The hotel's best asset is its location. Right next to the Louvre, and Place de la Concorde. Near excellent shoppes and cafes. The staff was friendly. That is where the positive notes end. The rooms are partitioned by paper thin walls. We could not sleep as we could hear everything in the adjacent rooms. The windows had very poor noise reduction and very poor insulation. Incredibly drafty. Very poor temperature control. We stayed here in January and next to a major street therefore these were significant issues. We also were charged significantly more to get a half decent view. As a final blow, after we checked out, we specifically requested the concierge to get us a taxi that accepted credit cards as we had exchanged most of our euros back to dollars. Well, they got us a taxi that did not and we realized this halfway to the airport. The taxi did take dollars but at a very unfavorable rate. I am partly to blame for trusting the hotel and not asking again before getting in the taxi.
