The Marriott Champs-Elysees is wonderfully situated for first-time visitors to Paris or those who prefer a hotel located in the heart of Paris. It bills itself as the only hotel actually on the Champs-Elysees. It is a 5 minute walk SE from the Arc de Triomphe and convenient to the Metro transit stop (FDRoosevelt). The hotel entrance is attractively tucked into a vintage facade, which could be passed-by if not for the doorman, flags and discreet Marriott signage. Inside, the lobby and reception area are modern with an atrium which rises to the upper floors.
Our room faced out the rear of the building, onto a rather typical business street without a spectacular view. This may be desirable, however, as the street noise at the front of the building - along the Champs-Elysees - might be considerable. Our sleeping area, with king bed, was on a "loft" just a few steps up from the room entrance and desk area. The bathroom was modern and all furnishings were clean and functional. There was ample space to include a rollaway bed. Internet service is available for a daily fee.
The hotel staff was VERY attentive. Our requests for extra blankets were filled immediately. The front desk clerks and concierge staff were friendly, never overburdened and always willing to please. They provided numerous tips for our travels which enhanced our stay in Paris.
We only ate breakfast in the hotel restaurant, which consisted of an ample hot and cold buffet, with fruits, fresh breads/pastries and eggs cooked-to-order from an omelette chef. It was a relaxing start to our day.
There are many fine dining options available nearby - and, of course, shopping options in every direction.
Considering the weakness of the US dollar during our stay, it's difficult to determine the "value" of this hotel relative to others in Paris. Americans will certainly experience sticker shock at check-out. However, the Marriott Champs-Elysees provided us a luxurious experience, traveling as a family, that we would not have been able to receive if we had stayed at a smaller boutique property or a lesser-rated hotel.
Keep in mind that we were not looking for a romantic, couples-only hotel.
We were very pleased with this hotel choice.
