This was my first stay in Europe as I was attending the expo and chose this hotel for the lounge access "as I am a gold member" and I brought my wife so it was within walking distance to the mall so she could shop while I was at expo. We stayed here 3 nights and moved to downtown Paris after. I am a frequent traveler to Asia so I am use to huge, modern, first class rooms and this hotel seemed very outdated to me. I did get an amazing rate so I wasn't expecting it to be phenomenal but I was definitely unhappy with my room. It was old and bathroom was small and outdated but the staff was more than happy to move me. They offered me a corner suite room for more money "which was larger but not much better for the upgrade of money and faced construction out back so we ended up getting just a larger reg. room and it was fine. We went out to eat and came back and there was a bottle of champagne for us, which was so nice. The staff was always talking to us and making sure we were happy and if we needed anything. They were terrific. I am use to getting upgraded to executive suites in Asia for free just for going frequently but things are different in Paris so don't expect a nice free upgrade. U do however have lounge access and free internet for gold + members.
The lounge was nice with a decent selection for breakfast and snacks. I loved the cappuccino machine in the lounge alone! We ended up moving our hotel 2 days earlier just for the fact that we wanted to experience downtown Paris and had no reason to be in this part of France.
I wasn't really impressed with this hotel again as the rooms seemed outdated to what I am use to but I cant say enough good about the hotel staff. Very professional and helpful. Its really not bad for the price, just don't expect first class rooms.
