…After a nice cab ride to Caesars Palace we walk into the main check in area. I tend to always over pack, so I was lugging around a 40+ pound suitcase and a laptop. We look around, but cannot find Diamond Check In. We were shown the way by a very nice employee on her way toward the Augustus Tower. I haven’t seen the gaming area yet, but already realize how big this place is. Diamond Check in and the Augustus Tower are pretty far from the rest of the casino. Check in was a breeze and I was upgraded to a petite suite in the Palace Tower as opposed to the Augustus Tower room I reserved. I love hearing the word suite!
After what felt like a 20 minute walk through the casino we found the Palace Tower. After a day learning the grounds it wasn’t so bad. The good news is that it’s right by the pools. Only 3 of the 5 pools are currently open. Here is the view of the pools from my room.
Now for a photo tour of the petite suite. Open the door to the nice entry hall filled with huge closets to the left and two bathrooms and a vanity to the right.
If I were to nitpick I would mention that the TV was too small and did not have HD programming. The actual decor of the TV area was very nice. However, I had to chuckle at the $6.50 bag of kettle chips that cost $1 anywhere else. Truth be told, I would have eaten them if I was drunk and hungry.
The room was pretty spacious and, again, decorated very nicely. The general room decor is modern. I’ve mentioned before how much I like and prefer clean line design. Doubling back we head to the bathrooms.
The larger of the two bathrooms included a single sink with a granite top, a water closet (shown above) with a bidet and toilet as well as a huge jacuzzi tub (not shown). The smaller of the bathrooms had just a sink water closet. No complaints with that, just not exciting enough to take a photo. The bathrooms were connected by jack and jill style showers.
Since the showers have glass doors my friend and I couldn’t both use the bathroom at the same time if one of use was using the shower. I’m not sure that this was the best design idea, but it was ok. Having a double shower was pretty cool. The shower was huge.
Overall, I was pretty happy with the room. The bathroom design was semi-dated but kept with the roman theme of the hotel while the main space of the room was spacious and modern. The room was almost all the way at the end of the hall, which felt like a long haul on the first day but wasn’t really that bad.
Next up: Time to get up and go…
