our experience was really nice. when we first checked in we were told that we could only have three people in the room, but our arrangements when booking had allowed us to have two adults and two toddlers. within a minute or so, we were told that they could accommodate us this time but to know that in the future we would have to book two separate rooms. We had no other problems whatsover and enjoyed our stay.
Just across the street from the hotel is the express to the airport and to the left of the hotel is the bus station, the metro and a mall. make sure to use only coins when purchasing metro passes because it does not accept foreigner credit cards nor paper money.
we drove around the city as we have two children and the metro we thought would be to chaotic with two children and a double-stroller.
the parking structure is to the right of the hotel and they validate and offer 50% off at the front desk.
the hallways smelled like cigarettes... but you are in france... so that's a given...
