How did the name "Caesars Palace" come to be?

Caesar's Palace is one of the most well-known casinos in Las Vegas. Its lavish, ancient roman themed atmosphere attracts guests and visitors from all over the world. The massive casino, variety of shops and restaurants, and amenities is just the start of what this unique property offers. But if you go back in time, you'll discover that this famous location wasn't always known as Caesar's Palace, but had a different name prior. URComped CEO, Craig Shacklett, interviews Oliver Lovat, Managing Director of Denstone REA Consultants, to learn more about the history of Las Vegas and it's big-name casinos. These interviews were conducted through URComped's newest B2B social platform, Casino Marketing University, which provides information from industry experts to casino management, marketing, and operations teams. 



Oliver Lovat tells us a story that is not in the books. While he was writing an essay on the history of Caesars Palace, he had the opportunity to sit with Stan Mallin, who was Jay Sarno's business partner on creating Caesars Palace. He told Lovat that they had a brand named "The Cabana" with the trading name "Desert Palace" and had built "Cabana Hotels" in Palo Alto, Dallas, and Atlanta. Their next step was to come to Las Vegas and build the BIG Cabana which would be known as "Cabana Palace." That became the working name for this Las Vegas property.

Mallin informed Lovat that he and his business partners then left for Rome to buy statues to go on the driveway of the Cabana Palace property. As they were looking around sites in Rome, they decided not to call the property "Cabana Palace," but instead, they changed the project name to "Hadrian's Villa." That name clearly didn't last and they ended up coming up with "Caesars Palace." 

They probably came up with tons of other names for this property that weren't mentioned and didn't make the cut. So what if Caesar's Palace had a different name? Would it look or be any different than how it is now? How important is the actual name?

After telling this story, Lovat leaves us with a question. “If you were to change the name of the property to something else, how would it affect it?”

Casino Comp Questions with Craig Vol 18.

Celebrity Cruise Line Pricing Update

We just updated the Celebrity Cruise Line prices on the website, because we realized some of the pricing in the last few weeks was way higher than it was supposed to be. We are always going to give URComped members the best pricing out there. Ideally, it's comped, or if its not comped, heavily discounted. Some of our cruise line partners give us prices per person and others give price us per cabin, and we mass upload the pricing in that way, and it was accidentally switched this last time around. BUT NOW  that has been fixed. So check the pricing again, because there are more comps and the prices are better.

Does URComped honor Caesars Rewards Benefits when booking?

Yes. So if you are a Caesars' member and receive their tier status benefits, URComped will honor any benefits when booking through us. 

Can URComped book at any Caesars properties?

 Yes and no.  We're focused on a handful of Caesars properties right now and that is Caesars Palace Las Vegas, Flamingo in Vegas, Harrah's Lake Tahoe, and Harrah's New Orleans. Through our contract with Caesars, we have connections everywhere, but it's not something we will advertise on the website.  We recommend those properties because we have a stronger relationship with them.

Not sure what URComped is?

URComped works with Casino Partners to give Qualified Members new offers (comps) to Caribbean Resorts and Cruise Lines that they have never been to/ played at before. Think you may be qualified?? SIGN UP (IT'S FREE) upload offers that you've received from either land-based casinos or cruise lines to see what NEW COMPS you qualify for!
