A “New” Vegas Favorite? My Delightful Stay at this Seasoned Strip Property

Paris Las Vegas

Paris Las Vegas

I’m far from a Vegas expert, and I don’t particularly care to be one, anyway.  But these guys are.  So when I was planning a quick stop into town for my second U2 show at the Sphere, I reached out to Shawn.  With Caesars Rewards credits handy, I knew I wanted to focus on their properties.  Paris Las Vegas has never been high on my list, but I found it a good fit for this trip.  Indeed, Shawn confirmed it as a sensible choice.  I entered my stay with tempered expectations, and I wasn’t disappointed.  Here’s what I liked about my Paris Las Vegas visit.

Solid Value

I booked Paris Las Vegas directly with Caesars using fresh credits transferred from Wyndham Rewards at a 1:1 ratio.  The cash rate including daily resort fee was about $70, and I opted to pay ~14k Caesars Rewards credits for the two-night stay.  I found this useful as I’m not a Wyndham Business cardholder and do not have Caesars Diamond status, which waives Caesars resort fees.  I could’ve gone for cheaper rooms at lower-end Caesars properties, but I preferred the look and layout of the Paris Las Vegas rooms.

An Attractive Room

My one king Bordeaux room seemed to hold up nicely since the years-ago renovation.  I enjoyed the bright, airy room’s contrast of whites, grays, reds, and rich darks.  I saw no significant signs of age from the furniture or room decor.  The easy chair, ottoman, and bed were all fairly comfy.  The functional desk, chair, and bench were perfect for my needs, as well.  For a relatively small hotel room by Vegas standards, I enjoyed the variety of seating options.

The spacious bathroom has a relatively small vanity by Vegas standards, but it was plenty for my solo stay.  I appreciated the separate shower and bath tub.  The large wardrobe unit held the television, plenty of hanger space on each side, drawers, and even a fridge – an unexpected feature.

No Fuss

Nothing about Paris Las Vegas is singularly remarkable, but most everything was easy.  The latter is all I really hoped for during this quick trip.  I entered a fairly long check-in line at about 5 pm, but I only had a 15-minute wait.  All of my dining experiences – from a simple coffee to seated dining – didn’t involve any significant wait, either.  My mid-morning checkout process took five minutes.  In all facets, hotel staff is quietly competent.

Vegas Enough

I enjoy actually feeling like I’m in Vegas when I stay there.  What a deep thought!  But many newer properties – hello, Resorts World – are opting for a more antiseptic approach.  Been there, done that, won’t return.  Paris Las Vegas brings a bit of Vegas garish without overdoing it, in my view.  And it seems to be holding up nicely some 30 or so years later.

A Convenient Location

While at Paris Las Vegas, I never felt far away from anything.  And if I was, it’s because the other location was bad (Resorts World, for instance), or I didn’t want to go there, anyway (Resorts World again).  Nothing I was interested in doing seemed more than a few minutes’ walk away.  Perhaps my longest stroll was from the Sphere back to Paris after the U2 show.  But, hey, the Sphere feels far away from even the Venetian, the property it connects to.

Paris Las Vegas internally connects to the Horseshoe, and the Bellagio is across the street.  Caesars Palace is just north and the Venetian and Palazzo aren’t tremendously far beyond.

The Caesars Rewards Angle

I give brownie points to Paris Las Vegas and other Caesars properties since I’m able to cover dining and other room incidentals with Caesars Rewards credits.  Like some of you, perhaps, I get a feeling of “free” from this program that can’t be found many other places on the Strip.  I came home from my two-plus day trip after going out of pocket less than $10 total on meals.

Paris Las Vegas – Conclusion

During my periodic Vegas trips, I’m naturally interested in trying new properties, including older ones where I’ve never stayed.  But I could see myself returning to Paris Las Vegas for the right points price – and I’m confident I’ll find such rates.  A Strip hotel reliably delivering the basics with a bit of flair and at an outstanding rate is a winner in my book.  I imagine I’ll eventually be back at Paris for another ho-hum stay.  That’s not a bad thing.

  1. Nice place, it really kind of feels like France and the better restaurants are pretty exceptional. My wife and I used to stay there faithfully when they didn’t charge resort fees and we didn’t know about downtown. If you got a room for $70 a night all in you got a great value. It’s still a hike to get anywhere – 45 minutes to walk from the casino to the Bellagio casino across the street – but if you can work around the high food and drink prices and don’t want to go far it’s a lovely place to stay.

  2. @Afam-dfw, I checked out of Planet Hollywood 3 days ago at the Diamond registration desk. They were able to refund my credit card deposit so I could pay with points, or at least the final bill showed a refund to my credit card. I expect it to post in the next couple days.

    The points activity won’t be visible for several weeks since I checked out on 2/1 and February’s Caesars Rewards activity isn’t visible until the next monthly statement on about 3/7.

    Not related to Benjy’s post, but rather to your comment, Planet Hollywood isn’t the best for Caesars Rewards redemptions since many of the dining locations are not owned by Caesars and redeem at a 2:1 ratio.

    Maybe next time I’ll try Paris Las Vegas, it sounds like a solid redemption, and a nice mid-size hotel in a great location.

    • Thanks. I guess a just drew a bad desk agent that didn’t know how to refund the deposit. It was a 5am checkout.

      On the 2:1 restaurant redemption, I think you can find restaurants with a 1:1 redemption by going to the restaurant page on the hotel dining page and see if it shows redeem rewards. I think those restaurants redeem at 1:1.

      • Afam-dfw,
        For what it’s worth, I found it simplest to access eligible restaurants and their redemption ratios via the Caesars app.

  3. Stayed at Paris in the Versailles tower and discovered it was actually in the Horseshoe hotel and a long walk to the Paris restaurants. Also, at checkout, I learned that several restaurants like Mon Ami Gabi redeem points at a 2:1 ratio

    I was also told at checkout the they could not refund my credit card deposit so I could pay with points.

    The room was nice but the remodel seems to still be ongoing. My rooms shower did not have a shampoo dispenser or a shelf to place the supplied soaps.

    On the bright side, the Mon Ami breakfast was excellent.
