Make the most of this magical place cos very shortly its going to turn into Planet Hollywoods Towers. Work is already underway but it hasnt damaged the feelgood atmosphere of the Aladdin. I like this hotel with its 2 giant horses galloping thru the wall over the casino and it also boasts one of the biggest shopping areas in vegas..the Desert Passage..with 140 outlets and a mile and a half long. You can even take a rickshaw bike ride round the shops, if the old feet are complaining. I like the arabian port area where ,if you're lucky, you might get drenched in the thunderstorm. This really is a themed hotel with huge rooms and some pretty good restaurants and is renowned for being the wedding venue(in the chapel) of Elvis and Priscilla in 1967.
Unique Quality: Its unique qualities?....I hit the jackpot there on the slots under the banner of Enchanted Fortunes! ...say no more!
UPDATE: Alas no more! The Aladdin no longer exists and in its place is the very upmarket Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino. Theyve kept the mile long shopping mall tho!
Directions: Opposite the Bellagio
We have a pleasant stay at the hotel despite the construction in turning the hotel to Planet Hollywood by end of the year. The room is clean and the bathroom is very spacious :) However, the unit that we stayed only came with a shower area.... and I overhead a lady asking for a room with bathtub while checking in... so I guess, if you want a room with a tub, you have to ask for it :P
Unique Quality: There is spa, pool, many restaurants and shopping on site!
Stayed last year 2005 July. The Alladin is so nice. I hope it stays as nice as it was last year. I was told it was going to change over to a Hollywood theme, since the Middle East environment/scenery is considered politically incorrect due to 9/11 and all the terrorist activity in the past few years. So the owners decided to be "politically correct Americans" and change the theme of the hotel. Dumb. The table dealers, such a the craps table dealers were awesome. I am a beginner in craps and they were so patient/kind/funny. I had a blast losing my money. The amenities at the Alladin was awesome for the price paid. The best time to stay in the dead of the hot summer. That's for any hotel in Vegas. Pool is nice but overly crowded for their size. The room service was awesome too. Food good but slightly expensive.
Unique Quality: Table dealers at the craps tables were welcoming even if you only know the basics. The room was immaculate. So the housekeeping was on par. The rest of the personnel were friendly and helpful. Careful at the Elemnis Spa, they will sell you overly price unnecessary cosmetics and beauty products you will never probaly use when you get home.
Directions: On the Strip across from Paris
Unique Quality: Aladdin Hotel and Casino
Aladdin is a 1001-Arabian Nights themed hotel and casino. The original Aladdin was imploded in 1998 and the new one was reopened in 2000. The hotel has 2,567 rooms and the casino is 100,000 square feet.
In addition to the hotel and casino the Aladdin has The Desert Passage Shopping Mall. It has over 140 retail stores and freatures the free computer generated thuderstrom.
The Aladdin is located on the east side of the strip, towards the south end, between Flamingo Avenue and Tropicana Avenue.
FREE LOUNGE (as in no cover & no drink minimum)
Features R&B, Top 40 and classic rock bands.
Directions: South Strip
I would be careful booking here anytime over the next year. The property has been purchased by Planet Hollywood and is undergoing an extensive renovation. The rooms were adequate, but the condition of the common areas was unacceptable. The construction was going all day and into the night, and rendered the casino unusable. Front desk and valet were particularly understaffed and unconcerned.
Great location, in the middle of the strip. Restaurants are fine, rooms were good with plenty of space. Clean and tidy. The price is also good and represents great value considering its location and facilities.
I did not stay here but played at some of the tables and drank at some of the bars, and took in a show as well. A very nice place, and affordable as well from what the reservation desk told me... some rooms on weekdays were under 100. The Desert Passage area had very nice shopping and dining as well.
-UPDATE- ALADDIN WAS RENAMED PLANET HOLLYWOOD IN SUMMER/FALL 2007. A NEARLY FULL RENOVATION OF THE EXTERIOR AND ALL OF THE COMMON AREAS TOOK PLACE BEFORE THE RE-OPENING. PLEASE SEE PLANET HOLLYWOOD ON HOTELS TIPS.
a nice hotel/casino with very nice rooms.
No coffee maker though.
No jackpots given away during our 1 week stay.
More than half of the casino was deserted at any given time.
Many dealers were just standing at empty tables.
Waitresses were infrequent.
Restaurants were very expensive.
I don't reccommend eating there.
Go downtown to old Vegas and you will find choice food for a decent price.
Remember that the holtels on the strip aren't paid for as of yet and they can't afford to give too much away. The casinos and hotels in Old Vegas are paid for and thats where yo get the best deals and odds.
