There is no chance MGM Grand, which dominates the northeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue (the busiest intersection on the Strip), will ever become dated. In fact, the iconic resort has completed a glamorous makeover. All of the rooms have been remodeled and several of the property's entertainment, dining and nightlife experiences are brand new. Today, as in the past, guests can always count on unparalleled entertainment at the resort. First and foremost, the MGM Grand is an entertainment destination. Its 16,000-seat Grand Garden Arena hosts concerts by the world's top artists, championship boxing matches, award shows and so much more. Magician David Copperfield is a regular headliner in the more intimate Hollywood Theatre -- and he isn't disappearing any time soon. In addition to “the greatest illusionist of our time,” the venue hosts an assortment of talented musicians and comedians.MGM Grand is also home to the Cirque du Soleil production "KÀ." This show is a visual feast. It's comprised of acrobatic feats and often compared to a martial arts movie -- just in theater format. And Brad Garrett's Comedy Club hosts an array of nationally known comedians who will have you doubled over in fits of laughter. An 8,500-square-foot performance theater featuring Beacher's Madhouse pushes the boundaries of entertainment and fantasy. It offers two experiences: a late-evening club atmosphere with a circus-like energy that is already open and an early show that will debut in early 2014.With more than 20 restaurants, you can have a taste of the finest cuisine from around the world at MGM Grand. Many acclaimed international chefs helm one-of-a-kind dining experiences here.Joël Robuchon is the namesake restaurant of the legendary chef who has received numerous awards. He is the first and only three-star "Michelin Guide" winner in Las Vegas. His French cuisine creations are like works of art. Guests can choose to indulge in a tasting menu or order à la carte in either the elegant main room or a garden-designed dining room. Next door, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon offers a similarly divine menu, but in a less formal atmosphere.  At Craftsteak, Tom Colicchio has the preparation of steaks, chops and seafood down to a science. Michael Mina Pub 1842 provides a distinctive take on classic pub fare along with an extensive selection of beers and cocktails. You can indulge in the richness of Creole cuisine at Emeril's New Orleans Fish House. Another imaginative menu -- with items like his famous wood-fired pizzas as well as pastas, grilled fish and succulent meat -- is available in the Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill. The Morton Group's restaurant Crush has a cosmopolitan shared-plate menu with selections inspired by traditional favorites as well as standouts from regions around the world. And then there's Pearl, The Grand Wok and Sushi Bar, Fiamma Trattoria & Bar, Shibuya...and the list of fabulous restaurants goes on and on. Casual meals are available too at MGM Grand. The jungle-themed Rainforest Café provides a wild time for all ages, thanks to animatronic critters. Hecho en Vegas prepares traditional Sonoran cuisine as well as popular Mexican favorites. For an inexpensive breakfast, lunch or dinner, head to the MGM Grand Buffet, which dishes up more than 30 different entrées, pastas, casseroles and fresh veggies. Avenue Café is another option with plenty of choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner.In addition, quick bites are available at the MGM Grand Food Court, Project Pie and three sprawling Starbucks. Or grab a quick treat at Blizz Frozen Yogurt, Corner Cakes and the decadent Sugar Factory retail store.For relaxation, there are five outdoor swimming pools in the 6.6-acre Grand Pool Complex, complete with a 1,000-foot river and waterfalls. And summertime always brings steamy fun, courtesy of Wet Republic. The chic ultra pool provides guests with a nightlife-like atmosphere featuring private bungalows, cocktail service and DJ-spun music.Speaking of nightlife, there are virtually a million places to drink, dance and party. MGM Grand's Lobby Bar and center bar, called Centrifuge, are great spots for meeting up with friends and family. Tap Sports Bar has more than 48 draft beers and a large selection of handcrafted bottled beers -- plus, you can eat American food favorites for lunch and dinner, peruse sports memorabilia and watch games on 60-inch HD TVs. And Hakkasan Las Vegas, an 80,000 square-foot club with a Cantonese-themed restaurant boasts spectacular indoor and outdoor views of the Strip, a huge dance floor with a suspended performance area, the Ling Ling Lounge, the Ling Ling Club and other unique nightlife experiences.Among MGM Grand's other offerings are a comprehensive casino floor, the Grand Spa (try The Dreaming Ritual, its two-hour signature treatment that includes Australian Aboriginal massage techniques and other forms of all-over pampering), Cristophe Salon and a huge fitness center.If you love the TV show "CSI," don't miss CSI: The Experience. It lets you jump into the role of a crime scene investigator and piece together evidence in order to solve one of three mysteries. Plus, MGM Grand houses the research center CBS Television City, where you can be among the first to give feedback about TV pilots, video games and consumer products.Those in the mood to shop can browse through the stores along The District in the main thoroughfare, explore The Underground on the lower level of the main lobby or check out a variety of souvenir outlets located throughout the premises.The race and sports book at MGM Grand is the place to catch your favorite sporting event. Brimming with energy and excitement, it features 17 betting counters, comfortable seating, a bar and the adjacent Stage Deli. Video walls and high-tech media are spread throughout the room and exclusive "skyboxes" add to the experience. Also visit the high-end gaming lounge called Whiskey Down. In addition to blackjack and video poker, it has a 64-seat bar serving a fine collection of brown spirits (American, Canadian, Irish and Scotch whiskies).Accommodations at MGM Grand are as varied as the rest of the property's offerings, ranging in size and price. As mentioned above, the resort recently completed a $160 million remodeling project that included 3,570 guest rooms and 642 suites in the hotel’s main tower. The redesign utilized a warm color palette with contemporary furnishings. It will also incorporated environmentally responsible elements such as LED lighting, improved thermostats, solar shades, upgraded faucets and showers, and bath amenities that are 100 percent biodegradable. Plus, there is now a "Stay Well" collection of 42 rooms, which are loaded with amenities designed to promote better health and combat jet lag.MGM Grand is weaving a modern vision while respecting its entertainment roots. It continues to elevate itself as a tour de force of hospitality, ambiance and design in Las Vegas. And visitors of all walks of life are toasting the resort's latest accomplishments while eagerly anticipating all the new entertainment, dining and nightlife experiences yet to come.-- By Renée LiButti

Great place to stay.
