I am in my 30's and am taking my 16 year old daugher to Paris for her birthday in December. I am working with a travel agent who tells me that staying in central Paris (district 1) is best because you can get everywhere easily. However, just doing some of my own research, I absolutely love some of the hotels near the Eiffel Tower (district 7). What area is best for a first-timer in Paris?? I can't seem to make up my mind! The hotels in district 1 are larger but seem so "business-like" to me.....thanks!!
