Last update

Mark your calendar folks! Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas is set to open on April 27 after being closed for over 2 years due to the crippling effects of Covid-19, ongoing pandemic restrictions and recent renovation.

A city that welcomed 19 million visitors in 2019 alone is finally returning to its former glory, and the Palms Casino Resort will play a crucial role in that.

The property, which is not located on the Strip but just over a mile away, will open again on April 27. What changed? A lot. For once the resort has taken on new ownership under San Manuel, Palms will be the first property in Las Vegas to be owned and operated by a Native American tribe.

Another thing travelers can expect is a huge renovation which costs more $600 million. Today, although many improvements and modifications have been made, much of the property’s unique decor remains intact. However, the station is said to be impeccable.

A renovated casino floor will have a new game layout that includes slots, table games, and more. The layout will look like spacious slot machine “pods” that will allow guests to mingle with friends if they choose while leaving others plenty of room for social distancing.

Travelers will find themselves with new games and a whole new sports betting site, as well as a new rewards program that travelers can take full advantage of.

If you’re not into gaming, don’t worry, there are plenty of other upgrades you can benefit from. The station currently has 14 cinemas. Yes, you read that right, 14 of them. Now, if you’ve been to the Palms Casino Resort in the past, you might think this isn’t necessarily new per se. However, all theaters have been “completely redone” with new reclining seats and a remodeled lobby.

Restaurants such as Scotch 80 Prime, Chef Michael Symon’s Mabel’s BBQ and Send Noodles will return. In addition to these hotspots, customers will be able to try a new casual dining option called: Serano Vista Café. American cuisine in the style of a gastro-pub.

Renovations to The Palms began in 2019 and while travelers will be able to indulge in the endless perks the resort has to offer, some parts of The Palms are not yet complete.

General Manager Kiser Murphey noted that the property is a work in progress. The iconic Ghostbar, as well as the Pearl Theatre, are both set to reopen this summer.

Travelers can choose between 2 towers and 766 hotel rooms and suites, with reservations available from April 28.

Beyond the standard rooms, the Palms will offer several very upscale suites such as the Hardwood Suite. This suite has its own black and white basketball court, as well as the Kingpin Suite, which invites guests to bowl right in the living room!

If that all sounds a bit extravagant, just wait until you see the price tags that come with these sequels.

The Kingpin Suite is available for $15,000 per night while nightly rates for the Hardwood start at $20,000.

If these rates are a little out of your budget, a great alternative would be the “Ivory King” room. This 440 square foot beauty will set you back around $289 on a Friday or Saturday night.

If even that is a bit too much, consider booking on weekdays when you can find rates as low as $79 per day.

The property will celebrate its reopening with a fireworks display on April 27, and travelers can look forward to a mask-free vacation. The state of Nevada has lifted the statewide mask mandate.
