We were supposed to fly into Paris in the early afternoon and take a train out to Eastern France. Our Flight out was delayed more than 4 hours (thanks American Airlines!) and it was catch up from there. My wife even broke down in the London airport when she realized we wouldn't make Paris in time to catch our train.
We got to Gare de L'Est around 8pm and were looking for a cheap hotel. We tried the Holiday Inn first, and the manager offered to give us the executive suite for the same price as a normal room. It was a little pricey for our taste, but we told him we might be back. And after being terrified of some of the other cheaper options in the area we came running back to this one.
At the end of that day it's a Holiday Inn, I'm sure that's positive for some people and negative for others, but for us it was just a nice stay after a stressful 24 hours. Everyone there was super nice, and it was very convenient to hop on the first train out the next morning.
