Entering the 541-foot replica of the Eiffel Tower gives one the sense of the grandeur and romance of Paris. The outside façade of the hotel resembles the Paris Opera House, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Louvre. Painstaking detail was put into the busts of renowned composers of the Paris Opera House. The Eiffel Tower replica stands 541-feet tall, and is situated on the Las Vegas Nevada Strip. One has the feeling that seductive Paris and the abandoned freedom of Las Vegas have collided!

The Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, owned and operated by Harrah’s, opened September 1, 1999 on twenty-four acres at a cost of $785 million. The unique architecture continues to astound all who enter through its doors. Wrought iron street lamps line 85,000 square feet of the casino with the legs of the Eiffel Tower descending from the ceiling to sit on the floor in the middle of slot machines and gaming tables. The ceiling is painted to give the illusion of blue sky and clouds.

More olden street lamps to provide the ambience of strolling Parisian streets light the cobblestone promenade leading from the casino to the hotel, shops, and restaurants. This pathway also leads to Bally’s Hotel and Casino next door and to the Las Vegas Monorail that travels the Strip and provides transportation to the downtown area.

The Paris Las Vegas Hotel, one of the many themed hotels to invade the Strip, has the atmosphere and ambience to transport you to Paris, France without leaving the country. The hotel is located in the middle of the Strip providing convenience to all the attractions that Las Vegas has to offer. The room accommodations also reflect the Parisian theme with its French provincial furnishings and décor. The marble bathrooms with separate tub and shower always delight the guests. Some rooms provide a view of the beautiful dancing Bellagio Fountains outside the Bellagio Hotel and Casino. The sprouting fountains give spectators a spectacular show many times daily. Choreographed to music, the show amazes and dazzles the audience.

Many restaurants are located in the hotel. The 5-star Eiffel Tower Restaurant sits at the very top. The French cuisine and ambience enthrall diners along with the panorama view of Las Vegas. Again, Paris, France and Las Vegas, Nevada collide to the pleasure of its patrons. The Napoleon Bar offers live music after dinner, and the theater headlines celebrities for concert performances.

The Deuce, a double-decker bus, provides transportation along the Strip and stops at each casino. This mode of transportation also takes its passengers to downtown Las Vegas.

Of the many restaurants located in the hotel, special mention has to be heralded about the Le Burger Brasserie. Their 8-ounce American Kobe Beef burger charbroiled to perfection topped with Maine lobster, caramelized onion, baked prosciutto, French cream brie, and balsamic vinegar served on an artisan baked bun sells for an unbelievable $777.00. The burger is served with a bottle of Rose Dom Perignon champagne. This appears to be the ultimate mixture of French and American dining.

The hotel also sports a luxurious spa treatment at the Mandara Spa, one of the largest spa treatment companies in the world providing a relaxing surrounding along with therapeutic and exotic body treatments.

A wedding chapel is also located in the hotel.

Paris in Las Vegas offers the best of both worlds all under one roof without requiring a passport. Paris, France meets Las Vegas, Nevada in style and opulence.
