Two more casino resorts are preparing to open new hotel towers, less than two weeks after the debut of the 4,000-room Aria casino-hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.

The 1,201-room PH Towers at the Planet Hollywood Resort, and the 374-room HRH Tower at the Hard Rock Hotel are set to open Monday.

Executives at the two properties say they're aiming to please high-end guests.

Planet Hollywood Resort President Bill Feather says rooms in the 52-story PH tower on the Las Vegas Strip are for the "upscale customer who wants to enjoy an all-suite product."

Hard Rock Hotel chief Randy Kwasniewski says the HRH tower on Harmon Avenue is part of a $750 million expansion aimed at attracting customers looking for a "boutique experience."

Seven of the Hard Rock rooms are penthouse suites, and eight will be spa villas.