Unique Quality: Great views of the Water show at the Bellagio
The pool was nice and elevated from away from the sunbathers
Directions: Next to Paris hotel and Casino
Throughout my visits to Las Vegas which are many and often I always look for a good deal, My most recent visit to the City Of Sin I found myself checked into an oasis of sorts. This hotel is very nice. It's not as well known as many of the others although its location is in directly across from Bellagio, which is practically the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. The fantastic location allows you to go practically anywhere by foot or cab at a very low cost. The customer service was great and the rooms are lavish with huge bathrooms and plenty of ammenities. For the price I paid I was tremendously delighted with my stay. It has a shopping mall withing the hotel, great restaurants and a nice Lounge bar and Club. The one item I was disappointed abouty was the pool. Alothough it has a decent view I would not stay here if I cam to hang out by the pool. Its tiny and not very extravagant by Vegas standard.
Unique Quality: The vibe you get from this casino is very cool. It's theme, if you haven't guessed it by know, is of an Arabian Night! Very pleasing! Some select rooms have a direct view of the Bellagio, which has the most amazing water show. The view is simply amazing, very romantic!
Directions: Center of The Strip, directly across from the Bellagio.
It is wonderful, the buffet is great the casino is big, the shopping is great, excellent location on the strip
Unique Quality: Didn't get to the pool, but the shopping is connected to the hotel
Directions: Las Vegas Strip
This hotel can have excellent rates for the quality. We have stayed there twice, for 10 and 11 nights respectively.
It is also possible to get a free upgrade, by showing a $20 bill fairly discreetly, like in your hand folded with your credit card, and saying 'I wondered if you have any free upgrades available'. On our first visit we got a 'fountain view' and second visit we got a 'resort room' with fountain view.
Hotel has everything you need, and a shopping mall right downstairs. Location good too, although we tend to head for further up the strip at night.
Unique Quality: Good views - bellagio fountain.
Pool average by vegas standards, but excellent by european standards. Shopping mall very handy (ABC store has basic food and drinks, including alcohol).
Directions: Right between Paris and Polo Towers.
Opposite Bellagio and fountains.
I am writing this tip in memory of the Aladdin, as this hotel was recently purchased by Planet Hollywood, and will be renovated in the next couple of years. Although there have been no firm dates, this will certainly begin its process in the near future. Sad to see it go, especially considering it was just rennovated to the new Aladdin in 2000!
Here is a view of the Aladdin, whose hotel is covered by Starwood Hotel Properties.
The Aladdin hotel was an amazing hotel that has been recently remodeled.
There is a wide range of shops in the desert passage with shops for everyone including build a bear workkshop for the kids, Fcuk for the teens and also for the mums, all while dad is on the slot machines!
The rooms are exceptional with a massive bathroom with shower room, toilet room ,large bath and two sinks all in the one room.
There is a computer in many rooms where you can surf the internet (for a cost of course) all though you can look at the hotel website for free and check out all the eating places. These include the Bonsai sushibar, Zanzibar cafe, the Tremezzo and many more.
Unique Quality: The Aladdin boasts two rooftop outdoor pools and if you are hungry there's no need to get up as the poolside waitresses are happy to help.
Towels by the pool are complimentry if you show your card key.
The Aladdin gift shop is very reasonable and great for those last minute gifts.
Also in the desert passage you can experience the realistic rain storm, of course you dont get wet. It is by the the small lake in the hotel where the sound effects come from making you feel like you are in the rainstorm. This is at the top of every half hour.
First, the hotel was great. Reception was efficient. Our room was nice, spacious, clean, etc. I honestly wasn't picky because we were getting the room for free though. Obviously, this is Vegas and you usually don't spend much time in your hotel, but a few extras in your sleeping arrangements can make your trip a lot more palatable. The pool was nice and well maintained. You could buy drinks near the pool, but they are overpriced. I'd recommend sneaking in a few pre-made Captain & Coke's. Oh yeah- the casino! I'm not a real big gambler, so I'm not the one to judge a casino. All that I know is that I had zero luck at the casino, and they were much slower on drinks then the Bellagio. All-in-all, a good place to stay.
Great rooms, great shopping...but even better, I think the buffet restaurant (can't recall the name) in the Aladdin is the best in Vegas! We booked the Aladdin through hotwire and ended up paying only $80/nt which is a steal for this hotel.
The location is perfect too!
Unique Quality: Best buffet
Directions: On the Strip!
From Planet Hollywood Room
Has anyone stayed at the new Planet Hollywood? If so, how was it? There doesn't seem to be a lot of info out on it yet.
I'm planning a trip to LV for mid August and thought this would be a fun place to stay.
Also, anyone know of a good discounts for the hotel?
what dates do you need it for?
I have stayed there 3twice in the last year. I found it quite nice, big bathrooms and comfortable beds
It also has one of the best buffets in Las Vegas with the Spice Market Buffet. The seafood section was most amazing with oysters on the half shell and crab legs, all you can eat. I was overwhelmed by the selection. They have a great website: http://www.planethollywoodresort.com/
We're thinking the dates will be somewhere around the week of 16th to the 21st.
