Looking for recommendations and Guidance for Paris Hotels and Itnerary.

Jump to last reply

Going to Paris for the 1st time (also 1st time in Europe) the end of May arriving early in the morning on a Sat and leaving Tues morning. Been doing alot of research on the areas of paris and trying to find the best location for a 1st time visitor as location will be the key to maximize our short time there. I am struggling with the hotel and our itinerary. I have read some forums and have seen that people seem to stay in the Latin Quarter or Saint Germain. Since we plan on walking alot of places I am wondering if the 1st would be a better option. I just dont know where to stay. I am reaching out to see if someone can give me some useful information, recommendations and guidance.

1. Hotel recommendations- looking for 3 star or above hotel, Prefer to spend $1000 or less for 3 nights, would prefer a room above a standard room as I prefer not stay in a closet. Somewhere that is comfortable and not competely outdated. Would like to have a balcony or big windows that open but this is not a deal breaker.

2. Recommendations for best transportation- will need a transfers from Charles De Gaulle Airport when arriving and departing from Orly. Prefer either getting a transfer service or taxi...which is better and if transfer service any recommendations on a company?

Things we would like to see in 3 days are below. I know we will not be able to spend alot of time at each location but if anyone has any suggestions on an order of seeing things it would be greatly appreciatated!!

1. Seine Rive Cruise (plan on doing in the evening)
2. Effifle Tower (plan on seeing in the evening)
3. Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris
4. Musée du Louvre ( only planning to spend a few hours there)
5. Jardin du Luxembourg ( would like to take a walk through as I hear it is beautiful
6. Arc de Triomphe
7. Would like to take a walk in the area where all the fashion designers have stores
8. Basilique du Sacre-Coeur
9. Palais Garnier (Paris National Opera)
10. Musée d'orsay
11. Panthéon Monument

I am sure there are a few other things I am missing here...but I would like to see some of the sights to see some of the highlights and take some pictures, walk around and take it all in and have some time to stop and just relax in a cafe!

Plan on seeing some of the things at night like the Eiffle tower and take the Seine river Cruise (I hear that it is the best time to take the cruise) and would also like to go to a show, Lido or Moulin Rouge (any suggetions which is better?)

Sorry this is a long request but I thank anyone who responds in advance for their time and recommendations.
