A great hotel, that's very close to the Gare De Lyon train station and only a short walk from the River Seine.

We had the buffet breakfast each day which was more than adequate.
We thought it was good value for the money we paid.

Secondly, and this is the big one, when Rick Steeves (PBS European travel guru suggests taking the metro from the airport or the train station he failed to mention one thing (or at least we failed to notice if he did). Stairs only. Fifty pounds of luggage up and down numerous flights of stairs is "The big suck". But we made it. And to top it off we have a view of the Eiffel Tower from our window. Tammy is happy. That means Scott is happy. ...

I love walking in Paris. Just walking. Not going anywhere, not with a purpose or a plan, but just walking. This took Liam and Andy a few days to understand. They kept thinking we were going somewhere, that we had a destination, and that my wandering was just to torture them.
Finally, Andy gave up ...
