“Best vacation ever at the Renaissance Arc de Triomphe”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We arrived at the Renaissance AdT on April 3 for 1 weeks stay. We were instantly welcomed by Dian at the front desk. From the moment we walked in we were treated like family. Dian noted we were celebrating our anniversary and had a bottle of champagne waiting up in our room. She also gave us the rundown of the hotel and neighborhood, including a good Patisserie for lunch - sandwiches and pastries. The hotel has a hip modern vibe to it. Our room was quite nice, with a little balcony overlooking the back of the hotel. The location of the hotel is great. Just steps from the Charles DeGaulle and Ternes metro stops. The Arc de Triomphe is a 5 minute walk and can be seen from the hotel. The Eiffel Tower is about 15 minutes away on the Metro but can also be seen from the hotel. We had breakfast a few times at Makassar, which was included, but a little pricey if its not. The bar and lounge have a cool ambience as well, and they have a DJ some nights. The hotel staff, from Dian, the concierge, front desk, bellmen, chambermaids, etc. are all amazing. They really went out of their way to make our vacation perfect.
The surrounding area is a little quiet and very nice and safe, but its a good central base, and we were out and about a lot. Paris is a walking city, and we walked everywhere as well as taking advantage of the Metro, which is fantastic and easy to use. We took a dinner cruise down the Seine on Le Calife, which was very romantic and had great food. We went to several museums, the Orsay being our favorite. The Louvre is great, but its huge and daunting. Went to a cool jazz club called Caveau des Obuilettes. Really cool place underground in an old jail/dungeon. We had some reservations when we arrived, but it turned out to be a great place to see a show. I recommend using La Fourchette to book dinners as they offer 20-50% off dinners at some restaurants.
The hotel also had a love lock promotion, which was very nice. They have a large "R" outside and you get a lock, write your names on it and they give you a glass of champagne as you put the lock on and throw away the key. Their version of the love lock bridges.
Our favorite areas were the Marais and the Latin quarter. We also took a crazy day trip flight to Monte Carlo and Cannes, which was fun but it was an exhausting day. We booked the flight through Easy Jet, which had very cheap flights and its only 85 min away to get to Nice.
I highly recommend this hotel, they really made it our dream vacation by pulling out all the stops and being so helpful, whether it's receommendations for dinner, getting us a taxi, leaving candies every night during turndown service, or just welcoming us by name everytime we walked by the lobby. Great location, staff, rooms, food and drink. Go enjoy Paris at the Renaissance!

Room Tip: Get a room in back on a high floor with a balcony.

We recently stayed at the Renaissance Arc de Triomphe when in town for the Paris Marathon. Looking to use Marriott Rewards points, we were evaluating each of the local Marriott properties, including Vendome and Champs Elysees.

After reading a number of other reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to stay at the Arc de Triomphe property. Among other factors, the location was prime for the Marathon, being just steps from the start and finish lines. It was also close to some of Paris' best restaurants and the M-1 line, from which you can virtually get anywhere in or around town. As a side note, our last time in Paris, we stayed in a more residential part of the 7th - and we found the locals on this side of town to be much more friendly and accommodating.

Upon arrival, the staff was quite warm and welcoming. Though there was quite a long line at check-in (also due to check-out's), they managed to accommodate everyone in a pretty swift fashion. Though our room wasn't ready at check-in, the front desk was kind enough to call when it was.

Like many remodeled Renaissances, the hotel in general is very chic. The rooms themselves were impressive as well, quite large by European standards. Our room faced away from the Ave. de Wagram, towards La Defense. It was quite peaceful, even with the door to a small patio left open. The bathroom was a far cry from our last Parisian stay - with a full bath and vanity.

The daily breakfasts, included at no cost as the hotel does not have a concierge lounge, were sumptuous, with a decent spread both on the a-la-carte menu and buffet. The housekeeping staff, with whom we spoke on several occasions when in need of more towels, were friendly and extremely fast. Even the fitness center was modern and of a decent size, never having to wait for a machine even at peak hours. As native English speakers knowing little French, we had no issues at all speaking with anyone in the hotel.

What really set this hotel apart though was the magnificent concierge, Mael, who deserves a huge shout-out. Not only was he spot on with EVERY recommendation he made, but he was also quite honest (see my Le Relais de Venise review). Further, he also took the time to chat with us regarding the Marathon - even sharing his own experiences - and leaving a personal note wishing us luck the following day. He helped to make the stay that much more memorable!

In conclusion, as someone who likes to hotel-hop when revisiting a city, I would book here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor away from Ave de Wagram!

We travelled to Paris for a weekend break, were shamelessly intending on visiting all the main tourist attractions, and needed a well-located base which allowed us to be walking distance from most places of interest.

The hotel met all of our needs, we took the Eurostar rather than fly, and it was a short easy trip from Gare du Nord on the Metro. The reception staff and concierge were excellent, very courteous and helpful. Our room was modern, clean and had a balcony. The only negative was that it was a little noisy, ie from the rooms around us.

We only needed a room to sleep in, and were out and about for the rest of our time in Paris, so the hotel met our needs perfectly.

We had a lovely time at this hotel. The staff was very accommodating to us - even before we arrived the staff was extremely gracious to us and helped us to resolve all issues we had. The room was extremely large and very well maintained. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean and bright. The best part was the floor to ceiling window overlooking the city.

The breakfast was very nice. There was a nice selection of warm and cold items. Something for everyone (including me, lactose intolerant in Paris).

The gym was clean, modern and equipped with hand weights and cardio machines.

I found the staff there to be warm and very friendly. They were very comfortable dealing with English speakers, which we both appreciated. We'd happily go here again. The location is excellent - a stone's throw to the Arc.

My family received a very warm reception from Maximillian (thanks a million!) at the front desk upon arrival. He was very helpful and up beat. The room was modern and a big hit with our daughters, particularly the older teenager (hummm...maybe it was the the bell boy?). The hotel is very close to the metro and area shops and restaurants. The concierge made very good dining recommendations. On top of that....the weather was fabulous though I don't know that Marriott can credit for that! Would certainly stay there again and recommend it to others.

Boutique hotels don't get much better than this. Friendly and helpful staff; free wifi; easy walking distance to the champs élysées, arc & metro; surrounded by delicious restaurants & night market.
The rooms are a decent size and come with a balcony. My recommendation is to ask for a room with a bath, this will come in handy if you love to walk and take in all the beautiful city had to offer.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay. On arrival staff were very welcoming and helpful. Room was clean and modern. Breakfast choice was excellent. The position of this hotel was great, with 2 children aged 11 and 5 we managed to walk to the arc de triomphe, the Eiffel Tower and the champs élysées. I would definitely return to this hotel again and would recommend it to everyone.
