Considering that Caesars is one of the oldest themed hotels on The Strip, other, younger hotels have already given way to the new kids on the block like the Wynn and Venetian, it is still well worth a stay. Certainly, I was lucky enough to be in one of the recently refurbished towers, Octavius, and therefore I cannot speak for the others. Breathtaking, could be said of many of the hotels, however, Caesars has the edge on others in its price category.... slightly more spacious, lighter (the tendency for internal semi-darkness in Vegas can be annoying) great pool area with plenty of room for everyone. There are discreet, polite, but very present security guards to prevent people from casaully wandering towards the guest towers and thus ensure some privacy and security. Other staff are wandering the corridors greeting guests and dealing with enquiries with a pleasant manner...it is very easy to get lost and consequently a map is provided to guests on check in.
My room was huge, by the standards of the price range I am used to of around $100 a night. The bed was high enough to climb into, I felt like the Prince and the Pea, however I slept soundly. The bathroom was big enough for several people to use at once, with a shower that you could walk into. Towels, toiletries, lighting, TV were all excellent. I am well aware of the thousands of people who pass through hotel rooms and therefore am a bit more tolerant of faded carpets and scratched bedside tables than most, however, this was cleaned and maintained to an excellent standard.
A kind of breakfast was included, which meant I could spend upto $9 (I thought) on danish pastries, yogurt and coffee at a designated cafe in the hotel... it was quite a walk to get there through the casino, but good for working up a morning appetite. It transpired that my room was a double occupancy, I, a single traveller, beneffited from the breakfast allocation of 2 people and therefore had £18 to spend on breakfast each day!!!
I noticed there can be a bit of a queue to check in, especially late afternoon, however I arrived mid evening and had no problems... whilst checking out other hotels I saw horrendously long queues, many of which have already been mentioned in other reviews. Staff were efficient and courteous, always a surprise for us Europeans who are accustomed to sporadic customer service at best in hotels of this price range on our home territory. Self check-out saves time!
It may well have been the time of year, Easter, but the clientele were predominantly in the age range 18 - 30, mostly groups of young singles, some couples and a few families. Then there were the older, electric wheel chair using gamblers that seemed to be very active at 6am!
I thouroughly enjoyed it and found that it served my needs perfectly, a good base, well located, great for some down time by the pool, with a hint of glamour, Vegas style!
