Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, Nevada
Among the best-known casino destinations in the world as well as in Las Vegas is the Paris Las Vegas – a hotel and casino conceived as a sample-sized Parisian experience in the heart of Las Vegas, Nevada.
Herb Horowitz, the original architect of Paris Las Vegas, went to great lengths to create this illusion of “homme” away from home, with the property featuring a half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower, two-thirds replica of the Arc de Triomphe, a massive orbed neon sign in the shape of the Montgolfier balloon, and a replica of the La Fontaine des Mers. Added to this replica Parisian architecture are the venue’s 1200-seater Le Théâtre des Arts and an external facade paying homage to the Paris Opera House and the Louvre.
This 24-acre venue stands as an internationally recognized landmark on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. Initially constructed in 1999 and now owned and operated by the Caesars Entertainment Corp, Paris Las Vegas features nearly 3 000 hotel rooms and 85 000 square feet of gaming space, as well as various entertainment and dining venues.
