With a history as epic as the real Roman Empire, Caesars Palace rules over the center Strip with a wide range of rooms, The Colosseum and a mighty roster of Las Vegas restaurants, bars and nightclubs.The vibe:Vegas glitz with a Greco-Roman take, meandering layout, celebrity-driven offeringsWhat we love:Caesars Palace has been around since 1966 and we admire this Las Vegas hotel for its ability to change with the times. By constantly modernizing -- from adding new Las Vegas restaurants and the world's first-ever Nobu Hotel to bringing in star performers like Jerry Seinfeld and Reba, Brooks & Dunn and shows like the circus-style burlesque "Absinthe" - this empire shows no signs of decline.The Bacchanal Buffet does for a Vegas buffet what The Forum Shops at Caesars did to shopping - it elevates the experience (and we're grateful for that). With a mind-blowing array of delectable dishes prepared by a team of chefs, you'll discover small plates with things like fried chicken and waffles, red velvet pancakes and mini Wagyu sliders.Cleopatra's Barge has been a lively nightspot since it opened in 1970. What could be cooler than partying on this floating barge? When people get down on the dance floor it bobs around. Insider tips:Speaking of walking, make sure you valet park at the hotel's main entrance when you arrive to check-in because the distance from the parking garage to the registration desk feels like a hike to Rome.Spend an afternoon at Qua Baths & Spa. Now there are too many treatments on the menu for us to suggest just one, but what we love is that as part of your visit you'll have access to the idyllic Roman baths, a laconium room, a tea lounge with a tea sommelier (who knew that existed?) and an Arctic ice room where - we kid you not - it snows. (You'll thank us for sending you here during the 100-plus-degree summer months.)Good to know:Navigating the ground floor of Caesars Palace - considering everything the resort has to offer and its winding layout - is a challenge. Hopefully, you've been doing some endurance training... just kidding, but be prepared to walk a lot. And because this place is so big, expect waits during peak times for checking in or out as well as for staff to get to your room if you should need something cleaned or fixed.There is valet and self-parking. Rates vary, so click here for details.

My stay in Vegas was awesome. First of all my flight was great. It was my partners first experience in a plane. No problems. My limo ride to Caesars was great. First time in a limo. Check in was smooth. They upgraded our room to a suite. The room was spacious, clean. What a welcome feeling. Will recommend to everyone:)

Located south of the Strip, hence the name South Point, this hotel has tournament-caliber equestrian and bowling centers -- and it’s a champion among bargain hunters with affordable rooms, a Steak 'n Shake and a movie theater.The vibe:Off-the-beaten path, a horse lover’s dream, a penny pincher's paradiseWhat we love:Hey horse aficionados...you'll be right at home in the South Point, which is known for its Equestrian Center. An arena with 4,600 seats and 1,200 climate-controlled horse stalls, perhaps the coolest thing about attending an event -- ranging from every kind of rodeo competition to gun shows and hoops tournaments -- is grabbing an ice cold beer from the Saturday Night Bar, which overlooks all the action.There's no better place to drop some pins than the South Point. Play a game in the 64-lane bowling center or if you'd rather watch professionals, check out the South Point Bowling Plaza. Opened in 2014, it has two 30-lane competition floors and a 360-seat viewing area, both of which provide the perfect backdrop for the USBC Open Championships and Women's Championships.A throwback restaurant, Michael's Gourmet Room has a stained glass dome and plush red décor. Originally located in the bygone Barbary Coast, it's been a Vegas icon for more than 20 years. Of course, having dinner here will be expensive (with a capital "E"), but one bite of the perfectly prepared and presented filet mignon and sirloin steak and you won't give a damn.Insider tips:If you don't have a car with you at the South Point, take advantage of the shuttles. The resort fee actually includes shuttle service to and from the airport (be sure to make reservations 24 hours in advance). For not too much moolah, you can also take a shuttle to and from the Town Square shopping center or the Strip (stops are at Excalibur, Aria and Treasure Island).Whether you're a cowboy or just one at heart, get a photo with the giant bronze statue of local gaming maverick Benny Binion on horseback. You'll find it near the entry to the Equestrian Center. It's a great tribute to the man who helped bring the National Finals Rodeo to Vegas and created the World Series of Poker.If you're an alley cat in search of some cheap action, take advantage of the graveyard special at the South Point's bowling center. As long as you can stay up until the wee hours (that's from midnight to 8 a.m. every Sunday through Thursday), you can play for $1.East Coasters know all about Steak 'n Shake's classic "steakburgers." The South Point is home to the only location in Las Vegas...so go find out what all the fuss is about.Good to know:We want to be clear about where the South Point is located. It's not within walking distance to the Strip. It sits at the outlying southern end of Las Vegas Boulevard approximately five miles (that's a 10-minute drive) from the Welcome to Fabulous to Las Vegas sign. The South Point is a great base if you want to be close to the action but not right in the middle of it. And if you plan to explore the greater Las Vegas valley, it's near both Interstate 15 and 215.  Because there's been no renovation since the hotel opened in late 2005 and its newest tower debuted in 2008, the standard rooms are a little worn. They also don't come with fridges, but you will find they are spacious at 500 square feet and have other amenities (like Serta mattresses, coffeemakers, safes and 42-inch flat-screen TVs) that make a difference.The South Point isn't as huge as the megaresorts on the Strip, but you'll still have to cover a fair distance (this includes crossing the casino floor) to get from the self-parking garage or the parking lot to the room elevators.
 

IS a shuttle to the strip offered?

Yes. There is The Deuce that runs 24 hours. Also, the Express which runs till midnight.
