Billion dollar expansion plans for Caesars Palace

Caesars Palace is a world renown resort and casino, celebrating the glory that was Greece and the grandeur that was Rome in an 85-acre destination location that sets the standard for entertainment, dining and luxury. Reigning at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, Caesars Palace features 3,348 hotel guest rooms and suites, 25 unique restaurants and cafes, 4.5-acre Garden of the Gods pools and gardens, 50,000-square-foot Qua Baths & Spa and 240,000 square feet of premium meeting and convention space.

The 4,100-seat Colosseum sits just steps from celebrity chef restaurants and the acclaimed Forum Shops at Caesars and spotlights world-class entertainers such as Celine Dion, Elton John and Jerry Seinfeld; and debuting February 20, 2008, Bette Midler.

The Octavius Tower

The center piece of the expansion is the luxurious new 665-room hotel tower – the Octavius Tower. Named for the great-nephew of Julius Caesar, who later changed his name to Augustus, the $375 million Octavius Tower will be situated adjacent to a new 263,000-square-foot meeting and convention center located along Flamingo Road on the southeast corner of the Caesars property.

Three new luxurious pool villa suites will be built along the second floor of the new tower and will overlook three new swimming pools that will rim an expanded outdoor whirlpool spa retreat, a poolside cafe and nearby garden wedding venue. This expansion is slated for completion in early 2009.

The New Octavius Tower will include:

  • 665-room, 23-story hotel tower rising 350 feet;
  • 594 hotel guest rooms (floor plans from 600 square feet);
  • 19 1 ½-bay suites;
  • 41 two- or three-bay suites;
  • 4 four-bay suites;
  • 3 five-bay suites;
  • 1 six-bay suite; and
  • 3 lavish pool villa suites

The Forum Tower

Like the Octavius Tower, guest accommodations will feature blissful bedding, dressed in premium linens and stylish mat lasses, as well as large, flat panel televisions, iPod docking stations, electronic doorbells and “do not disturb” messaging. In-bedroom whirlpool bathtubs will be removed to provide more spacious sleeping and lounging environments.

Distinctive in the Forum Tower will be giant, marble, surround showers that can easily accommodate two people that will be equipped with both rain shower and regular shower head fixtures and bench seating.

The complete remodel of the 24-story Forum Tower will include:

  • 452 guest rooms
  • 10 two-story suites, which became widely known after the release of the movie Rain Man
  • 60 two-bay suites; and
  • 18 executive suites and two penthouses (9,500 and 12,500 square feet)
