LBS SEP 2015 Reunion in Paris, France.

paris

First, (Drumroll…) the next reunion, as you already know, is in Paris, France.

Dates are from Thursday, 29th of October to November 1st!

The Chair for this reunion is Anne-Caroline Dispot-Kearney!

========================================

Here are the Hotel Suggestions:

  1. Hotel Sofitel Le Faugbourg :   1323 euros / double room.
  2. Hotel Bedford: 885 euros with view and balcony (last floor)
  3. Hotel les Mathurins : 1020 euros 3 nights double superior

Breakfast not included – 21 and 27 euros – / Nice alternative is to meet up in a traditional French Café.

All Hotels are located in the center, close to Place de la Madeleine, Opéra, the Louvre, Tuileries gardens, Champs Elysées with excellent connections.

A great shopping area also (Printemps Galeries Lafayette..).

– Estimates based on 3 nights 29th October – 1st Nov – based on current discount rates (03/06/2015):

Anne-Caroline’s suggestion is to book through/look at booking.com or similar travel agents as it is difficult to negotiate a rate and secure the bookings without it being a Corporate function.

========================================

Here is the Schedule of the Reunion:

Arrival Thursday 29th October: 

Cheese and Wine party at Anne-Caroline’s place in the evening

Friday night (30th Oct.): several options:

– Classic dinner along the Seine,

– Restaurant on the Eiffel Tour (but early dinner 18h30 to access at reasonable rate with a good view),

–  Café Marly facing Louvre Pyramid,

– Baccarat Chrystal restaurant.

These restaurants are trendy upmarket, but beautiful locations and should leave a memorable souvenir. Worth to do once in Paris.

NB : Need to secure bookings well in advance.

Saturday morning:

Could organize a guided visit of a museum: Louvre / Orsay / Picasso… in English, but needs to be pre-booked

Saturday afternoon: free pendent on wishes (shopping etc.)…

Saturday evening: Typical French brasserie

Sunday:

For those who have not yet made it there: outing to Versailles. Easy train connections.

Otherwise leisurely day in Paris before departure / brunch …

Could also take a leisurely walk through nice locations in Paris.  AC is on her 4th  final year at l’Ecole du Louvre.
