Hotel Fouquet’s Barriere Paris:
Right at the intersection of the Champs-Elysees and Avenue George V, Hotel Fouquet’s Barriere Paris is another great hotel to stay at if you want to attend this year’s Tour de France! Perfect for foodies, a romantic trip, sightseeing and shopping, Hotel Fouquet’s Barriere Paris has it all.
This hotel is basically a 21st century French Palace, tailored to meet the tastes and needs of international guests looking for something new and distinctive. Our favorite part of this hotel, aside from the intimate rooms and extravagant suites, is the interior garden.
In fact, this hotel was constructed around the garden, which makes it a refreshing retreat in such an urban setting.
The Westin Paris:
A quick walk to the Avenue des Champs-Elysees, The Westin Paris is in a perfect location for a weekend getaway of which observing the Tour de France 2009 is a part.
From this hotel, you’ll get exciting views of the Eifel Tower and the Tuileries Gardens.
It’s an ideal location for avid site seers because you are moments away from the Louvre Museum, the Place Vendome, Place de la Concorde and the boutiques of Rue du Faubourg Saint Honore.
The guest rooms have all been newly refurbished and include a traditional Parisian charm intermixed with a contemporary design. This hotel in Paris has 80 suites, featuring separate living rooms and master bedrooms, which are perfect for rest and relaxation.
If you find yourself at loose ends at any part of your stay, you can partake in a chocolate tasting, flower arranging demonstrations or a makeover at the hotel. What a weekend in Paris!
Steps from the Champs Elysees, Hotel Keppler is a luxury boutique hotel in Paris. Perfect for luxury travelers who want an intimate, traditional environment close to the grand finale of the 2009 Tour de France, you won’t find a better hotel than this!
You’ll love the warm sense of intimacy in this 39 room hotel. All of the rooms and suites are works of art, designed by Pierre Yves Rochon (one of the best interior designers in the world). To be honest, the top floor feels more like a private penthouse apartment than a hotel suite.
