With almost 3,000 rooms, the Paris is a mega-hotel that’s busy at all hours of the day and night, whether it’s visitors betting the house at the casino, partying at the Chateau rooftop club, or splashing in the pool at the base of the half-scale Eiffel Tower replica. It’s practically its own city—and while it’s not quite Paris, it does comes close with restaurants like Mon Ami Gabi, which has a classic bistro menu and 80-strong list of French wines. There are plenty of all-American touches, too, like the Beer Park with picnic table seating, 100 brands of beer, dozens of TVs and a view of the Strip—perfect for spending a few hours outdoors and away from the artificial lights and “what-day-is-it?” atmosphere of the casinos. With bakeries selling baguettes and a Rue de la Paix-esque street of chic shops, Paris Las Vegas is a beautifully constructed fantasy in a city built on them.
In the Area
Paris has one of the best locations on the Strip, right across the road from the Bellagio and its famous fountain show. Strolling over to the Bellagio and through its botanical gardens is a nice refresher from the stores selling cheesy t-shirts and yard-high beer glasses along the Strip, as is the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, which hosts a series of temporary exhibits coordinated with some of the best museums in the world. Hopping in a cab and heading down to “Old Vegas,” centered around Fremont Street, is a fun way to spend an evening; it’s home to older casinos with cheaper tables, and a nightly light show displayed on the street’s curved roof, as well as possessing a slightly rundown, kitschy aesthetic that’s completely charming. Stop for a sour ale at Atomic Liquors, a free-standing bar that dates back to 1945 and was a favorite of the Rat Pack.
How to Get There
Be aware of construction taking place in the paris. They do start at 5am. Harrah's properties on the strip are pricing themselves out of business. Breakfast at the café. A waffle, bacon, orange juice, and coffee - $34 plus tip. Really? Want to take a break from gambling and have a drink? $14-18. Want to get up early and play cards? Not here 1-2 tables open. Stay downtown or of the strip and just go there to visit.
So many things were wrong with this room. First, when we checked in (late Wednesday night) the room we reserved was not available. We were offered a smoking room which was not an option for us, then they offered 2 queens on a lower floor. We were tired from flying all night so we just took it. We were informed at check in that the room would have no water from 10:30am until 3:30pm the next day. The room was uncomfortable. Not enough pillows and sheets were rough. The room was in need of renovation. The next morning my husband spoke to management and they moved us to a king (which we originally reserved) on a higher floor. This room looked slightly better but had limited hot water. We let the water run for 5 minutes and it still did not get warm. I called maintenance and they suggested letting it run at least 10 minutes and it sounded like this was a common problem for guests. Maintenance came to our room and left a note but the water situation did not improve. There are many things I can forgive in a hotel room but having no hot water is absolutely unacceptable.
This is our second time at the Paris, we stayed four days they gave us a suite, the room and amenities very nice and clean. Check in and out was very quick and easy. The casino is really nice and fun to play in also the bars and restaurants were awesome. All aspects of customer service was great. everything in the hotel casino and restaurants is extremely clean and very nice. We plan on staying there many times more in the future.
We usually have a nice room at Paris however this trip our room was rundown and dirty. the wallpaper was peeling and I would not sit on the couch it was so filthy. Below Paris standards and not at all what we are accustomed to at Paris. Will rethink returning.
Paris is lovely, but we did not have hot water in our room for three days, not even warm. They were doing maintenance, and shut off the water to our floor every day for a couple of hours. We addressed this with management, and they finally offered us a different room on another floor. However, they still charged resort fees.
