I have to admit that even though it is ALWAYS more expensive than all the other hotels on the block (Bally's, Harrah's, Trump, Showboat, etc.) I try to stay here whenever I come to Atlantic City. Comp rooms are harder to get here than just about anywhere else, so I usually end up paying even though I can get rooms at Bally's or Showboat for free.
Part of the reason is because many of the other casino hotels such as Harrah's and Bally's are loaded with working girls hanging out in the bars and lobbies. Which, hey ... I'm not one to judge. But it is annoying going to a bar in a casino and get propositioned all night long by different call girls. I've never had that happen at Caesars. Also, most of the younger fist-pumping guido crowd stays away from Caesars during the week because the rooms are more pricey. Unfortunately the Jersey Shore infestation cannot be avoided on the weekend, especially given that Dusk is located in Caesars and is one of 'the dance clubs' in AC. But during the week, you are less likely to run into Pauly D or the Situation wanna-bes staggering around doing Jagerbombs in Caesars vs. the other casinos.
The downside to Caesars is that most of the restaurants and food is very expensive ... and closes early. Mia, their showpiece bar in the 'lobby' of the hotel closes at 9 p.m. on the weeknights. Its always weird to hear last call at 8:30 p.m. at a bar in a casino. Even Morton's closes at 10 p.m. during the week ... although they have one of the least expensive 'happy hours'. You can get $6 or $7 bar food at different times throughout the day and from 9 p.m. until close. A good deal at Morton's even if the bar menu is blah compared to the high priced entrees.
The rooms at Caesars are nice ... I can't say much as to the standard rooms because I always stay in the Centurion tower. I believe they call this category of rooms 'premium' or 'luxury' and they are more expensive than the regular rooms. But they have a nicer color scheme, marble, crown moulding, glass showers and tv screens in the bathroom mirror. I have heard the standard rooms are not as spacious, clean or nicely decorated as the higher priced rooms.
The thing I like least about staying at Caesars are that the WALLS ARE THIN. If you have noisy neighbors, which is a common thing in Atlantic City ... you won't sleep much. This last visit I could hear the television set of the person next door the first night. The second night I had a group of people talking loudly and laughing all night long and I couldn't sleep until they stopped at around 2 a.m. I was a bit surprised by this in the Centurion tower because the rooms are so nice, I'd expect the walls to not be as thin.
When I went, I was given a high floor but no ocean view. In my opinion, an ocean view makes the trip much better because the rooms facing the ocean are amazing. The boardwalk is right outside the hotel and is pretty safe to walk around, even later at night. Less expensive food can be found on the boardwalk and some pretty good deals on (reputable) massage places. A $20 massage for 20 minutes is a darn good deal after sitting at a slot machine for an hour or two.
Caesars is hard to get a room in for a cheap price, but in my opinion it is a better bet for anyone who comes to AC to gamble and relax rather than grind all night at a dance club.
