Paris or Flamingo in Vegas
Is there any comparison? Or is Paris the obvious choice for Las Vegas hotel?

is there any specific reason why you are limiting your options to these two hotels?

As between these two options, I would choose Paris.

I love the location and thought these 2 were good choices.

I've stayed at both multiple times. You are right, both are good choices. But Paris is the obvious choice between the two.

That is unless you have kids with you and it is summer time, then go with the Flamingo for the swimming pool.

your chances are strong for getting a great deal anywhere on the strip, as long as your travel dates remain flexible.

it also saves a lot of money by avoiding any hotel owned by mogul steve wynn.

Yes if summer season, pick Flamingo. Also consider Bally's, which is connected to Paris by covered walkway/ shopping area. Also, I walked over to Bellagio in less than 10 minutes with an over the street walkway. Easy walway access to Flamingo and Ceasars also.

Bill's (used to be Barbary Coast) is cheaper than Flamingo and has amazing rooms. And they're next door to Flamingo and have an agreement to allow you to use the Flamingo pool. I loved it there. It's a small hotel, so it's very easy to just go to your room without walking through the maze for a while as you would do at all other hotels. And there is a liquor store around the corner.
