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 the beloved Tony award-winning musical "Jersey Boys." And hypnotist Anthony Cools 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.

Fantastic Hotel!
PostedSeptember 3, 2012
Stayed here for 5 nights and found the hotel to be wonderful, concierge was very helpful with all my queries and gave spot on recommendations. The maids were friendly and did a wonderful job cleaning our room, they were also quiet and discreet. Food prices were average but the cafe and buffet was lovely. This hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to everything on the strip. Would stay here again :)

Prominently positioned just west of Las Vegas Boulevard, this multi-colored beacon of a hotel is a close neighbor to all of the action on the Strip making it easy for guests to venture around Sin City, but from the wide variety of shows, bars and restaurants located within the hotel, you could easily find yourself staying on the property.Seamlessly integrating its Brazilian inspiration into every element of the hotel, the lively aesthetic of the brightly colored carpeting, signage and décor of the Rio will make it seem as if you've arrived in the middle Carnival season. And adding to the energetic environment is when the crowds amass for the prestigious World Series of Poker held every summer. If you're not here during poker's premiere event you can still enjoy gambling as the Rio has a sprawling casino floor with 1,200 slot machines and 80 different table games.Drawing in crowds year-round are the hotel's buffets -- The Carnival World Buffet and the Village Seafood Buffet. Off the two, the Village Seafood Buffet earns the greatest amount of praise. Just imagine loading your plate with unlimited lobster, crab legs, shrimp, sushi and other swimming selections, eating it all… and then doing it again. Drooling? That can become a reality. Both of these buffets are usually packed with patrons, so be prepared to wait, especially during any holiday weekend.If you are not hungry enough to attempt fitting the contents of the ocean into your belly but hungry enough to think about it, then we are sure that you will find a non-buffet restaurant to suit your needs with the selection that the Rio has to offer. Among the restaurants are Martorano's by the tough, tattooed Philadelphia chef Steve Martorano is a sure bet where rich, Italian-American favorites are served in excess; the All-American Bar & Grille where they are known for their dry-aged Angus beef; Pho Da Nang with exceptionally authentic Vietnamese cuisine; Buzio's Seafood Restaurant known for their fresh oysters; and there is the one-of-a-kind dim sum menu at KJ Dim Sum & Seafood Chinese Restaurant. For quicker bites, Hash House A Go Go has creatively prepared, oversized portions -- which include everything from breakfast and brunch to dinner items or you can grab a meal at the BK Whopper Bar or the Sports Deli, which situated near the six giant screens in the busy race and sports book.If you are looking to transform your dining experience into your nightlife experience, we know you'll love the succulent steak and one of the most striking views of Las Vegas at VooDoo Steak and Rooftop Nightclub, situated on the 50th and 51st floors of the resort's Masquerade Tower. And while you're up there, go ahead and check out the thrilling VooDoo Zip Line – a zip line ride, where guests soar more than 800 feet from the VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub in the hotel's Masquerade Tower to the Ipanema Tower. The 70-second journey boasts stunning 360-degree views of the Las Vegas Strip and adds an element of daring excitement to any occasion.Whether or not you opt for a ride between the towers, you can either stay and party at the rooftop club until the Strip's neon tubes flicker off with the rise of the morning sun, or you could slip off and catch one of the hotel's in house shows. Penn & Teller, the quirky magic duo, have their own theater at the Rio, as do the hunky and ever-famed Chippendales dancers. The Crown Theater hosts an array of acts including comedian Eddie Griffin and there is the seductive topless revue "X Rocks," which showcases sexy dancers and steamy choreography to the soundtrack of heart-pounding rock songs. And when you get thirsty from all that you've done or from thinking about all that you're about to do, swing by the sexy Flirt Lounge in the lobby of the Chippendales Theatre or the high-tech I-Bar, where you can order drinks from a touch-screen computer built into your tabletop.Since this is Vegas, we know that there is a good chance that you will not be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed the morning (or afternoon) after a night out on the town. The best detox is to re-tox (well at least we think so). So grab a cold one and soak up the sun with an afternoon at the hotel's indulgent pool complex. With golden sand and cascading waterfalls, this complex inspired by the Brazilian paradise is a necessity. If sun and fun is not how you like to recover, opt instead for a day of pampering at the Rio Spa & Salon. Shops are found throughout the property including The Wine Cellar & Tasting Room, Fashion 101 and the Harley-Davidson store, shoppers can get their fix of retail therapy on the property, however, the resort provides shuttle service to and from Harrah's for those who want to venture out onto the Strip as well.

Good Price.
PostedSeptember 3, 2012
All in all a nice place to stay for a good price. I have a few minor grumbles as when we checked in they asked if I would like to upgrade for an additional cost which I paid but when we got to our room it was exactly the same as the photo of what I paid for originally so still unclear as to what we were upgraded too. The $100 deposit paid for at check-in took 8 days to be returned to my account. The room itself was spacious and comfortable and concierge was friendly and knowledgable.

Would one want to walk to the Strip?

You could but depending on the time of year (heat wise) it's quicker and easier to use their shuttles to Bally's and Harrah's.

Does the shuttle from the Rio to the strip (Harrah's area) run on a regular schedule? Is it complementary?

The shuttle runs every half hour and is complimentary. :)
