“Intimate” and “megaresort” don’t usually go hand in hand. But Caesars Palace is changing that with its 181-room Nobu Hotel, conceived by chef Nobu Matsuhisa and actor Robert De Niro. The hotel-in-a-hotel, located just off the casino floor, is a pleasant respite from the Strip without losing access to all that great Strip stuff. But we prefer to get lost in the hotel’s VIP vibe and soak up the David Rockwell design. A good day could be staying in and ordering from the room-service menu that fuses Eastern and Western cuisines, then maybe wandering over to the spa. Other Nobu hotels are in the works in London, Riyadh and Bahrain. This is the new version of the Vegas “theme” hotel.
