This stay was much better than the previous one. On the prior visit, front desk check-in had an attitude which got us off on a bad start. This time they were very friendly and even upgraded the room to a junior suite from a standard room. In-room
coffee makers have been removed from the rooms about 1 week ago but they were even very apologetic about that. Major improvement. Let's hope it continues.
No complaints, attentive staff, clean, well furnished and maintained room, great value. Nice casino, good restaurants, off strip location has its pluses and minuses, but overall a place I look forward to staying at again.
This Hotel although nice is a bit overrated. Although the nightclubs and bars are great Location to strip is a hassle. The rooms are small and conservative but the view was good. There are two towers and I stayed at the original Palms so I'm not
speaking for the newer tower.
*Positive aspects: Rain, Moon, and Ghostbar. All three alone would be worth the trip to Palms. For only $30 dollar (which is reasonable for Las Vegas standards)you get a pass for all three clubs. The view from Moon and Ghostbar are incredible and if you like a good show with top DJ's then Rain is your place.
*Negative aspects: Rooms are small. Pool is over crowded limited seating that doesn't cost extra. LOCATION. 25-30min walk from strip. $12.00 one way cab ride to strip. Driving to the strip sucks during peak traffic times and there was a lot of construction when we were there.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
*Tip- free shuttle from Rio (which is 5 min walk from Palms) runs to Paris Hotel located on the strip. The shuttle runs till 1:00am. I would do this if you wanted to save a little money instead of paying for a cab.
