caesar-frontCaesars Palace is a luxury hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip. It is owned by Harrah’s Entertainment. The theme of the hotel and casino is the Roman Empire.

Year opened

Caesars Palace opened in August 5, 1966. Building of the hotel begun in 1962 and the first tower had 680 rooms. Jay Sarno, the owner, struggled to find a name for the place and eventually came up with “Caesars Palace” (and not Caesar’s Palace) because he felt that his guests should feel as they were at a king’s home and each guest is a Caesar.

In 1969, Stuart and Clifford S Perlman bought the hotel and the plans to expend the place were on the way. In 1973, the building of an adjacent tower begun and it was completed in 1974.

In the early 1990s, the management wanted to make the place more family oriented and started to add more children features. In 1992, the Caesars Palace Forum Shops opened.

The Augustus Tower was opened in August 2005. The same year, Harrah’s Entertainment bought Caesars Palace.

My daughter was married on 2 Oct 10 at Caesars Palace. Everything went very well including the reception at Planet Hollywood. I have no complaints. Our bell hop, Bobby H did a very good job and helped us with directions. We will come back.
