    I'm sure this has been tackled previously, but can someone rank the Caesers Towers please. Also interested in Pros and Cons of each.

    Tackled previously? Not a specific ranking, but discussions weekly.

    We prefer Augustus - with a fountain view if possible. Octavious is newer, but pretty much the same, just more walking.

    Palace Tower in very nice. Closest to the pools. I have not stayed in any of the other towers. I'll be there in a week. Not even sure that I would want an upgrade unless it gave me a view of the fountains!

    We stayed 11 nights in a normal King room in Octavius for our wedding/honeymoon this past September and it was great. Not a bad walk to the pools and buffet, but a bit of a walk to the Strip or main casino areas. A lot of walking in general. That was really the only downside (other than price if you're not comped, obviously). That said, I would definitely stay there again or recommend it to family/friends looking to splurge. Our choice was between that room or a regular King room at Bellagio and we were happy with our choice afterwards. The whirlpool tub sold my wife on the decision before the trip and I would have been cool with either. Afterwards, I was glad we made the choice we did. The room was very nice and had everything we could have possibly needed unless you need a second bathroom for some reason.

    I have a long trip report with pics and everything from that trip here: http://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/showthread.php?t=86330

    The ranks are the following: 1-5 (5 being the top, YMMV)
    1. Roman Tower
    2. Forum Tower
    3. Palace Tower
    4. Augustus Tower
    5. Octavius Tower


    Avoid the Roman unless you prefer "ancient" Rome.

    The Forum Tower (where i am booked in August), has nice rooms however, only the top floors have views. But the rooms have been recently done over if the view is of no importance.

    The Palace Tower comes in different flavors. The rooms are bigger than the Roman and Forum, better bathrooms, etc. The Palace will have mountain/strip views and pool views. The Palace pool views are considered Premium if you have a pool view (my option when checking in).

    The Augustus and Octavius Towers are the cream of the crop (excluding Nobu).
    They have their own entrance point on Flamingo Blvd. They have standard rooms and premium rooms in both towers depending on personal taste. The Augustus Tower is closer to the Strip and therefore has the better view of the Fountains of Bellagio and the Eiffel Tower. The Octavius will still have views of the Fountains, Eiffel Tower, but it's a little more difficult to get the "prime" view at Octavius.

    The Roman and Forum rooms are near the Casino and the Forum shops. The other Towers are closer to the pool and the high rent district.

    The Towers (excluding the Roman), will suffice for most people.
    For me, since i'm going in August, i would like a pool view which i'm hoping to get at the Palace Tower. If it was November, the Forum Tower would do just fine.
    Just remember, the Roman and Forum Towers are closer to the Strip, the Palace is a little further away, near the pool, and the Octavius and Augustus are further back from the Strip........however, like i said, these two Towers have a separate entrance and can be useful if you have a car going to/from Caesars etc. The Octavius and Augustus as well as the Palace, have pool views in case you prefer that over the Strip view.

    It's mainly the view. The Octavius sits further back from the Strip but closer to the pool. The Augustus is closer to the Strip and has a better view of the Fountains. Look at both Towers as hotels on Flamingo Blvd........there're both great, but one (Augustus), is IMO the better Tower overall because of the views.

    1. Augustus with a fountain view. Don't mind the strip view either.
    2. Palace is fine, can't remember the details.
    3/4 haven't stayed in Forum or Octavius
    5. Never chose the Roman.

    Trying Nobu next week. I read some rooms are small. Just want to experience it once.

    We usually stay at PH, as my host is based there.
    We're at Caesars next weekend, and I had asked her about Nobu, but she said the rooms are indeed small, and booked us in Octavius.
    However, I'm thinking now I might ask for Augustus with a view...

    Please post your experiences at Nobu. i have a reservation next month in a Luxury Room at Nobu ? high floor/Strip view.I normally stay Octavius Pool view so will be interested in your comparisons. While size is important it is not the only thing!

    Do Octavius and Augustus guests receive priority at the Flamingo entrance? The Diamond and Seven Star only sign seems to be up every time I try to park there.

    We're both just plain old gold players, but we got the Augustus tower a few trips back by the luck of the draw. Usually we could park there, they would ask if we were in the Augustus/Octavius towers. Sometimes the Diamond/7star sign was up and except for once, "Mr. Lincoln" got us in.

    The luxury view at Nobu is terrible. While the room furnishings are chic and luxurious, the rooms are small, AC is noisy, and overall I would still choose Augustus or Octavius over Nobu.

    I am pretty sure they have nicer bathrooms. With a bidet and a jacuzzi tub and maybe a little more.

    Quick question. I've stayed in both Aug./Oct. and really like the rooms and their nice size. I am booked at Nobu for Labor Day weekend and intrigued by the designs and furnishings but understand they are quite a bit smaller. For some reason, neither Augustus or Octavius is available that weekend for my dates but looks like I can get Palace. How would you rate Palace vs. Nobu? Obviously Palace would be bigger but don't know what other considerations you would take and whether you feel Nobu is worth perhaps one stay to check it out for the different boutique nature. Just curious - happy for any input from anyone. Thanks!

    The premium rooms in Augustus and Octavius are the same as the others, in my experience, but at the ends of the hallways and thus have corner views in two directions. Also just a bit larger as well. But bathrooms are identical as far as I have seen, with jetted tub and double sinks but no bidet.

    Sorry that I missed your post - having just finished a 5 night stay in a Nobu Luxury Room, I agree completely with your summation.

    The view was largely over rooftop air-conditioning units with a full view of the Paris Eiffel Tower if I stood in the corner and moved the lampshade out of the way. There was no pleasant view from anywhere that you would normally be standing/sitting/lying in this room 79xx

    I just got back from Caesars this evening. I booked a Forum room with the hope of upgrading to Palace Tower. I had 2 hours to kill before checking in Aug.4th. and decided to check my bag in and explore Caesars property and pool. I am glad i did. I kept the Forum room because it's very close to the pool via Appian Way. I learned the shortcuts which i used all week. The Forum rooms are small (about 350 sq ft) but newly remodeled and as a solo guest it was no big deal. The Forum rooms state no view, but lying in bed i could see the Rio Ipinema Tower.....not bad.
    The Forum casino is my favorite because it's near the sports book, Pussycat Dolls lounge, Pure, Numb, Mesa Grill, Shadows, etc.
    And did i mention the Venus Pool?
    Check out my TR this weekend. My observations will be loved or hated........
