A suite at a Reno hotel-casino where President Bush spent Monday night is being renamed in his honor.
That's the word from officials at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino.
Bush slept in a 21-hundred-square-foot, 27th-floor suite at the resort the night before he spoke at the American Legion national convention in Reno.
Resort officials say Bush was the first standing president to spend the night in Reno and now they will be able to truly say they have a presidential suite.
The suite, which features four flat-screen televisions, his-and-her bathroom vanities, and a jacuzzi-style bathtub surrounded by Italian marble, rents for one-thousand-plus dollars a night.
Langlois would not say who paid for the suite during the president's visit.
He says Bush had planned to dine at the resort's Charlie Palmer Steakhouse on Monday evening after his arrival, but ate in his suite because the restaurant was crowded with Legion members.
