Coming to Las Vegas, Nevada most people have a stereotype in their mind. Whether it is that of the Sinatra Rat-Pack entertainment era, the drama of the Vegas mobster films, or the glitzy and somewhat cheesy makeover of the modern family destination… you come to Vegas expecting one thing but when you stay at the Palazzo Las Vegas, your expectations will be shattered and you will come away with an entirely new way to look at the Las Vegas experience.
Part of the Venetian and Palazzo Resort, The Palazzo Las Vegas is one half of an amazing hotel that awaits you in the desert sands.
First Take on the Palazzo Las Vegas Resort
Built on the location of the previous “king of all things Vegas” Sands Hotel, the Venetian was built to eclipse all other casinos and entertainment complexes on the strip. With the completion of the Venetian in 1999 and then the addition of The Palazzo in 2007 it certainly lives up to the expectations.
Situated in a lively area of the strip just north of the center, The Palazzo is seated in the middle of the action while remaining quiet and aloof enough that you can enjoy the spectacle of The Mirage, Treasure Island, and even an erupting Volcano across the street, but then retreat into comfort and class in your suite just a few feet away.
Italian decor was certainly a beautifully welcome attraction when they built The Venetian but when they added on the Palazzo, it appears that they told the designer, “Take the Venetian, an impressive building with well-known and beloved decor, and make it appear small in comparison.”
The Palazzo dwarfs its own sister hotel in size and stature as the level of elegance and style are unsurpassed. When you walk into the Palazzo Las Vegas, you are stepping into an Italian royal court that may be more of a regal experience than if you were to actually do so in Italy itself. When you stay at The Palazzo, you become royalty.
Diving into Dining
Refined and elegant, this hotel offers a classy respite from the Vegas Strip while remaining immediately available on the strip itself. The Venetian and Palazzo complex offers a mall-like mini-strip with shopping and dining on-site making the entire complex a world unto itself. If you’re out for a quick bit of fast-food or high-class dining, the Palazzo has you covered.
You almost need a menu of what restaurants are available before you can pick a place to peruse the food menu. Seven different bars and lounges, dozens of quick-service locations ranging from the familiar Subway sandwiches and Starbucks coffee to the unusual Curry Pot, Illy Cafe, and Cocolini Gelato, you will find something to snack on.
And if you’re looking for higher-end dining the list grows even larger with Mott32, Majordomo, and Matteo’s Ristorante Italiano, celebrity chef locations by Emeril Lagasse and Wolfgang Puck, other fine steakhouses, international choices, and even the only operational craft brewery on the Las Vegas strip.
What Else to Do At The Palazzo Las Vegas
Before or after your dining experience, take a stroll along the Grand Canal Shoppes and enjoy some of the best interior shopping available anywhere. Currently listed as having 217 stores, your trip to Las Vegas can be commemorated with the purchase of any kind of trinket, memorabilia, or high-end luxury item you are searching for.
Name brands that equate with the same level of Italian Renaissance the Palazzo offers, there are stores along the Shoppes that will dazzle you with their finest products, tantalize you with the dreams of owning top-tier luxury items. Walk among these shops in style and comfort while the Grand Canal trickles alongside of you.
Attractions are not limited to shopping and dining at the Palazzo Las Vegas. On site in the Venetian Palazzo complex is the Vegas location of the world famous Madame Tussauds Wax Museum where you will meet Las Vegas celebrities from the past.
No trip to the Vegas Strip would be complete without taking a romantic and sightseeing gondola ride as you cuddle with your partner while being taken on a slow canal ride through either the fantastic decorations of the (air conditioned) interior of the complex and “Grand Canal Shoppes”, or take in some fresh air in the outdoor gondola ride and enjoy the crystal blue sky and equally blue water.
While The Palazzo Las Vegas will never be confused with any kind of “standard” hotel or even a conventional resort, they are still going to be compared against the “average” accommodations available, and in this comparison, The Palazzo blows away the competition in spades.
There are no “standard” rooms or “singles” available in The Palazzo. Each one of the 3068 guest accommodations in the Palazzo tower are suites and every one of them are 720 square feet or larger making them the most spacious “standard” room on the strip. The Luxury King, and Luxury Two Queen Suites are listed as the “most popular” but the Premier Suites offer more space to spread out.
And if you have the means, the “Top Tier” Suites are beyond compare with The Executive 1-2 bedroom, The Penthouse 2 bedroom, Presidential 3-4 bedroom and the Chairman 3-4 bedroom Suites offering up to 6367 square feet, offering more than double the space of the average residential home.
The complex offers two casino experiences. The Venetian and The Palazzo are separated by a waterfall atrium and row of restaurants making them able to operate independently though the Venetian is worthy of visiting as well. The Palazzo Las Vegas casino gives you two floors of gambling in opulent luxury.
Gaming tables, the most up to date and hottest slots, elaborate poker tournaments, and a very active sports book with a 10’x100’ display showing 34 events at once. Don’t forget to sign up for “Grazie”, The Palazzo Las Vegas loyalty program. Earn points toward everything from drinks, restaurants, spa treatments and even toward upgrading your suite. The Palazzo is the place to be in Las Vegas.
