So you’re planning a trip to Las Vegas. Maybe you’re looking for a fun weekend away, a memorable bachelor party or simply somewhere luxurious to lay out and tan. There is an overwhelming assortment of hotels — and a system designed to capture your money.

But if you’re a Hilton Honors member with a few points to burn, you’ve got options. Let’s take a look at the best Hilton hotels in Las Vegas and where to find them.

Top Hilton hotels in Vegas for award nights

We've broken down our list by area: South Strip, North Strip and the Lake Las Vegas area (for those who need a break from the bright lights of the city's most happening street).

South Strip

Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas

Formerly the Mandarin Oriental hotel, Hilton has since rebranded this non-gaming property as the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas. Although it maintains much of its original glamour and decorations, the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas includes some truly unique features — like a Moët and Chandon champagne vending machine.

With an unparalleled location and luxurious finishes, your stay here will run you around 80,000 points per night. While you’re visiting, don’t forget to visit the Skybar — a bar with a great view of the skyline located on the 23rd floor.

The Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas can also be booked using the AmEx Fine Hotels and Resorts program, which means you can use the $200 annual prepaid hotel credit included with The Platinum Card® from American Express to stay here. Terms apply.

If you’re looking for a more conventional Las Vegas vacation, consider the Tropicana Las Vegas, a property that features complimentary parking and plenty of gaming. Save yourself the $37 per day resort fee and spend just 21,000 points for a night here.

🤓Nerdy Tip

You won’t have to pay resort fees when redeeming points at Hilton hotels, which can save you hundreds of dollars on a multi-night stay.

Although it’s located a bit south on the Strip, you’re still in the middle of the action, with fellow casinos like the MGM Grand and Excalibur Hotel as neighbors.

North Strip

Crockfords Las Vegas, LXR Hotels & Resorts

A member of Hilton’s newest luxury brand, LXR, Crockfords Las Vegas celebrated its grand opening in June of 2021. Along with the Las Vegas Hilton and the Conrad Las Vegas, Crockfords makes up one of the three hotels located inside the Resorts World complex. In addition to access to the standard Resorts World amenities, Crockfords features an exclusive entrance and its own poolside oasis.

You’ll pay 80,000 points per night to stay here with a standard room reward, which will grant you a city view room of 550 square feet.

If you’re itching to try out a stay at Resorts World but don’t feel up to splurging for Crockfords, you may want to consider the Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World. It still has access to seven different pools and over 40 restaurants and bars, but a room here can be booked for as little as 35,000 Hilton points per night.

Hilton offers your fifth night free on standard award nights, which means you can swing a five-night stay here for just 140,000 points out of pocket.

Hilton Grand Vacations on the Las Vegas Strip

For those who don't necessarily want to spend their time at the slots, the Hilton Grand Vacations on the Las Vegas Strip hotel could be a good option. This property is a little more family-friendly and features a basketball court along with two massive pools. There are plenty of options for rooms here, including a spacious three bedroom suite.

A standard room starts at 37,000 points per night and includes a kitchenette — a rare feature in any Strip hotel.

Lake Las Vegas

Searching for Hilton properties in Las Vegas that are a little more secluded? Located 30 minutes away from the Strip, the Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa fits the bill. This property is nestled adjacent to the MonteLago village, and you can enjoy boating, water jetpacks and even sandy beaches.

A room at this Mediterranean-style oasis starts at just 31,000 points per night.

How to earn Hilton points quickly

If you’re running low on Hilton Honors points, don’t worry. There are plenty of ways to boost your balance, including opening a new card and pooling your points.

  • Transfer points from American Express Membership Rewards. You can transfer your AmEx points to Hilton at a rate of 1:2, which means one AmEx point becomes two Hilton points. Terms apply.
