    Could anyone give advice for staying at Palms Place? I am debating whether or not to try it for a couple of nights but want to know what you think about staying there. Thanks!

    I like the place. Their standard studio rooms are about 600 sq feet, 9' ceilings, 2 flatscreens. Small, quiet, nice pool area and you also have access to the Palms pool. This can be a very good value. Sometimes their 1200 one bedroom suites are very affordable too. Plus you have the Gold Coast and Rio across the street. Rio has great shuttles (2 separate ones) to/from the strip.

    It is fine. Yes, you are away from the Strip. But not that far. If you really want to, you can walk to the strip from Palms. I have done it many, many times but never at night.

    Palms Place has its own separate check in. It also has a pool that is MUCH quieter than the Palms party pool. I always enjoyed the bar in Palms Place as no one was ever in there and it is a bar, no video poker machines. Rojo Lounge. When you checkin they might give you a free drink coupon or they might have ended that. The Palms Place rooms are some of the newest rooms in Las Vegas, since the building is something like 10 years old, so it has updated electronics. When we stayed there, my wife found internet service to be spotty,.

    My wife has used both spas in Palms and Palms Place. I don't spa, I drink and gamble.

    If you walk slow, you have a five minute walk from Palms Place to the Palms Casino. When you use the walkway from Palms Place to Palms, the world's slowest elevator will take you from floor two to floor one in what seems like a ten minute wait. My advice, take the stairway that is right there. Yes, it is a ONE floor elevator and it takes forever.

    Palms used to have a shuttle that took you to Caesars. But since Stations recently bought Palms maybe that has stopped. Gold Coast has a shuttle that takes you to Orleans and the Strip. As the other posted stated, the Rio has shuttles also that used to go to Harrah's and Bally's.

    All three casinos have Sportsbooks, which is important to me. My last two trips, I won in all three sportsbooks.

    Palms has good restaurants with N9NE, Alize, and Nove Italiano. Simons used to be in Palms Place, but since SImon died a new restaurant opened there, I forget the name. I have always enjoyed eating breakfast in 24/7 in Palms, especially Eggs Benedict. I have discovered that as the cooks change, the Eggs Benedict changes also. I am not impressed with the Gold Coast restaurants, some people rave about Ping Pang Pong, I guess because it is cheap, and the restaurants at Rio just seem to be chain restaurants to me. BTW, Alize is my favorite restaurant in Las Vegas.

    There really is nothing west of Palms Place, casino wise, other than the stuff from a normal large city. There is a grocery store around 1.0 miles west on Flamingo. I forget the name.

    Would I stay at Palms Place again? Yes.

    I stayed there in a suite for 3 nights a couple years ago, got a great deal (mid-week), included free breakfast etc. Not a bad option if you have a car. Personally prefer the strip because I like to drink and walk around. There was a homicide in the penthouse suite when I was there so that made for a good story.
