Sympathetic environment. Very good location Too expensive for what it is. There was no hot water in our room (room 406) and the concierge did nothing about it. We had to leave the next morning. Not a good experience. The room was very small and the price was huge. 570 euros, plus breakfast 50 euros for two......May I ask why?
I had serious problems in the hotel with payment by credit cards. For sure tecnical devices on the reception must to be checked. It was really very unpleased to be learned that you can't pay by your credit card then you know that there are enough money on this card...
The location is ideal for a trip to Paris. Plenty of restaurants, cafes. public transportation. The bed was very comfortable. Like most hotels in France (and Europe) this so-called "Superior" room was tiny.
Location, staff and cleanliness No
the best part of the hotel is the location and its good breakfast When i arrived at night on a prepaid reservation the reception staff tried to send me to another hotel nearby claiming the room had suffered damage and was unavailable. After a full day of travelling and not having received an advance notice of the "event" I suspected this was a trick used by an overçbooked hotel. I demanded to see the damages and this the supposed manager was unable to show me, so after a little voice raisingf on my part all of the sudden the room became available. I left that the hotel reception made to lie to me their paying customer . Two more managers emerged and during my short saty the hotel personel made me feel as if they had made me and my wife a favor by letting us stay in the hotel for which I had PREPAID my stay. I can only imagine if my reservation was not prepaid I would have been in the street looking for a hotel room
Staff, decor, location size of bathroom - very small
My wife and I were impressed with the hotel from the minute we walked into the lobby. The receptionist and bell hop could not have been more hospitable. The decor was elegant, and the spa and work out facilities were state of the art. In addition to this, the nearness to the Boulevard St. Germaine de Pres, boutiques, and cafes was excellent.
Location, Location, Location!!! Saint-Germain-des-Prés is a fabulous area and you can walk to many interesting sites and shops. As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe and welcome at the hotel and in the area. The room I was assigned had a view of a generator that was a bit noisy in the early morning hours. Beware of Room 106 travelers!! Other than that everything was great!!
excellent location, good room
Location is very good
romantic room was very small for the amount paid.
Hotel very near Chapms Eleysee, shops and restaurants. Prices in bar very very expensive. Breakfast very expensive at 28 euro each.Had breakfast outside hotel at 1/4 of the price.
Our stay at the Hotel Balzac was wonderful.Our room was very comfortable and nicely decorated, as was the rest of the hotel.The staff were very helpful and attended to our every need.Great location too!
the fast service in the hotel was great , the location was excllent , the breakfast was bad no food varaities .
The proximity to all the central areas of Paris and also it was very quite and a very beautiful hotel. The breakfast was very expensive and not worth the money.
Hotel stuffs, and concierge were very kindly. Also, room and bath was very clean. Location was nice.
we enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and the lovely room.the location was outstanding and staff very helpfull our shower screen was off the rollers but it didn't cause us any grief
This is a very nice hotel at a distinctive location location in Paris. The staff are so helpful, I was helped by a professional concierge team who spoke excellent English and know Paris attractions very well. The staff was polite, food was good, and the facilities are all clean and up to date.
Rooms too small, expected larger as per booking info
Courteous, professional staff. Central location.Comfortable plush rooms. No tea/coffee making facilities or indeed mini-bar in the room which is surprising giving the standard of the hotel.
This staff was very pleasant. The elevator was very slow. My room was on the 6th floor but found taking the stairs was sometimes much quicker than waiting for the elevator.
I like the location, staff are very nice. Internet access in the room are bad.
Hotel location and staff courtesy. Breakfast is very expensive and not good value for money.
Poor state of the room, however very nice terrace. Not quite what it could and should be for 300€.
Absolute proximity to Champs Elysees. There was no view from the window. The room seemed dark and not quite friendly because of that.
interior design and location very small rooms and bathroom, and room service was horrible.
Very nive hotel, good work of reception bad internet
Breakfast is very nice. Elevator was broken during our stay.
the bed was comfortable the toilet was very very very bad
the balcony with eiffel tower view and 30 seconds walking to the champs-elysees 24-h roomservice
location and the personnel at the rception the room should be renovated
The location is very good. Unfortunately there are a lot of management issues there. The front desk, the concierge and the stuff of the lobby bar are nothing to do with the efficiency expected from a five stars hotel stuff.
location room cleanliness and set_up
It was a great location,people were very polite..Would go back again On Saturday I rented a car for 4 hours and had a personal tour of Paris in a Mercedes Benz..Cost $370.00 Euros..Great!!!!On Tuesday I booked car to take me to the airport but did not ask the price as I trusted the people to be fair...When I checked out of the hotel they put the charge on my invoice 320.00 Euros for a 35 minute ride to the airport..I guess they didn't think I would notice..After haggling they lowered the price to 277.00 Euros which was still way too high..Be aware that as they were very nice if you let your guard down for a second these people will grab every pennie they can from your wallet!!!!!!
