    I would choose CP, never stayed at Planet Hollywood but I like the CP location a lot. That and the forum tower rooms are newer than the PH ones I believe. Your better value most likely lies in accepting the forum tower room.

    I've stayed in both rooms and both are pretty nice. It comes down to pretty nitpicky differences.

    Caesars room has some toys like electronic drapes. No tub at all, but very large, cool shower.

    PH room has separate shower and tub.

    Personally, I got better service at PH (Caesars will hassle more about early check-in, and don't organize check-in well), and like that casino better (less sprawling, better vibe).

    On the other hand, the Caesars pool area is nicer.

    Bit of a toss up. Think I'd do PH over winter months, but Caesars if its pool weather.

    Do both? I booked 1 night at Ph hip and 2 nights Caesars forum. Check YouTube for room reviews, both look excellent.

    Anything but PH! Bleh. Great to visit, not to stay.

    I have done both, except stayed in Augustus Tower at CP. I prefer PH, better all around vibe, easier to get around and prices on property for drinks, coffee etc more reasonable.

    I would consider CP if it was pool season and if you plan on making that a big part of your trip. The PH pool is pretty lame, just a cement hole w water around it and very loud music.

    We did both this summer

    2 nights Forum Tower, 3 nights PH. PH room isn't quite as big, but much nicer. BUT we were offered $30/nt upgrade to Palace Tower. We had done the Palace Tower but I wanted to see the Forum Tower myself. It is fine--but the Palace Tower is luxurious.

    I won't do a split trip anymore. If these were my choices I would choose PH--UNLESS it was pool season or I felt like splurging if they offered me an upgrade.

    Also--getting to the Forum Tower is a serious trek. Quick trip from strip to PH room.

    Agree with earlier posters.
    PH unless you're planning to put in significant pool time.
    PH pool is not worth the trip.

    this is false. I've stayed in the Forum Tower Deluxe rooms several times and always had a separate tub. Unless there are Forum Tower rooms and then Forum Tower "deluxe" rooms?

    I'd choose Caesars, better overall property and chance of upgrades make it worth it. PHo is nice, but probably easier to get comped more often, so I try to enjoy Caesars when it's available.

    I am late forties, so found the crowds of young people who were pretty loud at PH a little too much for me, along with the loud party music. Pretty casino though and cheap eats around which is a plus.
    The rooms there look to be very nice, but I would prefer Caesars, have stayed there three times and was upgraded by asking nicely all three times, then tipped after they were kind enough to get the upgrade to Augustus and Palace.
    I know there is more walking at Caesars, but it has about everything gambling wise we would want and fairly quiet casino. Drawback is there is only one reasonable place to eat there.
    Think either would be nice depending on what you are looking for.

    I had a room at Caesars in the Palace tower and my sister wanted the Forum tower for the electronic drapes and doorbell. I wasn't impressed with her room at all. I'd stay at PH over the Forum tower rooms.
