CAESARS PALACE PUBLIC RESTROOMS, AND NOT SO PUBLIC RESTROOMS
Update November 15, 2012 I've been going to Caesars Palace for more than a decade, and I didn't
know there was a restroom in the high limit slots area. Well, to be honest, I don't play much in the high limit slots area
because even the lowest denomination games can be too rich for my budget. But on a recent trip, I stopped in to ask if they
had a restroom -- and there was one. A slot floor person pointed to a door in the center of the high limit slots area. When
I looked in the high limit slots area before I was certain that the door led to an office -- perhaps for a host, but I was
wrong. Behind the door is a small lounge with a big screen TV, snacks including candies and nuts and chips and pretzels, bottles
of water -- and the doors to the restrooms. So, I took a peek inside the men's room. I'm not sure everyone is
welcomed to walk in.
Actually, it was what you would expect anywhere else at Caesars
Palace. It's clean, and neat, and tidy and lives up to the high standards you would expect to see and you do see throughout
Caesars (see our additional report below). Plenty of hand towels in the restroom, with a touch free urinal and it's
a private restroom so you can lock the door while you do your business. High limit slot players -- playing $100 or more
per pull or push of the button -- deserve that, I guess.

What was different about this restroom, however, was that next to the
toilet (there are seat covers, not in the photo) is a telephone. I'm not sure that I would want to have a conversation
with anyone while doing my business in a restroom, but there's one just in case you need to call your casino host, boost your
credit line, or let the restaurant know you'll be a bit late for your reservation.

CAESARS PALACE PUBLIC RESTROOMS
December 20, 2011 Caesars Palace is known for its exceptional service and indeed the public restrooms at Caesars
are kept exceptionally clean. Below is a restroom in the Diamond/7Stars check-in office. Beautiful, well-kept,
very clean, paper towels within reach but unfortunately if you want a touch-free hand-washing experience you won't find it
here. However, with the supply of paper towels there, you can easily turn the water on and off using a hand towel, and
you can open the door handle with a towel as well.
Most of the public restrooms at Caesars look like the photo below.
This particular restroom is near the gift shop and the Central Restaurant on the first floor of the Augustus Tower.
It's beautiful and clean and well kept and the faucets are controlled by motion detectors and there are plenty of paper towel
dispensers. This has the modern design where the entrance to the restroom goes around corners so there is no need to
touch door handles. The soap dispenser is also motion-activated and I have to complement Caesars for having lots of
tissue dispensers in the rest rooms and also in the gaming pits there are boxes of tissues for players to use -- just ask
for them before you have to sneeze.
Caesars Palace also has a public restroom just outside the Forum Casino of Caesars at
the entrance to the Forum Shops which is at the base of the steps and escalator. This is one of the more spacious of
the public restrooms and like the other public restrooms at Caesars it is well attended and this men's room has
the reputation for being "the best" of the public restrooms at Caesars Palace.
HOTEL & CASINO, LAS VEGAS
Updated August 6, 2011 The
Rio has small, private restrooms for men and women in its high limit slots room. These are located against the back
wall. Clean and private.
M HOTEL & CASINO, HENDERSON, NEVADA
Updated August 6, 2011 The M Hotel & Casino is the new resort built on the far south
end of Las Vegas Boulevard in Henderson, Nevada. Instead of using the public restrooms on the casino level, you will
find very clean and modern restrooms with new "touch free" technology one level below the casino level on the banquet
BELLAGIO HIGH LIMIT RESTROOM
Update December 20, 2011 Below is a photo from the high limit men's restroom at Bellagio
in Las Vegas. Notice the pyramid of rolled cloth towels-- an elegant touch. But there is a touch-free sink there
which is also appreciated, and as you look at the sink on the right is a supply of paper cups and mouthwash. The
liquid soap dispenser is not motion-controlled like the water faucet is, so you will have to depress the top
of the soap dispenser. This particular public restroom is in the high limit slots area -- but anyone can walk in
and use it.
PECHANGA CASINO, TEMECULA
Update August 5, 2011 Some, but not all casinos have restrooms in
their high limit gaming sections. Pechanga Casino in Temecula has both a men's restroom and a women's restroom.
It's one of the nicest looking restrooms among Southern California casinos with decorator sinks and fixtures, and it is very
well maintained. In one photo below, the designer sinks and in another photo you see the private designer sink
and vanity. What impressed me the most is that there are paper towel dispensers next to each sink with a disposal basket
within reach which makes it easy to use the paper towels not only to dry your hands but also to turn the handles on the sink
off. Pechanga also provides a private sink in each of its stalls which also lets you shave or brush your teeth in private
after a long run at the casino. Pechanga gets a star for style and for decor and for privacy and for keeping these restrooms
clean and fully stocked with soap and towels. You have to love the lighted mirrors. The photos below are in the
men's room and I'm guessing that the lighted mirrors are also in the women's restroom.
BICYCLE CASINO, BELL GARDENS
Update October 17, 2011 The Bicycle Casino, which is also known as The Bike, went out
of its way to have a well designed men's room across from the upper limit poker room. This restroom can be described
as totally "touch free" because of the sinks with water faucets that work with motion detectors. Also, the
soap dispensers have motion detectors and the paper towel dispensers have motion detectors, and so are the blow-dry machines.
And yes, there are motion detectors on the plumbing and the urinals are also touch-free. The entrance to the restroom
has you walk around a corner so there is no need to touch a door handle going in or going out. If you don't want to
use paper towels, the touch-free hand drying machines work well. A few months ago, the new Dyson airblade hand drying
machines were installed, but on our last visit they were replaced with other, touch-free blow dry machines. The photo
below shows the touch-free sinks, a blow-dry machine, and a touch-free towel dispenser. Let me also add that the maintenance
crew at The Bike keeps the facilities clean, and they do a good job, too.
