The Palms Casino Resort takes multiple claims to fame with its opening celebrity guests including  Dennis Rodman, Pamela Anderson, and Samuel L Jackson. Its biggest draw came after the filming of MTV’s Real World Las Vegas in 2002. The extravagant suite featured on the show is still available and popularly requested for reservations.

A large portion of their guests are a younger audience as many of the luxuries are designed to enhance the partying experience many seek when visiting Las Vegas, but if you have envisioned a college campus/frat-house type scene, lets correct that view now.

Although nightlife may frequent the media as the main attraction, the Palms is actually tastefully designed. Some of the more appealing recent renovations include an addition to the parking structure and a luxurious update to the interior which features some of the worlds’ most unique and extravagant art installations.

This massive hotel complex spans through three towers that are connected to one another by a sky tube with a moving walkway. Also, don’t miss out on the movie theater, spa and salon complete with tanning beds, shops, and seemingly endless choices for food and drink.
