The Palms Casino Resort is heralded as one of Las Vegas' hippest resort destinations. Owned by the Maloof family, the 703-room property boasts a diverse mix of award-winning bars and restaurants and a 95,000-square-foot casino. The Palms has been home to The Real World: Las Vegas and Bravo’s Celebrity Poker Showdown, as well as E!’s Party at the Palms hosted by Jenny McCarthy and A&E’s Inked. The resort features the hottest collection of Fantasy Suites including the Erotic Suite with its trademark Show Shower, the Real World Suite, as seen on MTV, and the Hardwood Suite – the only hotel room in the world with its own basketball court. VH1, MTV, E!’s Girls Next Door and CSI feature the Palms on a regular basis and the Victoria’s Secret Angels made the Palms a featured destination on their “Angels Across America” tour. In 2005 the Palms embarked on a $750 million expansion that includes the Fantasy Tower and Palms Place, a 49-story hotel, condominium and spa project currently under construction. In addition to extraordinary accommodations that feature one-of-a-kind, custom amenities, the 40-story Fantasy Tower houses an entertainment mecca that mixes dining and nightlife, including the first Playboy® Club to open in more than 20 years – the only one in the world today. A unique licensing agreement with Playboy Enterprises Inc.® showcases the brand in this high-end lounge as well as a themed retail venue. Other expansion developments include Studio at the Palms, the first-ever recording facility in a hotel-casino; The Pearl, a 2,500-occupancy concert theater; and The Palms Pool & Bungalows, a newly designed, $40 million outdoor lounge. Together these elements provide for an all-encompassing resort destination, continuing to develop the Palms as one of the strongest brands in the gaming industry.
