Guests love the Palms for its irreverent, fun vibe — the party here is nonstop, and the hotel constantly introduces new concepts. In addition to its classic casino, there are entertaining residencies, shows and myriad bars and lounges, plus non-party options such as the wellness-focused Spa at Palms, a recording studio, plenty of dining concepts and rotating art galleries featuring the world’s most acclaimed artists. And just when you thought Las Vegas couldn’t get any more extravagant, the resort debuted an over-the-top suite in collaboration with world-famous British artist Damien Hirst and design firm Bentel & Bentel for the world’s highest rollers (it is surely one of the most expensive suites out there). The two-story, 9,000-sq-ft suite is laden with Hirst’s most famous works and sculptures, including a tank of formaldehyde with two sharks in it — Winner/Loser (2018), plus specially designed furniture and decor. The contemporary-styled, two-bedroom suite is an adult’s playground: There’s a large outdoor cantilevered pool, salt-therapy room, gym, massage room and multiple lounges.
