Just Checked into the Las Vegas Hilton

Las Vegas – how appropriate to start this year’s travels!

I’m here in Vegas for the product launch of Q-TV, at the Consumer Electronics Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC).   I’m expecting the usual zoo – but so far, everything is pretty quiet.

It’s been 12 years since I’ve set foot in the Las Vegas Hilton.    Same general marble look for the entryway – and this hotel – still huge by most standards,  (but not by Vegas Standards) is quiet before the storm.

My room on the 27th floor of the East Tower is about as far as you can get from the desk.  It’s been nicely updated – Crisp Linens, Vegas colors scheme  (red and orange drapes and carpeting – but actually not loud), comfortable mattress,  a small closet with double mirrors, decent in-room safe and a nicely sized personal fridge (no minibar).  The bathroom was updated and has a smart marble vanity,  garden oval tub with decent water pressure.

Compared to my last stay at the Luxor,  (which I want to love but don’t), this is a dramatic upgrade.

For $60 (off peak rate before the show) – it’s a deal!   For $275 (show rate) – not so much – but still decent!

Stay tuned for news of the setup.
