    Hi guys... heading to Vegas May 27-31. I am able to stay at any CET property and get a comped room for the duration. I currently have an Octavius Tower Deluxe King Room reserved and all comped. My question is this: Is this the best room I can get, besides obviously staying in a SUITE? Or is another tower better at Caesars? My main thing is that we want to have a jetted tub, which the room appears to have. I normally stay at Ballys in their Tower Grand Suite rooms that have the jetted whirlpool tub but am looking for "something different". Any comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. :nworthy:

    I haven't stayed in Octavius yet. I have been in Palace Tower every time. It seems like the room in Octavius is similar to the rooms in Palace and Augustus but it seems like Octavius will have more electronic amenities. I am not sure I would like the Octavius location over Palace and Augustus. The next step up would be the Palace Tower Premium which is a mini suite with his and hers bathrooms, a double shower and of course a jetted tub. I don't know that Octavius or Augustus have anything similar and if they do, the hotel has kept them quiet. If it interests you, you probably have a good shot at getting it.

    Thank you for your reply. Any and all information is greatly appreciated. I will definitely look into that upgrade you spoke of. Might be worth the $20 tip/trick. Thanks again. :peace:

    I haven't stayed at Caesars Palace yet either, but will be staying there from 05/26 - 05/29. The Octavious Tower is the newest tower built and it opened earlier this year or end of December in 2011. I also have the Octavious Tower reserved for my 3 nights. I would think any type of upgrade from those rooms would be into a suite. After doing some checking, their is also a dedicated check-in area for Octavious Tower guests, so make sure to take advantege of that.:beer:

    The only downsides to Octavius are twofold. Don't expect to get a great view of the strip, if you're into that sorta thing. And it's a bit of a hike from Octavius tower to get to the casino and strip. Nothing major, but it's not like you pop out and viola! I think the best tower is Augustus. They have jetted tubs and you can ask for a view of the Bellagio fountains, which also gives you a view of the strip and the Cosmo and Paris. Ask for a room high up as possible and close to the strip as possible. Palace and Octavius are more towards the back of the property. Forum tower is the oldest tower, I think, and the views aren't as great and the rooms aren't as nice as the other towers, but it's closer to the front of the property, albeit more towards the forum shoppes area than the actual entrances to the hotel.

    We stayed in the Augustus Tower (I think that's the name, it's the older "twin" of Octavius on the south side of the property) and it was once of the nicest, if not THE nicest room I've ever stayed in over my years in Las Vegas.

    The people at the desk gave us this after coordinating a back-to-back reservation we had, so we did not have to check out and check back in. No $20 trick needed.

    I've been in both Octavius and Augustus towers at Caesars. Your question was is Octavius the best room (non-suite at Caesars) and the answer to that is yes, as they are newer than Augustus rooms. The actual rooms are very similar.

    That said, Augustus rooms are fantastic and the views are great. Personally, I wouldn't stay in Octavius again because the walk is so much further than the Augustus tower. The long walk past the Augustus elevators to the Octavius elevators, then the long walk down the hall was tiresome and made it difficult to just "pop" up to the room. I know there's all kinds of chatter on the board lately about what consitutes a long walk, and it's all relative. I'm just saying, in my personal opinion, Octavius was not special enough to warrant the additional half mile over Augustus.

    But Octavius is definately the newest!

    I loved my room in the Augustus tower. It was one of those rooms on the corner so I had a view of the fountains and of the (at that point) unfinished Octavius tower. It also had a doorbell. I still think that was the coolest "amenity" ever.
