Tucked into the center of Caesars Palace's Roman empire is a Japanese-themed boutique hotel that provides a luxurious and relaxing escape from Las Vegas' nonstop action.
Co-owned by celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa and partners like actor Robert De Niro, Nobu Hotel is a hidden gem of sorts. Upon entering, visitors will be forgiven for thinking they've walked into a small forest. That's because the lobby is created entirely with hand-carved blocks of wood from three different types of trees.
Nobu Hotel features 163 rooms and 18 suites. The décor aims to provide comfortable simplicity. There are purple and aqua accent pieces along with decorative cherry blossoms and custom art by Japanese artists. Calligraphy is suggested through patterns on the main wall and in the carpeting. The beds are draped in fine Italian linens. In the bathrooms, guests will discover stone tiles, an oversized walk-in shower with multiple showerheads and a teak stool. Natura Bissé made the bath products, which boast a rosemary and white tea scent, exclusively for Nobu Hotel.
The world's largest Nobu Restaurant and Lounge, spanning 12,775 square feet, is located on the ground floor. In addition to the main dining room, there's a sushi bar and several private tables -- including three teppanyaki tables. With more than 325 seats, guests can indulge in Chef Nobu's signature items: black cod with miso, rock shrimp tempura, yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño and squid pasta. A 15-person bar and adjacent lounge with semi-enclosed pods is the perfect place to sip a drink before or after you dine.
Guests at Nobu Hotel can expect to receive unparalleled personal service. You are welcomed with Chef Nobu's signature green tea. During an evening turndown service, robes are placed on the bed with an exclusive pillow and bath menu, and an evening tea with macaroons is served. Plus, there are a wide range of VIP access and amenities available to guests from Caesars Palace, such as complimentary entry to the fitness center at Qua Baths & Spa and the pools. You may opt to enjoy an in-room spa treatment, and whenever you want to dine in Nobu Restaurant, you'll receive priority seating. Guests at Nobu Hotel can also indulge in Nobu's cuisine 24 hours a day through a special in-room dining menu, which includes sushi and a selection of bento boxes for a customary Japanese breakfast.
Designed by David Rockwell and the Rockwell Group, the interior throughout the resort is modern and incorporates natural design elements such as stone, wood and paper. A bank of 20 cloud-like light fixtures comprised of folded paper illuminates the restaurant.
While being an ideal retreat, Nobu Hotel is always just steps away from all the world-class entertainment, shopping and gaming of Caesars Palace.
