Palazzo Room Views

We’re booked in a “Luxury View Suite” at the Palazzo during the last week of March. Unlike other hotels, the V/P site doesn’t seem to say anywhere what they mean by “View”. Does it always imply a high floor, or could it be a low floor just not staring at the garage or AC unit that someone posted a picture of (for example, just over the pool)?

From looking at the building on Google Street View and Bing Birds Eye, it seems that the majority of the “strip” views are just of TI/Trump, although if high enough the mountains would be in view, and I can handle that. It appears that if you’re high enough and far enough north, there might be a better view down the strip a bit. Is there a magic word/section name/room number block to ask for?

On the other side, the view over the Wynn golf course to the city/mountains seems nice if high enough; are those considered “View” rooms also?

This is a 10 year anniversary trip, so I want the best room we can get (for my budget!). We’ll be arriving just around midnight on a Monday, with a SW Jackpot package (the hotel portion of the price seems to be in line with V/P’s best direct website rates, which don’t happen to be available direct that week. So not full rack, but not Priceline either).

View means strip side. Personally, I think the views at Palazzo are actually best in the Non-View suites, since you usually get a view of the Wynn golf course and the mountains.

View suites typically have a view of Treasure Island.

We were allocated a view room and we got a high floor strip view that was amazing. We could see Trump towers, Treasure Island and the Siren show, and down the strip.

We hadn't booked a view room but "Tipped" the desk clerk $20.

Ask for a high floor.

View usually means across the strip towards TI and Trump (the strip bends right before V/P).

If you're on a lower floor, you also have a good view of the pools, which can be good or bad depending on who's there...

Thanks all for the advice! I think what I'm looking for is a view like this:

Which looks like the eastern "back" wing facing south; no view of TI but awesome view of the rest of the strip/mountains. The trick is that it has to be high enough to see over the Venetian (this video appears to be from the 45th floor).

I wonder if that wing is considered more or less desirable than the TI views (less is great for me, better chance to request one!). Any other downsides to that part of the building? Does anybody know the proper wing name or room number range I could ask them to put in the record as a request?

I stayed in a room with a view like that once - it was 42-908 I believe. Best view I ever had at Palazzo. But most of the view rooms aren't going to give you that view. ;)

Don't over think it. Go, ask for a room high up with a view, explain its your ten year anniversary, the folks at Palazzo have always been very accomodating when just simply asked politely.

Just like Yourstarla's room, try asking for anything higher than 40th floor and in the 800 or 900 wing rooms....Her room ended in 908. I'm 99% sure that is the south facing view numbers.

I've had front desk suggest these numbers for a great view down strip a few times but I tend to prefer the lower strip view facing TI and the pools usually......

Followup -- just got back from our trip. We ended up being “Venetianed” (which may not be as bad as being tunneled). Arrived at 11:45, around 4-5 sets of people in line with 3 clerks, so less than 5 minute wait. I asked for a high floor 900s-even room. He seemed to acknowledge, then typed a novel for the next 5 minutes. Finally printed our coupons and key cards and got out a map and started drawing a line all the way to the Venetian. Whoa, I said; Venetian? He said that was all he had with a view, but it was an upgraded suite and he was sure we’d like it. If not, we could ask to move in the morning. I asked if the 27th floor was high enough to see over the Venezia tower, and he said it was because Venezia “is only 12 floors”; well yeah, but that’s on top of the garage.

I was prepared to be very annoyed, because some of the upgraded suites seem to be just adding some wasted space from the building shape without any additional amenities. But after the walk through both casinos (long, but not as bad as is often implied here) and to the end of the corridor, we found ourselves at the double door entrance of a 1400sf Piazza suite (similar concept but different layout than the Palazzo Sienna suite), 27-336. Powder room, dining area with TV and bar w/second empty refrigerator, step down to huge living room spanning 2 with TV and 2 seating areas, separate bedroom with a door to the dining area and a railing and curtain to living area, and huge bathroom with jetted tub.

The view was decent but not awesome. We were just below the top of Venezia, so couldn’t see directly to the main part of the strip, but did have a clear view down to the Eiffel Tower, Bally’s, the top of Cosmo, PH Westgate, and the airport. Much better than the AC unit view my coworker had in a Palazzo Sienna the week before :-) The windows are pretty heavily tinted, so even though we semi-faced Venezia, we weren’t looking into rooms nor were they (I assume!) looking into ours. For our afternoon downtime before dinner, I pulled a chair and ottoman over next to the window to read, doze and watch planes take off; wonderful!

We debated whether to move the next day -- well, I debated; my wife had decided she loved the room and the tub, didn’t care about the view, and had no desire to move but would if I insisted. If she’s happy, I’m happy, so we stayed :-) I did check online and saw that the room price even for a Piazza non-view is over $100 more than the one we reserved, so felt like we were getting a good deal.

Overall, we were very happy with the room, but I would have liked the agent to be more interactive with the options -- were there no Palazzo view rooms at all, or just none South facing like I requested? Were there higher floor South facing regular Venetian rooms available? We might have chosen one of those options...but then again, if we did we might have regretted not taking the enormous suite that we really enjoyed. I’d still like to try the Palazzo and its remote shades some day though.

Thanks to all who gave advice here! I submitted some photos; will post a link when they’re up, along with a full TR in appreciation for all the info in this forum.
