Paris Hotel in Las Vegas Review
Great views in the middle of the Strip
If you're visiting Las Vegas and you want to stay where all the action is, you can't do better than Paris Las Vegas. It's right in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, right across the street from the Bellagio and with a great view of the Bellagio fountains. Paris sets itself apart from the other hotels by having a half scale replica of the Eiffel Tower right out in front of their hotel. Some people are so distracted by the tower they don't even notice the Arc de Triomphe that's 2/3rds the size of the real thing.
Some of the hotels that are near Paris include the Bellagio, the new Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and Caesar's Palace.
Rooms, rates, and reviews
If you've seen the movie Knocked Up, you know what the inside of Paris looks like. It's very classy and upscale. The hotel is just over 10 years old, so it's one of the nicer properties on the Strip. Because of its central location on the Strip, it tends to cater to the under-35 crowd who are just in Las Vegas to have fun and are not there on business.
The basic room at Paris is the Luxury Guest Room and it includes either a king size bed or two queens. The bathroom is marble and there is a tub and standalone shower. Overall it's very nice and has a very European feel to it. Rates are often less than $100, depending on the night.
The Red Room Luxury room includes a 42 inch plasma TV and such amenities as a iHome unit for docking your iPod. These rooms start around $100 a night.
The Premier rooms have great views of either the Eiffel Tower or the pool. They start around $110.
The Le Mans Suite is a big upgrade and starts at under $250 for off-peak days. These suites include a wet bar and a refrigerator.
The Calias Suite is over $400 a night but includes a separate master bedroom and a whirlpool tub.
Overall, I have no problem giving Paris a 4 star rating. They have great rooms that are clean, and they have such an ideal location. For entertainment, they've got Barry Manilow, which I haven't seen but I hear he puts on a good show. For dining, I recommend eating at least once at the Eiffel Tower restaurant. The meal will set you back about $100, but you'll have the best view of the Bellagio fountains that you can get. Even people staying at the Bellagio don't have as good a view. Oh well, they'll always have Paris.
