The opulent entrance, fountains, Roman statuary, bas-reliefs, and roaming centurions all add up to the iconic, over-the-top Las Vegas hotel. Here you can get your picture taken with Caesar, Cleopatra, and the centurion guard; find the full-size reproduction of Michelangelo's David; or amble along Roman streetscapes in The Forum Shops to see replicas of iconic fountains from Italy. Caesars was one of the first properties in town to create rooms so lavish that guests might actually want to spend time in them. For $70 to $100 or more per night, you can book a Deluxe Room in the Octavius or Augustus towers. If you're a real big-spender (think five figures a night), book a Villa; these houselike hideaways were designed for whales but were opened for public bookings in early 2014. Another option: rooms in the elegant Nobu Hotel, a Japanese-theme hotel-within-a-hotel. The second floor of the Augustus Tower features Qua Baths & Spa, and Guy Savoy, the famous French chef's first restaurant
The shopping: Caesars has some of the best shopping of any Vegas casino resort, with more than 160 stores at The Forum and Appian Way shops.
The pools: The lavish Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis, a series of Roman-style gardens, baths, and fitness areas anchored by the Temple pool, is one of the city's best pool complexes.
The entertainment: The Colosseum presents headliners such as Elton John, Mariah Carey, and Jerry Seinfeld.
The club: With multiple levels, outdoor patios, and the best light show in town, Omnia feels like a universe of its own.
Qua Baths & Spa offers 51 treatment rooms, including wet rooms with Vichy showers and an herbal steam room. Both the men's and women's areas have Arctic ice rooms—a cold sauna where it's always 55°F.
Hair highlights are the specialty at the on-site salon, Color—a Salon by Michael Boychuck.
Men love the Men's Zone, where barber Sal Jeppi administers old-school flat-razor shaves with lather from a latherizer machine that's probably older than you are.
Dogs that weigh 50 pounds or less are welcome in certain rooms through the hotel's generous PetStay program.
