Kiss And Condotelling at the P-Tow

Ph Towers Exterior

Here's a special treat. VT reader (and self-admitted three-year-lurker) head58 spent a coupla nights at the PH Towers condotel thingy attached to Planet Hollywood and brought back this incredibly thorough review. Thank you Mr. Head for sharing your PH Towers stay with us!

Ph Towers Westgate

Like City Center's Vdara, PH Towers Westgate opened in December 2009 and features a very modern glass and steel style. You also have to walk 5 minutes through a mall to get to the hotel, but unlike Crystals, the Miracle Mile doesn't actively sneer at your tax bracket.

PH Towers (the plural is intentional as they originally intended to build two towers, and the model in the lobby still shows a pair of towers, but it's all filthy lies as honestly there's nowhere in the footprint of the property to even think about another) is an all-suite property that lacks a casino of its own, although it is connected very closely to the Planet Hollywood casino. Your greatest exposure to PH Towers has probably been from high pressure timeshare salesgrubs trying to get you to buy in. The market being what it is, most of the rooms are available for us touristy. The hotel is at the southeast corner of the Miracle Mile shops and can be accessed either through the mall or by a short walk up Harmon. The Planet Hollywood parking garage, incredibly inconvenient to the actual PH hotel, is connected directly to the PH Towers lobby.

Thanks for the review... I've always been curious about the PH tower and I think this settles my curiousity. MUCH better than I expected, though. Too bad the tower couldnt be in a better location.

It must be Captain Picard Day!

Great review. Would be perfect hotel except the parking blows, no Verizon cell service at least on 52nd floor, pay wifi and the washer/dryer smelled like a moldy trout's asshole.

Very nice review, thanks for sharing.

Sweet review!

That couch is perfect for an orgy.

What was that about the mini washer and dryer under the bathroom vanity? I'm intrigued. Stellar review...I've wandered thru the lobby of this place and wondered what the upstairs looked like.

Thanks, everybody.

W/r/t the washer dryer, we used it for bathing suits and a couple of shirts. It is small but plenty of room for that sort of thing. A box of detergent was provided (didn't check to see if it was replenished after we used it). No funky smell in it at all. It was hell of confusing to operate though and we ended up just mashing buttons to get it to open the door when it was done.

Westgate still owns the property, so it is not under the Caesars (Total Rewards) umbrella. I believe they have designated certain floors for use by the timeshares they sold. The walk to the casino is no more than 100yards through the mall. It has larger rooms and is an easier walk to the strip than Vdara or Signature. There is no restaurant and the lobby bar has very limited hours and selection. The 1 and 2 bdrm units are usually available at a decent price.

Great review, and generally agreed! My SO and I stayed here with another couple over Thanksgiving last year, and I was hesitant based on online reviews, but figured the bang for the buck made it at least worth a shot. Was pleasantly surprised - plenty of room for each couple to feel like we had our own space, but a good community area as well. (That window shade/screen for projector tv is FAB for football season). Split between the four of us, this was by FAR our best option for such a high-capacity holiday weekend. Next time I'm on a group trip to Vegas, this will be the first property I check for availability.

Thanks for the write-up. Haven't read too much about this place.
We've got a one bedroom reserved for four nights this January, to try this place out. Don't mind a little walking, and I do like a nice room - yes, I'm one of those that actually uses a room for more than SSS. Now, I'm really looking forward to this.

Oontzfest, hillarious. Nice review thanks for taking the time, was curious about this place.

A very well put together review. Thanks so much! I've always been curious about the PH Towers, and now I have much more info than I thought.
