Bye, bye Rome: Say hello to Caesars Palace’s new, elegant Julius Tower

Caesars Palace has reinvented Rome…in its own unique way.

The classic Roman Tower is now a thing of the past as Caesars Palace introduced its brand new and luxurious Julius Tower this week. The hotel tower makeover cost $75 million and will welcome guests starting Jan. 1, 2016. Way to ring in the new year, right?

The tower has 587 rooms. There are also suites available for those who want to jazz up their stay. Designed by Michael Medeiros of KNA Design, each room has a modern look with a touch of whimsy. The canary yellow and cool blue accents complement the room’s neutral toned furnishings. We’re digging the awesome headboard, complete with bronze-framed mirror panels. There’s also a seating area where you can kick your feet up and relax…or study the room’s design to see how you can replicate it in your own home. (How does a trip to West Elm or IKEA sound?)

The bathroom feels more like a spa, with its stone walls, oversized shower and the ultra-posh vanity mirrors. We’re just crazy about all the mirrors in here.

The new Julius Tower is the latest part of the iconic Vegas hotel’s $1 billion investment. If you decide to stay here, you’re in luck. This tower is right in the middle of everything, so the casino, restaurants and nightlife are just a quick walk away.

Now all we’re missing are grape leaves, a toga and wine served in a chalice. We’re sure Julius Caesar would be proud.


Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my handsome hubby, adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies.
