Caesars Atlantic City The newly expanded Caesars Atlantic City feels more like being in ancient Rome than on the Jersey shore: the hotel's spectacular six-story atrium lobby was designed to look like the Forum of ancient Rome.

The $280 million expansion project includes the new Centurion Tower with 640 guest rooms, bringing the number of guest rooms to 1,144. The luxurious rooms are decorated in warm Tuscan shades of gold, green, red, and cream.

The new Palladium Ballroom accommodates up to 2,000, with a foyer for pre-function cocktails. Four new meeting rooms with separate entrances are designed as Italian villas.

The hotel has 12 restaurants ranging from casual dining at the independently owned Planet Hollywood on the boardwalk at Caesars, the new Rotunda restaurant, or formal dining at the award-winning Bacchanal. Dine-arounds are easily arranged.

Like hotels in Las Vegas, Caesars Atlantic City's exciting decor makes the hotel an attraction unto itself.
