I visited the Planet Hollywood casino in January while the Miss America pageant was going on, and I was pretty impressed by the buffet, but the level of service on the casino floor could be improved.



The Spice Market Buffet is touted as the best deal for gourmet buffets. And while the food is very good, the price is still somewhat steep (especially because they charge a couple bucks extra for champagne during the brunch). You can usually find coupons that help offset the cost. My advice is to join the players club, whereupon you receive a coupon book with great deals. I especially like the $25 match play coupon -- I've gotten that twice now and both times used it at the blackjack table -- where I won both times, turning 25 bucks into 75! Nice, I like.



Getting back to the buffet; I had the best omellette I've ever had at any of the buffets I've visited. Just a simple ham & cheese deal, but it was awesome! Also, they have great shrimp, freshly-made waffles, and crepes!! The crepes were awesome, but save them for last because they fill you up. To top it off, they have cotton candy! And the champagne is not too bad.



The lighting and decor of Planet Hollywood is pretty cool, a place where I could kick it for a while and drink -- that is if the servers ever waited on me. Also, the slots don't seem to be too forgiving. And stay away from Yolos Mexican Grill -- the waitress ripped me off. I had a buy 1/get 1 free beer coupon, and I showed it to her before I ordered -- so she just upped the price on one beer to offset the free one. Always order before you show your coupon! Lesson learned.



If you take full advantage of the players' club coupon book, and like shopping, then Planet Hollywood is a cool place to visit while you're on the strip. Park at the garage, then you can walk through the Miracle Mile shops on your way to the casino.
