Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino Review
Everything at Planet Hollywood is designed to make ordinary people feel like stars, and the lodging accommodations are no exception. The modern standard rooms are a spacious 450 square feet, and feature a king or queen bed, a 27-inch flat-screen television, iPod docking stations, plush chairs, and warm, fuzzy robes. On higher floors, some of the hotel's pricier suites come with butler service—the "PHabulous" suites feature six plasma televisions, as well as foosball and pool tables, and stripper poles in the showers (of course). Each of these suites also comes with its own private butler. The adjacent Planet Hollywood Towers Westgate offers 1,201 apartment-like rooms and a separate pool.
The tease: Planet Hollywood's main attraction has become PEEPSHOW, a theatrical striptease starring Coco, also known as Mrs. Ice-T.
The premieres: Because Planet Hollywood is obsessed with celebrities, the property often hosts world-premiere events that attract stars from all over the world.
The restaurants: At the upscale Koi and Strip House, paparazzi are a common sight. Yolo's is good too, not as much for celeb-sightings, but more for its fresh Mexican food.
The dancers: On the casino floor, inside "The Pleasure Pit," scantily clad dancers hug the poles while men play blackjack and stare.
The Spa by Mandara still has traces of its original Arabian theme (from when the property was the Aladdin), but female guests rave about the in-house nail salon.
The pool deck offers limited bar and food service, and the better-late-than-never Pleasure Pool VIP section is swanky.
For a shopping fix, hit the onsite mall, the Miracle Mile Shops, which include a new H&M department store and Urban Outfitters, to name a few.
