Paige Donner wrote this post about Hotel Eiffel Trocadéro in Paris.
In Paris, Place du Trocadéro has long needed a swanky, new boutique hotel.
With the top-to-bottom, refurbished Hotel Eiffel Trocadéro, the neighborhood has just deservedly been gifted a lovely gem.
The Hotel Eiffel Trocadéro is a green hotel, though you would never guess it with its sedated use of jewel-toned color-accents such as ginger-gold and turquoise velvet all made from ethically-sourced textiles.
Nestled just behind the Benjamin Franklin statue that sits to the right of the Musée de l’Homme, you see Hotel Eiffel Trocadéro when you gaze out toward the Eiffel Tower from the monumental Trocadéro.
This chic and lounge-y Paris boutique hotel offers 17 rooms, one of which is the Eiffel Suite.

Most of the hotel’s upper rooms have views directly onto the Eiffel Tower. Each room has been lovingly renovated with only the highest quality, and mostly sustainable, materials along with an eye to sophisticatedeco-design.
From the 35 rue Benjamin Franklin front entrance, you are greeted with pristine, white custom-made furniture in the form of a chaise lounge and a Living Wall and granite floor.
The Eiffel Tower is the most visited monument in the City of Light so millions of visitors stop at the Trocadéro for the photo op that you see in the perfume and car commercials. (Dior Homme)

At this eco boutique hotel and bar/lounge, you can grab a cup of espresso, a flute of organic champagne and a hot lunch, dinner or snack made from locally-sourced and seasonal ingredients.
In 2012, look for the hotel’s green credentials – Eco Label and Green Globe seals.
