Hotel Eiffel Segur
Downtown Paris hotel with Eiffel Tower views
The modern, 3-star Hotel Eiffel Segur is perfectly poised between Les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower – you can walk to both in under 20 minutes. Les Invalides, which houses Napoleon Bonaparte's tomb, also has a museum devoted to French military history.
It's a scenic half-hour walk, passing over the Seine, to the Trocadéro Gardens, where the World's Fair was held in 1867 and 1878. It's the perfect spot to photograph the Eiffel Tower. A 20-minute stroll lets you smell the roses in the sculpture garden of the Rodin Museum.
A trendy lobby, accented with pale stacked stone, palms, and orchids, is a pretty spot in which to check your e-mail via the free WiFi, available throughout the hotel. A breakfast room and patio provide some extra space.
Contemporary rooms are modern with clean lines, hardwood floors, and natural fabrics. Flat-screen TVs are a bonus, and the comfy beds ensure a good night's sleep. Some guestrooms have Eiffel Tower views.
