    Hi Guys,

    Booked to stop in this hotel in June with 4 guys in a one bedroom suite, which I believe is the max number of people allowed to stay.
    Another one of my friends has now decided he wants to tag along and booked a flight only as the package deals available from the UK are astronomical.

    Do you think he will be able to crash in our room? Or do you think the hotel will catch on and stop this?

    Thanks

    I have never had any issues inviting guests to my room in any American hotel .
    Keep in mind that elara is a timeshare resort. The room will probably be very nice, and large with a kitchen, but no daily housekeeping. Also if you got a special offer, you may be required to attend a timeshare presentation. If you are not required, they will try to get you to attend one by offering show tickets. Don't take the bait. The shows are second tier that you can buy very cheaply through discount outlets, and the presentation will take a lot of your time.

    with 5guys I would suggest 2 or 3 rooms at a lower tier hotel downtown, which might be the same price.

    if you got this through a package, read the fine print regarding the housekeeping and presentation. If you are not required, they will definitely ask you. A polite but firm " no thank you" should be your response.

    You'll be fine. Just make sure to get a few room keys since you need them to get on the elevator. Also be warned the pull out bed is one of the worst beds I've ever laid on. I felt bad for my buddy who had to sleep on that thing.

    you should be fine, if your thinking about buying HGVC dont buy from them, there are a couple re-sale companies that sell the exact same memberships for cheaper

    Of all the hotels in Vegas to try what you're planning, Elara might be the worst one. They were very strict about room keys there two years ago and security had a little key reader at the elevators to make sure the keys were active before letting us up.

    The guy who booked after us, knows the risk involved, I can't see how they would be able to control it, I could just say he's a guest and he's coming to our room, he doesn't need to have his own room key!
