Climbing the Eiffel Tower will grant one an overview of the French capital but to truly experience Paris, our hotel guests need to get down into its boulevards, avenues and cobbled lanes for the real experience. From your hotel in Paris, it's fairly easy to get around the city's 20 distinctive arrondissments (neighborhoods) on the Metro or by taxi.
French cuisine is legendary and concierges at the Marriott hotels in Paris are perfect for restaurant recommendations – or else take note of places crowded with locals.
The French take art seriously and the Musée d'Orsay and the Louvre house incredible collections. The instantly recognisable Arc de Triomphe presides at the end of the beautiful tree-lined Champs-Elysées. Notre Dame stands on an island (Ile de la Cité ) in the Seine River. Grand departments stores like Printemps and Galeries Lafayette will tempt you with sumptuous French wares. Guests of our Paris Marriott Hotels will be delighted and amazed.
It's the detail that make Paris so completely compelling: the geraniums in window boxes framed by wooden shutters, the curling art nouveau signs for the Metro, exquisitely prepared hors d'œuvres and petits fours. These imaginative aesthetics and thoughtful designs give Paris a richness and beauty found nowhere else.
