The Palms Casino Resort
What We Love
- Some of the city’s best clubs, bars and restaurants are on-site
- The protruding glass floor at Ghostbar, 55 stories over Vegas
- Getting hot and steamy at the co-ed hammam in the Drift Spa
- The young, hot, carefree crowd
- Easy in-and-out self-parking, to avoid the valet waits
What To Know
- The Palms is not on the Vegas Strip; it’s about a mile and a half away, a $15 cab ride or a 25-minute walk
- Palms Pool is open only from mid-March to early November; the daytime scene is a bit lacking without the poolside fun
- The Palms Casino Resort is about the party scene; if you want an occasional respite, check out the neighboring Palms Place (which has a pool that's open year-round)
- Free WiFi
- Parking On Site
It’s all about classic hedonism at the Palms Las Vegas: nightlife, gambling, pool parties, and swanky guest rooms for more after-hours fun. Within the Palms enclave, the Fantasy Tower flaunts a cool, contemporary feel to suit the tastes of its young and stylish party-hard crowds, perfect for hosting the true “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” experience—without those chain-smoking slot-hoggers. The menu at Drift Spa, one of the resort’s best features, runs the full gamut of pampering indulgences. The single and adventurous should check out the co-ed hammam for easing tensions built up after hours spent on the game floor.
In the Area
While the Palms attracts a younger crowd than most Vegas resorts, it’s worth the drive (or walk) to the Strip, where most of the action takes place. For a little retro fun, tell your taxi to drop you off at the Pinball Hall of Fame, home to the world’s largest collection of machines, or head to the Neon Boneyard, the final resting place of the city’s glittering signs. Need to escape the Vegas scene? The Hoover Dam, built more than 70 years ago 30 miles outside the city, remains a bucket-list attraction. The serene natural trails through Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area also feel worlds away from the Vegas gimmicks. Practice your camera settings for closeups of tarantulas and scorpions.
How to Get There
A friend of mine booked the property and enjoyed my stay. Rooms are good sized, clean and modern. It has something for everyone except poker players. The pool is veing remodeled so it was quite a hike to the Palms Place pool.
Much improved and will come back.
Was amazing and had a good time, will definatly go back to this hotel. Everything was close and the casino was great. There was no pool in thus hotel but you could use the pool in the palms resort which was only next door and you didn't even have to walk outside since they are connected. A short uber ride to the strip that cost only $6 bucks. Buffet was great and many different seletions.
Large hotel off the strip. Shuttles run to the strip until 8 PM. After that, you are on your own. The AYCE restaurant is the best part of this hotel. Good food, normal prices. Breakfast was $12, lunch $15, dinner $17 for all you can eat. The switch from breakfast to lunch at 4 pm. The lounge is open to hotel guest from 8-9PM free of charge, but they won't let you in until 8:30 PM. (!?) Uber was $8 from the strip. Beds were the best ever!
The building is under construction but it didn't impede the experience at all. In fact, it was fun to watch them out our Ivory tower window. The main pool is still closed.
Just spent 3 nights at the Palms. Had a great time. It’s like the strip 10 years ago; free valet parking, blackjack with no continuous shuffling shoes, reasonable buffet prices without huge lines. Free drinks when you play video poker.
Place is being remodeled but in good shape now.
Lyft to the strip is under $10 so no trouble getting there when you need to go.
Room was very nice.
I stayed at the Palms for 1 night in the Ivory Tower after a long day of traveling. I was extremely pleased at the level of customer service I received as soon as I pulled up. A young Asian valet worker made sure I was taken care of and had the bellhop take my bags. Everytime I neeed something from the front desk they were eager to do whatever I needed. The room was very nice on the 9th floor facing the street. Very nice and I would recommend this hotel.
