    I've stayed at Palms before but never Palms Place so we decided to try it for the second part of our trip. It's pretty darn nice. We're in a standard studio suite. It's about 600 Sq feet. Great strip view on the 23rd floor. Three TV's, one in the bedroom. Fridge, microwave, stove top, dishes, dishwasher, great bathroom with jetted tub. Separate check-in from Palms, no one in line Thursday afternoon. They have their own pool. Small and quiet. You also have access to the Palms pool.

    The only downside, and it's not a big deal to us, is it takes awhile to get to the Palms. A couple of elevators, long walk (moving walkways though). Not all that convenient but I guess it's the same with the mega resorts on the strip. It's great to be able to park on a surface lot and have a minute walk to get in.

    Overall a great place to stay.

    Thanks for the review. I stay regularly at Palms and often use Palms Place pool because I prefer it. A couple of times, I have been offered a Palms Place one bedroom when checking in late (I often arrive at 11pm) in lieu of my Palms Ivory Tower room. I was solo one time and the other my friend was not offered the same so was nervous about making the trek to PP room alone in the wee hours so never took the offer. What are your thoughts on that.....a woman heading to her room alone from the casino at 3 or 4 in the morning with some beverages under her belt lol? I've only gone to the pool or Simons and now Cafe 6 and only during busy hours. Do you think it would be an issue?

    Breanna61, I would be nervous at 3 AM or 4 AM.

    There used to be a security guard down by the Palms Place elevators, but I have not seen anyone there in a long time.

    The walkway has a stair by the elevator(I use these stairs all the time) that goes from Palms to the Walkway. It is the world's slowest elevator that only has to go from 1st floor to 2nd floor. But that is a long hallway with two moving walkways.

    Someone could easily be in the stairwell or in the long hallway or even by the elevators that go to Palms Place, and no one would hear anything.

    If you are uncomfortable in that setting, I would not do it.

    Yup the security guard is no longer there, at least not when I was there (I checked out Saturday morning). It's a pretty desolate walk. My girlfriend had to leave a day before me and I walked her to a cab at the Palms at 4:00 am, there were some drunk women spilling drinks all over the elevator but other than that it was fine. But I don't think a single woman should make that trek by herself.

    Thanks BIV and Vic; seems like I've made the right call in not accepting those rooms.

    I have stayed there twice. Never any complaints. I'm surprised I dont here about it more on message boards. Yeah, only thing is that walk, which was annoying when I forgot something in the room.

    If I were a girl walking through there past midnight I'd feel a bit nervous.

    There are two issues, one just as big as the other. Safety is always a big issue, but how you feel about your long walk to your room solo is just as big. You don't want to feel uncomfortable every time you have to do this. You shouldn't have to feel that way whether your trip is about having fun or about business.

    Here is a picture of the long walk from the beginning (or is it the end?). Sorry it is a little blurry.

    And there are actually 2 of those "people movers". I would definitely stay there again, I thought it was a great value. But the distance from the casino would definitely be a detriment for some.

    The rooms here look really great from what I have seen online. Really makes me want to stay here.

    I think Palms Place rooms are some of the finest in Vegas. The studio is great but the 1 BR is amazing. From the spacious areas to the tub by the window...it's all so welcoming. But for me, the shower puts it over the top. You can literally fit 4-6 folks in there easily (allegedly) and it's my little slice of heaven. Very underrated place. The casino is a hike but to me that's s small price to pay for staying there.
