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
We are seven star at harrahs but had family staying at this resort so wanted to stay in same hotel.
Not never been to such a bad resort and we have been all over the world. Not only was the bed horrid as we needed a noon check out and he demanded a $50 fee for it. (We had booked a sightseeing flight and needed the extra hour so we paid it. Along with the high room rate. Also if I had wanted a
Come from the mini bar it would have been $35.00
Lastly the penny restaurant for breakfast and I ordered chicken fried steak and eggs. I got a beef fried steak and when I asked was told that is what they consider chicken. As we took our kids there did not want to be embarrassed by sending it back so just did not eat it
I will never stay there and willl recommend to all our friends who gamble to stay away when in vegas
We stayed 3 nights in room 11202, a corner king junior suite. The only positive thing I can say about the experience is that the view was absolutely amazing! As soon as we came in the room we noticed that the carpet had obviously not been vacuumed because there was crap all over it and filth around the toilet & hair all over the floor in the bathroom. It was obvious that, other than the bed being made, nothing was done in this room! Upon closer inspection we found a huge hole in our sheets and dust almost a 1/4” thick on all the window sills in the bathroom. Under the bathroom counter there was broken glass! When you use the shower you were standing in filthy standing water that stayed there for an hour after you got out! The next day when we got back to our room the bathtub had hair in it and when you use the shower you were standing and filthy standing water that stayed there for an hour after you got out! The next day when we got back to our room late afternoon they had come in and made the bed but didn’t bother to take our dirty glasses and replace them with new ones. They had not swept the floor or cleaned the shower or any of the other basic things that they should’ve done. When I stopped one of the maids in the hall later that evening and asked for glasses and explain that we didn’t get any she seemed offended but begrudgingly gave us two! We had a late flight out on Thursday and called down to ask if we could possibly have a late check out and they offered two hours for an additional $40. We declined and left. I also have to mention that we had other people from our company staying at the Palms as well and their experience was equally as bad. So much so that they changed rooms on the first night and ended up with an equally bad room the second time around… Same issues as ours with standing water in the shower and filth. We would never stay at this hotel again and certainly never recommend it to anyone we know.
Just a review of the casino floor and restaurants, but it is a really great casino. The renovations gave this place a clean, fun vibe and I loved it.
We had pizza at Side Piece (can't recommend enough -- excellent).
Just a good place. Will try and stay here next time out.
