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 go to Las Vegas quite often, and decided to stay at Planet Hollywood for the first time. We arrived a bit early, and was able to get our room, Robert at check in was friendly and helpful. We stayed in a basic room which was clean and very nice. Nice sized bath too.
The Hotel Rooms were large and clean and the Hotel was in a great location. Overall, we were pleased with our stay. The lack of a pronounced Hollywood theme was surprisingly missing. Our group was even saying that movie posters would have added to the missing theme. The casino had one of the most confusing layouts and was generally more smokey compared to several that we visited. Free wifi only for two devices was disappointing for a family of 4.
What a perfect location !
We spent 4 nights and the hotel staff treated us very well .The hotel was clean, rooms were spacious and there was great shopping at Miracle Mile shops.The staff was courteous and friendly.
I would highly recommend this hotel.
