Caesars Palace Las Vegas Expanding
Caesars Palaces is already one of the top casinos in Las Vegas, but they’re still looking to get bigger and better by the summer of 2012. That’s because Nobu Hospitality will be adding the Nobu Hotel to Caesars next summer.
The first thing worth noting about the Nobu Hotel is that it will feature 180 rooms. In addition to this, Nobu will revolve around an elegant Japanese theme. And since Nobu Hospitality is in the food business first (they have 23 restaurants worldwide), a large restaurant will be featured at the base of the hotel.
Caesars Palace President Gary Selesner spoke about the massive hotel addition by saying, “Nobu’s distinctive brand will bring a new dimension to Caesars Palace and will be designed to attract first-time visitors. 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.”
He continued by adding, “We have structured this as a strategic alliance with Nobu and have talked about potentially doing this in other markets. But at this point we are very focused on putting this together here with the highest standards and launching it at some point next year.”
Nobu Hospitality CEO Trevor Horwell also commented on the hotel project by saying, “We will bring the DNA of the Nobu brand to life in this venture through the vision of (chef) Nobu Matsuhisa with his fellow long time partners and friends Robert De Niro and Meir Teper. With a renowned location in Caesars Palace, the luxury Nobu Hotel Las Vegas will be a destination for style-makers and trendsetters, offering an immersive, fun and social experience.”
As mentioned before, Nobu Hospitality already has 23 restaurants (24 once this project is completed). However, the Nobu Hotel is their first hotel project, so it will be interesting to see how things turn out in the end.
