[IMG]http://i253.photobucket.com/albums/hh70/e_1835/Elvis-Hiltonx.jpg[/IMG The Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas will always be associated with Elvis Presley, the man who made more money for the hotel than any other act in history, but news just in shows that the name, the "Hilton Hotel" will become a thing in Vegas history as the famous hotel name will vanish as of January 1st 2012.
Hilton Worldwide notified the owner of the famed Las Vegas Hilton that it plans to terminate its franchise license agreement by the end of the year.
Hilton Worldwide said that as of Jan. 1, its franchise agreement with Colony Resorts LVH Acquisitions LLC, owner and operator of the Las Vegas Hilton, will have been terminated, forcing the off-Strip hotel to give up the Hilton name and loyalty program.
In 1969, Elvis performed 58 consecutive sold-out shows, playing to 130,157 fans. The King broke his own attendance record three times in February 1970, August 1970 and August 1972. Elvis also maintained a residence at the Hilton until December 1976.

Time changes things- perhaps they can keep the hotel now as just one of the Elvis sites for fans to come, visit and remember/I'm sure they would, especially if
there were things there from his lifetime, that hotel was only big news and exciting because he had worked there his first live show in years and his fans
made it more famous by coming out in droves from all over the world. Without
him there the excitement was gone-at least for us and most of our friends that came with us and went on their own at times, to see him working there.
Sad to have one more place of memories go away-
