For planners looking for a property in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, the iconic Caesars Palace, with its classic Roman-themed design and grand fountains throughout the property, is comprised of five recently redesigned hotel towers and offers more than 300,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, featuring two 51,000-square-foot ballrooms that overlook the opulent 5-acre Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis, available for private events. Onsite there are several additional unique venues, like Mr. Chow Restaurant overlooking the hotel’s pool area, which is available for VIP receptions and buy-outs; the award-winning, 50,000-square-foot Qua Spa; and the 4,200-seat Colosseum, which is also available for general sessions and buy-outs.
With more than 50 years on the Strip and having hosted the biggest names in entertainment from Frank Sinatra to Elton John, Caesars Palace originally was given its name, with its notable missing apostrophe, because the resort’s creator, designer Jay Sarno, wanted everyone to “have the opportunity to be treated like royalty at his opulent Roman-themed destination resort,” said Gary Selesner, regional president of Caesars Palace. “Therefore, Sarno removed the apostrophe in the resort’s name to signify that Caesars would be a palace for everyone, not just Caesar.”
This famous lack of apostrophe also inspired the popular onsite Apostrophe Bar, where participants meeting at the hotel can enjoy handcrafted cocktails. Large groups also can take advantage of any of the hotel’s onsite restaurants, which feature celebrity chef hotspots like Gordon Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen and Pub & Grill; Nobu Matsuhisa’s Nobu Restaurant and Lounge, serving fresh sushi; Restaurant Guy Savoy with its French specialties; and Giada De Laurentiis’s Pronto, where attendees can get quick bites just steps from the meeting space. Also onsite is Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill; Beijing Noodle No. 9, which serves Chinese delicacies; and Rao’s, serving authentic Italian cuisine.
Recently opened at Caesars Palace is the Vanderpump Cocktail Garden, helmed by Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump. This romantic, fresco-style cocktail lounge is available for buyouts and events of up to 150 people. Planners can choose from two spaces at the venue, including the interior back lounge that accommodates 50 seated guests or up to 70 standing, and the patio for 50 seated guests.
In addition, the OMNIA Night Club is available for buyouts and provides 75,000 square feet of event space, including an outdoor terrace overlooking the Las Vegas Strip. Plus, the regal Colosseum will soon undergo significant technical and design updates, including the addition of a new sound system, new light fixtures, and a high-definition LED video wall. After the renovation, the venue will be able to accommodate multiple seating arrangements, including VIP banquettes with bottle service and general admission setup.
“While we recognize The Colosseum is already top of its class, these changes will allow for more flexibility in our booking process and give us the opportunity to thrill fans with new and diverse offerings,” said Jason Gastwirth, president of entertainment for Caesars Entertainment.
Also part of this historic property — which has been featured in many Hollywood films from Rain Man to The Hangover — is the 181-room Nobu Hotel, with the exquisite three-bedroom, 10,300-square-foot Nobu Villa, which offers magnificent views of the strip and is perfect for special receptions. This Japanese-inspired space features lemon-ginger scents and fine cuisine made by Nobu chefs, and the sky deck offers a full bar and barbecue pit.
Caesars Palace also makes it easy to keep participants all in one place with 3,960 guest rooms and high-end suites and villas. The Palace Tower, popular with planners, has convenient direct access to the conference space. Classic rooms feature a separate sitting area and a European-style marble bath, while the Deluxe and Premium rooms offer stunning views of Las Vegas. Attendees can opt for a more upscale experience at one of the property’s opulent suites, many of which include butler service, ranging in size from 700 to 13,000 square feet. Caesars Palace specializes in taking care of VIPS — from onsite limousine and butler service to Diamond Check-in and Diamond cards for corporate events or speakers. Planners can feel confident that their delegates will receive first-class service.
The height of Las Vegas luxury, Caesars Palace provides event organizers with everything they need to create a comfortable and unforgettable experience for attendees. By offering some of best service, the city’s finest restaurants, shopping outlets, and outside-the-box event spaces all under one roof, Caesars Palace helps organizers stress less while bringing their visions to life.
