The recent opening of the Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace as the first-ever Nobu Hotel, along with the Las Vegas Strip’s first and world’s largest Nobu Restaurant and Lounge, has garnered praise and accolades for its originality, distinctive design and attention to service and detail. Recently CNN Travel named the Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace one of the Hottest New Hotels of 2013.

Ranging in size from 1,000 – 3,250 square feet, the suites are ideal for guests seeking a stylish and distinctive alternative to a traditional hotel suite and are designed to be the perfect spot to host an unforgettable special celebration or event.
