    Hi, all.

    I'll be in on business in a few weeks, and the bossman is putting me up at Paris. Never stayed there before. My question is this: Is there a way to walk directly out the rear of the property and walk straight to Koval? I'm thinking about how accessible my Ellis Island steaks are going to be for me. Looking at google satellite view, I see a line of virtually-empty parking lots behind the pool and tennis courts, but it's difficult to tell if you can actually walk through them to access Koval.
    Thanks!

    I would recommend walking through Bally's (Bally's and Paris are connected inside), then exiting out the flamingo exits and walking along flamingo to get to EI. While there are ways to walk the back areas of paris walking through Bally's and along flamingo might be the easiest route to take.

    We always take the escalators downstairs at Bally's and go out the side door across from the Sports Book. It's a short walk to EI from there.... :)

    when you come out into Ballys from the connector, go down the escalators and walk to the back of Ballys where the food court is, then exit out those doors. It's only about a 5-7 minute walk from there. Not even a 1/2 mile from that exit.

    Ah, a man after my own heart. As I usually stay in the Bally's-Paris-PHo corridor, and as a fellow EI steak fanatic, I've pondered this problem more than once.

    I like your thinking, but it's my conclusion that there's no magic northwest passage from Paris to EI. The previously mentioned route through Bally's is the best option. If you're like me, when you're walking to EI, you walk fast. You can probably do it in 10-12 minutes total.

    OR, may I suggest you have the bossman switch you to Bally's itself. From the north (Indigo) tower, you can take the elevator directly down to the pool level, and then you're only 5 minutes away. I don't think the Paris rooms are all that fantastic, really.

    Either way, good luck and enjoy!

    Actually if you are staying at paris, there is a walkway in the back area that connects Paris with Bally's. It passes by the village buffet and other stores and restaurants (and the Paris parking lot). You don't have to go outside of Paris to take the connectors or escalators IMHO.

    That's the connector I was talking about. The indoor walkway/mall area that connects the two hotels.

    Sorry, I thought you were referring to the connector (moving walkway) to get you into Bally's.

    don't think its possible. I tried from Planet ho before and ended up on harmon to koval.. not sure there is a cut though between Harman and Flamingo.

    Even if there was you'd only save a minute or two from going through Ballys - which after dark isn't a minute or two I'd try to save..
