Paris Rive Gauch

Jerry Morgan, ProfChiara and New Hilton Member each of you provided trips on Paris before I traveled there for my first ever trip to Paris.  Each of you should go into the Travel Business! Thanks!  I spent five nights in the Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel, 17, boulevard Saint-Jacques. The rooms are small but nice and the hotel is very quite. The cost is much less expensive than the Marriott’s Champs-Elysees property (we visited the C-E property, nice!) It is an easy ride on the RER from CDG Airport on the B line to the Denfert Rochereau Station and then proceed to the hotel. You can switch to the # 6 Metro (green) line and exit at the St.Jacques or Glaciere Stations (the hotel is between the two stations)—however, it is easy to walk (down hill) 5 minutes to the hotel from Denfert Rochereau. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful! There are several fine restaurants within walking of the hotel or a one or two metro stop ride. All of Paris is within easy reach by the Metro or RER. I would stay at the property again. Jerry, as you suggested I bought a “Paris Visite” 5 day 6 zone pass which worked on all forms of transportation. The two day museum pass is nice also. New Hilton Member, at your suggestion, we attended one of the many! free musical performances over the weekend, the one we attended was in the square at the Denfert Rochereau RER station-great. We visited Versailles, Arch de Triumph, Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Boat on the Seine, Les Cars Rouges sightseeing bus, Basilique de Sacre-Coeur (some interesting streets and shops getting up the hill to the Sacre-coeur!) My three favorite restaurants within walking of the hotel were: 1. La Closerie des Lilas 171, boulevard du Montparnasse (come to think of it I may have taken RER B from Denfert Rochereau to Port Royal Station for this place); 2. Le Pavillon Montsouris 20, rue Gazan (super food $$$$ beside a small lake located in a park where I ran in the mornings) and 3. Au Petit Marquery 9, boulevard de Port Royal (excellent food service a little slow at times). This is my report to you three and thanks for your help in making this the best.

(For each location tag, you will be guided through a 3-step process to add (1) a city and a state or a city and a country, (2) a Marriott brand, and (3) a Marriott hotel.)
