Featuring a setting straight from the Victorian era, Main Street Station is an elegant resort that's just steps from the heart of downtown Las Vegas. Housing a large casino, more than 400 hotel rooms and a microbrewery on the premises, it has everything a visitor could want -- and more.For example, railroad enthusiasts will delight in examining several fully restored train cars placed along the sidewalk outside the resort. View the dining compartment, kitchen and sleepers from the opulent Cascade, which was built for a railroad executive in 1897. The Pullman cars of the Blackhawk, used to carry Buffalo Bill Cody and the other stars of the "Wild West Show" across America, are also there.  What's more, antique lovers will be captivated by numerous items inside the property. The lobby, which resembles a train depot with its long wooden benches, is replete with turn-of-the-century artifacts including vintage coin-operated slot machines, apothecary cabinets and a pair of pipe organs. In one of the men's restrooms, a portion of the Berlin wall can be found. In addition, there's a striking statue of a wild boar in the center of the resort's main bar that once stood in a fountain in Nice, France. Request a map at the front desk to pinpoint even more treasures.Everywhere you look, you will spy something beautiful. Be sure to take in the hotel décor: the high ceilings, columns, ornate bronze doors and intricately carved woodwork. There are stained glass windows and chandeliers (including one from the Figaro Opera House in Paris) that will leave you breathless.Main Street Station is as popular with locals as it is with visitors, thanks to a buffet and microbrewery that mix modern flavors and fun. The Garden Court Buffet has a backdrop as enchanting as its name suggests. Devour breakfast, lunch, dinner or a weekend champagne brunch amid a spread fit for royalty here. And the Triple 7 Restaurant and Microbrewery is always packed. You'll find eight to nine handcrafted beers on tap (several of which have won awards), and you can look at the giant copper vats used to create them. The menu includes fresh baked pizzas and pub favorites ranging from burgers to fish and chips. Plus, there's a special corner where sushi and oysters are served.The 28,000-square-foot casino at Main Street Station is spacious. Sporting plenty of table games, slots and video poker machines, it also boasts lots of ceiling fans that keep the air circulating so it never feels smoky.Visitors can stay in guest rooms that combine vintage charm with modern sophistication (i.e., there are flat-screen TVs), and there is meeting space (the Pullman Grille and Social Club) that's guaranteed to inspire creativity and memorable times.In addition to being charming, Main Street Station is convenient. It's connected via the Bridge Avenue walkway to the California Hotel & Casino and only a block from the famous Fremont Street Experience. Visitors can also enjoy other activities, like shopping at the nearby Las Vegas Premium Outlets - North or going to a show at The Smith Center, a new world-class performing arts venue.With its delightful décor, Main Street Station is perfect for anyone who wants to experience a bit of affordable elegance accompanied by gracious service near the center of downtown.

Great for price
PostedAugust 17, 2013
Respectable room plus great buffet for a very low price. Great for anyone who appreciates refined taste and history reflected in the hotel's decorations. It is not on the strip but only a few minutes away if you avoid the rush hours. People -- guests and hotel staff included -- are nice, distinctly different from those pushy people in the strip who just ask for lots of money in return for little hospitality and trap visitors with money pitfalls. Definitely will stay in this hotel again in my next trip. Only regret is that the faucet in the bath tub is not properly connected. The faucet is powerful but once switched to the shower, it becomes very weak. Though it is still tolerable but should not be left unattended.

A Welcome Alternative to the Strip
PostedJuly 14, 2013
The free buffet and low room rate brought me finally to the original heart of Vegas and made me realize what I had been missing all along-- though I had already visited Vegas at least 15 times! Location is the greatest thing about this hotel. My wife and I were very pleasantly surprised that the free buffet does not lack in quality as food was fresh. The Fremont Street experience was wonderful and I am recommending all my folks and friends to go visit the old Vegas at least once.

