    I've been toying with the idea of doing another trip in August for the GGWU point's bonus.
    I had been trying to find tickets and up until today - they were too expensive. Finally
    able to get some reasonable flight prices August 11 - 15th. Put them on hold until I check
    work tomorrow and make sure nothing big is going on during that time.

    I got booked into Nobu for my first time ever. I have always stayed in the Augustus
    Tower, but it sounded like something different to try. They offered me full comp, some FB,
    and some nice bonus points for my stay there.

    I will be in one of the renovated Luxury King Rooms. Wondering if anyone has stayed there?

    I think it might be fun to try something new, but if anyone has any negatives - please let me know.
    Or positives either!

    Thanks!

    There is a shower only, so if you are a bath person, you'll be disappointed. The rooms are much smaller than the Augustus tower. The best part about staying at Nobu is the access to their room service.
    I think the Nobu tower is the best location for easy access to the casino and restaurants.

    Thank you Newmans - I am good with a shower only. I have a large
    shower at home and so I am used to doing that. The room I have
    is 400 sq ft - that is smaller than Augustus, but not tiny, so I should be ok.
    I am looking forward to trying their room service breakfast for sure.

    Thanks for the response!

    Nobu is where I like to stay when I go on my solo trips. It's so easy to get to either section of CP. I also like that there's always a person at the desk when you go into the lobby, and that you use your key to access the elevator. There aren't any buttons in the elevator. You put in what floor you want on the elevator request pad and then the pad tells you which number elevator to go to.

    Yes the rooms are smaller than Augustus but for one person they are fine. In the kings everything fits ok but I think the two bed versions of those rooms must be pretty cramped.

    I love the bathrooms. The showers are really nice and huge. There's two shower heads and a bench. The only part to watch is that the flooring in the bathroom is extremely slippery when wet. On one of my trips I inadvertently stepped off the bathmat while my foot was still wet and took a pretty nasty fall which I still feel was one of my luckiest Vegas moments that I didn't break anything or knock myself out on the edge of the shower pan. They also have really nice robes in the room (I actually bought one with comps I liked it so much), and the bath products are pretty decent and include body wash.

    The room service menu is great. I've never gotten breakfast but have had lunch or dinner a few times and been very pleased. The menu's on the website if you want to have a look if you haven't already because I know the breakfast items are different. The minibars also have different selections than the typical Caesars room.

    I really like staying there and I hope you will enjoy it. If you have any questions please ask and I might know.

    Oh - thanks for the response. I am looking forward to it. I think it will be nice
    to do something different for a change. I love the Augustus Tower - but I have
    stayed there every trip to Caesar's both before and after renovations. It is nice, but
    I like to do different places and even though this is still at Caesar's it will be a different
    experience.

    Thanks again for responding. And - I will watch the shower! So good you didn't really
    hurt yourself. I will be careful!

    Love the teeny tiny Nobu lobby. Location is good, decor is nice, it's quiet and comfortable, and they have a lovely array of nice-smelling toiletries. But the rooms are kind of dark (as in not much natural light). Stayed in a "premium" high-floor room and my view was just a slice of the Eiffel Tower. Too many pieces of other buildings in the way to see much of anything. Nobu restaurant was a big disappointment the one time I went (deeply flawed food, godawful service), but perhaps I'll give it another try someday. Hope you enjoy the stay -- let us know what you think!

    Forgot to mention if you're staying at the Nobu hotel you get priority seating at the Restaurant. Sometimes you have to remind the hostesses as they typically will not ask if your staying at the property.
