Palazzo Hotel is an all-suite, 5-Star, 5-Diamond hotel situated on the Las Vegas Strip between The Wynn to the South and its sister property, the Venetian Hotel, to the North. Directly across the street you will find the expansive Fashion Show Mall, as well as another casino hotel, Treasure Island, from which you can take a tram to the Mirage hotel.
All 3,066 "rooms" at the hotel are actually suites--Palazzo suites, if you will--similar to those at the Palazzo's sister property, the Venetian (see our Venetian vs Palazzo post for a comparison of the two hotels. Guests can choose between two basic types of suites, Palazzo and Prestige Suites, and within each of these broad categories various types of offerings.
All of suites feature Italian style décor and offer amenities like multiple flat screen TVs and soaking tubs. Many of them have sunken living rooms and separate dining areas.
The main difference between the Palazzo and Prestige Suites is that Prestige guests have access to upgraded amenities, including the 23rd floor VIP Lounge. There they can enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. weekdays or brunch between 9 a.m. and noon on weekends. Snacks, hors d'oeuvres, and cocktails are available later in the day, and on Friday and Saturday evenings between 6 and 9 p.m., there is live piano entertainment in the lounge as well. Prestige guests also have access to a private check-in area, VIP elevators, and a DVD library. Additional services such as packing and unpacking, butler service and in-suite celebration of special occasions can be arranged on request.
In summary, the accommodations at the Palazzo are comparable to what you will find at other 5 Diamond resorts in Las Vegas, like the Bellagio and Wynn, but with the added feature that it is an all-suite hotel. The property connects to the Venetian, which like the Palazzo, offers world class shopping and dining. Furthermore, as if the seven pools and and world class spa at the Palazzo are not enough, guests also have free access to the Venetian pools and spa. The main difference between the Palazzo and the Venetian is that the Palazzo does not have a specific theme. The Venetian seems a tad more family-friendly since there are more affordable dining options as well as family-friendly activities such as Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and the free outdoor entertainment in St. Marks Square.

Prior to the construction of the Venetian Hotel Las Vegas and then the Palazzo, another major property, the Sands Hotel and Casino, stood in the same location. Entrepreneur Sheldon Adelson and his partners bought the Sands in 1989, and the following year opened the nearby Sands Expo Convention Center. (The latter is not to be confused with the Las Vegas Convention Center, which is a different facility opposite what used to be the Las Vegas Hilton and is now the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino). In its heyday, the Sands Hotel and Casino, which operated from 1956-1996, was classic Vegas at its best. It was home to the famed Copa Room where the likes of Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, Jr. performed to capacity crowds. But by 1996, the 40-year-old hotel had lost its luster, so Adelson had the aging Sands Hotel imploded in order to replace it with a grander themed resort, the Venetian.

The Palazzo hotel pool area consists of no less than seven pools and four hot tubs. The surrounding fountains and foliage provide a relaxing retreat that is perfect for families.
All of the pools are outdoors. They range from 1½ feet to 4 feet deep. The area is open year-round. Hours are usually from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., but only to 4 p.m. during the winter. One of the pools, the Azure Luxury Pool, is closed during the winter and otherwise open weekends only and is for adults only.
There is ample seating (chairs and chaise lounges) around the pool and even wading lounge chairs, which allow guests to stay cool while soaking up the sun. There are also 41 cabanas surrounding the pool, which guests who want more luxury and privacy can rent. The cabanas include the following amenities:
The pool area is wheelchair accessible. Unfortunately, no inner tubes, rafts, or pool toys are available for rental. A seasonal poolside restaurant, Solaro by Wolfgang Puck, is open for breakfast and lunch from March through October.
Leisurely making your way along cobblestone walkways with a painted sky ceiling overhead, steps away from more than 160 stores and eateries surrounding a quarter mile long Grand Canal. And as if all that isn't enough, there is free outdoor entertainment, too. Shopping doesn't get any better than this!
The Venetian is so widely known for its outstanding shopping, it attracts well-to-do visitors from all over the world. But what many Las Vegas visitors might not know is that now the Palazzo has its own luxurious shopping mall featuring more than 60 high-end shops. The Shoppes at the Palazzo include Barney's New York, along with numerous fashion forward boutiques whose designer names read like a Who's Who in the fashion world. Barney's, Burberry, Cole Haan, and Ralph Lauren all offer children's apparel. The Shoppes at the Palazzo are open Sunday-Thursday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to midnight.
While guests at the Palazzo hyotel can shop for virtually anything their heart desires in their own back yard, we would be remiss if we didn't mention that this other huge shopping mall is right across the street. Unlike the Shoppes at the Palazzo and Venetian, the Fashion Show Mall offers merchandise at all price points, and even upscale stores like Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue have sales with huge savings. Another plus is that the mall is packed with inexpensive places to eat. Last, but certainly not least, there is a Tix4Tonight outlet where you can pick up discounted tickets for many top shows all over town.
