It is owned by Caesars Entertainment Inc. and is better known as simply The Rio. As the name suggests, all its rooms are suites, numbering 2,522 in all with sizes ranging from 600 to 13,000 square feet. The hotel was named after the lively Brazilian city of Rio and incorporates many aspects of its culture. Its towers are covered in signature purple and red glass and the rooms have floor to ceiling windows. Several private villas are also available for VIP gamblers.
