As I am heading back to my native Paris this coming Monday, I am excited to share my stay at the historical Hotel Eiffel Blomet. I was able to get a taste of this boutique hotel on my last trip to Paris back in early January of this year. It has been a bit of a whirlwind for me since 2018 kicked off. This is my fourth time traveling, I went to Paris, New York, Mexico and I am about to head back to Paris to work on a top secret project.

Traveling is something that remains challenging in the sense that my anxiety kicks in and I usually have a much harder time falling asleep. So I can’t stress enough how important it is to find a good hotel. I experienced it first hand when I went to New York to pitch to clients and attend Curve NYC. I was sleepless for about two weeks. So I am excited to talk about my flawless stay at Hotel Eiffel Blomet.

This hotel is located just behind the Eiffel Tower and on the same street as the Jazz Café Blomet. I immediately felt connected to the neighborhood, as it has a rich history of cabaret and the café itself used to be called “ Le Bal Nègre.” The legendary Joséphine Baker visited that café. With that in mind I was fascinated by the fact that the suite where I stayed had this giant photograph honoring Joséphine’s memory. And there was an additional frame referencing the Exposition Universelle sitting on top of my bed.

It is no secret that I once performed my own cabaret show all over Los Angeles and I included songs by Joséphine Baker as part of my sets. So I felt taken by the hotel right away. It’s always the little details that make all the difference. The balcony view was priceless and I also loved how timeless the bathroom was. I tend to be attracted to hotels that are more intimate, but with a sense of details and a history that I can relate to. It makes my stay more personal and meaningful stay.

I was able to take several pictures in a lingerie set designed by Harlow & Fox that evoked old-Paris. I went for a “Gamine” look that was 1920s-1930s inspired and it was easy to include it in this minimalist decor. I also wore one of my favorite lace bodysuit from Zathiya Lingerie for a selfie. My hotel stay included a complimentary access to the Art Deco pool, as well as usage of the Sauna and Hammam that were located in the Spa part of the hotel.

My stay felt like a very secluded and private experience with only one or two other couples that used the pool at the same time as me. I cherish my privacy, as it helps me disconnect from stress and recharge my batteries for my next shoot or creative venture. My stay also included a complementary French breakfast with croissants, coffee, a fresh squeezed orange juice and toasts.

I really enjoyed my time at Hotel Eiffel Blomet and I felt like the service was excellent. My suite was extremely comfortable and my only regret is  that I didn’t have a personal tub, as it is my preference. I will happily renew my stay in the future, as I feel it is also the perfect way to discover a Parisian neighborhood.
