A Female-friendly Paris Hotel
Phyllis Stoller is the President
of the Women's Travel Club (email@example.com),
an international, Florida-based company offering trips designed by and
for women. She knows her stuff and was recently interviewed by Travel
and Leisure Magazine on the subject of women's safety in hotels. We asked
this savvy travel expert for her choice of a women-friendly hotel in Paris.
I recommend the Left Bank's Hotel Littre. It fits our company's parameters for the appropriate city hotel for women.
It is clean, comfortable and some of the rooms even have hairdryers in the wall. It is safe. The concierge desk is located near the front entrance and doors are locked after hours. The hotel has less than 100 rooms, only one set of stairs and one elevator, both visible from the front desk.
Breakfast tables are placed close enough to each other so that you can meet other travellers.
There are safes in most rooms and a front desk manager who really cares about his guests and also speaks excellent English.
The street has traffic with both stores and restaurants open at night (not noisy but plenty of street life which is reassuring in the evening). If you prefer to picnic as I do, there are plenty of places to buy wine, bread, cheese, etc.
Hotel Littre is beautifully located - one half block from public transportation which includes Montparnasse Train Station, Metro and buses.
There is room service now. Last year there wasn't any but the manager did bring rolls and tea to one of our clients who had the flu. Nice people!

rates: Contact Hotel Littre, 9 rue Littre, Paris, 75006.
