Chef Nobu Matsuhisa brought actor Robert De Niro and film producer Meir Teper to Las Vegas last week to check on construction of their new boutique hotel inside Caesars.

De Niro and Teper are among shareholders in the Nobu Hotel, set to open this fall. The celebrity partners were in town to look at some of the model rooms with designers from the Rockwell Group and finalize some of the plans.

Caesars announced in March that it was partnering with Nobu Hospitality to turn the Centurian Tower into the Nobu Hotel, restaurant and lounge. The Nobu brand currently operates 24 restaurants around the world, including one at Hard Rock Hotel, but the venture with Caesars Palace will be its first hotel.

An 11,200-square-foot, 327-seat Nobu restaurant and lounge will be located at the center of the hotel, which will offer 180 rooms.
