Belinda's Paris Info

From Belinda:

I will be traveling on the evening of the 3rd arriving in Paris on the 4th and leaving on the 9th. Bonnie and her family will be coming in on the same flight (AA 120 from JFK to CDG) but leaving on the 8th. I noticed that it was difficult to get a room on the 9th of October for some reason (must be something exciting happening on the 10th) so if you want to stay longer I suggest coming in a few days earlier.

The plan is to have a birthday party at the Jules Verne on the 6th or the 7th but we have not had final confirmation on which day yet.

As far as hotels go, I suggest the area of Saint Germain Des Pres (6th arrondissement) Here are a few possibilities:

Le Regent - this is where we are currently booked.

Hotel Du Danube this is a little cheaper than Le Regent but also very nice and just around the corner.

Hotel Dauphine St Germain - I haven't stayed here but it looks good and it's close to the other two.

If you want to look at other alternatives, I suggest going to france-hotel-guide.com and searching in the 5th or 6th arrondissements for a 3 star hotel. Another useful site is http://www.pariserve.com/saint-germain.htm. Some of the Hotels you can book online but others you can do via email.

I did find an apart'hotel in the neighborhood but I have not ever stayed there so can't vouch for it. It's pretty close to the hotels above so I can say it's a lovely area. If you want a kitchen, this might be an

Hope this gives you all a good start. It will be fabulous if you can join us! Call or email if you need help or have any questions.

I'd also like to add that my parents usually recommend the Hotel Saint Louis, and I think Sophie and John stayed there.
