This is what you should see in the book/dictionary right at BOUTIQUE HOTEL.
Centrally located (close to the Arch of Triumph and Champs Elysees), well trained staff (everybody knows English and how to ask you if you need anything or if they can be of any assistance), rooms based on just three or four colours themes/schemes.
It's the perfect thing for a posh incentive group, or if you really want the Parisian romantic experience with your future wife.
You pay a little more but you get so much more.
Be elegant! Balzac is.

So some of the sections have been boarded off which isn't so pretty anymore- there were literally thousands upon thousands of locks. And knee people have put their look in and lock it they toss the key into the river so their "love can never be unlocked". Some of the locks are just ****** ...

The Palace that we didn't visit dominated the landscape with views over the enormous landscape, entirely crafted by what must have been thousands of men with shovels. Lines of trees and hedges creating vistas through which fountains, sculptures and ornamental lakes could be seen as if at every hour point around a clock face.
We left Versailles after a long walk with a stop for an Ice cream. The little Cafe found on ...
... was quite special and there were few other people around compared to the day scenes in these areas. Next stop was a river cruise along The Seine. We parked our bikes and hopped aboard the boat with the rest of the group, sat down and had some wine as we cruised. This was the moment when the cocktail of being awake for 19 hours, having cycled for the last 6 hours, drinking wine, being in another time zone and in my case, being dosed up on pseudoephedrine really hit us! The moment ...
... blocks away and we had the best meal! We ordered big bowls of rice noodles with half a dozen different chopped vegetables and either shrimp or beef and egg rolls. We talked and ate until we could hold no more! Cory and I walked Anita to her metro stop and made our way home. We truly enjoyed meeting our new friends and hope to stay in touch with them via blogs and emails.
Today we decided to check out something ...
