I stayed at Caesars for one night mid-January (Friday night). My husband booked the room just a few days prior and asked if I thought a deluxe room would be good enough. At first I agreed, but after reading quite a few reviews on TA, I told him to bump us up to a premium room. I don't know what we could have been given, but I was perfectly happy with our room placement in the Centaurion Tower. If this was premium, I was glad we went up a notch for it.
We checked in at four pm, and since it is off season, it was quick and efficient. The girl at the front desk that checked us in was cordial and efficient. We were given a room on the 42nd floor (the higher the better) with an ocean view. But our room was right around the corner from the elevator. We had two double beds, since we were with our daughter. I would have preferred queen beds and a bed with either two or four pillows (not three--stole one from my daughter's bed so no need to call housekeeping), and a room NOT by the elevator.
There were only two bath towels under the sink (even though our reservation showed three people), but the housekeeper was in the hall at that time, so she gave us three more. They are large, soft towels, too. I know better than to stay in a room by the elevator (TA has trained me to be on the lookout), but I knew we wouldn't be in the room a lot. Be warned though. We were in room 4216, and I could hear the elevator running up and down throughout the night. We had an ocean view, so I tried to pretend it was the ocean waves, but it didn't work too well. The bed was comfortable, there is only a shower (not a tub) but it was large and clean with good water pressure, the toilet is in a separate room (a plus when getting ready), there is a tv in the mirror of the bathroom (always love this when a tv is in the dressing area) and mostly the room was tidy, neat and clean. And there is an empty refrigerator with ample space to store my own drinks. Those were good pros of the room, along with the it having a good amount of space for the three of us.
And the hotel is in an excellent location! I was surprised that the Claridge did not have any slot machines (just in Bally's), but you have the chance to walk to shops undercover in case the weather is inclement in The Piers, gamble in Bally's and The Wild West as well as Caesars Palace, eat in many restaurants, play Glow Golf, sit in an Adirondack chair on an inside boardwalk people watching.
The cons were the location of our given room was close to the elevator (but I did receive a room upon on a high floor), the glitzy gold (I don't like the "gaudiness" of all the gold but this is Atlantic City. What did I expect!), the carpeting in the corners of the room could have been vacuumed better, the gold around the bathroom mirror was "brushing/rubbing" off, and the furnishings are getting outdated. All in all though, my room was not dirty or unkempt. It is what is to be expected of a "themed" hotel (bold, brassy and bodacious--which doesn't suit everyone). Also, it is HUGE, so expect a bit of walking to and from to get anywhere. This is a plus perhaps, too.
I have stayed in Ballys, Courtyard and the Claridge. I might try The Revel since it is entirely non-smoking and that is a big plus! I would recommend this hotel but only if staying in a Premium (I don't know how the deluxe/standard rooms are) room or better, but there are so many options in Atlantic City, I may or may not choose Caesars Palace the next time.
