“Fun hotel, good nightlife”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2011

Trendy hotel with great nightlife. Beautiful pool. Only downside is that it isn't on the Strip.

Spent one night here with a reservation for their GTL package. Didn't take too much advantage of it since I was in and out of the hotel, but I loved the room that they gave me. It was a Superior Room on the corner of one of their high floors. It was very spacious and had a panoramic view of the Strip. Noise levels weren't much of a worry due to the location of my room. I had to come back the next day because I had forgotten my iPod charger in the room. The staff was very helpful with locating it and returning it to me. I would definitely consider coming back here to fully experience what the hotel has to offer.

Room Tip: Higher floors provide a better view of The Strip, and request a corner room if possible.

I would say for a vegas hotel and casino its just okay. The website says luxury room, but I would say a double tree room is probably nicer. The bed and pillows were comfortable. We ate the breakfast buffet which was a good deal at about $6 if you sign up for their palyers club card. We ate the dinner buffet one night and I would pass on eating it again. The casino floor is very small compared to any other casino floor on the strip. They may have 43 black jack tables but only around 6 were open. We visited during the national finals rodeo and they sponsered one of the roping events. Yet we could only find one tv in one bar that was actually playing it. So if you are going specifically during this time skip the Palms. Somthing new for us the year was the "Resort fee" of $16/day the hotel said this covered the valet and concierge service as well as the $15 drink cards we had been given each day. This was a little annoying considering we didn't have a car and when we did have a question the concierge could have helped us with they were not there. Since we booked our flight and hotel together and this was not disclosed and it really should be since this fee adds up per day. Also internet was not free it was also $15/ day to connect. If you want the "vegas" experience I would stay at Cesars,MGM, or Mandalay Bay. The service and staff were nice and welcoming.

Dear North Liberty Guest,

Thank you for sharing your recent visit to the Palms Casino Resort. It is regrettable to learn of your lackluster experience with us. We are sorry to hear of your discontentment with the resort fee, but it has become a standard Las Vegas resort practice, and you will find the same practices at most of the resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. However, your constructive feedback is greatly appreciated as we recognize that this feedback is essential to the survival of our operation. Thank you again, and we hope that you are enjoying this wonderful holiday season with your loved ones.

Best Regards,
Mark Carlson

The palms is an amazing place to stay, but the staff makes all the difference in the world. The first person you meet can make or break your stay, and Elda at the palms is amazing. From the moment I walked up to the counter, she changed my stay from start to finish!!! With the most pleasant attitude and helpfulness, she made the entire stay memorable. Most people get online to complain, but when you meet someone like this, it's worth sharing it with everyone!!!! Thanks again.

Room Tip: Ask Elda, she knows!!!

When we checked in they offered to upgrade our double room to a king for $60. The only thing was, we had prepaid for a king room. Only after we showed our email confirmation did they change our room. When we got to the room the bathroom floor was dirty- specifically around the toilet. We called and asked to speak to a manager to provide feedback and were only connected to the front desk. Their response was the king is only based on availability and not guaranteed. But why is it available for $60? The maid did come by after calling housekeeping but In summary a rotten first impression.

Dear Hotelier,

We are extremely sorry for the apparent misunderstanding. The offer that the front desk agent presented to you was either an upgrade to a room in our newer tower with a king size bed, or an upgrade to a larger suite with a king size bed. The bed type and smoking preference of a room are requests attached to reservations, but we do our very best to accommodate everyone. We sincerely apologize that you did not receive the room that you reserved. Hopefully we will have another opportunity to provide a remedy and the winning guest service that the Palms has become known for. Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to being in contact in the future. We hope that you are having a wonderful holiday season!

Mark Carlson

We got a deal, otherwise I wouldn't normally stay in a hotel known for its night clubs. The room was clean and stylish without being garish. There's a Coffee Bean in the lobby which I like. The pool has this fake sand around it that is the same stuff they put in ashtrays, which gave me the feeling of being a cigarette butt smoldering in a giant ashtray. Coming back late in the evening we had to fight our way through velvet roped queues to get to the elevator up to our room. Anyone over 45 would feel weird here at night.

Room Tip: Mirrored shades for scoping out the boobie implantius.

As much as the rooms are good and beds are comfortable be prepaid to pay, pay and pay. First off out a group of five of us staying there no two people had the same rate. Once we checked in we learned about all the other charges such as the “resort fee” that is $15 plus tax per day makes it $16.80. When I asked what it was for I was told it was free parking. All of Las Vegas has always had free parking, what a scam. We then were told that they would be pre authorizing and hold $100 per day for “incidentals”. (I wonder how much interest they earn on that.) Next came the $15 per day for internet usage and $25 per day should you wish to use the exercise facilities. They did provide some coupons for drinks in the bar but that was a joke. Depending on who was at the bar the drink prices changed. Some of our group got drink coupons worth $20 and others got drink coupons worth $15, and if you got a drink that was less than the coupon they kept the difference. Don’t plan on using the ATM’s they charge $4.99 per transaction, what a rip and should be a crime.
On check-out a couple in the group and charges for things that weren’t theirs and other at the counter were having the same problem. As a general rule staff attitude was poor. You would think in this economy finding the employees with a good attitude would be easy. As most of us know employee attitude is a reflection of management.
I spent the last 20 years living in Nevada with relatives working in major resort casinos, this is not the place. I have stayed at the best places in Vegas and this is not it. They will charge you for everything and there is nothing special here.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.
