25. Nope, never got banished....


In fact, the hotel would " Comp" our rooms

Another part of the story is that my dad was a physician and African American.
AA's were not allowed to go to Hotels on the Strip, only down town.

One of my dad's friends knew the head Bellman and he got the management of the hotel to invite about ten physicians to come to the hotel with their families.

It was a day to remember!

We were dressed up ( hats, gloves, fancy clothes) and the families formed a long line. The bellman was so thrilled when he opened the door for us -- tears were running down his cheeks.

From that day forward, we were warmly welcomed and that is how African Americans got into Vegas Hotels.
