Caesars Flickrs

Rarely does a room, or any other public space for that matter, meet the expectations set by press release photos. What you see is rarely what you get.

But every now and then, you stumble across a few extraordinary shots that offer a rare glimpse into a resort which you might otherwise never see. Such is the case with Caesars Palace's Flickr feed.

Among some of the most notable shots include the Forum Tower penthouse, famed for housing President Obama a few months ago, and pics of the Pool Villas. Even more ridiculous is this butler acting as golf caddy to a virtual simulator.

What I find most intriguing, though, are the shots that seemingly offer a blast from the past. If I may digress to say that in some respects, the 80s were the Palace's coolest era. Gold and unabashedly gaudy, before The Mirage boasted of suites with their own back yards, Caesars had freakin' laser light shows on the ceiling.

Some part of me wishes a little history was preserved and that not all the rooms were renovated to reflect what the masses saw in "The Hangover". The appearance of these shots has me hopeful.

If you've got a few minutes, the feed's worth a looky-loo.
