21Exclusive! Our photos and video of the ultra luxury Vegas Suite at Caesars Palace You Can’t Buy (But You Can Get Married at Caesars)
By Alison Blackman and Anthony Sabatini aka. Leather and Lace
There are plenty of high end suites in Las Vegas, However, the very highest end suite, the Augustus Suite, located in Caesars Augustus Tower, oozes elegance, opulence and charm, more than glitz. Money cannot buy you a night in this particular suite although there are similar suites in other towers of the hotel that run $30,000-$50,000 per night. The Augustus suite is reserved by invitation only for very special guests of the hotel. Some of the exclusive clientele include Johnny Depp (for his birthday), and Barbara Streisand who was there while filming her last movie. The 10,000 square foot suite comes with it’s own butler to see to your every need. It is equipped with a master bedroom and four additional bedrooms all with walk in closets and bathrooms with stunning views, plus a spacious living room, a dining room with a long table that seats more than 14 people, a golf simulator room, pool room, exercise room, massage room, a screening room, kitchen an pantry, and more. This makes the suite very comfortable for your friends, family, staff, and entourage.
As with all of Caesars Palace ultra suites, the security is impeccable. You cannot even get close to the suite unless someone escorts you in (even our executive contact was not able to get upstairs without clearance and without being escorted). In other words, the merely curious won’t even know that even the elevator is there.
But Alison and Tony aka. Leather and Lace got in to see it and we videotaped it. The video, narrated by Alison Blackman aka. “Lace” runs 11.11 . If you want to see where Johnny Depp partied on his birthday, and Barbara Streisand hung with her entourage and staff while filming her last movie, this it it!!
Feeling the Love? Why not Get Married at Caesars: You may never be a guest of a celebrity or VIP in the Augustus suite, but one way to justify a stay in one of the regular suites or the (for rent) luxury suites is to get married at one of Caesars three indoor or two outdoor wedding chapels. The Juno Garden is a little jewel that seats 128 guests bench seating in a natural setting with a lovely grape arbor detail. The Venus garden can seat 114 guests on bench seating featuring Roman architecture around a relaxing koi fishpond and fountain. The inside chapels include the Classico which seats up to 196 guests in traditional seated style. The Tuscana seats up to 8- guests, and the Romano is suitable for more intimate gatherings up to 35 guests.
Wedding Packages which include a suite for the bride and bridal party to get ready are then available for the couple that evening. We toured thee chapels and we were told that couples can personalize their ceremony with just about anything they can think (after all, this is Las Vegas) from a midget Elvis officiant to the bride being carried in on a liter by a bunch roman of “Roman servants.” Whatever you can dream up can be produced, limited only by your budget and your imagination. Good to know is that Caesars wedding packages can be surprisingly budget-friendly, costing less than half of what a traditional hotel wedding of the same caliber might be in another large City. We were impressed with the quality and expertise of the wedding consultant on the premises, as well.
Staying and Playing at Caesars: Even if you don’t get married at Caesars, you can stay in one of Caesars entertainment’s 9 resorts, or at least plan to visit Caesars Palace while you are in Las Vegas(it’s a must). Have a meal in one of the world class restaurants. Browse the Forum Shops and bring home something special to remind you of your trip. People watch at the nightclubs, or check out the casino (maybe Lady Lucky will smile on you). Caesars Palace is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2016. The resort spans 85-acres at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, just 10-minutes from McCarran International Airport.