PostedSeptember 7, 2013
Great Hotel and Casino to stay at. Wonderful service from the staff, even security when we had problems with the people staying in the next room. My husband who requires at least two cups of coffee in the morning before starting his day was very upset that there's no coffee makers in the rooms and he had to pay at least $4.00 every time he wanted coffee. Other than that our stay was great. The hotel itself has lots of restaurants and shops to eat at and shop from.

Shining in the spotlight of the Las Vegas Strip, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino boasts gourmet restaurants, world-class shopping and dazzling entertainment that has hotel-casino patrons cheering for an encore.Like the plot of a motion picture, this classic Las Vegas casino -- where Elvis and Priscilla Presley were married -- once rose from the dead: It was imploded in 1998 and then rebuilt from the ground up. As for its most recent dazzling special effect, the Aladdin lifted the curtain to Hollywood in Sin City when it was reborn as Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Since Planet Hollywood's arrival, the property has made a metamorphosis from its lackluster Arabian-theme into a high-tech, retro-chic attraction unlike any other Strip property.Though infused with a taste of Hollywood culture, the vibe at Planet Hollywood is intended to be welcoming and unpretentious. Who knows, you might even find yourself sitting down to play blackjack next to Jack Black.The hotel's movie theme is played out in the rooms through film memorabilia displayed in custom-designed cabinetry. The glamorous 12,800-square-foot lobby at Planet Hollywood has eight chandeliers, each comprised of 66,000 individually hand-strung crystals. Black granite floors, textured glass walls and large columns beckon guests to the check-in desk, where bands of LED lights continuously change color.The 100,000-square-foot casino appears to be in constant motion with glowing rectangular light fixtures, which change colors from red to blue to green to purple. Tall pillars with either geometric patterns or stripes reach from the floor to the ceiling, and neon LED lights brighten the walls. More than 250 flat screen televisions can be found topping slot machines, while 87 table games await those ready to try their luck. Additional gaming options, include a race and sports book and a poker room.For a bite to eat, head to the Spice Market Buffet or choose from the large menu at the 24-hour coffee shop Planet Dailies. Upstairs on the mezzanine level, Strip House redefines the traditional steakhouse with an innovative menu in a sexy, vintage atmosphere, while Koi, a well-recognized L.A. restaurant and lounge, combines the exotic Far Eastern aura with the energy and style of Hollywood. On the casino level, the first Las Vegas outpost of Earl of Sandwich makes sandwich eating a gourmet treat and the festive cantina Yolos provides a modern tribute to Mexican culture. And Gordon Ramsay BurGR takes the traditional burger to a new level.Planet Hollywood's Strip entrances are eye-catching and easy to access. They are clearly marked with escalators or stairs leading people off the Strip and into the property. Music plays at the doorways while color-changing orbs decorate the front of the hotel. There is also a clear entrance to the attached Miracle Mile Shops, which is owned separately from the hotel. The mammoth mall has more than 140 stores and dozen restaurants -- like Urban Outfitters, Build-A-Bear Workshop, GAP Body, BCBG Max Azaria and bebe -- incorporating something for every discerning taste. There are also several restaurants including the Meatball Spot, which offers an array of gourmet meatballs, authentic flatbreads, gourmet sandwiches and a salad bar with 36 different toppings.As expected in Hollywood, Planet Hollywood is packed with high-caliber entertainment. "Sin City Comedy & Burlesque," a combination of world-class stand-up with sinfully sexy burlesque, and "Purple Reign, THE Prince Tribute Show" (closing May 18, 2014) is in the Sin City Theatre on the Mezz level. "RockTellz & CockTails," which is featuring a series of legacy artists (such as Meat Loaf and The Jacksons) who perform as well as share stories from their careers, runs in the PH Showroom. Planet Hollywood is also home to pop icon Britney Spears, who is starring in "Britney: Piece of Me." Staged in The Axis, a state-of-the-art theater, this is one of the largest indoor immersive productions in the world.Center stage in the casino of Planet Hollywood is a circular hot spot called the Heart Bar, a place to hang out with the beautiful people while sipping on drinks served by cocktail waitresses in black leather go-go attire. Guests can grab their 15 minutes of fame at the Extra Lounge, the new Las Vegas headquarters for the correspondents and crew of television's "Extra." Located near the hotel's front entrance, this 24-hour bar is the perfect spot to see who's coming and going.For a tranquil retreat from the flurry of shoppers, concert goers and gamblers, the Planet Hollywood Spa by Mandara offers relaxing body therapies from around the world, as well as saunas and steam rooms. With such superior treatment, you will truly feel like a movie star.--Staff Report
