Los Angeles, California
March 10, 2005
I liked the neighborhood a lot. It was residential and not touristy at all, so I felt I was seeing how Parisians really lived. There were restaurants all around, a supermarket, etc. If you were to choose this option and you don't mind stairs, choose one of the top floor rooms. When you get to the top of the stairs, a door opens onto a walkway that's outside. So you get a view and you also escape the smoke that builds up inside the hotel (this is Paris, after all, where everyone smokes).
