TRANSFORMATION of the Aladdin Resort & Casino into the
Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino is set to begin next month and
will be done in phases so the property can remain open during the
entire renovation, which is expected to be completed in
fourth-quarter 2006. The Planet Hollywood Resort will feature new
restaurants and nightclubs, renovated hotel suites and rooms, an
expanded casino floor and a Planet Hollywood Westgate tower that
will house 1,000 multi-room timeshare, condominium and hotel units.
As part of a previously announced partnership with Clear Channel,
the 7,000-seat Theatre for the Performing Arts will get a new look,
and work has begun on a 1,500-seat showroom.
