Vegas feels less like a city than its own self-contained universe, with enough restaurants, bars, nightclubs, casinos, shops and performance venues to keep you well-fed and entertained for years. And when exploring such a universe, you’ll to want to anchor yourself to the perfect planet. Choose Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino, which resides right in the heart of the Strip, so hundreds of those destinations for dining, gaming, shopping and more are within steps of your fit-for-a-movie-star accommodation. In fact, many of them are directly downstairs.
Indeed, the Condé Nast Traveller-approved Caesars Entertainment property’s eateries include Spice Market Buffet, which USA TODAY voted the Strip’s best buffet, plus a Gordon Ramsay burger joint, a steakhouse, a Koi location and a Mexican grill. There’s more than a mile of shops, plus a slew of fantastic bars, two pool decks, a casino and the only FlowRider in Sin City. And as far as which limited-engagement shows and residencies will be taking to The AXIS theater throughout the year? Only all the ones you’ve been hearing about for months: Backstreet Boys’ Larger than Life, J. Lo’s All I Have and Britney’s Piece of Me.
Your newly remodeled Ultra Hip room was inspired by celebrity and Hollywood culture and features seriously bold and glitzy décor, plush furnishings and luxurious bedding. Obviously, there’s also a generous flat-screen TV, so you can watch all your favorite Hollywood movies.
Twelve eating and drinking destinations at Planet Hollywood include a location of L.A. hit Koi, a Starbucks branch and a pin-up-girl-themed pizzeria purporting to serve the Strip’s largest slices. Sample cuisine from around the world at Spice Market Buffet, USA TODAY’s best overall buffet in Vegas, or get all-American at Gordon Ramsay Burger. Wash your eats of choice down with libations from the four bars, such as PH Shiver’s 46-oz. Bling Bottle or a sip from EXTRA Lounge – often patronized by correspondents of the TV program of that name.
Planet Hollywood Spa by Mandara is a Balinese-inspired space that comprises more than 32,000 square feet and 40 treatment rooms (including six couple’s rooms). Massages take their cues from ancient healing rituals, such as in the Mandara Four Hands Massage that combines Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and Swedish massage techniques; body treatments incorporate plant and flower infusions. There are also a salon and fitness center.
From your abode on the Vegas Strip, you’re within easy walking distance of local attractions, like live entertainment, legendary nightclubs and concert venues. You’re also near sprawling malls; impressive golf courses; and, most famously, plenty of casino slots machines and tables – starting with those already in your hotel. It’s not the only on-site attraction, either. Planet Hollywood houses two pool decks, the only FlowRider in Las Vegas, 1.2 miles of shops and multiple theaters. One of these is The AXIS, where Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, J. Lo and Pitbull will be performing this year, the first three as residents.
How to Get There
WE GOT ROBBED FROM OUR HOTEL ROOM!!!!!!! VERY UNSAFE HOTEL!!!!! If there is one review you need to read it's THIS one! It was my second time staying at Planet Hollywood this passed weekend for my 21st birthday and it completely ruined my weekend. Several times throughout the night our door was being pushed and knocked on... sounds like nothing but it leads to something. Saturday night my friends and I got back from our hotel and as time was passing we noticed several valuables from our room was missing. One of the items that was missing was my friends purse, they left everything that was in that bag and wrapped it around her towel, but took the bag, her wallet and a makeup bag. Which was weird cause who would steal a Coach bag??? Also, usually people take the whole entire purse but they left her items behind? Then I noticed my JBL speaker was gone, my friend's giant portable charger (the big ones worth over $90) and all our cash that was tucked away (we left the hotel with our credit/debit cards but cash behind). The clothes in our luggage was rearranged as well, we felt absolutely disgusted. We called the front desk and let them know how unsafe we felt and they moved us to a smaller room which wasn't even what got me upset... The security named Don (who was very sweet and he was very open and honest with us) told us that THERE ARE NO CAMERAS IN THE HOTEL HALLWAY!!! He said 9 times out of 10 they never know who comes inside the rooms, THE SECURITY HIMSELF TOLD US THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME TO THEIR GUESTS!!!!! THE DOORS DO NOT LOCK ALL THE WAY EVEN IF YOU THINK THE DOORS ARE LOCKED!!!!! We spoke to the hotel manager, some short guy named Ron or Ronny (can't remember because he was irrelevant) and he didn't even bother to apologize or give us anything in return. His face was blank and with no remorse it was the scariest thing because it seemed so normalized!!! This is a VERY UNSAFE place to stay!!! I recommend you stay anywhere else BUT here!!! One of the worst experiences in all the hotels I've stayed in I would never imagine anyone coming to steal items from your room when you're out. :(
only place will stay when i go to vegas middle of strip so it is easy to go to any place on the strip. great staff and great places to eat there also cant wait till my next trip in 2020 counting day till stay there again
I love visiting PH, but wish there was better ventilation or no smoking. The smell of smoke is a bit much so I usually only stay briefly because of the environment. Gaming options always available, and small poker tournaments every few hours.
