When I researched for my trip to Paris this Spring at Le Cinq Codet, I knew I would be close to the Eiffel Tower. I always plan a walk to see her sparkle at least once every trip. Since I was starting my trip here, I assumed I would walk over after dinner my first night. I checked into my room and I was given the biggest birthday surprise of my own private terrace and view of the Eiffel Tower. I arrived back in the room after dark after meeting a friend and I walked out onto the terrace to admire this very special view to watch the Eiffel Tower sparkle. I was very happy to share a little preview on stories. Did you know the Eiffel Tower sparkles every hour on the hour for 5 minutes after dark?
