The Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino has followed the lead of many luxury resorts on the Las Vegas Strip by adopting an adjoining sister hotel. Unlike others, however, the hotel includes residential timeshare condos and was built in partnership with Westgate Resorts. This marriage has resulted in the only timeshare-slash-hotel in the world directly linked to a luxury hotel and casino. What does this mean for you? If you have your eye on a Vegas vacation, it means choosing ph Towers Westgate guarantees you will have the space of a condo with convenient access to a lively casino and all that Vegas visitors expect from that particular experience – the restaurants, shops, spa and shows. If you are considering a timeshare in Sin City, it means much closer proximity to the action than was previously available.

Because ph Towers is a condotel, every room is a suite. I have stayed in many suites, some that I feel took a lot of liberty with the “suite” definition (i.e. the existence of a two-person couch at the foot of the bed and a mini-fridge in the closet does not make the room a suite) and some that truly have a residential feel to them. This hotel falls into the latter category with suites that could be lived in, even on a permanent basis. In fact, I have never stayed in a Vegas hotel with larger standard rooms.
I always pay particularly close attention to room design. To me, a room needs to be beautiful, functional and have homey comforts in order to impress me. Ph Towers’ décor is, fittingly for the Las Vegas locale, ultra modern. Rooms are decorated in tuxedo black, lipstick red and bright white in a particular style of beauty best described as glamorous. One-bedroom and two-bedroom suites have a full-size and fully-equipped kitchen with a table that seats six. Roominess aside, stand-outs for this property are the projection screen theater in the living area and the hot tub next to the bed. Another plus good enough to mention are the mirrors. They are everywhere.
The hotel compensates for the areas in which it lacks by giving their owners and guests complete access to the amenities of Planet Hollywood. For example, although the hotel has a beautiful and sunny pool and cabana area, guests looking for a spa treatment need to visit Planet Hollywood. For guests who crave casual shopping, the Miracle Mile shops are ultimately well-positioned practically in the lobby. To give you an idea of shop proximity, while taking a self-guided tour of the main level of the hotel, I found myself suddenly (and happily) in the middle of the mall.
Ph Towers Westgate is making its mark on the Vegas luxury hotel market because of its unique features. I recommend it for travelers who want room to spare without giving up casino action. Its glitz and reasonable pricing also make it extra appealing to a younger crowd.
