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.

Awesome stay
PostedJuly 15, 2013
My husband and I stayed at a different hotel on the strip last year, but wanted to try Planet Hollywood this time. It was a great decision, and I am sure we'll come back to PH.
The room was a bit worn in some places (tv stand and closets dinged up and a small area of peeling wallpaper in the bathroom) but still nice overall--the bathroom with its soaking tub can't be beat! The bed was comfortable, the room was quiet, and the air conditioning worked well. There was also plenty of hot water, which can be a problem in hotel rooms. We got a fountain view room, and the view was perfect.
The casino has a fun upbeat vibe, the restaurants are nice but fairly reasonably priced for the strip, and having the Miracle Mile Shops right in the hotel is awesome. Check in and out were quick and trouble free, with no surprises. I loved Planet Hollywood!

Get ready to feel the heat. And we don't mean from the sun. There's a lot of hot stuff going on at The Mirage.The resort's iconic attraction (and really one of the more popular attractions on the Las Vegas Strip) is a volcano. It sits right in front of the property in a tranquil lagoon...at least this lagoon is tranquil until the volcano erupts, which happens several times a night. Steam rises. Water shoots up. Lava spews. And flames dance. Seriously, they do. Choreographed to a soundtrack created by Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart and tabla player Zakir Hussain, these little fireballs have some smokin' moves.The volcano isn't the only attraction at The Mirage. Everyone who enters usually stops to snap a photo in the tropical atrium. Under a towering dome just inside the resort's front doors, it's teeming with exotic flowers. And then over behind the front desk, you'll become engrossed with a huge aquarium that houses more than 450 fish.Speaking of where the wild things are, you can't leave the resort without visiting Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. Built for education and preservation, these two habitats offer you the rare chance to view leopards, white tigers and white lions (say hello to the adorable white lion cubs -- Madiba, Timba-Masai and Freedom for us when you go) as well as bottlenose dolphins. Bet you didn't think you'd see all those animals in Vegas?And then there's the entertainment at The Mirage. The Beatles "LOVE" by Cirque du Soleil, Terry Fator, Boyz II Men: each one is a truly remarkable show. So what should you do about them? See all three!"LOVE" takes place in a circular, custom-built theater. Not only will the music wow you (it comes from The Beatles' original recordings), but the imaginative props and costumes will transport you to another time. Fator, a singing ventriloquist, and his collection of puppets (characters like Winston the Impersonating Turtle and country singer Walter T. Airdale) will have you in stitches. And ladies will swoon in the aisles at the "Mowtownphilly" melodies of Boyz II Men -- those smooth-as-silk singers!Plus, thanks to the ongoing Aces of Comedy series, comedians like Jay Leno, Ray Romano, Tim Allen, Kathy Griffin and Daniel Tosh swing by the resort on select weekends to crack audiences up with their antics.Dining at The Mirage is another pleasure. In just a short walk, you'll pass by Stack Restaurant & Bar by chef Brian Massie; Japonais, where East meets West in a wonderful way; and Portofino, which features Italian classics with a modern twist. At Tom Colicchio's Heritage Steak, all kinds of meats are prepared over open flames in either wood-burning ovens or on charcoal grills. Go ahead...try and choose...all of these restaurants are delicious!More eateries are tucked into other corners of The Mirage. Open to the casino, the smells coming from Samba, a Brazilian steakhouse that serves rodizio-style meals, will make your mouth water. The Chinese restaurant Fin showcases live seafood -- steamed, baked or wok-fried. For a sandwich stuffed beyond belief, head to the Carnegie Deli. Burgers of all invention along with five varieties of fries are prepared at BLT Burger. And then there's the resort's buffet, Cravings, where you'll feel like you're strolling down a street crammed with international cuisine.Actually, if you want to spend time on a famous street, check out Rhumbar. This cool lounge has an outdoor patio where you'll have a fabulous view of the Strip. Kick back here with either a refreshing mojito or a cigar and just take it everything in.Looking for a place to party? Then go to 1 OAK Las Vegas, a nightclub imported from New York City. Divided into two separate rooms with their own bars and music formats, you never know who you might see. Maybe hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis? Or one of the Kardashians? The list of celebrities who have passed through 1 OAK's doors is endless.When The Mirage opened in 1989, it was one of the first true megaresorts on the Las Vegas Strip. A hottie of a property way back then, today it continues to fan those flames.

Beautiful hotel with friendly service.
PostedJuly 16, 2012
We had never been to Las Vegas before, and the Mirage was perfect for our first time. We went through most of the other strip hotels and never wished we'd chosen something else. The Mirage is beautiful with a friendly and helpful staff. The only negatives were that the resort fee is high, the wireless Internet is so slow as to make it basically useless, and I really thought the admission to Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden should've been significantly discounted for Mirage guests and it wasn't. But overall a good experience.

in room safes

We would like our room to have a safe?
There was one in our PH room, but I didn't use it, so I'm not sure if there is a charge to use it.
