Aladdin Planet Hollywood Transformation to Be Completed by October

For what seems like an eternity, the transformation of the cursed Aladdin Hotel & Casino into the gleaming and shiny (and still-cursed) Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino will apparently be completed in October 2007. We've heard this all before, so don't start booking your rooms quite yet. We continue to suggest that all VT readers take a pause on staying at Aladdin until the dust has settled.

It does look, however, that the end may actually be in sight. The Review-Journal conducted an interview with A/PH honcho Robert Earl, wherein he says that progress has been slow, but they've invested must more money into the property than originally anticipated. The description of the strip frontage is semi-interesting.

The large desert-stonelike features topped by an Arabian-style dome are being pulled down to be replaced by a "Times Squarelike" front with large light-emitting diode screens and bright colors to make the property more inviting.

"By the middle of this year, you'll never know the Aladdin existed," said Earl, adding that the dome that sat above the Aladdin sign was removed Thursday.

"That 700-foot run all along the front will all glow and change colors and show images," Earl said of the new plaza. "It will be a fantastic billboard."

A new front entrance on the Strip property's northern end has already opened while construction on the front continues. Retail tenants and restaurants are being added along Las Vegas Boulevard.

Just hope this is not a big mess in June. We got a great room rate for 9 nights We gamble there a lot. Our last trip to Vegas was in Dec and it was torn up but I didn't find it really bad. We usually stay at the Flamingo and it is really getting bad.
