Mark your calendar people! The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas is set to open on April 27th after being closed for over 2 years due to Covid-19’s crippling effects, ongoing pandemic restrictions, and a recent renovation.
A city that saw 19 million visitors in 2019 alone, is finally returning to its former glory, and the Palms Casino Resort will play a crucial role in that.
The property, which is not located on the strip, but rather just over a mile away, will open its doors once again on April 27. What changed? A lot. For once, the resort took on new ownership under San Manuel, Palms will be the first Las Vegas property to be owned and operated by a Native American tribe.
Another thing travelers can look forward to is a huge renovation that cost over $600 million. Now although many upgrades and changes have been made, much of the property’s unique décor remained untouched. Still, the resort is said to be impeccable.
A remodeled casino floor will have a new game layout that includes slot machines, table games, and more. The layout will resemble spacious “pods” of slots that will enable guests to mingle with friends if they so choose to while giving others plenty of room for social distancing.
Travelers will find themselves with new games and a brand new sportsbook, as well as a new rewards program that travelers can take full advantage of.
If you’re not big on gaming, don’t worry, there are plenty of other upgrades that you can benefit from. The resort currently has 14 movie theaters. Yes, you read that correctly, 14 of them. Now if you’ve been to the Palms Casino Resort in the past you may think to yourself that that in itself is not necessarily new. However, all theaters have been “completely redone” with new reclining seats, and a remodeled lobby.
Restaurants such as Scotch 80 Prime, Mabel’s BBQ by Chef Michael Symon, and Send Noodles will return. In addition to those staple venues, guests will be able to try out a new casual dining option called: Serano Vista Café. American cuisine that resembles a gastro-pub.
Renovations of the Palms began in 2019 and while travelers will be able to indulge themselves with the endless perks the resort has to offer, some parts of the Palms won’t be done just yet.
General Manager Kiser Murphey noted that the property is a work in progress. The iconic Ghostbar, as well as the Pearl Theater, are both expected to reopen this summer.
Travelers can choose between 2 towers and 766 hotel rooms and suites, with bookings available starting as soon as April 28.
Beyond the standard rooms, the Palms will feature several very high-end suites like the Hardwood Suite. This suite has its own black-and-white basketball court, as well as the Kingpin Suite, which welcomes guests to go bowling right in the living room!
If all that sounds a little extravagant, wait until you see the price tags that come with those suites.
The Kingpin Suite is available for $15,000 per night while nightly rates for the Hardwood start at $20,000.
If those rates are a little out of your budget, a great alternative would be the “Ivory King” room. This 440 square feet beauty will set you back around $289 on a Friday or Saturday night.
If even that is a little too much, consider booking during the week when you can find rates as low as $79 per day.
The property will celebrate its reopening with a fireworks show on April 27 and travelers can look forward to a mask-less vacation. The State of Nevada has lifted the mask mandate statewide.
