TPG fans following me on Instagram and Snapchat might have heard about my disappointing experience at the Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas a few weeks ago. As mentioned in the review, the hotel reached out after seeing my passive aggressive Instagram photo (below) and offered to bring me back to the hotel for a second round — but that’s not how things are done here at TPG. To keep my reviews honest, it’s TPG policy that we don’t accept hotel stays, flights or any other freebies which could tarnish our ability to write objectively.

Coming soon- my review of Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace- and it ain’t pretty :joy:

Instead of turning it down completely, we worked out a deal with Nobu and Caesars to offer an exclusive and valuable giveaway for readers. And for this stay, they assured me it would be a better experience for our winner.

This week’s Nobu giveaway will include:

  • 2 nights at the Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas (room, taxes, resort fees included) — $922
  • Dinner for 2 at Nobu — $300
  • 2 tickets to the Vegas Uncork’d Grand Tasting — $450
  • Meet & Greet / TBD experience with Chef Nobu
  • 2 tickets to see Lionel Richie at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood — $298

In total, the value of the package is worth $1,970 for this stay. The giveaway doesn’t include airfare, but this package is enough to get a real taste of the Las Vegas experience. Note that the dates on this package are April 29–May 1, 2016, with the tasting on the 29th and the Lionel Richie show on the 30th. The hotel will work to accommodate you if the dates don’t work for the winner, however the Chef Nobu Experience and tasting session are only available on this weekend.

The Nobu is a short walk from Planet Hollywood.
