask for new towels. Somebody in housekeeping isn't keeping up with the program.
We stay here since they send nice room offers to us on a regular basis and the rooms are nice. They do have some decent pay video poker machines. Too many of the blackjack tables pay the dreaded 6 to 5 and the minimums can seem high, especially compared to the other casinos on Paradise Road. And any hotel with a statue of Elvis out front can't be too bad. Maybe the Las Vegas Hilton has a special place in my heart since it is where this East Coast boy first played single deck blackjack.
