Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Premium Fountain View  from  Hollywood Hip Room 

Booked a comped Hollywood Hip room through Caesars rewards for a weekend in late February during my birthday. Since I spent virtually nothing to book the room, I was a bit worried that $20 wouldn’t be enough, but it was worth a shot. Not sure if it was because it was my birthday, using the sandwich trick or maybe both, but I got upgraded to a fountain view room that was double the size of my original room. $20 well spent.
P.S. If they ask if you would rather have a fountain view or a strip view, always go for the fountain view, because it also has a good view of the strip.

Not my best experience, but it was still a nice(ish) hotel.

I checked in on 2/5/19 at about 10 p.m. for a 3 night stay, and decided to go with $50 instead of $20, I used the regular line other successful guests posted on here. The young lady placed it to the side and began typing so comically fast I was sure she wasn’t typing words. She noted that I booked a king and she was going to go in the back to see if there were any upgrades. She came back and showed me my room on the map and I was on my way. She did note they were almost full in the hotel and she did her best, and thanked me. I’m not quite sure how they would have been booked because it was pretty dead the entire time I was here. There were some Lunar New Year stragglers but not as many guests as I’ve seen this hotel hold.

The room I walked into was 2 queens instead of a king. The view wasn’t great because most of it was the Hilton next door and the roof of the Mall/parking below. The room was sparsely decorated with a small side table and a lamp that looked like eggs. The laminate on the dresser had begun to lift which ended up catching my pant leg and snapping off later in the trip. The carpet on my floor was also buckled in several areas which wasn’t a problem when I first arrived, but became one when I was tired and dragging my feet a bit more than normal.

All in all, while I was aware that a sizable upgrade is often a leap, I found myself disappointed with the upgrade. I checked online and saw that a 2 queen upgrade was $4 per night extra. Such is life though, while I personally wouldn’t have accepted a $50 tip for a $12 upgrade, perhaps she wasn’t aware of the trick. She was still nice enough to warrant a tip so I wasn’t too broken up over it.

This is our second time staying at PH and the tip worked both times! Last year we booked a standard room (weren’t TR members yet) and were able to get a Resort Vista with $20 tip. This year, we had 3 comped nights and were able to upgrade from the Hip Room to Resort Vista with $50 tip. We chose to do $50 this time since the nights were comped. LOVE Planet Hollywood!

Tipped:  $20 Upgraded to  Premium Fountain View  from  Hollywood Hip Room 

Just gave the sandwich and asked for a nice room. He acknowledged, thanked me and found the room.

Arrived around 1pm, he mentioned no early check-in fee, but I didn’t have the impression there would have been one anyway.

Gave the nice gentleman the sandwich and was upgraded with no problem. It was only a single night but the upgraded room was totally worth it.

It was too busy to target anyone in particular but we spoke with a very nice woman. I handed her my card, ID, and $40. Before I could say anything she saw the tip and said “thanks, I’ll see what I can do for you!” Her first offer was the panoramic suite which was $400 more per night but offered to talk to her manager to see what they could do four us. We declined because it only had one king and we had four people in our room but I wish I could’ve known what they were willing to do! Instead she upgraded us to a premium fountain view room that was larger with a beautiful view of the bellagio fountains and the entire strip. She also waived the early check in fee and offered us a complimentary roll away. It definitely worked! Just give it a try!

I did a double twenty because I had two requests. We had a 3rd staying with us but a roll-away was going to cost an extra $30/night if we booked it in advance so that was request #1. The second request was for a room upgrade (I specifically asked for the Resort Vista room because it was larger. Our helpful attendant was very accommodating, took care of everything and even helped our friends who were checking in next to us to also upgrade *their* room so they would be on the same floor as us.

Came in late at 9PM on a Monday night. Eschewed the express self checkin, and TotalRewards App checkin, and did the ‘sandwich.’ He set it aside and gave us a nicer room, he said worth $80 more, with a view of Bellagio fountains, huge bathroom, with two sinks on each side, tub and separate shower. He prefaced the tip as a tip for his service, not the room (maybe the supervisor showed up?).

Saved:  $Not sure, but we were comped for 6 nights; only paid for one, not including resort fees. Tipped:  $40 Upgraded to  Premium Fountain View  from  Hollywood Hip Room 

We arrived about 11:30 a.m., so there was only one clerk. I decided I would try $40 just to make it worth the clerk’s effort. I handed over the sandwich and said, “I was wondering if there was a comped upgrade available.” She said, “Let me see what we have for you.” My heart sank because I thought she was just going to give me my reserved room. She said she was giving me a high floor with a view and a nicer room. The room was on the 20th floor in the south tower overlooking the Bellagio fountains. It was all I could have asked for. I don’t know that I have ever spent a better $40. Our stay was for 6 nights. Our flight home didn’t leave until 11 p.m. They comped us another night in the same upgraded room. I would recommend Planet Hollywood to anyone. Also, I, too, was nervous about asking for the comped upgrade (especially since 5 of my 6 nights were already comped), but the clerk didn’t even wince. It seemed to me that she was comfortable with the request even if she had been unable to fulfill it. So, if anyone is thinking of asking, I encourage you to ASK. If it is denied, it will probably be done politely and you will not be forced to feel embarrassed.

Planet Hollywood Details

Planet Hollywood is a Las Vegas resort and casino that was founded in 1991 by Bryan Kestner, a former actor, producer and businessman. Kestner was the founder of the Hard Rock Café, which turned out to be highly successful. He believed his Planet Hollywood venture would be equally so. The company was pretty profitable initially, but things went downhill in the 20th century. Planet Hollywood had to change hands before things started to improve.

The casino has received support from numerous celebrities. It faced a history of financial problems due to poor management and was eventually sold to Caesars Entertainment in 2010. Under new management, it has become one of the most popular casinos in The Entertainment Capital of the World.

Well Known Celebrities Support Planet Hollywood Brand

Planet Hollywood is one of the best known casinos in the world. One of the reasons it is so famous is that a large number of celebrities have endorsed it over the years. A-list celebrities that support the casino include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Demi Demore and Sylvester Salone. The casino gave many of these actors free Esops in exchange for their patronage, which helped boost the brand.

However, the value of the publicity they provided declined as they got older and their performance in the box offices started to decline. According to the Economic Times, the casino’s revenues declined after they gold older, which contributed to the problems that led to the casino filing for bankruptcy twice.

After Caesar took over the ailing establishment, it has found new ways to leverage celebrities to boost its reputation. In a rather controversial move, Planet Hollywood recently hosted a showdown between GOP presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Marco Rubio. Planet Hollywood has also recently provided accommodations to Pitbull, Janet Jackson and other leading celebrities, which is helping improve its brand.

Britney Spears has recently spent $100,000 to make a career comeback, which includes a two-year residency at Planet Hollywood. She will be making dozens of performances at the resort, which is expected to help create traction for both parties.

Customer Reviews of Planet Hollywood

Planet Hollywood is one of the highest rated casinos on the Las Vegas Strip. It is recommended by 86% of Expedia members that have visited it.

There are a number of reasons that Planet Hollywood is so strongly recommended. It is well-known for having attentive staff and providing fun activities, both for people that want to gamble or enjoy the resort. Many people have said that it is especially good for single people, since there aren’t many kids around. However, one of the biggest reasons that many people enjoy their stay at Planet Hollywood is that it is right in the center of the Strip, which makes it easy to enjoy their stay in Las Vegas.
