    pH and Park are the places I wouldn't pick if I was going with my wife, to be honest. Either way, not knowing which weekend, how budget conscious you are, what types of food you like, if you like to go out in the pool etc, it's hard to make a perfect recommendation. I do prefer pH over Park, personally...but I think Paris is better for a married couple than pH.

    Of the two rooms you listed, I'd go with Planet Hollywood Ultra Hip King.

    I've only stayed at PH but have read many reviews, here and elsewhere, regarding Park MGM. I would stay at PH. It did have a few minor problems but it was a decent room and a great casino. The wife also enjoyed our stay there.

    Planet Hollywood is superior in almost every possible way. The rooms are larger, the bathrooms in the rooms are larger and nicer with separate tubs and showers. There are more restaurants at PH, the location is superior, and the room service menu is far larger and is actual room service vs "package" items.

    Even your check in experience will be better. Park has primarily self check in kiosks with two attendants to resolve any issues or check in Mlife Gold and above guests. PH has live desk agents as well as self check in options. If you are Diamond or 7 Stars you can use the Diamond Registration Lounge.

    My wife and I have stayed at PH for the last 5 years and have enjoyed it. Really not a fan of Park so a Ultra Hip and ask for strip view would be nice. Enjoy.

    Will you have a car? If so, I would choose Park over PH. Stayed in PH with a car last month and the parking was so horrible that I cancelled our July trip at PH because we will have a car again and don't want to mess with the PH garage again. If no car, then I would definitely choose PH over Park MGM.

    The only thing Park MGM has over PH is that its newer, in all the other categories its an easy win for PH,

    Yeah but PH is free while you have to pay at park MGM, since op is paying for his stay its very likely hes not a big enough player to get free parking at park mgm

    Can you provide some more details? Just booked 3 nights at PH and have a rental car planned. Never had a car on the strip before.

    PH has the location which is hard to be funny a food options in and around. The only thing park MGM has over ph would be the parking

    I am going with PH for all of the above reasons. Park MGM is also getting some really bad reviews. Especially thin walls etc.
