Hotels debut free check-in at airport

LAS VEGAS -- A hotel check-in facility at McCarran Airport opened this month for properties operated by Park Place Entertainment Corp.

The free service allows travelers to register at the airport and receive keys for their rooms at Bally's, Paris-Las Vegas, Caesars Palace and the Flamingo Hotel.

An option for guests to check their bags for delivery to their rooms will be available soon, said a Park Place spokesman.

Guests also can purchase show tickets at the facility.

The check-in, designed to resemble a hotel reception desk, is located in the south baggage claim area, near the exit from the C and D gates.

Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to midnight daily.

"We are excited to offer this service to our guests and are confident they will enjoy the added convenience," said Tom Sears, vice president of Park Place Entertainment Corp.
