Attention all seasoned Caesars customers! Come January 2013, privileged high rollers can indulge in Caesar’s new charter jet hire, specifically catered to all affluent “regulars” who frequent the casino resorts. 1500 annual flights will be provided by Republic Airways as part of the Caesars Rewards Program, ensuring prompt travel across the multitude of Caesar-owned properties. In addition to flights, special hotel rates and vacation packages are available as an extension to this gambling getaway.

The rewards program is great incentive for all big spenders to drop bigger bucks, but I can’t help but wonder how much this frequent flyer perk actually costs. Though rates were non-disclosed, I can safely assume this aircraft premium is truly a sky-high hit to the wallet!

 

  

The BlowUpHall 5050 Hotel: Luxury Accommodation that Truly Blows the Mind

Hotels just got a little more hi-tech!

Welcome to BlowUpHall; an art hotel located in the old Polish city of Poznań. This pioneering luxury lodging is named after Michelangelo Antonioni’s cult film classic, “Blow Up.”

At Blow Up Hall 5050, there is no reception area or hotel room numbers. Guests don’t select a suite, but rather pick a card which designates avant-garde rooms that are tailored by theme. Rooms range from zebra-striped suites to simplistic white-washed walls, and keys are replaced by iPhones which utilize IT technology to source out and unlock individual suites.

Room service is ordered by using the suite’s touchscreen televisions, but the clincher of this radical accodomation has to be the 24-7 CCTV surveillance cameras that film the entire stay of each guest. While seemingly invasive, the Blow Up Hall 5050 hotel assures modesty and discretion is utilized at all filming times, and for no benefit other than creating a “Big Brother” effect.

A bevy of recreational entertainment is available, ranging from spa/steam rooms to local shopping at the nearby city centre. A seven-minute walk to Poland’s Old Market Square transports tourists back in time with 16th century architecture, shops and historical landmarks.

For all those seeking an unconventional stay, Blow Up Hall 5050 is truly an innovative lodging experience; combining sleek, modern motifs against a Renaissance backdrop.