It was very convenient , the staff were very friendly.
very noesy the room is two levels which make very diffecult to move and less space nothing
our money was stolen from our room when we were out for disney land!! we found this on the last day when we should check out. the hotel promised to invistegate and get back to us but as of now and despite of all remiders we didnt get any reply from thier side. our money was stolen from our room when we were out for disney land!! we found this on the last day when we should check out. the hotel promised to invistegate and get back to us but as of now and despite of all remiders we didnt get any reply from thier side.
Seasonal decorations are amazing in the lobby. There is a grand Christmas tree that is very welcoming and adds a cozy atmosphere. Location is great as well. Being walking distance to the Arc de Triomphe and 20 mins walk to the Eiffel was great. Also, there is the FDR metro line 1 steps from the hotel. This is an added bonus as the metro line is a great way to navigate the city. Champs Elysees was beautiful during Christmas time. The entire avenue was lit up with Christmas lights. The staff was attentive for the most part. They provided outlet converters, and a lint brush for my wool jacket. The breakfast though expensive was delicious. Marriott has an american feel to their menu which is a plus. The check in was surprising lacking. We waited 4 hours at the hotel to check in after flying 20+ hours. It was a dismal experience that I would like to forget. Upon entering the room I was further disappointed with the design, size and view for the money i spent - $500+ per night. The decor didn't feel parisian at all (Although a subjective statement, I have other hotels in paris to compare the marriott too) It isn't that the bed wasn't comfortable, or that the bathroom wasn't great -it was. It had a large tub and bath salts, but i could have received those benefits with their basic room. The skyline view was a joke! It was a view of the vents and smoke billowing off the roofs of the next door neighbor hotels and there was nothing worth noting from our vantage point. My recommendation is that either you go all out and book the champs elysees view (street view) or book the cheapest room they have. I regret booking my room and wish I could have spent the money elsewhere.
Location of the hotel Overpriced
Convenient location and nice room the lack of service
Reception & Concierge Staff were knowledgeable, helpful, & courteous Didn't give me good directions to their Garage when asked, as it's very difficult to find
nothing. The hotel is very bad and very expensive it is fare away from the normal Marriot standart. I am negativly suprices. Over all the price is absolutely not corresponding with the quality of the rooms especially. I will never choose more that hotel
Lobby beautiful, great rooms, staff very helpful and accommodating, food and drinks excellent. Exquisitely updated and decorated. Excellent value for the money. Would recommend without hesitation.. .
Close to centre with bus stop close by
Very excellent!! Nothing
Front desk staff were helpful, intelligent and professional with a great sense of humour. Room was spacious, modern yet tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable for a weary business traveller.
location, and comfort size of hotel
rooms extreamly small, tv charge was not expecting very expensive
Comfort of beds, friendly staff, location to Eiffel Tower and Champs Elysee Not one!
Location, convenience and staff were very accommodating No
The hospitality is more than George V.
The room was well laid out and the staff was very curteous. The hotel was in an excellent location. I could not get the free wifi to work on my computer and the hotel staff had no soluition. The lighting system was hard to figure out.
Well situated near place Vendome, very helpful staff. Everything was excelent.
water would change temputer during taking a shower
the location was great and the small hotel was very private.
The staff were outstanding and most polite and helpful.
Convenient location, a comfortable room suite, a good restaurant with Michelline star, mostly friendly staff, The attitude of some people from the staff
I liked the staff very much. The food was good and delivered on time. The room was imaginatively designed. My only disappointment was that I was on the top floor and instead of a window lookin onto the Place Vendome, there was a large mirror. Thus the room was dark at all times.
It was totally luxurious in an unpretentious way, rooms absolutely beautiful, ornate lift, relaxing calm restaurant. Perfect in every way.
Attention to details was good. Advised prior to arrival it was our 20 th wedding anniversary and they had a bottle of wine waiting for us. Very professional staff. My wife liked the chocolate on our bed every night after turndown service. ice machine, coffee/tea facility within the room would be nice . Excer
Proximity to Cahmps Elysees Avenue. Good service and cleanliness. Small rooms and less options; e.g. they couldn't provide us with connecting rooms although the booking was done 6 weeks in advance and the above was mentioned during the booking and confirmed later over the phone with the hotel directly.
