By fall, Las Vegas visitors should be able to start booking newly remodeled rooms at the Palms.
The casino resort on Flamingo Road will begin renovating the 428 rooms in its tower next month.
The rooms will feature a sleek, contemporary look designed by Klai Juba Architects, the 17-year-old Las Vegas firm behind the transformation of the Aladdin into Planet Hollywood, several Mandalay Bay projects and the expanded high-rise towers at the Hard Rock. The Palms rooms will feature custom artwork, wood tones and velvet fabric.
The first is expected to be ready in September.
The new rooms are part of a $50 million investment by the Palms in the first phase of a property renovation that also includes a new race and sports book; a new sports bar, Heraea; and a remodeled pool.
The projects are expected to be completed by the end of the year.
