Palms still has some full pay Video poker, but not as many as they had. They also removed all comps and promos from some of them and reduced points on some others. The poker situation keeps changing, right now it's in the sports book running 1/2 NL and 2/6 spread. Plenty of night life here, but the rooms were only average from what I would expect. They do have a great pool and lots of good food options.
This is an okay place to play about a mile west of the Strip. The place draws mostly locals during the week with its promotions. It draws young LA hipsters mainly on the weekend.
It does have some full pay video poker machines. The slots payout somewhat better than on the Strip. They have an overpriced food court ($12 for a hot dog, fries, and a soda). But the buffet was actually pretty nice and the price was actually good compared to other Vegas buffets. We always buy the $40 in slot play coupon for $25 before we head out there, so that is a plus as well. Some of the dealers are nice and some not so much.

I love the Palms. It's got extremely easy access, it's off of the strip so you don't have to deal with crazy traffic or people, it's classy and nice. Great video poker, one of the best in town for that. They are also pretty good to their players as well, in terms of mailers, comps and promotions. I love Nove! What a great Italian restaurant! Their coffee shop sucks, though. Just do the coffee shop thing somewhere else. Overall, I love this place, and will stay here again and again if they keep treating me well.
My food rating is based on the buffet and court. They are very average. As you might know they were known for having great VP, it is still very good, but they have taken out some positive games. I like the style it is "modern" and slick. They have a good coffee franchise place. I hit a royal there less than 2 years and my positive results are about every other time. Drink service is good once they find you. Early in the day the CWs have large stations. they have a food court and a movie theatre.
We love going to the Palms Casino every trip to Las Vegas. The old garage was always almost full but now since they added another parking garage the parking is easier. The place is always full of young people going to the clubs or younger people going to the movie theatre and food court,
