When booking a stay at most hotels in Las Vegas, the decision making process is fairly straightforward. Once you've decided on a hotel, the remaining choices aren't complicated. Smoking, or non? Two queens or a king? Standard or suite? If you happen, however, to be planning a stay at Caesars Palace, be prepared to select not only your room preferences, but which hotel tower you would like as well.
The goliath that is Caesars contains more than 4,000 rooms across its five separate towers, all center Strip. Each tower is unique, almost to the point that itís as if Caesars is really five hotels in one. Make that six when factoring in the new Nobu Hotel within a hotel which opened earlier this year. Names like the Augustus Tower and Octavius Tower donít offer up any clues regarding age or location. If you're hoping to stay in a recently remodeled room or seeking out a view of the Bellagio fountains, you need to be sure that you book the right tower. If nothing else, you should know which tower to avoid. That happens to be the Roman Tower, which is where we begin.
When we last stayed at Caesars Palace we noticed something strange with the floors. The floors at the Augustus Tower seemed out of whack. We had visions of being in a high roller suite when we saw that we were on the 45th floor. Then we got into the elevator and noticed that there were still another 10 or so floors above us. Sigh. We were in the middle, where we belonged. Oh well, we still had a really nice room.
When we got downstairs we noticed that the lower floors began at the 23rd floor. Ok, that can't be right. We actually walked outside to see how big the tower was and something seemed wrong. We asked the twitterverse if they knew what was going and only @CaesarsPalace knew the truth. (Go figure.) Now, we all know as well!

It's been about four years since this VegasChatter writer has stayed at Caesars Palace. That's by choice. Given the opportunity to stay at any Caesars Entertainment property in Vegas for free with our Total Rewards membership, we've chosen elsewhere. We're not very fond of the size and layout of Caesars Palace. It's big and not the easiest place to quickly navigate. We decided, however, to give Caesars Palace a chance this week. It's been a while and a lot has changed.
We reserved a Forum Tower room online, but when checking in (at 9:30 a.m.) we were asked if we'd like an Augustus Tower room. We heard the rooms were really nice so we jumped at the chance.
The Augustus Tower room was easily the nicest room we've stayed in at any Caesars Entertainment property.
Dare we say that it was so nice it didn't feel like a Caesars property? The room is huge with a modern design. Unlike the Flamingo's GO rooms (which we like), the colors in the Augustus tower room were tasteful and†muted. One of our favorite features in the room were the Qua Spa toiletries in the bathroom.
Three Vegas hotels, all on the same Vegas vacation. This VegasChatter member already told you about our nights at Monte Carlo and The Orleans, now it's time to tell you about our room at Caesars Palace.
The check-in line at Caesars was long, but moved quickly. When it was our turn, we were notified that we would have a one-bedroom suite. Excited, we snatched our keys and headed toward the elevator. Upon entering our room, we were more than presently surprised.
