Caesars Palace has a spacious poker room with 25 tables that are sealed off from the rest of the casino. The poker room in this place can actually be pretty hard to find if you don't know where you're going (tip: it's next to the sportsbook). The room is very bland both in appearance and game offerings. You won't find much other than no-limit running here. However, they are the mecca for daily poker tournaments in Las Vegas.
This is a perfectly fine spot for anyone wanting to play $1/$2 or $2/$5 no-limit. The max buy-ins for these games are much larger than is customary, $500 and no-cap, respectively. They have a pretty singular focus at Caesars of spreading these no-limit cash games, so it's not a great spot if you're looking to play anything else.
Caesars has a huge separate poker room dedicated solely to tournament play. As such, they offer the largest amount of daily tournament action in the city. Tournaments run at 9:00 am, noon, 2:00 pm, 3:00 pm, 7:00 pm, and 10:00 pm with buy-ins ranging from $65 to $225. The entry fee relative to total buy-in for these events tends to be quite large, so it's hard to expect much of an edge in the long-run. But if you're looking for a poker tournament in Las Vegas, Caesars is a great bet to find one.
This room is incredibly spacious, so it's very comfortable in that aspect. Some may find regard the poker room being sealed away from the casino's foot-traffic as a plus, but I find it to be drab and depressing. There's something nice about feeling like you're in the thick of a bustling casino and not isolated away in a separate room full of only poker players. The room can be really quiet though. Cocktail service here is fine but nothing extraordinary. There is no free WiFi available.
Caesars' poker room staff is generally highly regarded. This is not a particularly complicated poker room, so things tend to be pretty straight-forward for the staff to handle. Every day is pretty much the same: lots of daily tournaments and lots of people playing small-stakes no-limit.
Players get $1 an hour in comps credited to their Total Rewards card. There's nothing special about that, but it's better than a kick in the butt.
