Planet Hollywood Upgrade?

I'm planning to stay at Planet Hollywood after Christmas. We have never stayed there. I like to have a nice room with a lovely view. The room we have booked is Hollywood Hip. From those of you have have upgraded there -- what you ask for in order to get a little better than average room with a nice view. I don't mind paying extra, I just don't know what to ask for. Thanks! t

Our son stayed at PH and got an upgrade. They got a Go Room with a strip view and did not have to pay extra. I am wondering if they had numerous unbooked rooms. If you gamble a lot you can talk to the host to see what he/she can do for you. Of course, it does not hurt to, at least, ask the reservationist for a free upgrade. ;)

I suggest just asking for a strip (fountain view) room. It is not likely you will get a panorama suite or spa suite and the other rooms are not that different IMO. The view is the main difference unless size (resort room) matters more.

The room categories generally progress from Hollywood Hip, Resort Room, Resort Vista, Strip Suite, Panoramic Suite, Boulevard Suite, Apex Suite, etc.. and then Penthouse level suites generally blocked off by the casino hosts.. There's also various views within the Hollywood Hip rooms . You maybe interested in asking for a Resort Vista room.. has a completely different layout and is a little larger than hollywood hip room and the bathroom has a really nice view of the strip. Rack rates are quite a bit higher than a hollywood hip, however maybe they can cut you a deal at check-in.

I would guess it unlikely that you would get a free upgrade to a Resort Vista, but as the previous poster said they might quote you an upgrade fee (per night) that's still a bargain compared to what it would have cost to book the Resort Vista room originally.

Thanks for the advice. We'll just see what they have at check-in. I'll ask for a fountain view room or a resort vista and go from there. I'm sure whatever they have will be fine!
