Give Thanks for Holiday Family Travel at Elara

This Owner's thankful to have spent Thanksgiving with the Hilton Grand Vacations family

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday because it’s a chance to embrace the upcoming holiday season's excitement. With so many things to do at Elara by Hilton Grand Vacations, our family decided to spend Thanksgiving there. I couldn't wait to combine two of my favorite things. 

My Vegas holiday family getaway started when I checked in to my “home away from home.” I was excited and grateful to have close friends and family to celebrate my most-anticipated family holiday of the year.


Elara's not only a beautiful resort, but it’s family-friendly, making it ideal for a large family holiday. The resort features spacious 2- and 3-bedroom suites and comfortable accommodations for a big table of food and delicious desserts. 

And for that extra-large group, Elara also has a 4-bedroom penthouse. Imagine 2,324 to 2,902 square feet to kick back and enjoy with up to 10 friends and family members with Las Vegas city views as your backdrop for Thanksgiving dinner. Talk about a gratitude-worthy experience.  

Besides being one of my favorite days to celebrate family, it’s also when families get to strategize their holiday shopping. And if they're like our family, venture out to find the best bargains and fight the large crowds of non-apologetic holiday shoppers on Black Friday.

Elara has a world-class shopping mall at its front door, which makes holiday shopping convenient and fun. Don't worry, if you prefer to skip the shopping crowds you won't lack for things to do. 

What I appreciated the most on this trip was the excitement of staying in the center of The Strip. We were in the heart of it all, in one of the most stunning places in the world and enjoying some of the most exclusive restaurants in the country.

Elara is an exquisite resort with a magnificent staff of really dedicated team members that bring to life the holidays' traditions and work to make your holiday family vacation memorable. 

I appreciate all the hard-working team members at Elara whose personal touch and kindness made my Thanksgiving one of the best experiences away from home. Extraordinary people like Michael, Alejandro, and the Elara family truly made our vacation unforgettable.
