Hilton Worldwide corporate has put Las Vegas Hilton on notice that it intends to end the hotel casino licensing agreement January 1, 2012 and remove the property from Hilton HHonors. The hotel has been a Hilton since the 1970s, but the recession and downturn in casino revenue in Las Vegas has placed Colony Capital, the current owners since 2004, in financial straits. The owners blame fixed labor and benefits cost in their inability to maintain loan payments. News story link.
Las Vegas Hilton is a major business hotel adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center. The hotel is also a tram stop on the Vegas monorail.
Las Vegas Hilton is generally an incredible bargain for HHonors members and one of the lowest priced Las Vegas hotels in a major hotel loyalty program.
Thursday, June 30 rate going into the July 4 holiday weekend is $43 for a standard room and $93 for a room with Club Lounge privileges. A Grand Room for $73 is a large room at 600 square feet, even by luxury hotel standards.
$102.55 per night will put you in a standard room five nights for the entire 4th of July weekend from Thursday, June 30 through Tuesday, July 5.
The Las Vegas Hilton hotel has no resort fees; an additional charge quite common in Las Vegas. Resort fees add $20 or so per night to the cost of rooms at the Westin Casuarina and InterContinental Alliance Resorts The Venetian and The Palazzo.
