Elvis has left the Las Vegas Hilton, at least for a short time. When the Las Vegas Hilton began the initial phase of a planned five-year redevelopment and expansion of the aging off-Strip resort, the statue Elvis Presley, who used to grace the Hilton showroom, was moved from its place at the property's front entrance into storage.
Once the lobby, main entry area, porte cochere and front desk are remodeled, Elvis will be returned for guests to enjoy and photograph. "Elvis will be back, we promise," said Las Vegas Hilton spokesman Ira Sternberg. He said the current construction is expected to be completed in December.
