I have been traveling to Paris on business for ten years and stayed here for the first time in June. I hated every moment of it and was thrilled to check out. While the public rooms on the first level are appealing, I knew I was in trouble when I got off the elevator on the floor of my room. The carpet was dingy, the paint was cracked and scarred and it only got worse when I opened the door to my room. The carpet had both dark and bleached spots, the furniture was ugly and marred, and the plumbing fixtures were out of the 19th century. The separate closet for the toilet was so narrow there is no way an even moderately plump person could have used it. As I work for a non profit organization and have a limited travel budget, I really tried to talk myself into staying, but I had to do something because I was booked there for three nights. I called my travel agent, who in turn called the hotel manager and got me a room with an updated bathroom. But, you are not going to believe this, the new room - although it had a marble vanity and shower - had the same tiny toilet closet, the same scarred furniture, and carpet that was both bleached and spotted. If you like cleanliness like I do as well as decent furnishings, and don't want to have to leave your socks on when you walk on the carpet, make sure to stay somewhere else. As Paris was at the peak tourist season at the time, I could not find another hotel that was in my price range. Unfortunately, staying here ruined the trip.
