Hi, wondered if anyone has stayed at any of the hotels in the Ceasers Pocono Palace Resort near Pensylvania. I cannot believe there is a resort like this! Those champagne shaped baths and the love-heart shaped jaccuzzi is something else!! I cannot decide if it is just "tacky" or really quite a "special place"? I am always looking out for unique resorts and when I came across this I just could not stop reading all about it. I decided we MUST experience this place but went on to read the reviews about it and a fewwere not very good. I am not sure if this is in the L.L. portfolio or not. It would be interesting to hear what others think of this place.
Speaking as somebody who has never set foot in the Poconos, please take my thoughts with a grain of salt. I think many Americans (at least those well-traveled) would agree that the "champagne-glass bathtub"-type hotels are pretty tacky and cheesy and are great for a fun but low-budget type of honeymoon or vacation. I don't think it represents the romance you can find in America and I would imagine even in the Poconos there are classier places to stay! It's kind of like Disney Land/World or Las Vegas - fun to visit, but not to take too seriously and not truly representative of America as a whole.
Yes Claasenam, The more I think about this place, the more I agree it gears towards the tacky side. It is very "different" from any resort I have seen before.Saying that, I might be pursuaded to spend a couple of nights there just for the experience! Who knows!
HI Mary J...Go for it! Yes, it is tacky however, I know of a few very nice, respected people who have ventured there! It actually is a honeymoon destination also. There are many other activities such as skiing, cross-country, snow mobiling, etc. The region is quite lovely.
