Looking for an excuse to plan a trip to Paris? Here are a few:
- Super swank hotel Le Meurice is offering a "Parisian Package", that includes several culinary perks, including a champagne toast on arrival and dinner for two at restaurant Le Dali, helmed by three-Michelin star Chef Yannick Alleno. That's in addition to a few goodies of the non-foodie variety (including two manicures at the spa), and the rate is 805 Euro/night, double occupancy. The package runs through December 31st, 2011, but you can't book it online. Call for details: +33 1 44 58 10 09.
- On the more affordable side of things, Radisson Blu Le Dokhan's hotel, home to the city's first champagne bar, and its sister property Le Metropolitan are offering 10% off of all three-night stays that include a Saturday. Rates start at 201 Euro/night, and the offer runs through through August 31, 2011.
- In other Paris hotel news, Hotel le Bristol has a very handy blog run by its oh-so-in-the-know concierge team. The restaurant section is worth checking out for splurge meals while you're in town. Each post is written in French and in English, so scroll down until you see words you can parse.
