So apparently I’m not writing reviews in any type of order for this trip, since Paris was our last stop. But I loved this hotel the most and was excited to get this post up.
Our favorite hotel of the trip was the Radisson Blu Le Dokhan’s Hotel, Paris, Trocadero. The hotel is made up of 41 rooms and four suites, all elaborately decorated.
We used 50,000 Club Carlson points to book our room for two nights. It was about a 60 Euro cab ride from the airport to the hotel.
Before it was a hotel, it was a single residence owned by Le Dokhan. All the furniture and decorations currently in the hotel was purchased for the hotel when it opened or were bought from antique shops. The room we received for our award night was the ‘Classic’ room, the smallest of all Le Dokhan’s rooms. Our room couldn’t have been more than 200 square feet, but it was beautifully decorated.
Each of our three rooms had different fabrics, but were fairly similar in regards to everything else. We each had a balcony with big French doors that opened up. Our room was so small though that the doors wouldn’t quite open all the way without hitting the bed. The bathroom was also really small, but the Villain and I are used to stepping around each other in a tiny bathroom luckily.
There is a small champagne bar on the first floor, which is apparently the oldest in the city. Glass of champagne were pretty steep, starting at over 10 Euro a glass, so we didn’t try any.
The evening concierge at our hotel was fantastic. He gave us excellent dinner recommendations both nights. The first night we ate at Cafe Poincare, which our concierge told us got fresh food from the market and then menu changed everyday. I had the creamy onion soup, which was quite possibly the best bowl of soup I’ve ever had. The French know how to eat! The second night we ate at an Italian restaurant he recommended, which we all thought was a little weird at first to eat Italian food in France, but it was delicious. I had a goat cheese and walnut pasta. Unfortunately I didn’t get many pics of my food, but we ate so well every single day of our trip.
This hotel was only about a five to ten minute walk to Eiffel Tower. We went back our final night to watch the light show, which happens on the hour every hour.
It was also really close to a couple of different metro stations, which made it easy to get around Paris.
We did not eat at the hotel, but breakfast was available starting at 20 Euro for pastries or 30 Euro for a hot breakfast. There was also free Internet in the hotel, which was always nice to be able to check our phones since we had them on airplane mode the whole week.
Overall, this was a fantastic hotel and a great use of 50,000 Club Carlson points. Rates start at $250, so our value was over $1,500 for three rooms for two nights.
