Caesars Palace marks 50 years with a full-scale revamp of its original Roman Tower.
What a difference 50 years makes: Caesars Palace’s original Roman Tower, seen here on the left, is celebrating a half-century with a bold new look and a new name: Julius.
As Caesars Palace prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year, the property entrusted a familiar face—interior designer Michael Medeiros, the creative director of the Los Angeles-based firm KNA Design—with the responsibility of revamping its iconic Roman Tower. Reborn in January as the Julius Tower, the 587-room centerpiece of the resort reflects “a more boutique-like” aesthetic, says Medeiros, whose previous collaborations with Caesars include outfitting several of the property’s luxury villas. Julius Tower guest rooms now incorporate neutral color palettes broken up by bursts of warm freesia and Aegean blue, as well as playful accents like mirrored headboards, chaise lounges reminiscent of traditional Grecian chairs, and custom artwork that merges old and new by layering drawings of Vegas-showgirl costumes over black-and-white photographs of classic Roman statues—a concept Medeiros describes as “perfect for Caesars because it shows guests the property doesn’t take itself too seriously.” Hail, Caesars! 866-227-5938
