About Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino - Las Vegas
Ah, Las Vegas – a glittering jewel in the Nevada desert. The centerpiece of Sin City is almost certainly the Planet Hollywood Las Vegas, the casino and hotel that shines with glass, neon, and mirrors. This casino offers much more than just a few slots and other places to lose your money, though; thanks to the world-famous Zappos Theater inside the venue, it’s been the home of some of the biggest and most major performances ever.
History of Planet Hollywood Las Vegas
This casino and hotel, like so many others in Vegas, exists on the site of an even older one: the Tallyho hotel, constructed in 1962 and renamed the Aladdin in 1966. It lasted until 1997 when it was torn down to make way for a brand new Aladdin, which immediately ran into financial troubles. Planet Hollywood came to the rescue, buying out the now-bankrupt casino in 2003 and renovating it for a grand re-opening in 2007. The rest, as they say, is history.
What Makes Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Events So Special?
Let’s face it: if you’re going to be in Vegas, you need to see at least one show. With the Planet Hollywood’s reputation for showcasing the best and most famous musical artists anywhere, you can’t help but take in a performance there. Plus, the rest of the casino and hotel is right there waiting for you as soon as the show’s over. It’s nonstop fun and games – as long as you don’t forget your wallet!
