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
- Handicap Accessible
- 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
Came here for a dayclub event to see Marshmellow. It was so crowded we could barely move and there was no room to get in the pool. Drinks prices were sky high. A small beer was $13! It felt highly pretentious and just not worth the money.
The room was updated- but the good qualities end there. Room service was horrible, asked for a vegetarian pasta dish- they put meat in it. And then asked if we could get a microwave or there's any way they can heat up some cold soup that we ordered and they said no. Paid hundreds for the room service items and was sorely disappointed. Also, took forever to get anything like towels.
The MOST annoying this was that you could hear the music from KAOS, their nightclub from our room, all. night. long. Good luck getting any sleep!
The $600 mil renovation last year basically resulted in a new property. The nightclub, Kaos, is on par with Encore or anything else in the city with a great crowd (young, high end but not too snobbish/high end like XS) - it functions both as a day club and nightclub. The renovated rooms are fantastic, feel completely new with high end finishes and nice views of the strip. At this resort, you get a high end experience without the price gouging of Wynn/Encore and the Caesar's and MGM properties. The lines to get in the clubs are not as obnoxious, the covers are lower, the room prices are lower - but you are getting at least 90 percent of the experience you get at those places. They also have budget food here, a decent food court and a buffet that provides all the options but is a fraction of the price of others on par with it in Vegas. Maybe because it is owned by Station Casinos and not the big 3, you don't feel the intense corporate squeezing of your pocketbook here that you do elsewhere in the city rn. A key example - free parking, free valet. If you are at all price conscious this is the best value in Las Vegas at this time.
This place has gone down hill, and I was really disappointed by my entire experience there. I’ve stayed here several times over the last 8-10yrs and was always fairly happy with my stay, despite the high resort fee.
Check-in took awhile even though there were not a lot of people checking in.
Despite some recent updates the overall condition of the hotel isn’t great. The hall smelled strongly of damp and cleaner, and the carpet showed stains throughout.
The door appeared to be recently painted, but it was badly done.
Updates in the bathroom were also not well thought out. You have to stand in the shower to turn it on, so you will get hit with a blast of cold water. The new tile and glass didn’t look very nice because they were next to a countertop and mirror that had seen better days. Add this to sink that was slow to drain and a toilet that didn’t flush and the overall bathroom was a miss.
The sleeping area was also a combination of old and new. The new graphics on the wall don’t really go with the dark worn furniture and peeling wall paper. I will Day that the beds were comfy and the room was fairly clean.
Another issue was that they had an event at the pool one night and the next day the pool opened late or maybe not at all l didn’t go back.
Overall I was not happy with my stay, and I will not be back.
I love the new look of Palms- well done! Plenty to do at New Palms.
Several new restaurants and bars opened. I like the lighting and decor. great customer service at check in
The rooms have been renovated
