Ok, i can usually be a little out of the loop on hotel take overs, etc. So can someone confirm that Planet Hollywood tower is now called Elara ?

LaRue,

Yes it is very true. I used to stay at PH Towers almost exclusively. The rooms were large, sexy and located where I could do things on my downtime. Convenient to Miracle Mile for food and shopping.

I have stayed there once now since they changed hands and most likely will not go back. The wifi is slow, painfully. The parking is now horrible for guests that would come to visit me and not much better for hotel guests. Security at the elevator seems to be less friendly.

Finally Hilton ( and I don't know if this extends to its Grand Destination properties ) has a significant security protocol to weed out potential illegal activities on their properties.

Just my two cents

I have not confirmed but from talking to some players at the Poker Tables that went to the sales "presentation" -- they are now selling them as timeshares. 2 Weeks a year starting off at $200,000.... Lol..

I can think of a million things better to do with $200,000 in Vegas.

;)

They have always been timeshares... was a Westgate timeshare development.. but the lenders foreclosed and hired Hilton to run it.  Should actually improve things as the former manager was out of $$$$$$
