Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino
Planet Hollywood is home to a 100,000-square-foot casino and plenty of restaurants, lounges, and bars, just like most resorts along the Strip, but visitors are mostly drawn to the shopping mall and live shows. The Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood stretches for just more than a mile with roughly 200 shops, including brand-name retailers like Urban Outfitters, Victoria’s Secret, and H&M.
On the entertainment side, the hotel is home to a handful of theaters including the 7,000-seat Zappos Theater, where headliners such as Gwen Stefani and the Backstreet Boys have residency shows (sadly, Britney Spears’ residency at PH ended in 2017). Other options include magicians like Criss Angel’s Mindfreak show and the Crazy Girls topless revue. Tickets for most shows can be bought online. Some Las Vegas nightclub and attraction passes include a meal or a discount on a show at Planet Hollywood.
