Caesars Palace is getting a makeover in Las Vegas

There isn’t a casino quite like it in Las Vegas. Caesars Palace is the ultimate destination for millions of gamblers each year. The regal Roman style of the casino halls, the fabulous front entrance and the deluxe hotel suites attract some of the highest rollers on the planet.

But there’s change afoot. Caesars Palace hasn’t had much of a revamp since 2014 and the recent merger with Eldorado means the iconic Strip venue is being upgraded as Vegas reopens its doors following the coronaries shut-down.

This isn’t a wholesale refurbishment but Caesars and Eldorado are still ready to pump millions of dollars into revamping the Palace’s front entrance and most popular areas between now and the New Year. It’s all part of Eldorado’s “gambling first” strategy that will seek to attract even more players to their gaming pits for years to come, and follows the recent purchase of online betting firm William Hill.

“Caesars Palace brought a sense of grandeur to the Las Vegas Strip when it was built in 1966,” said Sean McBurney, regional president of Caesars Entertainment. “We’re proud to continue that legacy with a full reimagining of our main entrance.”

Caesars Casino Changes

If you’re visiting the Palace over the coming months you’re likely to see areas closed off and plenty of construction work. But the end results of the Caesars revamp promise to be worth it. Among the changes include:

  • A new entrance hall and porte-cochere with a 15-foot tall effigy of Augustus Caesar in the center.
  • Two state-of-the-art gaming zones will flank the enhanced entrance and act as the first port of call for gamblers
  • A new lobby bar – this could be amazing, although we’re yet to hear details of what it will look like
  • New pedestrian tunnels – this is actually currently being undertaken as Caesars seeks to improve the accessibility of its casino

What Caesars Casino Changes Mean for Players

While a new bar and shiny entrance hall is more than welcome, what players really want to know about is how the renovations will affect their gambling. Once the development is over in January the two casino pits will welcome thousands of players a day.

But it’s going to take time.

“Completely rebuilding the front entrance of one of the world’s most iconic destinations is no small task,” added McBurney. “We’re excited to get started and create a stunning new visual welcome for our guests.”

Here are the main changes players need to be aware of:

  • Only Caesars Rewards Diamond and Seven Star members can use the main valet off Las Vegas Boulevard
  • All other value guests will use the Colosseum valet, which is situated off Frank Sinatra Drive
  • The rideshare pick-up and drop-off points is related to the Vanderpump Cocktail Garden exit doors
  • Available entrances host express check-in and check-out booths while the main entrance is being refurbed

Thankfully, it doesn’t seem as though much of the actual gambling will be impacted by the changes. So you can still hit the roulette, blackjack, and craps tables all night long at Caesars.
