Cae­sars Palace

Forbes - - Leaderboard Luxury Lineage -

a brief his­tory of the le­gendary las ve­gas ho­tel, which turns 50 this month. Jay Sarno changed LAS Ve­gas for­ever in Au­gust 1966 when he opened its first themed re­sort: Cae­sars Palace. Bor­row­ing el­e­ments from the Ro­man Em­pire, Sarno fol­lowed the prin­ci­ple that no amount of ex­cess was enough. In its first 50 years Cae­sars Palace has ex­panded from an op­u­lent 14-story ho­tel with 700 rooms to a small city with six tow­ers, 4,000 rooms, a 636,000-square-foot shop­ping mall, a 4,300-seat the­ater and nearly a dozen celebrity-chef restau­rants. You can also still do a lit­tle gam­bling there.
