Why is Caesar's Palace So Bloody Expen$ive???

For the first week & weekend in June, CP's cheapest, unrenovated room is pricier than Bellagio and many other center-strip hotels.

Any way to find out if there's a convention there that week or something? I'm certainly not wedded to staying there--especially since Bellagio is a better grade and Flamingo is just as convenient and almost half the price.

But I was curious.

Do you get your own Centurion when you check in or something? Do they drive you from the lobby to the Strip in a chariot?

I've wanted to stay at Caesars for a long time since it is my luckiest casino, but their rates truly ARE absurd. I think Harrah's just had to designate "something" as their Flagship (with the corresponding overpriced rooms), and Caesars was it.

I don't get why their prices stay high either.

I never wanted to stay there, just not one of my favorite casinos. Just my opinion. But, I too don't get the high prices compared to other hotels.

It might be the private swimming pools in each room... yeah right :0)

Recently checked their rates for June 16-20; 4 nights in a Forum, Palace, or Augustus tower room is ~$1,600... without any money spent on airfare, car rental, food/drink, gambling, etc. Truly absurd...

Caesars is nice but it's way overpiced. I stayed there for a great price last year and I'm glad I didn't pay more.

I stayed there for a song, once upon a time ago.

Now, I shall vote with my wallet and shake my fist at these so-called Gods, for I am neither Croesus nor Mammon when it comes to the lucre.

I'm also going to blow raspberries at the Palace from my room across the street. So there.

I have always wanted to stay at Caesar's but it has always been sooo much more even when compared to Bellagio. I guess when I hit it just right and it is the same price as the other hotels I consider then I will stay there.

TheLilyBean, do you have a history with Harrah's properties? If you have a players card, have you signed into their website to see if you could get a cheaper rate with your card? I just played on there with June 1-6 (5 nights) and was quoted $1,375 in either the Deluxe Palace rooms or the Augustus Tower rooms when I didn't sign in with my players card number. I ran it, again, after signing in and the same period for the same rooms was $820. My husband's was not a very big difference from the base cost at $1,175, but it was still a difference.

Even at that, I would not book without calling Caesars and asking to speak to someone in VIP services. Ask them to check your play history and see what they can do for you. True, Caesars is my hotel of choice and where I have stayed the last several visits. I have not always been in the best of their rooms, but have never had great complaints (well, the bathroom without a door was a bit of a problem for me).

The Harrah's website will quote you one figure without signing in and more than likely another when you sign in, but the casino hosts have a little more to go on than what the computer spits out.

Good luck!
