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
This has replaced The Wynn as my #2 on the strip. Aria remains my #1. The rooms at Palazzo are all suites - roughly the size of two basic hotel rooms. Each room has a large bathroom with shower, separate bath, and TV, an area with bed / large TV, and a lower level with couch, desk, table, and another TV. It was certainly more than one person needs in a room.
The pool is similar to The Wynn's - narrow, long, and really needs more chairs. You would have to get their quite early to get a good seat by the pool. It's nice, but crowded.
Numerous people at the business function commented that the layout of the hotel and casino were extremely confusing. I have to agree that this is one of the more difficult hotels to navigate - likely by design to keep guests from leaving.
No complaints about the staff. Everyone I interacted with was friendly and helpful.
The restaurant selection is plentiful - lots of Italian choices. We ended up eating at Yardbird twice. The chicken & biscuits and mac and cheese were amazing. Drinks at most restaurants / bars were the Vegas standard $12-18.
This was our second time at the Palazzo and we will always come back.
Right from the time of arrival the service is excellent. The bellhops and valet are very courteous and fast. The front desk staff is polite and offers good info on recommendations.
The resort is excellent with great shopping and restaurant options. The location on the Strip is also a huge plus as it is close to the Fashion Show Mall.
The basic rooms are suites and are modern, clean and well kept. The housekeeping staff is also very efficient and do a great job.
We try to always fit In a stay at the Palazzo when we can and will always be back. Highly recommend.
I stayed in room 40-733 and we had the best time. The room was lovely, everything that could be done was done, the restaurants were excellent, and the wife enjoyed the shopping. It is quite simply superb.
This review is based solely on Palazzo's customer service. I did not have the opportunity to stay here.
Early this month I had booked the Palazzo for 2 nights before venturing off to see the Grand Canyon. Long story short, we missed our flight and it just wasn't going to work out to travel for the 4 days, so we cancelled our trip. On our way home I called the Palazzo to cancel my reservation, thinking that I would have to at least pay for the 1st night but was hoping to get a refund for the 2nd night. They were so understanding about my situation that they refunded my 1st night also. Thank you Palazzo Resort!!
The hotel is simply amazing!! My experience from the moment I pulled up to the hotel the staff is courteous, enthusiastic and very helpful.They have so much to offer great restaurants, shopping mall, an extensive 5 acre pool deck and cabana area, gym/spa, conference rooms. The suites are very clean and well maintained. Housekeeping is spectacular! I stayed in a double queen suite on the the 32nd floor facing the strip and what a beautiful view day & night. If you want the grand view make sure you book your room from the the 30th floor and up it is a 52 story. I must say I was impressed. I will certainly be back for another stay.
