BEST KILLER VIEW: THE PLAZA ATHENEE
We're suckers for Paris and if there's a hotel that has a view of the Eiffel Tower from a bathtub, yeah, that's gonna be an award-winner for us.
This is the view (sent to us by a tipster) from a suite at the Plaza Athenee where you can gaze at the Eiffel in all its grandeur, naked, from your suite's bathtub. The suite is actually the three-bedroom Terrace Suite that goes for about 8,000 Euros a night. You do get a Maserati to use your during your stay and the suite comes with a private hammam and a roof deck with panoramic views of the city.
And about that view, it's actually facing a window to a hallway with another window that has the killer view. There's a switch in the bathroom so you can frost the window for privacy or in case you're sick of looking at the Eiffel Tower. Um, how do you say, "AS IF!" in French?
1. Planet Hollywood Las Vegas: A great view of the Bellagio Fountains and Paris next door. It also helps that we upgraded to this suite at check-in even though we only paid $54 a night through Hotwire.
