My quest comes to an end...

... some coffee and read my book then walked to Ponts de l'Archeveche and sat by the Seine looking at Cathedral Notre Dame and read some more. Walked home through the Marais district slowly and window shopped along the way. LOVE window shopping :)) I got home and was going to head back out for a sit down dinner but decided on a picnic at the Eiffel Tower instead. Bought the yummyiest sandwich and brownie from a Brasserie and a couple beers and made my way to the metro. Beautiful ...

Frog Legs, snails and friends

A travel blog entry by dawn.


... the first time I had been introduced to them was by my dear, dear friend Luis in St. Thomas years ago. A lone lady sat beside me and we started talking. She had moved here alone from Belgium 5 years ago. She explained the benefits and challenges of such a move to me, since these were already questions bouncing around my head, she was a valuable source of information. The snails arrived still in the shell! Whenever I have previously consumed them, they were not in the shells. I ...

Visit to Giverny and Musée de Vernon

... an hour in precious time. We found a car park only to find that although we didn't have to pay, we had to display a disque. I found some policemen who said not to worry. After walking for about half an hour we couldn't find the gallery and the local shop keepers that I asked directions from didn't know where the gallery was. However I had seen the tourists bureau on my search to find out about the disque so walked back to the tourist office. There we found we had been ...

A return to the city of lights.....

... t involved there.

It was after 14:00 by this time and I was getting a bit hungry, but I was resolved to finish my touring first. I next went to the De Gaulle Historial, which was in another wing of the Museum (and then downstairs). It was nicely arranged in a circular fashion and chronologically, with small rooms branching off to the sides with more detailed descriptions of various time periods. There was also a round theatre in the centre, which ...

... for the Eurostar train, which will take us through the Channel onto Paris. I am excited but still nervous... I think I will be until we've met our director and driver... On the way, we met the people sitting behind us - Greg & Cathy from QLD and their friend Carol. I think Cathy might be deaf - she sounds as though she is when she speaks...

10:30 - 2:00 (1:00pm UK time - an hour ahead here...) Our journey on the Eurostar was good. We were seated across from a couple (from ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Paris La Defense

    Christmas Eve at the Hilton


    My boyfriend at the time and I were backpacking around the U.K. last winter and decided to go to Paris for Christmas. As a gift, my father bought us two nights at this property with traveler points--Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

    Nothing memorable!


    In general, I can't really say anything about this hotel. It was simply multiple factors in combination which made my stay here "blah"! I was here on business attending a conference at the CNIT. I can't imagine why any tourist would book this hotel. In general, the whole served my purpose and I can't fault anything specific. On the other hand, I found the hotel extremely depressing and the location as well as general architecture don't do much to create any kind of enjoyable atmosphere. I did like being able to walk to the CNIT (without going outside) in 1 minute. On the other hand, being at a conference for two days, I wouldn't have come outside were I not proactive about it. The hotel is clean, and modern but nothing spectacular. The rooms are quite large and I can agree with other reviewers that you want looking to the outside versus the ones looking into the "mall". The bar is OK as well and as also already mentioned usually hopping due to lack of other things to do in the area. On a positive note, the staff was extremely friendly and I did really enjoy this. So, in summary a very average, business-oriented hotel I really can't recommend. If you have no other choice, well then chalk this one off as a non-memorable experience.

    Great hotel but dissapointed with the area....


    We visited Paris August 19 2005, we stayed at this

    Hotel for 2 nights and was surprised with the friendly

    and very helpful people working there.The rooms were

    big and confortable everything was clean and nice.

    The only thing which was a surprise for us was the time that the mall and all the restaurants was closing

    20.00hrs in the evening..!!!!!! Our first day was

    terrible cause we couldn't find anything to eat or

    do after 20.00 hrs so we went to the hotel and ordered

    there....The metro was just outside the hotel which

    we used to get around ..very quick and fast.

    I recommend it to all even if you have kids like me

    The Hilton La Defense


    We stayed at the Hilton for 3 nights (4 days).

    Different and Peaceful


    Stayed here for a conference . Its very weird staying in a hotel with in a covered center.

    The room was the norm hilton offer, clean and standard. It was so nice to get a good nights sleep as it is no near any main roads.

    Room service varied on quality each night but was ok. Staff friendly enough as I do not speak French.

    The bar food was ok too, and not that expensive. I was here on business and preferred this to the hustle and bustle of a Paris hotel location.

    Not my cup of tea...


    This hotel is very convenient to the La Défense area and its large business district. Also on the 'A' RER line and Metro stop 'La Défense.'

    Very practical


    Both the location and the facilities of the recently re-furbished La Défense Hilton show that it is clearly aimed squarely at business travellers. However, the many excellent public transport links (Metro, two different networks of commuter trains, buses and even trams) that come together literally underneath the hotel mean that tourists should also consider this location if a keen price is offered.

    The Hilton is literally a building within a building (the iconic CNIT, a triangular 1950s exhibition hall re-developed into shops & offices - and a hotel), so half the rooms look out across the Parvis de la Défence (with oblique views of the Grande Arche) and half the rooms look inwards across the atrium. Outward-facing 'Relaxation' rooms are to be favoured.

    OK for using Hilton points


    We stayed here after Xmas 2003 and it was a good choice considering that we used our Hilton points to stay here for free. I typically stay at 5 star hotels in Asia so have fairly high standards. We stayed at a local hotel in the Paris suburbs later on and by comparison, this was 5 stars! The hotel was very hard to find because it is literally in the convention center (CNIT). Service was very good, but the place was deserted because this is primarily a business hotel and we were there during the holidays. The breakfast buffet was good, but quite pricey for 26 Euros per person. Because the Metro station is right there, it was very convenient to get around and you don't even need to switch trains to get to the city center (the Louvre). The beds were quite comfortable and the rooms are comfortable although somewhat small (although probably average for Europe). It is also strange to have your view being the inside of the convention center (no outside view). Overall a good experience.

    Great conferencing location


    If you are attending a conference in CNIT then this is the play to stay no questions asked! The hotel is right within the convention centre itself and in terms of practicality couldn't be better located. The relaxation rooms are also a plus with great business facilities but also with a relaxing touch in terms of lighting and decor. Make sure to book in advance in order to get good rates as prices tend to be on the high side if you leave it to the last minute.
