My husband and I came to Vegas this past weekend (July 18-20, 2014) for a couples weekend. We booked through Southwest Vacations, something I'm not likely to do again, but that's another story for another time. We arrived at the Venetian (the hotel we originally booked) pretty early on Friday-around 10:30am because we had no idea what time check-in was. The person checking us asked if we wanted to upgrade to the Prestige at the Palazzo package for an additional $100/night. We decided that we would, and he began to search for available rooms. Thankfully there was one because we'd just had our luggage taken by the valet and it contained some refrigerated items that we wanted to stow away as soon as possible.
Which leads me to my first con: the only refrigerator in the suite was the stocked mini bar. I travel with refrigerated items and really need to keep a few of the things I bring cold. So, my husband and I went and bought a soft sided cooler to keep my items in. I was really surprised that there wasn't a fridge in the room. Or a coffeemaker. But, I travel with my own cold brew coffee, so it wasn't a terrible inconvenience. If you're a coffee drinker, this will be an inconvenience to you.
Next con: We could only find one restaurant on the property that served breakfast before 8am, the Grand Lux Cafe. When you upgrade to the Prestige at the Palazzo package, there is a complimentary Continental breakfast included. But since I don't eat wheat, this was not an option for me. There may have been more breakfast options, but the Concierge desk doesn't open until 8am, so we couldn't ask.
On to the good stuff: the suites are AMAZING! We stayed in a Luxury King suite, and I have to say, it was perfect! Nice and roomy, but still felt comfy and cozy. It has a nice full length mirror just outside the bathroom, which is nice to have so you can check how you look before you go out for the evening. I loved that the shower was separate from the tub, and the toilet had its own room. There is also a lovely vanity, complete with a lighted makeup mirror, a small box of q-tips and other beauty related items, and a hair dryer.
The bedroom was really nice and my husband and I slept beautifully each night.There is a lighted closet in the bedroom that has some really nice quality hangers, an iron/ironing board, in room safe, and a robe and slippers for two people. The living area was really nice for relaxing and reading, but we didn't use it too much, except for when we were deciding which shows to see and which restaurants to eat in. There were some nice magazine/guides on the table which made things a bit easier.
This is also where the mini bar and other foods are that the hotel will charge you outrageous amounts for if you take any of them. I was tempted a time or two, but knowing how much each item is, was a BIG deterrent.
We had what I'll call a split view - we could see part of the south end of the Strip to our left, and the mountains to the right. It was quite nice.
As I mentioned before, we took advantage of the Prestige at the Palazzo package. This was one of the best parts of our stay: private concierge service, a lounge reserved just for people with this package, and tons of other wonderful amenities. Our first day there, we went upstairs to check it out and met James, one of the bartenders in the lounge. We loved James! He was friendly,knowledgeable about the area (what to see, what to avoid) and made the best rum punch I've ever tasted! Each evening from 5-8pm, the lounge hosts a cocktail reception, complete with a nice array of hot and cold appetizers. And it's all FREE! Awesome!
All in all, we had a lovely experience and both said that despite the downsides, we would definitely stay at the Palazzo again.
