... the shower was cold which didn’t make me feel any better. I could hardly eat any breakfast but I took a
couple of croissants to eat later in the day when I felt a bit better. Got to
stretch funds any chance I get.
I took the open top tour bus. No one else had been on it or wanted to join
me, it was too expensive but my Aunty Jean had bought the ticket for me in
Canada – Thanks Aunty Jean! I sat ...

We ate our lunch on the lawn between the Louvre and Tuileries, feeling very Parisian as so many others were eating their baguettes as well.
Next we caught the Metro to go to the Musee des Egouts de Paris or Paris Sewer Museum!! It was an interesting experience - not an essential visit for a new tourist, but certainly an interesting one. I had read conflicting comments about the smell, but there was hardly any and certainly ...

Surprised that they just let me in without reservations and wearing jeans. I thought id feel weird about dining alone in Paris but I usually just walk in, show one finger and say "une personne" with confidence. Sometimes they say "to eat? Or just a drink".

... We strolled through the building a bit looking at the tall ornate ceilings. Ornate in the way Donald Trump would decorate his living room. So over-the-top in the gold used that it was a bit tacky. But people there had money and lots of it. As we walked out past one of the customer service desk there was a woman with a fan of bills in her hand, waving them at the clerk, with at least one bill I saw being a 500E bill.
Another metro ride and we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Marquis Paris
Just returned from a long weekend in Paris staying in this hotel with three girlfriends. The hotel was just as it is shown on the ParisBy site, and is a lovely cosy, (and I know its a cliche), and romantic hideaway in a lovely quiet street just a few minutes walk from the Champ le Mars gardens which lead you directly under the soaring amazingness of the Effell tower. I know Paris has a reputation as the Romantic destination of the world, and couples flock there in droves hoping to share the dream, of moonlight kisses by the Seine, but anyone who has actually visited knows that reality of the situation can be for from this ideal. Having had this experience I decided my next trip to Paris would be as part of a all girl group, leaving the men and any romantic hopes at home, where they belong. But guess what?, this hotel really was was perfect for couples seeking that romantic retreat, but not so great for a same sex group. The hotel really goes all out to cater for couples, so much so that they just cant get their heads around catering for anyone not requiring tete -a -tete breakfasts on cute little tables for two, or low lit bedrooms with King size beds, floaty voiles , zebra patterened carpets and furry cushions, all very tastefull of course, but definately for the loved up.
We stayed at Le Marquis over New Year 2004/5.
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Le Marquis 4 - 8 March, and it was fantastic!
Enjoyed this small (36?) room hotel in a quiet residential area in 15, near the border of the 7th arrondisement.
My boyfriend and I have just got back from Valentine's weekend at Le Marquis. I have to say that our choice of hotel was quite heavily influenced by TripAdvisor reviews, trusting souls that we are! Well, that and the fact that we got a bargain deal on the net- it would normally be out of our price range.

Located only a few metro stops away from any point of interest, the Hotel Le Marquis was awesome. The staff (especially, Albert) was extremely helpful and accomodating. There is a pastry and meat shop next door and a super market and flower shop across the street. The nearest metro (La Motte Piquette) is a quick 2-3 minute walk away.
Our room (#506) was great. Modern decor (just as pictured on their website at inwoodhotel). The bathroom was simply stunning.
No regrets. Highly recommended.
This is certainly a perfect hotel, the location is excellent, the decor is lovely, the staff very helpful and friendly, I certainly can recommend this hotel.
I stayed at the Le Marquis for two nights beginning on September 11, 2004 and could not have been more satisfied anywhere else.
Le Marquis was absolutely wonderful! If you're tired of the cookie-cutter chain hotel & want a quiet retreat at a modern/stylish hotel, stay here! Location: On a quiet side street near the Eiffel Tower, two blocks away from Metro. Amenities: The room was absolutely gorgeous & the bathroom was seriously the most beautiful bathroom I've ever seen! Didn't dine there or interact with the staff much, but let's just say I looked forward to coming back to the hotel after a long day of sightseeing. The decor is sleek & trendy...highly recommended!
