The world’s first Nobu Hotel will soon open in Las Vegas, according to an agreement announced between Nobu Hospitality and Caesars Palace.
The 180-room hotel will be housed in what is currently the Centurion Tower. The plan also calls for the Vegas Strip’s first Nobu Restaurant and Lounge.
The hotel will have 16 suites and a penthouse with a stylish interior and Japanese-style design that makes use of natural materials. Nobu Hotel guests will have their own private check-in and room service from the Nobu Restaurant’s culinary team.
The 9,500 sq ft restaurant and lounge will be at located at the base of the Nobu Tower, near the existing Appian Way at Caesars Palace. The Centurion Tower will probably shut down this summer for renovations, and the work is expected to take around 15 months.
Caesars Palace already has 3,300 hotel guest rooms and suites, and 23 restaurants and cafes. But Gary Selesner, president of Caesars Palace, said that “The re-branded hotel tower, restaurant and lounge will offer an experience unlike anything in Las Vegas, pairing exclusive accommodations with a resort famed for world-class entertainment, shopping and leisure experiences.”
Nobu is a partnership between Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, actor Robert De Niro and producer Meir Teper that came to America in 1994 with the opening of Nobu New York in TriBeCa. Robert De Niro also owns the stylish 88-room Greenwich Hotel in TriBeCa.
It’s early days yet and Nobu Hospitality hasn’t said anything about it, but if the Nobu Hotel in Vegas is a hit, then it won’t be long before a Nobu Hotel pops up in New York too.
