Caesars Rewards App Helps Escorts and Drunk Guests Locate Rooms

Oh, like you would’ve read this story if the headline didn’t include the words “drunk” and “escorts.” We know how you are.

So, the Caesars Rewards app (Caesars Rewards is the Caesars Entertainment player loyalty club) has rolled out a new enhancement: “Find My Room.”

The “Find My Room” tool helps hotel guests, and presumably their guests (not just escorts), find rooms in the often sprawling expanses of Las Vegas resorts.

Caesars feels your pain. When you’re feeling no pain.

We gave the new functionality a test drive so you’ll know how to find your room the next time you’re blitzed at a Caesars Entertainment hotel. Sorry, the next time you’re responsibly imbibing at a Caesars Entertainment hotel. Because lawyers.

Once you download the Caesars Rewards app (it’s free, of course), you’ll want to connect it to your Caesars Rewards account if you haven’t already done so. If you aren’t a member, become one. Casino loyalty clubs are the best way to get more perks in Las Vegas.

In app parlance, this is called the “splash screen.” Irony alert. Because it’s a pool. Please try and keep up.

The Caesars Rewards app is a convenient way to check your Reward Credits and Tier Credits, if you’re into that kind of thing.

At the bottom of the app, click the red “Caesars Rewards” button. It’s a little more burgundy than red, but we are a blog, not a Pantone color book.

Next, in the upper right, click on “My Account,” then “Find My Room.”

Imagine how great life would be if there were giant red arrows pointing things out.

On this screen, you’ll enter the hotel, the “wing” or tower and your room number.

We just entered random room numbers for our test. The rooms have to actually exist for the function to work, otherwise you get an error message.

Please don’t pester the people in this room. It’s for illustrative purposes only.

From what we could tell, no matter which hotel you’re staying in, the app then shows you directions to your tower starting from the hotel’s front desk.

The directions are animated, so there’s that.

Depending upon the kind of person you are, you’ll either experience unbridled joy or crushing disappointment.

Resort maps are very useful, but there are some missed opportunities here.

To make the map useful, you have to find the starting point, the hotel’s registration desk.

This is not particularly helpful if you’re drunk or an escort. If you’re drunk, good luck finding anything. Wasn’t that the point of the new functionality in the first place?

If you’re an escort, repeatedly visiting the registration area, with its heightened security presence, isn’t ideal.

On the bright side, if the app just shows people where a hotel’s towers are, escorts have that down cold, so no big loss.

In case you ever decide to stay where parts of “The Hangover” were filmed.

We aren’t entirely sure why you’re so obsessed with how this app functionality will impact escorts, but we aren’t going to judge.

We tried rooms at Flamingo and Caesars Palace, and the maps did provide some simple guidance about how to navigate the resorts.

We sort of expected the app would be more specific, somehow using GPS to guide us from wherever we are to where we need to be, but Google Maps has spoiled everyone and we’re not even sure how that would work with vertical movement between floors.

Note: It’s possible Google Maps “have” spoiled everyone. We are not entirely sure because we attended public school.

One of our biggest gripes when staying at hotels is remembering our room number. It seems so simple, but nobody’s writing their room number on a room key card (that’s not safe if you lose the key) or carrying around that little card folder thingy they write the room number on. So, you take a photo of the card folder thingy. That seems very 2008.

In the Caesars Rewards app, once you’re on the map screen, your room number goes away. Come on, Caesars Rewards app. Please think this through. The room number should be on the screen along with the directions to the tower. Hitting the back button is definitely very 2008.

Anyway, quibbles aside, it’s clear Caesars Entertainment is listening to customers and trying to make their app as useful as possible.

These casino apps can provide simple access to things like room reservations, show tickets (the app connects customers with Ticketmaster), deals and discounts, win/loss statements, casino credit options and a magical item called “marketing preferences.” There, you can choose which amenities you’d like to be pestered most about.

Thanks to our pal and Vegas watcher Marc Meltzer for pointing us toward this handy new addition to the Caesars app.

If you’re a Caesars Rewards member or Caesars Entertainment customer, you’ll find something of use on the Caesars Rewards app. Here’s more.

The new “Find My Room” function may save you some headaches. Not the real kind, of course. You’re drunk. You’re getting those whether you have the app or not. Hydrate, already.

    First of all thanks for all the great content. I really enjoy this site
    Now for the critique. The new find my room feature of the caesars app is just a way to track you while in vegas. Since it’s an app you installed and allow it to know your location …….. think a little here they did not do this for the drunks and escorts they did it to see where you go when you should have been in their casino gambling your life away

      No, Bob. It’s not a phone app that casinos use to “track” guests…it’s the player’s cards.

      Casinos can’t force a guest to gamble, so there’s zero benefit to knowing exactly where a single guest is on hotel property

    Escorts are having a rough go in the pandemic, male and female I am told, escorts deserve a little technological boost, this will help them spring into action… I really like the term “escorts”, it implies a sense of togetherness, cumaraderie I mean camaraderie… Sometimes “escorts” just does not carry the weight of other more colorful terms, take for instance the hallway connecting the Delano hotel from the Mandalay Bay casino, it happens to be a ripe area, filled with potential employers/employee’s. My brother and I call it “Hooker Hallway”, it has a nice ring to it… Maybe if they add enough water we can call it “Escort Estuary”, but I digress…

    I think it’s a great idea. Im from here and have found it very difficult to find that special someone when I need her and in a hurry. Their prices are damn ridiculous but hey…I love it

    Three decades ago I took my then best friend to Las Vegas for his first trip, you know it was a long time ago because we stayed at THE hipster joint of that time, The Tropicana… I was teaching him video poker when he nudged me and said “hey check out these chicks checking me out”, I looked up and burst his bubble by saying “dude they are working”. He took great umbrage, he declared himself a great find, how dare I question his obvious magnetism… The next thirty seconds included 27 winks, nods, and gyrations. Finally he said “OK, they are working”…

    The Caesars app lists your hotel and room number and other information on the Home Screen once you check in! Also very handy!
