Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Review -  View

Room With A View

VegasTripping: So... how was the check in process?

justJoey: Smooth. No line at all and 3 or so reception folks waiting for guests.

VegasTripping: Did you bribe for an upgrade?

justJoey: Yep, $20.

VegasTripping: And...

justJoey: I just was going for a relatively high floor room with a strip view and got it.

VegasTripping: Yeah. That's a great view.

justJoey: My view was of the City Center construction (left). I only paid $45 on Priceline.com so I didn't want to get too greedy.

VegasTripping: I've had friends get stuck with the Westin Casaurina on Priceline, they lump that property in with "strip hotels."

justJoey: You can weed out the properties on Priceline by entering certain criteria. I use a rogue website called biddingfortravel.com. It is a message board where people post their winning and losing Priceline bids, broken down by city.

Joey also mentioned another Priceline community website called betterbidding.com which is similar. He claims that using these websites to gather room rate information before booking a trip has saved him thousands of dollars in hotel costs over the past four years. Wow.

Thanks for the pix and review Joey. Did the $45 include taxes and service charges??

I was at PH last week and i spent about 100 more for my rooms but the room that I was in looked that same as it did when i was there last year. The view was simliar since I was closer to the Paris but I did have a nice view of the Strip. They do give you a lot of magazines to read while you are there including the lame OK!. I didnt use the internet service while I was there but at one point there were computers in the room and not just the terminals. I did use the tub and it is very comfortable. As far as the rest of the bathrooms are concerned the water pressure on the north side of the building is weak so you hear the sink rumbling from time to time. as far as the timeshare folks go if you dont make eye contact then they seem to let you pass by. The 5.00 water is a joke since you can load up with 1.00 water at the Hawaiian Marketplace and keep your ice bucket full. The bed is one of the most comfortable beds you can lie in. As far as room service goes there are a lot of dining options but my neighbors ordered food and the staff wasnt too quick to remove the trays from the hallway.

Donny, here is the receipt from Priceline and there were no additional charges from Planet Ho upon check out.

Your Offer Price Per Room, Per Night: $45.00
Subtotal: $90.00
Taxes & Service Fees: $16.94
Total Charges*: $106.94

It's funny about the pic of the shower with the mold in it. I never noticed it and all and wonder if its a different color grout or something. The room from what I remember was spotless. Everything except the exterior windows which were a little spotty.

I'd stay at Planet Ho for under $100 a night any time. If you like the younger vibe thing that many Vegas places have been going for, PH has done a great job IMO.

The spa needs an overhaul though that's for sure, in relation to other Vegas spas they need new management and should send their people to the other spas around town to take notes. Caesars spa is incredible BTW.

Next year I'm hoping to pay up a little and stay at Encore though if I can get it for under $160 a night.
