A Stay At The Paris Las Vegas Hotel And Casino

With its Arc de Triomphe, Montgolfier balloon and of course, the iconic Eiffel Tower, the Paris Hotel and Casino is definitely one of the most recognisable hotels on the Las Vegas Strip. The Eiffel tower is actually half the size of the Parisian original, however, in typical Vegas-style, they wanted to build it the same height (1,063 ft) but the nearby McCarran airport wasn’t having any of it!

The Paris is located centre strip adjacent to Ballys and opposite the Bellagio which makes it perfect for first-time visitors. It is part of the Caesars group of hotels and casinos and is a moderately priced resort, (midweek we paid around £80 a night for a Burgundy Queen room (this price includes all taxes and the dreaded resort fees).

Eiffel Tower Las Vegas

We checked into the busy Paris Las Vegas at the beginning of March to get some warmth after a short stay in freezing New York City. As we checked in on a warm Monday evening, we had no idea what was coming and this was going to be our last trip to Las Vegas for some time.

Check-In
Arc de Triomphe

What we do like about the Paris is the theming, inside and out. A perfect example of this is the check-in area with its chandeliers and gilded mouldings. Unfortunately, the greeting at the front desk was a bit underwhelming and the receptionist wasn’t that welcoming, maybe she was taking the ‘Parisian attitude’ a little too far.

The Paris Las Vegas Foyer

The walk from the reception to the guest elevators isn’t too far unlike some of the other large hotels on the strip. Some of these distances can be long, very long. The journey with your bags and family can be an epic quest in themselves, you may lose a few of your party on the way but just keep pushing on.

The Room
Burgundy Room Paris

Our room was a Burgundy Queen room which is their standard room. It was spacious for the price and in a good condition, no scuffs on the walls or furniture and no suspicious stains on the carpet. There was plenty of storage, a good-sized TV and the overall cleanliness was very good. They no longer have coffee machines in the standard room but there is a fridge for your own drinks.

There wasn’t much of a view as our room faced the back of the strip but you are in Las Vegas so you shouldn’t really be spending that much time in your room.

Burgundy Room Bathroom

The bathroom had a shower and a separate bath, it was very clean and in a good condition. Toiletries were provided and branded with the Paris Hotel’s logo. Towels were good quality too and there was also a hairdryer.

The thing we find strange with US hotel rooms is whatever the price or style of the room, the electric fittings and switches are all the same. They look like something from the 1940s, off-white and even the new ones look a bit grubby. It’s as if they were all made by a remnant from the Cold War, the ‘Ministry of Electricity Fixtures’.

The Casino
The Casino Floor Paris Las Vegas

As with the rest of the hotel, the casino floor is well themed with its Parisian features, perpetual twilight and one of the legs of the Eiffel Tower protruding from the ceiling.

The Public Areas

The 1000,000 square foot casino has the full range of slots (1,700 machines) and table games, all the ones you would expect in a casino of this size.

The Pool
The Paris Pool

There is a decent-sized pool at the front of the hotel just under the Eiffel Tower. It had just opened for the season when we visited and there were plenty of lounge chairs and not too crowded.

We’re not sure how busy it gets in peak season, last year we stayed at the Flamingo and its pool area was a horrendous experience.

View From The Pool Paris Las Vegas

We don’t think the Paris pool is a venue for those overpriced pool parties and when we were there we found it calm and relatively quiet, no blasting of bland, second-rate dance music. Although, we don’t know what it’s like during peak season.

Restaurants And Bars
Mon Ami Gabi Menu

The Paris hotel has a wide selection of restaurants and cafes. The upscale restaurants include The Eiffle Tower Restaurant, Hexx, and Gordon Ramsey’s Steak. (There are a lot of Ramsey places on the strip, he seems to be far more popular in the US than in the UK).

There are a number of casual restaurants including Mon Ami Gabi, the Beer Park terrace, a buffet restaurant and some quick service options.

We chose to eat at Mon Ami Gabi, a French-style bistro with indoor and a popular outdoor seating area. The outdoor seats have a great view of the Bellagio fountain show just across the road. Our meal for two was excellent and came to only 80 dollars with our discount voucher, really good value for the location. Service was excellent too and we would highly recommend a visit if you are in Las Vegas, whether staying at the Paris or not.

Steak And Fries

The Beer Park a craft beer pub, we had a few afternoon drinks here and took in the views over the strip. The drinks weren’t cheap but it was a fun place.

Napoleons Piano Bar is also worth a visit. They do a duelling piano show and it’s great fun, just write a request on a card with a few dollars and they’ll play it for you, even ‘Summer Nights’ from Grease!

Would We Stay There Again?

We have now stayed in a range of hotels on the Las Vegas strip ranging from the cheap to the expensive and although the Paris may not compete with some of the high-end resorts we found it to be excellent value for the money. Fun theming, clean spacious rooms at a reasonable price.

So would we stay there again? Well that’s a definite yes.

Just to clarify, this was a personal trip and we paid for the entire trip ourselves.
