Travel Weekly's Las Vegas E-letter: September 20, 2005

THE TRANSFORMATION of the Aladdin Resort & Casino into the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino is set to begin next month and will be done in phases so the property can remain open during the entire renovation, which is expected to be completed in fourth-quarter 2006. The Planet Hollywood Resort will feature new restaurants and nightclubs, renovated hotel suites and rooms, an expanded casino floor and a Planet Hollywood Westgate tower that will house 1,000 multi-room timeshare, condominium and hotel units. As part of a previously announced partnership with Clear Channel, the 7,000-seat Theatre for the Performing Arts will get a new look, and work has begun on a 1,500-seat showroom.

FUTURE VACATIONS is offering travel agents a $25 bonus on select bookings for the Aladdin Resort & Casino made by Oct. 31 for travel through Dec. 31. Eligible bookings must include air and a minimum three-night stay. To request a redemption form for the incentive, agents can call Future Vacations at (954) 522-1440, ext. 2976.

Classes are on a first-come, first-serve basis, and group or private lessons can be arranged on request.
