Driving within Las Vegas was pretty relaxed, there wasn’t really any traffic to speak of within the main city roads and we eventually found our hotel, the Palazzo.
The Palazzo is quite simply the most stunning hotel I have ever seen; the main reception area made me feel incredibly dwarfed due to the ceiling 50ft-60ft high ceiling. The check in desk is situated right next to a beautiful fountain which is surrounded by landscaped flora and fauna that lusciously compliment the grandiose marble decor.
It is immense inside the hotel complex, almost like a mini town village with shops, a waterfall, and then you see the casino. Oh my. Ding ding ding $ £ $ £ $ £ I felt my Indian gambling blood run through my veins like molten lava and wanted to just dump my bags and test out the visually stunning fruit machine games that littered the casino floor. It was almost teasing that we had to walk through the casino to get to the lift that eventually took us to our room.
Our room was utterly spectacular, a Bella suite that I had found an amazing deal on through expedia.com. The suite was as plush as the reception area, the bathroom was breathtaking, the beds were so comfortable, and the lounge area was sunk down to give the room exceptional character. My favourite thing about the room was the view, seeing Downtown Vegas for the first time was something I’ll never forget, or the 10 or so swimming pools that I eventually spotted within the hotel grounds.
Lorraine had kindly paid for Amy and I go to and see the Jersey Boys show with her; the show was scripted really well and I enjoyed the format. I normally hate musicals! Hearing a lot of the songs brought back tons of memories of my parents, the Jersey slang and humour was spot on. Highly recommended!
At the end of the show, we filed out, Amy retired for the night as the drive had taken it’s toll on her; leaving Rainy and I to explore the Las Vegas night life!
