Caesars Laurel Lounges Are Still Closed But Elites Get Extra Perks Instead
You guys know I love me some Caesars Laurel lounges (formerly called Diamond Lounges). I have previously ranked them all in Vegas and even made a trip to Atlantic City to check out how they matched up. Shockingly, Atlantic City’s lounges were better than Vegas. What was even better than that is Atlantic City was pretty much paying me to check them out too 😉. But what about right now, during the coronavirus pandemic? The Caesars Laurel lounges are still closed but they are offering some of their elite members extra perks at least to make up for it.
Shawn already shared his experience in Vegas on opening day and how checking in was a completely new procedure. And he noticed that the Laurel Lounges were closed when walking around but he wasn’t aware that they were offering some elite members extra perks because of the closure. I know a few readers reached out about whether the Laurel Lounges were open are not and that is when I saw this on Twitter.
Travel Zork shared a picture of what is being offered in Vegas right now while the Laurel lounges are closed.
Who Is Eligible
Only Diamond Plus (25,000 tier credits earned) and above are eligible for these perks. Seven Star members also get additional perks in the form of a food credit. That means freeloader Diamond members like most of us would not be eligible. Usually we have to pay $10 in reward credits to get into the lounge as it is but it doesn’t appear that is possible with this offer. I would pay $10 in credits for 4 drinks in a heart beat if it were.
What Do You Get?
Diamond Plus And Above Get:
- Four free drinks per day ($20 per drink) at
- Alto Lounge
- Lobby Bar
- Vista Lounge
- Spanish Steps Bar
- Venus Pool Bar
- Vanderpump Cocktail Lounge
Seven Stars members also get:
- Receive food credit ($10) at
- Old Homestead
Remember that status earning levels are reduced this year so if you hit the casinos hard early in the year you may be higher up the totem pole than you thought. Status has also been extended as well.
I think this is a good move on Caesars part. I understand them not wanting to open the Laurel Lounges yet and this offers their biggest gamblers a nice perk. This is how it used to work at Harrah’s New Orleans all of the time actually. You could go to the Laurel Lounge there or get 4 free drinks at any bar instead and I prefer that set up actually. It would be awesome if they allowed an either or situation but that is doubtful. The reason they offered it in New Orleans is because the lounge is so tiny there.
Do you think this is a good part on Caesars part even though the Laurel Lounges are still closed? Or should they have done more? It is sad that lower tier Diamonds are not included in the action but I understand why they did that. They want to only reward the true gamblers in their status ranks.
