Having opened in 1966 Caesars Palace is well over 50 years old. Given this, plus its size, it is unsurprising the ancient Roman themed casino and hotel is considered to be one of Las Vegas’ best known landmarks.
Based in Paradise, Nevada, the luxury hotel and casino is situated on the west side of the Las Vegas strip between Bellagio and The Mirage. It also boasts a huge convention facility of over 300,000 square feet.
Caesars Palace has been expanded since its opening and had no less than seven renovations – the last being in 2015. Right now it boasts 3,960 rooms in six towers meaning if you wanted to spend a night in each it would take you almost 11 years!

It is an awesome place providing breath-taking action from its custom built, 143′ HD LED display which has state-of-the-art 4-zone directional sound.
