Caesars Palace Augustus Towers Opens

For nearly five years, Caesars Palace has operated amid construction walls inside and out as projects aimed at transforming the tired theme property into a premier, upscale resort took shape.

At 5 a.m. this morning, the last of those walls came down as Harrah's Entertainment Inc. opened the Palace's 949-room Augustus hotel tower at the corner of Flamingo Road and Las Vegas Boulevard.

The tower, which also includes a 24-hour cafe, two retail stores, a VIP lounge and three wedding chapels to replace a single indoor chapel, caps off a process that began in 2003 when previous owner Caesars Entertainment opened the 4,100-seat Colosseum Theater.

Since then the property has added a new convention area, two celebrity-chef restaurants and additional casino space with a bar, retail store and nightclub. A poker room and the addition of other table games are under way in the casino while a hotel spa and Guy Savoy restaurant -- named for a three-star Michelin chef with a namesake eatery in Paris -- will open several months from now in the Augustus tower.
