After being to Caesars in late April/early May 2009, I did a another reservation to re-visit this past weekend from July 16-20th for four wonderful nights; once again in their Centurion Tower. Only this time, the desk clerk gave me a wonderful room with an unobstructed, clear view of the ocean. I didn't realize this until I stepped into my room and looked out the window; what a pleasant treat for a change! Another huge plus, the room was readily available upon my arrival/check-in, without having to wait!
Elevators worked fine, seldom had to wait for one. My room was clean and there were no issues with daily housekeeping, although I will leave a daily tip. Also remember if you do not want to be disturbed, press the "Do Not Disturb" button located just inside the room. Likewise, if you want your room made up, there is also a button to press. The dresser base when opening a door has a mini fridge stored inside it which kept things nice and cold. Rooms have wireless internet service which is $13.99 extra for each 24-hour period.
Nice bathroom with a separate water closet (commode) with it's own door and a large mirrored vanity with double light fixtures. Built-in LCD TV into the mirror, but never used it. No bathtub in the bath, but there is a huge walk-in (glass-enclosed) tiled shower with a bench seat and faucet control that has two levers; use the small one to adjust the water temperature to your liking and the large one to turn the water on/off without disturbing the water temperature.
The beachfront at Caesars sets wide and deep, not narrow like in some areas. Also my advise for any beachgoers staying in the Centurion Tower: You do not have to walk through the casino to get to the boardwalk/beach. Instead take the Centurion elevator down to the 2nd floor which brings you out into the Palladium Room, then bear left and walk across the wide-open Palladium room heading in the direction where you will see the sign marked Ballys/Wild Wild West with an escalator. Take that escalator down and bear right which will lead you directly to the doors which exit directly onto the boardwalk.
I only dined in Caesars at their Sunday Champagne Brunch ($45.00 p/p?) located upstairs on the third floor at Nero's. The food and service is excellent as always. Large cocktail shrimp (peeled/deveined), breads, beef tenderloin/fillet mignon steak, fish stuffed with good quality crabmeat, dessert bar, fresh-made crepes, breakfast items, etc., etc. Just remember to make a reservation. For breakfast, I prefer to walk down the boardwalk (passing Bally's) to Bill's Gyros, which is about a 7-10 minute walk from Caesars. For the most part, I enjoy eating out at my favorite restaurants located off the beachfront. Some people might feel a bit apprehensive to leave AC's beachfront to walk the street(s), but I feel you are no more at risk than when you walk around other city streets. Besides, this area is where the store outlets are located and is part of the "Ducktown" area which still has that certain Atlantic City charm.
Harrah's operates it 's shuttle-van service between it's four AC properties: Caesars, Bally's, Showboat, and Harrahs on the Marina. One is the "Heart" and the other is the "Club", each of which determines the direction the van is headed to Harrah's properties. Waiting time for the shuttle can vary; it can be minutes or up to a half hour depending on traffic or heavy-ridership conditions. For Gold Card holders, you need to show both your "Players Card" and your "Check-in Room Ticket" the hotel gives you when checking in; for Platinum Card holders on up, just your "Players Card." In addition, everyone must show a form of ID (drivers license) as an additional requirement, which is a slight hassle because it consumes both the passenger and driver's time. I don't know Harrah's explanation for the ID requirement; perhaps Players Cards were being found lying around and used by total strangers to ride their shuttle service.
All in all, a wonderful visit. I hope and plan to return back soon. Atlantic City is a totally different experience in itself; it still has some of it's old-world charm and grace.
