The opening of the Intercontinental Paris Le Grand, in 1862, was overseen by none other than Napoleon III's wife, Empress Eugénie. Over the ensuing decades, the hotel has various royalty, including Tsar Nicholas, King Edward VII of England, and a bit more recently, Queen Rania of Jordan.
A Timeless Classic
Today, the Intercontinental Paris Le Grand is best known for offering superb views of the Paris Opera House and the buskers who perform nightly on its steps. Because the hotel is accustomed to royalty, its staff, from the concierge to housekeeping, go out of their way to accommodate every guest's needs. The in-house restaurant La Verrière, set in a winter garden, is particularly beautiful after dusk falls. The Cafe de la Paix is listed as an official monument; the chef Christophe Raoux's cuisine should not be missed. As befits a historical luxury hotel fully renovated for contemporary guests, a spa and fitness center with a sauna are available on-site. Guests with cars should note that due to the common presence of visiting dignitaries, access to the street in front of the hotel's main entrance is often restricted.
The hotel is steps from the best of luxury Paris, from shopping on the Rue Saint Honoré to the beautiful Place Vendôme. The lush Jardin des Tuileries and the historical church at Madeleine are also in easy walking distance.
It was great and very luxury hotel
the spa and restaurant was very nice
The laocation to the stores
To far away from the lifts and services, a mouse where food was being served.
The location was excellent. Can access to most of touristic place, including Marais, St. Germain des pres, etc.
This is not only InterContinental Paris Le Grand, but...I think the room rate of hotels in Paris is way too high. I stayed in one of standard rooms and it was 395 euros...and the rack rate is 700 euros per night for the same room !
It is a beautiful hotel and very luxurious.
I was very disappointed because of the air condition, I was keep telling the hotel everyday and every hour during my stay to fix the air condition but they did nothing and keep saying we cannot do anything more, the room was hot and couldn't stay comfort or sleep!
Excellent ubication, service and personnel attention exceeds expectations particularly the Concierge staff. Cafe de La Paix stills very good.
Very central to major shopping centres.the staff are very cordial and helpful
Very slow restaurant services,we had to wait almost one hour before our meal came that was in the main restaurant in the evening.i would not recomend guests to eat at the hotel.the food is expensive and not up to standard.would recomend the hotel except for the food
I liked very much the luxury of the rooms and of course the perfect location in the heart of paris. the best cafes and food. and the very welcoming and helpful staff.
Not at all.
It is a very luxurious and well located hotel
Most of the staff is very inpolite! We could not check in on time, one of our rooms was ready only 1 hour after correct check in time and the other one 4 hours later. In the meantime, no forecast was given and a lot of other guests were able to check in.
I liked the location that provides easy access to the most important business, banking, touristic and shopping places.
I would prefer to stay in modern hotel with new design and young profile, and in particular I need to have free access to the internet. This service is not a privilege these days ans all hotels provide it free.
