One of the most appealing aspects of Las Vegas is that visitors truly can visit the world in a day, and Paris Las Vegas is no exception to that international tour. Owned by Caesars Entertainment, Paris Las Vegas is in an ideal location in the center of Las Vegas Boulevard and is hard to miss with it’s half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower, a two-thirds replica of the Arc de Triomphe and a replica of the La Fontaine des Mers. The front of the hotel is reminiscent of the Louvre and the Paris Opera House.

Because of its outstanding offering of French cuisine, foodies are also likely to appreciate what Paris Las Vegas has to offer.

- Parking at Paris Las Vegas is a bit tricky. If you just want to visit, we recommend you park in the parking garage for the Miracle Mile at Planet Hollywood and walk next door. If you’re staying in Paris Las Vegas, splurge for valet.
- Be careful wearing high heels. The uneven flooring throughout the resort can easily twist an ankle.
- If you find other hotels in Las Vegas to be a bit overwhelming, consider spending some down time at this resort. It is small and easy to navigate compared to many others.
