Rome Conquers The Strip:  Why Caesars Palace Should be on Your Las Vegas Bucket List.

Caesars Palace is one of the few hotels left from the mob influenced Vegas of the sixties that is still recognizable.  While it has been improved upon over the years, the message is still the same: While at Caesars you are a Roman Warrior worthy of opulence and luxury.  The next time you book a strip trip, pack your toga and indulge in the wonders that Caesars Palace offers.

Accommodations:  Even a standard room at Caesars includes an Ancient Roman feel with sleek chaise lounges and pillar protected balconies.  The luxury suites and villas are all themed and located within the 5 towers.  With the Laurel Collection you enjoy a private valet entrance and use of the Garden of the Gods oasis.  While the super luxurious Villas give you a large open space for entertaining guests in your private pool.  Whatever your taste and budget, you will find that your stay in the Caesars Hotel is unlike no other.

Gambling:   Yes, there have been more million dollar slot machines payoffs at Caesars than anywhere else in the world.  And of course there are gaming tables galore and a modern 250 seat sport book.  But the real betting action for the Caesars casino takes place inside of the largest poker room on the strip.  Newbies and pros are both encouraged to try their hand in this 8,500 square foot space and maybe breathe in some luck from the adjacent tournament room, which is home to all the most competitive Poker events including the famed World Series of Poker.

Dining:  Las Vegas hotels are known the world over for their decadent buffets, and Caesars does not disappoint.  The Bacchanal buffet embraces the gluttony of the Roman Empire by being catered to by 9 unique restaurants.  Less than 2 years young, this astonishing array of culinary innovations has already won best buffet nods from USA Today, the Las Vegas Review Journal, and Las Vegas weekly.  And the buffet is just the tip of the eating iceberg. Bobby Flay, Guy Savoy and Gordon Ramsey have all hung their chef hats at Caesars with their personal brand restaurants, making sure that even the hungriest gladiator is well fed.

The Shows:  How many superstars can actually boast that an entire Colosseum was built just for them?  This concert venue, originally constructed for the musical sensation Celine Dion, is now a must stop for every great performer from around the globe.  The Colosseum headlines such sensations as Elton John, Brooks & Dunn, Reba, Mariah Carey,  and of course the diva Celine Dion.  You can even get some comedic relief from Jerry Seinfeld, but if you are looking for something different try the cabaret-esque show Absinthe.  This adult only variety show can be found playing inside of the Roman Plaza.

Nightlife:  The hotel acknowledges the warrior need to party and has filled its halls with night clubs and lounges worthy of Caesar himself.  Sip champagne at Fizz or rub elbows with Hollywood VIP's at Omnia. The nightlife scene inside of Caesars Palace is as diverse as Las Vegas itself.  With themed lounges like Cleopatra’s Barge and the Seahorse Lounge, to specialty bars like Vista Cockatil Lounge, a guest at the hotel will have no trouble finding a way to kick back and enjoy the night.

Remember, pinky out when you sip champagne.

As if that isn’t enough, Caesars Palace is home to the Forum, one of the most unique shopping venues in Vegas where you can browse through high-end shops and boutiques surrounded by statues of the Roman Gods and tranquil water displays.  Afterwards let your troubles melt away in the Qua Baths & Spa, a wellness center fit for the Gods, and Goddesses.  Even the pool area is a sight to behold, with 5 unique settings for a guest to choose where to put their sun screen on.  Nothing has been overlooked in this majestic palace.

You haven’t had the true Vegas experience until you have spent time at Caesars Palace.  With every detail carefully thought out to enhance your stay, you will feel like the warrior coming home after a long, tedious battle.
