In addition to my stay at Palazzo, I took a night to explore Planet Hollywood. I love the casino, but haven’t stayed there in a few years. I had similar offers to stay at each casino but after your votes I decided to make my home at Palazzo.
My stay at Planet Hollywood was a tale of two rooms. Check in was packed. It’s a small area, but there seemed to be hundreds of people. Luckily for me there was a fast quiet room for diamond total rewards members to check in.
In minutes I received my keys to my first room. I’m going to guess I had a basic “Hollywood Hip” room, but I’m not sure so I’ll just call it “Room 1.”
Room one wasn’t cleaned from the previous guests and the TV didn’t work. Additionally, the room was one of the smallest I’ve seen in Vegas. I can’t imagine how two queen beds could fit in this space and I don’t know that I want to find out. Of course, I love the casino so I’ll fight with myself about this in the future.
My trusty iPhone charger was the only item that made the trip down the strip with me. I figured that I’d wake up and head right over to Palazzo whenever I woke up the next day.
Unfortunately, the way the room was laid out there was no obvious place to set my phone for a charge outside of the bathroom. The work space was a little tight and just about up against the bed. It’s not easy to see, but there’s a half finished iced coffee by the lamp.
One nice feature is that each room had a newspaper delivered each morning. The night/morning I stayed at Planet Hollywood I ran into delivery.
The bed itself looked nice. The bed had cream coverings with dark trim. I didn’t bother trying out the mattress or coverings, but at least it looked good.
I was standing next to an awkwardly placed chair when I took the picture above. This was pretty much the only place there was room for a sitting area in the room. This was the only place someone could sit and watch TV if the TV worked. The TV didn’t work. Leftover item #2, a Mountain Dew bottle, is to the left of the TV.
Looking the other direction from the chair was the view outside. The room had a nice view of the pool. The pool area isn’t very big, but it looks nice.

Heading back to the room I go into the bathroom where I found a Target bag that may or may not have had stuff in it. I didn’t care to look and this was the last straw for me before I headed down to get a new room. The left side of the room had a nice sized marble vanity and sink. Straight ahead was a tub, which was about the width of the bathroom.
The bathroom was a nice size, but maybe could have been made a little smaller to make the main living space a little larger. It also had the only easy to reach outlet to charge a phone. The right side of the room had a water closet and shower.
On the way out of the room you can see that the room colors (along with my iphone) make it feel a little dark.
This first room was just not cool with me. The small size didn’t matter as I was only there for one night, but I think this type of room would be tight for double beds. The leftover items and broken TV were unacceptable and I moved on to another room.
I went back down to ask for another room and was happily given another, larger, room. I received a few apologies for the situation. Everything was handled as nice as can be by the Planet Hollywood staff. I was thankful for the switch being made quickly and painlessly.
Now it’s on to the next room, which I believe was a “Resort Room.”
