    two nights, April 1-3. rates are good, I think, even with resort fee.

    Smarter Vegas says a "superior" room is the Fantasy Tower is $82.60 plus another $40+ in resort fee.

    A studio suite in the Palms Place Hotel is $105 plus resort fee for two nights.

    Smarter Vegas claims there's a $50 food credit by booking that Fantasy Tower room, although it doesn't seem to indicate that when it prompts you to reserve your room.

    Considering I don't know my way around Palms, I don't know the difference between the tower and the PPH. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Palms Place rooms are MUCH nicer.

    Only drawback- its about a 2-3 minute walk to palms place tower from palms casino.

    very cool info, thanks.

    i have the palms place booked through the groopon deal, which i can cancel. i didn't think about the difference of being in one tower in relation to the casino/restaurant.

    not having set foot in the palms for years, i can't remember two things about it. i assume it's all connected, i assume the check in is the same to stay in palms place. you note 2-3 minutes to reach the casino, i assume the same goes for pool access, yes?

    your pics are great, thanks for sharing those.

    Palms place has a separate check in.

    The pool is about the same walk, although palms place has its own pool (smaller+quieter) you can use the other pools as well.

    We are staying at Palms Place this summer; it is our first time there as well. Really, really looking forward to it.

    I'm a big researcher.. part of the fun of going to Vegas for me is sussing out the best deals I can find.. and I somehow lucked into a beaut for a Palms Place studio suite.

    This was booked direct thru the Palms website.. 5 nights at the end of July including a weekend, studio suite, for $380. Plus the resort fees, of course.

    I kind of freaked when it gave me that rate, and booked online right away. I then immediately called the reservation hotline to confirm it had had gone thru, just because I was thinking it must have been too good to be true. The reservation agent seemed as stunned as I was by the rate, but did indeed confirm it, as well as congratulating me on it!

    Boy, I do love Vegas :)

    then the Goopon deal i have is not to shabby, either. not sure of your nights, i'm guessing it includes a weekend. i needed two weeknights for early april. the idea that i was getting any sort of a suite sounded good to me. i was prepared to pay about $100 for two nights at Orleans. i had even booked the room. (Orleans isn't doing me any favors lately. i'm a low roller, but i stay at the orleans on most trips and do a bunch of gambling at boyd properties, so i'm not sure why i'm no longer getting the two free weeknight offer i had been getting. (disappointing, to be sure.))

    nonetheless i got the two nights at Palms for $105 via Goopon, plus resort fees. we decided it was worth splurging and spending the extra $50 total for the two nights for Palms Place. i've never stayed there, and haven't set foot in the place in about 10 years, so i'm in for a new experience. based on everything i'm reading, i'm glad we're booked.

    with resort fees i'd estimate your total at $490 for five nights. my per-night average is $75. yours is $98. if your stay includes those coveted weekend nights, then yeah, you got a great deal, too. congrats, and good luck on your trip.

    Palms + Fantasy Tower + Palms Place is still SMALL

    No way can you get lost in the Palms place like you can over at Caesars. OK, like I get lost over in Caesars.

    Palms Place does have its own Check in as it is the condo units that is managed by Palms. You need to tell the cabbie Palms Place otherwise he will take you to Palms and then you can schlep your bags over. The way to get to Palms Place from Palms is go by the Sportsbook(west side) there is a small little alcove entry way that takes you to a door with stairs behind it, or the elevator. Go to the second floow then go in the covered walkway and then you will have to take the ELEVATOR down to the lobby for checkin at Palms Place.

    I like to recommend the Rojo Lounge in Palms Place if you want a quiet place to drink. No one is EVER there.

    Palms started a free shuttle that goes to Caesars. Or you can walk across the street to Gold Coast and catch their shuttle or walk to Rio and catch their shuttle.

    When I was at the Palms in August/September it was DEAD. Paperposter might have been there more recently than I.

    Alize and N9NE are still very good. Simon at Palms Place and Nove Italiano are good.

    Ditch Fridays ia a great pool party but it won't be open in April.

    The weather in Las Vegas in April can be hot and WINDY WINDY WINDY. Be prepared for that.

    i remember a trip to vegas two years ago in april, weather was decent for the first few days, then indeed it was windy. it cooled off a bit, but was sunny and pleasant during the day if you weren't getting whipped by the wind.

    we have a rental car, so that alleviates the coming and going.

    rojo lounge sounds like a nice quiet place to end a monday or tuesday night, but i'm guessing the price of a simple mixed drink will make me choke on my rum and diet pepsi a little.

    Go for the 1 bedroom suite.

    I just got back from a stay at Palms Place. I suggest you try to upgrade to the one bedroom suite. It cost $50 a night to upgrade from the studio suite.

    You get double the space and 4x the views. Plus a half bath and a tub in the bed room, oh and a fireplace.

    It is a bit of a walk to the casino and hard to find $5 tables, but you can fix that by walking to the Goald Coast.

    I highly recommend it.

    Also has a washer and dryer for longer stays.

    came home two days ago from my trip, and we stayed in the studio suite. considering i never stay in anything nicer than the orleans, a studio suite was a nice upgrade. for the price i'd stay at palms place again. no need for the 1-bedroom suite, i don't spend enough time in the room to warrant anything more than the studio suite.
