Celebrate Winter Holidays in Paris; Lutetia Hotel Offers Special Package at 40+% Savings

NEW YORK, NY — (MARKET WIRE) — 10/06/2005 — Make this holiday season one to remember with a trip to Paris to see how the City of Light sparkles at Christmas and New Years. Treat yourself to a stay on the famous Left Bank in the 4-star Hotel Lutetia, whose guest list has included Picasso, Charles de Gaulle, Josephine Baker and other luminaries. The Lutetia, a member of the Concorde Group of luxury properties and the only fully deluxe Grand Hotel on the Left Bank, is offering a special “Winter Sparkles” package — with savings of more than 40% over rack rates — to make it that much more tempting.

The Lutetia’s “Winter Sparkles” package, valid for stays from December 1, 2005 through January 8, 2006, is for a minimum of two nights and includes: full buffet breakfast daily, special VIP welcome in room, complimentary cocktail for two at the bar, half-bottle of champagne at dinner for two at the hotel’s Brasserie, and a map of the Left Bank showing shopping, tourist and gastronomic attractions.

Prices vary depending on the dates. Between December 1-26 and January 3-8 the 2-night, per room rate starts at 540 Euros ($652 US at press time) for a Superior Room, 680 Euros ($821 US) for a Deluxe room and 780 Euros ($942 US) for a Junior Suite. December 27-January 2 the rates are slightly higher: 580 Euros ($700 US) Superior, 720 Euros ($869 US) Deluxe, 820 Euros ($990 US) Junior Suite. Compare this to the hotel’s rack rates — which are per night — of 480 Euros ($579 US) for Superior, 550 Euros ($664 US) for Deluxe and 650 Euros ($785 US) for Junior Suite. All rates include VAT.

A special New Year’s Eve dinner, at either of the hotel’s two excellent restaurants, the “Lutetia” brasserie or the Michelin-starred “Paris” gourmet restaurant, is extra and costs 140 Euros per person at the brasserie, 290 Euros at “Paris” (excludes beverages). To top it off, there will be dancing at the Bar on New Year’s Eve.
