I overheard someone at work raving about the ideal location of this hotel, so I made a reservation for a two day (1 night) stay in Paris. The website boasted about an "only 129 Euro" offer for a deluxe room, which I then booked.
Only on returning from my trip did I realise that there are no "standard" rooms advertised on the Marriott website - instead they seem to call their standard rooms deluxe rooms. What was supposed to be deluxe, I have no idea. The attribute didn't fit the room, and it certainly didn't fit the bathroom.
Very dusty skirting boards in the bathroom, one side of the tiles had mouldy grouting, and the bathroom floor had definitely not been cleaned in a while as stated by several dirty spots and stains.
As someone else mentioned before, the room was extremely warm. I had to turn the air conditioning to the coldest setting for the room to get to a bearable temperature.
The good things about this hotel:
Although normal check-in time is 3 pm, and I asked for check-in around 1 pm, the room was ready when I arrived early around 11:30 am.
The bed was extremely comfortable.
The location at the end of metro line 1 is a definite plus. Line 1 will get you into the city center very quickly.
Even if the price of 129 Euros for Paris is not bad, I'd rather pay more for a hotel that offers a "real" deluxe room.
