I would like to know if anyone has stayed at this hotel and exactly how small the rooms are. I have the smallest possible room available so I am worried. I was also told there was no Concierge lounge at this hotel. Very dissappointing.
Also can anyone tell me about how to get a trip out to Colleville Sur Mir - american Cemetery out near Normandy? I would like to spend a day out there. Can you help on a strategy?
Having stayed at Vendome we had plenty of room. The location was outstanding, with the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Seine, and shopping all close. Transportation was also easy for us as Rue Rivoli, was very close and a major Paris street. You may enjoy walking over to the "Pillars" from the movie Charade with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn.
We drove to Normandy and it took under two hours, there are plenty of tours and easy to arrange once at the hotel. The "Big Green or Red" busses are great for seeing Paris and have related trips to Normandy.
Good luck, you are going to have a great time!
I am trying to decide between Vendome, Le Parc Trocadero and Marriott CE. I am taking niece for the first time, I have been many times. I want her to have a great first visit where she gets to feel and breathe Paris so I am most drawn to the Le Parc. Away from the crowds in a lovely neighborhood. Anybody stay there recently?
Still waiting for the first reviews of new Eiffel Tower Renassance.
You are at a great place.
Enjoy the wonderful location and great places you can walk to. Don't forget to walk to The Seine in the evening and join the many people watching the river activities in the evening.
Let us MI know if you have specific information that we may be able to share with you.
