LAS VEGAS, June 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Palms Casino Resort is investing $50 million in the first phase of a transformation that will renovate and reenergize the property that launched a Las Vegas celebrity revolution. The transformation, beginning this summer, will encompass a lavish Palms Tower room and suite redesign, appealing new culinary options, reimagined gaming spaces and new, distinctive nightlife experiences.
"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. Designed by Klai Juba, the sophisticated rooms will feature horizontal lines, warm wood tones and vibrant luxe velvets. Each sleek space will highlight custom artwork that complements the overall atmosphere. The mood will be sensual and edgy while staying true to function and user friendliness. 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 is evolving to offer new selections that will add to the already celebrated Simon Restaurant & Lounge, N9NE Steakhouse and Nove Italiano. The first piece of the new dining puzzle, Heraea, a sports-themed restaurant and lounge, opens for guests 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. Heraea is the brainchild of The ONE Group that is known for its high-energy dining venues. In addition Palms will 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 elevate the Palms signature nightlife outlets. The property's longstanding relationship with the N9NE Group continues with exciting transformations 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 and offers the latest in technological advancements and convenience.
Renovations begin in July and will continue in stages through the end of 2012 with an aim to have the projects completed in time to ring in 2013.
