The Planet Hollywood hotel is located in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip. This is a very popular hotel with the younger crowd. The Spice Market buffet here is well known and has great quality food at a reasonable price. In fact, it’s one of the options if you choose to purchase the “Buffet of Buffets” – a pass which allows you to sample up to six different buffets in Vegas in a 24-hour period. Definitely not for the faint-hearted or for those watching their waistlines, but a great value for those looking to feast! One of the biggest draws at this hotel is the Miracle Mile shops where you can find many of the more mainstream brands, which will not break the bank. Here, there’s H&M, Sephora, Chinese Laundry, Gap, Gap Kids, Benetton, Aldo, and you can even find a Garrett’s popcorn for the Navy family! For those looking for a quick and cheap bite, Earl of Sandwich is a crowd pleaser. The lines are always long here but it moves very quickly. Connected to the Miracle Mile shops is the Hilton Grand Vacations, Elara, which does not have a casino in its lobby. It is a great hotel for military families. Security is tight here and security not only asks to see your room key but they will also check it with a card reader to make sure it works!

INSIDER TIP: Park on the third level of the parking structure – you’ll walk right into the first level of shops!
