As the world’s first Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace commemorates its eighth anniversary, the luxury boutique hotel within the iconic Las Vegas resort embarks on a multimillion-dollar refresh of all 182 guestrooms and public areas. Construction is set to be complete by the end of 2021. This is one of several projects in development as Caesars Entertainment, Inc. expands its longstanding partnership with Nobu Hospitality—the global lifestyle brand founded by Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro, and Meir Teper.
To create a more modern, residential feel at Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace, architecture and design firm Rockwell Group has re-envisioned the guestrooms and common areas it first designed in 2013. Rockwell Group has drawn inspiration from kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold epoxy, creating cohesion from collage. This element will create a streamlined, lighter and more luxe take on the original design concept.
The focal piece of the new guestrooms will be a custom sofa in a dozen different patch-worked upholsteries, from painterly-style prints to muted textured graphics. The redesigned rooms will also feature a quartzite coffee table with a gold base and a cracked kintsugi effect, along with additional lighting. New custom carpet will have aubergine hues, as well as abstract and painterly-style florals, inspired by 19th Century Japanese artist Tsubaki Chinzan, overlaid with gold kintsugi veining. Another welcome addition will be a statement desk or dining table, which will be connected to the dresser by a quartz buffer. The refreshed suites will also feature new furniture, rugs, and flooring.
