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
We have stayed three times at this hotel now. Can’t fault it. The rooms are warm, comfortable and clean. The view from your bedroom window is stunning, overlooking the beach. Five minutes walk into town. It is worth eating in the restaurant, the food is first class. Average of £20 for three courses and free bottle of wine if two people dine in, at the moment. Stunning views.
Unless something changes, do not expect to be treated as an IHG VIP at the Palazzo.
I entered the VIP area to register for our week long stay, only to be turned away to the IHG desk. As a Spire Ambassador Elite member I expected some perks but, I was sadly mistaken. You will get nothing, zero, nada, zilch,.... Not even your guaranteed Ambassador room upgrade. So far I am also showing zero reward points on IHG account. It states “unqualified stay”????
Yes, it’s a nice resort casino but, after the check-in and check-out, we are really disappointed.
We were at the Venetian in July and our experience was completely the opposite. Treated very well and comped very well after spending less time and money at the craps table. Not sure what the hell happened when you walk down the hall to the other part of the same hotel?!
Vegas hotels are always cheap for the facilities they provide!! This is one of them . Loved the room, damn it was spacious . Honestly speaking, we never go for such luxurious hotels as they are extremely costly and we are always looking forward to getting out of the room and not staying in and relaxing. Since, the luxurious hotels in vegas are not that expensive compared to 2.5 or 3 star hotels, we decided to stay in palazzo. Boy, was it a good decision! Our room was on one of the top floors and view was amazing. This resort actually created a desire in us to stay back and relax, maybe have a bath in the ultra luxurious bathroom. I felt super rich and pampered, like one of young and rich couples/celebrities shown in movies who stay in such resorts for honeymoon( 4 years down so it wasn't a honeymoon ;) ).
Although we enjoyed our stay, I would have enjoyed more if there was complimentary breakfast. Too expensive to order some so we simply had our breakfast in some other places far cheaper and better in the vegas strip.
I liked the way it was connected to the Venetian and it felt nice to just gamble in our own hotel rather than roaming and searching for other decent ones.
Hope the review was helpful for fellow gamblers ! :D
I've stayed at many hotels on the strip (Aria, Caesars, Venetian...) and this is by far my favorite. Large rooms, with a separate living room a few steps down from the bedroom. Huge bathrooms with jacuzzi tubs, separate walk in shower, vanity. Definitely request a room on a high floor with a view of the strip... its amazing.
As for the rest of the hotel, its incredible. The attention to detail and the unrestrained opulence feeling is really spectacular. You literally never have to leave the confines of the hotel if you dont want to. Great shopping and even better food. The only other hotel that rivals the amenities is Caesars.
For the bad points, the pool is not the best (but the cabanas are amazing) and if you look really closely at the decor, you'll start to notice a bit of wear and tear... but the service and fun you'll have will greatly overshadow any negativity.
This was one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in! It has everything you could possibly think of! The rooms are superb! Wonderful restrooms! The pools were amazing! It even has a mall inside of the hotel!
