The Statue of David at Caesars Palace

Everybody is looking for Lady Luck when they come to Vegas and Caesars Palace is home to five lucky spots you can visit. Follow the signs to the Appian Way Shops and you’ll find an 18-foot-tall, 9-ton replica of Michelangelo’s Statue of David. Touch his big toe for good luck. Near the Race & Sports book there’s a statue of Joe Louis. Fist bump his glove for luck. Next, head to Cleopatra’s Barge and touch Cleopatra’s golden chest. In the hotel lobby there’s an Augustus Caesar statue and if you rub his left index finger you’re in for some good fortune. Finally, visit the lucky Brahma Shrine outside in front of the hotel. It’s a replica of one of Thailand’s most popular Buddhist shrines.

2. When in Rome, Stay Like the Emperors Do

If visiting all of those lucky spots helped you to hit the jackpot, you could stay like a real Roman emperor would in one of Caesars Palace’s opulent villas. Once reserved for high rollers, the public can now book Caesars Suites. The rooms do not come cheap (they start at $18,000), but you can luxuriate in things like your own patio with spa pool, a fireplace and an indoor fountain in the Marc Antony Villa or a grand piano, billiards room and exotic fish tank in the Marcus Aurelius Villa.

3. Have a Big Fat Roman Wedding

5. Bypass Lines like a VIP

The Bacchanal Buffet

The Bacchanal Buffet has been named the top buffet in the country by the both the New York Post and USA Today so, as you can imagine, it’s a popular place. That means there is often a line to get in, but we have a tip for you: Try the digital Fresh Txt kiosks that let you grab a virtual spot in line. They’ll text you when it’s your turn to chow down on the 500 food choices. Total Rewards Diamond and Seven Star members also have their own VIP line.

Another pro tip: For a limited time, you can get a discount on brunch if you’re a morning person. Get there between 7:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. Monday – Friday and you can get Early Bird Brunch for $29.99. ($39.99 after 10 a.m.)

6. Doggie Bag Deals

MR CHOW

Dining should always be on your list of things to do when you visit Caesars Palace and chances are you might have some leftovers, especially if you partake in the large, family-style portions at Carmine’s inside The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. If you want to go shopping or take in a show after dinner it would normally be impossible to carry a bag of leftover food with you. But Carmine’s has the solution. They will keep your food in their fridge for you and you can go back and pick it up after you’re done with your other activities. Problem solved.

MR CHOW can help you out with leftovers too. Maybe you want to sit and finish your drink or your conversation after dinner and don’t want to have a stack of food containers cluttering up your table. The staff will hand you a claim ticket for your leftovers and you can pick them up at the hostess stand on your way out.

7. In-Room Dining That’s Out of This World

Caesars Palace is home to a hotel inside a hotel. Nobu Hotel, the world’s first, is a boutique hotel within the larger resort. Stay here and you’ll enjoy perks like a 24-hour in-room dining menu curated by acclaimed chef Nobu Matsuhisa. We’re talking ramen, bento boxes, lobster bao buns and mochi delivered right to your room. And if you stay in the Nobu penthouse or villa, you can have a sushi chef from Nobu Restaurant downstairs come up and prepare a fresh dish for you.

8. Do Not Disturb

The Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis

If you’re looking for a room at Caesars Palace that offers a little bit more seclusion, you’ll want to check out the Laurel Collection rooms in the Octavius and Augustus towers. The rooms are located in a quieter area away from casino. They’re also conveniently located close to the Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis, the Bacchanal Buffet, Qua Baths & Spa and Restaurant Guy Savoy. The location will save you a lot of walking. Bonus: Some of the rooms are pet friendly.

9. Did Caesar Live Here?

The Forum Classic Emperor Suite.

Lots of people come to Caesars Palace and want to stay in room 2452, the room featured in the movie “The Hangover.” It was inspired by parts of the Forum Classic Emperor Suite, but the room you see in the movie was just a set built for filming. Film buffs will recognize the Forum Classic Emperor Suite from the movie “Rain Man,” however. The two-bedroom suite has a wet bar and a circular booth next to the iconic floor-to-ceiling windows that Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman danced in front of.

10. Dine Like a Baller on a Budget

Guy Savoy is a Michelin-starred French chef and his Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace serves the finest in gourmet food. If you want to try food from the acclaimed chef but the restaurant is not in your budget, we’ve got a hack for you. Head to Brioche by Guy Savoy near the hotel lobby for the chef’s grab-and -go concept. You’ll find sandwiches, desserts and the namesake flaky French pastry. Try sweet brioche with almond and candied fruit or Nutella and banana. There’s also savory brioche with prosciutto and cheese.
