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.


As well as being a major transport hub, La Defense is also a major shopping centre. The 4 Temps shopping centre above the railway station is the largest in the Paris area. The shopping mall has a good range of restaurants and a huge supermarket too.


As a business district, hotels are not that cheap during the working week. At weekends and the French holiday month of August all the workers disappear and all the hotels deep discount in an effort to fill some of those beds. You may be very tempted to even trade up to a 4 or 5 star hotel, so good is the relative value that may be on offer at this time.


Nearly all the accommodation options are close to the two Metro stations are large global chains, dominated by brands belonging to the French Accor chain including ibis, Mercure, Novotel and Sofitel.
