    Hi All -

    I am trying to book a quick room night for tonight in Vegas...

    Here's the $10,000 question - would you book Paris or Planet Hollywood if the price was the same (free)?

    Let me know.

    What's your goal? Do you want a livelier casino vibe to it with a younger crowd? Pick PHo. Do you want a quieter, still fun and slightly more grown-up experience geared towards couples? Choose Paris.

    I agree, with DReynolds....younger or partier PH, older or laid back Paris. I am in my 50s and trying to decide the same thing...I prefer quiet so leaning towards Paris. Rooms are about the same size, PH has better bathrooms. Food choices at PH I think are better and more numerous. Only downside for me is really the loud party atmosphere. I am taking an 84 year old with me and neither of us want the loud casino.

    I am not a young partier but I cannot stand the vibe,or lack of any positive vibe at Paris.
    It always seems dead.
    I would definitely choose PH or even Bally's over Paris.North tower rooms at Ballys are larger than rooms at Ph or Paris.

    Don't forget the ABC store at Planet Hollywood, cheap water/snacks and other items. I don't mind the little Sin City bar either.

    I have a differing opinion than the poster above. I wouldn't even conside PH if Paris was the other option.
    - Better theme
    - Better food options
    - Better atmosphere in the casino
    - Rooms are way more than adequate


    plus, if you want to go to PH, it is right next door.

    I agree with most of the posters above. I have stayed at Paris twice, and it is a much quieter place and older crowd. Planet Hollywood gets real loud and is more of a party atmosphere. PH also has Earl of Sandwich which is so amazing if you have never tried their sandwiches, but being next door to each other, I would choose which place based on what crowd you prefer; young and loud or older and not as loud.

    Paris also has at least one table of single-deck 3:2 blackjack.

    Bathrooms bigger at PH? We haven't stayed there since they were changing over from Aladdin but our bath was not larger that Paris but it did have a soaker tub. :)

    I just got back from PH yesterday and bleh! I don't like it. I've stayed there twice in the past year, and don't have much positive to report. The parking is a pain in the ass, the valet is slow, the rooms are a little outdated, the maids left cleaning supplies in our room, they don't even have bedspreads anymore it's just a balled up blanket. We couldn't even find our elevators from the casino floor. Our meal at Planet Dailies was meh.. The slot machines are outdated. Everything is just a little dingy and banged up. It was "remodeled" but not really? if that makes sense (actually, I kinda feel this way about most of the Caesars properties, it's just all a little bit in disrepair compared to the MGM properties). BUT it does have the shopping, which is a huge plus, but it's what a 2 minute walk to get there from Paris ;).

    I think Paris has a better layout, and it's smaller and more manageable, they have FAR better restaurants (I love Mon Ami, CREPES, and Sugar Factory). The rooms are similar. I haven't stayed there in 2 years, but it would be my choice. Overall though, similar properties.. I just think Paris has a slight edge on a lot of things. Seriously though #1 being the damn parking situation at PH.

    It would be a coin flip for me.

    Paris
    - Better restaurants, especially for breakfast.
    - More low key vibe
    - Great bathrooms - I can't stand bathrooms with the small tub for a shower.

    PHo
    - 100X better late night drunk food at Earl of Sandwich
    - High energy vibe
    - In general more lively tables
    - Never stayed in a room there, but generally don't make my decision based on the bed I will pass out on.


    To me it depends which type of mood I'm in. If I want to sit back and relax, Paris is far better for this. If I want a table that will be cheering until the wee hours, PHo it is. The table limits will be higher at PHo. While anything less than $25 might be difficult at either some nights, I've had better luck getting on such a table at Paris.
