This hotel has just been remodeled, and is clearly vying to compete with the other 5 star Paris Palace hotels ( such as Ritz, George V, Plaza Athenee, Creon, less Meurice, Bristol, etc.). With the advent of Peninsula, Mandarin Oriental, Shangri La, and others, I am intrigued with how competitive the uber luxury hospitality business in Paris must have become. This is a nice hotel if you want dignified modern in a Palace setting. In some ways this hotel is Hyatt meets Le Meurice.
This is a Starwood property, and comes with the typical benefits from Starwood if you have elite traveler status. The bar area is beautiful. The property has a healthy vibe. There was no posturing or snobbery, even when I checked in a bit on edge after a long and tiring journey. Expect to pay top money for everything, but that is a standard for any luxury hotel in Paris. For bargains stay at the Sheraton by the airport. The gym is relatively small, but one of the best hotel gyms in Europe. The spa is too small....
Overall, we had a good stay. The front desk staff were very good, and patient. We thought that the room cleaning could have been a bit better, but had no real issues, and would definitely return.More
