L'Orangerie Museum in Paris

Because of the passion of so many of "Paris Loving" Fodorites I have booked a trip to Paris. It will be my third one. Jocelyn, Scarlett, Elaine and of course
Beatchick to name a few are responsible for me deciding to go back after less than a year.

Here's my question. Is L'Orangerie Museum open yet?

I emailed the Orangerie earlier in late 2004. The response I got said that the museum would not open in 2005.
I don't think anybody knows for sure.
The last word i read said something about excavating an ancient Roman wall.
Some how the archaeologists get primacy and have been able to shut the museum until hey get done digging up bricks.

In the meantime, we the art lovers, don't get to see the Monet masterworks.
But nobody asked me!!

The Orangerie is closed indefinitely and nobody knows when it will open.

I was afraid L'Orangerie wouldn't be opened when I was there. Oh well, just another excuse to have to go back to Paris.

Scarlett - I am staying at The Brighton Hotel again. Since I am traveling by myself it's the perfect location for me. I always get a room with a view of the Tuileries Garden, Louvre, Eiffel Tower, D'Orsay and if I lean way over on the balcony I can see the Arc d' Triomph. It's home to me even though so little time is spent in the room. This is going to be a rather short trip but since it's going to be my third time to Paris, it's okay Flying from LA on April 25th and leaving Paris on May 1st. 6 days and 5 nights.

We have friends who stayed at the Brighton in December and based on their rave reviews, we tried to get reservations when we decided to go back this spring. There were no rooms available on our dates.
So we rented an apt lol. It looks like such a charming hotel..the cricket balls in a bowl is a cute touch

The Hotel Brighton is on the rue du Rivoli facing the Tuilleries. We stayed there last March and had a nice room with a tiny balcony from which we could see the Tour Eiffel. The hotel seems to be under renovation on a piece by piece basis. We liked the hotel but not the area around it. We did like L'Ardoise which is on the street behind and parallel to rue du Rivoli.

Scarlett, AGM is correct about the area around the hotel. It is touristy, but another reason I like staying there is every morning I start out my day by by feeding the birds and even the fishin the pond. I have done it every day and every trip and now it's one of my rituals that I want to continue doing. It doesn't take up very much of my time nor is it out of the way.

The sparrows are so tame they eat out of my hands. Can you tell I am lover of nature?
