This will be our first trip to Paris. Planning on spending 3 days prior to getting ship at LeHavre.I would highly recommend you to check Paris Marriott Champs Elysees Hotel
What is the best area to book a hotel? Is Paris walkable or quite spread out?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
We will be staying in Paris for several days before a British Isles cruise next August. My 85 year old mother in law will be traveling with us. We would like a convenient location so that we wouldn't have to do a whole lot of walking. Plus, having a HOHO stop near our hotel would be perfect. Any suggestions?If you want to visit sites within easy reach of the River Seine, then tickets for the Bateau Bus river taxis are really good. It's a hop on, hop off service across 9 stops - Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame etc.

Any suggestions?Have a look at hotels in the 1st Arondissement- you can't get more central & walkable than this. Look at hotels near rue de Faubourg St Honore and the Rue Rivoli if you want to be near the Louvre and some nice restaurants. The Hotel Castiglione is pleasant and worth a Google.
I'm so glad I found this thread. I've been looking at hotels in Paris for weeks now and finally made a decision to stay in Saint Germain De Pres, I booked La Villa Saint Germain on Rue Jacob (near Cafe De Flore). I was debating between Saint Germain and the 1st Arrondisment and finally made my decision. This will be my 2nd time in Paris, I was there over 40 years ago, so it's pretty much like my first time again.We do not know your hotel (there are thousands of hotels throughout Paris) but we do know St Germain des Pres, Rue Jacob and the 6th. You have chosen our favorite neighborhood and you are going to find all kinds of interesting cafes, restaurants and shops in your neck of the woods. Not sure about the Paris pass as you need to look at the cost/benefit against what you plan on doing during the stay. Hope you love the Left Bank as much as we do .
Hubby and I will be there for 4 nights next May and I'm open to any and all suggestions of places to eat, the best way to get to Versailles. We aren't big museum people, of course we'd like to see Mona at the Louve but we don't want to spend the entire day there. I'm thinking of buying the Paris pass for the museums, has anyone done that? We also would love to take a boat ride on the Seine in the evening.
Nee Paris????It's a bit of Franglais - you know the last letter in French is rarely, if ever, pronounced - so why bother typing it when we all know the real word is 'Need' ...
What are you trying to say?
