Las Vegas and Caesars Reveal an Endless Array of Meeting and Event Spaces

Palace Tower - French Empire Villa Bedroom

English poet William Blake wrote that “none can desire what he has not perceived.” Yet, at Caesars Entertainment’s luxury villas, the senses are dazzled with the ultimate in elegance, service and hospitality—and even unspoken wants and needs are manifested.

Michael Li, director of luxury hotel operations and butler VIP service at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, sees this ability as an important facet of service for Caesars Palace.

“Whatever the guests can think of, we can provide,” he says. “We also can provide what they cannot think of—to impress them, to anticipate their needs, so as to create this unique stay experience with Caesars and so they can become repeat customers.”

Those wishes are granted across the 25 sumptuous villas of Caesars Palace, which range in size from 2,750 square feet to 11,000 square feet and are constructed with exquisite craftsmanship, opulent materials and sleek design worthy of, well, Caesar himself. And, of course, each villa comes with at least one private 24/7 butler and an exclusive elevator. The important consideration here is that these luxury villas aren’t just for high rollers and celebrities—groups seeking incredibly unique and memorable meeting and event spaces can book them.

In this city, where the newest, the best and the biggest is eagerly sought after, 10 of these villas opened in October as part of a US$100 million renovation of the property’s 1,181-room Palace Tower.

“Every time the guest comes in, he can have a different experience [with] the theme of a different villa,” adds Li, referring to the various theme décor across each unique villa, including French (Claudius), Spanish (Marcus Aurelius), Greek (Constantine), British (Titus) and German (Beidermeier).

Depending on the villa chosen, amenities can range from overseeing the five-acre Garden of the Gods pool complex, views of the Strip, a golf simulator, private terraces, marble floors, stunning artwork, state-of-the-art screening rooms, huge TVs with surround sound, custom-designed fish tanks, private Jacuzzis and pools. Think extravagant, as other amenities experienced in some of the villas include a pink onyx bathtub, a custom-carved walnut Adler pool table, gold-plated chandeliers, 24-karat bathroom hardware with semi-precious stones, a baby grand piano and a fully equipped outdoor kitchen.

Or perhaps you would like to utilize the David Rockwell and Rockwell Group-designed “east meets west” rooftop Nobu Villa as a private showroom. Located atop the yuzu-ginger-scented oasis of the boutique Nobu Hotel inside Caesars Palace, the Nobu Villa’s 10,300 square feet of luxury include an omakase sushi bar, a media room, a massage treatment room, a steam room, three bedrooms, a terrace with unrivaled views of the Strip, a full outside kitchen and a Zen garden with a custom Onzen tub.

Multilingual Guest Services

Catering to the increasingly diverse business world, requests do not have to be made in English. In fact, Li says 95 percent of the VIP butlers speak at least two languages.

“So we are fully capable of providing the special amenities customers are looking for,” says Li, who speaks three languages.

For these guests, multilingual butlers offer translation services both inside and outside of Caesars Palace, from booking show tickets to accompanying guests on shopping trips.

Martha Morales, recently named general manager of the world’s first Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace, also sees the ability to speak a guest’s language as not only an essential part of the stellar service, but as a general industry trend.

“Our guests, whether meetings or leisure, are coming here to have a great time. They are looking for diversity [but also] someone to speak their language,” she says. “I think it’s definitely a trend and I think we will continue to see that.”

In an increasingly foodie-centric world, people are drawn to not only Caesars Palace and its celebrity chef restaurant offerings but also to the food made famous by the name Nobu. Such fans don’t just have brand loyalty, they have brand fanaticism.

Morales says the perk of Nobu food helps make the guest experience unforgettable.

“It’s unbelievable. With over 40 restaurants around the world, Nobu food has a huge following,” she says. “The Nobu Hotel here is the first place you’re able to get Nobu food 24 hours a day. You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner in your Nobu room; you don’t ever have to step down to the always-busy restaurant. You can also host events and meetings and parties with Nobu food when you’re not able to do that in the restaurant. You’re able to enjoy it in the comfort of your own suite.”

But, of course, guests at the Nobu Hotel have access to priority reservations at the Nobu restaurant.

The ability to provide any food requested is part of Caesars’ exceptional service, according to Li.

“If [guests] want to have an event or party hosted in their villa, then we are able to bring in every single restaurant, create a world buffet inside of the villa for them, with different stations with different ethnic foods—and the butler can pass champagne or hors d’ouvres,” he says. “Those are [some of] the unique experiences that they cannot have anywhere else in the hotel—all the different restaurants. They can only experience that in their villa.”

If groups need more than the 11,000-square-foot villa at Caesars Palace, several villas can be connected to form an 11-bedroom, 30,000-square-foot mega-villa. If that’s not enough, and you still need a wow-inducing space, book the 4,100-seat Caesars Palace Colosseum, home to such headliners as Celine Dion and Elton John.
