Hotel Las Vegas review travel west coast

Paris Hotel Las Vegas

I recently stayed at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. This place was amazing. The room was a good size. The bathroom was nice and the view was unbelievable. Plus the location just can’t be beat.

Being right on the strip and in the middle of all the action, you can’t find a better hotel to stay at on your next Vegas vacation. While I had little to no luck at the slots. I was still able to leave with the shirt on my back. I enjoyed every second of my time dining, gambling, and drinking at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas.

Overview

The Paris Hotel in Las Vegas opened in September of 1999 and was renovated in 2010 and 2011. The hotel has a French theme with a half scale Eiffel Tower replica. The two back legs to the Eiffel Tower go through to the casino floor giving it a unique touch to the inside of the resort.

Out front of the hotel you will also find a two-thirds scale Arc de Triumph. Also you will find a half scale Eiffel Tower that is over 500 feet tall. It is one of the most impressive looking hotels on the Vegas Strip.

There are a total of 2,916 rooms in this 33 story tall casino. You can get everything from a standard room with or without an Eiffel Tower view. Up to the St. Tropez Suite which comes in at a whopping 1,470 to 1,560 square feet. Of course, that also comes with a hefty price tag. It was $1,060 on average per night in early March. One of these days I will stay in a suite in Vegas. Just wasn’t going to be this trip.

The Paris Hotel sits on the famous Vegas Strip. It is located across the street from the Bellagio and next door to Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino and the Flamingo. Bally’s Las Vegas is connected to Paris by a promenade. Both hotels are owned by Caesars Entertainment. They are also part of the Wyndham Hotels. 

If you are visiting during the warmer months be sure to check out the pool. Not only will you get to cool off but you will get a unique view of the Eiffel Tower replica. Its a view that just can’t be beat. If the games are kicking your butt. Come to the pool to relax and soak up some of that Vegas sun. 

If shopping is your thing, the Paris Hotel has you covered there too! It is an experience on its own. It will feel like you are walking down a street in Paris. You might even hear “Bonjour, j’espère que vous passez une merveilleuse journée.” Or Good Morning, hope you have a wonderful day. 

One last thing. Don’t skip out on a chance to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower. The viewing deck is over 460 feet from the ground and gives you a great view of Las Vegas. If staying at the Paris Hotel, make sure to show your room key for a great discount.

Casino

Paris Hotels casino is  95,263 square foot. They have over 1,700 Slot machines with games like Wheel of Fortune, Lucky 7s, Quick Hit,and many, many more . You will also find plenty of Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, and Baccarat tables in the casino. Both with live dealers and AI dealers. Don’t worry about the AI ones though. For roulette there is still a wheel and it is not computer generated.  

Now what kind of Vegas casino would you have without a race & sports book area? Well, I don’t know the answer to that question but at Paris, you don’t have to worry. They have you covered for all your sport betting needs. 

I do have to say that the casino did feel a little small to me. I seems like the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas has more space for shopping and food than for gaming. Not a bad thing but sometimes you want to try your luck and while there are plenty of tables and machines to play. It just felt a little lacking.

Room

View from the 19th floor

The Burgundy Room with an Eiffel Tower view is 390 Square feet. It came with two queen beds, a small fridge, desk, chair, and nice size bathroom. Did I mention the view? Oh boy, was it a nice view. Probably one of the best on the strip. Not only do you get a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower at the Paris Hotel. You can also see the fountains at the Bellagio. You’ll pay at least $100 more over at the Bellagio for that view. 

Now the two queen beds were comfortable. Not too hard and not too soft. I personally like a more firm bed but these queens worked just fine. Now the pillows are a different story. Not quite sure what it was about them but I couldn’t seem to find the right way to lay on them. Maybe it’s just me but I didn’t let it impact my stay. 

Now the bathroom was pretty amazing. I can’t remember the last time I stayed somewhere that had both a tub and shower stall. But let me tell you. That shower was a lifesaver after a long day walking the strip and sightseeing. The water pressure was just right. The temperature was just right. The whole shower was just right. Goldilocks would have been happy.

Now the room we stayed at was on the 19th floor so I was a little worried about the flushing power with the toilet. A couple of the hotels I’ve stayed at that were on higher floors, really lacked flushing power. However, at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, flushing power wasn’t an issue. This thing could suck a golf ball through a garden hose. That can be helpful after a long day eating some of the delicious food found around Vegas. 

Like I said earlier, the bathroom is a good size. There is plenty of room to change or do anything else that may come to mind. However, there is one little down side depending on how you look at it. There is only one sink but plenty of room on the countertop for all your needs. We didn’t really need two sinks but it might have been nice to have. 

Now I mentioned the fridge before. Well it is a tiny fridge but it can hold a few different drinks or a 12 pack of cans. There is also a small room safe and 40ish inch TV. The one thing the room is lacking is outlets. Well not so much lacking, more like the placement of them. They are just in some awkward places. One positive note however, is there are a few USB outlets on the lamps so if you forgot a wall changer you have no worries. 

Dining

My visit to the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas was in March of 2021 during the Covid pandemic. Many of the restaurants were closed or only open for limited hours. All buffets in Vegas were also closed including Le Village Buffet (the buffet at the Paris Hotel). Which really sucks because I love a good buffet and Vegas has some of the best in the World. 

The limited hours really sucked for me. Since I was only going to be in Vegas for a few days I didn’t really want to adjust my schedule to PST. I wanted to stay on EST which meant going to bed around 8pm Vegas time and waking up at 2am Vegas time (Yeah, I know kinda sucks but I was there with my daughter). Needless to say that didn’t quite happen but I was up well before 4 am Vegas time everyday. Vegas use to be 24 hours.

 By far my favorite place was JJ’s Boulangerie. Unfortunately, it was only open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. But the food there was delicious. We stopped here a couple of times when they were open. However, the coffee did suck. I don’t think I found one good cup of coffee on my whole trip. The best was from McDonald’s when we went out to visit Grand Canyon West.

Most of the prices for food were up there. A whole pizza pie would run you $40. I can get 3 back home for that much and still have money left over. Now the desserts were not priced too bad. Usually they would run you around $5. I miss the days when you could find good, cheap food around Las Vegas.

I remember back in 05 visiting my buddy and we would hang out near this one place that served $4 steak and eggs starting at 2am. Hell, now at 2am you are lucky to find a bar open (not quite but you get my point). Trying to find food this early in the morning wasn’t easy. On the weekend you had a better chance but come Sunday to Thursday good luck. Hopefully, once we get this pandemic under control we can start to go back to a new normal. Not only in Vegas but the rest of the United States. 

Final Thoughts

On my next Vegas trip I will definitely consider booking a stay at the Paris Hotel again. The location was amazing and the price was right. Plus we can’t forget about that incredible view. It was breathtaking.

Paris Hotel Las Vegas might be one of the more beautiful hotels on the Vegas Strip. Plus it was very family friendly. I can’t tell you the amount of families I saw during my stay in early March on 2021. If you are planing a trip to Las Vegas, do yourself a favor and check out the Paris Hotel. You will not be disappointed.
