Just as Rome wasn't built in a day, Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas Strip continues to reinvent itself and redefine luxury. Built in 1966, the hotel-casino never falls behind the times and instead raises the bar for what visitors can expect when they travel to Las Vegas. Ultimate party seekers will find plenty of hot nightspots at the resort. Flair bartenders and sexy silhouetted dancers keep the energy going at Shadow bar while guests can literally rock the boat at Cleopatra's Barge by grooving atop a water-soaked barge, flanked by a trademark topless Egyptian goddess statue. Or for something a bit more subdued, unwind with a drink at the Seahorse Lounge while enjoying an impressive aquarium with actual sea horses. Fizz Las Vegas, an elegant lounge and bar designed in coordination with Elton John's partner David Furnish, serves high-end Champagnes complemented by exquisite eats like caviar and charcuterie plates. The nightlife at Caesars Palace makes for the perfect after-party to a show by one of the resort's esteemed headliners -- Elton John, Rod Stewart and Shania Twain (closing Dec. 13, 2014), to name just a few -- at the 4,100-seat Colosseum. The creative and irreverent show "Absinthe" is all the rage in Las Vegas these days. Geared to adults, it features a crazy cast of circus-style performers led by the lewdest ringmaster (a.k.a., The Gazillionaire) imaginable. Matt Goss, a British singer/songwriter, performs a mix of Rat Pack-era standards with his own music in The Gossy Room at Cleopatra's Barge. He's backed by a nine-piece band and The Dirty Virgins dancers.  As home to the first celebrity chef in Las Vegas, (Wolfgang Puck at Spago in The Forum Shops at Caesars), the resort remains meticulous in the restaurants it introduces on property, bringing only the finest of dining, such as the Southwestern cuisine of chef Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill and the home-style Italian eats of Rao's. James Beard award-winning chef Michel Richard is at the helm of Central, a casual yet stylish eatery with an indoor dining room, bar and outdoor terrace. The Bacchanal Buffet is a 25,000-square-foot homage to eating created by a team of chefs. The Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill has a grill section featuring fine dishes like whole brick-press Cornish chicken and a pub section serving 36 beers on tap and favorites like shepherd's pie and fish and chips.The Old Homestead Steakhouse is one of several historic New York eateries housed at Caesars Palace. Known for its signature Texas-size slabs of porterhouse, sirloin and filet mignon and whale-size lobster, the restaurant also boasts menu items created especially for Vegas visitors along with an award-winning wine list. Like Old Homestead, Serendipity 3 has made its way out West from the East Coast -- and brought its famous Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, which is a chilly, frothy blend of 20 different kinds of chocolates, as well. In early 2015, the London institution Mr Chow, which is known for its authentic Beijing cuisine and European-style service, will come to Caesars Palace.For a truly unique dining experience, savor the French cuisine of the charming Payard Pâtisserie & Bistro. Payard features an adjoining chocolate shop with a crepe station and an assortment of chocolate delights. The shop reopens late in the evenings with a dessert tasting menu -- about the next best thing to being fed grapes from the vine.If shopping (rather than chocolate) is the indulgence in need of satisfying, there are more than 160 choices (and even more restaurants) in The Forum Shops at Caesars, as well as a hallway of 15 high-end stores between the casino and pool called the Appian Way Shops.The legendary casino itself suits the tastes of high-rollers, celebrities or anyone with cash to spend. The race & sports book is open and inviting with huge screens broadcasting all of the sporting action. In a private enclave off the casino floor is Las Vegas' largest poker room, measuring 14,000 square feet. The non-smoking room includes 29 live tables in the main area. The decor is fit for an art gallery with vintage LeRoy Neiman paintings and iconic images by sports photographer Neil Leifer, including his famous shot of boxer Muhammad Ali's 1965 victory over Sonny Liston (more can be seen in the Neil Leifer Gallery on the casino level of the Augustus Tower). Players at Caesars are treated like champions, with tableside food service and massages.The rooms in Caesars Palace are as spacious and lavish as any palace accommodations should be, with marble bathrooms and several amenities among the top-rate offerings. The Laurel Collection, located in the hotel's 952-room Augustus and 668-room Octavius towers, provides an even more elevated guest experience. In addition to spacious floor plans, pillow-top mattresses, plush linens and an exclusive hotel app (that allows direct communication with concierge), The Laurel Collection boasts a private valet entrance, an exclusive registration desk and a dedicated service staff. Nobu Hospitality Group owned by celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa has opened the boutique Nobu Hotel inside Caesars Palace as well. The luxury property features 181 rooms (including 18 suites) designed to embrace comfortable simplicity and utilize natural materials. Marrying Eastern vigor with Western comfort, guests will enjoy amenities such as a welcome tea service, plush Italian linens and bathrooms with lovely walk-in showers, teak furnishings and ceramic basins. The world's largest Nobu Restaurant and Lounge, spanning 12,775 square feet, is located on the ground floor.Caesars Palace had also added a ballroom facility and five swimming pools to its eight-pool five-acre Garden of the Gods pool complex. Patio seating for Rao's, an award-winning Southern Italian restaurant from New York's East Harlem, overlooks the pools. Rao's also has an indoor patio resembling New York's Jefferson Park with seating that spills over into a common area surrounding a fountain. Located near the convention rooms and a slight distance from any gaming, the common area provides the ideal atmosphere for hotel guests to relax, enjoy a cup of coffee or read the newspaper.Located just off the lobby, the Augustus Tower features French chef Guy Savoy's restaurant, two VIP lounges with private check-in for high-end players, three indoor wedding chapels, the relaxing Qua Baths & Spa and boisterous salon by celebrity stylist Michael Boychuck, all hold court here.From the moment guests pass the majestic fountain at the front of Caesars Palace, it is clear that all roads lead to Rome. The hotel has paved a solid legacy as a world-class destination for dining, gambling, shopping, service, entertainment and nightlife.-- Staff Report

Nice location, great pool, limited food choices
PostedSeptember 27, 2014
My only issue with Caesar's Palace was the food court was under construction, and completely closed. This food court was actually a big part of of why I chose Caesar's. The other decent Strip hotels seem to offer only higher end food options that don't interest me. There was, of course, no mention of this on their website. They have a history of this with me, too. A year ago I bought Elton John tix for my mother and aunt from Texas. They flew in, and didn't find out the show was canceled until arriving at the show. They could have informed people on the website, called people, or emailed people. But they did nothing because they still wanted people to come to the casino.

