Seeking an ideal spot in Paris to erect his Arc de Triomphe, Napoleon settled on the northwest corner where 12 grand avenues converge. Three short blocks from this showpiece intersection, the Mon Hôtel is slashing summer rates by 45%.
Visits July 15 - Sept. 4 are $217 per night (€169), including taxes. Book through Perfect Escapes and receive these exclusive perks:
Guests get access to the on-site fitness room and Turkish hammam steam bath. Lonely Planet calls the hotel "The Mac of the Paris hotel world" and a "sleek boutique property" of "contemporary design." With fewer than 40 rooms, the intimate hotel fits right in among the stately homes and embassies of this upscale quarter.
Visitors can take half a turn around the Arc de Triomphe's bustling traffic circle to reach the Champs-Élysées. Follow the avenue southeast, past popular shops and luxury fashion houses, to eventually reach the gardens and galleries of the Louvre.
Also available: Springtime stays are $255 per night (€199) on April 13, 20 and 23-30, including the same benefits.
This deal is not available on: July 18-21, 25-28.
Update (April 5, 8am): Please note, April 13 has now sold out.
