Hello Palms Place Suite Las Vegas!

A friend of mine got an invitation to stay with his buddy in a suite at Palms Casino’s Palm Place. The suite was provided by The Palms along with the entry fee for the 2009 World Series of Poker Tournament.

Location: 4321 W. Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89103, Approx 1.5 miles from the Strip


 

Description/Amenities: All suites (different sizes available), No casino in building, Pool and Spa on location, Two Restaurants/Bar/Lounges

Nice thing about the Palms Casino is they have a lot of casual dining in addition to upscale restaurants.  There is a food court with a McDonalds and other fast food, a 24/7 cafe, and a very low cost buffet with good reakfast/lunch food.

The pool on the weekends is a lot like college spring break, very young party crowd. 

The clubs at night draw a ton of 20-somethings. 

Casino Floor Accessibility: 4-5 minute walk. You need to take the elevator to the 2nd floor, and then a fairly long walk to the casino.  Note – there are two moving walkways which help. 

View: The room was a corner unit on the 22nd floor. All the suites have a side view of the strip.  The view was facing the Venetian/Encore/Trump with a really nice balcony.  Also, the master bedroom had a view 180 deg opposite of the strip.  So overall an awesome view, although the corner unit really helped.

Recommendation: Overall the casino portion of the Palms is very small compared to the other main casinos and is nothing very exciting. It’s a great place to stay if you are young and want to party but if you are not young and don’t want to party, the palms is very bad choice to stay at.

One more thing, from the palms you can walk across the street to Gold Coast Casino which is a very nice, low cost place to gamble.  But other than that you are pretty isolated at the Palms.  It’s about a 15 minute walk to the Rio and you really need to take a taxi or other transportation to go anywhere else.

Special thanks to Maxim (nice lid!) for the video and John for the review…
