"This is not just a resort and casino, it is an amalgamation of three entities," he said, alluding to the Planet Hollywood, Miracle Mile and Westgate Resorts franchises.
Indeed, after a $1 billion renovation, the former Aladdin site is positioning itself as strong competition for the clientele of such stylish and hip neighboring properties as Wynn and The Palms. Not only will there be floor-to-ceiling Swarovski crystal chandeliers in the lobby and 5,000 Panasonic high-definition plasma TVs in public areas and guest rooms, but celeb-frequented hotspots like the restaurant Koi and Privé nightclub also are headed to the 2,600-room property.
Vision for the Rooms
Guest rooms will be museums of celebrity culture, much like
the Planet Hollywood eateries that inspired the hotel. Rooms and suites will be
themed after movies and showcase original
The Starwood-managed property also will feature the 50-story
Entertainment options include a show from magician Hans Klok—which for its first three months will feature Baywatch beauty Carmen Electra—and a condensed version of the Broadway hit Stomp.
Two critical components of living like a celebrity include
spa treatments and shopping. The Planet Hollywood Spa by Mandara will offer
specialty massages, facials and body treatments; retailers like Urban Outfitters
and H&M, the first of the Swedish chain to hit
The hotel will remain open throughout the full renovation, with one floor closing at a time.
