Palms Suite Information:
The Palms Casino Resort is a casino hotel and residential tower located west of the Las Vegas Strip. The Palms Casino Resort has 653 rooms and suites, a 95,000 square foot casino, a recording studio and a 2,500 seat concert theater. In 1994, the Maloof Family purchased the Fiesta Casino in Las Vegas for $8 Million, selling it in 2000 for over $185 million. The money was reinvested into the development of The Palms Casino Resort.
The Palms opened on November 15, 2001 and was designed by Jon Jerde, principal of the Jerde Partnership. The 2,900 square foot Palm Suite was created by demolishing 6 room on the 28th floor. The Control Room and Production Offices occupied 4 surrounding rooms. The entire floor had to remain empty for 7 months to accommodate the configuration, including the 4 1/2 months of filming.
The Palms Suite cost $2 Million to construct and was designed by Sharmila Tankha of the Jerde Partnership, the same firm that designed The Palms. Unlike previous Real World Houses, the Palms Suite was not decorated with IKEA furnishings.
In October 2005, the second tower named the "Fantasy Tower" opened on the property at a cost of $600 Million. The tower includes fantasy suites ranging from the Hardwood Suite with a half court basketball court to the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa, a two-story suite modeled after the Playboy Mansion. The Fantasy Tower also included the world’s first Playboy Club to operate since 1988. The club subsequently closed in 2012.
Palms Place was the third and final tower constructed on the west end of the Palms property. Opening in 2008, the 58-story hotel, condominium and spa tower provides an additional 599 suites.
The Palms Suite is currently available to the public.
