Trip report Paris and a couple of sidetrips

Jump to last reply

I returned a couple of weeks ago from 10 fabulous days in Paris. Four of us arrived at CDG 7:30 p.m. on Bastille Day. We took Parishuttle (had about 30 min. wait)to our hotel, the Mayfair in the 1st Arr. We checked in, dropped our bags in our rooms, freshened up and walked the two minutes to the Place de la Concorde to watch the fireworks behind the Eiffel tower. The area and bridges were crowded with locals and tourists and the fireworks display was quite a spectacular welcome to Paris.

Our rooms at the Mayfair were clean, large by european standards, and one had a balcony overlooking the street. The bathrooms were huge with all the mod cons you'd need. The staff was delightful and helpful. But it was the location that was perfect. A short walk to the Seine, Louvre, Madeleine, Opera Garnier, metro stop - really the best location imaginable.
