LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 1999 -  The Paris-Las Vegas Casino Resort, the world's only resort providing the authentic feel and experience of Paris, France, is taking reservations now! By calling 888-BON-JOUR (888-266-5687), guests can make reservations for this sophisticated Parisian-themed property when it opens this fall.

Room rates at the Parisian-themed casino resort will range from $129 to $239, with suites available from $350 to $5,000. 

Bringing to life the ambiance and spirit of Paris, France, the $760 million casino resort will feature authentic reproductions of famous Parisian landmarks including a 50-story replica of the Eiffel Tower looming over the Las Vegas strip, the Arc de Triomphe, the Paris Opera House and the Louvre. The 34-story hotel tower, which offers 2,916 guestrooms including 295 suites, will be fashioned after the famous Hotel de Ville.

"Taking our first reservations is an exciting step toward our grand opening in September 1999," said Paul V. Pusateri, executive vice president, Paris-Las Vegas. "We want visitors who are planning a special vacation to guarantee themselves an authentic Parisian escape with the fine dining, shopping, and the exquisite casino of Paris-Las Vegas. We believe we will offer the premier accommodations and experience in Las Vegas this fall when we open our doors."

Guests will feel truly pampered in elegantly appointed guest rooms that feature custom design furnishings, crown molding and rich French fabrics. Paris-Las Vegas' guest rooms are furnished with a stately armoire that serves as the closet, further enhancing the French feel of guest rooms. Spacious marble bathrooms offer separate bathtub and shower with elegant fixtures, linen hand towels, a large vanity with shelves, hair dryer and a make-up mirror.

Further bringing the experience of Paris to life, guests at Paris-Las Vegas will be able to stroll down the quaint cobblestone streets of the property's upscale shopping district and choose from a variety of French fashions and other French products. The opening of Paris-Las Vegas also will bring a new level of cuisine to Las Vegas with its eight French-inspired restaurants. Ranging from a working French bakery to a sophisticated Brasserie to an aromatic Rotisserie to the elegant Eiffel Tower restaurant, Paris-Las Vegas will offer guests many delectable
French cuisine options.

Paris-Las Vegas' 7,900-square-meter (85,000 square feet) casino will feature 100 table games, a race and sports book and more than 2,200 slot machines. Painted to emulate the Parisian sky, the casino's 12-meter (40 feet) ceiling encloses the casino's cobblestone pathways, ornate street signs and a bridge that is a replica of the Pont Alexander III. Rising from the floor of the casino will be three of the four legs of the Eiffel Tower which will jut out through the casino ceiling into the Las Vegas skyline.


Paris-Las Vegas was proposed by Bally Entertainment Corp. Chairman Arthur Goldberg in 1995, to be built on a 24-acre site just south of Bally’s-Las Vegas on the southeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road. 

Hilton Hotels Corporation took over as developer of the project when Hilton acquired Bally Entertainment in 1996. Bergman, Walls & Youngblood, Ltd. were hired as the project’s architect. Yates-Silverman, Inc. and Kovacs & Associates were chosen as designers. 

Hilton broke ground on the Paris project on April 18, 1997, in a ceremony that included Clark County Commissioner Yvonne Atkinson-Gates, as well as Hilton Gaming President Arthur Goldberg, Paris architect Joel Bergman, Executive Vice President-Paris Paul Pusateri and showgirls from the Bally’s-Las Vegas production show, "Jubilee." 


For further recreation, guests can relax at the two-acre roof-top swimming pool set in a manicured French garden, or play tennis on one of eight lighted, outdoor tennis courts. Guests can also take an elevator ride to the observation deck on top of the Eiffel Tower for a breathtaking view of the famed Las Vegas strip. Paris-Las Vegas will offer a European spa and health club for guests to indulge themselves in a wide range of traditional spa services.

Scheduled to open this fall, Paris-Las Vegas Casino Resort is owned and operated by Park Place Entertainment Corporation. The property will feature 2,916 guest rooms, a 7,900 - square-meter (85,000 square feet) casino, eight restaurants, five lounges, 13,000 square meters (140,000 square feet) of meeting and convention space, and 2,925 square meters (31,500 square feet) of retail space.

Park Place Entertainment Corporation is the world's largest gaming company, as measured by casino square footage and revenues. It is the only casino gaming company with a leading presence in Nevada, New Jersey and Mississippi -- the three largest gaming markets in the U.S. In 1999 the company will have 18 gaming properties located throughout the United States and in Australia and Uruguay, with a total of 1.4 million square feet of casino space and more than 23,000 hotel rooms.
