We had not been to Las Vegas since 2007 after several prior visits. Our last stay was at the Wynn which we liked a lot, but we decided that we should stay at one of the newer hotels on the strip. Our decision to stay at this hotel was based on good value and the opportunity to stay on the prestige level.
The Palazzo is a very nice hotel, but the décor of the property was not to our liking. Brown is a very popular color at this hotel, often combined with blue and gold. It is all very nice, but it is a little too much of the same thing. The overall look is dark and heavy and it also lacks some of the pizzazz found at other hotels, including those within The Venetian complex. We thought that this being the newest hotel in the development that it would be the nicest and most upscale, but it really did not come across that way to us.
As most people know, the rooms are very spacious. They have nice woodwork and moldings, but too much brown and heavy fabrics that gave the room a dark ambiance. The large marble bathroom with separate shower, tub, and water closet is attractive, but the TV mounted to the wall in a corner seemed like an afterthought, and I am sure it was not. It is all very nice for sure, but just not our personal taste.
As for the prestige level, we felt it was well worth the extra money. We liked the private 23rd floor check in and check out, but you still have to fight the crowds at the elevator banks. We enjoyed cocktails and a very good selection of appetizers plus a delicious pasta choice during the late afternoon/early evening presentation. The breakfast was fine with a nice selection of light fair. All enjoyed in several connecting rooms overlooking the strip on the 23rd floor, that of course were colored brown, but lighter and softer which gave the room a comfortable and elegant look.
The prestige level is basically a club lounge that you pay extra to use. Your room can be anywhere in the hotel. This allows the hotel to open the prestige level to as many guests as possible that want to pay for the extra amenities. It is not limited to one floor of rooms on the same level of the lounge like the club level that is often found at Ritz Carlton hotels. This meant that the lounge area could be crowded at times. When we arrived for cocktails, there was a long line at the bar and we did not feel like we just arrived at a prestige level. But after a while the rooms thinned out and our early breakfast the next morning was not too busy. There are other benefits to this package including some discounts to restaurants and bars in the hotel, and no extra resort fee.
The rest of the hotel is standard upscale Vegas. The attractive pool area has several pools and areas to hang out in, but morning sun is limited. You can easily walk to more pools at The Venetian. The Palazzo gym is nice and bright, but you may want to walk a few minutes down a corridor to the larger and more interesting gym at The Venetian. And finally, the garage at this hotel is ugly. This is usually something that we do not comment on, but at this hotel it stands out, in a bad way, partly because the garages at some other hotels are so nice. However, if you know where to park, it is very easy to get to the elevators that take you up to the rooms.
Even though the décor and color palette of the hotel was not to our liking, overall this is a good hotel to stay at and at times can offer good value.
