My wife and I stayed at Caesars Palace from 6/27/06 to 7/2/06 and the experienced was mixed. First of all, let me state that the experience overall was satisfactory. It was far from perfect however. Allow me to list the positives and negatives.
(1) Location: The location of Caesars Palace (henceforth referred to as "CP") is excellent. In the middle of Las Vegas Blvd (aka "The Strip") you are within walking distance to most of the major attractions and resorts on the Strip. In terms of Strip resorts, CP probably has one of the best locations (along with the Mirage, Venetian, Bellagio and Paris Las Vegas). Centrally located and in the center of all the action/activities.
(2) Staff: The staff of CP was professional, diligent, competent and eager to serve. They really took care of our needs with a courteous and friendly attitude. The staff at CP is top notch! I can't say enough good things about them. I would also like to note that while there were issues with our room (see Negatives), the maid made sure our room was clean and tidy every day.
(3) Forum Shops: The Forum Shops at CP are excellent with stores and restaurants that can fit every price range. Just walking through the shops is an experience in itself. I highly recommend checking out CP's Forum Shops, even if you aren't staying at the actual resort.
(1) Room Issues: Our room was located over one of the nightclubs (Shadow Lounge) so at night, we could feel the bass beats and hear the music through the floor. We had to turn on the television to a music station so it would block out the club noise. Also, our toilet tended to make noises at night which also added to the 'negatives' of the room. It seemed that it was 'always running.'
(2) Casino: I am a regular visitor to Las Vegas and I do engage in gambling. I do not like the casino at CP. There seems to be a shortage of table games and what they do have is, in my opinion, overpriced. Even on a Sunday morning or Thursday early-afternoon, the tablegames (especially blackjack and craps) were too expensive. This is subjective and just my opinion. The minimum price I found for the average tablegame was $25. The 'old' casino area (with the majority of the craps, roulette and tablegames) tended to be very crowded.
(3) Basic Services Charged: If you want to use the gym... you pay for it. If you want to send an email... you pay for it. My wife and I wanted to log-on to our airline to print our boarding passes and it the fee was $5 for 5 minutes in the business center. I would like to think that certain services would be inclusive.
Note: If there is a long line for a taxi, you may get offered by a CP-Staffer to an immediate 'anywhere in Vegas' ride for $35. Don't take it. From CP to McCarran Airport, Freemont Street or Downtown is less than $20.
