The $860 million renovations at Caesars Palace continue. The luxury resort on the Las Vegas Strip has been in makeover mode since March 2011, with no signs of easing up. Last week, the luxury hotel announced a new addition, the Octavius Tower. The new tower is set to be a whopper with 668 guest rooms, including 60 suites and six luxury villas. The tower will house a separate entrance and lobby. Guests will enjoy direct access to the resort’s Garden of the Gods pool oasis and gardens.
Gary Selesner, regional president of Caesars Palace commented on the timing of the opening of Octavius Tower. It’s predecessor, the Augustus Tower is an “unqualified success” and Caesars Palace itself has enjoyed high occupancy over the last six months.
Michael Medeiros of KNA Designs designed the 668 rooms at the Octavius Tower. A subtle palette of browns, greys, beiges and taupes provides a fine background to brighter reds and greens. The rooms start from 550 square feet and are the epitomes of modern luxury. Guests can lay back on king-sized beds with plush pillow top mattresses and fine linens. The rooms also feature plush velvet sofas, stone tables and contemporary chairs, along with chrome fixtures and dark wood furnishing.
IPad and iPod Touches in each room provides guests easy access to hotel services. 42-inch HD television screens, docking stations for iPods and comprehensive media hubs are also part of the deal. In fact, even the marble-tiled baths with oversized whirlpool bathtubs feature flat screen TVs. Bookings have already begun for stays from 2 January 2012 onwards.
