The Magazine's Annual "World's Best Awards" Survey Is Completed by Hotel Guests

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - August 19, 2010) - The Palazzo Las Vegas has been named as one of the Top 50 Hotels in the Continental U.S. and Canada in the Travel + Leisure 2010 World's Best Awards readers' poll featured in the magazine's August 2010 issue and on TravelandLeisure.com/worldsbest. The Palazzo came in at number 18 among Large City Hotels (100 rooms or more) in the region and was the highest ranked property in Las Vegas, widely regarded as the resort capital of the world. The awards are handed down following a survey completed by magazine's readers. The World's Best Awards hotel rankings are based on readers' ratings in five categories: room/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food, and value.

"We are very proud that The Palazzo made Travel + Leisure's World's Best Awards list of Top Hotels in the Continental U.S. and Canada for 2010 and ranked first among Las Vegas Hotels," said Rob Goldstein, president and COO of The Palazzo and The Venetian. "The fact that this award is generated from the magazine's readers and our guests shows the public recognizes the quality of The Palazzo -- which is a true testament to our dedicated staff."

Guests not only enjoy the scope and quality of luxury that is offered at The Palazzo, they have come to expect it.
