A Tale of Two Hotel Openings : Partied or Pampered

A Tale of Two Hotel Openings : Partied or Pampered

@PreteMoiParisLast September, yes I know, nearly a year ago (I’m a bad blogger) in 2013, I was invited to the hotel opening for the new Sofitel Arc de Triomphe in the 8th district of Paris. And this past June I went to a press presentation of the newly renovated Mercure Montmartre in the 18th.

I thought it would be interesting to compare the two hotel openings and how they went about promoting their hotel.

High Tea at Le Meurice : Pastries of Opulence

But I don’t care at this point, the Perchoir Marais suits me just fine, and the only time of year I really want to be on a rooftop terrace is in the Summer (or early Fall I suppose).
