Palms announces $50 million renovation project
June 8, 2012
Palms Casino Resort is investing $50 million in a renovation project that will include a redesign of all 428 rooms and suites in the original Palms Tower new culinary options, “reimagined” gaming spaces and new nightlife options.
"Palms is changing in a major way and will push the boundaries of the ultimate Las Vegas experience," said Joseph A. Magliarditi, president of the Palms. "From our rooms to our restaurants to our casino floor, guests can look forward to a new and exciting atmosphere combined with the same commitment to customer service they have come to expect."
Beginning in July, all 428 rooms and suites in the Palms Tower will be remodeled in an “ultra-chic and modern style," the company said. Designed by Klai Juba, the rooms will feature horizontal lines, warm wood tones and vibrant luxe velvets. Each space will highlight custom artwork that complements the overall atmosphere. The first redesigned rooms are expected to be available to book by September.
In addition to the updated rooms, the entire casino layout will also be reconfigured to maximize flow and ambiance. Changes will include over 250 new slot machines and design upgrades. The property's Center Bar will be remodeled later this year for a striking anchor on the casino floor.
The dining landscape at Palms will offer new selections, including Heraea, a sports-themed restaurant and lounge developed by The ONE Group, which will open by year end. The new venue will take over the space currently occupied by Garduno's, and will offer upscale food, state-of-the-art sports viewing and energetic music in a modern space. Palms will also be expanding its food offerings in the Bistro Buffet as well as adding two new outlets to the The Eatery.
The property renovations will also extend to the Palms signature nightlife outlets to be developed in tandem with the N9NE Group, the project’s longtime nightclub partner. Full details are expected to be announced shortly.
These changes come on the heels of the May 4 opening of the newly refurbished Cantor Gaming race and sports book and Tonic sports bar. One of the few sports books in Las Vegas to include a poker room, the multi-million dollar refurbishment project spans 9,840 square feet.
Renovations begin in July and will continue in stages through the end of 2012 with an aim to have the projects completed in time for New Year’s Day.
