Location – If you missed Paris as you drove up the strip, it’s probably because you were gawking at the fountains on your left. The Paris Hotel is right across the street from the Bellagio, complete with an Eiffel Tower waving you over.

The Theme – Well duh… You may not get the chance to ever see the real deal, but this Vegas hotel does a great job of bringing the romance of Paris to you. From the oversized attractions to the meticulous décor, there is no mistaking where you’re supposed to be.

Rooms – You’ll be staying in the center of the strip, and have jaw-dropping views of the fountain, but the prices don’t feel like it. Unless there is something huge going on in town, you can stay in Paris for less than a $100 a night.

Restaurants – As you can imagine, there are a lot of Cafés and fancy words around the Paris assortment of restaurants, but the flavors are all unique:

  • Beer Park – An outdoor dining experience like no other in Vegas, Beer Park serves all-American cuisine along side generous samplings of ice cold beers.

  • Café Belle Madeleine – Conveniently located right next to the elevators, for when you want a quick sweet bite before heading out, or going up.

  • Eiffel Tower Restaurant – 100 feet up from the tower’s base gives you one of the best views of the strip as you dine.

  • Mon Ami Gabi – Authentic French cuisine and a wine list to match is just a small part of the allure of this popular restaurant.

  • Le Burger Brasserie – Located on the promenade between Paris and Bally’s, Le Burger Brasserie is a super sports bar and high-class burger joint.

  • Martorano’s at Paris – Paris’ nod to Italian cuisine has an obvious family recipe taste, making every morsel of pasta smack with flavor.

  • Gordon Ramsay Steak – At one time this was the foul-mouthed chef’s only Vegas location, and it still never falters from fine gourmet fare.

If too many choices is confusing your cravings, head to Le Village Buffet. The setting feels like a quaint French Village, while the offerings represent every region of the nation. Have a bite of a prime rib to start, and finish dinner off with a sampling of their acclaimed vanilla bean crème brulee.

Gambling – Even the spacious casino resembles a sparkling Parisian paradise, featuring over 100 table games and 2,000 slots. The sports book is a bit more manly, and provides you with over 225 screens to watch the big game.

Shows – The musical Jersey Boys plays at Paris, but as this is a city for lovers there is also 53X, that clearly crosses the risqué line. Scantily clad women and men flirt, dance and tease with the audience in this provocative burlesque.

Clubs and Bars – The elegant Chateau Nightclub & Rooftop takes over three stories, and has an abundance of patios and alcoves to get lost in. This is an over the top club experience, which will put you on top of the Vegas world.

The Day Club – Seductively sequestered at the base of the Eiffel Tower, Paris’ Soleil Pool is utopia. The tranquil setting is not set for a beach party, but it does give you a great respite from all that revelry.

Shopping – Two distinct shopping “districts” are found inside the hotel, each reminiscent of a small village in Paris. Jewelry, designer clothing and kitschy souvenirs are just a small sampling of the goods you’ll find as you shop.

Other Cool Stuff – The Eiffel Tower replica is more than just cool icing on the Paris cake. Ride the elevator to the top for some of the best views on the strip, or use the romantic setting to say your marriage vows. Whatever you do, don’t forget to take in these 360 views at night, when the lights and sounds of Sin City are at their finest.

Worth the Stay? – There is a strong romantic tone to Paris Las Vegas, making the hotel more appealing to those in coupledom. The setting is ideal for this, so if you are trying to make some kind of love statement, this is the place in Vegas to do it in.
