After being closed two and one half years for extensive renovations, Hotel Balzac in Paris reopened on July 16. With a great location near the Etoile, just off the Champs Elysees, this looks to be a stunning property. Fully air conditioned with duvet bedding and non-smoking rooms available, the hotel offers butlers and 24 hour concierge service. In addition, the hotel hosts the three-star Michelin-rated restaurant Pierre Gagnaire.
With just 13 suites and 57 rooms, this five-star luxury boutique hotel is a promising possibility for upscale visitors to Paris. One of the top floor suites has an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower. Outstanding introductory rates are in place for the rest of 2007, as low as 350€ double occupancy including continental breakfast and available upgrades upon check-in. Ask your travel agent to book the exclusive JDB rates.
