"Place de la Concorde Fountain ~Gone" Top 5 Page for this destination Paris Hotel Tip by Yaqui

Paris Hotel, Las Vegas: 1 reviews and 5 photos

This beautiful fountain has been replaced with an addition called the Sugar Shack Restaurant. Also, the city is trying to conserve their water so many of the fountains are either not running or replaced with flower beds.

One of the unique faucets about these mega casinos is each of them having a theme. I hope visitors appreciate the attention to detail to the architecture. I absolutely love how much attention to this detail that Paris Las Vegas has put into the construction of their hotel. For instance the beautiful fountain in front of the hotel I can never stop photographing whenever we stroll along strip. It replicates the beautiful fountain located at The "Place de la Concorde" in Paris. It lies alongside the Seine river between the Champs Elysées Avenue and the Tuileries garden. Designed by architect Jacques-Ange Gabriel in 1763 to celebrate the glory of almighty king Louis XV of France, it saw the beheading of his successor and grandson, Louis XVI, on January 21st 1793 during the French revolution. In this square, thousands of victims were executed with the guillotine from 1793 to 1795.
