Anyway, the Palms rooms, restaurants, clubs, and ambience are spectacular! This is where ALL the beautiful people flock when in town. Let's start with the lime-green limo that picks you up at the airport. There's no mistaking WHERE you’re going in that car! When the hotel first opened 2 years ago, it was featured on MTV's show The Real World Las Vegas. A reality show about seven strangers picked to live and work together. The Real World suite is a top seller, getting booked up to months prior. At about $5,000 a weekend, it's sure to please! There’s a suite named after George’s sister and Playpen rooms that include dance floors and stripper poles. Standard rooms are spacious and well-appointed, as well.
But who stays in their room while in Vegas? The REAL fun is at the Ghost Bar on the 55th floor of the hotel. Take a quick ride up and let your inhibitions loose, baby! With futuristic furniture and a ceiling that changes colors, beautiful people crowd into this bar, which has a phenomenal view of Las Vegas and a see-through floor on the patio named the ghost deck, Ghost Bar is one of my favorite places! Or perhaps Rain nightclub is more your speed--a 28,000-foot club with an elevated dance floor, private cabanas, and fire and smoke that billow out above the dance floor when you least expect it. This is the place where Britney Spears played an impromptu concert.
Skin Lounge is a pool/nightclub that includes go-go dancers and floating chairs. I love the pool here. There are several private cabanas, a small sand beach, and white chairs that float in the pool!
There are several restaurants, but I have never been to any of them. Of course, all this luxury comes at a price, but you never know who's going to be sitting at the table next to you, drinking martinis! There's even a palm reader in the casino if you feel the need for some help from the 'other side'. This hotel does accept small pets.

The rooms are nice, but we don’t care much about rooms since we go to Vegas to gamble, party, and chill by the pool, not hang out in the room. The rooms are very nice, though and include the most comfortable hotel bed I’ve ever slept in. The pool is awesome, although not in the Mandalay Bay sense. If you go to the pool to relax, have a few drinks and scope out members of the opposite sex this pool if that is for you. It’s not as much of a party pool as the Hard Rock – it’s more laid-back. The Palms pretty much had everything we look for in Vegas and it’s all at in one place and that’s why it’s our favorite place to stay.

The Palms is located on Flamingo Road on the other side of the freeways from the Strip, on a stretch of road that’s considerably quieter. It’s nice to be able to drive up and park in visitor parking and walk in a front door without making a 15 minute journey through elevators, escalators and long passageways. From the minute you arrive at The Palms’s main entrance you’re greeted with the color and motif of the green palm, but other than that, it’s rather an impersonal and cookie-cutter public area. There are gaming tables, slots, a good range of fast food places and a movie theater complex. Of the fancier restaurants, the most appealing is Little Buddha, a French managed establishment that offers Chinese cuisine and a fresh sushi bar. Rooms and suites come with all the latest high-speed interconnectivity and amenities and the higher up you can get yours near the top 42nd floor, the better view you get of the city and the Strip. The main highlight of The Palms to both Vegas residents and other visitors who get out for nighttime entertainment are Rain in the Desert, a multi-level nightclub with lavish water, fire and fog special effect displays, also the atmospheric Ghostbar—a lounge themed in shrouds of gray and green that hovers over the Strip with 14-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and an outdoor "Ghostdeck" overlooking the entire city. For recuperation and rejuvenation next day, visit the resort’s own The Palms Spa, which features a wide range range of treatments and therapies along with a state-of-the-art fitness center. The ground floor swimming pool and adjacent bar is the daytime venue for people watching and staying cool outdoors in spite of Las Vegas’s blistering temperatures.
