When it comes to Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace, it’s safe to say that its reputation precedes it. The moment you walk through its grand front doors, it will amaze you with its unrivalled opulence and grandeur – but, after 54 years, is it still the best casino hotel in the world?
In recent years, Sin City has seen a flurry of newer, bigger – and, in some opinions, better – modern casino resorts popping up along the city’s famous strip. And, with other destinations around the world now giving Vegas a serious run for its money when it comes to offering up the most tempting luxury casino accommodation – from Macau to London – there is now more competition than ever before.
But nonetheless, this historic and iconic hotel, located at the heart of Las Vegas’ dazzling bright lights has managed to retain an allure all of its own.
Jamie Dodd at Bingosites.co.uk – which has just added a range of new sites for 2020 to its listings – says: “There is just something about Caesars Palace that has always set it apart from the competition, making it one of the few casino resorts that has truly stood the test of time. Of course, the high-end luxury and excellent service that is evident throughout all aspects of the hotel and guest stay play a huge part in this, but the real star of the show is the casino.”
And, he’s not wrong.
This unique establishment brings you all of the glitz, glamour and excitement you’d expect from one in the casino capital of the world, but its unique ancient Roman feel sets it well apart from the masses. Having long been a playground for the rich and famous, here you can enjoy a range of adrenaline-fuelled slots and table games, from roulette to poker, blackjack to baccarat – all whilst rubbing shoulders with high-rollers and local celebrities alike. The Caesars Palace Casino certainly doesn’t do things by halves, and with an exciting race and sports book and lavish surroundings, it’s a charmed place to spend an evening whilst you’re visiting this electrifying city.
If you’re looking for sophistication, you won’t have to look very far and with 4,000 luxurious guest rooms located across 6 towers, this sizeable resort is a hive of activity, year-round. Even so, its rooms offer unrivalled opulence, with beautiful, hand-picked soft furnishings featuring throughout and pristine marble bathrooms, flat-screen TVs and WiFi access making a comfortable stay a certainty.
Many of the rooms have been renovated in recent years, too – so despite this being a historic hotel, much of it has been brought well up to date. Even so, it still retains its ancient Roman feel – though perhaps with a little more polish than before.
With a range of dining options available, the Caesars Palace Casino Hotel is a mecca for foodies, with choices including cuisine cooked up by celebrity chefs like Gordon Ramsay, Guy Savoy and Nobu Matsuhisa. The Old Homestead Steakhouse is an all-round favourite, and the latest incarnation of the New York favourite of the same name. Its dark, sultry décor and wooden interiors make for a cosy evening’s dining – and, we have to admit, the food is pretty good, too.
The hotel is also home to the world’s first ever Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen restaurant – a must visit during your stay. Meanwhile, Pronto by Giada serves up classic Italian fare with a Californian twist, whilst Restaurant Guy Savoy offers that sought-after fine dining experience with a menu of delectable French cuisine.
Of course, at a hotel resort of this size, you’ll understand that this is just a taster of what’s on offer. Here, the range of dining options is something truly impressive – stay for a week, and you still won’t get through them all.
The 4,100-seat Colosseum at Caesars Palace attracts world-class entertainers from across the globe, often featuring the likes of megastars such as Elton John, Rod Stewart and Celine Dion. Omnia nightclub is also worth a visit after dark – a great place to enjoy a cocktail or two, but be sure to wear those designer dancing shoes.
By day, when you’re not out exploring the city, there is plenty to do on-resort. With a range of pools and cabanas to make your way around, plus a golf course, Qua spa and much more, the leisure and entertainment offerings at the Caesars Palace Hotel are truly second to none.
54 years on, there’s still nowhere quite like the Caesars Palace Hotel – in Las Vegas, or beyond. For a truly authentic casino experience and service and facilities that are second to none, it’s the finest spot to stay for the ultimate casino getaway.
