Paris is modeled after the world-famous Hotel de Ville in Paris, France, and is one of the few Las Vegas casino properties that still embraces its theme.
The Las Vegas version of the hotel boasts 2,916 guestrooms, a rooftop pool deck, and a casino complete with a painted ceiling that is intended to resemble the sky over Paris.
Stealing the show though are Paris’ replica Arc du Triomphe and 50 story replica Eiffel Tower.
Built into the replica Eiffel Tower is Paris’ Eiffel Tower Restaurant, which provides views of the Strip at an elevation of 100 feet. Additionally, guests can travel to the 46th-floor viewing deck which offers a unique aerial perspective of Las Vegas and especially the neighboring Fountains of Bellagio.
I recently ventured to the top, and the view is unreal, even if you’ve been to Vegas numerous times before.

Recently, Caesars Entertainment undertook a $1.7 million renovation project which added 300 color washing lights and 800 strobe lights to the exterior of the 1/2 scale model Eiffel Tower to create a free light show right on the Las Vegas Strip.
The new show was unveiled in February of 2018 and depicts the colors of the French flag – Blue, Red, and White.
The show is intended to resemble the light show put on by the real Eiffel Tower in Paris, and was created with help from Vision Sign Inc.

Tips for viewing Paris’ Eiffel Tower Light Show
- Grab a drink at Beer Park after dark, which is located on the rooftop of Paris overlooking the Strip and the Fountains of Bellagio. The rooftop perch also offers great views of Paris’ light show. People watching, water shows, light shows, and beer bundled together- Not a bad way to spend an evening.
- The best spot to get a full tower view of the light show at Paris is from the sidewalk in front of the Bellagio Fountains across the street. As an added bonus, that is also the best view for the Fountains of Bellagio which feature choreographed dancing fountains. Can’t beat a 2-1 free show deal.
- As with any other free show in Las Vegas, it tends to be better with a cocktail in hand. Luckily, Las Vegas has loose open container laws and a CVS that sells cold beverages on nearly every corner. Grab a cold beer or canned drink at the CVS located right next to Paris, post up, and enjoy the show.

I’m a former software salesman turned Vegas aficionado. While the craps table is my preferred habitat, I pull myself away to explore new attractions, shows, restaurants, and outdoor activities around Las Vegas with the intent of sharing my experiences.
Ultimately, I just want to help folks plan a better trip and save a few bucks in the process.
