LAS VEGAS HOTELS: Paris review

With its replica of the Eiffel Tower, Paris is one of the Las Vegas hotels to bring genuine presence to the Strip.

That French theme does not stop on the doorstep either. It runs through the whole hotel, with even the casino floor’s ceilings painted to create a summer sky backdrop to the Parisian façade.

If you have seen pictures of Las Vegas, you have almost certainly seen the Paris hotel, but is it somewhere you should consider staying?

Assuming you have seen Paris Las Vegas in photographs even if you’ve not been especially looking for it, there is a very good reason for that: it’s location.

Paris is set in the centre strip and directly opposite Bellagio and its fountains, which is probably the most iconic Vegas sight there is.

Its immediate neighbour to the south is Planet Hollywood. Ballys (soon to be Horseshoe) is next door to the north.

Getting around

The location of Paris lends itself to easily getting around the Las Vegas Strip and that is one of the reasons the price point is relatively high.

Cosmopolitan and Bellagio are easily accessible by a pedestrian crossing, while there is a direct indoor connection to the neighbouring Ballys.

Paris/Ballys is also a stop on the Las Vegas Monorail that runs up the east side of the Strip from Sahara to MGM Grand, so nothing should be out of your reach.

For the most part, though, if you’re staying at Paris you won’t be needing much transport. The majority of the Strip is within comfortable walking distance.

Paris Rooms and Amenities

Paris Las Vegas Hotels room

The most basic room at Paris is a spacious 390 sq. ft. That isn’t the best around, but you’re unlikely to be cramped either.

Suites start at 700 sq. ft, and all rooms carry the Parisian décor. It’s perhaps not quite as far as boutique, but it’s certainly very chic.

Lighting isn’t a problem with large windows throughout, and some of the views are spectacular if you get a room that looks out on the Eiffel Tower and Bellagio fountains.

The amenities are pretty much standard fare for Las Vegas, with a pool, a salon, a spa and a fitness centre. There are certainly no glaring omissions here.

The gaming floor at Paris is a good size too, although it sometimes feels a little dark. You can read about that in more detail in our Paris casino guide.

Food and Drink

If there is one thing you can probably outright demand from a Parisian-themed hotel, then it is quality food. Paris delivers there.

Mon Ami Gabi is one of the most popular food spots in all of Las Vegas. The cuisine is French, as you would expect, and the breakfast is especially spectacular. The restaurant also has an outside terrace that is not only right on the Las Vegas Strip but directly opposite the Bellagio fountains too.

Gordon Ramsey is about as French as sumo wrestling, but he has a steak restaurant in Paris. Guy Savoy is very much French, and there is a Brioche ‘grab-n-go’ outlet in his name.

Paris Las Vegas Hotels food

Fans of Asian food can enjoy the Japanese cuisine of Nobu Matsuhisa. Meanwhile, a restaurant from Lisa Vanderpump, similar to the one at Caesars Palace, has just opened too.

For something really special, there is a restaurant housed within the Eiffel Tower replica that offers French fine dining and panoramic views of the Bellagio Fountains.

There is another restaurant with an outdoor terrace called HEXX. Beer Park, situated beneath the Eiffel Tower, is a perfect spot for people-watching with drinks and snacks.

Alexxa’s Bar, which is right next to HEXX, is a Strip-side bar with live music. The nightclubbing is provided by Chateau, which is an open-air club under the Eiffel Tower.

There are so many bars that they evidently eventually got sick of coming up with new names for them. The sports bar is called Le Bar du Sport and there is a Cabaret Bar named Le Cabaret Bar. Napoleon’s Lounge meanwhile, has live music and is much more chilled.

Shows and Attractions

The only permanent show in residence at Paris right now is the musical Bat out of Hell, which uses the music of Meatloaf to tell the tale of a Romeo and Juliet style story about star-crossed lovers from opposite sides of the tracks.

As with most of the themed Las Vegas hotels, meanwhile, the property itself is an attraction.

Obviously, for Paris that very much revolves around their Eiffel Tower, and they make the most of it by allowing visitors to take an elevator to the top for some truly incredible views. It’s not free of charge, but it’s worth doing at least once.

Paris Pool

The Paris pool is all about the view, really. It’s a pleasant enough pool and actually quite large. What makes it special, though, is the looming Eiffel Tower above you.

In fact, it’s genuinely quite impressive just how much they have managed to fit underneath that Eiffel Tower!

There are the usual cabanas and daybeds for hire too, as well as poolside drinks.

Paris is among the company of giants in the central area of the Strip and, although it can often be overlooked, it is an icon of Las Vegas in its own right.

The Eiffel Tower is a genuinely superb attraction that they utilise brilliantly.

Pros: The food options are great and its hard to think of a property on the Strip that makes more of its location than Paris does.

Cons: The casino can be a bit dark, and if you’re not a fan of the Parisian theming there will be nowhere for you to escape to.

Considerations: Paris does come with a comparatively expensive price point. I don’t necessarily begrudge them that as they offer an awful lot in return. That said, it’s not somewhere to stay if you’re on a budget.
