When Paris Las Vegas opened on the Strip in 1999, it provided one of the skyline's signature silhouettes: a 541-foot-high Eiffel Tower, a replica of the original erected for the 1889 World's Fair, albeit half the size.
Twenty years later, that iconic spire is the setting of a new $1.7 million nightly light show, with 300 colored lights and 800 white strobes flashing in a choreographed display every 30 minutes from sunset to midnight. With the Bellagio fountains erupting across the street, it's a 1-2 punch of Vegas grandeur.
The show is one element in a series of updates for the resort's 20th anniversary. In May, when Paris Las Vegas expects to finish renovations of the final batch of 1,600 rooms, all of the hotel's 2,900 guestrooms and suites will have been updated since 2016. Also new to the resort is the $3.8 million Voie Spa & Salon, where treatments draw inspiration from France and guests can enjoy a VinoPerfect facial using grape-derived products or a dijon honey and milk mask to calm skin. It's a fresh experience in a Strip resort that's aging gracefully.
