Caesars Casino Windsor New Years Eve

Overview
Wear comfortable walking shoes. . .this place is huge, possibly matched in size only by such casinos as Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and Horseshoe Hammond in Indiana. Located across the river from Detroit, near the exit from the United States-to-Canada tunnel, Caesars Windsor Hotel & Casino offers some challenges to U.S. residents who arrive as tourists, but it's a beautiful facility with two floors of slots and table games, a poker room, several food and beverage outlets, and a massive entertainment venue and conference center.

There is a large indoor self-parking garage, as well as valet. Both are complimentary for Seven Stars cardholders. If you self-park, and have a lot of baggage, it can be a long walk to hotel registration especially if you find yourself accommodated in the Forum Tower.

Unlike in the United States, players as young as 19 may gamble in Canada. Also, be aware that children younger than 19 are not allowed outside the Augustus Tower. This means they may not use the pool or fitness center, or eat in any of the restaurants (other than Spago Trattoria), and must walk on the outside of the building from the self-parking garage.

Casino
The casino is open seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The entire casino is non-smoking.
The casino is equipped with Caesars proprietary Total Touch system that allows customers to order drinks and tobacco, redeem free play, check their Caesars Rewards account balances, and receive real-time offers based on play.
On the casino floor coffee and soft drinks are complimentary, but there is a charge for alcoholic beverages. Cocktails, wine and beer start at around CN$5, but, keep in mind that liquor is served in one ounce pours, wine is five ounces. Last call is 1:45 a.m., with alcoholic beverage service suspended between 2 and 11 a.m. Self-service coffee and soft drink service is available on the first floor next to the Main Cashier, and on the second floor near the Bacchus Bar, just before the exit from the casino to the Augustus Tower lobby.
ATMs (or ABMs as they're known in Canada) are located throughout the casino. You also can redeem your slot tickets, break bills and exchange currency. A limited number of self-service kiosks also will cash your slot tickets, converting your winnings to U.S. currency. (Note that the preferred exchange rate for Seven Stars cardholders is available only at the cashiers.)

In December 2006, Harrah's announced that it would change the name of the casino to Caesars Windsor. At the same time, the operators began construction of a new 27-story hotel (the 'Augustus Tower'. It opened in 2008 and provides a 5,000-seat entertainment centre, and 100,000 square feet (9,300 m 2) of convention space.

The Caesars Rewards Centre is open from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. Sunday to Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Food and beverage
Options include Neros Steakhouse, Spago Trattoria, Legends Sports Bar, Pronto Café, Tim Hortons and the Market Buffet. While all accept Reward Credits, comp dollars cannot be used to purchase alcoholic beverages. There also is a Johnny Rockets and Augustus Coffee Express. Johnny Rockets, Spago and Tim Hortons accept Reward Credits, but at a 2:1 ratio. In addition, Caesars has opened The House Lounge, located on the main level gaming floor next to the expanded e-pit. The bar features product from such local breweries as Frank Brewing Co., Collective Brew and Founders Brewing.
Seven Stars cardholders who get vouchers to use at certain restaurants cannot get “doggie bags” if they have leftovers. (The policy regarding leftovers is a bit more flexible if your bill is more than the value of the voucher and you’ve added payment in the form of cash or Reward Credits.) The simple way around this? If you tend not to eat all your meal just bring along a couple zip-top plastic bags and/or some small resealable plastic containers.


Hotel overview
There are two separate towers.
The Augustus Tower is the newer of the two and is nearer to hotel registration which the Forum Tower, quite a distance away, shares.

