The off-Strip Palms offers guests some of the city's most spectacular views of Las Vegas, unique rooms, memorable nightlife venues and a bevy of dining options.
From a sky-high nightclub with a retractable roof to a poolside paradise, the Palms is a hotspot for the cool crowd -- and a playground for celebrities. The resort provides an array of well-appointed guestrooms with flat-screen TVs, minibars and safes as well as specialty suites with everything you'd ever need for a grand Vegas getaway.
In addition, the Palms boasts its 40-story Fantasy Tower, which houses a series of fantasy suites. From the mammoth and lush Celebrity Suite to the ultra hip G-Suite and the bowling alley-inclusive Kingpin Suite, the Palms' Fantasy Suites turn a regular vacation into one fit for a Vegas high roller. Other options include the hip-hop-themed Crib Suite, the bachelorette party-friendly Barbie Suite and the sensual Erotic Suite. Plus, there are one- and two-story Sky Villas near the top of the Fantasy Tower, showcasing opulence and one-of-a-kind amenities -- like a private cantilevered Jacuzzi pool overlooking the Strip.
In conjunction with the luxe accommodations, it's no wonder the stars are attracted to the Palms. The resort features great nightlife options, beginning with Ghostbar. Its open-air deck offers amazing 180-degree views of the city from 55 stories high. A significant player in Las Vegas' music world, the Palms is also home to the Pearl concert venue as well as The Studio, where major artists flock to record their newest hits. The resort's Moon Nightclub, at the top of the Fantasy Tower, is also part of the party circuit and makes the Palms the place to be seen -- while sophisticated bars like Scarlet and Social offer guests more refined fun.
Also tops at the Palms is the dining scene. Sky-high restaurants include chef Geno Bernardo's Nove Italiano, which serves Italian favorites and handmade pastas, as well as a spectacular view from the dining room. At chef Andre Rochat's Alizé, diners can enjoy similar floor-to-ceiling views along with a sophisticated French menu.
On the ground floor, the sleek N9NE Steak House has a sizzling atmosphere to match its succulent cuts of prime aged beef. Chocolat brings guests the sweetness of decadent crepes, chocolates and other desserts. Fast, casual dining choices at the resort include the 24 Seven Cafe (it also boasts a space inside called Fortunes, where you can order dim sum classics and Chinese favorites), the Bistro Buffet, the poolside Back Room Burger and a sizeable food court known as The Eatery.
If you're looking to relax, the Palms has a 20,000-square-foot spa boasting numerous services as well as the Kim Vo Salon, where you can get the latest cuts and colors for your hair. Outside, the revered Palms Pool provides a welcome reprieve from Vegas' heat with multiple pools, including two designed just for shallow lounging. And during the summer months, you don’t want to miss some of the most debauched pool parties in town.
If indoor fun is more your style, check out the 14-theater Brenden Theatres complex. There's plenty of gaming action to tempt you on the casino floor as well, including a Cantor Race & Sports Book with 93 betting carrels and eight poker tables.
And if all of this isn't enough, take a stroll through the Skytube (located in the food court) to the adjoining Palms Place property, where you'll have access to another hip lounge, a celebrity chef-helmed restaurant, a spa with a hammam and another enchanting pool area.
Indeed, with all of these offerings and the hip atmosphere, the Palms makes every guest feel like a celebrity.
