Nobu Hotel Las Vegas
The aim is to offer "the best of Eastern rigor with the best of Western comfort," Rockwell says while leading a tour of Nobu. "You can't really out-glitz Vegas."
Indeed, the rooms are very non-Vegas. The rooms have a Japanese sensibility, emanating Zen via beds dressed simply in white, 350-thread-count linens. Lighting is a contemporary take on Japanese lanterns. Tranquil spa-like bathrooms feature deep basin sinks, a teak bench in the shower (no tubs in standard rooms, only in some suites) and a wooden ladder holding towels.
