Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was Caesars Palace. Already one of the largest hotels on the Strip, the property will add 668 more rooms with the opening of the new Octavius Tower. The sixth tower at the resort complex promises a level of exclusivity over the other accommodations at Caesars, with a private entrance and separate lobby as well as primo access to the Garden of the Gods pool area.
Sporting dark wood furniture and marble floors covered by patterned carpets, Octavius rooms start at 550 square feet and boast pillow-top mattresses with Anchini linens and 42-inch flat-screen TVs. Marble-tiled bathrooms come complete with whirlpool baths, glass-enclosed showers, and Gilchrist and Soames bath products.
If you’re thinking about a Vegas vacation in 2011, American Express Travel has you covered. They’ve got rates that range from $30/night at the Riviera Hotel and Casino to $55/night at the Hard Rock to $149/night at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas (with a $100 resort credit included!). Many properties are also throwing in sweet extras like room upgrades, spa credits, or show tickets. Though anyone can score these low rates, American Express cardholders get the bonus perk of double rewards points when booking through Amex Travel (and can even pay for the vacation with points). Book by July 13 for travel through December 31.
THE VALUE: Rates are discounted up to 40 percent.
THE CATCH: Most of the low rates for this deal are for midweek stays. Rates don’t include resort fees charged by some hotels.

- The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is the newest hotel on the Strip and has earned a following with younger guests thanks to a concert venue that hosts free, multi-night mini-residencies for emerging musical acts.
- Though the Tropicana may be one of the older casinos on the Strip, a 2011 makeover means the hotel stays fresh – stay tuned for the opening of the Nikki Beach nightclub and pool club later this month.
- The Palms wins points for its outrageous Fantasy Suites, like the 4,240-square-foot Kingpin Suite with its own regulation bowling alley.
