I've worked with the Westin for years organising Spyns Tour de France packages and just had another successful stay in July 2013. Despite a few hiccups this year (discussed below), this is truly the best hotel to see the TDF finish in Paris. On the positive side, the hotel's location is excellent. Located in Paris's swank '1er arrondissement' the Westin is within walking distance of the Champs Elysees, Louvre, and Seine river. It's also situated on the Rue de Rivoli, part of the TDF racecourse. So our clients have rooms overlooking the race or they can watch from our VIP rooms. Standard rooms are always very clean with the Westin's signature big beds. I'm a bit of a bed snob and the pillows are excellent. Breakfasts for our groups are always terrific. This year we had private breakfasts in a spectacular ballroom. As for Tour de France viewing, we rent suites overlooing the racecourse and this year didn't disappoint. The rooms were perfect, despite the hot weather, and the Westin staff was always helpful with ice, clean up, table set up etc. On the "needs improvement" column, we need a better check in system. This is the second year we've been promised a check in desk which never materialized. Another issue was signage as our company name was missing from all signs but that was quickly corrected. Minor issues for what was an excellent stay for Spyns Tour de France tour.
