“Superb location and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

One could not ask for a better location: Louis Vuitton flagship store directly across the street, Metro stop across the street, and a central location with great shopping/walking streets all around. The staff is exceptional and provides incredibly personal and thoughtful treatment. They bend over backward and treat you like a close friend. When you request something, they execute promptly and correctly. When it was time to depart, I requested someone retrieve our bags. I crossed paths with them on the way to the elevator! The complimentary breakfast we received was excellent. The one thing I wish they would change is to increase the size of the gym. It is small and meagerly appointed. Otherwise this is an exceptionally nice place to stay and we really enjoyed our five nights.

Room Tip: Take advantage of the complimentary breakfasts. The products are delicious and fresh and you would...

This review is for the uSpa which is on the lower level of the hotel. I can't seem to find its own entry, so I hope this helps those who want to try it out. Non-guests can pay extra for access to the day spa facilities along with any and all treatments they offer. My girlfriend and I visited during our anniversary trip to Paris and, for the price, was an absolutely delightful experience.

Let me start by saying that, due to our poor planning, we did not bring bathing suits with us to the spa. They cleverly sell them at the spa, however they were in excess of 100 euros each! I was prepared to purchase one for both of us, however they did not have a size small enough for my girlfriend. The woman at the desk was very nice and called several places along the Champs-Elysées to see if anyone was selling them, seeing as though it was the middle of November. Thankfully we were able to purchase them at the Adidas store down the road and came back to enjoy an absolute treat.

We booked a couple's massage and access to the day spa. The spa itself is very well appointed with a large, heated pool and a separate pool with whirlpool jets and waterfall effect showers. Both pools were the same temperature, and neither were "hot tub" temperature. They have a male/female steam room and a sauna which are all very nice. They also have a lounge area with complimentary tea, coffee, water and nuts and dried fruit. They also offer a price fixed menu for 70 euros that gives a nice taste of what the restaurant upstairs has to offer, and you can enjoy it at your leisure in the spa facility.

Our massage was very good, not spectacular, but what really made the experience were the therapists. Jenna and Sarah were marvelous. Very funny and outgoing and since this was my girlfriend's first time getting a real massage, were very accommodating to her needs and likes during the session. Definitely would recommend both of them.

After the massage, we spent more time in the spa facilities, which offer free (fast!) wi-fi and comfortable places to lounge and relax before we headed out to a fabulous dinner.

I would recommend this spa for its location, opulence and extremely friendly staff. The price was very reasonable as well for a place like this. We looked at other places like the spa at the Four Seasons and the Mandarin, but I can't bring myself to pay upwards of 800 euros for a day at the spa.

We spent a wonderful night here in November, and this is definitely the best hotel we have stayed in while in Paris.

The hotel staff were friendly and professional (particularly at the front desk), the room very stylish and spotlessly clean, bathroom was gorgeous (lots of black marble), and we were given some delicious canapes with our drinks in the 2nd floor bar that evening. Supper in the F brasserie - nice ambience - was very French and very expensive.

Being located on the corner of Avenue George Cinq and the Champs Elysees, and very close to the Arc de Triomphe, it is perfectly placed for walking to all the sights of Paris.

In addition to the complementary soft drinks in the mini bar, there were other little treats in the room, such as chocolates and boxes of lovely little biscuits.

All in all we had a lovely, relaxing break in this lovely hotel, and will definitely return.

We stayed four nights in Paris at Fouquets barrierre and couldn't have been more pleased. We were upgraded to a terrific suite on the fifth floor with a balcony throughout, great view over George V, and of the Eiffel Tower in the distance. While not cheap by any means, the hotel excelled at every turn from the outstanding service, interior design, classic Parisian building with a contemporary feel, beautifully appointed bedrooms, the most comfortable beds, in a terrific location on the corner of the Champs Élysées and George V. Would definitely stay here again, one of the best options in Paris if trying to take advantage of AMEX's Fine Hotels and Resorts program. Quick comments on others: the Meurice, beautiful hotel, perfectly located on the one hand, right by the Louvre on Rue de Rivoli, but also in the middle of super touristy t-shirt and gift shops that would make me want to be somewhere. Plaza Athenee; wow, what a beautiful property right in the middle of classy Rue de Montagne. The Bristol, wonderful location on Rue St. Honore, in the heart of The best shopping in Paris. Hotel Crillon, incredibly majestic place on Rue de Rivoli, just down from the Meurice and clear of tourist shops.

We stayed 1 night at the hotel Fouquet's Barrièr. It was complimentary night from the Leading Hotels of the World loyalty program. Getting a free night in Paris within the program can be rather challenging as some hotels require a minimum stay of several nights, however the very friendly LHW booking hotline was able to offer us a junior suite at the Fouquet's Barrièr, so we didn’t hesitate.

The hotel is rather conveniently located on the Champs Élysées, the hotel entrance is however on a side road. It is located on the “less busy” side of the Champs Élysées and the Metro Station George V is just 2min walking away. We were greeted by the doorman and our luggage was taken as we were guided to check-in. Check-in was LHW-unspecific conducted inside the room, which is a nice touch!

The hotel is rather small and as such lobby and public areas are fairly compact too, which does give it a cosy atmosphere. The hotel is decorated somewhere between boutique and French modern chic, so don’t expect Louis XIV furniture or antique paintings. Bot overall a decent look'n'feel and more appropriate than trying to fake something "old".

Same goes for the rooms, modern chic but without being too contemporary. Actually it’s a nice mix that suits the location. As motioned, we had a junior suite, rather big (especially for Paris) with high ceelings, facing the inside court of the hotel. It did feature lounge furniture, a desk and make-up table, a decently sized bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. Some nice features were the free mini-bar, complimentary WiFi or Ethernet and a nice gift from Hermès in the bathroom. According to LHW standards we received a complimentary fruit basket and some chocolate pralines.

During check-in a funny situation occurred. We were offered as welcome two glasses of champagne, we gratefully accepted and waited for room service which indeed a few minutes later brought us two EMPTY champagne glasses. Astonished, we did ask the young waitress where we the champagne was and she replied “Oh I don’t know!”. I don’t know if that was meant to be a funny joke from the hotel or a misunderstanding, yet we never received a drink. Strange!

Pool and spa area was typical for a European downtown hotel. Actually not many hotels in Paris seem to offer one. It did feature a small pool, some form of hot-tub-massage basin, steam and dry sauna and a little lounge area with complimentary tea and snacks. Nice to go for a quick swim or hop into the sauna and everything you can really ask for in this category of hotel.

Breakfast was great. It featured a buffet and a choice of cooked dishes you could order from a menu. However; when we were greeted: we were told "you can order whatever you want" and in the end we were only offered eggs. Strange.

A strange situation also happened during check-in in our room. We were offered two welcome glasses of champaign which we gratefully accepted. The charming lady from the reception left the room, reassuring us the champaign will be delivered to our room within a few moments. Indeed, 2min laters; room service with two EMPTY glasses. We asked the room service "and what about the champaign?" and she replied "Oh... I don't know: check the mini bar maybe?". That was it: we have never received the champaign in the end and even if there were any in the mini bar: I wouldn't expect a guest to serve himself? Strange - maybe a joke from the hotel.

All in all a typical European downtown property with great service and modern accommodations at a decent location. It’s not one of Paris’ legacy luxary hotels and I feel this does show in the staff trying extra hard to shine and excel. I would stay here again and I would recommend it to anybody.

+/-Friendliness of service yet here and there a little inconsistent