Discover the charm of the tropics -- with opportunities for both relaxation and partying (like a star!) -- at The Mirage in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. A Polynesian paradise with a contemporary collection of restaurants, bars, nightclubs and shows, this is one of the premier resorts in the city.Aspiring to provide guests the best of all amenities, The Mirage never allows itself to become dated -- even though it opened in 1989. The property boasts 1 Oak Las Vegas, a celebrity-studded nightclub. Imported from New York City, it's become one of the spots to gather and get down in town. At 1 Oak Las Vegas, you'll find 16,000 square feet of high-tech space that encompasses two separate rooms, each housing a bar and DJ booth. Boasting the hottest dance music around, the good times roll all night long and well into the morning here.For more than five years, the The Beatles "LOVE" by Cirque du Soleil has been packing audiences into its circular, custom-built theater. There they are wowed not only by the music, which comes from the legendary group's original recordings, but also by imaginative props and costumes that defy description. With high-definition video projections as well, the show is a visual and aural feast.The Mirage has all bases covered in terms of entertainment. Guests of any age will delight in ventriloquist Terry Fator's antics with his collection of puppets -- characters like the beloved Winston the Impersonating Turtle. And the hotel has hit the humor jackpot, thanks to the ongoing Aces of Comedy series. It brings such illustrious comedians as Jay Leno, Ray Romano, Kevin James and Daniel Tosh to the property during the year.Smooth-as-silk ladies men Boyz II Men bring Motownphilly melodies to life every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the Terry Fator Theatre.The dining experiences offered at The Mirage are also illustrious. Within a matter of steps, you'll pass by world-class eateries including Japonais by chefs Jun Ichikawa and Gene Kato, Stack Restaurant & Bar by chef Brian Massie and Portofino featuring a variety of Italian culinary delights. At Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak, the renowned New York chef focuses on preparing meats over open flames in either wood-burning ovens or on charcoal grills. Go ahead...try and choose -- as they are all delicious! In late 2014, look for Morimoto Las Vegas. It will feature the contemporary cuisine and signature sushi of Masaharu Morimoto, the star of Food Network's "Iron Chef America."Plus, additional restaurants are tucked into every corner of The Mirage. Open to the casino, the smells coming from Samba, the Brazilian steakhouse that serves rodizio-style meals, will make your mouth water. For a sandwich stuffed beyond imagination, head to the Carnegie Deli. The Pantry is a 24-hour restaurant serving American favorites like soups, salads, sandwiches and classic desserts. Burgers of all invention along with five varieties of fries are prepared at BLT Burger. Other quick and casual meals can be had in the Paradise Café or at Cravings, the resort's sprawling buffet with a street-like setting. Actually, if you want to spend time near a famous street, check out Rhumbar. This hip lounge has an outdoor patio showcasing fabulous views of the Las Vegas Strip. You're sure to enjoy kicking back here with a minty mojito or a cigar in hand. Or the Lobby Bar near the front entrance is perfect for people watching and socializing.For more serious relaxation, The Mirage has a lush tropical pool area surrounded by waterfalls. Adults will delight in the dayclub experience offered at  the European-style Bare Pool Lounge. And if more extreme pampering is desired, the resort has a stellar facility: the Spa and Salon.The iconic attraction is The Mirage Volcano, set in a tranquil lagoon spanning the front of the property. At night, you can see it erupt. The fiery special effects are choreographed to an original soundtrack created by Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart and international superstar Zakir Hussain. Other similarly remarkable sights inside the resort include the towering tropical atrium packed with beautifully colored fauna and flora and the floor-to-ceiling aquarium in the lobby, which is home to nearly 1,000 forms of marine life.And you won't want to leave the resort without visiting Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. Built for both educational and leisure purposes, these two habitats provide the rare chance to see a family of bottlenose dolphins as well as white and golden tigers, white lions and black and spotted leopards.  Last but not least, the casino at The Mirage has something for everyone -- from the table games and the huge variety of slots to the expansive race and sports book, which features an 85-foot-by16-foot projection display. Poker enthusiasts are sure to fall for the stylish 30-table poker room.Although it's not situated in the Caribbean, The Mirage will welcome you to paradise in the center of the Strip -- for a vacation that will rank among the most luxurious and lavish in the world.-- By Renée LiButti

Great pool and room, but beware of restaurants
PostedJuly 12, 2013
I like the Mirage for their pool, the location, the dinner buffet, and the room quality. What I don't like is everytime I got hungry, I had to spend $25. Seriously. No fast food or ordinary quick bites anywhere to be seen. Closest thing would be BLT Burger and California Pizza kitchen. Both of these places figured out how to dress up a pizza or a burger, then get you for $20. Add a side and a drink, and there you go. The only place for me to get iced tea was Starbucks for $4- so no free refills outside of being in a restaurant. After a while, it really felt like they were trying to stick it to me. Hope it was worth it, MGM.
