... past it. Apparently to encourage people to use the bridge King Henry IV invited 300 friends to a party at the bridge and then got a sculptor to construct everyones face and decorate the bridge with them. It's the olden days equivalent of having a drunk photo of yourself at a party floating around the internet forever. After the tour we did a tour of our own up to the Arc de Triomphe. Erin managed to track down the same stand she got crepes from over 4 years ...
... cannons would shoot water about 40 metres down the pond - there was always a bit of mist drift associated with this one and it ended up getting lots of people wet.
The tower - as it got gradually darker the lights on the tower came on and it changed the way that it looked in the darkening sky. Lots of subtle changes which had to be photographed.
The water / tower sellers - there's hundreds of guys flogging bottled water and small (or large) cast ...

Outside in the terminal area, I quickly found the booth that sells the Paris Museum Pass, and was impressed that the girl working there could speak French, English, Spanish and Arabic (according to the tag she was wearing). She was also able to sell me a ticket for the RER and Metro (€11.30, exactly as I had noted on my Itinerary).
From there I went up an escalator to find the ...
... Musee de Louvre. The winds and cloudy skies seemed nice in comparison to Texas heat. By the way, we are delighted to partially escape the notorious Texas summer. Luckily, we had the foresight to pack an umbrella, Jenna's London Fog, and Ramsey’s hooded jacket. What I did not consider was selected shoes (flats) for the day.
Mostly, we enjoy walking to our destinations as opposed to riding the Metro. Yes, the Metro is a major time-saver, but walking amongst the ...

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!
