Paris Hilton Joins Nicky in the Family Business

Jul 19, 2006 | 10:29am EDT

Paris Hilton is joining her sister Nicky and following in the footsteps of their great-grandfather, by launching her own hotel chain.

The heiress-turned pop star wants to kickstart the brand with a spectacular and elegant development in Las Vegas--before taking on the world.

She says, "It's going to be lots of fun. My hotels will be like (London hotel) the Sanderson--a bit more extravagant, but cool.

"The first one will be in Las Vegas. I love poker and blackjack. And I always win--I've played it since I was 12, when I won $15,000."

But Paris might get in trouble for stealing her younger sister's idea. Earlier this month Nicky revealed her plans for the Nicky O South Beach project in Miami, which she plans to begin work on in November. Her hotel will feature a $5,000-a-night penthouse suite designed by Roberto Cavalli.

The sisters can both claim hotels are in their blood--besides spending most of their time traveling the world and staying in the finest five-star luxury, their great-grandfather was Conrad Hilton, the founder of the Hilton hotel chain.

Nicky says, "I've been around hotels my whole life, and I know a good hotel when I see one."
