I Scored a $45 P-Ho (On Priceline) : JustJoey's Planet Hollywood Experience
Tag Along With JustJoey as He Does The Planet Hollywood and Teaches Us The Ins and Outs of Booking By Priceline
If you've spent any time whatsoever on any Las Vegas related message board, blog or website, you probably know justJoey from his always funny and thoughtful posts about all sorts of Vegas stuff. You probably also may know that _justJoey operates his own blog - VegasLinks - which is a great daily starting point for Vegas freaks looking to surf waves of information they've probably never seen before. Joey is a bonafide Vegas nut, and being one of those nuts who understands that we all make better Vegas decisions when we share our experiences and tips, he has graciously and generously shared a slew of photos from his recent stay in the recently refurbished rooms at Planet Hollywood and some inside information on how to find great rates on the internet.
After spending some time chatting with Joey about his stay at the Planet Hollywood (excerpts of which accompany the photos below) I've come to realize that not only his he one of the most passionate Vegas freaks out there, but he is an expert at digging out the best room rates possible using travel auction sites, most notably Priceline.com . Joey scored this Planet Hollywood room for an unbelievable rate of $45/night. All of the comments related to the room must be tempered with the knowledge that this is an unreal value for the price, despite a few of the short comings in the room.
Along with my commentary and the photos, I've added some excerpts from a conversation I had with Joey via Instant Messenger about his experiences staying at Planet Hollywood.
