Expert review of PH Towers
PH Towers opened December 2009 (at the same time as CityCenter), with the idea of it being to Planet Hollywood what the Signature is to MGM Grand: an all-suite, non-gaming property designed for people who care more about their room than a Vegas vibe. And although I’m a huge fan of the Vegas vibe, it’s nice to have somewhere like this that’s connected to the main casino, but, at the same time, removed.
On Harmon Avenue, tacked onto the east side of Planet Hollywood – it’s actually on the edge of PH’s Miracle Mile shops. So you’re bang in the middle of the action.
All suites, and you can choose between a studio or a one- or two-bedroom suite with a king bed, drop down projector TV screen and full kitchen. Decor is swish with padded headboards, scarlet leather chaise longues and even patterned pillowcases, while the bathrooms have swish black fittings. Be warned, though, that the studio suites are small – more like large bedrooms with a sofa and a kitchenette within it. Also, like the Polo Towers, it’s a time-share resort, but I’ve had friends stay there and they’ve never been subjected to the spiel.
A word on the prices - they're pretty high. So although all rooms are of a high standard, it's not the best value property.
There aren’t so many in the hotel itself, but to get to the casino at Planet Hollywood (which, incidentally, is one of my favourites in Vegas) you need to walk through the Miracle Mile shops. Again, as a venue, I love Miracle Mile – it’s sassy and bright, with a good range of shops and theatre shows – but trudging through the lot of them on your way to the casino is tiring.
There’s a bar in the lobby (which overlooks the pool) but for food you’ll have to venture into Planet Hollywood itself. Strip House and Koi are good, if expensive, and the Spice Market Buffet is the best on the Strip.
The pool is on the ground floor by the lobby, and it’s nice -although I’m not keen on the fact that you can see into it from the shopping mall at Miracle Mile. In a shock move for Vegas, the gym is free.
It’s fine if slightly impersonal – but you are staying in a condo building, after all.
Mostly couples: time-share owners, and people who love Planet Hollywood but want an updated room.
There's a daily US$5 resort fee.
