The Palms Casino Resort


Internationally recognized for its exceptional accommodations, high-energy nightlife, extravagant pools and world-renowned restaurants, The Palms Casino Resort captures all the excitement and energy of Las Vegas in one vibrant setting. Situated on nearly 30 acres, The Palms is a boutique property with three distinct towers – each offering unparalleled views of the iconic Las Vegas Strip. Having recently undergone a multi-million dollar transformation, The Palms has redesigned guest rooms, added new culinary experiences, re-imagined gaming areas and created even more distinctive nightlife and daylife experiences.  Each of The Palm's award-winning restaurants is home to a world-class chef whose cuisine not only excites the senses – but the culinary world as a whole. Whether you’re hungry for a little down-home cooking or have a taste for the exotic, a selection of casual restaurants will please any palate. And with a variety of atmospheres ranging from sports-driven entertainment to relaxed, poolside dining, the settings are as diverse as the menus. The Eatery is a collection of popular, fast-casual restaurants located at the west end of the casino. No matter what or when you're craving, you can always grab a quick bite and then get back to the good times.


The Palms shines brightest once the sun goes down. For those who want a sizzling dance floor with a view, nothing tops Ghostbar. If you're looking for a different vibe, The Palm's offering of  lounges and bars are a comfortable, stylish way to make the most of the night. Home to one of the only IMAX experiences in Las Vegas, Brenden Theatres is a 14-screen movieplex on The Palms casino floor. Each theater really ups the movie magic with tiered stadium seating, plush rocker high-back seats, digital sound and giant wall-to-wall curved screens.


When it's time to relax, nourish your body at the lavishly modern Drift spa. With over 20 treatment rooms and an extensive list of services, Drift is truly a retreat for every body. The spa is also home to the first Hammam in Las Vegas. Inspired by tradition, this co-ed steam bath evolves what has been a Turkish custom for centuries. Recharge Salon & Fitness is a two-story sanctuary featuring a cardio center, beauty salon and pool. From group yoga, Pilates or spin class to a one-on-one personal training session, the fitness center is available to help keep you looking and feeling good while you’re away from home.


The Fantasy Tower guestrooms are truly an escape from reality, offering contemporary furnishings and warm, inviting colors to create the ideal Vegas getaway. Amenities include one king or 2 queen beds (based on availability), LCD TV, refreshment center, feather/down-free bedding, Jacuzzi bath tub, safe, iron/board, hair dryer and more.
