Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel

By the Seine, opposite the Trocadéro, Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel offers an unparalleled view of the Eiffel Tower, just 180 m away from the hotel balconies. And all around, a host of culinary and cultural attractions await. Welcomer Monica Castaneda has some hot tips for her visitors.

Monica likes spending time at the Brasserie Suffren, a favorite local meeting place.
In warmer weather she prefers a picnic on the Champs de Mars. "Where" and "le Figaroscope" are good sources of information, but colleagues and customers are even better:
"They are out and about, and tell us what's happening". The question she is most often asked? Do you sell tickets for the Eiffel Tower?" (No, buy them there, or on the website). " And the weirdest question ever?
“"Believe it or not - it was 'where is the Eiffel Tower?' - when we're sitting right at the foot of the tower!"

Bateaux-Mouches
Monica Castaneda enjoys seeing Paris from the river Seine, especially at night, "when Paris is again the city of light" - and many would agree. It's always worth taking a cruise in a 'bateau-mouche', even for long-time local residents.

Trocadéro
Monica Castaneda suggests taking the Pont d'Iéna over the Seine to explore the Trocadéro gardens, visit the Architecture and Heritage Center and Naval Museum, and of course get a perfect view of the masterwork of Gustave Eiffel.

Poilâne
French bread is much more than the baguette... This bakery has enjoyed success with its leavened bread recipe since 1932. The bread is made from stone-milled Poilâne flour and Guérande salt, then baked in a wood-fire oven.
