    All,

    Long-time reader, first time poster. I will make my triumphant return to Vegas in 8 days after 3 long years away. Can't wait! We got comped for 4 nights at the Paris. I'm reading some mixed reviews on travel sites about the rooms and what not. I love the breakfast buffet and the casino. I requested an upgrade but they said that determination isn't made until check-in because the hotel charges the marketing department for comped rooms. How easy is it to get an upgrade for a Tuesday-Saturday stay, how nice are the normal rooms just in case we don't get an upgrade? Thank you.

    I guess another question I have would be does the "20 dollar trick" work at Paris? How do I do it?

    Are you Diamond? That helps
    Paris is my home, though I am trying PH next door this trip, same host set me up, she's based at Paris

    Some rooms are renovated, some are not. Even the non-renovated rooms aren't all that bad, not like they're a shithole or something
    A Le Mans and a Calais suite is the same, except the Calais overlooks the Eiffel Tower, pool and B Fountains, Lemans looks to the back.

    Ask for a Red Room, and chances are it'll be newer.
    I'd take a non-renovated strip view, than a renovated or Red facing the back (east)

    We've been there many times and love the casino and restaurants and such. We stayed there on premises for the first time in January. We had five nights comped. We arrived late at night and there was a long line to check in, even though it was Sunday night. We had requested a non-smoking King. When we got to the front of the line, we were told there were no king beds left. But then the extremely nice lady checking us in (I think she was a supervisor, actually) said she could give us the *only* king bed left in the whole hotel if we didn't mind walking to the end of a corridor (I had also asked for close to the elevator). I asked her if it had a good view and she said "not really." I asked if it was a "nice" room and she said "yes." So we decided to take it.

    Good decision. It was a RED corner suite. And I don't know what she considers a good view because we had a view of the Bellaggio fountains out one window and right down the Strip out the other! It was, quite frankly, awesome. Especially when I got sick with a 24 hour flu and ended up holed up in the room for, well, 24 hours!

    I had considered offering the check-in clerk the $20 thing but I had happened to see someone in front of us try to tip her and she told him she wouldn't take it because she was "just doing her job." I did leave her very nice comments on a comment card when we checked out.

    So, my experience is that the rooms are great! I can only wish for you that you have the same good fortune that we did. :peace:

    Unforunately I'm not a diamond member. They asked me if I wanted a high floor with a view of the Bellagio fountains, obviously I said yes but then I started reading about the outdated rooms. I guess at the end of the day I would rather have a better view than a fancy updated room overlooking the parking garage. I don't plan on being in the room much anyway.

    i stayed in the standard room last year, and we thought it was perfectly fine and better than many other rooms we've stayed in. we've stayed at bally's, luxor, Monte Carlo, and mgm (all standard rooms), and paris probably had the best standard room of them all. we also aren't picky and don't expect much in a room.

    I like the Hotel and I am spending 1 night there next visit. I have not had much luck at their table games so I play more at Ballys

    All the rooms are fine...better than many places. If you get a renovated room or even a Red room, you will love it. If the clerk is not specific, ask if it has the new pillow top bedding...those are wonderful. The bathrooms have the seperate shower & tub which we really like. The Paris is our home in LV and love the place. The $20 trick is hit or miss depending on the clerk. Good luck!!

    I love the Red Rooms! I am diamond, but before becoming diamond I had good luck with the $20 tip. I don't call it a trick because it's not a trick to me...if I get a good upgrade, they get the tip...no trick! I've not had it turned down, although have heard of a few who have.

    You will have a good chance at an upgrade since you're checking in mid-week. I personally would much prefer a nicer room over a view, if I couldn't have both. I think you're fine with the regular rooms, but do try for a Red Room upgrade, they truely are worth it.

    The halls aren't that long so don't worry about a room at the end of a hall
    It's set up a like a wheel and the elevators come out in the middle of it and
    the halls branch out from there :peace:

    I would describe the rooms as solid. Nothing spectacular but at the same time nice and they got the job done. I really enjoy Paris for how easy it is I get from your room to the strip. The casino is small and set right on the street. Unlike other properties that are set really far back from the strip

    If you are looking to try and upgrade from the standard roo, both of my stays at Paris, I have stayed in the Le Mans Suite. The den/bedroom are just one large room like most Jr. suites are in Vegas, but it was nice. The best part of th room is the bathroom. Marble floors, jacuzzi tub, separate shower, double vanity. The only real con is that all the Le Mans Suites face east instead of towards the Strip. They are right off the elevator though.

    I stayed at the Paris in February. I had 4 nights comped. When I checked in I had a twenty in my hand. I asked if any Red Room P rooms were available. She looked, said yes and I handed her the $. Very nice hotel and a beautiful room. Enjoy your stay!

    Did the red room have a view of the strip/Bellagio Fountains?
