Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino
(Formerly Las Vegas Hotel and Las Vegas Hilton)
 

Westgate bought the Las Vegas Hotel during the Summer of 2014.  Earlier, Hilton Hotels terminatied it's franchise agreement with the hotel at the end of 2011.  Using some cleverness, the resort was renamed Las Vegas Hotel, allowing the hotel to keep the abbreviation LVH. The hotel was originally the International Hotel and was changed to the Hilton in 1971.

The Statue of Liberty-sized sign remains as a major landmark for the hotel along Paradise Rd. 

 

 

The Star Trek Experience closed during the Fall of 2008, however a portion of the casino retains remnants of the attraction.  This is a view of the bar in what is named "Spacequest Casino."  This and the next seven photos were taken January 1, 2013.  (For photos of the now defunct Star Trek Experience, scroll to the bottom of this page, and click hereto be taken to the STE page).

 

A dance floor, booths and tables and futuristic Star Trek motif visible as the camera pans left.

 

 

Outside of the nightclub area, the matter/anti-matter warp core processor must be navigated around to enter another part of the Star Trek-themed casino.

The Hilton Years

 
 

The Las Vegas Hilton (on Paradise Rd a few blocks from the Strip) was the largest Hilton Hotel in the world with 3,174 rooms.   At the time of this picture (New Year's Day, 2008), Barry Manilow was appearing at the Hilton.   

  

The lobby of the Hilton.  The Las Vegas Hilton has a number of notable historical events:  Elvis performed 58 consecutive sold-out concerts breaking all Vegas attendance records; in 1978 Leon Spinks defeated Muhammad Ali for the World Heavyweight title.  When the International Hotel opened, it was the largest hotel in the world.

The massive Las Vegas Hilton sign along Paradise Rd.--as tall as the Statue of Liberty. 

 

 

The Star Trek Experience (1998-2008)

 
  

 

The Las Vegas Hilton was the home of the Star Trek Experience for ten years; it closed during the Fall of 2008.  News articles have stated that the Star Trek Experience could someday move to Neonopolis in downtown.  In this picture, the Enterprise NCC 1701-A is seen suspended from the ceiling.

 

 

The casino adjacent to the Star Trek Experience had a futuristic theme.  More pictures of the Hilton's Star Trek Experience can be viewed in Defunct Vegas
