Harrah's Resort Atlantic City

Caesars Entertainment Resorts

Try your luck

Today I want you to meet Caesars Entertainment, the hotel/casino company that owns or runs multiple resorts dotted across the US and even one in Canada!

Why I like Caesars Entertainment:

My affinity for Caesars Entertainment experiences began due to the benefits I received as a casual gambler at my hometown Caesars Entertainment casino.  Earning rewards for my play, I was able to take those rewards and use them on trips to premier places like Las Vegas, Atlantic City or New Orleans. I was getting discounted rates and sometimes even resort credits to spend on food. Pretty soon, I would look for a Caesars resort when I travelled for business.

The Brands:

The brands under the Caesars umbrella are fun but each has a different vibe. Of course, everyone knows the Caesars brand, arguably the most famous Las Vegas hotel ever.  It’s luxurious and reminds me of a time when dressing up was a must for a night out. The Harrah’s brand has a more familiar feel reflecting the flavor of the cities they are found.  Isle Casinos are smaller local resorts that feel like visiting your family for a weekend. And the Horseshoe brand is comfortable like a fine steakhouse with leather tufted seats and wood paneling on the walls.

There are several other brand name hotels in the Caesars Entertainment portfolio.  Paris Las Vegas and Planet Hollywood Las Vegas are glitzy with great theming and a party atmosphere.  The Row in Reno (El Dorado, Silver Legacy and Circus Circus) dominate the downtown landscape and cater to every budget. Harvey’s in Lake Tahoe is situated so all rooms have some view of the lake (and is also connected underground to Harrah’s Lake Tahoe). Tropicana Atlantic City is oceanfront and sits on the famous boardwalk.

My Favorites:

#1: Harrah’s New Orleans – Right at the edge of the warehouse district bordering the French Quarter.  The gasolier sconces and fleur de lis embellishments throughout make it very New Orleans. Views are either of the Mississippi River or the city so you can’t go wrong in any room. Restaurants are plentiful both at the hotel and in the casino, and the city’s most famous restaurants are either a short walk or cab ride away. FYI – Sometime summer 2024, this hotel will be renamed as Caesars New Orleans with a brand-new tower including a Nobu Hotel and Restaurant. Can’t wait!

#2: Harrah’s Lake Tahoe – Probably the most awesome thing for a hotel ever: all the rooms here have two separate bathrooms!  The vibe is mountain ski lodge, no surprise since skiing is available a couple blocks away at Heavenly Ski Resort. A relatively new outlet of the popular Gordon Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen is available across the street at Harvey’s (accessible via underground tunnel during those snowy winter days!).  Pro-tip – Make reservations at Friday’s Station on the 18th floor for a sunset dinner overlooking Lake Tahoe.

#3: Caesars Palace Atlantic City – On the Jersey Shore, Atlantic City is a completely different vibe than Las Vegas. For those wanting a beach front vacation with a bit more edge, this is it. Caesars is right in the heart of the boardwalk and the beach is steps away from the building!  A few of my favorite celeb chefs have places here. NOBU, Gordon Ramsey Hell’s Kitchen, and Guy Fieri Bar-B-Que Joint as well as Superfrico, a turnt-up supper club that is the new “must-do” experience in AC.  Rooms are very fresh due to a recent remodel, and they added a great new roof-top pool deck.

#4: Harrah’s Cherokee, North Carolina – I lucked out here when I wanted to do both the Biltmore Estate in Asheville NC and   Dollywood in Pigeon Forge TN in one trip.  About an hour west of Asheville and 1.5 hours south of Dollywood this place was the perfect homebase for my adventures. At the eastern edge of the Great Smoky Mountains this resort is a great vacay with a mountain cabin feel, a tasty selection of eateries and some pretty big-name entertainment throughout the year.

There are many other Caesars Entertainment places I have stayed and enjoyed over the years including every one of the Las Vegas properties.  Kansas City, St. Louis, San Diego and Phoenix also are great and there are more that I still have yet to visit. Skip the cookie cutter hotels and give one of these a try next time you travel.


I’ll leave you all with one final thought.  If you plan to do any gambling at any of these properties, sign up for Caesars Rewards if you are not already a member. Use that loyalty card for everything while you are there.  Even if you don’t gamble you can earn and burn points shopping and dining!
