The Hotel is beautiful & the staff is tremendously helpful. A few hours after our arrival, we received a package of "Things to see & do in Paris" highlighting popular attractions, restaurants, & shopping with detailed directions to the destination via public transportation. Conveniently located near the Metro stop, we purchased a week pass & were at all of our favorite destinations around Paris within 15 minutes from the time we got on. It took 25 minutes by train to get to Versailles Palace which was a scenic & definite worthwhile trip.
This hotel is within a 5 minute walk to the Grande Arche, a huge shopping mall close to 300 stores & eateries ( with some great prices ), restaurants, the Metro, water fountains, a carousel, banks, Starbucks; most anything you could want. The area is bustling during the day & calm at night which was a welcome relief from some busy days of sightseeing & partying.
The breakfast buffet was amazing every morning, & we enjoyed dinner a couple times as well in the dining room looking out at the Grande Arche. We made friends in the lounge which served food & drink late & we were able to grab a good expresso at the bar as as well.
Most impressive was the Hotel staff, extremely pleasant , well versed in English, & always ready to assist. They went out of their way in assisting us with recovering a lost bag from the airport & even called the New York Airport for us the following day. We were impressed by the entire staff & appreciated the housekeeping staff help us brush us on our french.
