My husband and I stayed at the Secret de Paris for 3 nights on the Discovery Package and loved the experience we had. We had the opportunity to stay in the Eiffel Tower room, the Moulin Rouge room, and finally, the Musee d'Orsay room. The rooms were all wonderfully sexy, each with their own charm. However the Musee d'Orsay and Eiffel Tower room were probably our favorites in terms of design and space. The little things made it so much more fun fun - glass interior elements, interesting washroom/shower design, and various lighting options.
We arrived on a Sunday, mid-evening, for a late check-in and were greeted with warmth and enthusiasm. Everything was explained to us and we were escorted to our first room during which we learned about the hotel. The staff was helpful and eager to suggest places to go, restaurants at which to dine, and things to see. Every time we would return from long days of walking/exploring we would be greeted warmly. The staff always made sure to ask if there was anything they could do to make our stay even more wonderful. It is a shame we did not have the time to take advantage of the beautiful sauna and steam room.
Given that most restaurants are closed on Sunday in Paris, they were able to direct us to a few places that would be open, and suggest what ended up being the most magical first night in Paris that we could have asked for. It turns out that we had arrived on Bastille Day, and there would be fireworks at Place du Trocadero and an Eiffel Tower light show. What a night!
We had a couple of early mornings due to tours we had booked, so we had breakfast twice at the hotel. It was quite good, albeit a bit overpriced. Breakfast offered a nice variety of cheeses, fruits, yogurts, breads/pastries, confitures, cold cuts, smoked salmon, and freshly squeezed juices.
The location was not bad - close to the metro and within walking distance to a few nice walking streets, cafes, and restaurants.
To anyone going for their first time I would recommend the discovery package as it was a lot of fun. Keep in mind that you will not be able to unpack and will be living out of your suitcase night to night. While it was a bit of an inconvenience to live out of a suitcase for the three nights I would not trade the experience. The staff made the transitions easy and having a different themed room each night was so much fun. I will definitely be returning! Though the next time I will consider picking a single room to stay in so that I can unpack and settle in for the duration of my stay.
The staff made us feel special and attended to our every need with smiles and enthusiasm. The rooms were fun, romantic, and sexy. Overall an excellent experience!
