    A quick dip in the Seine to freshen up and voila!

    Remarkable they have a view of the Eiffel tower. Some hotels by the beach don’t honestly have a beach front view. They’ve got a window where if you stand on a step stool, look from an angle, you can maybe see the beach. So hey. Lucky on the view.

    I call it the French Hollywood miracle. In Paris every window (ever single one) has a view of the Eiffel Tower, except if you are there for real.

    it’s of course not possible to have a view of the front of Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower from the same window – but hey, it’s a comic ;)

    @fairportfan2, the French aren’t so bad at all (any more), we only got the famous French rude attitude in one place when we visited Paris for 3 whole weeks last summer. We’re not American though, suppose you ppl might get another attitude…

    There’s more than one hotel in Paris. I’m pretty sure.

    Not everybody loved the Eiffel Tower when it was built — there were even organized protests. Guy de Maupassant ate lunch in the Eiffel Tower’s restaurant every day, because it was the only place in Paris where he could be sure that he wouldn’t see the tower.

    NS – I’m not sure about that view. It looks like some sort of drawing to me.

    When I was in Paris…our hotel had a teeny tiny view of the Eiffel Tower! I was hoping she would get to the hotel and the view would be wonderful. I didn’t get it until I got out of the underground and turned around and was standing SMACK in front of Notre Dame. It gave me goose bumps!!!

    My hotel from my school trip had a wonderful view of the Arc de Triomphe if I looked to the right from the balcony. Loved it.

    The tower went up because steel girders became commercially available and it was physically possible. They could have made a skyscraper and by now it would have been torn down as dated. But an observation tower never goes out of date. And they don’t allow anything to be built towering over it.

    Now doesn’t she feel silly for wasting all that time worrying about what to pack?
