The Aladdin, situated on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada, is a casino resort owned and managed by OpBiz, a partnership of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Bay Harbor Management, and Robert Earl. The Hotel was established in 1963 as Tally-Ho and was later renamed as the Kingâs Crown. In 1966, it was purchased by Milton Prell, who renovated the hotel completely. The English theme of the Hotel was converted to an Arabian Nights theme. In addition, a serrated canopy and a 15-story âAladdinâs Lampâ were also added.
The Aladdin featured a 9-hole golf course and an elegant Sinbad Lounge. However, on November 25, 1997, The Aladdin closed and the ground was broken for the construction of an entirely new casino. It finally reopened in the year 2000, when it featured an expanded casino, new nightclub, new restaurants, and a retail space, known as âThe Desert Passageâ. Another major attraction at The Aladdin is the popular rain show featured at the V Theater.
The Aladdin Hotel and Casino was renovated once again and it reopened on April 17, 2007 as Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino. The retail space has now been converted into the new Hollywood-themed âMiracle Mile Shopsâ. The Planet Hollywood restaurant, however, still exists at The Forum Shops at Caesars.
