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
Excellent location, ambience and facilities. Several pools, one of which is located somewhere around 10th floor open until 10 PM.
Small negatives that I noticed was the lack of a water kettle and in-room slippers.
We arrived early, an immediate room access was provided for a 48th floor suite with an absolutely killer view. The corridors and room were absolutely immaculate!
The value is clearly here at the Palazzo!
Polite, helpful, professional and efficient staff.
Our room was a nice two ambient suite with views to the mountains. Huge bathroom and nice bed and sofas. All the common areas are very well designed. The pool area is classic but ample and not crowded. Service everywhere is done with high standards.
I have been to Vegas almost a dozen times and this is by far my favorite hotel. The suites are incredible! I had a stunning view of the mountains and lower end of the strip. It was beautiful. The room was enormous! Dining room table for 2, large couch, giant bed and 3 tvs! The bathroom vanity was a girls dream. I loved being so close to the sands convention center (was there for a conference) but also all the great shops at the Venetian. Its all connected and a Walgreen's is right outside to pick up booze and food for the room. Palazzo gets my vote hands down!
My husband and I flew in for a weekend trip to celebrate my birthday. On previous trips we have stayed at the Venetian. The Palazzo is just as gorgeous and we had a generous-sized suite that had been kept in immaculate condition.
My gripe though is with housekeeping and room service. I called housekeeping on the first morning of our stay to request a toothbrush as I’d forgotten to pack mine and an extra towel.. I called back after waiting for nearly an hour and finally had the items delivered at about an hour and fifteen after the original request. That evening, we opted for room service.. they did tell us that there was a delay in food orders being sent up, but since we were ordering just coffee and some pastries they said it would be quick. Well, our order came up over an hour later and I had already fallen asleep - the plan was to get caffeinated and head back down to do some more shopping!
I expected both housekeeping and room service to be a bit more efficient since we are here during off-season. I would’ve appreciated a call telling us of the delay in service.. rather than waiting and delaying plans.
