    I'll be honest - it's free and I've never been there. I have eaten at Eiffel Towel Restaurant (awesome $10k plus meal that was covered by wife's work for the 12 of us) and Anthony Cools (maybe the funniest ever hypnotist via 48 hr entertainment pass) and I am in there for my 40th bday for 2 nights. My previous gambling there has been mixed (at best) and I NEVER see anyone on the message boards talk about the gambling there. For me, it is a) decent pool, b) awesome location and c) FREE.

    What should I expect there?

    Just like with real estate: location, location, location...

    I don't gamble there much, but I have stayed there. It's handy, and there is an essentials shop right by the elevators, which is handier than you may realize at first glance.

    I used to stay at Paris quite a bit. Ask for a Red Room (they are less tired).
    I love Mon Ami for breakfast on the patio. Gordon Ramsay's Steak has an outstanding Rib Cap Steak.
    The craps crew on the graveyard shift (4am-noon) are some of my favorites.

    I usually stay at PH, but I dislike the pool there. I'll use the pool at either PH or Caesars instead.

    We are staying at the Paris this weekend. Newmans is right, get a Red room if you can. I feel the vibe there is a bit more laid back, quieter, older, and not clubby. I enjoy playing craps there and have pretty good luck in the champagne room at HL slots. We are not pool "partiers," and enjoy the setting there. Drink service is usually pretty good, and try the China Shores extra line game just south of Gustav's bar; I have hit big winners on there more than once.

    Paris is fine as far as a hotel / casino goes. I stayed there for May/Pac a year ago, and I ended up gambling next door at PHo most of the time. The casino wasnt a huge hit for me (older crowd, less partying on the floor) but the rooms are good and location is great. Id be happy for a free room.

    It's one of my favorite places to play PGP. Never any great hits, but something about it is comfortable with good drink service. MAG for breakfast is always a good choice and ate at Eiffel tower restaurant once which was very good.
    If we are able to fly out a night early in May, I am going to try a red room comp for a night before moving across the street to the Bellagio for the remainder of trip.

    Depends on your room! The standard ones are ok, red rooms better and they have some good suites.

    I love the vibe and atmosphere there though. That and planet Ho are my favourite places to drink and gamble.

    Rooms and casino at Paris are decent (try for a red room), food options and location are fantastic.

    Eiffel Tower Restaurant (French), Ramsay (steak), Martorano's (Italian) are all top notch. Mon Ami is excellent for brunch, or a reasonably priced dinner. Le Creperie is solid for breakfast or a snack. Le Brasserie does a quality burger. I've never had the buffet, but it's generally considered above average, though not elite.

    Overall a solid mid-level offering.

    Will be staying there again the week of the 8th and as we stay there three times a year I guess it fits us just fine.

    I usually do my best on craps there and the drink service is steady and friendly. We just like the laid back vibe and the pool has plenty of room and chairs. Friendly group of waitstaff at Gustav's bar while playing video poker and watching sporting events.

    Good choice of restaurants and bars as well.

    I got lost there for a second. Is the pool good or bad at Paris?

    We are planning our trip for July for UFC. We have stayed at either MGM, Mandalay Bay, or Delano most trips, but last summer we spent one night at PH to get on the CET radar. I didn't care for PH as it was too noisy/busy in the casino for me. Maybe I am getting old or I was just burned out as it was our last night there on a trip where I could not win a thing. Everyone knows the type of trip, where if you owned a graveyard nobody would die type of trip.

    Anyhow, we are bringing the kids, 14 and 15. My son and I will be going to the weigh ins on Friday and the fights on Saturday. Wife and daughter are looking into a grand canyon sight seeing trip for Saturday, and maybe massage on Friday. We dont normally spend much time at the pool, but may go for a bit during the day. Is Paris less of a party type place than PH?
