Casino

Planet Hollywood has hip and modern architecture fitted to its Hollywood theme. It features a three-acre casino floor full of traditional gambling machines like slots, table games and The Playing Field Race and Sports Book. This features 33 plasma screens, two jumbo screens and a section for VIP. Planet Hollywood is the first Las Vegas resort to offer table games dealt by young ladies in “chic lingerie”.

“The Mezzanine”

This can be accessed by taking an escalator in the casino or the elevator. Here, guests can relax on comfy chairs overlooking the casino. Many come to smoke, relax or think. The area is rather spaced out with room to walk and includes a place for shooting basketball hoops. It includes a “Living Room” with sofas to be accessed by the guests.

The Planet Hollywood showroom is also located on the mezzanine. It features several different live shows; as of 2010, the most popular and longest-running is titled Peepshow starring Holly Madison. A live version of the television series America’s Got Talent hosted by Jerry Springer (who flies to Vegas weekly from his self-titled show’s taping in Stamford, Connecticut) and Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding played on the Mezzanine in 2009.

“The Spa by Mandara” is located on this floor. Two fine dining restaurants, KOI and Strip House are present here, across from the wedding chapel.

Accommodations

Planet Hollywood Resort features rooms that meet its Hollywood theme. The resort has 52 floors (with the final two being VIP) and each room is dedicated to a certain movie such as Backdraft. Rooms feature actual props and memorabilia from the film. The rooms range from standard to luxurious “Panorama” suites with a view of the whole Las Vegas Strip.

Pool

The swimming pool in this resort can be accessed through the sixth floor. The area overlooks the Strip with a view of the north and south. It features two pools and two hot spa one of each in both the South and North Strip. The one in the North Strip section features VIP cabanas for renting. In between is a bar/grill/snack-bar with a patch of grass lined with pool chairs for guests to sit and eat.

The PH Towers

In late December 2009 Westgate opened the PH Towers, a timeshare and hotel linked with the casino and main hotel.

The PH Towers is a residential tower and boutique hotel located next to Planet Hollywood by Westgate Resorts. The 56-story building contains 1201 suites ranging in size from 400-to-950 sq ft (37-to-88 m2)
