    I stayed at both of these hotels last weekend, so I thought it would be fun to do a sort of comparison review. Apologies for no pics, I forgot.

    At Paris, I was in room 2107 (21st floor). This was a "view" room (given unasked for, and she warned me there may be nightclub noise on the weekend).

    It had a very nice view of the Bellagio fountains (partly obstructed by the Eiffel tower), and angled slightly toward a view of Caesars. The warned about nightclub noise was minimal (I could strain to notice it, but it did not keep me up and I am an epic insomniac.

    The room was a decent size. The main room fixtures and decoration were all pretty up-to-date and in good condition. Instead of a closet area on the way in, it has an armoire unit opposite the bed. This provides ample closet and shelving space, and included a mini-fridge (empty, not a mini bar), as well as a safe.

    The only oddity was that because of this armoire, the TV (flat screen, probably 42 or 46 inches) was not centered in the room, but hung beside this unit, over the desk. Still visible from anywhere on the bed, just a bit strange.

    The bathroom fixtures were showing their age a bit more. Everything was clean, just aging. There was a separate shower/tub, which is nice. But the tub was small and shallow enough that they probably should have copied Caesars forum tower and just done a giant shower. If you are at all large, that tub will not provide much of a soak.

    The room also had a coffee maker.

    Pros:
    • Good view and location
    • Separate shower/tub
    • Coffee maker
    • Fridge
    • Safe
    • Comfortable bed
    Cons:
    • Bathroom showing wear
    • Impractical size bathtub
    • Odd TV placement

    At Luxor, they gave me room 3313 (3rd floor of the East Tower). The hallways leading off to the tower felt a bit odd and temporary, but it was not a long walk from the lobby at least.

    No view to speak of, but the room was nice and quiet. I would say the main room is a bit smaller than the Paris one, but the bathroom larger. Again, everything was clean and in good working order.

    Again there was an armoire instead of closet, although this held the TV above the drawers, so a more typical location. Worth noting for business travellers is that there was no desk in the room. Also no fridge and no coffee maker. There was a safe.

    The bathroom had a much larger tub than Paris, including whirlpool jets. The shower stall was probably a bit larger, too. But for some bizaare reason, the shower head is abnormally low. It was still functional for me at 6'1 (bow my head to wash my hair), but could get really awkward if you are taller.

    Pros:
    • Separate shower/tub
    • Whirlpool Tub
    • Safe
    • Comfortable bed
    Cons:
    • No coffee maker
    • No fridge
    • Low shower head
    • No desk


    Overall, I would say that the winner was Paris. But neither room was flawless, and both would get the job done. If I was going back to one or the other, I would probably only pay max $15-20 extra for the Paris room.

    So did you have a basic room at Paris or a red room? We are booked for a standard king room in a few weeks and I've read reviews both good and bad. Sounds like you had a good experience which I happy to read!:thumbsup:

    I had a similar experience at Paris, but it was clear that the bathroom in my room had been refreshed along with a fresher paint job for the entire room. The tub was useless. I though it was smart to replace the old tube tvs with a fridge but it would have been more useful to invest in a new armoire so that the TV faced the bed, especially as it didn't tilt enough towards the bed for my taste.

    It was a standard room.

    Though you compared the actual rooms, I would give Paris a serious positive due to location.

    Agreed. In fact I was planning to have that listed amongst the pros. Apparently I just forgot.

    Thanks for the comparison. Never stayed at Luxor. Stayed at Paris many times. From your review I'd likely give Luxor a try.

    later, GVJ
