10 Reasons Why You Should Sleep With Nobu in Las Vegas

January 29, 2013 at 2:03 PM | by | Comments (0)

The very first Nobu Hotel is set to open in Las Vegas inside Caesars Palace on February 4th (at $269 a night) and if you're wondering why you would sleep over at a sushi restaurant, here's 10 Reasons that will convince you to book one of these 181 rooms faster than you can say yellowtail sashimi.

VIP LOBBY AND CHECK-IN

Nobu hotel guests will have a completely different check-in experience from other guests coming to Vegas. In fact, check-in begins before you even get to the hotel with a pre-arrival questionnaire sent by the hotel. Here you can make your amenity requests, set up a dinner reservation at Nobu and let them know your exact time of arrival. Dedicated Nobu Guest Services staff will be positioned at the front of Caesars to escort guests to the Nobu "lobby" which is just past the Nobu restaurant. The lobby is not much more than an elevator bank with a desk but the walls and ceiling feature visually stunning wooden blocks of fir, hemlock and oak in different arrangements. The artwork actually continues on inside the elevators as well. Go ahead, touch it.

COOL KEYCARD SENSORS

Guests will be checked in via iPads in their hotel room but after that, they simply place their room key under these high-tech sensors which will automatically know which floor to go to. That's kinda money after a long night of drinking and gambling.

HITSUZENDO BRUSHSTROKES ABOVE THE BED

Designer David Rockwell made this traditional form of Japanese ink painting the focal point of the guest rooms. Impress your friends when they come to visit your room by letting them know Hitsuzendo translates to "way of the brush" in Japanese.

CUSTOM ARTWORK

Instead of bland artwork hung desolately on the walls, Nobu hotel rooms will feature a mix of traditional prints and expressionist design, all handpicked by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa himself and all carefully placed on a dresser next to the bed.

TEAK BATHING STOOLS

Chef Nobu also hand-selected these stools, found in each shower at the hotel, and which are staples of traditional Japanese bathhouses. Perfect in case someone needs to, um, sit out their turn.

GIANT CONCRETE BOWLS AS SINKS

The bathroom sink is set on a wood plinth, designed to resemble a garden fountain. Not a shabby way to wash the Vegas off your face, eh?

NOBU ROOM SERVICE BENTO BOXES

As if getting Nobu room service wasn't enough of a treat, select items will come in Nobu Bento Boxes that promise to be a game-changer for the hotel industry. The cheapest one starts at $28 but the High Roller bento box goes for $288 and includes lobster wasabi, wagyu steak, premium rolls and nigiri.

NOBU MINI-BAR

Guests will be welcomed to their room with Chef Nobu's selection of Japanese rice crackers and green tea but should they want some more goodies to nosh on the minibar is also curated by Nobu and features chocolate-covered Pocky pretzels, Wild Poppy blood orange chili and grapefruit ginger juices, Dean and Deluca items, the Japanese energy drink, Pocari Sweat and a selection of green teas.

NATURA BISSE TOILETRIES

Chef Nobu hasn't created his own line of toiletries for the hotel (yet) but the luxe amenity line from Natura Bisse has created a special rosemary and white tea scent just for this hotel.

NOBU RESTAURANT AND LOUNGE

Need more design from Rockwell to gawk over? Head downstairs to Nobu Restaurant and Lounge, the largest Nobu in the world. VegasChatter had a sneak peek last week, check out those photos HERE.
