The younger crowd loves it – Music blasts throughout the casino....sometimes a bid loud for the "older" crown but the place is alive a kicking. It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at SweetHotelDeals.us They usually have some pretty good deals on there!
Great hotel BUT.. – It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at goo.gl/FPxYD They have some of the best hotel deals on the web!
Planet Hollywood has the best party atmosphere for a casino – Shining in the spotlight of the Las Vegas Strip, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino boasts gourmet restaurants, world-class shopping and dazzling entertainment that has hotel-casino patrons cheering for an encore.
Surprisingly Good – I've decided to book Planet Hollywood Hotel because they had the after Thanksgiving online sale (can't remember if it was Black Friday sale or Cyber Monday sale) and it was 20% cheaper than any other so-called "cheapest rate guaranteed" travel site prices. They also stopped charging the stupid Resort Fee, so it was a very good deal. Because we're already in Vegas since a night before, we wanted to check-in earlier. When I emailed to inquire about it, they emailed me back and said although they can't guarantee there would be a room available before their normal check-in time, they made a note about it and would do their best to accommodate it. They also told me to drive to the Valet Parking and drop off our luggage at the bell desk so we don't have to carry them from the self parking garage through the casino to the hotel lobby. When we did so, the bell desk gave us a ticket and said just to call them when we get into our room so they could bring our luggage for us. Since our luggage was taken care of, instead of checking in early, and we were there when it's their check-out time, we decided to shop first and come back later. Once we checked in to our room, we called the bell desk. I expected it to take awhile but my sister needed a nap so I didn't mind waiting for awhile. But when it didn't show up for over an hour, I had to call them again. When I hung up, they called me right back to double check the tag number and I knew something was wrong. Another half an hour past and it still didn't show so I called again. Finally the bell man arrived and said we checked in our luggage at a different building but not "this" building. I still don't fully understand this but my guess is PH has two different buildings(?) and we were staying at South and our luggage was at Westgate or somewhere like that. I followed the valet sign and it said Planet Hollywood so I don't understand why I was at the wrong bell desk... Anyways, luckily, this luggage issue was the only problem we had with this hotel. To be honest, before I stayed here, I always thought PH to be a very cheesy Vegas hotel but it wasn't. Sure, it may not be Bellagio or those new fancier hotels but the room was well kept. The size of the room was "okay" but the bathroom was big! In the bathroom, they have separate shower stall and toilet. I didn't use it but the bathtub was also pretty big and deep. The bathroom was nice but because it was very spacious, the bedroom felt a bit smaller with queen size beds and furniture and therefore the room size was "okay." The room was nice and clean and had posters of an old movie from 70's and the props from the same movie were displayed in a coffee table. I wonder if each room has different movie and its props. The amenities were simple but it seems like majority of hotels in Vegas have cut down on them also. Overall, we were very happy with this hotel and its value. One thing that stood out during our stay was everybody and I mean everybody from the casino staff to the front desk and even the bell desk guy who was covered with tattoo were very nice and helpful. Was it a coincidence that we encountered all those pleasant people? I don't know but PH should be very proud themselves for having such great staff and definitely should keep it up. Because when all those hotels on the Strip have similar prices and amenities, I will choose and come back to PH because of the staff and their services. Oh yeah, and of course, no Resort Fee helps
Planet Hollywood - one of the best hotels in Las Vegas! – I like Las Vegass' Planet Hollywood a lot and I'll tell you why. Because (a) it's in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip and (b) it's not too big compared to other hotels and thus way harder to get lost in.
The silly part is that Aladdin still surfaces in random of details of the redesigned hotel.
Our room was big, it overlooked the pool and we could even hear the live DJ in our room!
By the way, the pool at PH is a good one. I could literally romp in the water and lay out on the huge daybeds all day if there weren't so many other exciting things to do in Vegas!
The lettuce wraps and Szechuan beef at the PF Chang's in the casino were excellent and overall, I am glad we stayed at Planet Hollywood. I'd stay here again!