Fantastic breakfast but make sure its covered by room price.Very convenient for Metro and Champs Elysees None bur the odd lightbulb needed rplacing. Small points but there. Perhaps not the interest in spending money when refurb due.
The bed, super comfortable. 1. Bed is queen size bed, not as advertised king size, but as we had a 3 years old son, they provided a separate bed for free. 2. There was a redecoration work going on while we stayed, it was so noisy and really they didn't respect that people want quietness when they go to hotels.
Friendly helpful staff. Price of the breakfast.
Good location and quiet room Small bathroom
Close to the office of Rohm and Haas. Comfortable bed. Dinner selection.
the pool not enough milk, tea bags etc in the room
the staff were fantastic and the size of the room and the beautiful bath only added to our enjoyment. The idea that you had no doorman or bellhop. At 65 yrs of age dragging four pieces of luggage to our room from the street was a chore
Outstanding everything and love Americans Breakfast could've been better
very modern and clean hotel maybe a bigger pool food and drink overpriced
The included buffet breakfast was perfect for our family. Also, the indoor pool was clean and well-maintained. Nothing.
Using Eurostar and arriving at Gare du Nord it was easy to transfer to Gare de Lyon Station which is right next door to this hotel.The Hotel was a 10 minute walk to The Palais du Omnisport where we had tickets for a concert - perferct. Breakfast not included, therefore slightly overpriced, and the breakfast was very expensive. Restaurant does not open until 7.00pm - too late for a meal before a concert.
Free Wi-Fi, pool, good breakfast, polite stuff The room was quite small for three people
easy accsess to train and metro next to a down and out soup kitchen
the pool is nice if a bit small i couldnt get the tv internet in my room to work. i asked reception and they said they'd send someone, but it never happened
overnight befoe travelling on no
I was there for a business trip, and we rented their 'Manhattan' conference room for a presentation preparation. Very clean hotel and responsive staff. The location is very good. It's walking distance to the place de la concorde, the opera, madeleine, saint augustin, and other landmarks.
- light with sign "don't disturb"; - morning newspapers; - the bussiness room/Internet is always busy; - the lamp on the bed's table fall down several times per night; - this is no possibility to swith off the night light
The massage I had was one of the best in my life...
The location is fantastic, and the service is 5 stars. The rooms are too small
Very nice Hotel, the service was very good too.
Hotel Position. Friendly staff. Nice breakfast. In general the rooms are small, and the hotel a bit "tired". Severe remodeling must be done to improve the hotel to deserve its price. 1) the hot water takes ages to come, I.E. no hot water recirculation pumps. 2) the room looks aged, and so did the bathroom. Not classic, but aged and overused, tired. For example "classic" weight scales that do not work. Why bother having them at all? 4) this ridiculous type fridge in the room! Charging as soon as you remove an item. I really dislike them. This is not a service fridge for cliens, it is a sales dispencer! It even has a note for a space 10cm by 10cm by 10cm "area for client". Like it is making a joke... ridiculous!!! 3) This hotel is very expensive for what it offers very bad value for money
Staff, room, breakfast, ambiance Gym bit small and wrong equipment
the staff is very frindly and good services the hotel is too small and my opinion should be 4 stars NOT 5
It was clean. At least one staff was useful. The billing system when we booked online did not tell us the exact charges. It should give us the total figure for all the days, and not just the charges for one day/night. We thought the rate was one sum and when we got the bill we paid 4 times more. This was a bit confusing and embarassing. The online billing system misled us
the bathroom was excellent then room was on the small side
location, good room size it was not 5 stars hotel , you have to ask for things that expected to be in the room, elevator was broken for 4 days out of 8 of my stay, no explanations or apologies
The room and bath were really big for Paris) Staff always ready to help They did not change towels everyday, expensive breakfast
The hotel's location is good, but the friendliness of the staff is what makes it a great hotel. I especially loved the nougats at the reception ;-)!! The wide choice at breakfast was very good too. Nothing much, except 1 day, housekeeping forgot to clean our room!!
Quiet rooms, well equiped room & bathroom. Good service from Front desk, Concierge and Bell-staff. They need to improve their elevator system.
Excellent hotel and nice design. Staff is very friendly and professional. Mine issure: The only issue was with elevators. One was down. I stayed there for 3 nights, left without it being fixed. Again, it is a minor thing.
