The new Palms Casino Resort: 4 reasons to revisit this Vegas hotel
By Aimee Heckel
If you’ve been to the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, you haven’t been to the Palms. Not this Palms.
This giant Vegas casino resort has been going through a giant, $50-million transformation. What that means to visitors is new restaurants, updated rooms, more slot machines in the casino and other exciting options to choose from in Sin City.
Here are our four favorite new features to check out at the Palms.
1. For the hungry ladies: Xishi. This is a new pan-Asian restaurant serving up traditional and contemporary Asian food. Everything in this modern restaurant is decidedly feminine. Even the restaurant’s name was inspired by the female pronoun “she,” according to the Palms website. The design: a chic lounge bar with a live deejay every night.
Xishi replaces the restaurant Little Buddha.
2. For the hungry men: Heraea. Not to be gender-limited, this restaurant and lounge will appeal to any sports lover. Here, you can find chili cheese fondu, burgers, filet mignon, New York strip steak and, OK, you can find salads, too.
Feeling adventurous? Try the Oyster Shooters Bloody Mary or Margarita, $18 for a half dozen or $36 if you feel like a dozen. Add vodka or tequila for $6.
3. Sophisticated suites. All 428 rooms in the Palms Tower have been redesigned to look super chic and modern. Look for warm woods, luxurious velvets, custom artwork and other upgrades.
Fun fact: Did you know the Palms offers a variety of themed suites?
The Erotic Suite, the “sexiest suite in the city,” boasts the likes of a stocked web bar, an 8-foot round rotating bed and a mirrored ceiling.
The Barbie Suite looked like you’ve been shrunk and plopped into a Barbie Malibu Beach House. We’re talking a starburst mirror framed with 65 Barbie dolls, skirted chairs, Barbie-print upholstery. So. Much. Pink.
4. A redone casino. Because that’s what Vegas is all about, right? (Maybe.) The Palms added more than 250 more slot machines to clink-clink-clink your way deep into the night. That totals more than 1,450 slot machines. The Palms claims to have the loosest slots in town (but we’ve heard that claim before, so no promises form us.)
Tip: If you are the gambling type, consider joining Club Palms, a rewards program: Earn points for playing slots and video-poker machines, and then redeem the points at different outlets, such as a steakhouse, theaters, nightclubs or even palm reading at Cosmic Corner.
