MY RECENT TRIPS

Paris

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience in Paris and visited several hotels.  My favorite was Sofitel Arc De Triomphe. This property is in a great location near the Arc De Triomphe and a 5 minute walk to the Champs- Elysees.  The Metro Stop is Etoile or George V and then a 10 minute walk to the hotel.  Is has a very welcoming lobby and reception area and a quaint bar serving light fare just as you enter.  This hotel has a “hip” vibe and it is very warm colors.  Great artwork!

Central Travel Amenities include:
   Macaroon and fruit plate
   Food & Beverage credit 50.00 Euro
   Upgrade based on availability
   Early check in / late check out based on availability


The hotel has 124 rooms and 5 meeting rooms.  The 66 deluxe rooms are beautiful, modern and cozy colors.  Most have king beds but there are a few with twins. All offer a large double shower and a lot of storage.  The 31 Junior suite are spacious and inviting with a soaker tub and double walk in shower.  They also offer an apartment with a very spacious room with closed off living area for the kids sleeping.  Separate ½ bath also for the living area.  This would be a great family room.The restaurant is open for breakfast from 630am – 1000am and then it turns into lunch and is open until 11 pm.  There is also a continental breakfast served at the bar in the lobby. (14 euro)

General thoughts on Paris:
Our tour by Walks (which is Signature) of Notre Dame, Saint Chapelle (stain glass is a must see) and the Concierge was excellent.  Violet, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable, personable and funny.  We all learned so much on the tour and would recommend it to anyone.  Walking tours are great way to see the sights and plan ahead!  Max on this tour is 15 and have headsets to hear the guide.


The metro is easy to use for major tourist sights, but difficult to use for smaller areas.  Uber was relatively inexpensive and much easier to get around.  A private transfer to Charles de Gaulle is the ONLY way to go.  The traffic was crazy and our driver was great.  Allow every bit of 3 hours with security tight and it does take time to get through it all.

Stop and enjoy a pastry and coffee.  Taste Paris and take in sights that are like no other!
