I fancy visiting Paris for a short break at some point this year and wondered if anyone could recommend a good hotel and anything else you think is worth doing while I'm over there.
Many thanks :)
I'd definitly recommend the one I stayed in - it's called Splendid Hotel and is literally a 5 minute walk through a park to the foot of the Eiffel tower. Hotel looks over the park and to the tower (obviously if you get a room that faces that way). It's address is 29 Avenue De Tourville, Paris, 75007 if you want to check it out on an online map for location
I booked through www.hotels.com and got a night free too
Is there any particular reason you want to sleep near the Eiffel Tower?
There is lots to do during your stay in Paris in addition to going up the Eiffel Tower.
A far better idea will be to stay at a hotel that is more central, nearer to all the other things you do in Paris. Then you go to the Eiffel Tower and spend half a day or a day going up the tower, wandering through the Trocadero, the Champs de Mars, etc. When you go back to your hotel in central Paris, you can wander through the Latin quarter, the Halles, etc. The Eiffel Tower area is not so interesting in the evening.
Because I think renting a flat in Paris is worth it I would recommend you Lodjee ( http://www.lodjee.com/paris ) to be honest Hotel in Paris especially near the Eiffel Tower are very expensive !
The Marais is a good place to hang out, nice bars, shops and restaurants, probably my favorite. I also like the big market : le marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen - Porte de Clignancourt
And well loads of museums
Here are some links for some help !
Enjoy your trip

while its not in paris, it certainly feels like it..why not stay in the Bellagio In Las Vegas, you are right across the street from the Eiffel Tower In the hotel Paris Las Vegas and you have great service, along with the fountains of bellagio
Just be aware that after dark, the Eiffel Tower area is very dark and quiet with not much to do. There are other areas of Paris that have much more going on unless you have a special need to be in that area....
