Kathy B in Paris with Starwood Hotels & Resorts

Kathy went to Paris on a hosted trip with Starwood Hotels & Resorts. She was able to see the three high end Starwood properties throughout the city and wanted to share her experience with you.

This meticulously restored 1928 art deco hotel is perfectly located on George V.  I loved the art deco prints throughout the hallways and in each room. The hotel offers entry level rooms that are very comfortable in size with great beds and several great suite options. The top of the line is an apartment with rooftop terrace offering stunning views all around Paris.  La Scene is a Michelin starred restaurant featuring French cuisine and a unique twist with the kitchen right in the middle of the restaurant. Breakfast, light meals and drinks can be served in the interior courtyard open to the sky. This was my favorite spot for a quick bite. Staying here you would be a short distance to the all the fabulous high end shopping on the Champs Elysees or in the opposite direction you are a short walk to the Seine river and the Bateaux Mouches river cruise dock.

The Westin Paris
Located near the Place Vendome so very close to the Seine River this is an excellent location too.   It is a much larger hotel with very comfortable rooms and great suites. We had dinner in the Winter Garden – and open air (interior courtyard) terrace restaurant. This hotel had the most beautiful room for weddings or special events called the Imperial room. I would highly recommend holding your next international event here. This property is more moderately priced than the Prince de Galles yet still offers excellent service.

W Hotel Opera House
Keeping with the W theme, this small hotel is a little more edgy and artsy than others. It attracts a fun and lively crowd at the bar and restaurant. Take note the rooms start off really small so I recommend staying in a suite here. Located near the opera house, this location is not as ideal as the Westin or Prince de Galles. Personally liked the vibe of this hotel just not the location quite as much.
