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. 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. And clubbers can party like nowhere else in Omnia Nightclub. Boasting an ornate four-story domed roof, this place has an ultra lounge, a high-energy main room, a mezzanine with private booths 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 -- Celine Dion, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Mariah Carey and Reba with Brook & Dunn -- 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. 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.

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:)

We sometimes throw around the term “affordable.” But that doesn’t mean cheap. South Point is less expensive mainly because of its location. South of major hotels like Mandalay Bay, South Point is still on Las Vegas Boulevard, making it just a short car ride away from your favorite attractions. But South Point really makes use of its extra space with its chief attraction, the revered Equestrian Complex.Hosting riding and rodeo events year-round in a 4,600 seat arena with 1,200 climate-controlled horse stalls, the complex is sure to make equine aficionados feel right at home. And if you’re a seriously hardcore rodeo fan, you just might recognize the giant statue of local gaming maverick Benny Binion on horseback situated near the entry--a simple tribute to the man who brought the National Finals Rodeo to Las Vegas.Though the Equestrian Complex is the likely the biggest draw, South Point has plenty of entertainment for those who just think horses are pretty but don’t really want to get close enough to smell them. The hotel is home to a 16-screen movie theater, a fine bingo room and a 64-lane bowling center. And the Showroom at South Point features a variety of singers, bands and comedians. And, like practically every inch of South Point, those spots can all involve some drinks.It could be said that the casino floor is a really just a mall of bars. In fact, we’re actually going to say it. If you tried to get a shot and a beer at everyone one of them you’d probably get kicked out for drunkenly doing something stupid around the fourth one. So don’t try that. Pick a couple and have a fun night. 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. And be sure to get some food in you before you drink.Michael's, throughout its 20-year history, 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 try 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 of poker 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. Between the abundant food and drinks and all that space to let your horse run around and fetch sticks or whatever it is horses do that make them so entertaining, South Point is an equestrian’s dream. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a fun place to get dinner, hang out at a bar and do a little gambling away from the confines of the Strip. Plus it’s affordable. And we all know what that means -- more money for drinks.
 

IS a shuttle to the strip offered?

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