Side Trips: Travel Tips, Trends and Tools

October 13, 2002|RENEE VOGEL

I went to Paris about six months ago and stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel George V. It's five minutes from Avenue Montaigne, where all the great stores are--Fendi, Gucci, Prada--near the Arc de Triomphe and next to the Champs-Elysees. The rooms are huge--the bathrooms are really what I remember most. In terms of dinner, my favorite is L'Avenue on Avenue Montaigne [where she's pictured seated third from left]. The crab cakes are great. People in Paris dress so amazing, you have a great time looking at the people. A place to have drinks is the Plaza Athenee, an old hotel but the youngest, hippest crowd you can imagine.

Discovery: One of my favorite stores is called Colette. It's one of those lifestyle stores. You'll have everything from computers to Gucci and Prada clothes to sneakers to CDs and books. Downstairs is a restaurant with nice healthy food.
