Money-Saving Tips for Exploring Paris
The Charlotte Observer
July 5, 2004



"Don't make the mistake of rounding off your euros. The current exchange rate is $1.20 to one euro, meaning a hotel room priced at 100 euros will cost $120. Still, there are ways of getting the most for your money. Here's a few tips:
It's still possible to find a decent double room in a well-located two-star hotel for under $100 a night, but it likely won't have air conditioning or an elevator. Rooms with AC start around $150. It never hurts to ask for a discount, especially during slower periods. Word-of-mouth is the best way to find the hotel that's right for you and your budget. Useful Web sites are www.parishotels.com and www.paris.org which lets you search by location and number of stars and includes comments from travelers. See also www.tripadvisor.com."
