Day 5 and 6 landed us (finally) on the Strip itself and a 2 night free stay at Paris was enjoyed by all 3 of us.
Again, we were accommodated nicely with an early check-in and decided to just take whatever room we were given. Unfortunately we didn't get the Bellagio water view this time and while views aren't important to me, I have to admit to feeling somewhat miffed when the only view was a concrete barrier in front of our window. But again, I got over it quickly as I was once again flying out the door for more gambling and shopping.
Paris is simply beautiful....from the moment you walk onto the cobblestone walkways, to the nice furnishings in the room. Having said this, I quickly remembered the negatives from last year's visit.....the extremely bad acoustics that allows you to hear everything around you - other rooms and hallways. The other negative is not being allowed to empty the mini-refrig. They have built in sensors that if you even move one item, it is instantly changed to your room via computer.
But the bathroom is to die for with separate tub and shower....wonderful for 3 women traveling together.
We could have spent every morning between the bakery and crepe places, but forced ourselves to partake in other meals such as the steak special after 11 pm. The dualing piano guys along the path towards Bally's are not to be missed....a great way to pull up a seat and enjoy a drink.
Once again, video keno was tight and in the case of Paris, they are hard to find many. I much prefer to spend my gambling time at the hotels that I stay in, so this is a concern over the long term as I'm sure free visits aren't in the future if I don't gamble much there.
Side trips to casinos were Aladdin which was a new discovery for me and one that I hope to return to over and over (read: they had hundreds of video keno). Tried roulette for the first time on this trip and enjoyed the friendly tables where we got to joke around with people.
Shopping was enjoyed at Wynn, Aladdin, Venetian and an incredible cigar shop across from The Stardust in a little strip mall. 4 older cuban men sit there and hand roll them in front of you. Much better prices then what we were finding in shops like at the Venetian (although it was kind of cool to look at what a $300 cigar was).
Took in a meal at Harley Davidson which was very nice as well. Loved watching the motorcycles moving above us while eating.
We also visited Wynn which is reviewed separately.
