Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace
Right off the casino floor in 4,000-plus-room Caesars Palace, star chef Nobu Matsuhisa opened his first hotel within what was the old Centurion Tower. His restaurant anchors the sanctuary, created by natural materials such as walls of mixed wood tiles. The 181 guest rooms combine grass cloth, natural Umi tiles, and an unconventional nod to the flowing ink brushwork of Hitsuzendo on the walls—though all those natural touches belie the high technology that runs it all. Special elevators deliver guests straight to their own floor without stopping, and you can order Nobu in-room dining 24/7, order housekeeping via an app on your smartphone, and even order up your own sushi chef in some suites. The new 10,300-square-foot Robert DeNiro suite has a 4,700-square-foot terrace and some of the best views on the Strip.
