KNA Design plots Caesars Palace Las Vegas’ Julius Tower

Caesars Palace Las Vegas is reimagining the hotel's original tower, the Roman Tower, which will be renamed as the Julius Tower when it opens in 2016. The $75-million Las Vegas hotel tower renovation is part of an ongoing brand transformation of the Las Vegas resort that was established in 1966. 

Expected to welcome its first guests on January 1, 2016, the new 587-room Julius Tower will be inspired by Roman history, since the name of the new Julius Tower pays homage to Julius Caesar.

Designed by Michael Medeiros of KNA Design, the interiors of the new Julius Tower rooms will have a neutral palette with a pop of freesia yellow and a touch of Aegean blue. The all-new rooms in the Julius Tower will also have textured and lightly-reflective fabrics. The focal point of the room will be a custom-upholstered headboard incorporating bronze-framed mirror panels.   

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Other highlights of Julius Tower guestroom amenities will include 55-inch TVs, Beautyrest Bouvet Island Mattresses, a mini bar and English-themed Gilchrist & Soames in-room toiletries and amenities.

The entry and bathroom walls will have a two-toned stone pattern. The bathroom will also have a double sink floating vanity.  There will be a stone shower with glass enclosure with two sides of glass for an open feeling; it will have both handheld shower and shower head.  The custom-lighted vanity mirrors will be designed and inspired by a modern interpretation of an iconic column of Caesars Palace.

Some guestrooms will have a custom-designed chaise lounge inspired by a Greek Klismos chair. The new Julius Tower rooms will also have custom artwork that will combine photographs of Roman statues with hand-drawn costumes inspired by the Vegas "show girl."

Upon completion of the new tower, Caesars Palace will have 3,980 guestrooms and suites. The 85-acre resort has 25 dining options, including the Bacchanal Buffet, as well as celebrity chef-branded restaurants by Gordon Ramsay, Bobby Flay, Nobu Matsuhisa, Guy Savoy and Searsucker Las Vegas. This December, the property will open MR CHOW Las Vegas.
