Stayed at the Palace five nights in mid-December for work. Booked the reservations through SW Airlines package and upgraded to a luxury tower room. Check-in was fairly quick on a Sunday afternoon, around 4 PM. Given a NS king on the sixth floor, overlooking the front of the hotel (view was to the north). Found the room to be above average in cleanliness and amenities, but lacked a coffee pot (knew this in advance, so I packed my own 4 cup coffee maker). I am fairly picky, so for me to write that the room was above average in cleanliness means it was pretty clean. The bed was comfortable and provided me with pretty good night's rest each night I was there. Rooms have safes in them, for storing valuables, which I found helpful. Local paper was provided each morning, which was a nice touch. Front desk staff, housekeeping and security were all friendly and helpful, making the stay more pleasant.
The casino was overly smoky at times. Had all the table games I like playing - craps and blackjack in particular - with decent rules and low minimums ($5). Most of the dealers were friendly and helpful - a few dealt like robots.
Ate all meals at the hotel restaurants. Jack's Irish Pub was more of just a regular sports bar - no real "Irish Pub" feel to it. The service was slow and the bartender was less than helpful - seemed to be more interested in pushing off work on the waitresses than helping the customers. The fish and chips were about the best I had ever had. The Chinese Express too had less than optimal service - the folks that worked there seemed to be put out and I had to flag down a server to place my order, despite the place nearly being empty. Poor service, although the food was decent. The wait staff at the Grand Café was very attentive and helpful, and the food was decent in quality. My favorite place to eat, though, was the Oyster Bar. Attentive staff, quick service, and delicious food prepared right in front of you. If you enjoy fresh seafood, I strongly recommend you try the fare here. I ate there no less than three times and each meal was pleasant.
Overall, the stay was pleasant and room was more than adequate. I felt safe most of the time I was there although, in the very early morning, a few folks were in the casino, who I felt it necessary to keep my eye on. I recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to stay there in the future.
The above is my personal opinion, based on my observations. Your mileage may vary.
