I finished my Paris experience by spending the last 3 nights at Hotel de V after being at the Hotel Britannique for the previous 7 nights so my assessment is based upon the experience I had at a reasonably priced lovely small boutique hotel like Hotel B - I wanted to experience a more prestigious address and area before leaving Paris. What struck me (and keep in mind at both places I got the 'typical' standard single) is that Hotel V's room was most definitely larger, more elegant, and with a more classic tasteful Parisian feel (both places, btw. had extremely comfortable beds!). This room was in the 'back' of the hotel so it overlooked an odd inner court but was quite peaceful and quiet. The lobby is beautiful, the old elevator a wonderful trip to the Art Deco-ish era, and the staff were very helpful. Keep in mind I did not make any special requests so I can not say how they would react to any special needs. I did order room service one night (too dang exhausted) and I'll be danged that the cheeseburger and fries (don't ask I had a hankering) was absolutely great - and so were the breakfasts, but very pricey. I did find, interestingly, that I missed the neighborhood feel of Hotel B's region - I was surrounded by enormous wealth and although it was a bit fun to pretend to be super rich for a bit I must admit I found the people and region sad and artificial more than anything - I must say that I preferred the fun vibes of the Hotel B's area. BUT if you want the feel of a scaled-down version of the Ritz, in the very same square, and have close access to incredible shopping, the gardens, museums, but not spend a fortune this would be the place. One thing to watch for - taking a shower can be very dangerous! The tub is slippery and the shower device irksome (and the water gets all over the floor) - I actually fell in the tub and got banged up pretty good - the tub is huge so you have to step up way high and over to get in...if you are elderly or physically limited you may need to request a different arrangement (although the marble bathroom was huge and beautiful!).
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1723 by Pierre Perrin, the Sun King's secretary, this elegant building was in turn a private residence and a seat of government, then in 1842 the embassy of the young Republic of Texas whose independence France was the first to recognise. The square is named from the fact that n°1 was the site of the former Vendome family residence. Three centuries of art, culture and elegance make it a unique address in Paris. Today the place Vendome is the temple of Parisian jewellery, and gives onto Paris's most brilliant quartier, with its haute couture, antique dealers, art galleries, the Opera and the Louvre museum. The Hotel de Vendome is thus a unique jewel, on a par with all the precious stones in the vicinity. ... more less
