Visible from the hotel’s higher floors, the Eiffel Tower is a 20-minute ride on bus 92. The city’s iconic monument was built in 1889 to commemorate the centenary of the French Revolution. If you’re feeling energetic, you can follow a winding staircase from the bottom to the second floor. Pause at the first level where you can walk on a transparent floor and peer down to the ground, 57 metres below. From the second floor, a glass lift whisks you to the top, where sweeping city views greet you. Once you’ve filled your camera with panoramic shots, treat yourself to a glass of bubbly from the Champagne bar. Also at the top, you can explore Gustave Eiffel’s office or enjoy a bite to eat in the buffet or full-service restaurants. Use the hotel’s free WiFi to book tickets online before you go.
