Caesars Entertainment through its merger with Eldorado Resorts in 2020 agreed to invest $400 million into its Atlantic City casinos. The condition was a component of the New Jersey Casino Control Commission signing off on the companies merging.

Caesars operates its namesake casino, plus Harrah’s and Tropicana. The bulk of the spending was allocated to Caesars Atlantic City, which opened more than four decades ago in 1979, and which was in need of a major upgrade.

Part of Caesars Atlantic City’s $240 million overhaul included repurposing the top three floors of the resort’s Centurion Tower into Nobu-branded guest rooms. The Roman décor on those floors has been ditched in favor of a Japanese-inspired motif to fall in line with the Nobu hospitality brand.

Nobu is named after its namesake Japanese celebrity chef and restauranter, Nobu Matsuhisa, who cofounded Nobu Hospitality in 1994 with actor Robert De Niro and film producer Meir Teper. Billionaire James Packer, who founded Australian casino company Crown Resorts, acquired a 20% stake in Nobu Hospitality in 2015 for $100 million.

January Reservations

Caesars Entertainment reps told this week that its Nobu Hotel at Caesars Atlantic City is now taking reservations for overnight stays. Bookings are available beginning Jan. 2, 2024.

Along with the Nobu Hotel, Caesars Atlantic City offers a Nobu restaurant, which opened last October.

We are delighted to partner with a world-class hospitality brand like Nobu to further elevate the experience at Caesars Atlantic City,” said John Koster, Caesars Entertainment’s eastern regional president. “With its unique blend of luxury accommodations and culinary excellence, Nobu Hotel Atlantic City will position the market as a premier travel destination on the East Coast.”

Rooms are quite expensive for Nobu Hotel Atlantic City’s opening weekend. A standard king guest room for Friday to Sunday, January 5-7, costs $608 a night before resort fees and taxes. The total portfolio, inclusive of the $28 per night resort fee and hotel occupancy taxes, comes to $1,460.38, or $730.19 a night. A comparable king room on Caesars-branded floors runs just $204 a night before fees and taxes.

The same Nobu Hotel room for a weekend later in January drops to $553 a night. The three floors of Nobu Hotel rooms feature 85 guest rooms and suites, all of which have ocean views.

Caesars Upgrades

The Caesars Atlantic City overhaul has additionally resulted in a new arrival experience, Caesars officials said, highlighted by a fully renovated hotel lobby.

The Pool at Caesars, a rooftop pool complex above the Boardwalk with views of the Atlantic Ocean, has also been renovated, though that amenity won’t be open until summer 2024.

Caesars says its $240 million investment in Caesars Atlantic City and $160 million in upgrades to Harrah’s and Tropicana shows its “ongoing commitment” to the New Jersey casino town.
