I stayed at Palace Station for 4 nights to attend a business conference which was paid for by my employer. Palace Station gave a conference rate of $64 for their Tower rooms with a reduced service fee of $4.99 (instead of the normal $14.99.) I checked before I left and saw that the rate showing on their website was $35 for the Tower Room (they obviously took advantage of the Conference attendees giving them the impression they were getting a lower rate, I would have been pretty annoyed if I was paying considering that I could have gotten the Golden Nugget or Paris for cheaper.)
Check in was very easy, it was around 5pm on a Sunday and there was no line. I was placed into room 6034 which was on the east-end of the hallway with a view of the Strip.
The room was exceptionally clean. The decor was tasteful, the TV was very large and modern, and the shower had nice stone-colored tile. There was no tub and only one sink but that did not bother me as there was a lot of counterspace.
There was no shampoo or conditioner in my room but one quick phone call to housekeeping resolved that and I was given a bag full of toiletries. I really liked the citrus smell of the shampoo and soap and the conditioner and lotion helped my hair and skin in the dessert air.
Housekeeping did a great job, my room was kept very clean and as I passed a room being serviced I could hear the sound of vigarous scrubbing, they obviously do more than just replace towels and soap.
I am a frequent visiter to Las Vegas and have always stayed on the strip. Although the Palace Station Casino, restaurants, and lobby area can't compare to a strip hotel in terms of impressiveness, the rooms themselves are as good as or even better than many of the mid-range strip hotels. Unfortunately with the resort fee, the price can be almost as much as many of the downtown and chepaer strip hotels.
The hotel provides a free shuttle to and from the Airport and to the Fashion Show Mall. This is thanks to that $14.99 fee. The shuttles seemed to be on time and the drivers were pleasant.
I only ate at the hotel twice, once at Starbucks, which is as good as any other Starbucks (and the employees were very friendly) and once at the Grand Cafe. The food and service at Grand Cafe were acceptable and as good as most any other hotel cafes.
Overall I enjoyed my stay and in any other city I would say that the hotel was well worth the $69 paid, but in Las Vegas where hotels like Golden Nugget, Paris, and Mirage are offering rooms for less I can't say it was a bargain. I stayed at Mandalay Bay the night after leaving Palace Stattion for the same rate and it was far nicer. Palace Station might be a good option for someone wanting a clean room and is staying on a weekend or a busy time when the strip rates are exceptionally high or for someone who has a rental car and wants to avoid strip traffic.
