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 -- Celine Dion and Shania Twain, 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

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:)

Seeking an affordable base for your Vegas vacation? The South Point is a lively option for families, mature travelers and even clubbers who want to be close to all the action but not necessarily right in the middle of it. Frequented by locals, this mid-range hotel sits on the outlying southern end of Las Vegas Boulevard about five miles (that's less than 10 minutes) from the Welcome to Fabulous to Las Vegas sign, which marks the start of the Strip.Equine aficionados will be right at home here. The South Point is revered for its Equestrian Complex. It boasts a 4,600-seat arena, where riding and rodeo events are held year-round, along with 1,200 climate-controlled horse stalls. A giant statue of local gaming maverick Benny Binion on horseback is situated near the entry -- a simple tribute to the man who brought the National Finals Rodeo to Las Vegas.Non-equestrian entertainment is plentiful outside the complex. The hotel is home to a 16-screen movie theater and a 64-lane bowling center. The Showroom at South Point also features a variety of singers, bands and comedians, along with the Saturday night '80s dance party led by the Spazmatics.Bars of every shape and size are located throughout the hotel -- some are just steps away from each other. The Malibu Bar and Island Bar serve up tropical spirits, while the Lobby Bar is a focal gathering point in the heart of the casino. The Silverado Lounge offers a classic, Old West ambiance with a wood-paneled bar and overstuffed chairs. By the race and sports book, the Del Mar Lounge is a great spot for a cold beer during the game, and the Grandview Lounge at the southern end of the casino has a "Cheers"-like vibe and often hosts dance bands on weekend nights. The South Point possesses a multitude of dining options sure to satisfy any appetite. A standout among the restaurants is the intimate gourmet room Michael's. With a 20-year history, it has won accolades for the excellent filet mignon, sirloin steak and seafood preparations. Meat lovers looking for a more casual setting with equally succulent cuts can mosey into the Silverado Steakhouse or Primarily Prime Rib. Exotic cravings are filled with the freshly made pastas in Don Vito's and south-of-the-border favorites at Baja Miguel's. The Asian restaurant Zenshin serves the freshest sashimi, nigiri and sushi rolls -- including their Vegas-themed 777, Double Down Salmon and Jackpot Rolls.For quick ways to appease your hunger pangs in between hands and other casino play, try the Coronado Café or the Garden Buffet, which offers six live cooking stations. The Del Mar Deli is a fabulous spot for New York-style soups, sandwiches and decadent desserts. Plus, the beloved Midwestern chain Steak 'n Shake, known for its "steakburgers" and hand-dipped shakes, opened its first Las Vegas location inside the South Point. Don’t forget to play in the finest bingo room around, indulge in a cutting-edge treatment and salon service at the Costa Del Sur Spa & Salon, work out in the 24-hour fitness room or relax in the lagoon-style pool and hot tub. Kids and teens can spend hours at the Time-Out Arcade, while men will enjoy an expert shave and haircut at the Barber Shop. A stay at the South Point is also ideal for business travelers, who will have access to 71,000 square feet of meeting space and wireless internet access (included in the resort fee) in the rooms and lobby. There's a large business center that offer computers, copy and fax services, shipping and office supplies as well.The hotel has 2,163 spacious rooms and suites. Comfortably furnished, each one comes with a 42-inch LED television, a hair dryer, an iron and ironing board, a coffeemaker and a clock radio with MP3 connectivity. Free shuttle service to McCarran International Airport is available.Conveniently located close to the Strip and many of Vegas' most exciting attractions, you'll experience unmatched hospitality at the South Point while benefiting from a hotel that’s a breed above the rest.--By Renée LiButti
