BACKSTORY: The Paris Las Vegas hotel & casino lncludes a half scale, 541' replica of the Eiffel Tower, a sign in the shape of the Montgolfier balloon, a 2/3 size Arc de Triomphe, a replica of La Fontaine des Mers, and a 1,200-seat theatre called Le Théâtre des Arts. The façade was inspried by the Paris Opera House and the Louvre. The Eiffel Tower replica was originally planned to be full scale, but because of the local airport's proximity that was not possible. The back legs of its Eiffel Tower actually come down through the ceiling into the casino floor. Paris cost USD $785 million and occupies 24 acres. It is one of my favorite places to stay in Vegas, and I am a huge fan of the two restaurants Mon Ami Gabi and The Eiffel Tower Restaurant.
