Get Your Palace On 

Where #luxury reigns supreme.

You deserve to live a little, so why not treat yourself to a newly-renovated Palace Tower room at Caesars Palace? Every room is remodeled, so you’re guaranteed to experience a room that’s new. We’re huge fans of the double-door shower, which takes you from the bathroom to the bedroom. You’ll also dig the hip decor with clean lines, grey interior and bold accents.
