I know we’re getting close when I start seeing billboard signs for lame shit. This one was rotating LeRoy’s – and I got lucky and caught it before we drove by.
Every year we take a trip to Vegas and stay in a different hotel. We’ve been so many times and Pep went to UNLV – fun college experience, right? – and my dad moved here when I was 15, so we pretty much know what it looks like. We usually opt for a pretty awesome suite because we know how much time we’ll spend in it – and we like to review the rooms (and the food – KOI was my fav this time- and some of the best sushi I’ve ever had -Al, I want those pics!). This year we chose the PH (Planet Hollywood) which used to be the Aladdin (which we stayed at one year as well – and the Desert Passage shops are my fav!). We got a panoramic suite with windows all the way around however, they hadn’t redone the hallways on our floor yet, so they still had genie lamps carpet which was kinda lame. Our suite was at the end of the hallway with black double doors that entered into a foyer with two other sets of doors; ours and one other suite’s.
Our room was fairly awesome.
What at first I thought was lame, I came to really enjoy about our room. It was very “Hollywood” – like Planet Hollywood is I guess. There were display cases with costumes and other paraphernalia from films. The above is Sigourney Weaver’s space suit from Alien. The coffee table in the living room had the t-shirt (in it) from the little boy from “Kramer vs Kramer”. There was another life-size display case with a jacket Dustin Hoffman wore in …shit, what was it? And a dress that Faye Dunaway wore in “Little Big Man” …which Dustin Hoffman was also in -weird. But still, it was kinda neato, even being from LA and all.
