What is the best hotel in Las Vegas? That is a question with no real right answer, but what is the best hotel in Las Vegas for you? That’s easier.
This Week’s Best Hotel in Las Vegas Pick: Caesars Palace Las Vegas
Yo[sic] have seen Caesars before, it’s been around forever, it was the example of a themed hotel before the volcano, the pirate ship or the Eiffel Tower. Caesars Palace is really a snapshot of Las Vegas over the past few decades and the one place in the center of the strip that seems to be ever expanding, ever changing and always keeping the idea of Las Vegas alive in your head.
Ten years ago, give or take a few years, I mentioned to Tony LaRocco (of The Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas) that it would be really cool if you could buy an all day pass to the buffets. His response was: “they (the casinos) would never do it because they’d loose money.” This was said with his typical Brooklyn, New York / NYU arrogance.
Guess what Tony! It’s happening all over Las Vegas and it’s been happening for some time now.
I don’t remember who started it – maybe it was Circus Circus or Excalibur or…I do know that a bunch of casino hotels are offering the All-You-Can-Eat-All-Day-Long Buffet now and they have been for some time. I’ve been displaying AYCEADL Buffet links on this website since this world-class-all-American-pig-out started. Simply stated the AYCEADL Buffet is just what it sounds like: The buffet’ers can visit a buffet at a particular hotel as many times as they like (in a 24 hour period) from the first breakfast serving through lunch and through the last dinner serving for just one admittance price. The amount varies according to the particular hotel’s policy. For instance *The CIRCUS CIRCUS Hotel is charging $25.00 for their All-You-Can-Eat-All-Day-Long buffet, (kids 4-12, $20.00 per day – kids under 4 eat free.) EXCALIBUR HOTEL is offering an *All-You-Can-Eat-All-Day-Long-Buffet for $24.99 weekdays and $29.99 on Saturday and Sunday. LUXOR HOTEL is charging adults $29.99 for their AYCEADL weekday buffet and $34.99 on weekends. Kids 5+ pay $17.99. PALACE STATION has joined the AYCEADL list, offering “The Feast” Saturday thru Thursday for $19.99 adult / $16.99 child. Friday Seafood Night is $29.99 adult / $26.99 child. Visit the LasVegasBuffetClub’s Buffet Page for more information and links to these (hotel) websites.
Here’s more information:

I was cruising the LA Times.com website page “The Movable Buffet: Dispatches from Las Vegas by Richard Abowitz” and found a post on (Sir) Elton John: (Sir) “Elton John’s final ‘Red Piano’ performance” (at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.)
I’ve been a bit bummed out over (Sir) Elton ever since he dumped Marilyn Monroe for Princess Diana, so to speak. The dude wrote a love song to MM, singing passionately about America’s fallen princess…Then the Brits lost a princess (tragic circumstances,) and once again – a great loss for the entire world.
But c’mon dude, write a brand new song, don’t steal Marilyn’s song. Of course I’m “speaking” of “Candle in the Wind,” the song (Sir) Elton wrote “for” Marilyn Monroe, then rewrote – changing a few words – and re-recorded the song “for” the Princess of Wales after her tragic death. Who did (Sir) Elton dishoner more: the desperately-gorgeous, Blonde American Princess, the preciously-beautiful, British Royal Princess or (Sir) Elton John?
Oh well, I digress, back to the great Abowitz: “Goodbye, Elton John. Though I never interviewed you at all, I saw the Red Piano that sold out while the shows around you did not.”
“And, it seems to me that you worked the Colosseum like a beacon amidst the neon, always knowing which hits to play to make the crowds applaud.”
“And, I would have liked to interview you, but I am just a blogger, and so you packed your shows in Vegas without the Movable Buffet.” Click this link to view “The Movable Buffet: Dispatches from Las Vegas by Richard Abowitz”
“Musician Sir Elton John performs during the final performance of his show “The Red Piano” at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace April 22, 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada. John played 241 concerts in the 4,300-seat showroom since he began his run as one of the resort’s resident headliners in February 2004.” read more from Zimbio.com
