When was the last time you visited one of the hotels and casinos on the Las Vegas Strip? As locals, we tend to shy away from the traffic and tourists unless we have family and / or friends in town. But one of the most famous hotels on Las Vegas Boulevard recently revealed a multi-million dollar renovation.
Caesars Palace, easily one of the world’s most renowned Las Vegas resorts, has completely revamped their main entrance in a big way. According to News 3 Las Vegas, they have renovated the entryway and ceiling. Next time you are there, you will notice a new crystal dome and chandelier. That new light fixture weighs more than 3,000 pounds and features over 12 thousand crystals. When you look skyward at the domed ceiling, you will see paintings of Roman gods.
Underneath that domed ceiling and chandelier, visitors will now be greeted by a 15-foot tall marble statue of Caesar Augustus, also known as Octavian, who was the first official Roman emperor. He ruled from 27 B.C. to 14 A.D. News 3 Las Vegas reports that the statue is made from imported Carrara marble.
Out-of-town visitors to Caesars Palace will now be able to enjoy a cocktail or two at the new Galleria Bar while they wait for the check-in lines to dwindle a bit. It is located in the hotel lobby “between the main entryway and the entrance to the outdoor Roman plaza.” Of course, there is gaming at the new Galleria Bar and it is open 24 hours.
Make sure you and your guests get a chance to see these new renovations at one of our city’s finest resorts. “Hail Caesar!”
