We heard recently that there’s a Paris in France. We’ll forgive them for copying us. We know every other city wants to be Vegas. But since we’re the one and only Las Vegas, and since our Paris has incredible architectural features like the Arc de Triomphe, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées and La Fontaine des Mers at the Place de la Concorde, as well as the famed Eiffel Tower, we know exactly where you’ll want to spend your next Parisian getaway.Of all the magnificent aspects of this hotel, we know what you want to see first. Cross Le Pont Alexandre III, step into the beautiful glass elevator, and ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower, which boasts spectacular views of the Fountains of Bellagio, the Strip and the outlying city. Where else in the world can you scale such an artistic piece of engineering and look down upon an Elvis impersonator dancing on the sidewalk to a Zach Galifianakis look alike? And where else in the world would you want to so badly? That’s just a taste of the magic that awaits you at Paris Las Vegas.Once you’ve got your souvenir cocktail from the Arc Bar outside, move into the casino to see what they’ve done with the other three legs of the Eiffel Tower. Sure, one of them is bathrooms – or Les Toilettes if you’re fancy – but the others bring together an atmosphere of light and poise that few modern hotels can match. The openness, which is enhanced by the blue sky-simulated ceiling, lampposts, lifelike leafy trees, breathtaking fountains and cobblestone walkways, will make you instantly understand why France is so jealous of our Paris. They can keep their endless vineyards and signature toast. We’ve got Gustav’s Casino Bar and Mon Ami Gabi -- a chic bar and brasserie featuring sophisticated bistro fare such as warm brie cheese, escargots, onion soup au gratin, crêpes and quiches. This restaurant was also the first to initiate outdoor patio dining on the Strip and routinely ends up on our "Best of" lists. So now you can sound even smarter when you’re talking about it.Entertainment at Paris Las Vegas is also très enchanting. (That’s the French word for very, not the Spanish word for three. “Three enchanting” wouldn’t make any sense.) The resort draws together headliners, cultural programs and exceptional performers. Le Théâtre des Arts houses hypnotist Anthony Cools who currently hosts an adults-only show during which audience members are invited onstage and then do unexpected things at his command (usually of an embarrassing and inappropriate nature). They say you can only be hypnotized if deep down you really want to be. So apparently some Vegas guests really want to do some hilariously messed up stuff on stage.If you’d rather just blame your poor choices and out of control behavior on booze and loud music, Chateau Nightclub includes a stunning interior complete with a vaulted ceiling, ornate chandeliers, sleek furnishings and rich fabrics as well as The Terrace overlooking the action on the Strip. Together these hotspots create a night full of magic and wonder that will make you wonder the next day what magic happened in your head.For something more upscale and less throbbing, world-class musicians regularly take the stage at Napoleon's, a dimly lit lounge that also serves more than 100 labels of champagne. And Le Cabaret Lounge hosts traditional cabaret evenings along with bands singing your favorite standards and pop songs in English and sometimes French.The the quick-tempered star of "Hell's Kitchen" opened Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Las Vegas. But don’t worry, he rarely screams at paying customers – but maybe if you ask politely. Chef J. Joho presides over the elegant Eiffel Tower Restaurant, situated 11 stories above the Strip. Steve Martorano serves up homestyle Italian cuisine at Martorano's at Paris. Le Burger Brasserie puts a French twist on an American food classic. Hexx Kitchen & Bar has comfort food favorites along with a bean-to-bar chocolate factory. That’s a lot of incredible food. And it’s not even including Le Village Buffet yet. Clearly Paris Las Vegas is not a place where you’ll go hungry or go without an exceptional meal.Paris Las Vegas guests can also indulge in exotic pampering treatments such as Balinese massages and body polishes at the Paris Spa by Mandara. It includes a state-of-the-art fitness center as well as a relaxation lounge, sauna and steam room. The two-acre rooftop pool is another stunning facility with an outdoor café (du Parc) and luxurious private cabanas.Don’t get confused. There’s that knock-off in France with the sprawling streets and Beaux-Arts architecture, but this isn’t that. Accept no substitutes. When you’re looking for an elegant, enchanting and extravagant affair, Paris Las Vegas is the center of light and romance for you and anyone you happen to love.

strange room layout/high fees
PostedOctober 20, 2016
The fees- we arrived before check in time, around 12pm, and charged $20 to check into room early. I have never been at hotel that charged for an early check in. Otherwise, check in was not until 4pm. If the room is ready, what does it matter?
Food- Pastries at a French hotel should be top notch, while they looked great, they lacked flavor. Disappointing crepes as well. We found some great ones at Buddy V's in the Venetian for brunch.
Pool- I was charged 17.50 for a 12 oz pina colada! I later saw a sign stating credit card or room charges only. I paid cash and it was taken, I suspect the bartender pocketed my money. No prices posted at the bar.
Strange room layout- no coffee maker? Also I had a room with 2 double beds. You could not see the tv at all from one of them and barely from the second, it was obscured by the armoire placed oddly in the middle of the room. Very limited drawer storage. Lighting was also not well placed, I had to climb over one bed to get to a wall mounted light because the bed was up against the wall. There was no lighting between the beds, which would be the logical place. The green sculpted carpet went out of style in 1970. The bathroom lacked space to hang bath towels. I had stayed at Treasure Island 2 years ago, the rooms there were 10x better and cheaper. If you stay at Paris, you are paying for the location, that is it. Crazy resort fee as well.

