The Palms Casino Resort is a casino hotel and residential tower located near the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. The Palms Casino Resort has 653 rooms and suites and contains a 95,000 sq ft (8,800 m2) casino, recording studio, Michelin-starred restaurant, and 2,500-seat concert theater.

Although it is located off the Strip, the resort has become a popular destination for many, especially younger people, Hollywood actors, and celebrities. The Palms competes for market share with Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, another off-strip resort aimed toward the 21–39 demographic. Both resorts are styled in a modern, neo-retro fashion.

The Fantasy Tower is also home to several nightlife venues including Moon Nightclub and Rain Nightclub. The tower holds what are known as the Sky Villas and Fantasy Suites, which are some of the most expensive hotel suites in the world. The Two Story Sky Villa on the top floor, billed at US$40,000 per night, is listed at number 5 on the World's 15 Most Expensive Hotel Suites compiled by CNN Go in March 2012.[1] The Sky Villas have played host to numerous celebrities.

Maloof announced a third tower called Palms Place, a residential high-rise built on the west end of the Palms property. The design architect was Jerde Partnership Construction and this third and final tower has been completed. Residents were allowed to move in on February 29, 2008. On May 31, 2008, the grand opening night took place that marked the latest addition to the Palms, as Palms Place is a multi-million dollar, 58-story hotel, condominium, and spa tower that provides 599 suites.[10] In June 2014, Phil Maloof listed his top floor penthouse at Palms Place for USD$38 million, making the residence one of the most expensive apartments in the world.[11]

On October 27, 2005, the second tower, named the "Fantasy Tower", opened at a cost of $600 million. In keeping with George Maloof's basketball interest (the Maloofs were majority owners of the NBA's Sacramento Kings), the Fantasy Tower includes a two-story, 10,000 sq ft (930 m2) suite that includes the only basketball court in a hotel suite. The suite includes a locker room, scoreboard, and multi-screen entertainment system. Some of the other fantasy rooms include the G suite, the Barbie suite, and the King Pin suite.
