The Stratosphere – In the fourth quarter, Stratosphere experienced a 4.2% decrease in Net revenues due to decreases in occupancy, average daily room rate, and an overall decrease in spend by guests throughout the property. The 4.2% decrease is Stratosphere’s best year-over-year comparison of 2010. A portion of the year-over-year decrease in Stratosphere’s Net revenues can be attributed to rooms that were out-of-order for renovation, a project that was completed in December 2010. Based on available rooms, Stratosphere’s fourth quarter occupancy was 89.4% compared to 86.8% in 2009.

Arizona Charlie’s – The Arizona Charlie’s properties experienced an overall decrease in Net revenues of 3.2% in the fourth quarter. The Las Vegas local market continues to be impacted by a difficult economy, high unemployment and heavy promotional activity by our competitors.
The Aquarius – Aquarius’ Net revenues increased 4.1% year-over-year for the three months ended December 31, 2010. The increase in Net revenues at Aquarius is driven by our targeted marketing programs that have resulted in increased revenues across all major categories.
