It was the OTHER "La Ville-Lumiere" (City Of Lights).... Las Vegas!
And yes, this is the "Eiffel Tower" at Paris Hotel. Actually I was poolside when I took this photo. Not a bad place to catch some sun, sip some cocktails and take a dip in the pool.
Sure the real deal would have been magnifique, but this was a nice alternative -- especially for a 1 1/2 hour flight. We saw a fabulous show (Cirque du Soleil's "Love" -- all set to Beatles music), ate some great meals, relaxed by the pool and shopped. Not too shabby, considering it was 20 degrees and snowing back in Denver.
