Located central Strip in between Paris and Harrah’s and directly across the street from Caesars Palace, this is a property that has gone through perhaps more renovations, changes of ownership, name changes, and closures than any property on the Strip. It seems however they found their “footing” only a few years ago when, after a complete renovation, numerous additions, and a name change from Aladdin to Planet Hollywood, it is today one of the most popular spots on the Strip. It is easily identified by the unique neon lighting and modern feel and the large digital signage with the PH (Planet Hollywood) logo. The whole thing has a very high-tech modern and exciting feel.
Planet Hollywood caters to a younger party crowd. It is an absolute ideal location for party goers, those on Spring Break, the 20 to 30 somethings here for the summer or a weekend and who like to stay up all night partying than get up the next day for some fun at the pool or to do a little gambling without missing a step. In addition to this crowd however, the Planet Hollywood Miracle Mile of Shops has a range of boutiques that attract a range of people from the high end shoppers to the crowd the rest of the casino caters to.
Location is key here, and this hotel is almost always busy. From the rooms to the extremely popular restaurants, shops, and nightspots, if you like a quite evening you may want to look elsewhere. With that in mind, Planet Hollywood is busiest during any weekend or Holiday catering to a younger crowd, and this is most of the summer and definitely during Spring Break. Calling ahead is always recommended, and booking well in advance may be necessary at these times. Also, Planet Hollywood may fill during popular conventions so keep this in mind.
