In the Tower's shadow
Freshly updated Derby Alma places you steps from the Eiffel Tower and a block from the Seine in Paris's visitor-friendly 7th arrondissement. It's the ideal spot for sightseeing, and Pont de l'Alma gives you easy access to the RER and Bateaux Mouches cruise boats.
Although the area is quiet, it is has plenty of great restaurants – including a strip of gourmet joints along Rue Cler, a 5-minute walk. You can take a riverside stroll to the military museum at Les Invalides, or carry on to Musée d'Orsay with its Impressionist collections.
A generous breakfast buffet tempts guests each day: you'll have bacon, omelets, and French cheeses as well as fresh croissants and baguettes. In the evening, the bar is a cozy spot to unwind. Concierge services and free WiFi throughout make it even easier to relax.
Recently upgraded guestrooms feature cool tech perks like iPod docks and flat-screen TVs with satellite channels. Minibars and welcome trays are a nice touch. You can enjoy a long, hot soak in the bath while you wait for your room service.
