Caesars Palace Julius Tower
The VegasTripping Review 2016
Announced in fall 2015 and opened in spring 2016, the new Julius Tower at Caesars Palace is the latest (and last) piece of Las Vegas' grand dame to be completely renovated. The Julius (formerly Roman) tower joins the recently renovated Palace, Forum, Nobu (formerly Centurian), Augustus and Octavius hotel towers at Caesars Palace. With MGM Resorts International's anti-customer policies threatening the concept of hospitality, the completion of hotel renovations at Caesars Entertainment's flagship property Caesars Palace could not come at a better time.
Thankfully for Las Vegas tourists, the rooms in Caesars Palace's Julius tower are not only fantastic, they are being cradled by one of the best hotel managers in the business - Ramesh Sadhwani, former operations executive at with Four Seasons and Wynn Resorts.
I booked and paid for this room via Agoda.com, where I found a competitive nightly rate of $198.86, tax inclusive. Upon check in, I was charged an additional nightly resort fee of $32.48. As of this writing, access to the self-parking garage at Caesars Palace is free. After a short walk from my self-parked rental car, I arrived at the hotel lobby to fine a group of automated check in kiosks. Oooh! Technology!
A sign out front told me to get out my drivers license, credit card and confirmation number.
Let's give it a shot.
I placed my drivers license in the slot as directed and removed my hands.
The progress meter spun. And spun. And spun. Eventually...
I tried it two more times with the same results. Figuring it was a machine error, I hopped over to the next kiosk.
Another failure... off to the front desk.
