Outstanding location a block from the Champs Elysees
The Hotel Pershing Hall has a fantastic location within walking distance of the Champs Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, Tuileries Gardens, and the Grand Palais. Boasting a historic spot along the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore, the area is known as being one of the most fashionable streets in the world thanks to the presence of major fashion names such as Hermes and Lanvin. If this isn't enough to satiate a shopping urge, the hotel is also walking distance to Avenue Montaigne and Champs Elysees for additional exclusive shops. There are two subway stops within two long blocks from the hotel.
Paris is known as the "City of Light," the most romantic city in the world, the art and fashion capital of the world -- no wonder it is also the most visited. As France's capital, Paris boasts a plethora of museums, monuments, and astounding examples of architecture, ranging from the iconic Eiffel Tower, built in 1889, to the Gothic-style Notre Dame Cathedral, dating back to the Middle Ages. Visitors often stroll along the Seine to take in the many sites, or walk down the Champs Elysees, lined by high-end shops and crowned by the Arc de Triomphe.
Hotel Pershing Hall is located in the heart of the Golden Triangle. This beautiful 18th century building is home to the trendy Restaurant Pershing and a popular lounge. An indoor courtyard with retractable roof and vertical garden is a highlight here, along with a small fitness center and spa. While there are some great freebies -- including breakfast, Wi-Fi, and bottled water -- rooms at the lower floors experience significant noise from the bar and lounge downstairs. Rooms are stylish and sleek, and bathrooms have walk-in showers (some have soaking tubs), but some guests complain that the price point is high for the quality of rooms and service.
