Paris Las Vegas is a four-pearl hotel and casino situated in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Its 2,916 spacious rooms have Baroque-inspired decor, plus air-conditioning, coffeemakers, and large flat-screen TVs. The huge property -- including the casino -- is meant to evoke an evening in Paris, complete with an Eiffel Tower that draws visitors from across Vegas. There are 14 restaurants that get mostly positive reviews, including French and Italian options. The huge pool has a laid-back vibe and entertainment includes fire and circus shows. Other amenities include a spa, gym, free Wi-Fi, and parking (for a fee). Travelers wanting an on-Strip stay with a clubbier vibe and fun extras like a Flowrider Wave-in-a-Box surfing pool, it’s worth checking out Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino instead.
A touch of Paris in brash Las Vegas, with a blend of romantic and over-the-top interiors
In a city of over-the-top themed hotels, Paris Las Vegas’s gorgeous Paris-themed interior is a spectacle in its own category. And that extends from the twilight blue, cloud-filled ceilings found throughout the hotel's interiors to the Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower replicas that stand outside. And while it all may prove a bit too much for some travelers, as there's a lot to like about the Paris Las Vegas. It's an exercise in excess, for sure, but since The Paris opened in 1999, the hotel has served as a Vegas landmark. Its gilded lobby has ornate mosaic tile floors, crystal chandeliers, and classic portraits on the walls. However, as a massive hotel, you should expect a constantly busy atmosphere that diminishes the European spell a bit. The electronic reception kiosks helps relieve the check-in and check-out processes a bit, but overall, waits can still be frustratingly long and we spotted people sprawled out waiting all over the place during our 2017 visit. Even so, the huge pool -- one of the main social spaces here -- has a serene vibe compared to other party-hard properties on The Strip. Hotel guests are from across the United States and around the world.
Across from Bellagio's fountains in the center of The Strip; 10-minute walk to The LINQ
Paris Las Vegas has a convenient Central Strip location across the street from the Bellagio’s famed fountains. Some of Paris' rooms have fountain views. Nearby casinos worth exploring include Caesar’s Palace, both around a seven-minute stroll away. The popular promenade at The LINQ -- which is lined with shops, restaurants, and a giant Ferris wheel -- is just 10 minutes away on foot. The iconic "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign, located just south of The Strip, takes 10 minutes to reach in a car. Downtown Las Vegas and the hopping Fremont Street Experience are a 15-minute drive from the Paris. There's a bus stop directly outside of the hotel for travelers who prefer mass transit. Also downtown are the Neon Museum and the Mob Museum. McCarren International Airport is a 10-minute drive from Paris depending on traffic
Modern rooms with Old-World accents plus features like flat-screen TVs, air-conditioning, and Wi-Fi
Paris’ air-conditioned rooms have mostly attractive interiors that blend modern style with Old-World accents like gilded mirrors and damask prints. Beds are a mix of one king or two queens with floral patterned bed runners and high-backed, plush headboards. Floors are carpeted in gray quatrefoil patterns and the bathrooms are tricked out in marble. All units have some seating, but upgraded Suites range from big studios to one-bedroom units with full living rooms, kitchenettes, dining tables, and retractable flat-screen TVs. Standard features in all rooms include flat-screen TVs with cable channels, mini-fridges, irons, ironing boards, luggage stands, and safes. Some rooms add iHome iPod docks (otherwise expect basic cube alarm clocks). Free local calls and Wi-Fi are included in the property's mandatory resort fee. Coffeemakers and free coffee are provided, but for a four-pearl property, we wish robes and slippers were included as well. Bathrooms are outfitted with marble vanities, separate showers and tubs, beauty mirrors, and hairdryers. They are looking a little dated, though suites add whirlpool tubs. Keep in mind that a bit of wear is starting to show in some rooms -- we spotted a bit during our 2017 visit and previous guests have noted the same.
Huge casino, gorgeous pool, multiple restaurants, a spa, gym, and lots of selfie-worthy French sights
Paris Las Vegas is a giant hotel with almost too many amenities to count, though its Paris-themed sights are perhaps its biggest draw, with visitors from across Vegas flocking here to snap pictures. That theme extends to the hotel's sprawling casino, which feels like Paris at twilight. Stars twinkle overhead, fluted lampposts shimmer, and a Moulin-Rouge gaming area. Keep in mind that smoking is allowed. If you'd prefer to spend money for a guaranteed return rather than gamble it away, opt for the hotel's shops and boutiques instead.
The Paris' 14 restaurants range from quick bites to fine dining and all venues get mostly positive reviews from previous guests. Gordon Ramsay Steak, which is open for dinner, serves up steak and seafood, while Cafe St. Louis serves French and international cuisine. Martorano has an Italian menu and Burger Brasserie Sports Grill offers a sports-bar vibe and scantily clad waitresses. What really stands out though is Le Village, the hotel's buffet. It’s set up like a French village at twilight and surrounded by charming buildings with shuttered windows, stucco and stone accents, and faux trees. The hotel also has multiple bars throughout the property, as well as a restaurant in the Eiffel Tower.
A large pool is surrounded by lots of lounge chairs and cabanas -- the latter must be rented. It’s worth noting that the pool doesn’t get much sunlight in the morning, but there are lifeguards on duty. There are also two hot tubs, and the vibe in the pool area is far calmer than at Vegas' many party hotels. The spa offers the standard services including massages, facials, hair and nail treatments, and salon services. A gym is located inside the spa and consequentially has limited hours. It’s stocked with treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes, weight machines, free weights, and dumbbells.
Paris has theaters and entertainment including a circus show, comedians, a dueling piano bar, and a fire-themed show. The concierge can assist in car rentals, show tickets, and restaurant reservations. Valet and self parking are available, but there’s unfortunately a fee for both. There are ATMs on-site as well as a Hertz car rental office. The property charges a hefty mandatory resort fee, which is common throughout Vegas and includes Wi-Fi access.
