Not only is the City of Lights and romance, but Paris is also the city of amazing food, friendly people and pet friendly places! This April, we boarded into our first international trip. As French Bulldogs we are, we couldn't be more excited to step on our motherland.
We opted to split our 4-night stay into 4 of the absolutely stunning 5 Star properties from
B Signature Hotels Group: Hotel Vernet, Hotel Montalembert, Hotel Bel Ami and Hotel De Sers. They were all located at the best spots of Paris, exactly where you want to be!
As soon as we landed in Paris, we headed over to Hotel Vernet, located steps away from the Arc De Triomphe and Champs-Elysees. We couldn't expect a better welcome. As soon as we stepped in, the front desk staff recognized and greeted us with a very warm welcome. Once we got into our room, we were impressed with the legendary and true Haussmann style with a contemporary twist. We had a typical Parisian balcony where we could step out and admire the beautiful and cozy street the hotel is located at. Also not to be missed is The V Restaurant, with an impressive stained glass dome designed by Mr. Eiffel himself. I can't forget to mention the Hotel staff had prepared and placed in our room pup beds, bowls, treats and toys, as well as a booklet (with our faces on the cover) with pet-friendly info about dog spas, restaurants, parks and boutiques. How sweet is that!?
On day 2, we stayed at the beautiful Hotel Montalembert. Located in the heart of Saint Germain Des Pres, 10-minute walk from Musee Du Louvre and Jardin Des Tuileries. Steps from the very famous and oldest cafe in Paris, Cafe de Flore. Once again, a fantastic welcome from the extremely friendly staff. Right after checking in, we met the Digital Communication Director from B Signature Hotels, who stopped by to meet and photograph us for their Social Media channels.
On day 3, our stop was Hotel Bel Ami, also located in Saint Germain Des Pres. With a very warm welcome, once again we were stunned by the hospitality of the staff. Bel Ami has recently been recently renovated with super chic decor. Our accommodations were at the top floor, with a 180-degree view of the very charming neighborhood. They even decorated our room with balloons and super comfy dog beds. We hung out at the bar for a bit and headed to explore more of the city. This neighborhood is filled with restaurants, cafes and bakeries. So charming!
Our last night in Paris couldn't be any more special, thanks to the luxurious Hotel De Sers, a flamboyant symbol of the classic French style. We were given the best room in the hotel, with a large balcony facing nothing less than the iconic Eiffel Tower! Impressive! We enjoyed watching the spectacular light display show of the tower every hour at night from our balcony. Wow!
We loved the idea of splitting our stay between these top of quality hotels. It made easier for us to explore different neighborhoods, and get to visit the best of Paris. A huge thanks to B Signature Hotels Group, for your hospitality, professionalism and friendly staff. We absolutely recommend these hotels for your next visit to Paris, if you want to experience the best stay in the City of Lights!