For Families only. No good for singles/ couples. – Heard it was a new, hip place. It wasn't. When I checked in, noticed all the families with kids. They were having one of those pathetic "dress your 3 year old like an adult" beauty contests. Kids (3-12 years old) in the Casino, kids @ the pool. Kids EVERYWHERE!!!
Checked out PREVE. Nothing like Miami. Had Bottle Service reservations, yet still gave me run-around @ entrance even though club wasn't full. (Just like L.A!). The girls were mediocre @ best.
The food @ the coffe shop was mediocre. I went with buddies. Met two separate couples who also said they were never coming back. TOO MANY KIDS!!!!
Lovin' it! – After a horrid experience at the Las Vegas Hilton, I salvaged the rest of my trip and came here. I don't regret it at all! The bathroom was a palace in itself, with a private toilet and a Jacuzzi tub, but the bedroom, along with the view, was awe-inspiring. Also, the Spice Market Buffet downstairs is pricey, but the food and variety are amazing! I wouldn't gamble here, but if you came to see a show, do some great shopping, or have a nice relaxing room, by all means, come here!
A Well Located Hip Deservedly 4 Star Hotel – Just returned from Planet Hollywood. We stayed for two nights, I thought the staff was excellent, the room was very nice (large and well decorated with a wonderful soak tub), I agree with the other posters about the oddness of some of the memorabilia in the rooms (we had the shirt that Macaulay Culkin "actually wore" in some movie I had never heard of). The casino was beautiful, interesting tasteful bars and small restaurants and cafes all around. The tables and the machines were about as good as those at any of the other casinos. The location is fantastic. You are right in the middle of where you want to be. Overall, we felt it is a very nice hip hotel with a well trained and attentive staff. We went to dinner one night at the Spice Market Buffet which is one floor down from the casino. There was a line to go and stand in a line, to go and stand in another line (probably a total of a 30 minute wait), but I must tell you, the food was absolutely outstanding (fabulous rare standing rib roast, King Crab legs with drawn butter, fresh oysters, properly cooked salmon, lamb, duck, shishkabob, I can't even remember all of the available entries. Just everything that is a favorite was there and wonderfully prepared.
Vegas goes Hollywood chic at this center Strip movie-themed property featuring modern architecture, hip nightclubs and first-class dining. – In Short
Sitting in the middle of the action, Planet Hollywood, with its 2,600 movie-themed rooms, is a haven for film buffs. With hot spots such as Koi, Strip House, Heart Bar and Prive among its many restaurants and nightclub options, the resort's youthful visitors and A-list celebrities have plenty of places to play. The casino has more than 1,700 slot machines, a poker room and high-limit area, while the property contains a full service spa, two swimming pools, a wedding chapel and mall.
Stay ANYWHERE else – I happen to travel to Vegas for business once a month or so for the last 5 years and this was the first time I stayed at PH since the remodel. I found it very unsaftisfying compared to other locations in Vegas.
The signs in the elevators have the old information so you never know where you are going (example, the sports book is not on the third floor anymore). My room smelled like turpentine and the trash hadn't been taken out (which in Vegas is very disgusting). Still, the room was large and the bathroom was nice. The spa facilities were subpar, the men's dry suana haad loose floorboards, the steam sauna was broken and wouldn't shut off making it impossible to stay in there, and the whirlpool temperature was lukewarm.
Worst of all was the service at the gaming tables. The "executive casino host" Lorna was rude and condensending and basically lied to me. I am by no means a high-roller ($50 a hand), but the pit boss called her over to "rate my play". She said it was nice I was playing so much and that I would be able "level up within a couple of hours" with that amount of play. Many hours and dollars later I was told that it just wasn't enough and that at that dollar amount it never would be. I don't really care about the rewards program (free use of the subpar spa is not worth it) and I never had the expectation of getting any rewards, but I felt very betrayed when they told me it would happen and didn't.
To end on a positive note, it is located in a great spot on the strip; next to all the good hotels.
