Caesars Palace, originally opened in 1966, is a luxury hotel & casino in the heart of the Las Vegas strip. Caesars currently has five hotel towers, Augustus, the newest, Palace, Centurion, Forum, and Roman, totalling over 3300 rooms. Construction of a sixth tower, Octavius, expected to add an additional 665 rooms has been halted with only the exterior of the building completed, due to a current lack of demand for rooms in Las Vegas.
