Five hotels in Paris launch a scheme to allow guests to “pay what you want”. The participating three- and four-star hotels are located in the city’s 9th and 11th districts, a bit far from Paris’ tourist centers. The idea came from Aldric Duval, the head of the Tour d’Auvergne hotel, and it is intended to attract more tourists in their area. Guests are expected to pay based on the room, the hotel service, and their impressions of the hotel. The participating hotels are confident that guests will pay fairly. The scheme will run until August 10 and is available for online bookings made through the website www.payezcequevousvoulez.net (Pay what you want). The experiment may be extended if successful. Duval:
It’s a fair price operation, one of confidence in the client.
