The hotel is close to metro stations, high-end shopping, and major businesses
Hotel Champlain is located in Paris' 17th arrondissement, home to a number of cafes and restaurants, as well as corporate offices and stores. The area is busy during the day, but it's far from bars and bistros for the evening. Though there are few major attractions in the immediate vicinity, the hotel is within minutes of several major metro lines. Gare Saint-Lazare is also within a few blocks on the hotel, which also overlooks the main tracks leading to the station.
Sitting on the outskirts of central Paris and along the main tracks to Gare Saint-Lazare, the 51-room Hotel Champlain is a minimally decorated boutique that serves as little more than convenient sleeping quarters. Rooms are cramped and have limited storage, but furniture is smartly placed with shelving built in to the closets, and there are mirrors hanging throughout. The hotel itself doesn't offer a gym or business center, but there is a quality breakfast buffet and the location is near several metro lines.
