The Las Vegas icon that keeps up with its long-standing reputation.
With its towering row of fountains leading to its entrance, this hotel revolutionized the Strip when it opened in 1966. Now it's almost a city unto itself, with three enormous casinos, a celebrity-filled nightclub, four busy lounges and numerous restaurants that include the Old Homestead Steakhouse and Restaurant Guy Savoy. The casino's $95-million, 4,100-seat Colosseum houses major talents: Elton John, Celine Dion and Shania Twain. The Octavius tower has added a 668-room luxury hotel within a hotel, complete with its own entrance, lobby and access to the Garden of the Gods pool complex. For pure indulgence, head for the 50,000-square-foot Qua Baths & Spa, which features 51 treatment studios (including three deluxe Couples Suites), hydrotherapy tubs, Vichy showers, facial studios, massage studios and an Arctic Ice Room. The elegantly decorated, state-of-the-art, 240,000-square-foot ballroom/meeting facilities host a variety of functions. Of note: two boardrooms featuring rich fruitwood paneling, alabaster and bronze chandeliers, and plush leather executive chairs. If that's not enough to keep you busy, the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace will cater to all your luxe shopping needs.
