Paris Hilton, hotel heiress and star
of “The Simple Life,” joined with Aladdin Resort and Casino Chairman
Robert Earl and Michael V. Mecca, CEO of the Aladdin and Hilton’s business
partner, Fred Khalilian, to announce that the parties have reached
agreement to open Club Paris at the Aladdin Resort and Casino. The Las
Vegas resort, which was recently purchased by an investment group headed
up by Planet Hollywood founder and Chairman Robert Earl, is located in the
center of the Las Vegas Strip. This announcement is the first of many
changes to the property as the new owners continue their process of
revamping the entertainment options offered on property.“Las Vegas is hot, Planet Hollywood is hot and I wanted to be part of the
newest, hottest resort in Las Vegas,” said Hilton during the announcement.
“I will see everyone back here on New Year’s Eve when I officially open
Club Paris in Las Vegas and Orlando on the same night! That’s HOT”
Along with Club Paris, Miss Hilton is also in the process of designing her
own personal suite inside the resort. The suite will be Paris’ apartment
whenever she is in town and, when she is not in Las Vegas, the suite will
be available for hotel guests to reserve.
Plans call for the Aladdin Resort and Casino to be renamed Planet
Hollywood Resort and Casino in early 2006. The resort will remain open
during the remodeling and re-branding of the property and, once the
remodel is complete, there will be a Hollywood style grand opening
celebration for the newest resort in Las Vegas.
