Agoda.com lines up fantastic late-winter hotel recommendations in Paris, France
SINGAPORE (January 22, 2014)
Agoda.com, one of Asia’s leading hotel booking sites and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), has prepared an exciting list of hotels in Paris, France, which provide superb accommodation options for travelers wishing to experience one of Europe’s most vibrant cities.
During the winter months, Paris can get cold, rainy and generally unpleasant, but by February, Parisians – with their love of outdoor cafes, strolls through historic parks, and boisterous cultural celebrations – are itching for spring to arrive. This makes February the perfect time to visit, avoiding the large crowds in spring and muggy heat of summer, but well in time to enjoy all the city has to offer in the mild winter climate.
Beyond its historic neighborhoods and iconic attractions like the Eiffel Tower and Louvre Museum, Paris offers a variety of festivals and events for visitors to experience in the lead up to spring. The city’s famous Winter Sales offer huge discounts in shops across the city, and there are plenty of museums, concerts and attractions with special exhibitions and shows. Naturally, one can’t talk about Paris in February without mentioning Valentine’s Day – romance and love have long been identified with the French capital.
To make a February visit to Paris most memorable, Agoda.com is recommending a fantastic list of hotels. Not only does each one offer a lovely stay and Agoda.com’s Best Price Guarantee, but each also boasts a spa, sauna or gym, the perfect way to unwind after a long day of sightseeing.
