Caesars' Websites Get a Glossy New Look

Looks like Caesars is kicking off the new year with brand new look... of their websites.

A tipster pointed us to the redesign of the individual property sites for Caesars' Las Vegas hotels (the main Caesars.com page still looks the same, though, as does Bill's) and we're impressed with the glossy yet functional new layouts, from the home page anchored by large, saturated photos to the easy-to-navigate menu options (Hotel, Casinos, Shows, Restaurants, Things to Do) as well as the front and center booking system. Even the font seems friendlier! And, if you're a Total Rewards member, signing in is easy to see and do in the top right corner of every page.

Best of all there is no crazy video on the home page telling us some weird kind of noir 'only in vegas' story. (Sorry, Golden Gate.)

Scrolling down on the Caesars Palace home page, we see a couple of deals and package options as well as big features on its residency stars -- Celine, Goss, and... Gordon?

We cycled through all of the new websites and the Flamingo is probably our favorite. (This gal loves 'da pink.) But, the new look even works for Bally's whose real-life look is from the MS DOS days. However, the room photo for Rio Las Vegas featuring an outdated tub and questionable bedding might need a do-over.

Lazy folks, check the photo gallery for screengrabs of the home pages!

Not A Fan

I'm not much a fan of Caesars properties and I have never particularly cared for their web site(s).  That is still the case.  Many of the other properties in town, actually, any property that isn't affiliated with Caesars, offers a link for Room/Accomodations.  From that link are usually pictures with room descriptions.  When it comes to booking a suite I want to know square footage and if it is a jetted tub in the bathroom.  Click on the HOTEL link on Caesars Palace and it show a few different room types, click on one and you are automatically taken to reservations. Even there, the descriptions suck.  There isn't anything in the descriptions that get me excited and think, oooh, I want to stay there!  This isn't the 90's where the name is enough to sell the hotel.  Once upon a time I could have cared less about room types and descriptions, IT'S CAESARS!!!  Then the millenium hit.

Caesar's Gold?

Apparently that's what they take for payment at 400 plus for a room. Do these rooms come with a personal assistance, unlimited beverages, massage, free room service, and in room comedy shows?
