Take a bet on Vegas even if you’re not a gambler. This desert oasis of bright lights and energy may have made its name through gaming; however, the city offers today’s travelers so much more than casinos. Whether it’s for a quick weekend getaway or a longer stay, Las Vegas has much to offer the discerning traveler.

The Palms – A Las Vegas Classic

Just off the Strip, the Palms Casino Resort’s Sky Villas offer stratospheric levels of luxury in comfort and design. This iconic hotel’s newly redesigned penthouses and suites reflect an individual urban sensibility. Penthouses are couched in high-end and custom marble, woodwork, art, fixtures, and furniture. Even the most sophisticated traveler will be taken aback at the bird’s-eye views of a glittery city at night.

Guests of the Sky Villa penthouses enjoy amenities unlike any other hotel in Las Vegas. Each penthouse has its own cantilevered pool. Expansive in-suite bars and outdoor terraces allow for casual and relaxed entertaining, while custom furniture makes every seat the best in the house. Spacious bedrooms are decked out with the highest quality linens; and guests can pamper themselves with in-villa perks like a sauna, massage room, and exercise room equipped with a Peloton bike.

Sky Villa suites guests also experience unforgettable views from generously sized gathering areas and airy bedrooms. Suites are beautifully appointed with attentive and thoughtful custom decor. A full wet bar, walk-in shower, and soaking tub make relaxation easy. And Sky Villas’ butler service and luxury car service to and from the airport is enough to make anyone feel like a star!

It’s good to be on top of the world. Enjoy the 360-degree view of all Las Vegas from 55 floors up at the rooftop Apex Social Club, where every seat is the best one in the house, indoors or out.

Sleek and contemporary decor is complemented by the talents of professional mixologists, who deliver unexpected delights through old favorites and custom libations. For a more down-to-earth ambiance, the hotel’s Camden Cocktail Lounge serves up equally impressive drinks and small plates in a warm and intimate setting.

Scotch 80 Prime at the Palms Casino Resort is the on-site steakhouse where guests can revel in old-school Vegas glamour while enjoying high-end dining and never have to leave the resort. From sumptuous steaks to creative seafood dishes and exclusive scotches guest would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else; it’s not just a meal, it’s an experience.

Fabulous Eateries

Visit the nearby Grand Canal Shoppes and enjoy the weekend brunch at Morels Steakhouse & Bistro. The patio overlooks the Strip; be in the middle of it all and yet still above the fray. Their new Brunch with Benefits allows the whole table to order bottomless mimosas for $5 each when one person in the party of eight or more orders a bottomless mimosa for $25. The inventive, French-inspired brunch menu features freshly prepared smoothies, iced seafood plates, crepes, salads, fluffy griddle breakfasts, and heartier fish, meat, and pasta dishes. 

Sugar Factory’s 2-story flagship on the Strip serves up sweet treats for the kid in everyone, from their signature Couture Pops to candy, ice cream, and more. Don’t miss their famed smoking candy goblets filled with delightful drink concoctions and complementary candies (also available without alcohol). Sugar Factory is more than just a sweet face, though; it also serves a variety of American favorites like pancakes, pizzas, burgers, and more.

Treat Yourself

Experience the ultimate in self-care through facials at The Spa at Trump Las Vegas. Attentive and experienced estheticians use premium care products to oxygenate, hydrate, smooth, brighten, and rejuvenate skin in a warm and welcoming setting. The Delano Las Vegas’ Bathhouse Spa’s aromatherapy massages provide physical and mental stress relief in a wholly relaxing experience that leaves guests feeling refreshed and calm.

The flash and excitement of Vegas reaches far beyond the casinos. From lavish dining to pampering spa treatments, luxurious suites to exhilarating cocktail lounges, there’s something for everyone beyond the gaming tables of Nevada’s biggest – and perhaps best-known – city.
