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
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
If we have known we would not have stayed at the Palms Place. Worst night ever, our adjacent room neighbor was smoking marijuana, and the smell was entering our room.
The smell of marijuana was making my wife and myself sick. We made a phone called and informed the front desk and nothing was done. After waiting for 15 minutes for a response and putting a towel underneath the doorway. This did not help with the smell of marijuana entering our room. We had to quickly pack and go to the lobby. While we were in the lobby, there was no security at the entrance to the elevator. My wife was so upset, when she saw the front desk manager Sharee Hall, my wife approached Sharee. My wife explained to Sharee of the smell of marijuana. Sharee said that smoking weed was allowed. When we heard that smoking marijuana was allowed, we demanded a full refund, and we left the hotel. WE WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN.
From valet parking to check-in to waiters and waitresses in the numerous restaurants and the staff at the Pearl showroom, all were as courteous and professional as possible. Even the housekeepers were professional and gracious. The room was large, comfortable and an excellent sized bathroom as well.
We stayed in a private owner suite and it needed some work and attention. Biggest negative was that we could hear the party at KAOS (Palms pool) both day and all three nights. I would not choose a strip view in the future.
We enjoyed being off the strip and loved the pool and restaurants. Everyone working there was kind and friendly!