Insider Tip

As part of the Forum Tower renovations, there no longer are dressers in the rooms, just a folding luggage rack, a long ottoman at the foot of the bed that can hold one suitcase, and two nightstands each with one small drawer.
The Forum Tower is 'adults only' no children allowed, and is undergoing renovations which are expected to be completed by spring. Some renovated rooms already are available for occupancy.
NewDécor in both towers is similar; the style classic, but contemporary. You'll see touches of the ancient Rome theme, but it's not overwhelming. Cream colors and light grays make for an inviting and airy environment.
Preferred rooms in the Augustus Tower overlook downtown Detroit and the river separating the United States and Canada. Bay rooms are particularly nice, with floor-to-ceiling windows, and a spacious living/sleeping area. All rooms have refrigerators and coffee-makers, but bathrooms are a little on the small side.

There is a spa (see below), pool and fitness center in the Forum Tower. The pool and fitness center are complimentary for all hotel guests. Use your room key for access.


The Spa by Windsor Arms

The Spa by Windsor Arms is a full-service health, wellness and beauty spa located on the second floor of the Forum Tower. Guests can experience individualized Eastern and Western treatments featuring organic and pure serums, oils and applications, as well as a “calming and relaxing atmosphere, with trained therapists, in the luscious surroundings of [the] spa,” according to the Caesars website. Seven Stars cardholders are eligible for a 20 percent discount on all services. Note, though, that, while Reward Credits are accepted, it’s at a 2:1 ratio. In addition, cash/credit card purchases do not earn Reward Credits as they do at other Caesars outlets.

ARIIUS Nightclub
ARIIUS, an upscale, premium nightclub, offers “a world-class Vegas experience – the first of its kind in Windsor,” according to the Caesars Windsor website. Located in the former VIP Table Games area, steps from the Skybridge and across from Caesars Essentials gift shop, according to the site, “ARIIUS brings a level of sophistication and intrigue along with boundless fun and excitement to Windsor’s entertainment landscape.” ARIIUS is open Fridays and Saturdays from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. The nightclub also will be available for private corporate and personal functions during non-operating hours.

The Colosseum
Caesars Casino Windsor New Years Eve
The Colosseum is Caesars entertainment venue. Be mindful of enhanced security screenings.

  • There are dedicated lines at hotel registration, Caesars Rewards and the buffet.
  • Neros Steakhouse and Legends offer a complimentary amuse bouche (small appetizer) to diners who show their Seven Stars card.
  • The Laurel Lounge(formerly called the Diamond Lounge) also has a dedicated line and other special benefits (see more on this below).
Seven Stars Lounge
There is no Seven Stars Lounge, but a large Laurel Loungefeatures a buffet which offers selection of soups, salads, cheeses, crudité, wraps and dessert. Alcoholic beverages are available for purchase.

Caesars Casino Windsor New Years Eve Buffet

The lounge is located on the lower level adjacent to the Market Buffet.
There are reserved tables for Seven Stars cardholders, as well as a menu which offers a special hot entrée and sandwich, as well as a dessert not available on the buffet.
While there is no charge for a Seven Stars cardholder (and up to three guests) or a Diamond Elite cardholder (and up to one guest), a Seven Stars or Diamond Companion cardholder unless otherwise qualified by his/her own play receives complimentary access to the lounge only once a day and may not bring a guest. Note that there is a 1,000 Reward Credit charge per person for Diamond cardholders who earned less than 25,000 tier credits last year or year-to-date. This is a per entry charge and the cardholder may bring up to one guest during each visit. Diamond Plus cardholders are allowed one complimentary entry per day, and may bring up to one guest at no charge. Subsequent visits on the same day are 1,000 Reward Credits per person.
Current hours (subject to change) are
Friday: 3 to 11 p.m.
Saturday: – Noon to 11 p.m.
Sunday: Noon to 8 p.m.


Should you choose this for your Annual Retreat?
It's quite a distance from Detroit Metropolitan Airport, and even the Detroit City Airport, but it's certainly a possibility. With Canadian law limiting the use of comp dollars to food and non-alcoholic beverage purchases, it might be difficult to use your entire $500 folio credit. For U.S. citizens, currency conversion can be a bit of a hassle. Places to visit and activities outside the casino include wineries, hiking Point Pelee Park, Pelee Island (winery and bicycling), and bicycling along the river.