The staff on the front desk and the front of house people were very efficient The cleaning of the rooms
Location, cleanliness, attentive and knowledgeable concierge. Good breakfasts. None
The friendliness of the staff, the service and the centrality of the hotel. Thank you. It was a pity that the restaurant was closed.
The staff was so friendly & the hotel location was ideal we had so much fun there I'm going to stay there next visit to paris
from the moment we set foot in hotel there was nothing that the staff couldn't do for us..very helpful and courteous.really made my stay in Paris something to remember for a while..loved the personalized welcome letter .
location poor advice from concierge
Small, quaint, quiet. The rooms need updating.
the rooms were very clean and nicely decorated, the employees were very nice and proffisional, and the location was just excellent as Vernet St. was located by champs elysee and george VI road. Hotel Lobby was small and the internet connection was very low.
The location is excellent as it is behind Champs Elysees but yet very quiet. The staff, especially the concierge is very helpful and they all speak excellent English. The walls between the rooms are a little thin. I could hear footsteps and voices from the other room when it was occupied.
I booked this hotel because it was listed on the leading small hotels of the world. This recommendation has not failed me. I have traveled to paris and the rest of europe to know that the standards are different than four plus hotels in the usa. The hotel vernet did have good sized rooms and our room had a balcony which is great. The bedding was excellent. The staff was excellent, including front desk personel, the concierge was fabulous, as well as the bellman, bartenders, and wait staff in the dining room. All the employees addressed me by name after the first day. That shows how much they put themselves out. Lights in the bathroom were not adequate for shaving or applying makeup. Pillows were foam which we don't like. Should be feather pillows.
Location was approperiate for my business meetings around the city. Poor value for money. Absolutely not a 4 star Paris standards. Extremely small room. Unheated bathroom. Aminities were not regularly refreshed. Decor of reception and public areas is basic and rundown.
Friendly and helpful staff and nice room WIFI at our room was a bit weak. Main elevator was not working and everyone had to use staff elevator instead, which is a bit small.
Location is superb! It's close to the Opera, which makes it possible for us girls to attend a nice show in the late evening without too much worry. The cozy room is clean, which meets my expectation of a W. I don't like, hate, the room design. the Cozy room has a very small and dark restroom (all walls are painted in black only with a very deem and small wall lamp). The shower room, although it's independent from the restroom, has a very cheap-looking floor.
good loaction great staff - room was a bit small but this is paris
The W Paris Opera Team are all very focused on customer service. we felt at home the minute we got there. The hotel is impeccably clean, rooms are larger than I expected, and you cant beat the location
Location No place to put toiletries in the bathroom
Their 'whatever/whenever' service is legit, very friendly courteous staff, location is in the heart of everything, half block from the Opera metro. A little of 'The Fifth Element' in style made a couple things confusing or complex, took a while to figure out the rainforest shower, for example.
Location, courtesey Room too small, lack of free amenities in the room.
excellent view (opera garnier) & close to many hot places very small room
Location, bed, staff they don't provide Shampoo, and 1 Soda at 8 Euros is Expensive
Loved the location. If you visit Paris, get a subway pass. They are efficient, on time but sometimes crowded. The W is near two different stops which makes it easy to get around Paris. The room was small and lacked some privacy for freshening up in the morning.
Kind staffs, good location small room
The staff was extremely helpful and accomodating. We arrived a couple hours before check-in and received a room right away. We were surprised later w/chocolates & champagne, as a 35th anniversary gift. They helped us to easily navigate the city, as well. I wish the closet could have been larger but I think the room & storage accomodations are standard for Paris.
the place, the decoration, the people , the services, the bar They shoud be more careful because they gave me a late check-out till 2 pm and when i arrive at 12h30 I found my luggage at the lobby.This is ultrageous. I understand that late check-out is a courtesy and i cant complain. But's better not to assure guests of one thing you later will not deliver ...
The location and the kindness of the staff. Room are very small. Hotel is very expensive.
great service temperature control in gym was dysfunctional
Staff were very friendly and efficient--location excellent and "honesty" bar was a nice friendly touch.
The quietness and comfortable beds...the friendly and helpful staff!
Charming old hotel with very experienced staff. Only breakfast was very expensive.
All the oeople at the hotel were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend the hotel both for service and location.
This is a modern, clean, comfortable hotel in a prime location in St. Germain, near the Musee d'Orsay, an upscale area with good restaurants nearby . It is not a particularly tourist-oriented neighborhood and many shops were closed for August vacation. However a Metro stop one block from the hotel provides convenient access to other arrondisements and neighborhoods. The concierge desk was most helpful in making restaurant reservations, arranging a taxi to the airport, and answering questions. The room, though fairly small (this is Paris!), was comfortable and had many convenience features.
