Last weekend I was in town for Affiliate Summit 2014, which took place at the Paris Hotel, centrally located on the Las Vegas strip across the street from the Bellagio. I had booked a room there at Paris to stay during the conference and I ended up on the 24th floor after asking nicely to be as high up as possible at the front desk.
I think I would describe the room itself as pretty standard. Upon walking in I found a small hallway with the bathroom immediately to the right, and the main room area straight out in front of me. There were 2 queen beds facing a huge wooden wardrobe with hanging closet space on the sides, a small empty fridge in the middle to store my own snacks/drinks, a small safe, an iron with ironing board, and a gateway to Narnia.
To the right of the wardrobe was a flatscreen TV mounted to the wall above a small desk and chair. Next to the window were two sitting chairs and a small round table, which had a stack of magazines on it. Most notably was a copy of Vegas Player with Britney on the cover, whom I was sad to be missing on this trip as her show was on break til the 29th (yep a fan of the Britster here). My window faced the rear of the building so no Strip view, but I did have a view of the newly constructed “High Roller”, Vegas’ (bigger) answer to London eye.
The bathroom was pretty spacious but I found the ivy-ish wallpaper to be kinda odd. I did however enjoy the marbled look on the floor, sink, and shower. The tub was separate and standard sized. A hair dryer was mounted on the wall to the left of the sink, and a small coffee pot sat underneath it. The water pressure ended up being pretty horrible.
Overall I thought the room was comfortable enough for the 3 nights I stayed in it. The bed was soft and I had plenty of pillows. I did wake up a few times at night to a loud buzzing coming from the minifridge. I also detected a bit of a smokey smell but it wasn’t unbearable, and could’ve just been me smelling my own hair after spending time at the casino…
The room wasn’t modern or huge but was quiet and clean, The rate was about $100/night plus resort fee. I enjoyed my time in the Paris hotel itself walking the cobblestone paths, trying the restaurants, and getting some great networking time in at the marketing conference.
‘Til next time!
PS. A few notes on some eateries there at Paris. Burger Brasserie is a great spot for a burger and to catch a game on TV, I tried the ‘le classique’ burger while taking in the Broncos game and a business lunch (how’s that for multi-tasking?). Think sports bar/grille meets nice French restaurant. La Creperie was a good spot for a quick snack, one afternoon I tried the Shrimp Scampi. In the mornings I grabbed my latte at Cafe Belle Madeleine, an always busy but cute coffee/pastry shop. J’adore caffeine!