Don't expect to see a lot of pirates at Treasure Island. Arrr...we know...the name of the hotel suggests exactly the opposite. But somehow, as the years have gone by, Treasure Island (often referred to as just "the TI") has shed its "Ahoy, matey!" attitude in favor of a more contemporary, adult-oriented outlook.Now that's not to say you won't see things at Treasure Island that bring to mind the world of buccaneers and buried gold. The architecture and exterior of this place -- which includes a beautiful manmade cove, a boardwalk built from wooden planks and a couple of ships that look like they've sailed the high seas -- definitely suggests you're in for a swashbuckling good time.However, even though the pirate theme has been toned down, there are many other good reasons why you should stay here. You don't need a treasure map to tell you that Treasure Island has got an amazing location. And you won't need a car or a taxi to get around...just a pair of sprightly feet. Situated near the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, Treasure Island is connected via a free tram to The Mirage, and it's within walking distance of a handful of must-visit resorts (Wynn Las Vegas, Encore, The Venetian, The Palazzo and Caesars Palace) and four must-shop attractions (the Fashion Show mall, the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo, The Forum Shops at Caesars and The LINQ Promenade).Treasure Island also boasts really nice rooms. (No hammocks here!) So you'll enjoy fairly luxurious accommodations -- contemporary décor with all the necessary modern amenities -- for a reasonable price (not the cheapest in town but not the most expensive either). And if you splurge on a suite...well, you'll feel like you've plundered the place.Warm weather days at Treasure Island are devoted to sun, swaying palm trees and island foods. Relax on the beach-like pool deck (complete with a 25-person hot tub).The hub of the activity at the resort occurs near the entrance from Las Vegas Boulevard, where you'll discover several rollicking bars and restaurants. Things get wild and crazy in Gilley's Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Q. You can drink beer, watch bikini bull riding contests, listen to live bands and line dance. The restaurant specializes in barbecuing (including three different kinds of mouth-watering ribs) and has windows that look out onto the Strip.Señor Frog's is infamous for its party scene in Mexico (and, of course, now at Treasure Island). Along with great south-of-the-border food, it has a spring break-style vibe. Antics such as shots being poured into your mouth, sitting on "butt" stools or dancing on tabletops are highly encouraged...and there are two outside areas in case you just want to chill out.For one heck of a good show, get tickets to "Mystère." It's the longest running permanent Cirque du Soleil production in Las Vegas. Packed with over-the-top props and daring feats of human strength and agility, "Mystère" will blow you away.Need a quick bite? Grab slices of pizza at Pizzeria Francesco's and delicious hot dogs at Little Richie's Chicago-Style Beef and Dogs. For heartier meals in a casual setting, The Coffee Shop and The Buffet at TI are two wonderful options for breakfast, lunch or dinner.In addition, you can sit down to a fine, slower-paced meal at Phil's Italian Steak House. Prime cuts of meat (think filet mignon, venison tenderloin, Colorado lamb and chateaubriand) as well as classic Italian specialties are created in its Tuscan wood-fired kitchen. And you'll always find a fresh catch prepared to perfection at the Seafood Shack.A sanctuary for the senses, Oleksandra Spa & Salon offers peace and profound relaxation. Perched on the third floor, you can partake of soothing and revitalizing treatments from around the world -- like Swedish, ayurvedic and Lomi Lomi massages.And if you decide you want to avoid the crowds in the major malls, you can shop up a storm right at Treasure Island. Get everything from jewelry at TI Bling Co. and Bijoux Terner to fragrances at Perfrume Eleven and souvenirs at the Lobby Store and TI Gift Shop. Plus, there's a three-story retail center at the northeast corner of the property anchored by CVS.So, without being too cliché, the pirate days of yore may have been tossed o'erboard at Treasure Island, but that doesn't matter...because you don't need cannons here to have a blast here.

Great location and pool
PostedMay 8, 2014
The hotel was very clean and it was easy to navigate. The location was perfect, we could easily walk to the Wynn, Venetian and the Mirage which were also nice hotels. Our favorite part was the pool area, nice laid back atmosphere with a live DJ that started around noon. Across the street there is a Walgreens where you can pick up anything you need at reasonable prices including groceries, camera cards, maps, souvenirs, etc. I gave the casino an average rating, I am not a gambler, but when I did play some video poker I constantly had people smoking next to me, very offensive to people who do not smoke! They should have a non-smoking section. The internet service could have been better, you had to reconnect every day and it always indicated there would be a charge even when this was included in the hotel resort fee and was never actually charged to our room. It is unsettling to worry about the possibility of charges/getting conflicting information. I felt the crowd was a little less rowdy at TI and in the surrounding areas compared to Freemont St or the lower end of the strip.

construction at Treasure Island

we are coming to Las Vegas in June. We are going to book our stay at Treasure Island. I wanted to know if construction would be finished by then. Also is pirate show cancelled for ever
A sign outside the pirate ships closed permanently during our trip last week. The ships are still there and light up at night, water is drained and no show. It does not indicate what will be replacing this area.
