When the Octavius Tower at Caesars Palace opened in January, guests were undoubtedly impressed with the new tower’s 668 rooms, including 60 suites and six villas. The biggest reveal of all, though, wasn’t the Anichini linens, the 42-inch high-def TVs or the oversize whirlpool bathtubs—it was the in-room technology. Upon check-in, guests are invited to use the Octavius app via laptop, tablet or smartphone. By touching or clicking on tabs, they can then instantly request anything from extra blankets to a spa appointment. Every whim and desire is just a click away.
