After missing a hopeful December opening date, the first-ever hotel from master sushi chef Nobu Matsuhisa is still set to open sometime in February. But exactly when in February? We headed over to the Nobu Hotels website to find out.
The site actually redirects you to the Caesars website where it's currently showing rooms open on February 4 for $269 a night. That's for a Nobu Deluxe King, the starting room category, and the pricing is pretty similar to what VegasChatter reported back in September. The hotel is completely sold-out for its opening weekend but after that rooms dip down to $249 a night. Most weekends through March are about $299 a night.
Planning on splitting the room with friends? A deluxe room with two queen beds goes for $289 while luxury king rooms are $299 a night weekdays.

The king of hyperbole is officially comin' to Vegas.
Donald Trump broke ground yesterday on a luxury hotel-condominium designed to be the tallest residential building on the Las Vegas Strip, and promised a second tower around the corner.
The Trump International Hotel & Tower Las Vegas is expected to cost $500 million and feature 1,282 luxury residential and hotel units, a spa and restaurants. It won't have a casino, but Trump said Tuesday that he plans eventually to build one...somewhere.
Trump is hoping that by copying his Trump International Hotel and Tower in New York, instead of his terminally bankrupt casinos in AC, he can strike gold in Vegas.
Speaking of gold lovers, Emperor Wynn was at the groundbreaking ceremony and didn't issue order 66. Instead he congratulated the Donald saying:
"I'm glad Donald's here...Donald jazzes up the neighborhood."
The Trump tower is expected to be completed in early 2008. No word on which, if any, Apprentice reject will run it.

Another giant hotel with 2,700 rooms is slated for construction out in Vegas. Shopping, spa, theater, so far it sounds run-of-the-mill for Vegas, right?
Well the big difference at the Cosmopolitan is that of the 2,700 rooms only 1,000 are traditional hotel rooms. The remaining 1,700 are $650 - $1.4 million dollar condominiums. Condo owners will have access to all the usual hotel stuff--pool, room service, concierge, maids, et cetera. And there is more--condo owners can put their units back in the hotel room rental pool and collect up to half the proceeds for each night's net rental.
Vegas brokers are already drooling for these listings, and ground doesn't even break until sometimes this summer.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, Steve Wynn said Tuesday that the public's reaction to his $2.7 billion Wynn Las Vegas has been better than at any property he's opened before. Er, is Steve Wynn really the best person to give us a hotel review on the Wynn?
I love seeing people in (the hotel). They love it, and they don't even know why."
On the LA Times calling Wynn's landscaping "slapdash":
"These are people that love to hate Las Vegas," he said. "We have a high-profile project, and everyone wants to say something. The L.A. Times always wants to say something bad about Las Vegas."
On 'Le Reve' the show that has received iffy reviews:
"Franco's not done with 'Le Reve' yet,"
On architectural criticism:
"This hotel is all about the experience of the guest, we decided we wanted a glass-curtain wall, and a glass-curtain-walled building tends to look (like others)."
He differentiated the clean look of the Wynn Las Vegas tower with the ornate look of some of the city's other top properties, which he called "themed fru-fru."
There you have it, Wynn on Wynn, three weeks after opening day.
Travelzoo points us to one of the best Vegas hotel deals we have seen in a while.
The Venetian is celebrating Las Vegas's 100th birthday by offering $100 rates on their huge suites.
The special is valid for select midweek (Sun.-Thurs.) summer dates, and even many of their weekend dates are priced at $199 throughout the summer. You must book by May 24 to take advantage of this deal.
Could this be the Venetian responding to the opening of the Wynn and other Vegas hotel competitors? Maybe we have a hotel room price war on our hands...let's hope so.
