“Hard Rock is better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2005

I’m a huge fan of the Hard Rock Hotel, but we decided to give The Palms a try on one of our all-girls trips to Vegas last year because of its reputation. This place had some positives and negatives.

Positives—the rooms are simply gorgeous. Understated elegance. That is the main reason I give this place an above average rating. Beds were unbelievably comfy, bathroom was beautiful and spacious with some great toiletries. Also, since The Palms is a smaller property, there is a more intimate feel to it. Easy walk to the pool, casino, restaurants, etc. The ghostbar is a blast, be sure to check it out, but the cover charge is a little ridiculous if you ask me.

Negatives—the pool stinks. It is small and there is an unfriendly vibe. I’m used to the Hard Rock, where you hang out in the pool with a drink in your hand and make friends you wind up meeting up with again later that night! This pool scene just wasn’t any fun at all. Their 24-hour café wasn’t too great either. Head to the food court instead, you’re better off with a slice of pizza.

Overall, the clientele and staff at the Hard Rock are just more fun and down-to-earth, but just as hot! I’ll visit The Palms for their clubs and restaurants (I really want to try N9NE!), but I most likely will not stay there again.

Stayed here over the New Year period and bumped into Maroon 5!
That makes it an awesome stay in my book!

I just came back from Vegas and I stayed at The Palms for one night and at the Paris for two nights. Check in at the palms was a great ...check out was very fast too. The casino was kinda lonely from 1pm to around 8pm...but the then the place was full! It took us like a hour and a half to get into Rain which was totally worth going to. The staff was really friendly and nice. I would go again for the weekend only.

Stayed at the Palms part of Thanksgiving weekend and it more than met all our expectations. Everyone we encountered working there was friendly and helpful. However, we did not do the club scene there. We drove in from Southern California and it was easy to find, parking in and out is easy, check in and out was quick and efficient. We like being a little way from the strip, so if you want to be on the strip, this would not be the hotel for you. The room and bathroom were very clean. It is true, the beds and the linens are the best I have encountered in a hotel, period. The food court was nice to have, we had nice breakfasts in the coffee shop (crunchy french toast was awesome!) and enjoyed the Mexican restuarant. We were on the 24th floor facing North and the view was terrific. Oh yeah, believe it or not, we don't gamble, so did not use the casino, so have no idea how it compares to others. We would definitely go back.

The Palms is nearly perfect! Lively casino, every restaurant and entertainment option you can imagine, and the best beds and linens I have ever experienced! Some of the reviews on this site seem a little one-sided and the Palms deserves nothing but 5-star ratings. I was extremely impressed with every aspect. Check-in was great and the overall staff is the friendliest in Vegas. Will definately return and will be a loyasl and pleased customer for life! Best joint in Vegas!

I stayed here mid-week in mid-November 2004. Check in and out went easily and quickly. The room itself was nice; call it upper-level Westin caliber. Bathroom spacious with cool lights that started dim, then got brighter (good for middle of the night trips).

Design of the hotel was great, not gaudy as apparently some reviewers are looking for. Spa was good, good facilities (steam room, sauna, that shower that dumps water on you thing, jacuzzi, the usual gym equipment). Unfortunately, it was too chilly to enjoy the pool, but it looked nicely done.

Went to the Ghostbar. Nice place, but in the end, it is just a nice bar, so the cover charge is a little silly. It's not like a huge club with light show or band or anything (not that it has to be, just that that's the type of place I would expect a cover). Also ate at Little Buddha which had a phenomenal interior, and pretty dang good food (although the menu was not quite as adventurous as I had hoped). If you stay at the Palms, and eat elsewhere, at least have a drink, or even just poke your head into Little Buddha.

I gave this four stars, keeping in mind what it is: a trendy hotel off the Las Vegas strip. It’s no Ritz, nor did I expect it to be.

I have stayed at most of the Las Vegas hotels. Overall I enjoyed my stay. The room was average but nice. The bed/pillows better than most Vegas hotels. The casino was very average. The steak house and french restaurant Alize (located on the roof of the Palms) were very good, though a bit expensive. Nice spa, great massages for the price. The nightclub rain and the ghost bar were fun for the 21 to 35 crowd. Location of the hotel a minus. The pool is average at best, but with a cool young crowd.
