    If staying at Planet Hollywood and put in for a Lyft or Uber pickup where is the pickup location?
    Can they meet you right on the Strip by let's say the bus stop location in front of Planet Hollywood or do they have the same restrictions as cabs where you cannot pick up directly on the strip?

    Awesome that will help.
    Is there a link to the downtown locations or is that more flexible?

    After being signed up over a year ago with both,,,,we finally used Lift. We have lost a lot of promos during that time. Just did not need the rides at those times.
    I must say that we were more than satisfied. Used Lift twice this trip. Did have a $5.00 off for several rides. Each driver had a good personality.
    We went over board and tipped each one $5. That was our discount, so we used it. The ride, minus discount, plus tip was $8.51 and $8.37 (?) total cost.
    Orleans to Planet Hollywood and back.
    This thread is about Planet Hollywood and that was the only small problem.
    P H people told us to stage at the Buss staging area. Where ever that was. Lift driver stated that for him, it was different than before.
    Each driver has been driving for only about a month. No problem from us. One driver was only Lift and the other was both.
    Both stated that Lift paid them more. Talked about their insurance and what the company supplied.
    This was sooo much different than a taxi. Would have saved about an average of 3 minutes using a taxi. Time vs cost?? Yes, really. Felt like we hit a slot jackpot for the cost.
    Clean cars, clean cut drivers, spoke to us in a very professional manner, and informed us about the drive service and answered our many questions.
    One used to be a meal server at Orleans and the other was part time being a flight attendant.
    We will always use these rides, at regular price. Not sure about the surge pricing.
    What took us soo long??
