Starwood members have enjoyed select perks at Caesars properties since January 2014, including the ability to redeem and earn Starpoints, but now Starwood Platinum members can enjoy significantly more perks in Vegas by signing up for VIP Access with Caesars.

New benefits include:

  • VIP line access for hotel check-in
  • VIP line access at participating restaurants
  • VIP line access for taxis and entertainment venues
  • Preferred entry into participating Las Vegas nightclubs
  • Pool access at all Las Vegas resorts
  • Priority lines at casino cages and the Total Rewards Center

Waived resort fees, unfortunately, are not among the perks available to Starwood Platinum members.

Starwood and Caesars Partnership

To sign up, you’ll need to stop by a Total Rewards Center at Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood or The Cromwell in Vegas and show your SPG Platinum credentials. You’ll also need to register for the SPG/Total Rewards partnership online, if you haven’t done so already.

Additionally, Starwood is offering “up to 40% off” redemption stays (through February 28, 2016) at Caesars Entertainment hotels booked on or before June 14. If you’re planning a weekend trip to Vegas, this deal could lead to a decent redemption—for stays during the week when rates are lower, though, you’re likely better off saving your Starpoints.

Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express

There’s no telling how much longer these cards will be around and available for new applications because of the Marriott takeover, so now might just be the perfect time to apply. Apart from hotel redemptions, you can transfer Starpoints to over 30 airline partners, and now also transfer points from Starwood to Marriott Rewards at a 1:3 ratio, opening up even more redemption options.
