... to find a Starbucks! Ola, my roommate from Poland had spent a month in Paris in the summer which actually ended up being a huge help, because she was familiar with the area and knew where most things were. Once we sat and I got my venti non-fat Chai latte, we headed over to Galaries de Lafayette which is a huge department store type spot, with some of the most expensive stores in the world (Gucci, Prada, etc)! Because everything closes so early ...
... front to dance with them, he was so cute! He can now tell everyone he danced in front of a crowd on the Champs Elysee. We walked up to the Arc De Triomphe and a young guy tried the ring scam on Cameron, it was a ********** attempt and I can't believe anyone would still fall for it, who would give money to a stranger for a ring they found on the ground, strange! After our massive walk we opted for a taxi back to Pont Neuf. Back to the apartment and crashed for the ...
... mad rush we just made it down in time. I later googled how many stairs apparently it is 341 steps. The next day was a free day in Paris so myself and a few others decided to do a hop on hop off but in the city to make the most of our time there. It was a great way to get. Around and see Paris and I was satisfied that I saw most thing I wanted to see. After that we had lunch and I then decided I would head back to the hotel for a rest (still feeling really ******, this contiki cough ...
... drinks service was very slow....you had to line up for a drink. I reckon probably 50% of the 300 people in our area - Triomphe were Aussies.
The TdF rolled in a little late, then spun around the circuit for a few laps, then it was all over. By the time the presentations were on it was dark. The Arc de Triomphe was a spectacular back drop for a lightshow as part the presentation ceremony.
Then the masses departed........until next year.
... br> Conclusion:
Paris was wonderful. It's a city that's loved by people around the world because it's romantic and beautiful with delicious food, historic buildings, famous art, walkable streets and much more. It's the city of light, and although I find that it's easy for Paris to be bit of a cliche, it was still a lovely end to our backpacking trip. It was nice to just wander around and soak up the city, not to mention staying in a nice hotel was a bit of a luxury. And overall ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Westminster Paris
Stayed at the Westminster Hotel in Paris 25th-30th March 2004. This hotel is beside Place Vendome, a fantastic location, within easy walking distance of many Paris landmarks & numerous metro stations. The hotel itself was beautiful with friendly helpful staff.
Absolutely the most charming and gracious staff. Our room & bath were wonderful. Balcony and window in bath. Benjamin (doorman) Benjamin and Jean Charles (Concierce) were fantastick. So helpful. Room Service also great. Will always stay at Westminster while in Paris.
Had the pleasure of staying at the Westminster for our honeymoon in November. At first we were given a tiny room, but asked to be upgraded.
This was done without question, to a superior room, which was an excellent size. The quality of furnishings in the hotel is only matched by the location, minutes from the opera, a superb setting. Made the mistake of thinking we had bed and breakfast rate which we did not. Had a very average breakfast on two occasions at a coat of £40 per day!!!
That apart a most enjoyable stay.
Fab Location, lovely, quiet room
My sister and I stayed here for a week in December. This is the third time I have been to Paris, and this is most definitely the best location for visitors. You are close to a major Metro (subway) stop, the 2 main department stores in Paris, and all of the central city attractions are within walking distance. The room was moderately sized, clean and very, very quiet. I do suspect that they give the guests who book online (i.e. cheaper rooms) less luxurious rooms (when we checked in, the front desk person called someone to inquire as to what room to put us in, and the only word I understood was "Expedia"), but our room was quite pleasant and the staff was polite.
Stayed at the Hotel Westminster for a week in October of 2003. The hotel has a great location near the Opera, where one can walk to practically everywhere in Paris. The room we had was on the small side, however it really wasn't a concern for us, besides who heads to Paris (or anywhere) to sit inside a hotel room all day? In any event, the room was very nice and comfortable (with a huge bathroom). The staff was attentive, even allowing us to check in at 9 am on a sunday. Hotel bar seemed stuffy at first glance, but we really ended up enjoying the live entertainment.
The Paris hotel I would love to love.
I have stayed at the Westminster 4 times (under 2 different owners) in the last 20 years the latest being November 2003. This is spread among 30 or so stops in Paris so I have quite a bit of Parisian hotel experience. Every time I have regretted staying there. With its beauty, charm and location this should be the perfect Paris hotel but one vital ingredient is missing. Hospitality! Maybe it was the low Internet rate I paid this time that made them treat me like a bumpkin. If you dont want people to book these rates you should not offer them.............. but it doesnt explain my other 3 stays.
Just returned from spending a week at Hotel Westminister in October, 2003. Booked the trip through Expedia and was excited staying at a 4-star hotel. The hotel is located in a very safe and upscale part of Paris. Transportation to other parts of Paris is also very easy as the Metro Station is less than a block away. Service in the hotel is average and the staff is very pleasant toward their guests. The rooms are clean and well kept. However, the rooms are TINY. Luckily my wife and I are not claustrophobic!! The full size bed takes up most of the space of the room leaving very little walking area. Given a choice, I probably would not stay at this hotel again.
I stayed at the Westminster Hotel for six nights in June 2003. The hotel was attractive and well-located. While the room was small, it was nicely decorated. However, the service was terrible. We only sporadically received supplies such as soap, toilet paper, etc.
I just returned from Paris and stayed at the Hotel Westminster. It is now one of my favorite hotels in a city of fabulous hotels. I was travelling alone and felt very secure, my main concern. The staff, service and housekeeping were all 5 star and the location is perfect for sightseeing. I can't wait to return and will recommend The Westminster to any visitor to Paris. JK, Boston
We got a fantastic deal on the Westminster Opera through Tripadvisor. The hotel was beautiful- 4 star at a 2 star price....But then we were moved to their sister hotel the Warwick. We were quite dubious about this, but we kicked up a fuss about the inconvenience, got an upgrade and had an amazing time in their Prestige Suite with views of the Eifell Tower. Internet bookings are definitely worth it!We later discovered that we had managed to get a room that was priced from 600 euros a night for 150!
