Paris Las Vegas Review
This homage to the City of Light aims to conjure up all the charm of the French capital, and while it isn't quite as glamorous as the Strip's other Euro-metropolis-theme wonder (the Venetian), it's still good and elegant fun. Paris' standard units have marble baths with separate tubs and showers. Still, some find the heavy-handed decor a little busy. West-facing rooms overlook the magnificent fountains and lagoon across the street at Bellagio. A handful of rooms, dubbed "Red Rooms," have 42-inch plasma TVs and custom-designed furniture with French-inspired decorative elements and artwork. Suites add not only more space, but also considerably more dashing red, beige, and gold furniture and rich fabrics. Downstairs, the fabulous buffet serves dishes from five French regions. Other dining options–including the steakhouse from Gordon Ramsay–are mediocre, save perhaps for Mon Ami Gabi bistro. A massive octagonal pool sits in the shadows of the Eiffel Tower on the hotel rooftop. A swanky nightclub, Chateau Nightclub and Gardens, opened in early 2011.
The Faux France: Replicas of The Arc de Triomphe, the Paris Opera House, the Hôtel de Ville, and the Louvre, along with an Around the World in Eighty Days balloon marquee are magnifique!
The Eiffel Tower: The crowning achievement is the 50-story, half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower where guests are whisked 460 feet to the top for spectacular views of the Valley.
The Cool: At the Anthony Cools Experience, volunteers are hypnotized and encouraged to get in touch with their naughty side, to utterly hilarious and unpredictable effect; this is also the Vegas home of former "American Idol" winner, Taylor Hicks.
The Musical: Tap your feet to the music of Jersey Boys, the acclaimed Broadway hit about Frankie Valley and the Four Seasons. The show moved here from Palazzo in March 2012.
The resort's 2-acre, octagonal rooftop pool and exquisitely manicured French gardens are a great place to spend the afternoon.
Paris Spa by Mandara offers the latest in body treatments and fitness regimens.
Shopping at Paris Las Vegas is limited but noteworthy: the shops on Le Boulevard feature boutiques, gift shops, and a gourmet food shop, while the Bally's-Paris Promenade shops sell exclusive French jewelry and women's accessories.
Le Rendezvous Lounge, on the 31st floor, provides continental breakfast, afternoon hors d'ouevres and free drinks. It's well worth the surcharge at check-in.
