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 PH Towers Westgate offers 1,201 apartmentlike rooms and a separate pool.
Planet Hollywood is energetic and edgy and full of Hollywood glitz, very much like its most famous resident, Britney Spears. The newly renovated rooms have a contemporary feel, with modern furnishings and artwork that fit right in with the resort’s vibe.
The bathroom is well-appointed with a separate tub and shower and amenities by Gilchrist & Soames.
There are eight glittering chandeliers alongside the escalator on the way to lobby. The vibe is decidedly disco, with crystal-laden ball and LED lights behind the front desk. You almost want to look around to see if there are movie cameras nearby.
Resorts are always one-upping each other when it comes to pools, but Planet Hollywood is the first to introduce the FlowRider, which lets you hang ten and test your balancing skills.
The Balinese-inspired decor of Mandara Spa will transport you to another world. Its signature offering is the Ceremony of Love, which includes an exotic bathing ritual and a side-by-side full body massage with your significant other.
Ready for your close-up? The Planet Hollywood Salon will get you on your way with professional makeup application, airbrush tanning and eyelash enhancement.
The fitness center offers private training as well as cardio and strength-training machines.
Gordon Ramsay is here, or at least his Gordon Ramsay Burger is. Strip House Steakhouse exudes mystery and glamour with its dark walls and textured booths, and the Spice Market Buffet takes your taste buds on a trip around the world.
Heart Bar is a sexy perch from which to take in all the casino action while sipping a cocktail or three. Extra Lounge is also another prime people-watching spot where you might even spot a star. We hear it’s a celebrity favorite.
YOU SHOULD KNOW The noise level at Planet Hollywood is high. Embrace the party vibe or you’ll be spending a lot of time in your room.
Planet Hollywood is situated in the center of the Strip and neighboring resorts are within walking distance. But you’ll definitely need transportation to and from the airport.
Planet Hollywood boasts Miracle Mile, a shopping center stretching more a mile long and filled with shopping and dining options. Check out PBR Rock Bar & Grill (10-minute walk), a raucous gathering of cowboys and cowgirls drinking large containers of colorful drinks, of Cabo Wabo Cantina, an equally lively chain restaurant from rocker Sammy Hagar offering Mexican grub, beach cocktails, and an outdoor patio.
Check out Tipsy Robot (10-minute walk) and see if mixologists are in danger of losing their jobs to automation. Walk outside to the pedestrian overpass and find out which level of the Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan (15-minute walk) you like best.
WHY WE LIKE IT
It takes a specific kind personality to fully love Planet Hollywood, though we suspect the star appeal is what drives people here. It’s definitely glamorous and sexy—a stereotypical Las Vegas destination, if there ever was one.
