Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador Hotel
Ranked #568 of 1,803 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Booked in to stay in This hotel for 4 nights pre tour. Was disappointed considering what we paid for accommodation. There was very little hanging space for clothes in the room especially for ladies. I agree that rooms can be smaller in Europe but this was still small. There was a problem with the heated towel rail. The control switch was broken and didn't work. They are always handy for the odd clothes washing and drying. I reported this to a Hotel staff on two occasions but was never looked at. Service in the breakfast room wasn't good, frequently running out of cutlery and cups.

Room Tip: Rooms on 7th floor front of house Boulevard Haussmann have views of the Eiffel Tower

We moved to the Marriott opera from a different hotel in Paris. After our first Parisienne hotel experience the Marriott was a welcome oasis. The rooms are large, comfortable and luxurious. The service is professional and efficient and the location is perfect to wonder around Paris on foot. We had a rude awakening by the fire alarm but that did nothing to spoil our stay.

This hotel is in a great location, served by several Metro stations/lines, and a not-too-long walk uphill to Montmartre/Sacre Coeur. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was comfy. Wifi was terrible in the rooms, despite reviews/responses from hotel stating that the wifi has been updated. We were able to get good wifi reception only in the lobby, and in fact found ourselves surrounded by other guests all tapping away at iPhones/iPads/computers in the lobby because they had the same issue. With so many choices of great Paris hotels, I am not sure I would return to this one, but if I did stay here I would not be unhappy.

We stayed 1 night on our way out of France, the rest of time we had stayed in vacation rentals but we wanted one last night inParis before a morning flight. We wanted a hotel with excellent concierge service since we would be returning a rental car and we didn't want to deal with the hassle of returning the car to the city location we rented from.

The lobby was lovely, our two children were greeted with large lollipops the shape of the Eiffel Tower, what's not to love when you are 6 and 8. Our rooms we're ready and we dropped the car keys with the concierge who took care of all the return arrangements. Wonderful!

The rooms were quiet and comfortable. We did not eat in the hotel preferring to have the bistro experience one last time. The walk back was lovely with a surprise view up the hill of Montmartre a block from the hotel. That was a treat since we didn't make it there this trip.

The real standout was he emergency concierge service I required the next morning upon arrival at the airport I realized I had left 1 carry on at the hotel in my room. I immediately called the hotel and the incredibly polite and efficient concierge immediately sent someone to the room, retrieved the bag, put it in a taxi, contacted me to provide the taxi driver information, and made sure I received my bag. Excellent service, I would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone looking for convenient location, excellent value for money, and fantastic service.

Stayed at The Marriott Opera Ambassador in March 2014. Lovely Hotel in a great location near Galleries Lafayette the most beautiful shopping centre just loved it! Also near Pritemps shopping centre which has a wonderful rooftop Restuarant with great views. Near the Opera Garnier & a gorgeous church La Madeleine. Very clean rooms,spacious & the rooftop executive lounge is great.Beds were very comfortable & the breakfast was great! The only thing That stopped me giving an execellent score was we were in an adjoining room & you could hear everything in the other room so ask when booking not for an adjoining room!

Room Tip: Don't get an adjoining room - spend a bit more & get an executive room

Taking into consideration than European 5* standards are somewhat lower than American, this place is one of the best I've stayed in Paris. They aim for US 5* standards and I think they have accomplished that without loosing the Parisien feel. Rooms are very big, free wifi, beautiful lobby coffee shop, excellent food, allot of all inculisive service and treats. But slightly over priced though.

Front desk staff was friendly and accommodating.
Our room was not ready the morning we arrived. They held our bags and we hit the city for some site seeing.
When we arrived back that night, our bags were all safely in our room already.
Slept great.
Breakfast in the morning was delicious. As it should be.
Short walk to the Opera House, Hard Rock Cafe and other sights.
We came in from London on the Eurostar and departed by TGV to Hamburg.
Two different train stations, both are walking distance. Probably a mile I guess.
It is a reasonable cab ride as well.
