Caesars is located at the heart of the Vegas Strip, on the corner of Flamingo Road near the exit from the I-15, making it easy to find. There is a valet service for VIPs and a self-parking option via Frank Sinatra Drive. The regular valet service charges, but the cost depends on the length of your stay and your status in the Caesars Palace Total Rewards program. Once you reach Platinum level, you will be allowed to park for free.
The defining characteristic of this casino is volume! The clientele is usually made up mostly of young people, and is a blend of international tourists and locals, drawn to what is a hotspot for entertainment and socialising in the city.
