“A ghost of its past”
Reviewed 29 March 2009

Coasting on a very yesteryear Las Vegas reputation, this now soulless edifice is like a ride at Disneyland that's had its day. Though the rooms are clean and comfortable provided one stays in only one of three towers Augustus,Palace or Forum (forget the rest-they are junk rooms) this once great casino is ludicrously overpriced for every little thing. ($14.95 for internet service for 24 hours, room charge of $8 for a slice of toast and a cup of coffee plus a $5.00 room charge plus 18% gratuity...etc) It is now only worth a quick walk through to ogle at the over the top excesses in decoration. Restaurants on the whole have become mediocre with only perhaps Bradley Ogden as the lone standout. Guy Savoy has a restaurant there where the set menu is $290.00 per person which in this economy sounds a tad over the top. Forget playing there as every machine and table game is outfitted with terrible odds stacked against you. In its day Caesar's Palace had charm in its gaudiness and its atmosphere was exciting. Now it is just aggressively tacky. As an example I wanted to purchase a local newspaper in one of the gift shops only to be told that none carry the local paper anymore. When I asked why, the lady behind the counter told me she had heard that management didn't want their customers to read about the much better and more reasonable offers that were to be had elsewhere in terms of food and entertainment. One can get a much better experience for the same or less money on the strip at Wynn's,The Venetian or the Palazzo where true luxury reigns as opposed to the ersatz luxury of Caesar's Palace.

We booked a 3 night stay from Tuesday to Friday, between March Madness games. We were able to get an amazing rate using a promo code tip from the Fatwallet forums at $75 a night for a Classic Room. I had read plenty of reviews saying that these rooms were horrible, but we never found out. We asked for an upgrade at the desk, received a Palace Tower room at no extra charge and tipped the clerk $20!

The Palace Tower room was great for us, lots of space to spread out, which is a real luxury compared to your standard hotel rooms. The bathroom had two sinks, a separate shower and a jetted tub. Even though the elevators for this room seem to be a mile away from the strip, it was nice to step off the elevator and be right at the pool area.

We lounged by the pool 3 of the 4 days we were there. Lots of construction going on, but definitely a nice pool area. My only complaint may be that the drink and food service poolside was spotty at best...there was only one girl working the pool....just too many people for one person to serve.

We wandered the hotel and saw the casino area and all the shops, which was impressive, but I can shop at home and we are pretty low-rollers, so we gambled elsewhere.

We joined the Players Club which got us two $20 meal vouchers for the buffet. We ate there for breakfast one morning. My husband thought it was amazing, I thought it was fine. I don't know if it would be my choice if we were paying for it, but for free it was great.

Great location, centered on the strip. We would definitely stay here again, especially if we could get such a great rate again.

My wife and another couple all stayed at this hotel. We booked rooms with king sized beds and upon arrival there were no more rooms availble with king bed so we were all stuck with doubles which effected our comfort a little bit. We also found the room service to be slow and the service on the casino floor and lounges was lacking a bit. They did upgrade us from a classic room to suites at no cost which was nice and the rooms, although a little out of date, were kept clean. If I were to stay there again, I would phone ahead to be sure I get the accommodations I requested.

Hi everyone,

I stayed at Caesars on the 19th March for three nights as part of a stag night (batchelor party) we had already upgraded to the Palace tower with our travel agent however I did tip the check in guy $20 and this worked in the fact that our room went from been ready in two hours to "its ready now sir". Apart from been totally blown away by Vegas this hotel exceeded all our expectations. The staff were always polite, the place spotless and the location is fantastic. I cannot recommend this hotel enough, one thing I have decided is that I will be returning and I think that says it all! VIVA!
By the way we flew with BMI from Manchester in economy, Never again, staff looked unapproachable, food & drinks at a minimum frequency. Ive flown across the atlantic with Virgin, BA , First Choice & My Travel and they are all far far better.
If you get chance go on the helicopters to the grand canyon its an amazing trip!

We stayed here for our honeymoon and the location and hotel itself were brilliant and could not be faulted. We had a room in the forum tower, which meant no views but a lovely, sleek, comfortable and affordable room. The one thing i will say is that currently, esp for british travellers, it is very very expensive in Las Vegas. For example a beer and vodka-lemonade cost us $17! in the hotel. We ate at the cypress market, Trevi restaurant and Susji Roku in the forum shops and enjoyed all of our meals- a little odd to be ordering a glass of wine rather than a bottle. All in all a fantastic stay.

Beautiful rooms. The bathroom was larger than some hotel rooms I've stayed in. Personally I hate Las Vegas and only go there for business. But Caesar's does make the trip enjoyable. It's a great hotel and the rooms are amazing.

Check in was easy. Room available without waiting. Room was VERY NICE with a view of the fountains at Bellagio. Something to be seen at night. Caesars was crowded with March Madness people. Normal hotel service was good. Had dinner at Bejing Noodle company. Service was POOR at best. Food was good. Lunch at BObby Flays Mesa....AWESOME as ususal and the bartender EFREM is great. BEST MOJITOs in the planet.
