Tally Ho Hotel, a property owned by Edwin S. Lowe, was the predecessor of present-day Planet Hollywood. When it first opened in 1963, it was the only major hotel without a casino in Nevada, which likely contributed to its closing at the end of the year. The subsequent owner, Kings Crown Inn of America, reopened it as King’s Crown Tally Ho.
In 1966, Milton Prell acquired the hotel and renovated it. But Prell wasn’t the last owner and Tally Ho wasn’t its last name. By 2007, the complex was renamed Planet Hollywood – it was formerly known as Aladdin – after it was co-purchased by Planet Hollywood and Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.
The current owner is Caesars Entertainment Corporation, among the world’s largest operators and owners of entertainment-themed resorts.
What They Are Famous For
Planet Hollywood Las Vegas has a few signature attractions including the Miracle Mile Shops and the Zappos Theater. The resort is also known for its strong Hollywood theme and for the frequent visits from Hollywood celebrities.
Why Eat Here
The Spice Market Buffet is widely regarded as among the best buffets in Las Vegas. This is due to the combination of its wide array of delicious food and drinks, relaxed and quiet ambiance, and efficient service.
The breakfast choices are so extensive that it’s nearly impossible to resist the temptation to eat until you’re full. These include waffles, pancakes, eggs, bacon, toast, and cereal, which are staples of an American breakfast, as well as dishes inspired by the cuisines of Italy, the Middle East, and Asia. The diverse choice make it so easy, too, to satisfy your cravings for whatever type of breakfast you have in mind, whether it’s an exotic coconut white rice or a favorite pancakes, eggs, and bacon combo.
If you want a vegetarian meal, your best bet is the Middle Eastern station with its grilled vegetables, hummus and the like. But if you want meat for your breakfast, you will also find it at the carving station – and it’s an uncommon feature in breakfast buffets in Las Vegas. The carving station usually offers smoked sausages, corned beef hash, and flame-broiled tri-tip steak although the choices also change on a fairly regular basis.
Keep in mind that many of the choices are high in calories but this isn’t surprising as breakfast items usually fall into this category. But don’t despair as the Spice Market Buffet has plenty of healthy choices, too, such as yogurt with several choices in toppings, baked oatmeal with fresh fruits, and cream of wheat. There are also several flavors of fresh fruit smoothies, such as strawberry-pineapple and strawberry-banana, which are usually served in individual cups.
The hash and egg selections are varied, too, with choices like sweet chili potato hash, country-style has, and regular hash browns as well as eggs with sausages, eggs with meats and veggies, and eggs with spinach. This is good news for guests who want more variety to familiar breakfast items.
The buffet stations also feature crab-stuffed sole, pasta dishes like the wild mushroom pasta, oven-baked pizzas, and egg custard buns, and chicken and cauliflower curries. The desserts choices include made-to-order crepes with toppings like whipped cream, chocolate sauce, sliced almonds, raisins, cranberries, and peaches, to name a few.
Perhaps the best thing about the Spice Market Buffet is that guests can refill the non-alcoholic drinks by themselves (i.e., self-serve). We consider it a great feature because of the freedom to get as many or as little as you want, although we know of a few people who appreciate refills from servers more.
The buffet restaurant also serves lunch and dinner, as well as a champagne brunch on weekends. Guests who avail of the champagne brunch will enjoy unlimited pouring of Domaine Ste. Michelle Champagne. The beverage selections during the breakfast, lunch, and dinner hours include coffee and freshly-squeezed orange juice, both of which are above the usual fast-food quality.
The service is efficient from the time the server greets guests at the door and takes their drink orders to the time the servers place the guests’ food on their plates. The overall vibe is relatively upbeat with piped-in music, usually rock n’ roll and pop, and televisions showing sporting events. The interiors are also strongly Hollywood in look with the movie posters on the walls and the dim lighting reminiscent of a movie theater.
The line moves fairly quickly, too, although the breakfast hours can be more hectic than usual. The buffet restaurant is easy to find, too, since there are clear signs pointing to it. The Planet Hollywood buffet prices are on the higher side in comparison with many of the buffets in Las Vegas but the excellent dining experience makes it worthwhile.
