Caesars Palace is embarking on a multimillion-dollar renovation of its main entrance, main casino and porte-cochère to create an extravagant entryway, redesigned gaming areas and a new lobby bar. Construction is set to begin this month, with most of the project anticipated for completion by New Year’s Eve.
The main entrance will be rebuilt from the ground up, matching the glamour of the lobby. A dramatic, soaring dome and barreled ceiling over a stunning 15-foot-tall statue of Augustus Caesar will welcome hotel guests. Additionally, two new gaming pits, flanking the enhanced entrance, will be added, as well as a lobby bar. There will also be a renovation of the legendary domed table games floor.
“Caesars Palace brought a sense of grandeur to the Las Vegas Strip when it was built in 1966, and we’re proud to continue that legacy with a full reimagining of our main entrance,” said Sean McBurney, regional president, Caesars Entertainment. “Completely rebuilding the front entrance of one of the world’s most iconic destinations is no small task, and we’re excited to get started and create a stunning new visual welcome for our guests.”
From July to December, guests can expect the following changes: main valet off Las Vegas Boulevard will accommodate Caesars Rewards Diamond and Seven Star members only; the Colosseum valet will accommodate all guests; rideshare pick-up and drop-off will relocate to the exit doors next to Vanderpump Cocktail Garden; and express hotel check-in/check-out kiosks will be placed at all available entrances.
Family gatherings are extra special this year and we chose to celebrate a milestone birthday in New Orleans.

Within a ¾-mile radius, we could walk to the National WWII Museum, Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Sazerac House, Harrah’s Casino, the Shops of Canal Place and numerous restaurants.
