The Paris hotel is more or less in the centre of the Las Vegas Strip in an ideal position right opposite the Bellagio Hotel with the magnificent fountains in front of it.From the outside the hotel takes on the appearance of a typical French building representing the opera house and the Louvre with a half sized replica of the Eiffel tower and the Arc de Triumph at the front. The rear legs of the Eiffel tower actually come down into the casino floor.Entering into the hotel it apprears that you are actually outside with the ceilings painted to look like the sky. You are immediately in the casino which you have to walk through to reach the check in desk. I have visited this casino on several occasions and have to laugh for example the toilets are set up and look typically French and the hand wash basins made me laugh because the taps were broken and the paper towel dispensers were not working and I thought how typically French! The façade of the building looks similar to a French chateaux. The hotel.The hotel opened its doors to the public in April 1999 with a massive firework display with fireworks shooting off from the platforms of the Eiffel tower. There are 2915 rooms in the hotel which are decorated and furnished in the French style. Of course rooms at the front of the hotel overlooking the strip come at a premium price.Eating.There are plenty of restaurants in the hotel ranging from the village buffet which bases its food on regional variations from France. It is a particularly good buffet offering all kinds of French style cuisine. There are other high end eataries and now there is a Gordon Ramsay restaurant in the hotel too. There is a massive picture of him on the front of the Arc de triumph at the front of the hotel. The piece da resistance is the Restaurant up the Eiffel tower where you can have a romantic meal overlooking the fountains of the Bellagio hotel opposite. That being said when I dined there it was incredibly noisy and the food was not particularly memorable however others begged to differ and thought the food quite nice.Entertainment.The permanent show on offer at the Paris includes the Jersey boys and there are various night clubs available for people to have fun chill out and relax. Piano bars and sport bars.Location.I think the Paris hotel is ideally situated right in the middle of the strip giving you easy access to the other casinos in and around the strip. It is not too expensive to stay here and it is a good idea to check the hotel web site for deals or through your local travel agent or on line through travel search engines. I do not think you would be disappointed with this hotel whether it is your first visit or a return visit to Las Vegas.
