Caesars Palace announced plans to open the Octavius Tower , a 668-room hotel tower including 60 suites and six
luxury villas. The resort’s sixth tower will offer a unique luxurious resort
experience with a private entrance, separate hotel lobby and direct access to
the Garden of the Gods pool oasis and gardens. Rooms will go on sale Thursday,
September 15, for guest arrivals beginning January 2, 2012.
The Octavius Tower marks a major milestone in the two-year renaissance
of Caesars Palace , which began in March 2011 with the return of Celine
Dion and encompasses the recent launch of Rod Stewart at the Colosseum and
opening of Central Michel Richard, by its namesake award-winning chef. Newly
announced projects also include the return of Elton John (to open September 28), Old Homestead Steakhouse (to open winter
2011), Nobu Hotel, Restaurant and Lounge (to open summer 2012) and Shania
Twain’s Colosseum headlining residency (to premiere December 2012).
“We couldn’t be more pleased
with the timing for the opening of Octavius Tower ,” said Gary Selesner , regional president of Caesars Palace . “With very high hotel occupancy over the last six
months and the unqualified success of the Augustus Tower - Octavius’ sister
tower - we look forward to offering our guests the new luxury rooms along with
an elevated service experience in both towers.”
Spacious guest rooms,
starting at 550 square-feet, will offer a modern, luxurious décor incorporating
earthy shades of browns, grays, taupes and beiges, offset with pops of green
and splashes of deep red. Designed by Michael Medeiros of KNA Design, the rooms
will feature marble floors and stylish patterned carpets that complement dark
wood furnishings and brushed chrome fixtures. King-sized beds with sleek
headboards, plush pillow top mattresses and luxurious Anichini™ linens will
provide ultimate comfort, while living areas create an inviting ambiance with
plush velvet sofas, contemporary chairs and chic stone tables. Dark wood desks
with granite overlays offer an ample workspace with custom cabinetry containing
a premium mini bar. Accommodations will also include framed 42-inch flat panel,
high-definition television screens, convenient media hubs with multiple outlets
for easy connectivity, and bedside docking stations with iPod capabilities.
An innovative application for
iPad/iPod Touch devices will offer guests direct accessibility to communicate
with room service, housekeeping, reservations and front desk services. Additional Octavius Tower ’s amenities will include nightly turn-down service,
upon request, and in-room coffee service.
Marble-tiled bathrooms will
feature contemporary striped wall coverings, oversized whirlpool bathtubs and
enclosed glass showers with multiple shower heads. Flat screen televisions will
be set above granite double vanities stocked with luxurious Gilchrest &
Soames bath amenities.
The opening of the Octavius Tower marks the completion of the $860 million Caesars Palace expansion. Construction for the Octavius Tower began in 2008 with the erection of the tower’s
exterior along with three luxury villas which opened in September 2009. The
build-out also included the Garden of the Gods pool and garden expansion
(completed in March 2010), the addition of 263,000-square-feet of convention
and meeting space (completed in July 2009), and the renovation of the Forum Tower (completed in October 2008).
