Thread Details

I'm heading to Las Vegas tomorrow and was just wondering about people's experience with wifi charges at Paris Las Vegas.

I've read in some places that the hotel charges $15/day, but in other places I've read that although you have to accept the charges, they'll later remove them from the bill when you check out. I was wondering if that was an exceptional deal someone received, or whether that was typically done.

I know there is free wifi at one of their restaurants downstairs, but I was hoping to be able to use my laptop while in my room.

It would make the difference between whether I just took an iPad or whether I took the heavier laptop with me. If I had free wifi, I might want to stream a Netflix movie or two while I'm there, and then the laptop would be worth taking.

Like most higher end strip hotels Paris will charge a "resort fee" which includes wifi (and an Ethernet connection). Unless you're a player, they usually won't waive the fee. Some hotels have the wifi as a daily option. It's a separate fee that you can purchase ala-carte.

Either way, it's a rip off.

Paris Las Vegas is part of Ceasar's Resorts and they DO NOT CHARGE a resort fee.
There is a charge of $14.99 per 24 hour period for Wifi service. That charge does not include any other amenities.
MGM Resorts DO charge a resort fee that includes WiFi, certain in room phone calls, a USA Today paper, Business Center amenities, and access to a fitness center. It ranges from $8.95 at Circus Circus to $25 at MGM Grand.

Hmmm.. I know Paris does not charge a resort fee.... but I was feeling a little hopeful that the wifi fee might be waived. Maybe there's not much hope of that. I'm taking my laptop anyway - I have some Netflix DVDs I can watch on it.... I can take it downstairs to the cafe if I want to do some heavy internet browsing, checking email, etc.

Unless your Diamond or Seven Stars, don't count on it. At all. We were just there. Our coin in was pretty substantial, and the only thing we had comped was a few meals.

I brought a mobile hotspot with me. I don't have a big enough bandwidth allowance to stream a lot of video or anything, but it was enough to let me do some basic surfing and email checking from the room. From what I could tell, yes I would have been charged. As it was I got my room comped for 3 nights and I chose to get 2 buffets (one Sunday brunch, and one lunch buffet on a different day) for free using points. It was very nice to be able to jump the buffet line (or any restaurant line) with as little as a Platinum membership card.

Also, I should add that I did successfully use the $20 trick to get the comped room upgraded to a newly renovated deluxe Red room on an upper floor. Smilie

I think we have a winner!

Same deal in Atlantic City except in some of the player's lounges there is free WIFI.
