This week, I earned my keep for HotelChatter.com by posting a couple of reviews about my stay last week at Mama Shelter in Paris.
The hotel, built by the Club Med Trigano family and designed by Philippe Starck, was a welcome change from the spate of rural hotels and inns I'd been staying in. It was just lovely to get back to a place with more of an urban feeling, even if the staff played it a little too cool and the clientele tended towards the hipster-ish.
There was still plenty to enjoy, though, as you'll see from the following four reviews and their embedded videos.
