SUITE LIFE AT THE PALAZZO IN LAS VEGAS

Hello friends and Happy New Year! Las Vegas is a popular place to celebrate the New Year. Have you ever wondered where the high rollers stay in Vegas?  Well, one such place is in a suite at the Palazzo Hotel, part of the Venetian complex on the Las Vegas strip. I had the very good fortune to occupy one of those suites on a quick trip to Vegas to attend a pre party for the Presidential Debate that was held at The Venetian a couple of weeks ago. So, let me show you what the suite life at The Palazzo in Las Vegas is like.

Welcome to Suite 709, located on the 49th floor, the highest floor in the hotel. Well, actually there is one additional floor where the Palazzo Club is located, but the 49th floor is the highest one containing rooms.

Double doors open into a large marble foyer and the living room beyond.

Just off the foyer is a powder room, a great feature if you’re entertaining guests.

This was the view from our suite.

There is a dining table, wet bar and mini bar, but curiously, no coffee maker, which I really missed.

This particular suite has 2 bedrooms. This is the Master Bedroom which contains a king sized bed and a daybed for lounging. I was not thrilled by the bed linens which were not particularly high quality, but did appreciate 4 down-filled pillows.

Adjacent to the bedroom is a dressing room with 2 closets and 2 vanities.

I was so happy each vanity had a lighted magnifying mirror, a must for me in a hotel room.

The marble bathroom was huge and well appointed; however, like the bed linens, the towels were also of poor quality.

Here is bedroom number 2 which houses 2 queen sized beds.

The little benches at the foot of each bed came in handy.

The turndown service at night was excellent because they straightened up, provided fresh towels and bathroom amenities , took out the trash, turned down the bed, and best of all, left these little satin drawstring satchels containing chocolates. I’m not big on chocolate but loved the pouch, which I kept and will use for jewelry in the future.

Just off the bedroom was a large dressing area with a huge walk-in closet, safe, and yet another vanity area. Two terrycloth robes and slippers were provided.

Just beyond the dressing room was another large bathroom complete with a jetted tub and separate large shower with 4 body sprayers.

I was impressed with all the bathroom amenities which included everything you could possibly need and more.

Now let’s move next door and I’ll show you around the second suite our family occupied. The rooms were side-by-side but without a connecting door, so we had to exit the suite and walk just down the hall to room 49-719.

The entry and foyer area of suite 719 was identical to suite 709 but this room, while it only had one bedroom, had a massive living room.

and here it is later on in the evening.

As you can see, the suite had a baby grand player piano that provided wonderful entertainment with the flip of a switch. I wanted to take it home with me!

And, if you tired of the piano for entertainment, there was always the theater room.

We enjoyed room service for dinner one night that was set up on this table. The bedroom is just beyond those double doors in the background.

The king size bed was just the right size for my little granddaughter.

And here’s the bathroom which had all the same features as the other suite’s bathrooms.

We had a great time in Vegas, but who wouldn’t with these kind of accommodations?

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE PALAZZO:

Our suites were terrific, very spacious and plush. I loved the player piano, and the large living room, where our family could relax and enjoy each other.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THE PALAZZO:

My favorite hotel in Las Vegas continues to be the Venetian, the sister property to the Palazzo. I think it is a bit nicer but I have never stayed in one of their high roller suites to compare them to these. When you occupy a suite at the Palazzo you get what they refer to as “Prestige” amenities that include a hospitality suite where they serve TERRIBLE food periodically during the day. Not to mince words, but the breakfast was literally inedible! It was a complete JOKE! They should be ashamed of themselves. I think they want to force you downstairs to the casino as quickly as possible. I think the same theory applies to the lack of a coffee maker in the room.

So there you have it: SUITE LIFE AT THE PALAZZO IN LAS VEGAS

    Thought these rooms looked very similar to the rooms at the venetian which is also our favorite place to stay in Vegas. And for the price of those suites I would have requested a coffee maker be sent to the room. Did you attend the debate as well?

  • Juliet Russell

    Oh Celia, I do love your travel posts because you are so honest! And, we are so similar in what we deem ESSENTIAL to travel comfort. In this case the magnifying mirror! We recently spent a weekend in the city and the lack of this essential put a damper on the trip. It may also have impacted my sweet husband as he had to nicely point out I had eye liner on my forehead. As a youngster I may not have cared about the darned mirror but my more mature … ahem … over-fifty self cannot function without one. Cheers!

  • Hi Juliet, you are too funny! Yes, unfortunately my eyesight can’t be correct ed with lasik surgery and who can put makeup on with glasses on? Such a pain! I have been embarrassed too many times for women of a certain age who end up looking like they put their makeup on blindfolded. The ravages of age I’m afraid!

  • Hi Diane. It’s interesting to know that the suites at Venetian look similar. You are so right, I should have asked for a coffee maker to be sent up. We did ask for a deck of cards to be sent up but I bet you can guess what the answer was…NO. They will do anything they can to get you down in their casino.

    Hi Celia,
    I enjoyed this post. I have stayed in these suites and for all the prestige of it I also just wanted a coffee maker. It is all about the casino. My other disappointment was the lack of mirror and poor bathroom lighting. I felt crammed with my products on the small black table. I hope you had a great time and aside from the debate, did you see any shows? My husband and I honeymooned there in 1982 and the city is completely changed and I think the dining choices are fantastic. Well happy New Years to you and I look forward to following you in 2016!!

  • Hi Pamela. I find it so comforting that other women share my thoughts about what makes a great hotel room. There are just some things that high end rooms simply must include, and it is really surprising that The Palazzo puts their casino above all else. When I visit Vegas with my husband, as we do once a year for his business, we always try to include a show. This time we were there for the Presidential debate and family time with my son & grandchild, so no shows this time. But I agree, Vegas is a restaurant paradise!
