24 Hours In Paris With Renaissance Hotels

24 Hours In Paris With Renaissance Hotels

24 hours doesn’t sound long in Paris, but as it is one of my favourite cities, I’ll always make it work, and as I was in town to celebrate Renaissance Hotels #DayofDiscovery I knew it was going to be a fun day.

I warn you this is a bit of a lengthy one, it was a jam-packed day, but trust me it will be a fun post – we went on a 2CV tour of Paris, we saw some iconic sights as well as secret spots of Paris, enjoyed some scrummy food, danced in the street, went to the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition, and discovered a new amazing singing trio, The Groovy Project, it was seriously one amazing day in Paris.

Vlog: 24 Hours In Paris

Vlog: 24 Hours In Paris

So I’ve become a Youtuber, OK, not quite, but I have actually put some content on my Youtube channel, and the plan is to put more captivating content on there in the coming weeks and months, rather than just uploading videos shot from my smartphone.

The first of which is from my 24 hour adventures in Paris last week, if you follow me on Instagram and Twitter you probably saw that I went on a whirlwind trip to the French capital with Renaissance Hotels to celebrate their global Day of Discovery, which generally meant having as much fun as possible in 24 hours, which I hope comes across in the video, I even dance in the street!!!

Staycation: St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London

Staycation: St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London

I probably go past the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel around 2 to 3 times a week, I’ve been to events there, I’ve even had a few meetings, and each time I step inside the beautifully restored Victorian Gothic building the architecture takes my breath away, so I was a little giddy when I found out I’d be spending the night before whizzing over to Paris as part of a press trip.

The façade is spectacular, Gilbert Scott really knew what he was doing, and even during my short stay I loved getting lost just admiring the architectural details, from the grand staircase, which if you’re a Spice Girls fan you might recognise, to the Gothic Revival metalwork, gold leaf ceilings, the stunning wall designs, and those tiles that are just asking to be Instagrammed with the #IHaveAThingWithFloors!!!
