Palms Casino Resort
After a decade of entertaining celebs (and finally getting its hip factor undercut by the Cosmopolitan), the Palms changed management and underwent a $50 million renovation, including new restaurants and lounges and renovated guest rooms. As part of the redo, the Palms Tower’s 428 guest rooms are now a warm cocoon of woods and velvet accents. Perennial favorite N9NE Steakhouse has undergone a makeover as well. And although the pool has been reinvigorated, winning programs such as the popular “Ditch Friday” pool party live on.
