The Parisian Macao (Chinese: 澳門巴黎人) is a luxury hotel in Cotai, Macau, China owned by Las Vegas Sands, which has a half-scale Eiffel Tower as one its landmarks.[1] It was originally expected to be operational in late 2015,[2] with that later changed to August 2016.[3] The hotel officially opened on 13 September 2016.[4]

History[edit]

Development and construction[edit]

The Parisian under construction in August 2015.

The Parisian was estimated to cost around $2.5 billion and is being funded by Las Vegas Sands with $1.5 billion in bank loans and $900 million to $1 billion in cash. The company will also have to pay a penalty of 900,000 patacas ($112,700) for the delay in developing the plot.[5]

Construction began in February 2013.[6] It was originally expected to be operational in late 2015,[2] but was open in September 2016. Launch quarter results were below expectations.[7]

Design[edit]

The Parisian has a half-scale 525-foot Eiffel Tower as one of its landmarks.[1]

The property has approximately 3000 hotel rooms, 170 shops and 56,000 sq feet of meeting space. In addition, the resort features a 1,200-seat theatre. For the first month of the hotel's opening, the theatre hosted Thriller Live, and hopes to attract more Broadway and West End performances. [8][9][10]

The interior has a large fountain and atrium giving a feel of modern France. There are 150 gaming tables allotted to the property, of which 100 were allotted at launch and the next 50 will be allotted over the next years.[11]

Shops in the retail arcade include Adidas, Calvin Klein and Breitling.