The hotel is marvelous...great location on the Left Bank, close to Musee Orsey. The restaurant attached to the hotel, L'Atelier is world class and a must visit! We will return to this property the next time we are in Paris no
Ideal base for visiting Paris. The only complaint i have it that at the present time there is a lot of building work and road works outside the hotel - which did not detract from the hotel but as i was at the front of the hotel it was noisy early in the morning.
Staff was courteous, rooms were clean, location was great, restaurant/ bar in lobby great. I didn't like that I had to buy an adapter. Most hotels lend them and have it in the rooms. I'm staying in London now and there is an adapter for free. I didn't like that there was a charge for hi speed internet. Low speed was free but u had to pay for high speed, seems silly.
Concierge service was very good, reasonably quiet, bed comfortable, bar was nice, bath was clean room was very small, location just ok, very expensive (breakfast 27 euro, or about $40 each) bar drinks expensive, room very expensive for the size and quality
A luxe hotel with a friendly staff. We had a tidy deluxe-room with a balcony and a clean bathroom; there was a various, tastefull breakfast and the hotel has a nice and comfortable bar, lounge- and tearoom. Next to our room there was a compressor/aircondition machine which gave a noisy sound during the night. The air in the room was musty(although the room was very clean).
The staff were all fabulously helpful.
The location was excellent- close to shopping on the Ledt Bank and also convenient to the Louvre, D'Orsey, and transportation around the city. Also, the staff was very helpful,assisting us obtaining dinner reservations and in helping us with language issues, etc..
the bed was so comfortable and the room was very nice. No enough space for the luggage or in room dinning.
Room (Junior Suite) was well appointed and comfortable, with an impressive view of Paris from the balcony.
Location is perfectly central - 100meters from the Seine opposite the Louvre. Hotel is compact and upstairs corridors only fit one person at a time but is the most unique, quirky and original design I have ever seen (You must see to believe!). The room was small but amazing and I believe every room is decorated differently. I would recommend anyone to stay here and when they do - book the private plunge pool and steam room for yourself for an hour in the morning. Take time to sit in the bar drawing room to sip a drink 100 years back in time. Staff were very friendly and practically ran my life for 2 days with all the questions they answered for me!
Critically understaffed probably due to so many French employees taking summer holidays. Found broken glasses left unattended around the poolside. No running hot water during my stay, but given discounted rate and very commited staff (although few in numbers) and the manager, after all satisfactory. Yet I doubt if I want to come back on special occasions and never on summer holiday season.
The restaurant is fantastic, and overall the hotel ambience was good. Location good too. No shower! not even a clip to hang the shower attachment on! Small bath. No mini bar. Not enough room to swing a cat in. 'Shabby chic' definitely the correct description as rooms very tired decor wise - handle even dropped off the wardrobe door. Ridiculously, outrageously overpriced!!!!!
The special atmosfear of the hotel
extremely friendly staff - small, but cosy room - nice and tasteful furniture private pool in the cellar was a bit strange (resembling a dungeon) but in some way also funny and romantic
Quirky idiosyncatic place with character. Excellent location. We loved it.
i liked a lot the people working there , very nice and friendly some of the rooms were not well lit , hence it was uncomfortable for packing and reading also the safe gave me a lot of trouble it wasnt working properly lift too small and not enough for staff and guests
Unusual hotel - funky decor Swimming pool is tiny. First day and a half no hot water. Restaurant was closed
The facility exceeded expectations as well as the staff and the room. I was fortunately upgraded, possibly because the restaurant was closed for a day due to a Fashion shoot in the hotel. I couldn't have been more pleased with everything.
The hotel was beautiful, spa terrific, and the indoor/outdoor aspect of the Lobby restaurant was lovely for enjoying a spate of mild fall weather. Service is top-notch. The rooms are functionally terrific - huge for Paris standards. Bathrooms are drool-worthy marble palaces. Concierge staff knowledgeable and super helpful. Unless you are strolling the Champs for luxury boutiques one can find in any large city or having business meetings in the western arrondissements, the location isn't great. This can be easily overcome with Uber or taxis, but I would have preferred a more central location like Ritz/Crillon (both closed for renovation), or Le Meurice (I'm supporting the boycott). The design of the bedrooms errs more on the Asian side of Asia-French fusion, while I would have preferred something more distinctively Parisian, but this is a very minor gripe. If I were traveling for business, the serenity/calmness would normally be a plus.
