Oh Shucks, Planet Hollywood Hotels to Open in China, Panama and Qatar First
Remember back in September when we cried tears of joy after hearing that Wyndham Hotels would be rolling out more Planet Hollywood Hotels? Our beloved early 90s movie-themed hotel would now be offered to us outside of Vegas.
We eagerly began jotting down a few possible trips--Planet Hollywood Miami, Planet Hollywood New York, Planet Hollywood Hollywood (duh) and Planet Hollywood London.
So imagine how utterly gutted we were when we found out that the first Planet Hollywood hotels would open, not here in America, but in China, Panama and Qatar. Why, god why?
USA Today reports:
Scheduled to open in 2014, the Planet Hollywood Hotel Entertainment City in Qatar will feature about 300 rooms. The 309-room Planet Hollywood Hotel in Panama City will open in the city's financial district in 2014.
The proposed 350-room Planet Hollywood Hotel in Boao will become part of a resort complex currently under development in China's Hainan Island that will feature retail shops and entertainment venues.
Sigh. If you love something set it free, and if it opens in the U.S. then it's meant to be. We'll wait forever Planet Hollywood, we will!
