West-End Hotel, Paris

For our entire Europe trip, my husband made all the arrangements, and he was very kind to have us stay right off the Champs Elysees for some fabulous shopping while in Paris. Being that we have small children, this was not a museum trip... we went to the top of the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, but other than that pretty much just walked around and enjoyed the sights, looked for play areas, shopped, and ate! We did go to Notre Dame, but the line was way too long for the patience of our crew.

So we were booked at the Claridge Hotel, which is right around the corner from Laduree, but the first two nights there was a problem and they took us the 5 minute walk to a same-class hotel, the West-End. At first I was disappointed, but not after seeing the rooms! Here are some pictures - we had two triples that connect to each other. The Claridge is lovely also and I have some nice snaps from those rooms also.

Another good feature of the West-End is that when you step out the front door and look to your right, you are looking directly at the Louis Vuitton store on Avenue Montaigne. I was in that store four times, so that was handy. More on that coming up.
