Tips on Finding a Great Hotel in Paris

Great Values are Available - If You Know How to Look

Hoteliers in Paris have admitted to me, Paris tourism is in a slump by as much as 30%. What that means is the savvy traveler can find bargains - if they know where to look.  For instance, we found a 5-star luxury hotel in the 5th arrondissement for $154 a night, right next to a 2-star hotel charging $150 per night.  I'll take the upgrade for $4 any day or night.  The key to finding the best rates is to know what leverage you have and then to apply it.  In today's blog post, The Traveling Professor tells you the tips to get the best hotel rates possible on your next tour to Paris.

Two Quirky Hotels in Paris

For Those Who Want Something Out Of The Ordinary

traveling professorLooking for something unique and unusual in Paris?  Have I got two hotels for you.  They are both in VERY desirable locations and priced well below average.   One of them offers typical Paris rooms but the location (probably no other Paris hotel is more centrally located than this one) and situation is very unusual.  The second one is eclectic and each room is different, a throwback to a different time.  So, read my blog post and find out about two very unique Paris hotels.

My Favorite Paris Hotels

Let's Hear Your Recommendations Too

Paris hotel recommendationsOne of the most important decisions in taking a tour of Paris is lodging.   For me, location is the most important factor.  I look for a hotel that is centrally located, in a safe area, and near transportation options.   Next, I want to make sure my Paris hotel is clean, comfortable, and quiet.  I don't necessarily look for a luxury Paris hotel, in fact, I prefer smaller, family owned Paris hotels. Read my blog post for guidelines on selecting a Paris hotel and for my recommendations.
