We're enjoying ourselves here but the owners of the property are facing serious financial problems.
We enjoy the place and stay here because of the significant benefits our Hilton status provides: express check-in, "upgraded" rooms, free buffet breakfast with access to the "VIP" line, etc.
There are signs. They're offering rooms at $43 and up this summer, they're off the strip, although the monorail stops there, and one of their largest neighbors, the Sahara, shut down awhile ago. For us, four free nights and bunch of coupon deals make for a great deal.
This place has a lot of history to it, but there are a lot of famous Vegas properties that are now history, so only time will tell.
In the meantime, we enjoyed a performance of Nunsense yesterday afternoon for half price and ate in the steakhouse last night with $25 off (still pricey), using a couple of the coupons in our current package.
We'll keep our fingers crossed for the Las Vegas Hilton, but this town is a constant reminder that you can't count on luck to succeed.
