Where to Stay in Las Vegas? – Hilton Hotel & Casino

Hilton Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada

Hilton Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada

I stayed here for the first time over the weekend since they were running one of the best deals in Vegas. This is normally rare I’ve found over a few years with this hotel since they seem to book well due to the location near the convention center.
I was familiar with the hotel before staying here for the first time. I love the buffet and the gambling area isn’t too shabby. The sports betting is a great place to have some fun and watch the games over the weekend.

Now with my hotel room I became quickly unimpressed with the hotel sadly. Once I arrived they checked me in and I was off to the north tower. Once inside I wanted to place a wake up call but nobody ever picked up……

The room had a nice makeover but it was missing parts like the gear cover to our door. Then moving to the bathroom the bath was chipped all over the place and lacking paint on about 15% of it. Getting in around 2:00am we went on a hunt for a quick drink before we headed back to bed and couldn’t figure out how to get one……

All and all book the Hilton for pure convenience or a Star Trek wedding. If your stuck at the convention center for a huge convention (like SEMA) where the taxi line has more people in it than all the Strip Clubs in Clark County you will be glad you picked the Hilton Hotel. If you want luxury feeling or any kind of service you should look elsewhere.

Where to stay in Louisville, Kentucky? Galt House Hotel & Suites

Louisville, Kentucky Skyline - Galt House Hotel

Louisville, Kentucky Skyline - Galt House Hotel

This place has a great location in the downtown area and some amazingly large suites but the place has some serious problems. First off, the deli has no real candy (I wanted a Snickers at 4am) and the lady looked at me like I was nuts so I ate some homemade cookie. At least let’s carry some normal stuff.

The hotel room is huge in size but mostly for no reason and our room was kind of falling apart. The shower door fell apart and the room has tons of random closets that were super strange. The plumbing was pretty sketch and the whole hotel has a strange old vibe.

The front desk people just seem to be confused by requests or why you would want to talk to them. The night manager told me I had to talk to his boss on what should of been a super simple task. All in all I would come back but I would price shop around the waterfront area first.
