Westlife hunk Nicky Byrne changed hotels twice in Las Vegas - because he has a phobia of lifts without windows.

The FLYING WITHOUT WINGS singer checked into the Four Seasons hotel in preparation for tonight's (15SEP04) WORLD MUSIC AWARDS, but when he discovered their room was on the 48th floor and the hotel's lifts had no windows, he hastily grabbed his suitcase and took a room on the tenth floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay hotel.

A close source says, "Nicky was mortified. He can manage if it's not too far but 48 floors is full on. However, he's determined to get over his fear by staying on the 48th floor of the Four Seasons before the trip is over."
