Hotels in La Defense district in Paris forms a very distinctive choice for visitors to Paris looking for accommodation in one of the main business districts of Paris or looking for great value hotels at the weekends when the business people are away and rooms have to be filled.

La Defense, built from scratch as the new modern business district for Paris, is some way to the west of the city centre of Paris. At first sight, for the average visitor it doesn't look an obvious option to look for accommodation.

However, La Defense is connected to the centre of Paris by the fast Metro Line 1 that goes direct to the Louvre and Notre Dame in about 15-20 minutes and the even faster RER Line A trains take you direct to the shopping districts, Arc de Triomphe and beyond even as far as Disneyland.
