Nobu Hospitality's in the final stages of creating its first Nobu Hotel in one of Caesars Palace's older towers on the Vegas Strip. The renovation will cost $30 million, the article says.

De Niro is a shareholder in Nobu Hospitality, the restaurant and entertainment company of chef Nobu Matsuhisa, which is developing its first-ever Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace.
