I have stayed at the Intercontinental Le Grand and St James & Albany in Paris. Both were nice and in good location. Unsure about the rate at IC as I redeemed points for it. I think currently IC hotel chain has a stay 2 and get 1 night free promotion. S&A was like 150-160 euro a night IIRC.
There are more things than age to consider to be an independent contractor / consultant. First of all, are you in a sustained and favorable position with your capabillies, connections/channels, cost?
