Vice-Free Hotel Opens

 Believe it or not, a hotel has opened in Las Vegas where smoking and gaming are prohibited. The new Platinum Hotel and Spa is also the second condo-hotel in Sin City.

“Being that we are non-gaming, non-smoking and full-service, there is truly nothing else like our hotel in the city,” said the vice president and general manager of the hotel, Peter Rockwood. The Platinum has 255 one- and two-bedroom units with fully stocked kitchens, private terraces, electric fireplaces, Bose radios and wall-mounted, 42-inch plasma HDTVs.

The Platinum Hotel and Spa is a member of Preferred Hotels and Resorts. Visit
