I had a recent two night stay at the Westin Paris Vendome during the recent G20 meetings. The hotel is in a great location right off of Place Vendome and by the Jardin des Tuileries and a very short walk from the Louvre. The hotel is very elegant and not cheap even by Parisian standards (at least during this time period). Two minor complaints about the hotel: tiny room (even by European standards) and paper thin walls. You can hear everything.... even a conversation not with raised voices. Internet was approx 19 Euros a day, but that's pretty common for Paris I think in the big chain hotels. I usually prefer the Intercontinental Grand in Paris but it's always good to try new places. The hotel ballroom was amazing, and reminded me of the Versailles palace. I recommend this hotel to people.
