This hotel defies description, and not in a good way. The Aladdin left me underwelmed. The Aladdin is a fairly recent hotel, having opened less than 5 years ago after they tore down the old hotel to build the new Aladdin. The entrance is on an awkward location, sort of hidden from the sidewalk. First, let me say that I enjoy walking through the Desert Passage, with its feeling of strolling through Morocco or some other exotic locale. Many of the restaurants are enjoyable, especially Commander’s Palace, the Spice Market Buffet, and PF Cheng’s. The theater is spacious, and the seating is comfortable. The staff is pleasant, eager to please, and seem to want to make your stay pleasurable.
