Gigantic marble statues, Roman columns, dancing fountains, a full-size reproduction of Michelangelo’s David, and roaming centurions make Caesars Palace the quintessential Vegas vacation. Set right at the center of the Strip, this mega-resort is a destination in and of itself thanks to a sprawling shopping center, award-winning restaurants and high-stakes casino culture. Nearly 4,000 guest rooms and suites fill the hotel’s six massive towers, each with its own design vision. These sleek crash pads come decked in contemporary décor, and include seating areas, luxe wood furnishings and 42-inch flat-screens. Some marble bathrooms feature walk-in showers, whirlpool tubs and LCD TVs embedded in the mirrors. The Octavius and Augustus Tower offer sweet perks like direct access to the massive pool complex and a smartphone app allowing guests to reach room service, concierge and housekeeping services with a simple tap. With six pumped-up swimming pools, 25 restaurants, two popular casinos, a bi-level nightclub and an elegant stadium that fits the egos of Elton John and Mariah Carey, this palace feels more like a city than just another resort. The 21-and-over Venus is the most exclusive of the palatial pools, an outdoor party where cocktails flow and the music gets loud. Guests in need of a bit more zen should opt for an in-cabana massage at the Jupiter Pool. Michelin-starred restaurants such as French masterpiece Guy Savoy and the boutiques of The Forum Shops complete the resort’s upscale atmosphere.
In the Area
Serene natural trails in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area feel a world away from the Vegas gimmicks. Master your camera settings and shoot close-ups of tarantulas and scorpions. Or check out the Hoover Dam. Built more than 70 years ago, it’s still a wonder at 726 feet high, 1,244 feet long and 660 feet thick. Adrenaline junkies can get their fix with an exhilarating zipline glide through Bootleg Canyon Park, 45 minutes southeast of town. Commune with the ghosts of Vegas past with a visit to the Neon Boneyard, a collection of Sin City’s old glowing signs.
How to Get There
I upgraded to Octavia Suite and they tried to charge me $129 a night instead of the $90 per night upgrade that was in their original offer communication. Eventually, this was straightened out by the very nice front desk woman.
The room and service were great except for two troubling things:
We were at the pool on 9/15 and tried to order a drink at about 4 pm at the pool bar (which said they are open until 5 pm) Instead, an incredibly RUDE bartender sniped at us and said: "we have a big event tonight and have to get ready to "you cant have any drinks." We pointed out that the sign said they were open until 5, and he told my boyfriend "well, not tonight buddy." RUDE!
And, when i tried to use the express check out kiosk, i was redirected by an employee to go to a particular line to check out. Once I got to the employee at the desk he told me that "You are in the wrong line, this is for key drop off.". When I said that i was directed to go in the line, he said, "well, i can help you this time, but next time you need to wait with everyone else trying to check out. And, he was VERY unfriendly. That kind of ruined it for me and I will choose another resort in the future because of this mistreatment. Mr Chow was great, however, and I highly recommend the restaurant.
The overall experience at Caesars palace was wonderful, but a little overpriced. The tables seemed a little expensive and there were no penny games on the floor. The overall view of the casino and the pool area is very aesthetic. The buffet was great but not quite worth the price of $65 a person.
Just back from yet another great stay. Caesars hasn’t disappointed me yet and we’ve been going here exclusively for 3 years now. Staff always fresh. Rooms are always good. Great restaurants, shopping, night life.
