Andrew Harper's Paris Hideaway Report App
Wrote Elaine Glusac in the July 14, 2012 New York Times Travel section, "Subscribers have to pay at least $195 a year to get Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report, a monthly newsletter that reviews luxury hotels and resorts. Now the famously discerning Mr. Harper is giving away some of his tips, in a new iPad app."
And: "Andrew Harper's Paris covers restaurants, shops and attractions as well as hotels. Eschewing the model of most guidebooks, which survey the travel landscape more comprehensively, the app is, according to a welcome letter, "a selective and personal guide" to the city."
More: "Among 14 highlighted hotels are some of the city's most exclusive, including the Hôtel de Crillon and the Four Seasons Hotel George V. Dining choices are broader, ranging from cafes to haute cuisine. A location finder indicates how far users are from each entry, and tips — like visiting the second level of the Eiffel Tower to beat the crowds — are blended with his personal preferences for things like favorite artworks at the Louvre."
Go ahead, take a trip from the comfort of your favorite chair — I won't tell.
For now at least, the app is free, the way we like it.
