After the Bellagio and The Venetian, we took advantage of our latest stay in Las Vegas to stay at another hotel on the Strip: Paris Las Vegas.
Gorgeous from the outside, Paris Las Vegas has plenty to entice tourists when it comes to booking.
We stayed in the Giverny suite for 7 nights. Read our review of the room, the hotel and some important information about the hotel.
Paris Las Vegas: Parisian life in the middle of Las Vegas
Opened in 1999 and owned by the Caesars Entertainment group, which also owns other well-known Las Vegas hotels (Caesars Palace, Flamingo Las Vegas, Rio, Horseshoe Las Vegas), Paris Las Vegas is one of the city’s leading hotels.
Its theme is the city of Paris. This is easily noticed, as a large Eiffel Tower is based in the hotel and rises into the sky much higher than the main building. In fact, whether you’re staying at Paris Las Vegas or not, take a trip up this Eiffel Tower. The view from the top is magnificent.
The decor is not limited to the Eiffel Tower. There’s a reproduction of the Arc de Triomphe on the side of the hotel, cobbled streets inside, signs in the style of Parisian street names, French restaurants…
As French people, we found a bit of our country in the hotel. But, of course, it’s a zest of France and our capital is very different from what you see in the casino.
However, the scenery is lovely and you feel right at home as you stroll along the paths of this hotel.
Paris Las Vegas is ideally located
The big advantage of the Paris Las Vegas is its location. It’s in the best possible location in Las Vegas, where you’ll find as many activities as possible.
When you leave the casino, you have
- Left: Planet Hollywood and MGM Grand
- Right: Horseshoe Las Vegas (formerly Bally’s) and Flamingo Las Vegas
- Opposite: Bellagio and Caesars Palace.
At a place like this, you don’t need the car or Uber. You walk to the finest Las Vegas hotels and restaurants.
When we come to Las Vegas, we always try to sleep at this spot on Las Vegas Boulevard.
Prices for staying at Paris Las Vegas
Paris Las Vegas isn’t the most expensive hotel in town, but like many establishments, prices have risen sharply. Between 2018 and 2022 (our last two trips to Las Vegas), we were surprised by the evolution of prices.
We stayed in a Suite, which is the most economical of the suites, for 7 nights in October.
The bill was €2,100 when we booked, and almost €400 more with the resort fees we had to pay when we arrived at the hotel.
The Giverny suite during a period of average affluence and without any major events in Las Vegas was over 350€ for a night. That’s expensive. Las Vegas is no longer the place where you pay little for an exceptional room and service.
La Suite Giverny: description and photos
The hotel has many rooms available:
- Burgundy Room
- Burgundy Executive Suite
- Burgundy Petite Suite Giverny
- Burgundy Premium Suite Charlemagne
We stayed in the Burgundy Petite Suite Giverny.
As an aside, I don’t understand the use of the word “Burgundy.” Burgundy is a translation of the Burgundy region, which is definitely not Paris. Yet the name is used in many places in the hotel, including the restaurant. For example, “Burgundy sauce” is used to translate “sauce à l’alsacienne” (Alsace being a region in eastern France, close to Germany). In short, even Paris Las Vegas is messing with the French language!
Having finished my cri de coeur, I return to the Giverny suite. This is a rather large suite, measuring 80 square meters.
It comprises a large entrance hall, then a central room with a “night” side and a “living” side. Then there are two bathrooms, one with a bathtub and the other with a large shower.
The advantages of the Paris Las Vegas Giverny Suite are :
- Room size
- Very comfortable bedding
- The excellent bathtub
- The corner with the sofa is a great place to sleep or sit and chat.
The disadvantages of the Paris Las Vegas Giverny Suite are :
- 2 medium-sized bathrooms rather than one very large one
- The huge entrance that wastes square meters of living space
- The presence of a single TV (one next to the bath wouldn’t be a bad idea).
The decoration of the room is rather pretty. However, you don’t have much furniture, and I much preferred the suite we stayed in at The Venetian (you can read my article on this room).

The hotel-casino: activities and pleasures
In Las Vegas, a hotel isn’t just judged by the quality of the room. When you leave the suite, you walk through magnificent corridors and down to the lobby.
After the elevators, you’ll find the casino area on the left, with doors opening onto the Strip. The casino is beautiful and rather quiet, and if the number of gaming tables isn’t impressive, playing here makes for a good time.
On the right, you’ll find the path leading to the Paris Las Vegas shopping arcade. Here you’ll find boutiques and restaurants. This is where we ate at Bobby’s Burger by Bobby Flay. But you’ll also find top-quality restaurants like Vanderpump à Paris, Nobu, Mon Ami Gabi and Gordon Ramsay Steak.
The hotel also has a boulangerie, Café Belle Madeleine, but the quality of the viennoiseries is no better than a standard boulangerie in France, while the price of a single croissant is $5. The rest of the menu is a far cry from French boulangerie…
In addition to a visit to the Eiffel Tower, other activities available at Paris Las Vegas include :
- Party at Chateau Nightclub & Rooftop
- Cigar smoking and cocktails at Napoleon’s Lounge
- Enjoy the pool at the foot of the Eiffel Tower
- Pamper yourself at the SPA Center
- Attend a show at the Horseshoe Las Vegas that can be reached without going out into the street (we did to see Extravaganza).
What’s more, as previously written, since you’re in the best location on Las Vegas Boulevard, a myriad of activities awaits you close to the hotel.
Paris Las Vegas review: good, but not perfect!
You guessed it. My opinion of our nights at the Paris Las Vegas hotel remains mixed. The room didn’t live up to my expectations.
The hotel is sublime, both inside and out. It’s this type of establishment that I love about Las Vegas. Going from the Italian Bellagio to the Paris takes you on a journey in an instant.
The room is large and the facilities are of a high standard, even if the Suite name might lead us to expect more, especially with a larger bathroom. Size isn’t everything, and you’re lacking in comfort and furnishings.
In addition, we had a few other inconveniences, such as the soundproofing. From our bed, we could hear all the other guests passing in the corridor. More annoyingly, when we left at 11 a.m. and returned at 8 p.m., our room hadn’t always been cleaned. It’s a real shame when you’re paying such a high price!
These inconveniences don’t happen to us at Hilton hotels, which have lower rates.
In conclusion, if you get great rates in off-peak periods, or fancy a semblance of Parisian life, Paris Las Vegas is a good destination. Based on my experience, I’d advise you to opt for a standard room with a view of the Eiffel Tower, rather than the Giverny Suite, which is large but not luxurious.
But on our side, if we return to Las Vegas and the rates are close, I prefer the Bellagio or The Venetian to sleep a few nights. For a longer stay, I now prefer studios with kitchens.
