Rooms are now on sale for the Octavius Tower at Caesars Palace, which will open Jan. 2 after 30-month delay. Located on the Flamingo Avenue side of Caesars Palace, the 23-story, 668-room tower features a private entrance, separate lobby and direct access to the Garden of the Gods pool oasis and gardens.
The rooms average 550 square feet and feature a media hub enabling guests to connect and stream direct from any mobile device to the 42-inch, high-definition television screen. They can watch videos, play music, browse the Internet, check emails, give presentations and more. The media hub is compatible with any Apple device and works with popular sites such as Pandora, Netflix, Hulu and Keynote.
Guests also have access to an interactive guest directory. Accessible through any mobile browser, the Web application will enable direct communication with concierge, housekeeping, room service, transportation, valet, bell and butler services along with resort information and insider offers. Room rates average $249 a night, compared with $179 for accommodations in Caesars’ other towers.
“As one of the first resorts to offer this integrated technology package, Caesars Palace is pleased to elevate the guest experience by making this service readily available to hotel guests,” Ramesh Sadhwani, vice president of hotel operations for Caesars Palace, said in a statement.
The opening of the Octavius Tower is the latest addition to Caesars’ revamped offerings. This year saw the opening of new restaurants (Central Michel Richard and Old Homestead Steakhouse), the return of Celine Dion and Elton John as headliners at the Colosseum, the addition of Rod Stewart shows to the entertainment lineup, the announcement of Shania Twain’s residency (starting December 2012) and famed Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s plans for a branded hotel, restaurant and lounge.
