When I heard that the Nobu boys were doing a boutique hotel at Ceasar’s Palace, I feared for the neighborhood and all the Elvis impersonators suddenly not cool enough for the imagined hi-chic, Tribeca-inspired surroundings.
But fear not, my friends in white jeweled suits and big belts. David Rockwell’s small, 181-room Nobu Hotel is gaudy and gorgeous and you can’t help but feel the ghosts of 70’s cool in the chunky brown leather couches , room wall graphics and engineered metallic elevator surrounds.
For those who want to really keep what happens in Las Vegas in Las Vegas, the Hotel Nobu has a private lobby desk and concierge staff, with escorted in-room iPad registration, one of the best upgrades you can get in a town where check-in, even at top hotels, is like the line at the Motor Vehicle Bureau. 24 hour room service features a
menu designed by chef Nobu Matsuhisa, one of three Nobu Hospitality Partners who developed the property.
