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
My husband and I just love Vegas. The last time we went there I was 7months pregnant and decided to try out Palazzo at The Venetian. The room was rather good and the front desk attendant gave us complimentary late checkout till 2pm. We enjoyed both the hotel and the restaurant there. In the morning we decided to go to the pool till checkout ( we did not have any luggage with us). When we came back to take a shower, we couldn’t open our room door. The housekeeper was nearby and she told us that they checked us out without our consent and she called her manager. She told us that she cannot open the door and let us in to our room for quick shower as it is already ready and clean for the new guests to check in. I was furious as I could not go back to LA without taking a shower as it was even dangerous for pregnant to stay like that after pool for a long time. After some conversation she decided to open one of the uncleaned rooms and let me use the shower for five min only. It was the most disgusting thing that could happen to me, but I agreed as there wasn’t any other option. I took a shower really quick and when I was quickly drying my hair, she came back and asked us to leave the room and be half wet in that heavily conditioning hotel. No surprise I caught a cold really quick and even had to go to the urgent care when I was back to LA. This kind of service and attitude is just unacceptable for any kind of hotel especially for the 5 star one.
After this they asked me to write a review about my experience to them, which I did, but they didn’t even apologise. If I were them I would at least give complimentary free night in exchange to the totally ruined one.
All has been said in those reviews below, super luxury hotel, I got an upgrade to an awesome suite, 2 separated rooms. Also - what is the deal with the gym closing at 8pm? I know people don't come to Vegas to get healthier, but its not so difficult to put 2 treadmills in a card-protected room. Also, 51USD 'resort fees' which is...well...steep.
Regarding service - probably there is none if the hotel has 10000 rooms. Just know this and be prepared.
Food in the hotel - so so. Burger place advertised as 'the best in the US' or the 'best in town' is very mediocre. Open yelp and find the places with good food reviews - they are well worth it. Food on the Strip - expensive, famous places, but bad food overall. Look for the culinary gems that are NOT located on the Strip.
Stayed at the Palazzo for three days at the end of January 2019. Beautiful, very large room. The main problem is how fees are not clear up front. The resort fee $45/day) is mandatory but it’s for “services” that many guests won’t need: internet, local calls and the gym. Many phone plans give you unlimited calls and data. Note that there is no coffee maker in the room, no complimentary water. You pay for everything. I used the pool twice but was kicked out of the pool deck area after 10 minutes one day (at 3:45 p.m.) and after 30 minutes the next (around the same time). Very unfortunate given how beautiful the day was. I didn’t get to appreciate the hotel given the very restrictive times imposed for the pool. I would not recommend this hotel under the circumstances.
My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway, and loved every minute of it! The suite was wonderfully luxurious, with fantastic views. We also loved the property itself. Enjoyed the street performances, a gondola ride, and just walking along the canal looking at the shops. We also took full advantage of the variety of excellent restaurants.

The high light for my trip to the UK was the trooping of the color.The bookings were booked for us with no fuss Wow what a great parade.Hopefully I might get another trip to UK. hint hint. lol As my wife is handicapped', We certainly got excellent service from the ground handling staff.Looking forward to the next trip.
