Mark’s Top 5 rooms in Las Vegas: #3 Palace Tower Premium at Caesars Palace

The Palace Tower Premium is a great room.  Although the Palace Tower was built in 1997 and has been upstaged by the Augustus Tower (opened in 2005) and the Octavius Tower (opened in 2012), the Palace Tower Premium room is still one of the top rooms.  Even the more basic Palace Tower Deluxe rooms are nice, but the Palace Tower Premium adds a dual shower that connects its 2 bathrooms (one with an over-sized jacuzzi and the other with a bidet).  I’m a little bit of a pushover for elaborate bathrooms while in Las Vegas and this in one of my favorites.

That bathroom does eat into some of the bedroom space, but there is still space to fit a king size bed, writing desk and a comfortable sitting area.

The rooms average about $200 during the week and $300 per night on the weekend.  This varies a lot depending upon what else is going on in Las Vegas at the time. I have seen them as low as $175 in December and over $1000 during big conventions.  They are typically $100 more than the base Roman Tower and Forum Tower rooms.  Having a Total Rewards card usually saves you a little on the room rate.  Remember to figure in the resort fee when pricing your room, though.

Caesars Palace is one of those places where you can stay for days on end without having to leave the property. Qua is amazing! You have to visit their Arctic Ice room (where it snows). In addition to Rao’s and Mesa Grill within Caesars Palace, there are more dining options like The Palm and Spago in the Forum ShopsShadow is a great place to get a drink and see some great flair bar tending in addition to the obvious shadow dancing. Caesars is also home to Pure nightclub (Pure has closed).
