We stayed at the Bristol for the 12th time in order to celebrate New Year's Eve in Paris and at the Bristol. Once again, we were extraordinarily happy with everything at the Bristol. Although the hotel was not required to have our room available for occupancy when we arrived at 9:00 a.m., not just the room but the specific room we had requested was ready for us. Then, our New Year's Eve dinner at 114 Faubourg -- the one Michelin restaurant at the hotel -- was marvelous. Aside from the excellent food, which included a fettuccini with white truffles, there were two singers who were not only able to sing numerous popular songs but they were also able with their two supporters to get everyone dancing in the restaurant. Then, after midnight, the dancing continued in the Bristol Bar. During our five night stay, the concierge staff was always willing and able to provide diligent help above and beyond the call of duty. Added to the foregoing were daily superb breakfasts in the Epicure dining room. Finally, the numerous Christmas trees in the Bristol garden with their bright Christmas lights and the Christmas trees in the lobby all contributed to our holiday feeling. The bottom line is that the Bristol makes you feel like family in your home away from home. All we can say is bring on our 13th stay. David and Alecia P.
