Paris Las Vegas is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Stripin Paradise, Nevada. The property is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment Corp. As its name suggests, its theme is the city of Paris, France; it includes a half scale, 541-foot (165 m) tall replica of the Eiffel Tower, a sign in the shape of the Montgolfier balloon, a two-thirds size Arc de Triomphe, a replica of La Fontaine des Mers, and a 1,200-seat theatre called Le Théâtre des Arts. The front of the hotel suggests the Paris Opera House.
The cost of the Paris was estimated at $760 million. Construction on the project began in May 1997 and was completed in April 1999. When the scale model of the Eiffel Tower was designed, it was planned to be full scale, but the airport was too close and the tower had to be shrunk. The scale is approximately 1:2. The property that the Paris Las Vegas is built on covers 24 acres (9.7 ha).
Paris Las Vegas opened on September 1, 1999, with fireworks being shot from the Eiffel Tower.
Beginning in 2010, Caesars Entertainment Corp. has begun a series of improvement projects that will see some removal of the Parisian theme. Caesars is beginning to phase out the French greeters around the property, and in early 2010 begun a major remodel project at the front entrance. The project debuted in spring 2011 and includes a new nightclub dubbed ‘Chateau’.
