When: June 2005

Pretty hotel in Champs Elysees area. {5 star Luxury}

I stayed here with my DH this past June during the air show. He was in Paris on business and he likes to stay at Starwood properties to earn points.

The hotel is pretty -- it has a small lobby which is tastefully appointed. We were hoping to get upgraded since my DH has a platinum Starwood status, but they were completely booked for the air show. So, we had an interior room on a low floor with a view of their garden restaurant. We were disappointed about the upgrade (or lack of), but once we saw the room we were quite pleased. It had a small foyer with a coat closet and a bench, a very large bedroom with a couple of reading chairs, and a marble bathroom with nice fixtures. Everything was decorated in a pleasant yellow toile. The room was always very clean after housekeeping had been there.

The concierge were helpful in making dinner reservations, and we basically had no problems to speak of. We never tried the hotel bar or restaurant. The hotel is next to the George V hotel which has a very nice, albeit expensive, bar and restaurant. And it is half a block to the metro in one direction, and 2 or 3 blocks to the Seine in the other. It was an easy walk to the Tour Eiffel. There are plenty of restaurants near the hotel.

Although I think we would both prefer to stay in the 6th arr., I think we will both stay here again because we could use Starwood points.
