“Great Location - Average Food - Expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

A short walk to the Louvre and a not so short walk to the Eiffel Tower and the Champs Elysses makes for a great location! As Starwood platinum, we got an upgrade to a suite which provided great space. This was welcomed as our 9 year old daughter was not feeling well and we spent much more time in the hotel than anticipated. The concierge service was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a nice offering but the food was remarkably marginal tasting. They offered many options for breakfast catering to Asians and Europeans as well as Americans but not as delicious as I had expected. Breakfast was included in the room charge but was 39euros on the menu. The one dinner we had using room service was very tasty and the lunch we had in the courtyard was also nice. The champagne in the bar was marginal and very pricey for what they offered. I have to admit that as vintage champagne drinkers, it would be hard to please us but 24 Euros for glass of Moet Non Vintage plus the 20% VAT was a little excessive.

I stayed at the Westin - Vendome in June, 2014. I found the hotel in general to be running in a state of confusion. There did not seem to be any aspect of this hotel that was organized and under control.
I have probably stayed in at least 10 hotels in Paris over the years, including a prior visit to this hotel.
I would suggest that prior to making a reservation at this hotel, you should search out other options in this part of Paris and at comparable prices

We paid 600Euro per night and the place was lousy.
We checked in at 2.55pm, check-in time was 3pm and they had no idea when we could have our room. The room was so small, with cheap amenities, very dusty and not clean. 600 Euro per night!
The Public spaces were awful, this should be a 5 star hotel, but it was like a 2 star

Room Tip: Do not stay here.

Returning to Paris after 5 years. 1 night with family between 2 business meetings in Europe. Location is superb. We arrived by bus 24 from Gare de Lyon to Musee d'Orsay then crossed Seine river by pedestrian walking bridge (1mn) then crossed Jardin des Tuileries (4mn). It was a sunny day and it felt like paradise. We could do shopping at Dsquared, Tom Ford and others Rue St Honore and tea time at Mandarin Oriental and be back to drop sopping bags within minutes. Opera and Place Vendome also next door, as well as restaurant Carre des Feuillants (great lunch set) and Jean Paul Hevin (tea time again). Hotel is huge (ex Intercontinental Rivoli) and check in at 4pm was not too quick but was fine. Long walking corridors but room was very comfortable and quiet on one of the multiplex courtyard. Gold SPG have free Wifi. But no coffee machine in room (only on room service request, 1 free cup per day... with 6 EUR service charge :)

If you want a very central home base to explore Paris, this is it. Hotel itself is fine, but nothing special. A pub inspired bar that could be anywhere and a high end restaurant (looked decent but we didn't go to Paris to eat in) and odd astro turfed court in the middle as the 'coffee shop'. Gym space sub par (but adequate) and no indoor pool. We had the Royal Suite on the first floor w expansive wrap around balconies and amazing views. The total living space was almost 2000 sq.ft and decorated very authentic Parisien. LOVED LOVED LOVED our room (but that option is obviously not available to most/nor us very often €3000+ per night). As with many Westins, hotel snobs will not be overjoyed, but if you get the right room, the location will make up for it. Traffic noise on Rue de Rivoli a bit of an issue if you get rooms with the best views. I considers a 4* but realized I would be basing that on our extravagant suite more than the overall hotel.

Westin Hotel - located across from the Tuileries Gardens. 20 minute walk to the Champs Élysées - 50 minute walk to Le Tour Eiffel, 5 minutes walk to the louvre. Taxis are easy to locate outside the hotel. When the hotel is busy, you can be in a lengthy queue for taxis. Tip: walk up the street and catch a taxi in minutes. Fantastic concierge. Every restaurant he recommended was fabulous.
Great room service. Great food. Our room faced the courtyard, which wasn't the best view for the money's we paid per night!! Rooms were cleaned thoroughly every day. Beautiful courtyard to dine in. Lunch. Dinner or Just to drink coffee, read. Excellent staff on every level. Great stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't overlook the courtyard!
