Return to The Palazzo

This was a return to Palazzo for me.  Even though I spent one night at Planet Hollywood my main home casino this trip was Palazzo.

I had a good time at Palazzo in December and wanted to relax a little on this trip.  The casino at Palazzo never got too crazy and the environment, in general, was pretty chill so it would make for a nice place to stay.

I also had an offer I couldn’t refuse of three comp nights.  It would be hard to say no.  The rooms are large and comfortable.  Perfect to get away in.

Once again my room/suite didn’t disappoint.  It was clean when I arrived and cleaned daily.  All furnishings were in tip top condition.

I tried the “$20 trick” for the first time and was treated to a high room, near the elevator, with a nice view of the strip.  I’m not normally one to sit by a window and look at the view, but it was nice.  I was more happy to be by the elevator.

Walking into the room I saw one of my favorite features in the suite – the Master Light Switch.  This controls lights in the bathroom, sleeping and living areas.  It just lessens the amount of lights to turn off/on.  This is a big room!  Not a big deal, but it’s nice to have.

I had the same type of suite as I did in December so I didn’t take many pictures.  You can look at the old flickr gallery to see more.  Having said that, into the bathroom we go.  There was a powerful shower and tub to the left.

The water closet (toilet) is to the right of the bathroom.  I don’t love the high throne and hate that the door automatically slams shut.  I was not sticking my foot in the picture so you could see the toilet. 🙂

The bathroom is huge and set up very nicely.  The only negative is that the water closet door slams shut.

Next up is the sleeping area with huge 42″ HDTV and cool underlit dresser.  Bottle of water not included.

The sleeping area also has a big, comfortable chair to relax and watch TV from.

There are lots more pictures and Palazzo room info after the jump.

The bed is so comfortable.  The bedding was plush and the mattress is firm but not hard.  Even though I didn’t sleep much, I was always comfortable in bed.  There’s also a bench at the end of the bed that was nice to rest random items on.

The suite has a large closet with two robes for you to use.  The robes are nice, but not the softest or most comfortable.  I kept the door to the closet closed because of that.

Moving on from the sleeping area is the living/dining/work area.  This section of the suite is about the same size as the sleeping area.  It’s a few steps down to give it a feeling of separation from the sleeping area.

The sectional couch is comfortable, but not spectacularly so.  There is a pull out sofa if you have a guest.  The work station has a good amount of space and includes a fax machine.  The ottoman is a favorite of feature of mine.  The cushiony border invites you to put your feet up and relax.  Interesting that the TV is smaller than the one in the sleeping area.

There’s also a table for four to eat while looking at the nice view.  My dining table was wobbly and if I’d wanted room service I would have complained, but I only used the table on the last day.

I had another excellent room at Palazzo.  Everything was clean when I entered and was cleaned on a daily basis.  I ended up spending a good amount of time in the room and I was happy to have so much space.

There was one overwhelming negative about the room.  My mobile phone had awful service in the room.  I have an iPhone with AT&T service and only received spotty phone and data service.  This was bothersome and a large negative against staying at Palazzo.

I would have been very upset if I was there for business.  Thankfully, this was a solo trip and the one negative didn’t effect me too much.  The room itself was fantastic.

  1. Nice review. Did you try taking your iPhone out of 3G mode and putting it “E” (EDGE) only mode?

    That made a HUGE difference for me at Aria in January.

  2. Thanks Eric. I didn’t bother, I used the wifi for data since I was paying for it anyway. When I lost calls I just went to the mall. It was inconvenient, but I survived. I always forget to turn off 3G. Thanks for the reminder.
