Planet Hollywood pools reopen after 2-week closure

Updated June 28, 2023 - 5:22 pm

Two pools at a Las Vegas Strip resort have reopened after a two-week closure from the Southern Nevada Health District.

Health officials confirmed that the north and south pools at Planet Hollywood were permitted to reopen Tuesday following an inspection that day.

“SNHD staff determined that the required corrective actions involving lifeguards and other issues had been taken,” public information officer Dave Sheehan said in an email.

District officials shut down the pools at the mid-Strip resort, a Caesars Entertainment property, on June 12 after they found water chemistry violations and inattentive lifeguards on site. Caesars officials said at the time they were working with SNHD and directed guests to pools at neighboring properties, Horseshoe and Paris Las Vegas.

“We care about the health and safety of our guests,” Caesars officials said in a statement. “Planet Hollywood has addressed all issues presented to us by the Southern Nevada Health District. The pools at Planet Hollywood have now re-opened, and we apologize for the inconvenience caused to our guests.”
