Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel and Casino is the pride and joy of the CET (Caesars Entertainment) group and is currently the highest rated CET Casino (ahead of Paris, Cromwell, Ballys, Flamingo, Linq & Harrahs). The decor of the property is elegant and luxurious with a strong Roman influence. The hotel and casino has been in business since opening in the late summer of 1966. Building of the hotel and property, however, began four years earlier in 1962. Business entrepreneur Jay Sarno originally conceptualized the casino.
Too many Towers!
Most will find Caesars too big and quite confusing. Caesars Palace has 6 different towers with close to 4,000 guest rooms. Some towers are nice and some are very old and stuck in a time warp (yes roman tower, we are looking at you!) Of course that are also spacious guest suites if you have a high budget.
Here is a breakdown, with the newest tower first:
- Octavius Tower – The nicest and newest tower. Many prefer the Augustus over the octavius, but they are both equally nice. Rooms are 550 square feet.
- Augustus Tower – Newer tower with bigger rooms. Better view and closer to the strip than the octavius tower. Rooms are 650 square feet and even # rooms get a view of the Bellagio fountains.
- Palace Tower – Nice modern rooms at a good price. Rooms are 525 square feet and don’t really have much of a view.
- Forum Tower – Closest to the Casino and newly remodeled. Clean and decent rooms, but nothing too exciting. Rooms are 475 square feet.
- Roman Tower – Don’t stay in this tower. Haven’t been touched since 1995 and even includes the old box style TVs. Staying in a crappy room just to stay at Caesars is not worth it and could ruin your stay. These are not Caesar quality rooms and I would expect a remodel of this tower very soon.. Rooms are 350 square feet.
Some of the perks that are available at the hotel concierge are tour, cabana, show and dining reservations, nanny and childcare service, floral arrangements and even golf requests for nearby Rio Secco and Cascata. Guests of the hotel who have basic questions can also rely on the concierge to provide them with reliable and accurate information.
The casino is one of the most popular gambling spots in all of Las Vegas, with a vast assortment of table games and slot machines. Some examples of the many table games that are available in the casino include roulette, craps, blackjack, pai gow poker, baccarat, three card poker and pai gow tiles. Some examples of the many slot machines that are available include reel machines, video poker and video reels. People who wish to bet on horse races can also stop by the Race & Sports Book center, which consists of 65 private booths in total.
The vast hotel is home to a number of high-quality dining opportunities for guests and visitors alike. Guests can dine on everything from Italian cuisine and Japanese fare to classic steak and Chinese noodles.
