We are home from Paris and had a wonderful time. We were very happy with La Clef Louvre. It was a perfect location and the accommodations were very nice. Robert was wonderful. He knew that we would have a long time to wait to get into our room so he gave us a short tour (WWI airfield and Basilica St. Denis) on our way into the city. He is very charming and helpful. He also is very complimentary of you. Thank you so much for the help you gave us to make this trip special. Robert wished me happy birthday and the hotel had a small box of nuggets in our room with a birthday wish. How nice of you to alert them to my special day. -- Judy W.
