Caesars Palace Renovates at 50

Iconic Caesars Palace turns 50 on August 5, 2016, and is undergoing a $75 million renovation of its Roman Tower, which Caesars has renamed the Julius Tower, in honor of former Roman General and Emperor Julius Caesar. The renovation of the tower’s 567 rooms (new décor at left) is the first in 15 years.

Caesars Palace intends to celebrate its 50th year of operation by undergoing the first renovation since 2001 of the 567 rooms in its Roman Tower.

The $75 million renovation is to be completed by January 1 and will help to celebrate the casino’s 50th birthday on August 5, 2016. The tower also is renamed the Julius Tower, in honor of Julius Caesar, as the casino attempts to rebrand itself.

“Caesars Palace has a well-earned reputation for providing guests with impressive accommodations, unmatched culinary offerings, and the best in gaming and entertainment,” Caesars Palace Regional President Gary Selesner said. “With this renovation of our original tower, we are proud to continue this tradition and can’t wait for guests to experience the all-new Julius Tower.”

The new, classically inspired rooms are designed by Michael Medeiros of KNA Design and combine textured and lightly reflective fabrics with a custom-upholstered headboard as each room’s focal point. Rooms also have 55-inch high-definition televisions, mini bars, and English-themed toiletries and amenities.

Bathrooms have a double sink floating vanities, stone showers, and custom-lighted vanity mirrors.

Room rates will average about $150 per night, plus fees and taxes, according to Caesars.
