Just a quick five-minute walk from the MGM Grand, the all-suite Signature towers offer rooms that are more like condos, geared toward those visitors looking to get away from Vegas' 24-hour soundtrack.
Canaletto
The tastemakers behind the Il Fornaio restaurant chain take their authentic yet affordable tastes of Northern Italy to a new level with this panoramic two-storey eatery.

Caesars Sports Book
When men find a sports book they like, they stick with it. And after they've been to Caesars, there's no going anywhere else.

Situated near the Sports Book in a ballroom, Caesars Poker Room has a large but private feel to it since it's away from the rest of the casino noise.

The District

Gambler’s Book Club
Everything you ever wanted to know about gambling can be found within these walls.
Grand Canal Shoppes
