We waited in line to check in for over an hour, and then they couldn't find our paid for reservation. When they finally located it, we went to our rooms, ready to get cleaned up and head to the casino. But we had another wait -- a wait of three hours to get our luggage delivered to our room! We made countless phone calls to the Bell Captain to be told it was on its way. It was very frustrating that the employees never even seemed apologetic for our inconveniences. The employees are taught to greet you with these French phrases that we didn't understand and they really got on your nerves after a while.
Our rooms were nice and very clean, but the furniture seemed somewhat cheaply constructed. The bathroom is large and contains a lot of marble features. We left our rooms at 8am on a Saturday morning to do some walking and see a matinee show, and returned at 6pm that night, to find that we hadn't received maid service yet. Another two-hour wait and someone from housekeeping brought us some towels. We paid $139 a night for a view of a wall, which isn't bad for a weekend night, but Lou likes a bargain and this felt like anything but a good deal. We did complain about the lack of maid service and we were given a $10 complimentary certificate for the Village Buffet, but not really an apology -- unless they were speaking in French.
The Eiffel Tower experience is neat at the hotel -- if you get a free ticket. It isn't worth paying for. We found the casino to be one of the smallest on the strip, and did most of our gambling at nearby hotels. Everything in this hotel outside of the Eiffel Tower is on a small scale -- you feel cramped in the restaurant, hallways, casino, etc. The location of the Paris is great because it is right on the strip and close to so many major hotels. I can't tell you a lot about the restaurants here, we only ate a dinner buffet at the Paris, it was an average buffet and we paid about $20 for each of us, children were $8.
Las Vegas is a place we love to visit for a few days, with and without our children. This is the one hotel we will never return to, unfortunately.

Ok, well ONE bad thing did happen: When we arrived to check-in, the lines were very long because their computers were down. No one told us the computers were down, we just heard as word traveled through the line. But, after waiting an hour, we finally got all checked in.
Our room was gorgeous. From the custom designed furnishings and the rich French fabrics to the gorgeous view looking out over the skyline. Our favorite part of the room was the spacious marble bathrooms with the separate tub and shower and crome fixtures.
In the lobby, underneath the ceiling painted to look like a sky, were the legs of the "Eiffel Tower" protruding out of the ground. In the center of the lobby was a loud, crowded, "open air" bar surrounded by the slot machines & tables. On the outskirts are restaurants, shops and fake "apartments" overlooking it all. One particular shop that we were drawn into several times, was the art store. While specializing in prints of famous French artists, the store also sold actual paintings of a few artists. During our stay, the main wall was covered in the work of Tom Everhart, the only authorized artist to paint depictions of Charles Shulz' Peanuts characters. The prints were priced from $100 up to thousands (framing added another $100). One of my friends bought a print and the helpful saleswoman made the experience in the store one of my favorites in Vegas.
During our stay, we dined at two of the restaurants. We had lunch at JJ's Boulangerie, a sandwich shop/bakery. It was good, affordable, and quick. We also had dinner at Le Café Île St. Louis. The menu offered a wide array of French cuisine, including breakfast items all day. Between the three of us, we sampled the apple crepes, the french onion soup, the cheesecake, and the creme broulee. All were delicious!!

The pool is below the Eiffel Tower. The central location in th middle of everything on he strip makes this hotel easily accessible to all other Vegas activities. The casino seems smaller than hte other large hotels, but I feel that is a plus becasue it is easier to find your way around. It seems the Paris does not need to make you lost to stay inside this hotel--unlike the others--it is so classy you don't want to leave.
The small cobblestone boulevard of shops are very true to the Parisian theme, except for the occasional vegas souvenir shops. Located amoung these shops is a boulangerie (French bakery), the perfect place for coffee, a chocolate croissant, and relaxing along the faux outdoor streets.
The room rates are resonable, and this hotel, I feel, is the best place I've stayed in Vegas.
