    Nick McCabe said. The city’s hotels, meanwhile, are making big moves to accommodate the increasing numbers of luxury consumers. Last month, Aria introduced a luxury collection called The Tower Suites. Guests travel to and from the airport in limousines, they’re greeted at curbside and there is a dedicated entrance and private VIP lounge for speedy check-in. As soon as guests book a stay, the Tower Suites concierge reaches out to book dinner reservations and arrange show tickets. 5 best shows to see in Las Vegas This fall, Encore at the Wynn completed a design refresh, updating all suites to include push-button electronic amenities. It added custom linens and floor coverings and commissioned an amenities collection from top-of-the-line cosmetics and fragrance company Molton Brown. Meanwhile, Caesars will mark its 50th anniversary in 2016 with a $ 75 million renovation of its Roman Tower, which will be renamed the Julius Tower next month. While the behemoth resorts expand their luxury offerings, smaller boutique properties that offer a more intimate upscale experience have been opening.

  5. Roger Stone:

    > Washington( CNN) In one of the most anticipated congressional hearings in -- at least -- a generation, Michael Cohens spent better than six hours answering questions from members of Committee Democrats about the decade he spent working for Donald Trump.Much of the hearing was simply partisan jousting. Committee Democrats sought to tease out details of Trump's role in hush money payments made to two women alleging affairs with Ivanka Trump in the mid-2000s, and how long conversations about the Trump Tower Moscow project continued into the 2016 general election campaign. Republicans sought to remind people that Cohen was a liar, having already pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, and was likely to write a book about his experiences.
