The Palazzo (IPA: IPA| [pə.ˈla.ˌt͡soʊ] ) is a AAA five-diamond luxury hotel and casino resort located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada, a suburb of Las Vegas. The Palazzo is owned and operated by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation. The property's design and theme is reflective of modern European ambiance and luxury living.

Parts of the resort were opened to the general public on December 30, 2007. The official grand opening took place on January 17, 2008.

The $1.8 billion resort features a Lobby where guests from the street arrive beneath a 60-foot (18 m) glass dome with a two-story fountain. Those approaching from The Venetian make the transition through a towering octagonal structure, itself topped by a glass-and-iron dome. Visitors to The Palazzo using the underground parking structure can take elevators or escalators from the underground garage and arrive in the center of the property's casino.

Though marketed and portrayed as a stand-alone resort, The Palazzo is actually an extension of The Venetian Casino Resort and the Sands Expo complex on the Las Vegas Strip.Fact|date=January 2008 The Palazzo Casino, like some other casinos on the strip, operates under the license of a related casino—in this case The Venetian's license. The resort's convert|642|ft|m|sing=on high hotel tower features 3,068 all-suite rooms and 375 concierge-level suites.

A 270-unit condo tower will be part of the massive Venetian/Palazzo complex. The tower is being built on top of the convert|90000|sqft|m2|sing=on building that houses the Barneys New York apparel store. The tower was reported to be of a modern glass design, but official renderings that were released on February 14, 2008 show a design that resembles the neighboring Palazzo tower. On September 4, 2008, Las Vegas Sands announced that it had come to an agreement with Starwood Hotels & Resorts to operate the condo tower as a signature branch of The St. Regis Residences with all hallmarks of the St. Regis brand offered to residents. Upon opening in March 2010, the residences will be known as The St. Regis Residences at The Palazzo, Las Vegas.

History

Construction

As of February 27, 2006, the project had been under construction for over a year. Most of that time was spent digging the 4-story-deep hole to put in the underground parking structure. Then the building itself began gradually rising upwards. The steel fabrication and erection was supplied by Schuff Steel Company. By November 2006, the hotel tower had reached the 35th floor. Construction of the ground floors, including the parking garage and shopping center, were well under way.

As of March 2007, the hotel tower's elevator core was complete, and the rooms area was rising to the top. The facade and windows were being installed on the lower floors. As of August 2007, the lettering on the side of the tower was finished and is topped out.

As of December 20, 2007 the Palazzo was scheduled to open at least 1,000 rooms by December 28, 2007 in preparation for the Las Vegas New Years celebration. The casino and other areas of the Palazzo opened at 7pm on Sunday, December 30, 2007, after a delay of several days due to the Clark County permitting process.
