During my stay in Las Vegas, I stayed at the Paris, which is an extremely central-located hotel right across the road from the Bellagio. The Paris is mostly what you expect it to be – classy, a little bit cheesy, and classically-themed. From the outside, you first notice the looming mock Eiffel Tower that glows so beautifully at night. Upon entering the casino, you are hit with some hard cheese. The inside is modeled to look as if the Eiffel Tower was built right into the casino, complete with a sky mural painted on the ceiling. From the day we got there to the day we left, the casino and adjacent restaurants were bustling with people.
I have to say, one thing I did notice upon going into other casinos on the trip is that the Paris was the only casino that didn’t smell like smoke when you walked in. Every other casino, the smoke hit you like a brick as soon as you stepped foot in the door – I was very thankful that that was not the case for us.
The lobby of the hotel is classic with beautiful crystal chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. It truly feels as though you are part of an elite-class when you are waiting to be checked in, that’s how beautiful the lobby is.
Heading up to our room, we had to be sure that we took the right corridor as there are different elevators that only go to certain floors so be mindful if you stay here! We were on the 8th floor and because we were traveling with two other people, we had adjacent rooms which were extremely convenient. We stayed in the king-bed room complete with two wardrobes, a desk, desk chair, arm chair and love-seat – more than enough room for two people. The bathroom was the biggest bathroom I have seen in a standard hotel room. What I did notice though is that the room adjacent to us, which had two queen beds, definitely had a nicer bathroom. Where we had a shower/tub combo, the two-queen room had a separate shower stall from the bath. While this did make their bathroom a little bit smaller, I definitely prefer a shower stall to a shower/tub combo.
The pool was decent, nothing to rave about but definitely nothing to complain about either. Because the pool is set close to the towering hotel, the sun doesn’t peak over until about 10am which is fine by me – it was hot enough before the sun started roasting us like little potatoes. Be wary of what time you head to the pool – before 10am they let you bring in food and drink to the pool, but after that you must purchase everything from the pool bar. We decided to order two Miami Vice’s from the pool bar one day and let me tell you it is definitely a splurge – the drinks were $17 a piece!
Verdict: The Paris is a lovely hotel to stay at in terms of location and accommodation. The rooms were lovely as were the hospitality of every staff member we came across. Would definitely recommend if you are heading to Vegas!
