Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace set to open and start hiring

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV)  -- One of the oldest properties on the Las Vegas Strip is getting a major makeover and bringing dozens of new jobs to Caesars Palace.

Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace is set to open by the end of this year.

Oscar-winning actor Robert DeNiro, renowned Chef Nobu Matsuhira, Mier Teper and designer David Rockwell have teamed up on restaurants worldwide, including the one at the Hard Rock hotel and casino. But the hotel inside Caesars is their first and a partnership that's a win for them all.

Caesars Vice-President of Luxury Hotel Operations Gigi Vega says, "We were looking for a partner to fit the right spot for a tower that we hoped to renovate"

The Centurion Tower is nearly 45 years old and the second oldest tower on the property. By year's end, Vega says the 181 rooms will be filled with Chef Nobu and David Rockwell's signature touches. The rooms will feature high-end, contemporary, Asian-themed design with calligraphy-style stripes on the walls.

The rooms will also be filled with Japanese flowers, traditional green tea services and trays of sake.

Construction is underway now, just to the right of the iconic statue in the main lobby and a few feet past Cleopatra's barge in the heart of Caesars Palace. That area is being transformed into the lobby for the new boutique hotel and the new Nobu Restaurant.

Vega says it will be different from the standard Caesars Palace fare, but just as luxurious. 

"It's just the right marriage for us to have Nobu Hotel and Restaurant in Caesars Palace."

The hotel rooms will be covered by existing staff for the most part but Caesars plans to hire more than 100 new employees for the restaurant.

A job fair is planned for a time around Labor Day. Guests can begin making reservations for the hotel in October.
