Palms Place

Palms Place Hotel and Spa owner George Maloof believes that much of his new luxury high rise’s appeal actually boils down to three things: Location. Location. Location.

The non-gaming, non-smoking, multimillion-dollar property has easy access to the hip and diverse lifestyle of the Palms Resort and Casino while offering the exclusive atmosphere of a boutique hotel. Like the original celebrity-driven Palms tower and the playful Fantasy tower, the most recent addition to the Palms campus is set back from Flamingo Road and just a hop, skip and a jump from the Las Vegas Strip. In other words, if one were to think of Las Vegas as a football field, Palms Place would be located on the 50 yard line. “Everything is in front of us — The Strip, the Spring Mountains,” Maloof said. “The views here are just spectacular.”

Along with 599 units ranging from studio and one-bedroom suites to penthouses, available for purchase or to rent, Palms Place features the lavish Drift Spa, which is home to the city’s first Hammam, a co-ed Turkish bath.The property also includes the famed LA Sunset Tan, a full service salon by renowned color specialist Michael Boychuck, a fitness center complete with movement studio and a stunning lobby bar Rojo Lounge. Celebrity chef Kerry Simon’s Simon Restaurant and Lounge overlooks the pool at Palms Place through floor-to-ceiling windows and even offers poolside dining.

Since the hotel’s February 2008 opening, Palms Place has already attracted a slew of celebrity buyers. Blonde bombshell Jessica Simpson was the first to close on a suite, and like many of the other buyers — whose names have yet to be made public — she bought the unit sight unseen.
