So initially I purchased the Sofitel La Defense on Expedia.. but literally every single friend I know from Paris was like that area is off-beat, hard to get a taxi, don't stay there, even though the reviews on Tripadvisor was very positive So I turned to PRICELINE, and tried to shoot for a 5 star hotel in Champs (the only hotel that was available for bidding was the Marriott Champs Elysees), and I bidded up to $300 with no success. Turned my attention to this area, and saw some bidding for this hotel for the same dates and got this hotel at $120. So got this hotel for $120, when regular rates were $282. Doing the math, I saved nearly USD1,000 for 3 nights 2 rooms (not counting tax). So I do pity those who would pay regular rates for this hotel, when you can easily bid a hotel in this area. Again, to show support for the site0, used the PRICELINE links at one o'clock to bid.
