    So is Caesars that much of a pain to get around inside due to it's sheer size? I plan on staying in either the Augustus or Octavius tower.
    Thanks

    Some say it is just fine.

    Some say it is a pain.

    Some say it is just not worth it.

    Personally, we are not big Caesars' fans. Those new towers are quite some distance from the gaming floor, and a time zone from the shops. Just one opinion.

    It's HUGE, but fairly easy to navigate when you get acquainted with it.

    The casino kinda curves around, so it's easy to lose direction orientation at first.

    The hallways by the shops and restaurants and such (not the Forum shops) is a real rat maze, however.

    We stayed at CP for many years. I had knee issues and moved to Paris for a year or two simply because CP just was too big with too much walking.

    Not bad at all, but would recommend augustus tower over octavius as its closer to casino floor.

    I love Caesars! My favorite place to stay. It has everything. It took my a few days to get used to the layout but it's fun getting lost in a casino. What helped me remember the layout was that I would picture the casino as a horseshoe kinda layout with a couple shortcuts in the middle.

    Its definitely a big place, I have got lost in there a few times myself. The forum shops are the size of most normal malls in a big city. I enjoy stopping by there when in Vegas, but not sure i would stay there, unless a great opportunity arose. Same with MGM, that place has more nooks and crannies than I have ever seen. No idea how I found my way out the first time I went in there. Places I was at that I highly doubt I could ever find again.

    I'll have to try it again next month at Cesar's . The other times I went there by the time I actuall found the casino coming from the mirage, all I could think about was getting the F out off there. So I've never even gambled there. I guess if you stay there it's probably different. Like mgm. I always got turned around in there until I stayed there. Now it easier to navigate.

    And isn't the Augustus tower the closet one to the strip too right?

    Great casino.

    However, it did take me 3 days to find my way out once. Felt like a scene from Lost.

    I won't lie. It is a pain in the ass to get around in there. But the right room makes it worth it because you can soak away those aches and pains in those wonderful jetted tubs!

    I m staying at Caesars for the first time next month for three nights before moving to Paris for three nights. I love Paris (got a red premier room this time), but I have always wanted to stay at Caesars and since I got an Augustus Room comped I can't turn it down.

    At first I was worried about the size, but I have always enjoyed the size of MGM Grand so I dont think it will be an issue. I have not spent a lot of time at Caesars (never played or dined there) but I am more worried about finding my way around the Forum Shops. The few times I went through there I always get lost.

    I'm sure I'm older than most of you folks, so here's my take on the daunting distances at Caesars:

    I'm on VACATION for God's sake! Where am I rushing? It's 148 DEGREES outside.

    I love the restos, the pool, the spa and the sportsbook. Maybe I'll hang out in the sports book with a vodka tonic while I'm journeying to the faraway Forum Shops.

    Same thing with MGM.

    We stayed at Caesars for the first time in the Augustus Tower a couple months ago, and all I heard leading up to our trip was how big it is and how much of a pain in the butt it is getting around. Once we got there, I wondered what everyone was talking about. It's a big property in total, but the walk from the Augustus elevators to the casino or the strip is really not bad. All in all, Caesars is top-notch in my opinion. Luxury-wise, I believe it's the best of the CET properties. If you get a comped Octavius or Augutus room, I wouldn't hesitate to jump all over it!

    Ditto on that. I stayed at Caesars over ten years ago in the Roman Tower and we weren't crazy about the room then. I also got lost almost every time I went to Caesars. When I saw that I could get a comped Augustus room I took it and kept my fingers crossed. It was easy to get everywhere from that tower. I also learned to navigate it pretty well. I'm staying there again in the August Tower in February.

    You won't regret it. We stayed in the Octavius tower a couple months ago and it was great. Little bit of a walk, but not bad.
