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.
They really need to make some changes if they don't want to go bankrupt... again. First of all... it is impossible to even drive into the hotel without getting lost, with all the construction going on STILL! How long is this going to take? They should have shut down and just got it done, but it's taking forever and I'm sure they're losing money because of it. I had to specifically ask for an upgraded room and it is so half-a$$ed. The tiling in the bathroom has been downgraded for unclear reasons. The fixtures are still Aladdin themed. The extremely large and dark furniture makes the room look much smaller... as does the tiny window. My room was the "Tank Girl" room, with two framed stills from the movie... the movie "Tank Girl??" WTF?
When I first arrived I had to call a technician to replace the tv box because the movies weren't available to me. I will say it was done relatively quickly... but still an inconvenience. The pricey internet was extremely slow (dial-up slow at times) and totally unreliable. It kept wavering in and out. The casino upgrade is fine but the surrounding walls are so dark with zero art on them. It's kind of depressing. Like an office building in the seventies. The slot machines are all older and cheap looking. Nothing new at all. The new Miracle Mile mall is less than half finished with lots of the old themey stuff hanging around... and why does it close so early? Vegas is a 24 hour town, isn't it? The worst offense of all came when I decided to stay an extra night instead of drive back to Los Angeles on too little sleep. They made it so difficult for me to spend more money in their hotel! I had to go down to the front desk where I was treated as though I was trying to cheat them. The clerk was rude and short with me. She acted like she was doing me a favor. It was almost worth the effort to pack up and move to another hotel! But then I remembered how hot it was outside. I hope they get it together soon.
very nice rooms – I stayed here right after it changed to Planet Hollywood. At first I thought the new theme was lame (does Planet Hollywoood even exist anymore?). But once we saw our room I was happy. The bathroom was huge and very nice. The beds were pretty comfy. The room had movie props and posters decorating it. Ours had a bomb prop from Batman. Anyway, I like the new Hollywood theme. The reception area needs some work, but it had this cool light changing back wall. The buffet was VERY good. I usually don't like buffet shrimp, but they were good. I think once the remodel is finished this hotel is gonna be hot!
Love it – Great hotel, You want to shop this is the place. There is not a long casino that you have to walk thru. It is great to shop in the stores. The rooms are great also you get a view of the fountains in most rooms.
Split personality – So the Aladdin's not really going to be the Aladdin for much longer. It was supposed to have already switched over to Planet Hollywood, but the most evidence I've seen of that is a lot of the slots have Planet Hollywood written on them. They are kind of lost inbetween 2 identities and it shows. When it was just the Aladdin, it was pretty bland for me. When it's Planet Hollywood, it's probably going to be a sleeper for me still.
NICE BIG ROOMS – this is a very nice afforable hotel, the rooms are large and clean, friendly hotel staff, nice restaurants,the dessert passage is a really cool shopping mall. nice spa, my one complaint is the parking, the garage is very nice but it is about a half mile away from the hotel rooms!! it is a long LONG walk from your room throught the casino and then all the way throught the dessert passage! a good 15 min walk to get from your car to your room! but that is my only complaint , i would stay here again any time.
Great Value! – Stayed there back in February of 2006, and will be staying again in December of this year. Not a whole lot of "wow" factor in the casino, as it is partly under construction, but the rooms are GREAT! They're 450 sq feet (as opposed to the usual 300). The bathrooms are HUGE with a seperate tub and shower (the tub was big with high walls - ideal for actually *taking a bath*!). The beds are extremely comfortable (even the pillows were comfortable)... but best of all, the rooms are *quiet*. I head a room almost directly across from the elevators, and could hardly hear any noise from the hallway. The location of the hotel can't be beat, the rooms are truly 4 stars, and you can usually find a competitive rate to stay there. One of the best values on the strip!
Good value – We stayed at the Aladdin just two weeks ago. It was a decent room, niced big bathroom. It was a little cumbersome getting around due to the construction. However, the staff were friendly, and the location is good.
Decent value – Good for now will be better after construction is over.Value is good for club members. Location is very good also.
