Caesars Palace Begins Reservations to New Octavius TowerSeptember 14, 2011 By: Michele Herrmann
Caesars Palace is beginning to take reservations for its new Octavius Tower, a 668-room hotel tower including 60 suites and six luxury villas. Rooms go on sale Thursday, September 15, for guest arrivals beginning January 2, 2012.
The resort/casino’s sixth and latest tower will tout a luxurious setting complete with a private entrance, separate hotel lobby and direct access to the Garden of the Gods pool oasis and gardens.
Starting at 550 square feet, guest rooms will offer a modern, luxurious décor incorporating earthy shades of browns, grays, taupes and beiges, offset with pops of green and splashes of deep red.
Designed by Michael Medeiros of KNA Design, the rooms will feature marble floors and stylish patterned carpets that complement dark wood furnishings and brushed chrome fixtures.
Guests will slip into king-sized beds with sleek headboards, draped with plush pillow top mattresses and Anichini linens. Living areas will be graced with plush velvet sofas, contemporary chairs and chic stone tables.
Accommodations will also include framed 42-inch flat panel, high-definition television screens, convenient media hubs with multiple outlets, and bedside docking stations with iPod capabilities.
Guests will have direct accessibility to communicating with room service, housekeeping, reservations and front desk services through an innovative application for iPad/iPod Touch devices.
Marble-tiled bathrooms will feature contemporary striped wall coverings, oversized whirlpool bathtubs and enclosed glass showers with multiple shower heads. Flat screen televisions will be set above granite double vanities stocked with Gilchrest & Soames bath amenities.
Octavius Tower’s opening marks the completion of Caesars Palace’s $860-million expansion. Construction began in 2008 with the erection of the tower’s exterior along with three luxury villas which opened in September 2009.
The build-out also included the Garden of the Gods pool and garden expansion (completed in March 2010), the addition of 263,000 square feet of convention and meeting space (completed in July 2009), and the renovation of the Forum Tower (completed in October 2008).
Octavius’ opening also ties into a number of milestones in the Strip-based resort/casino’s two-year renaissance. Among them, in September, the lobby ushered in Central Michel Richard, a 24-hour operating restaurant named after the award-winning chef.
Current projects in the works include the upcoming Old Homestead Steakhouse (to open winter 2011) and Nobu Hotel, Restaurant and Lounge (to open summer 2012).
