Prime location near the Golden Triangle, just three blocks from the Champs-Elysees
Located in the 8th arrondissement and close to Champs Elysees, the Bradford sits at the center of Paris fashion, business, and tourism. Within walking distance are a number of restaurants (and a delicious bakery), as well as Paris's shopping district on avenue Montaigne and the Faubourg Saint Honore. It's also close to several Paris museums and galleries including the Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay, the Grand Palais and the Eiffel Tower.
The Bradford Elysees -- part of the Astotel group, with 17 hotels in Paris -- is an attractive boutique hotel offering Parisian elegance and good value. Aptly named for its close proximity to Champs Elysees (three blocks away), it's close to tons of good restaurants, bars, and shopping, yet still quiet due to its location on the quaint Rue St. Phillipe. The hotel was originally built as a private residence, and it's quite charming. The rooms are individually decorated in old Parisian style, and they're updated and modern with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and iPod docks (ask for a room on the sixth floor for possible views of the Eiffel Tower). The only thing missing is a restaurant -- there's only breakfast, and it comes at a high cost. But most guests don't mind since there are tons of options right nearby.
