  • Best for kids because: Exciting atmosphere
  • Parent's night out options: Crazy Girls Burlesque, dinner at Strip House
  • Family things to do: Swimming, shopping, magic shows
  • What we like: Newly renovated rooms, near a Monorail station
  • What we don't like: Pool is public

Movie magic in Sin City! The vibe is glitz and glamour befitting the silver screen. Planet Hollywood’s mid-range price is a good value for the money, a little less frilly without sacrificing the fun.
