    My host put me in a Strip Suite at Planet Hollywood for my next trip in August. From the information that I have gathered : 850 sq. ft. 1 king bed, 2 tvs, etc. I called the reservation hotline and the lady that helped me says that she didn't have much information on this suite on her end because this is a "host only reserved room type". I looked on other hotel booking sites and pricing is outrageous and not sure who how book this room for that pricing... The reservation lady today said the information that she sees on this room "Strip Suite King" is that it could be used as a 'connector room' for the Apex Suites and/or Boulevard Suites. She couldn't even see if these rooms have a pull out sofa bed in them, as I told my host I needed 2 seperate beds for my accomodations. From what I have found on this 'strip suite' online, it isn't even techinally a suite becuase there is not even a seperate bedroom. Upon asking the reservation hotline lady today about the room size, she told me it looks to be about 1,800 sq. ft. - My initial thinking is the lady I spoke to today really didn't know what she was talking about about this room regarding the size, if there is a pullout sofa bad, and that it was a host only reservation room. Anyone with knowledge of PH suites is greatly appreciated!


    The confirmation that my host sent to me a few weeks ago state the room as follows:
    Room Selection & Preferences
    STRIP STE NS K

    Any and all help / comments are appreciated.

    I stayed in a Strip Suite during my first stay at PH, same thing a host set it up and i had no clue how it would be. It is not a true suite with seperate rooms and frankly its a fairly weak faux-suite too. No way in hell its 1800 sqft, the 850 sqft sounds right. The problem is the seating/living room area is tiny and useless. It is basically just the foyer and all it has are two armchairs. No sofa. There is no fridge but they threw one in for me. The bathroom is large with a decent sized shower, large round tub, and two vanity sinks. But there is no door for the bathroom and its open to the sleeping area.

    Overall the suite feels fairly small because of the design and the useless sitting area. We just used that area to throw our bags and put up the ironing board. It's the only time I stayed at PH so don't know how other rooms and suites are but I would definitely try for an upgrade next time.

    EDITED TO ADD: that suite in the video the previous poster posted is NOT the Strip Suite.

    Thank you for the reply, Blonde_4_ever and KickinChicken. When searching YouTube, you get a ton of different stuff, from both the PH Towers, and different suites in the PH Resort, mostly dated stuff. I think KickinChicken hit it on the head with what I was visioning. I emailed my host (who set this room up) and requested more info if there is a pull out sofa bed and sq footage, etc... hopefully I get a good detailed respose. Regardless, I'm going to inquire about a complementary upgrade at check-in (8pm friday night checkin for 3 nights, though). That video link in that Blonde_4_ever posted - I can't see that room / suite as a connector room for the Apex or Blvd suite as the reservation lady stated...

    That video is incorrectly labeled. It's not the Strip Suite. I just stayed in it last month. You won't have a sofa bed because there is no sofa in the first place. Good luck with the upgrade. We checked in on a Saturday morning which is probably the only time harder to get an upgrade than a Friday night. All the posts I read of people getting good upgrades have been when checking in during the middle of the week, not the weekends. I'm mid-level Diamond and also opened up a decent sized credit line there, at least decent sized for PH I'd imagine. None of that mattered, she said they were fully booked and couldn't upgrade.

    Hey Folks!

    I am staying in the Strip Suite in december and I'm really hoping for a upgrade. I think this video shows the exact room:

    It's the Strip Suite, isn't it? If it is, it's not that great...

    Yes, ex507's video is the correct Strip Suite. So you can see what I mean about the useless seating area and how the whole thing feels small.

    thank you es507, ez369, and KickinChicken again for your help - hopefully I can get things ironed out and get an upgrade. That room lacks something - if I was paying for that 'suite' I would be a little disappointed to say the least... Once again, Thank you everyone whom contributed to this conversation.

    My trip is quickly approaching - I just logged into my totalrewards account to check my upcoming trip details. My host put upgraded me into the Panorama Suite (from the disappointing Strip Suite) according to my conf # / trip details. Guess I didn't need to wonder about the strip suite so much in the past. This news gets me even more pumped for this upcoming weekend !

    We stayed in a room just like that and don't recall that it was called a suite.
    Not sure of the name, but I could be wrong. My memory just isn't the same. :cry:

    Not sure what is the deal but about 3-4 years ago every hotel had a floor plan and pictures of the different rooms. Now nothing. They seem to use the same images for the different rooms. I wonder since many hotels and remodeling that it may be some time before the images/floor plans get updated.

    The "Hot Shots Part Deux" Suite. It looks like a better suite than it was a movie.

    Just returned from Vegas. They put me in the Panorama suite, I attempted a complimentary upgrade - they said that they were completely maxed out. Went to Panorama Suite (South 701, great view of the roof, non smoking room) - I had strongly requested a smoking room from the start. Proceeded back to diamond / seven stars checkin and mentioned that I was put into a non smoking room. The manager on duty said, "A lot of people will smoke in the non smoking rooms, we just ionize the rooms after they checkout. She said "its no big deal, we just can't tell you its ok to smoke in non smoking room"... She started looking and looking in the computer for a smoking room, becuase I told her I really didn't feel comfortable smoking in a non smoking room. about 10 minutes later she told me that she found me a replacement room on a smoking floor and that I would be very pleased with the room - South 3407. I asked the room type and she said, "its a nicer suite, larger room, and a much better view than the 7th floor. She said its a Boulevard Suite".

    I must say, she was right - great view, laid out room. The only somewhat surprising detail about the room is that were was no movie / music memoriabilia in the room, just random decorative photos throughout. Overall, great upgrade to a great room, with a great view.

    Smokey5826 - thanks for the update. We will be at PH early next week. On a trip several years, ago upon checking at PH, I asked for an upgrade an received a comped stay in a Panorama suite. It was an OK suite. Small bedroom, big living room with large entertainment/sitting area, bar, coffee maker. And, a Pool Table greeted you upon entering the room. Could you tell me about the Boulevard suite? I might ask for un upgrade to that suite next week. Is there the possibility for an adjoining room?

    later, GVJ
