A retreat from the glitter and noise that signifies a trip to Vegas, the Nobu Hotel – inspired by the restaurant empire – has its ow, tranquil tower in the massive Caesars Palace complex. Designed by David Rockwell, the space is an ode to minimalist luxury and Asian influences—think wood, stone, rice paper elements, and accent walls pattered with cherry blossoms or waves. Showers even feature small teak stools for those so relaxed they don’t even want to stand up to wash. Another bonus: guests get priority reservations at the chic Nobu restaurant downstairs, which is the largest in the world.
In the Area
Nobu has a central spot on The Strip, and it’s an easy walk from here to the other casinos. Shops selling everything from luxury brands to oversized souvenir beer steins are within a few minutes of the hotel. For designer labels and an enormous Barney’s, head to the Shoppes at the Palazzo, the upscale collection at the Venetian. Fremont Street, home to older casinos with cheaper tables and a nightly light show displayed on the street’s curved roof, is a 15-minute cab ride away. For a break from gambling for a little culture, head to the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, which hosts a series of temporary exhibits coordinated with some of the best museums in the world.
How to Get There
Although my room was not ready until 4:30pm, I have received a complementary Sake Suite upgrade featuring "humble" 1,000sqft corner residence. The room was quiet, which can be a major challenge in cities like Vegas. I wish my stay would have been longer to enjoy things like the living/dinning room, soaking bath tub with free salts and heated (yes, that's right!) Japanese toilet seats in both bathrooms. Linen was exceptional, although I like Waldorf's Percale linen a bit more. Thank you very much for making my business trip an exceptional experience. Will be back soon!
We were welcomed by Zoey after a long day of travel. She was superb in making a positive impression for the hotel. She quickly helped us through all the particulars to make our stay enjoyable. We had a short, but wonderful time at Nobu.
I had some issues with my initial booking which originally meant my first night would be in a standard room and my remaining nights would be in a suite. After multiple attempts to resolve it with online customer service leading up to my trip, i was consistently informed that it was not possible to switch my first night to the same suite as my remaining night, i essentially gave up and expected to have to adjust my day’s business meetings schedule to shift rooms mid day.
During check-in I worked with Zoey. She was professional, courteous, and friendly. When she saw my reservation she instantly questioned why I had 2 separate bookings and why my first night was in a different room. I explained what had happened and that customer service continued to inform me a room change was not possible, Zoey immediately said to me that she would handle it. 5 minutes after some button mashing on the keyboard, she said she resolved the issue and that I would immediately stay in the same suite for my entire trip without the need to shift rooms. This was a complete reliefe as it also meant I could have all my meetings as planned rather than having to scramble.
If you’re staying at Nobu Hotel, I would totally suggest asking for and working with Zoey.
