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
We stayed here one night because we were in town for a show and the show was at The Palms Casino Resort. The Palms Place hotel is part of the resort but is a separate tower on the same grounds. The great thing about the Palms Place is that you do not have to walk through a seedy casino to get places in the tower. It does feel more like a boutique hotel - small lobby area and no casino however it has kind of a "miami vice" feel - dated and definitely too dark. There was only 2 agents checking in guests so it took about 20 minutes plus it was 5 PM and we were told the housekeepers were still vacuuming so we had to take a room on a much lower floor (10) than we had originally booked (53). Our room was a 1 bedroom suite but there was just a half wall separating the bedroom from the living room which was not disclosed to us at booking. There was a kitchen but it looked like it had taken a beating and needed some help. The room was very dark and in the bedroom the lamps which were the only light source were entirely encased in big pink transparent bubbles so our room was pink. Not a good look.
The worst part was the street noise - it was horrendously loud. Seriously, felt like we were next to the interstate - cars at all house, 3 police cars blasting sirens, 1 fire engine, 1 car alarm for about 15 minutes, etc - all between midnight and 7. VERY LOUD - must get a room at least above the 20th floor.
We didn't like the dining options at the resort and wanted to try Trevi at Caesar's (a great choice). It was very busy in town so we decided to walk as we could see Caesar's from The Palms - took 30 minutes each way. Most areas off the strip are pretty seedy and this area was no exception - passed over the 15 on a covered bridge and had to dodge a few people in sleeping bags.....
So in all, OK hotel, too far off the strip, too loud at low rooms, dated rooms, and average dining options.
Standard rooms were OK. We didn't expect to get a sun tan in December but wanted to sit the pool and there wasn't one. You had to walk about ten minutes to the sister resort past construction/construction workers and temporary walls, into a garage and up and down elevators and through the spa. All that being said the pool at the other resort was beautiful, but its hours were erratic and some days not open at all with no prior notice. The Palms also sent us on this same walk to the use the Gym. All of this should have been explained at booking, nothing was said. Nothing was said at check in either, so it was a nasty surprise to find this out on your own. Also there was a big construction site outside so there will not be any pool there anytime soon. There were also other restaurants that were not open.
If your are a regular LAS VEGAS visitor like myself, The Palms Place HI-Rise Suites is the place to STAY. Go to AIRBNB and look for TYLER and rent his condo. It's quite..bed is comfortable, clean, and you will love the bathroom. This place has it's own kitchen area with refrigerator, stove, microwave etc. He's a great host and communicates timely. It's very modern, and the images shown on AIRBNB is exactly how it looks in person. Price is affordable and fees are decent. Unlike these other hotels on the strip, they charge for resort fee, parking, etc. This location does not charge for parking and it's very convenient. Even if you don't have a vehicle, there's taxi, lyft, uber... The major plus for me, is that once you park your car,, you go into the hotel.. walk in the elevator ... not like the other places you go through the stress of having to find what tower your elevator is on.. etc.. LIKE I said.. I recommend this place, but most return VEGAS visitors.. understands why it's best to say away from the strip from time to time..
If you are looking for a Vegas hotel that has more of a boutique feel this a great spot. Hotel is off strip so you will have to walk or drive over to the strip. This is the residential wing of the Palms Hotel so it's a lot quieter and calmer then some of the other hotel casinos. The room was spacious with a kitchenette and an amazing bathroom. Limited amenities, no mini bar. Only one lobby bar that closes early but your attached to the Palm Hotel and Casino so you can just walk over there for the action. Definitely would stay again.
I highly recommended this place for long poker stays in Vegas.. try booking a place here well in advance through Air BnB or contact them directly.. ordering room service everyday can be a bit unhealthy for us for I recommend getting your own groceries or ordering in , eating out basically mixing it up.. there’s a food court in the hotel as well... can always watch a movie in the In-Hotel Theatre next to the food court on the casino floor... this is just a u turn away from rio... I walked it once when there was no sun otherwise too hot to walk it , I recommend Uber over renting a car as you can waste a lot of time finding parking!! Perfect place to stay if you’re on the grind for poker or any other sport which requires you to spend a long time in Vegas! oh and that view <3 I wish I could stay here forever! #Fingerscrossed
