Caesars Palace Octavius Tower Luxury: The VegasTripping Review 2012
Touching And Feeling Caesars Latest Erection
One step inside of the large hallway and you're immediately reminded of the size of the Augustus tower rooms, however the space seems to be used a bit more smartly, with more space to maneuver luggage into the room similar to the Encore and Wynn rooms. While color schemes are muted, the light picks up the X brace theme found throughout Caesars nicely, while the marble tile in a stacked brick pattern was spotlessly clean. Adjacent to the door are controls for the lights, as well as for the DND and Housekeeping lights, exactly like those at Encore.
Just to the left is the bathroom. Inside is a gorgeous double vanity, topped with black granite and a dark cabinet with mirrored doors underneath and etched mirrors above. Again the play on a theme comes into a play, with classic Caesars design elements thrown in a more bold presentation, from the wood detail on the cabinet (some of which was missing in my room) to the mirror etching and the sconces around the vanity. Also included is a small LCD TV for watching when you're indisposed.
Immediately to the left is a stand up shower stall with rain-style head. The tile in the bath picks up the same pattern, however with a light and dark striation of tiles which, while interesting, seems to not really work well with the bright striped wallpaper chosen. Shower pressure is ample and hot water aplenty.
Next door is an enclosed WC, with a high rider and plenty of neatly folded TP. No shatphones here... maybe people have realized in the age of cordless/cellular phones they are no longer needed.
On the opposite side of the room is a large spa tub with jets. The tub is ample deep for all sizes, and fills quickly with hot hot hot water for your use. I took advantage of this several times throughout the stay and it came to be one of my favorite things about the room. With the spotless housekeeping and ample goodies kept stocked by the housekeeper, I longed to take the whole thing home with me when I left.
As with all other rooms here, the products provided are Qua and they are amply nice to use. Nothing fancy, but the right thing for what's needed. Fortunately the hairdryer is newer than the previous 1985 models Chuckmonster found.
