The Hotel

The Imperial Palace was originally named the Flamingo Capri, and re-opened under that name when Ralph Engelstad, the current owner, purchased the property in 1972. Two years later, the East and North buildings were added, as well as the Shangri-la pool. Finally, in 1979, the Imperial Palace casino opened - the roof is made of traditional blue tile imported from Japan. A year later, another extention to the Imperial Palace opened: the Imperial Theatre showroom. With seating for 850, the showroom is also used for the taping of sports and entertainment specials for network and cable TV broadcasts.
Over the years, the Imperial Palace was extended even further. Here's a rundown:
  • 1981: Another 19-story tower was added with an additional 850 rooms. Also added was the Imperial Palace Auto Collection. More information on this attraction later.
  • 1982: the number of rooms was extended to 1,500.
  • 1986: Tower IV was added, increasing the number of rooms to 2100, 15,000 sq. ft. was added to the casino and the meeting and convention areas were expanded as well.
  • 1987-1989: The 3-phase expansion plan that begin in 1987 ultimately brought the Olympic size swimmingpool (with a two story waterfall, a heated spa and a poolside bar), a new 19 story tower and another casino expansion (including the satelite casino, the race and sports book, health & fitness center and an office complex to the Imperial Palace.
  • In 1992, the race and sports book featured 6 level tiered seating, doubling the previous capacity, with color monitors at every seat.
  • 1993: Last but not least, the full service medical center was opened, available not only to Imperial Palace visitors but to everyone on the Strip.back

  • Pizza Palace
    Do we need to spell it out, or had you already guest what fare to get here? Besides pizza's they also offer other Italian fare. As they open at 11am, it might be a nice lunch suggestion. For dinner reservations are suggested.
  • Teahouse
    This 24/7 coffeeshop serves breakfast, lunch and diner in a casual environment.
  • Imperial Buffet
    The buffet served in the Teahouse Coffee Shop. So, lots of foodstuffs to choose from, relatively low price (this really depends on how much you eat, doesn't it?). What's more to say?
  • Emperors Buffet
    Another buffet, open daily, with dinner featuring roast beef of baron and country ham.
  • Burger Palace
    Fast food! Burgers, fries & softdrink. I bet they wouldn't have gotten away if they had called it Burger Emperor...
  • Betty's Diner
    Open 24/7 for icecream, sundaes, sandwiches, soup and specialty coffees.back

  • Entertainment

    The main entertainment event at the Imperial Palace is the award winning 'Legends in Concert' show in the Imperial Theatre, with live recreations of Elvis Presley, The Four Tops, Ritchie Valens, Michael Jackson and The Righteous Brothers (amongst others), this is a show many people say is not to be missed.
    If impersonator-style shows are not your thing: during the summer months, the Imperial Palace also offers a pool side Hawaiian Luau, and if even that isn't what you're looking for: check out the Imperial Auto Collection with many many vintage cars on display all year round. And if you've seen it already, be sure to check it out again: they're always rotating cars - they have a lot more cars than they can display!back
