The ancient Romans knew how to party. They were so good at it they even had a god of overindulgence – Bacchus. In Las Vegas, Caesars Palace has been an embodiment of that Roman extravagance and luxury since it opened in 1966.That doesn't mean anything about this place is ancient though. Caesars Palace has changed and reinvented itself over the years and has always kept its opulent spirit.Caesars Palace is such a Las Vegas icon  it has been featured in countless movies like "Rain Man," "Dreamgirls," "Rocky III," "The Guilt Trip," and maybe most famously, "The Hangover," where its main characters stayed and had that raging party.When in Las Vegas, we suggest you do as the Romans (and "The Hangover" guys) do and celebrate like royalty at Caesars Palace.Party seekers don't have to go far to find hot nightlife at the resort. Start out in the stylish Lobby Bar where famed mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim created eight premium and potent cocktails exclusively for the venue. Flair bartenders and sexy silhouetted dancers keep the party going at Shadow bar and guests can literally rock the boat at Cleopatra's Barge atop a floating dance floor. Champagne lovers can get their fix at Fizz Las Vegas, an elegant lounge and bar designed in coordination with Elton John's partner David Furnish.The clubbing crowd is anxiously awaiting the highly anticipated Omni Nightclub, which will debut in spring 2015 at Caesars Palace. The 75,000-square-foot club will have an ultra lounge, a high-energy main room and a rooftop garden with amazing views of the Strip.We're quite sure Roman royalty liked to be entertained and Caesars Palace is home to some major headliners -- Elton John, Rod Stewart and Reba with Brooks & Dunn (starting in June, 2015) -- at the 4,100-seat Colosseum.Those who appreciate hidden gems won't want to miss the creative and irreverent show "Absinthe," which is all the rage amongst the hip crowd in Vegas. The adults-only show features a crazy cast of circus-style performers led by the lewdest ringmaster imaginable. Matt Goss, a swingin’ British crooner, performs a mix of Rat Pack-era standards with his own music in The Gossy Room at Cleopatra's Barge.Any good Roman party includes a feast and Caesars Palace is home to some of the finest chefs and restaurants in the city.The Forum Shops at Caesars was (and still is) home to the first celebrity chef in Las Vegas, Wolfgang Puck, with Spago. Plenty of other acclaimed chefs followed and opened restaurants at Caesars including Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill, famed New York Italian eatery Rao's, Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill and Michelin two-star restaurant Guy Savoy. In spring 2015, the London institution Mr Chow, known for its authentic Beijing cuisine and European-style service, will be a welcome addition.One of the dining must-dos at Caesars is the appropriately named Bacchanal Buffet, a mind-blowing array of more than 500 delectable dishes.If shopping is your indulgence of choice, The Forum Shops at Caesars doesn't disappoint. The shops boast elegant Roman architecture, animatronic statues, a faux cloudy sky that changes from day to night, top restaurants and shops from the most prestigious designers in the world.The casino at Caesars Palace is legendary whether you're a high roller or just want to play the slots. The race & sports book offers huge screens broadcasting all of the sporting action. And in a private enclave off the casino floor is Las Vegas' largest poker room, measuring 14,000 square feet. Players at Caesars are treated like royalty, with tableside food service and massages.The Romans might have been known for their wild parties but we bet they knew how to relax too. Caesars Palace has plenty of options for those looking for a little recovery. The beautiful Garden of the Gods pool complex has eight pools surrounded by stunning Italian architecture. We also recommend a visit to the luxurious Qua Baths & Spa where you can be pampered like a god or goddess.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.

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 2015, 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. The Chinese restaurant Fin showcase live seafood -- steamed, baked or wok-fried. 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.

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.

Does Mirage charges any resort fee? If they do, how much is it?

Of course. $25 per night July 2013.
