New tower opens at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) – The first timeshare owners have begun moving into a new tower attached to Planet Hollywood on the Las Vegas Strip.

Officials say 20 people checked into PH Towers by Westgate on Friday.

The tower has 1,200 units including vacation homes and regular hotel rooms.

Westgate Resorts Chief Operating Officer Mark Waltrip says 500 units will be open by Dec. 25, while the others will be open by Jan. 1.

Westgate owns the tower, while Planet Hollywood operates it. The Planet Hollywood casino-hotel is in talks with Harrah’s Entertainment Inc. for Harrah’s to take it over.

There is no deal yet, but Harrah’s has filed an application with Nevada gambling regulators for a license to run the property.
