Don't blink, you might miss something. Actually, you might miss a lot. That's what audiences at V - The Ultimate Variety show will want to remember. This fast-paced, high-energy show features an exciting lineup of specialty acts from around the world. During the 75-minute revue you'll see about seven different acts take the stage.New performers are constantly being added to the show's roster, so you never know exactly who you're going to see that night. Some of the recurring acts include: master juggler Wally Eastwood; the Skating Aratas; The Crazy Gauchos from Argentina Eduardo Lomé and Hugo Latorre; Ukrainian rhythmic gymnast Tamara Yeroffyeva; Melinda - First Lady of Magic; and comedian Russ Merlin.The show's variety format stems from the days when shows used to feature a specialty act to supplement the main production. In some instances, those specialty acts became the stars of the show. At V - The Ultimate Variety Show, all of those stars get a chance to shine in one amazing revue. The varied lineup makes this show a great option if you're traveling with a group and looking for a show that has a little something for everyone.Eastwood is both the host and a performer in the show. His infectious energy sets the pace for the whirlwind of talent about to take the stage. Eastwood has been described as having "the fastest hands on Earth," and it's easy to see why. He performs several different routines throughout the show, including juggling ping pong balls with his mouth and playing Beethoven's "Für Elise" by bouncing rubber balls on an electronic keyboard. Not only does he amaze, but Eastwood makes people laugh. His happy-go-lucky attitude paired with his self-deprecating humor is a winning combination.The Skating Aratas kick things into high gear with their daring acrobatic skating act. Performed by husband and wife Victor and Jenny Arata, their act is done on a small platform on an area of the stage that extends into the crowd. Victor propels the duo in a high-speed spin while lifting and spinning Jenny in the air in a series of awe-inspiring poses. The limited performance space, paired with their risky routine is nothing short of amazing.Dressed in traditional garb, The Crazy Gauchos perform an exhilarating drum routine. They stomp their feet in perfect time to the upbeat rhythm resounding from their drums. They enliven the audience with their wild sense of humor.The mood changes from uproarious laughter to awe as Yeroffyeva, a former Olympic gymnast, enters. Tall and lean, her graceful movements enchant the audience as she demonstrates spinning a hula hoop on her legs or arms while contorting into various different postures. Her flexibility is mind-boggling.After a more than 10-year hiatus from the stage, Melinda - The First Lady of Magic is back in Vegas amazing audiences. A mother of two, Melinda makes it hard to believe she's ever stopped performing. She was the only female magician to have her own headlining magic show on the Strip in the ’90s. As part of the cast at V, Melinda does three main illusions with the help of her female assistants/dancers.Merlin performs a comedy act with four volunteers from the audience. Each volunteer is given an outrageous mask to wear and assigned a different gesture to make when Merlin taps them on the shoulder. It's not long before the entire audience is laughing at the hilarious scene he creates on stage.If you are looking for a night of big laughs paired with an assortment of awe-inspiring entertainment, V -The Ultimate Variety Show has it all.

Who says you have to be a celebrity to be treated like one? Well, in real life, to experience that celebrated lifestyle of the rich and the famous you usually do actually have to be rich and famous. However, Las Vegas is certainly not real life and at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, it doesn’t matter if you’re the star of a box office hit or a no-name chorus member in a Broadway wannabe flop, you will be treated as an A-lister.Shining in the spotlight of the Las Vegas Strip, Planet Hollywood boasts gourmet restaurants, world-class shopping and headline-generating entertainment giving hotel guests a famous experience with everything but a mob of paparazzi.Rebuilt from the ground up in 1998, the former Aladdin now Planet Hollywood has evolved with the times. Once so chic that Elvis and Priscilla Presley got hitched in the hotel, and still hot enough today for celebrities to make regular appearances just for the sake of hanging out.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 or Poker with Lady Gaga… OK, that was a terrible “Poker Face” joke.Adorned with film memorabilia showcased in custom-designed cabinetry, every element of the hotel takes on a star-studded theme. The 12,800-square-foot lobby at Planet Hollywood has eight chandeliers -- each composed of 66,000 individually hand-strung crystals -- black granite floors, textured glass walls, and large columns that all beckon guests to the check-in desk, where bands of LED lights continuously change color. Since gaming is usually more fun than checking in, an escalator from the lobby (which is below street level) whisks guests up into the 100,000-square-foot casino that is seemingly in constant motion with glowing rectangular light fixtures that dance through a series of party-starting colors. Here you will find a sea of slot machines, 87 game tables, an expansive race and sports book, and a secluded poker room are ready for you to stop by and try your luck.If all of the gaming strikes up an appetite, take your winnings and grab a bite to eat at one of Planet Hollywood’s many restaurants. For those with a big appetite, 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. Celebrate L.A. street food with a stop at Pink's Hot Dogs. Their location here is the only spot outside of Hollywood where you can enjoy their famous hot dogs. On the casino level, Earl of Sandwich makes sandwich eating a gourmet treat and the festive cantina Yolos provides a modern tribute to Mexican culture. And not to forget, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has created Gordon Ramsay BurGR – a burger joint that takes the traditional burger to a new level... a Vegas level!Planet Hollywood's Strip entrances are eye-catching with escalators and stairs leading people off the Strip and into the property and there is also a clear entrance to the attached Miracle Mile Shops, which is owned separately from the hotel. Home to more than 170 stores and 15 restaurants shoppers are sure to find something for every discerning taste. However, for those looking to stay on the Planet Hollywood property, there are a lot of other entertainment opportunities within the resort.As expected in Hollywood, Planet Hollywood is packed with mega entertainment including 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. Additionally the hilarious ventriloquist Jeff Dunham and his troupe of witty sidekicks are headlining Dunham’s latest show, “Not Playing with a Full Deck” in the PH Showroom.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 for your therapeutic pleasure. And for a little sun therapy, the seasonal Pleasure Pool is the place to be. With celebrity-quality treatments and superior services, the spa will truly leave you feeling like a movie star.

Where do you check in at. I am driving to Vegas in two weeks need a map or direction when i get to the hotel as to where you check in at.

From the strip turn on Harmon. The first light after you turn on Harmon is Plant Hollywood Drive. This takes you Valet Parking, Reg Parking and the check in. Easy to find.
