Well worth the money
Coming info to the place if you didn't see it on their website there is no free parking ANYWHERE. Even the street has metered parking. Be prepared to pay (or just take ubers everywhere). Also it was very busy so we didn't get the room we booked but they accommodated for us and we still got a decent room. The hair dryer was missing from the room, but again we got one almost immediately from room service. These are the reasons they got 4 and not 5 stars. With that being said.....
This hotel is on a beautiful part of the strip. They have a nice pool and hot tub but you can literally walk for 5 minutes and be on the beautiful beach. The view is phenomenal and the balcony gives you enough space to relax and watch the sunrise and sunset. (with ocean view rooms). The staff was great and they cleaned the rooms well. I had a great time there and the hotel fees that you pay for are worth it especially the free bike rentals and drink vouchers. The one restaurant we went to inside was delicious (we had breakfast) but there are plenty of restaurants on the strip. Being on the strip can get expensive but the Hilton was a decent price and worth the stop.
