Booked 4 nights at Fouquet's Barriere through the AMEX FHR Program. Hotel was very accommodating on the front end by honoring a lower price that was on their own website than was on the AMEX FHR site. Location and staff were fantastic. After we were checked in and shown to our room, my girlfriend and I were shocked by the huge size, the two separate balconies and view of the street, and amenities in the room. It felt like an apartment rather than a hotel room. Butler staff was good at replenishing the in-room complementary mini-bar and provided some champagne and welcome snack on arrival. Had a great meal at the hotel restaurant and namesake, Fouquet's, which had live music the night we went. The breakfast buffet is a continental buffet and is extensive, but the staff is happy to please making eggs, pancakes, etc. upon request. Spa and gym is ample for a Parisian hotel and the pool is beautiful. The concierge was helpful making reservations at L'Arpege at my request and the butler staff was attentive and easy to deal with, although one morning they did miss the wake-up call. Bell and entry staff were very attentive and when it rained insisted on walking us to a cab and from cabs with umbrellas despite the fact that it was barely drizzling. Also one night we were staying, they were actually filming a movie in the lobby which was pretty cool. Location was convenient to pretty much everything in Paris and the hotel's central location makes it easy to walk around the city rather than cab or metro. Only thing I'd comment, and perhaps this is a lack of knowledge of European customs, but the jacuzzi that they have which is huge was not hot, although maybe it is not meant to be? Overall, I'd recommend this hotel highly and had a fantastic stay.
Ask for a corner room with 2 balconies/windows.

For means of explanation only, the Jacuzzi you mentioned in our Spa is not actually a Jacuzzy but a unique water course, which is indeed not meant to be hot. Please apologize if this want not properly explained to you. Maybe, on your next visit, you would like to try our hot balneo-therapy treatment?
We hope to have the pleasure to welcoming you back soon to the Hotel Fouquet’s Barrière!
