Las Vegas was built on the backs of themed properties and Paris is one of the best. Featuring a 50 story Eiffel Tower replica alongside the 2/3 size Arc De Triomphe, the 2,916 room property feels like an escape from the bustling Las Vegas Strip to the city of Paris. The 85,000 square foot casino is adorned with French architecture and decor with a 40-foot tall ceiling painted to resemble the summer sky. Even if you aren’t staying there, Paris is one of those Vegas casinos you just have to see.
The best room rates are typically found when booking direct with the property. Even if you have never gambled or stayed, booking direct with Caesars will often be cheaper than 3rd party travel sites.
What is the pool like at Paris?
The Soleil pool at Paris was rated by this blog as one of the best in all of Las Vegas due to its position on the casino roof overlooking the Las Vegas strip. Sandwiched between the Eiffel Tower and the hotel, sunbathers have plenty to take in as they take a break and relax.

What are the things I NEED to do at Paris?

- Napoleon’s Lounge: Check out the elegant twist on dueling pianos at Napoleon’s Lounge. The bar itself is beautiful and as the drinks flow the chorus from the crowd gets louder and louder. Drinks are on the spendy side, but it’s worth a stop if dueling pianos are your thing.
Is Paris in a good location?
Paris is located smack dab in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip between Planet Hollywood to the South and Bally’s to the north. Guests at Paris have a stunning view of Bellagio and her fountains across Las Vegas Boulevard. Nearly every main attraction on the Strip is within walking distance or $10 or less Uber ride.
Paris is also connected via tunnel to the neighboring Bally’s property if you want to avoid the heat.
Unique Transportation Options at Flamingo:
- The Las Vegas Monorail offers a Bally’s/Paris stop, however the stop is actually in the back of the Bally’s property. Simply take the walkway near the hotel elevators at Paris to Bally’s and follow the signage to the Monorail stop. The Monorail runs from SLS Hotel and Casino on the North end of the Strip, South to MGM Grand.
- Uber and Lyft will drop you off where cabs traditionally drop you off, right under the Arc de Triomphe and near the Hotel front desk. Uber/Lyft pickups however, occur at the north entrance of the property (somewhat near Mon Ami Gabi).
Our take on the Paris Las Vegas property:
Paris is a mid tier Las Vegas hotel with both budget and upscale room options available. The property’s prime center Strip location gives guests easy access to everything the Las Vegas has to offer. The real allure of the Paris property however, is the theming that seems to be a dying breed in Vegas. From the exterior of the structure to the casino floor all the way up to the guestrooms, Paris has a true Parisian feel and is so much more than a simple gambling hall. In addition to fantastic aesthetics, Paris offers a multitude of viable dining options for all price ranges.
Even if you choose to stay elsewhere, ensure you carve out time to visit the Paris property.
