Caesars Palace : The Cougar Of The Strip

Caesars Rockchick View

The view from the room was awesome, it really couldn't be beat. We saw the Bellagio fountains go off every day and night and watched the lights turn on at dusk. Every morning the little boat went out and serviced all the fountains. It was funny watching each fountain gush after they'd been serviced. (Yeah it's supposed to sound dirty.) We could also see the mountains off to the right. It was cool waking up and seeing them covered in snow. (I've only seen snow 6 or 7 times in my entire life).

The housekeeping was one thing that really threw me for a loop. We didn't have a "Do Not Disturb" sign for our door for the first 5 days, but somehow housekeeping always knew when we weren't in our room. I don't know how, but they did. They never once knocked or barged in to see if we were there. We would just come back and our room was clean. The double doored Augustus Suite at the end of our hallway was open one day and a housekeeper saw me looking at the doors to it and offered to take me in for a tour since no one was staying in it. It was a nice suite, but I wouldn't pay $1,000 a night for it. The carpets in the hallway were shampooed twice during our week stay, they didn't need it, housekeeping just did it. Our room was spotless the entire stay, everything from the mirrors, windows, carpet, furniture, etc. were cleaned top to bottom.

We did order room service one day and it arrived on time, hot, and good. The waffles were crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle and were delicious. $52 after tip for 2 breakfasts but it was our wedding, we didn't care.

Everything on the property itself was nice. Restaurants are a little pricey, but we never ate on site, other than Serendipity 3. We were offered VIP passes to PURE on more than one occasion but didn't take them. The line was a whopping 10 people deep on a Tuesday night at midnight. We did get "drunk" one night and walked out to the pool area around 11pm. Of course it was closed but we went out there just to see it. The Venus Pool is heated and has funky lights in it that change color. I'm not telling you how I found that out.

I checked out QUA Spa one day while we were there and I was in total bliss. I'd never been to an actual spa before (other than your run of the mill strip mall day spas) so this place really impressed me. The treatment I got almost put me to sleep and the Roman baths were nice. One was scalding hot and others were about room temperature. The crazy rain shower in the middle of the Roman baths room was nice, I want the shower in my house to be like that. The arctic room was different but neat and the sauna was nice. The steam room is just a dark room. You can't see anyone else in there and the walls are black. When the loud ass generator thing came on to make more steam I honestly got a little scared being in there alone, scared like Macaulay Culkin was in Home Alone when the furnace came on in the basement. The spa was worth every dime. I was relaxed for the entire day after that.

Caesars Palace is the cougar of the Strip... 45 years old but wants to bang and hang with 25 year olds. I like this hotel. Some people will disagree and that's fine. Wynn and Encore are nice but I feel in order to fit in there, I need to have a monocle and top hat with that "Mmmmmyes..." voice to get anywhere. If hotels could talk, places like that would say "We only have the finer things here. Unless you're a millionaire that eats caviar off crystal plates, we can't go out of our way for you." Caesars is the resort that says "Hey, we're still a top tier property, we might be old, but we've still got nice stuff, we've got a bad-ass pool, and we like to party."

Would I stay at Caesars again? Definitely. People have said this place is old and trashy, I can't vouch for other towers, but ours seemed to have it going on. We did get some "these people are probably going to take my pocketbook" stares from some rich old ladies. Tattooed people can dress nice too. It's OK.

Congrats again on the wedding. Thanks for the review, look like an awesome room

Congratulations and nice room review. It sounds like they are doing a suprisingly good job of maintaining their newer rooms. Of course, the Augustus tower is a whole different world from the rest of the property. They have some really rundown rooms that might change your impression of the place.

(from the description)
"Long time VT reader RockChickX51 and her fiancee J pitched their tents..."
uh huh huh...hey beavis....

"Travel amenities included "I can't remember the name brand" shower gel, facial bar, lotion, shampoo and conditioner."

once again, reminds me of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 movie, where one character walked by a place called "Bar". One of the robots then said "oooh, i love Bar! that's where i go to get Drink and Sandwich"

@nullzero... i'm not above making the obvious dick jokes.

@Nullzero Did you ever see Monster-A-Go Go on MST3K?? The budget was so tight that the ringing noise the phones made in the movie was just some guy going "Buuurring bbuuuring" It was bad. Or the Manos:Hands of Fate movie...oh god don't even get me started.

The room was awesome! The hotel was cool. I know they do have some pretty terrible rooms on the other end, but Caesars is so far so good in my book

wow this was very impressive. i may consider staying there after reading and seeing this

Cool review, now I have to stay there once, the lovely and talented T (wife for everyone out there) has always wanted to stay there.

BTW, "I've only seen snow 6 or 7 times in my entire life", I think I hate you, we've been digging out since mid November and won't be free till March...... have fun in the sun with your beaches and humidity and stuff! Snik Snik...

That was a nice sized room for a regular room. I don't remember only having 18 channels when I was at CP in may, but I really only watch ESPN anyway. lol. Sounds like a good time was had!

I can picture myself jumping up and down on the bed like Nick Papageorgio did when he walked into his comped Suite, in Vegas Vacation. Lol.
Congrats on your wedding. Sounds like you have a super-cool time. Enjoy the fruits of marriage.

1. If you want to know why the maids knew when you two were or were not in your honeymoon room, I can sell you a copy of the DVD for $49.99 plus S&H.

2. There is a restaurant group in Hong Kong that has too-hip upscale restaurants with names like EAT, NOODLE, TABLE...etc. I don't know if says more about language skills, creativity, or intelligence.

I used Agoda for jetting around Asia. I think its Asian based.

What's up the sperm logo though on Mobbisimo...or whatever it is.

THANK YOU for summarizing in three sentences my own uneasiness with Wynncore. That is it, exactly.

The toiletries are a special line from Gilchrist and Soames. It's exclusive to Caesars.

Thanks for all the photos and congrats on the wedding.

Thanks so much for detailed review...getting 5 nights comped there in December...much to look forward to!!!
