Set back from Flamingo Road, this sleek tower is connected to the Palms Casino Resort (where they shot the infamous Real World Las Vegas). Palms Place hits the midpoint of Vegas: it’s devoid of the perpetual cha-ching of slot machines and the screams of overactive roulette players — but it’s just a short walk to the adjoining casino when you’re ready for the action. The lobby sets the sexy, minimalist tone with sunken, buttery-soft leather sofas below and a strip of gold above. The philosophy of un-Vegas Vegas is driven home when guests enter one of the hotel’s 599 studios and suites — they’re slick, modern and just flashy enough, with nine-foot ceilings, hardwood and marble floors, sprawling marble bathrooms, and, for suites, views of the Strip or mountains out of floor-to-ceiling windows. The Palms Place pool is open year-round and also happens to be right next to Café 6, a favorite for hearty American dishes like the over-the-top Burn Your Face Off burger with pickled jalapeños, roasted poblano, habanero hot sauce, pepper jack cheese, and latin coleslaw. If you don’t want the sit-down experience, you can just order at the pool and chow down on healthy fare straight from your float.
In the Area
Enjoy killer views with the party people at The Palms’ Ghostbar. Need to escape the scene? Mount Charleston is an hour away and offers 12,000 vertical feet of hiking, biking, horseback riding and climbing. Or check out the Hoover Dam. Built more than 70 years ago, it’s still a wonder at 726 feet high, 1,244 feet long and 660 feet thick. If the tables aren’t treating you right, indulge in some retail therapy at the Las Vegas Premium Outlets, with upscale shops like Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, and Ted Baker.
How to Get There
Stay here with the family in late June 2018. Got room on the 26th floor. Quiet place away from the busy Strip. Free parking is a plus and the entire hotel is Non-smoking. Don't confuse this with the Palms casino resort which is a smoking facility. We would stay here a again for sure to make use of the kitchenette area.
I've stayed at this hotel many times. In fact, a good friend of mine owns property here so it's always nice to be in th same location as him when I come to visit.
Imagine my surprise when I used Airbnb to book my stay for a work conference for the week and the host asked for a cleaning fee for a service animal. Apparently, they are unaware of the laws regarding such. Even after I explained the laws, the booking company which lists through Airbnb, insisted on me paying the fee, regardless of the law.
The add insult to injury, when I showed for my stay the room had not been reserved and I had to deal with multiple parties to get resolution. It took multiple hours to get my name added to the room so that I could check-in.
I know most of this is not the Palms fault, it's the result of what I like to call the "inception factor", a dream within a dream within a dream, or more specifically a listing within a listing within a listing.
However, there is just too many parties involved to provide a positive experience. When a guest has an issue they have no idea who to call or get help from. There is a lot of blame shifting.
If it was my hotel I personally wouldn't want guests to have a poor experience when things are out of my control. I would rather control the guest experience end to end.
The other issue I had was with internet. For some odd reason the first day I was charged 6 times for internet!?! How does that even happen? Basic internet is free!
As for the room and such. It was nice. Same as I am used to everytime I have stayed at Palms Place. Staff are all nice. Shared spaces are clean. Parking is located next to the tower if you want to park yourself or valet is available and I think it's free. Just make sure to tip.
Very cheap minutes a way from the strip. On Monday they have a $5/6 dollar movie theater inside the casino. They have a yummy bbq buffet best in Vegas for very cheap price like $12 a person for club members. A nice co Ed spa and separate section. Very nice modern contemporary room and bathroom with jet tub and standing shower for cheap
This was a clean hotel room. It looks fancy on the outside but was pretty cheap on the inside. We had no complaints but it was definitely not luxury like advertised. The bed was fine but not amazing. The amenities were sufficient but we have stayed at better places. Clean but ok.
I can prepare my own food if I choose, hang out by a fairly private pool, not walk through noise or smoke, go away from the strip without the traffic issues, take a lyft to the strip for next to nothing and the suites are sweeeeet! Good restaruant on this side and the lounge bar is great for a nightcap - the front desk is amazing - I have made mistakes booking or needed things and they are authentically helpful.
