Perhaps the Entertainment Capital of the World should be renamed the Hotel Capital of the World, as two Las Vegas luxury hotels have recently topped the list in two rankings.

Luxury Travel Advisor, a premier resource for luxury travel agents globally, has named Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace as the Top North America Hotel Opening in 2013 — great news for Nobu as the boutique hotel approaches its first anniversary.

“It has been our goal since Day One to provide our guests with an interpretation of the Nobu lifestyle in a hotel setting that exceeds expectations,” Gigi Vega, vice president and general manager of Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace, said in a news release. “We are thrilled to discover that the hard work on behalf of so many has resulted with this award, as it further validates the vision.”

In its inaugural year, the world’s first Nobu Hotel, Restaurant and Lounge also was named one of the Hottest New Hotels of 2013 by CNN Travel and one of the 25 Most Innovative Brands by Robb Report.

Nobu Caesars Palace is a collaboration among Caesars, chef Nobu Matsuhisa and Nobu Hospitality shareholders actor Robert De Niro and Hollywood film producer Meir Teper.

Just south of Nobu on the Strip, the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has been named the world’s most luxurious hotel — yes, No. 1 — by travel service Gogobot, which recognizes the top destinations based on recommendations and visits by Gogobot’s 3.7 million users.

Gogobot also named Palazzo at No. 10 among the Best Eco Hotels.

More than 15 million people use Gogobot annually to find hotels and discover new places to travel. A global leader in trip planning, Gogobot overtook Travelocity last June to become one of the largest providers of travel reviews online, according to eMarketer.
