Transport yourself to the extravagant and extreme Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. However the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is regularly raising the bar for exactly what visitors can required in a Vegas resort experience.

Caesars Palace includes 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the brand-new luxury shop Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the completely remodeled Centurian Tower. Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming area, including the Strip’s biggest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities consist of about two lots restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, 4 swimming pools, a medspa, Pure and Poetry bars and Pussycat Dolls.

Dining choices include restaurants from world-renown chefs Individual Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.

You never understand exactly what characters you’ll encounter at Caesars with regular entertainers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.

Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas attempts to be different. From the hotel’s red reservations desks to art found throughout the resort, The Cosmopolitan’s signature design is helping to pave its own course on the Las Vegas Strip.

Upon going into the resort, you’re greeted by pillars of video boards playing video art by Digital Household kitchen and David Rockwell Studio exclusively produced for The Cosmopolitan. Simply beyond that, you’ll find all your preferred casino video games on the resort’s 100,000-square-foot casino floor.

The Cosmopolitan’s spaces standout as the resort’s most distinct function. About 2,220 of The Cosmopolitan’s 2,995 spaces have 6-foot deep terraces that extend the length of the space, a first at a modern Strip hotel. Other in-room amenities consist of soaking tubs, kitchenettes and eccentric devices like artsy coffee table books.

The dining experience at The Cosmopolitan isn’t something you’ll discover at other Strip resorts, either. All The Cosmopolitan’s 13 restaurateurs are brand-new to the Las Vegas market. You’ll find American steakhouse fare in a modern setting at STK, first-class sushi at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & & Grill and the best fish flown in from the Mediterranean day-to-day at Estiatorio Milos.

Whether the sun is up or down, Marquee Club & & Dayclub is the place to discover the party at The Cosmopolitan. The location is a dayclub/nightclub, full with a swimming pool and cabanas outside and three different rooms with 3 different vibes inside.

If nightclubs aren’t your thing, you can grab a drink at one of The Cosmopolitan’s five other bars, like The Chandelier, which is framed in 2 million dripping crystals.
