Hotel E Mail

The hotel Relais St. Germaine is a Fodors choice in Paris. Can anyone tell me how to make a reservation apart from the telephone. I can't find the hotel on the Relais Chateaux web site.

You can book Relais St. Germaine on several sites, including http://travelocity-leisure.excite.com

Try a Google search or other.

It is a member of the Atel group, but when I try to access their web site, it not only doesn't load, it shuts down my Netscape. There is this message on the search site: "Sorry we use HTML Frame and you can't view all the ATEL Hotels site. For any question on reservation contact us to [email protected]" which is an e-mail address. (I feel like Sherlock Holmes)

Hope this helps.

You can find it and book thru French Hotel Reservations Center which is accessible thru www.france.com (just go to hotel section); I like that web site a lot. (BTW "Relais" is just a common French word that means inn or auberge, so it's in a lot of hotel names and some restaurants, also, so having that in a name doesn't mean it belongs to that one particular marketing consortium.)

I always thought it (relais) translated roughly as "resort" (and precisely what is the definition of a resort, even in English, pray tell!) - - but here are some people that are prepared to give it a whole new meaning!

http://www.cyber-relais.com/

"the Cyber-relais concept : each room is equipped with a WC, bathroom, telephone, television and PC connected permanently on Internet (included in the price of the room)."

Interestingly enough, I know of no such chain marketing themselves in such a way here in the US.

Best wishes,

Rex

Rex- closest thing I've found in US is in the W Hotels and Hotel Nikko in LA -- but internet connection is extra $10 or so per night.

The word "relais" does not mean or connote a resort. It originally meant a place where one exchanged tired horses for fresh ones along a traveling route. It means "relay" in English and has all the same connotations. It came to be related to accommodations through the horse connection but also as a means of expressing a place where one could stop and refresh oneself while en route, for a brief period or for a night or more.

I knew the "relais de poste" connection - - but I guess I thought it had been "appropriated" by the hotel industry to now mean resort - - and not merely by the Relais Chateaux group.

Thanks, StC
