Reed Travel Features

ATLANTA -- As part of an effort to expand its AmeriSuites hotel product in the western U.S., Prime Hospitality Corp. this year will augment its Las Vegas lineup with a 204-suite property.

AmeriSuites Las Vegas will be Prime's third hotel in the gaming mecca; the firm owns and operates the nearby St. Tropez All-Suite Hotel and the Crowne Plaza Las Vegas.

AmeriSuites Las Vegas is scheduled to open in December.

The courtyard-style AmeriSuites Las Vegas, which will be located at the intersection of Paradise Road and Harmon Avenue, will be the largest AmeriSuites hotel constructed to date.

Carrying many of the same features of the AmeriSuites product, the property will be designed mainly to satisfy the needs of business travelers.

Suites will feature a separate sleeping area, a living room with a sleeper sofa, a TV and VCR, a work desk with a data port, two phones with voice-mail message service, an iron and ironing board and a kitchen and wet bar area with a refrigerator, a microwave, a coffeemaker and fresh coffee.

Taking Care of Business suites, which will feature additional in-room amenities for the corporate traveler, also will be offered.

The property will contain a business center with computers, a fax machine, a modem and a copier as well as 1,500 square feet of divisible meeting space.

Additional amenities will include complimentary continental breakfast buffet daily, USA Today newspapers and free local phone calls.

Other features at the hotel will include a guest laundry facility, a swimming pool and an exercise room.

In addition to the Las Vegas project, Prime also will develop an AmeriSuites property in Denver as part of its growth plan.

Prime plans to build and open as many as 100 AmeriSuites properties by 1998.

Prime's AmeriSuites lineup includes more than 30 properties throughout the U.S., and another 25 hotels are under construction.
