Here are The Traveling Professor's picks for 2-star hotels in Paris.  Be careful, some do not have air conditioning which is no problem outside of the summer months.

Hôtel Chopin.  This is everything a Paris hotel should be.  It is located amongst antique shops and quaint boutiques inside a pedestrian arcade in a lovely part of town.  Good métro and bus transportation is close by.  Owner Philippe Bidal’s Old World decorations of charm and grace makes this my favorite 2-star hotel.  Bright, airy and surprisingly big rooms romantically gaze over the rooftops of Paris.   46, passage Jouffroy in the 9th  arrondissement.  Reasonable rates.  Website: www.hotelchopin.fr.  It is my top pick.

Hôtel du College de France.
The word “elegant” has probably never been used to describe this basic but clean, comfortable and quiet 2-star hotel in the Latin Quarter:  Many travelers have given me positive reports regarding stays at the HDCDF and I can personally vouch for them.  It is an excellent value and well-located. 7, rue Thénard in the Latin quarter. Website:  www.hotel-collegedefrance.com.

Hôtel Emile. 2 stars.  A chic hotel with smallish rooms in the Marais close to the St. Paul métro.  Rooms are a good value in the 135-175 euro range.  2, Rue Mahler, 4th arrondissement.  Website:  www.hotelemile.com.

Top 5 Tips for Exchanging Money

Top Tips for Exchanging MoneyIn Europe, the only place I have ever seen U.S. dollars is the LHR airport.  I have never seen U.S. dollars accepted anywhere else in Europe. Since the introduction of the euro about 20 years ago, things have gotten simpler since a single currency is accepted in most European Union countries, there are still many countries (Iceland, Norway, Croatia, Denmark come to mind) who do not accept euros. In this blog post The Traveling Professor gives some simple and never published before ways to exchange currency to use in Europe.

How to Save on Airport Parking

save money on airport parkingThe Traveling Professor is surprised about how costs can vary on airport parking. For example, at New York's JFK airport parking can be about $25 if parking on-site, about $18 a day if parking off-site.  Westchester airport charges an amazing $30 a day. At Dallas DFW airport it is $31 per day.  So, if traveling on a 2-week trip, it would not be impossible to spend a whopping $350 just to park a car.  Considering airfares to Europe are only a few hundred dollars more, that's a lot of money.  Nice friends or relatives may offer to drive you to the airport, but if you are like me, I hate to impose upon them  An obvious alternative is to use a close by off-site facility which usually saves 30%-50% and sometimes that is a good choice.  In today's blog post, The Professor will give a few more good tips on how to save on airport parking.
