I have just come back from a trip to Paris for the first time - I know I shouldn't have got to forty something without going there, but thats life.
Stayed at the Le Grand, which is just opposite the Grand Opera. It is a beautiful luxurious hotel and I could have stayed for ever!
It is only 2 minutes walk from the bus stop that goes to Charles De Gaulle (in fact we drove to the airport and parked there, getting the bus in/out was fantastically easy).
The room was beautiful, it helped that we got an upgrade being Priority Club members.
The concierge team were fabulous, very helpful, even helping us book another hotel in France for other nights. They sold tickets for all the attractions, a couple of euros more than at the attraction itself but then you don't have to queue. In fact at the Eiffel Tower we walked straight in through a VIP lane! Very cool!
Had lunch in the restaurant on the Sunday and I have never tasted such a beautiful steak, plus the mashed potato was divine. the restaurant staff were attentive and professional without being stuffy or overbearing. Not at all the stereotypes of French waiting staff.
Loved the place and would recommend.