Palms Casino Resort has been counted among the standard bearers for hipness in Las Vegas since opening its doors with a huge celebrity-studded bash in 2001. Situated just a short distance west of the Las Vegas Strip on Flamingo Road, the resort knows all about style -- but still delivers substance and first-rate service in the process.All the rooms at the Palms are comfortable and trendy, but it's the suites in the resort's Fantasy Tower that truly provide an escape from reality. There's the Kingpin Suite with a regulation-sized bowling alley, the Barbie Suite with hot pink décor and a mirror made from 65 Barbie dolls, the Hardwood Suite with an indoor basketball court and locker room, the Erotic Suite with a round, rotating bed and mirrored ceiling…just to name a few. Plus, there are six Sky Villas (located near the top of the tower under Nove Italiano). These one- and two-story suites provide the pinnacle of luxury, like private cantilevered pools that jut out above the Strip.Speaking of pools, sunbathing aficionados are sure to be lured by the pool area. This magnificent two-acre outdoor playground is comprised of several swimming pools. In addition, there are three bars, a 12-foot waterfall, 27 cabanas, in-water chaise lounges and daybeds. Along with concerts and special events, summer's ongoing Palms Pool & Dayclub parties, like Ditch Fridays, are not to be missed. Warning: Don't let daytime revelry impair you for nighttime debauchery. The Palms is home to some of the city's best bars and nightclubs. Take an elevator up to the 55th floor for Ghostbar, which boasts a breathtaking open-air balcony. Or relax on the ground floor in Social, a bar at the heart of the casino known for having an impressive whiskey collection of more than 30 unique labels, single malts and limited-edition bourbons.If you'd prefer to see a concert in a traditional setting, the music industry's hottest performers can usually be found at the Pearl. All 2,500 seats in this high-tech theater have unobstructed sightlines to the stage.At the French-themed Alizé by chef Andre Rochat and Nove Italiano by chef Geno Bernardo, the spectacular food is overshadowed only by unrivaled views -- panoramic vistas of the Strip and beyond. A hipster's paradise, other trendy restaurants at the Palms include N9NE Steak House, where you'll be living large while savoring tender and tasty cuts of beef. Lao Sze Chuan by renowned Chicago chef Tony Hu serves authentic Sze Chuan cuisine along with a selection of popular Mandarin, Cantonese, Hunan and Shanghai dishes. Lao Sze Chuan also offers dim sum and signature entrees from Hu's Chicago locations like Tony's Chicken with Three Chili. Even the 24 Seven Café, Cafe on the Way, Bistro Buffet and The Eatery, a food court that is positioned next to the 14-screen Brenden Theatres, have fashionable vibes. The casino at the Palms carries all the latest slot and video poker machines. Table games encircle a stylish bar at the center of the resort, where you can watch all the action. Cantor Gaming operates its stylish 9,840-square-foot Cantor Race & Sports Book at the Palms, which features 93 betting carrels, a 1,290-square-foot LED video wall and the Tonic bar.Recharge Salon & Fitness offers wonderful beauty treatments. It also has a cardio center and boasts an outdoor area with whirlpools overlooking Palms Pool & Dayclub. Spend some time shopping in the Palms Shop, or have your fortune told by a palm reader in the Cosmic Corner. And just a short walk away, via the Skytube near The Eatery, is Palms Place, where an additional restaurant, lounge and the heavenly Drift Spa and Hammam await.All of this is why movers and shakers with chic style and sensibilities can be found in Las Vegas at the Palms.

Very good quality for promotion price
PostedJuly 22, 2012
Stayed 4 nights booked via Vegas.com and got everything promised on promotion package though apparently Vegas.com should have alerted guests booking online that there is a resort fee not included. Hotel wireless internet is complimentary as promised but got it only after second enquiry at reception. Complimentary breakfast buffet included in package is good value except reception at restaurant was unnecessarily slow. No reason why guests need to line up for quite a while when many empty tables were available. Overall hotel quality is good with most facilities available. Very likely to book same hotel again in future trips to Vegas. I am a tourist from Hong Kong who travels to the US at least once yearly and see at least 3 to 4 show per stay at Vegas. I have visited many places worldwide except India, Africa and South America.
