Home > Palazzo Hotel Review - Las Vegas Strip Hotel and Casino
So glad we picked the Palazzo! After trawling online for several days we finally decided on the Palazzo and I'm so very glad we did. It was our first stay in this gorgeous Italian-themed resort and upon arriving, first impressions were WOW! We knew the location was brilliant, being able to walk between here and the Venetian and the place oozed with charm and sophistication from the moment you entered. Standing in the lobby waiting to be checked in felt like you are about to enter a grand gallery in Italy, and it is safe to say we were very excited to explore the hotel and couldn't wait to see our suite.
Check in was so pleasant. Yes there was a line, but we were checked in swiftly by friendly and professional staff who gave us useful and clear information on where we could find our suite.
For a standard suite it was absolutely huge you could definitely tell the Palazzo was one of the largest resorts in the world. We had floor to ceiling windows, a large lounge area with a TV cabinet, corner sofa, mini bar and a table and chairs and two large beds, in fact I actually think that the suite was bigger than the footprint of our house! The suite has possibly got the biggest, nicest bathroom I've ever seen. It was a stunning marble bathroom with his and her sinks, big bath, shower, vanity area and a separate toilet. The room also came with cool variation of lighting effects and automatic blinds and drapes which I think is just one of the many aspects that makes the Palazzo one of the best, if not the best of the luxury hotels you can get.
When we went to explore the hotel complex, which is shared with its sister hotel, we were again taken back by the decor, marbled floors, giant paintings, chandeliers, beautiful furnishings, everything perfectly cleaned and well maintained. There are a huge amount of bars and restaurants everywhere in this resort - one of our personal favorites was Grand Lux Cafe, you must give this a go!
The casino seemed more classy and upmarket than others we had visited. Having trawled through most of the casinos (you pretty much have to walk through them all to get along the strip), this is one of the better ones. Some of the others are dark, gloomy and dated.
It's so hard to portray the sheer size of this resort complex; it is surprisingly large. On our three-day stay I'm not sure if we even covered half of it! The Grand Canal Shoppes is a wonder in itself, it has stunningly beautiful décor with marble everywhere to be seen; you really feel like you are walking through an Italian Palace. The canals are something else; something like we have never seen in any other resort and having traveled quite a lot this is saying something. Walking along the Canals, Shops and Restaurants and arriving in St Mark's Square - you really need to try hard to remember, you are inside a hotel in Las Vegas, and not be fooled for thinking you are in the real Venice (ok, apart from the fake skies and clear water!).
The Palazzo and Venetian share their pool deck, this is a sprawling area of different pools, Jacuzzis and sun soaked terraces. The pool area is decorated in the same Italian style as the hotel and oozes class and luxury. Just what you need when you want to relax and there were an abundance of nice places to sit down and chill.
As my partner and I are very well traveled, we have stayed in a large array of different hotels and have to both agree that the Palazzo has to be the best of the best. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and really hope to return in the near future.Reviews of Vegas Hotels (2016) - Independent Las Vegas hotel reviews incl. rooms, suites, bars, restaurants, gaming areas but no lounge acts.
