Travel Weekly's Las Vegas E-letter: Oct. 3, 2006

HENDERSON'S Green Valley Ranch Resort, Spa and Casino is celebrating its fifth birthday with the results of a $110 million expansion project -- the property's third such construction plan since it opened in 2001. The new spaces, which open Oct. 3, include a three-level, 1,200-space parking garage; a 170-seat race and sports book; a 22-table non-smoking poker room; 14,000 square feet of additional meeting and convention space; more gaming space; and two restaurants, Tides Oyster Bar and Turf Grill. To make way for additional casino space and a 500-seat entertainment venue, both set to open in the spring, the former poker room and race and sports book areas will close for remodeling.

OVER ON PARADISE ROAD in Las Vegas, Terrible's Hotel and Casino took the wraps off its own expansion, which features a 500-space parking garage and a new hotel tower that includes suites with Jacuzzis. The project also included improvements to the casino, with the installation of new slot and video poker machines. For more information or for reservations, call (702) 733-7000 or visit www.terribleherbst.com.
