Hot in Paris: See the Blockbuster Art Exhibition of the Year, Claude Monet at the Grand Palais

Hotel de Crillon

Heading to Paris in the next few months? Don't miss the Claude Monet exhibition at the Grand Palais, the "biggest the world has ever seen," opening next week. The most famous father of Impressionism is being honored in a big way; 200 of his paintings will be displayed to show Monet's artistic development over the 60 years he painted-- including still-lifes (like "Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe") and the large-scale waterlilies painted in his garden at Giverny. It's already sold 38,000 tickets and promises to outsell the huge Picasso exhibition showcased earlier this year. Stay in style at the Hotel de Crillon (pictured)-- the gorgeous palace on the famous Place De La Concorde-- and take advantage of a special offer promoted by Concorde Hotels & Resorts. A special "Monet Exhibition Package" is available at the company's six Parisian hotels, including the Crillon, Hotel Lutetia, Hotel du Louvre, Hotel Concorde La Fayette, Concorde Opéra Paris, and Hotel Concorde Montparnasse. Starting from $245 per night, the package includes two priority tickets for the exhibition, accommodations for two, early check-in (helpful after those red-eye flights from the U.S!), late check-out, and buffet breakfast for two daily.
