Palms offers Hefner suite

LAS VEGAS -- For clients who want a truly different Las Vegas experience, the Palms Casino Resort features the newly dedicated Hugh Hefner Suite, which is located on the property's 50th floor.

Named for Playboy magazine's publisher, who used the suite during Playboy's 50th anniversary festivities in September, the rooms come complete with Playboy memorabilia, including a Playboy pinball machine, towels, blankets, pillows, glassware and artwork.

Prices for the suite, which can be booked through March, start at $2,000 per day midweek and $2,500 per day on weekends. Suite bookings are commissionable.

For more information, call (866) 725-6773 or visit; for groups of 10 rooms or more, call the sales department at (866) 725-6768.

Meanwhile, clients seeking a permanent souvenir of their visit to Las Vegas soon will be able to get one at the Hart & Huntington Tattoo Co.

The tattoo shop, scheduled to open at the Palms in February, will feature three tattoo stations, a private guest station, antique leathered walls, a custom sound system, an occasional disc jockey and a "Wall of Fame" featuring photos of celebrities receiving tattoos.

Planned hours of operation are noon to midnight Sundays through Wednesdays and noon to 3 a.m. Thursdays through Saturdays.
