The all-suite Palazzo sets itself apart with a winning blend of Hollywood style and European service. And, at 50 stories, it’s also one of the tallest resorts in Las Vegas. Connected to its sister resort, The Venetian, by a long corridor of high-end shopping and dining, The Palazzo has a museum-style lobby whose immense, airy atrium has a ring of soaring gold columns surrounding an ornate central fountain, all under a glass dome. Upstairs, suites are spacious with mod cons like flatscreen TVs and remote-controlled Roman shades and curtains. Décor skews sexy and modern (think red chaise lounges, padded ivory headboards, and delicate blown-glass decorative bowls), while marble bathrooms spoil with soaking tubs and his-and-hers sinks. The Palazzo’s high-end dining options are steps away, with restaurants by boldface names like Emeril Lagasse, Mario Batali, and Wolfgang Puck. At the huge outdoor pool area, regal palms, marble columns, and a giant sundeck await. There are seven solar-heated swimming pools and four hot tubs to play in (though not all are open year-round). Back inside, The Palazzo’s massive casino features the usual mix of high-limit table games and slot and video poker machines but, using a state-of-the-art ventilation system and restricting smoking to only 50 percent of its space, it makes the gaming experience eminently breathable. When you’re ready to relax, visit the Canyon Ranch SpaClub, which offers classes like yoga and Pilates as well as a full range of massage, facial, and body treatments.
In the Area
Take your plastic for a spin through the more than 60 boutiques at the Grand Canal Shoppes. Designers featured include Vegas staples like Jimmy Choo, Burberry and Coach, and also Vegas virgins like Chloe, Christian Louboutin and Diane von Furstenberg, who made their Sin City store debuts here — there’s also an 85,000-square-foot Barneys New York. If you’re more of an outdoorsy type, hit the trails early at Red Rock Canyon National Park, where visitors can hike, climb and bike the rock formations. When hunger strikes, book a table at LAVO, a celeb favorite from the creators of TAO. The terrace, available for dinner, cocktails or private parties, offers one of the best après-dark Strip views around, while the plush lounge inside is one of the town’s sexiest. Dress to impress.
How to Get There
The Palazzo goes the extra steps to make you feel special while you are staying at the hotel. We were here for my son's wedding. We also stayed at the MGM Grand and I would certainly recommend the Palazzo over the MGM Grand
Rooms, Casino, Restaurants and everything is first class including the experience! The staff is totally dedicated to make your experience more enjoyable. Housekeeping keep the rooms exceptionally clean and were respective of our privacy.
The room was great, the overall facility - very nice and the service was mostly excellent.
However, I was totally annoyed by the improper practice of charging insanely high fees (by the pound!) for collecting personal packages delivered to the hotel. I do understand it would make sense to charge a handling fee when commercial packages are delivered to conference attendees but personal packages??? This is totally uncalled for.
I will note however that the front desk supervisor agreed to remove this fee from my bill, not before I had to argue over this. He claimed that this is a FedEx charge but the FedEx office specifically noted that this is a hotel charge and even allowed me to charge it to my room. I would have not given the Palazzo a 4-star rating if they would have insisted on adhering to this policy. On the other hand, if this policy did not exist at all, I would have given it a 5-star rating.
A 5 star hotel, charging $400 per night, should drop this policy right away.
If you are charged - argue.
