Caesars Palace Review
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 the robotic Fall of Atlantis show. Caesars was one of the first properties in town to create rooms so lavish that guests might actually want to spend time in them; today the rooms are as sumptuous as any on the Strip. For $70 to $100 or more per night, guests can book a Deluxe Room in the Octavius or Augustus towers; these rooms have marble-and-brass bathrooms with oversize whirlpool tubs. Another option: Rooms in the (underwhelming) Nobu Hotel, a Japanese-themed hotel-within-a-hotel that opened in early 2013. The second floor of the Augustus Tower features Qua Baths & Spa and Guy Savoy, the famous French chef's first restaurant outside Paris.
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 best pool spots in town. In summer, topless sunbathing is available at the private Venus pool.
The entertainment: Shows at the new Colosseum are second to none, attracting headliners such as Celine Dion, Shania Twain, and Jerry Seinfeld.
The technology : Rooms in the circa-2012 Octavius Tower and circa-2013 Nobu Hotel have their own app for guests to connect with hotel services via Smartphone.
Hands down, the main attraction for Caesars guests is Qua Baths & Spa. For massages, the facility 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.
As the name suggests, 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 PetStay program. Amenities for these guests include food dishes, disposable waste bags and dog treats.
