PARIS or CAESARS in Las Vegas

Hi, taking my sister to Las Vagas for her 40th B-day. It's between the Paris hotel or Caesars Palace. Would appreciate your views and opinions, thanks !!!

Topping for you.

I wish I could help but can only say that I have never stayed at Paris but HAVE stayed at caesar's twice.

Are either of these rated on TripAdvisor?

If your sister enjoys shopping she would probably like the "mall" at Caesar's and you would be a bit closer to the "mall" at the Venetian.

I do like the pool at Caesar's but do not know how well it compares to the one at Paris or if you will be there at a time of year it could be used.

I guess it depends on what is important but IMHO you can't go wrong at either.

Both are clean, well run and have a good variety of restaurants. Both are in a great location.

Caesars has a much better pool area. Paris is newer and on the same side of the strip as the monorail. Casears has the superior sports book.

It is extremely easy to visit one from the other. Some would tell you that Caesars rooms have an edge however I am not one of those.

Both have all the gambling you could want and both are owned/operated by Harrahs Entertainment.

So, in my mind it is very close to a toss up.

I completely agree w/ PlaceU2 poster above (toss-up). I'd go for which ever one gave you the best deal.

I'd have to pick Caesar's just because when a friend and I checked in there a couple years ago, we were given a free upgrade from two standard rooms to the huge two-bedroom suite that was used in the filming of the movie, Rainman. Rack rate was something like $5,000.

As has been mentioned Caesars has a better pool area too, including one for just adults. Don't know if Paris has something similar.

I stayed at both of those places last month. Caesars is certainly a step up from Paris. You can tell that by the table minimums.

I am being slightly fascetious when I say the following. Caesars is the place to go for rich guys aged 55 to 65. You can see those guys and the hookers who are after those guys in the main casino up front. Those well-dressed guys will be playing blackjack at $100, $200, and $500 (minimum) tables. You can find $25 tables there during the day. At night I think the minimum minimum on weekends is $50 and you will have a hard time finding a seat.

Paris, OTOH, is a bit more middle class (and I don't mean that in any sort of a negative way). Blackjack table minimums are more like $15 and $25.

I'm pointing out the table minimums because it is a good relative measure. There is literelly more money floating around Caesars.

Good point about Paris being much more convenient to the monorail.

While Caesar's is definitely more upscale, I wouldn't say that it is only for rich guys 55-65 - I stay there all the time and I am neither "rich" nor 55-65. You will see all ages there - and a good contingent of young people, especially on the weekends in the area of Pure (the nightclub). While table minimums for bj may be higher than Paris, I would be surprised if you can't find a $25 table, $15 during the early day. Plus, of course, they have all denominations of slot machines.

In any event, I have also stayed at Paris and I liked it as a midlevel property. If the rates are comparable, I would pick Caesars, but if you get a significantly better rate with Paris, you won't go wrong there either.

We spent several days in Las Vegas between X-mas and New Years each of these last two years. Last year we stayed at Caesars and this year at Paris. I strongly feel that Caesars was the better between the two. Not that Paris was bad, just Caesars was better.
