Trip Report 4/19 - 4/22 Caesars

Our group was me and my husband and 8 of our friends all from Southern CA..... we all go to Vegas a few times per year.

Thursday:

Our short flight from LA was on time in Vegas at 11am. Got a cab and arrived at Caesars pretty quick around 11:30am. Went to check in to see if a room was ready.......it was. We had booked the deal for the Palace tower for $180 per night.....great deal!!!

*I had called beforehand to tell them it was husbands 30th Bday just to put it out there.*

They didn't mention it, and said they couldn't upgrade us because of the deal we got. No biggie, just wanted to check. Got a room with a north strip view on the 24th floor. Other side faces pool and bellagio but they didn't have any rooms there.

Rooms are very nice. Nice comfortable bed, plasma tv, huge windows, huge bath with shower and spa tub, walk in closet safe, very clean and modern. They have internet but its around $15 per day. Also they have a mini bar and extras that you can buy.

Thur afternoon we hang out at Caesars drank and played slots. Ate a quick bite at the food court, played some more. Once the sun came out hung out at the pool and ordered some *expensive* drinks. $19 for a mojito!

Thur night got dressed up and hit the clubs.

10pm: Went to Voodoo on top of Rio. Really cool view (one of the best in Vegas) club and lounge. They had an bikini fashion show so there was a cover of $20 even around 10 on a weeknight. Club was cool but if you are a single guy I wouldn't go....crowd was about 90% single men. Bonus for us was we never had an empty drink. :)

1:00am took a cab to Palms and went to Moon (playboy club) $20 cover. Cool nightclub, big dance floor go go dancers, nice rooftop patio (pretty much the same view from voodoo).

3:00am walked over to Ghostbar (one price for moon /ghost) cool view (same as the other 2) not a nightclub with dancing, just a lounge.

4:00am went down and gambled and drank some more.....next thing we knew it was almost 6 in the morning. Pretty wild fun Vegas night.

6:00am got back to Caesars and ordered room service for $60 ate and passed out.

Friday

9:00am: the rest of our friends flew in from LA and called to wake us up.....not really feeling like getting up but we do. They were too early for check in so they came up to our room. We finally got ourselves together for the most part and headed out for some lunch hoping to get rid of the hangover.

Went across the street to Margaritaville. Cool place drinks /food are really low priced. We all ate and started drinking margaritas....you have to its margaritaville.

Around 12pm went to Osheas and played craps for a few hours.

3pm we were so mad that it was cloudy and cold on fri (we wanted to hang out by the pool) so we decided to hit the hot tubs. Hung out there for a while.

6pm Went out and got some sushi at ....can't remember the place. The restaurant in Caesars across from Cleopatras lounge. Sushi was not great not bad just ok. Price wasn't bad at all so I wasn't expecting it to be the best ever.

Went back to the room to get dressed up for the night.

10pm met at PURE at Caesars. (my friend works for pure so we were on the guest list) Went up to VIP entrance with my 9 guests. Waited about 5 mins because they were just opening. All of us got in with no cover, but it was around $30 I think. Hung out at PURE and watched the Pussycat dolls perform. Went out to the rooftop and enjoyed the view. (best on strip view of the strip in Vegas). PURE is the place to be for single men, mostly all beautiful women, nice classy place.

Once your hands stamped you can come and go out of PURE so around midnight we went out and gambled at the Pussycat dolls casino....the girls are dealers and they have poll dancers in the middle of the room. (big hit with all the guys) Won a little so we spent it on what else more dinks!!!!

Ended up hanging out at PURE and gambling back and forth until 6am again. Head up to the room and passed out.

Saturday:

Woke up around 9am again and noticed it looked hot and sunny. Called everyone and set up camp at the pool area. I was really feeling the all night way too much too drink partying for 2 nights but the pool and sun and lots of water seem to cure it really fast. :)

We ate lunch from the pool snack bar and started drinking....stayed out until around 3pm.

3pm: Went in to gamble a bit.....Won $200 on a $1 WOF slot, ended up spending it playing some other slots. Then went back up to get dressed up for our last night.

9pm: We all had reservations for Palm in the forum shops. Food was really good had some steak and wine.

12am: Hung out and gambled and drank at the lounges and sports bar at Caesars.....(we were supposed to go to Tangerine at TI but didn't make it). Vegas really was catching up quick so we decided to call it an early night at around 3am. :)

Sunday:

10am: Finally got some much needed sleep, hung out in the room, got ready and pack it up.

11am: Checked out and checked our bags. Oh yeah note to self, don't pick up the "romance pack" several times and look at it. We were charged for it 4 times, they have sensors. The check out guy had a good laugh on that one and took off the charges.

12pm: Walked around the strip and checked out all the close hotels (Mirage, TI, Wynn, Venitian, Bellagio, Paris, Aladdin, IP, Flamingo). Then went shopping at the Forum shops at Caesars.

5pm: Got our bags in a taxi and went to the airport, flight was at 7pm. I had heard the airport was crazy on a Sun night and it was, we didn't clear security and get to our gate until 6:30pm only to find out our flight was delayed until 9pm. Not fun at all....

Ended up flying out at 9:30pm, landed at 10:30pm was home around 11pm and fast asleep.

An overall great trip to Vegas!!

Nice report, sunflowerz. I admire your ability to function on 3 hrs. sleep. We do not do the lounge scene, but love Caesars and have stayed there 4 or 5 times.

Sweetsherry, the romance package is a little more (ahem) intimate than a wrapped drink in the frig. As a matter of fact, it is not refrigerated at all. Caesars has a selection of things, including golf balls, chocolates in a gift box that looks like a Roman column, and personal items, in the room that you can purchase.

Can hardly wait to return. Hopefully in October.
