Lamest name change ever? The Hilton considers ‘LVH Las Vegas Hotel & Casino’
Wed, Nov 30, 2011 (3:04 p.m.)
You’ve got to be kidding us. In a town where branding is everything comes news that the Las Vegas Hilton, which will cease to be a Hilton at the end of the year due to a license termination from the hotel chain, will likely change its name to LVH Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. Wow. Seriously? Let’s begin with the fact that you’re now saying “Las Vegas” twice in the name of your hotel. But even if you can overlook the redundancy, what does the “H” stand for? Clearly it means “hotel,” unless it’s a sneaky way for the new owners to imply the hotel is still “Hilton”? We’re happy the hotel will survive and that everyone will keep their jobs, but this name is the equivalent of going to bat with two strikes.
LVH - Las Vegas Hotel
As the place where Elvis Presley broke all Vegas show attendance records when it was still called the International Hotel, the LVH - Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is a time capsule of classic Vegas. Its name changed from the Las Vegas Hilton in early 2012.
While the feeling is traditional, the hotel has recently gone through renovations. From the front desk to the guest rooms, all surfaces were remodeled. Crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling of the 74,000 square-foot casino, where there is high limit table room with high limit slots. Just off from the casino, there is the world's largest sports book, featuring 300 seats, 42 televisions and 30 big screens.
The dining choices at the property range from the award-winning Benihana, a Japanese steakhouse, to The Buffet, where guests can enjoy the wide selection of choices. After dinner, guests can take advantage of the star-studded entertainment. The hotel also makes it convenient to casino-hop as one of the stops on the Las Vegas Monorail.
