Summerlin resort offers a quiet millennium -- at a price

LAS VEGAS -- The recently opened Resort at Summerlin is offering millennium packages ranging from $10,000 to $100,000 that it says offer quieter times off the Strip.

"The resort will certainly provide guests with several opportunities to celebrate, but they can do so without having to brave masses of other revelers," said Brian McMullan, president and chief executive officer of the Resort at Summerlin.

Each package includes accommodations for five days and four nights at one of two Regent International Hotels at the resort: The Regent Grand Spa or The Regent Grand Palms. An a la carte rate of $1,750 per night is also available with a four-night-minimum stay.

McMullan said the most popular package could be a $20,000 "Turn of the Century Two," which includes golf, spa and a daily breakfast.

Guests will also be invited to several parties and events.

Some packages include tickets to the Elton John/Tina Turner concert.

The $100,000 package includes limousine and helicopter transportation, a set of personalized golf clubs and accommodations in a 2,315-square-foot suite.

The Resort at Summerlin is 25 minutes northwest of McCarran Airport and the Strip.

In other news, the resort opened its Paseo de Vida European-style marketplace. The Paseo de Vida forms the passage between the 255-room Regent Grand Palms and its 50,000-square-foot casino.

Shops at Paseo include Tolstoy's pen and gift store and J. C. Wooloughan, an Irish pub built in Dublin and shipped here for assembly.
