Two more resorts have reopened in Las Vegas after being closed due to the COVID-19 mandatory shutdown. On Thursday, June 18, 2020 both the Westgate Resort & Casino and Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino reopened their doors. All the below pictures were taken on Friday, June 19.
Westgate Resort & Casino
The Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino opened as the International Hotel Casino in 1969. It then became the Las Vegas Hilton and then the LVH. The Westgate is still a hotel, but many units have been converted into Timeshare units. They have 2,956 all non-smoking rooms and suites on 30 floors.
The Westgate is not on the Las Vegas Strip. It is next to the Las Vegas Convention Center on Paradise Road. The best thing about this property is the Superbook, the World’s largest Race & Sports Book.
They have a full casino with the latest slot machines. The casino pit features many of the most popular table games. The poker room remains closed at this time. They use the WOW (World of Westgate) players card and the casino is operated by Paragon Gaming.
Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino
Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is located in the “center”of the Las Vegas Strip. It has 2,916 rooms and suites that were all recently renovated. It opened September 1, 1999 with a Paris, France theme. The Soleil pool is located directly below the Eiffel Tower replica and the 2-acre deck is reminiscent of a Parisian garden.
Paris Las Vegas has a very modern casino that is easy to navigate. It has the latest slot machines as well as some older slots and a full casino pit with all the popular table games. They have a nice Race & Sports Book. They are owned by Caesars Entertainment and use the Caesars Rewards players card.
Fun Fact: One of the icons of the Las Vegas skyline is the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas. This monumental structure stands at the height of 46 stories and is a half-scale replica of the actual landmark in France. It was originally planned as full size, but had to be shrunk due to the nearby McCarran International Airport.
