Caesars Palace Las Vegas Overview
All Hail! Caesars Palace is an upscale, talismanic hotel and a true icon of the Vegas resort scene. The 3,954-room property has been the symbol of Sin City’s opulence and kitsch since it first opened in 1966. As the name suggests, its theme is based on Julius Caesar’s Rome, complete with the marble goddesses, Roman gods, and columns, as well as toga-wearing waiters on the casino floor. Everything here is lavish and exudes an air of excess, from the colossal casino and classic architecture to a huge spa with exquisite treatments and Roman baths.
While standard rooms feel old and are small by Vegas standards, they are elegant, nonetheless, and feature desks, marble bathrooms with walk-in showers, toiletries, hairdryers, and coffee makers. Caesars Palace Hotel offers a raft of well-known dining options, ranging from a noodle spot to a stellar steakhouse. And with a sprawling casino, shopping at Forum Shops, a full roster of live events, and more, entertainment at Caesars Palace isn’t too shabby either.

Rooms & Suites at the Caesars Palace Las Vegas
There are some 3,954 guest rooms at Caesar Palace Las Vegas spread across six hotel towers, namely Octavius, Laurel Collection, Palace, Nobu, Forum, and Julius. They vary immensely in terms of size, price point, quality, and of course, amenities. The wallet-friendly Julius tower houses the classic rooms, which are a bit more subdued and smaller by Las Vegas norms, but they’re comfortable, feel contemporary, and are packed with modern amenities, including Keurig coffee makers.
These base-level rooms feature sizeable marble-floored bathrooms with double sinks, walk-in showers, and toiletries. Other in-room amenities at the hotel include headboards with custom upholstery, well-stocked mini-bars, flat-screen TVs, hairdryers, and more.
For these reasons, they’re perfect for guests who want to be in the middle of the scene, as the tower is nestled in the heart of the resort and nearest to the sprawling casino.
Starting at 648 square feet and 525 square feet respectively, rooms in the Laurel Collection and Palace tower are substantially more spacious and feature deep soaking tubs with jets in the marble-floored bathrooms.
The Octavius tower room type comes in the form of large suites and villa styles, starting at 550 square feet. They feature work desks, sitting lounges, large flat-screen TVs, and king-size beds with plush and super-comfy bedding.

Caesars Palace Review:
The 3,954-room Caesar Palace is a classic Vegas hotel casino resort and the epitome of extravagance, sporting a sprawling casino, huge spa with three Roman baths, multiple pools, and one of Vegas’ biggest casinos. The standard options are smaller by Sin City norm, they’re attractive, comfortable, and feature the latest coffeemakers, toiletries, and hair dryers.
The real treat is the choice of dining options that range from noodle dens and a delicious buffet to a stellar steakhouse. Entertainment options abound here, including nightclubs with major DJs and a theater headlined by well-known comedians, musicians, performers, etc. While the casino isn’t as flashy as the ones at the Venetian or the Bellagio, it’s fancier than the casino at the Flamingo and offers the same experience as the one at Mandalay Bay.
