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
I loved my stay here. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, the casino and restaurants were nice and everyone was helpful and courteous. This is a sister property to Venetian, but is less busy. The bars might get a little busy when conventions are in town, but the games were very available.
We were me at the Check-in by a wonderful lady named Ben, she helped make the experience into a 5 star. Our suite was on the 18th Floor with a wonderful view of the many pools, Treasure Island across the street and much more. Our room was spacious and immaculate. My only criticism is the door to the room closes very strongly so if you have children be careful. The pool was very nice and the spa was very warm and inviting. At the end of the hotel on the outside is Walgreens which is quite convenient.
Everything is top notch at this casino. If you're a gambler, get yourself a host and you will be treated very well. Their VIP room including VIP check-in and check-out is exceptional. The Grand Lux restaurant is part of the Cheese Factory group of companies, so the food is delicious, hot and the portions are very large. No complaints at all about my stay at Palazzo!
