So with the recent purchase of the LVH (the former Las Vegas Hilton) by Westgate Resorts a timeshare company I decided to take a quick monorail ride to the resort to see what changes had been made so far. Because the purchase was so recent I didn’t expect huge changes but as you can see from the pictures a lot of the former LVH sign age had been replaced with new Westgate signs. Inside the property the lobby, huge open casino floor and large sports book were pretty much the same as before as was most of the public areas and, for midweek pretty busy including a large group of Asian female flight attendants waiting to check in (no I didn’t take pictures of them sorry). The only real changes inside where the Westgate timeshare salespeople down the corridors off the main public areas in several spots. The corridor down to the Pizza Hut restaurants retail space has been transformed in to a room showcasing Westgate Resort properties and many small offices where I presume they can take you if you are interested in a timeshare. The former Las Vegas Hilton which more recently was known as the LVH is a great property but the drawback has always been its location its great for conventioneers because of its location next to the Convention Center but outside of conventions traffic is slower. The hotel is on the monorail route which does bring some tourist traffic and with the opening of the SLS soon should help a little in non convention times; While we are no fans of being bugged by timeshare people maybe the purchase of the property by Westgate Resorts will help fill up the rooms in off peak times which will be good for the property.
