“Straddling Two Worlds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

This perfectly situated boutique hotel has one foot in the old world elegance of Paris and the other in the now. Marriott has done a splendid job of taking a 16th Arr. historic neighborhood property and gently nudged it into the wired, cozy, comfortable hotel the Trocadero is today. You feel the balance on arrival and it’s maintained throughout your stay. From the understated street level façade, to the attentive, intelligent staff, your introduction to the hotel and the area will delight.
It becomes a bit schizophrenic after you settle in, but again, in a balanced way if that’s possible. The lobby bar is kitschy modern while the fantastic courtyard is traditional garden party. The restaurant is superb yet struggles with overly sterile attempts at décor. And while enjoying a wonderfully fresh breakfast buffet, the mix of Chinese businessmen and American families is a bit of a contrast. Fill the whole place with starry-eyed couples on their first Parisian visit and you have the makings of a romantic comedy.
Location rules and so does Trocadero. It starts with taking the train into town, getting off at Victor Hugo Metro, and walking home. We could see the top of the Eiffel Tower from our window. The Arc along with the Champs is a short distance the other direction and the neighborhood is fashion central on the retail scale.
This is a five star property and I would have given it a perfect score except for the nagging feeling that it was trying to be too many things to too many tastes. Go, stay, enjoy.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are quiet and may afford a Tower view.

This boutique hotel is located in walking distance from the Eiffel tower. It's also convenient to the metro. The room was beautifully decorated with the master located upstairs. The sofa bed downstairs was perfect for the kids.
The concierge was very helpful in making reservations and giving helpful directions for the metro. We ordered room service for kids... Convenient but a little disappointing...

Room Tip: Try to get a Room with a courtyard view quiet, tranquil,and beautiful

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during November,it's awesome. Our room had a magnificent view facing the courtyard specially at night. Hotel is just walking distance from everything..Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysees, Arc de Triomphe etc., with the help of their very acccomodating concierge. The hotel staff are very friendly...definitely would stay again.

My husband and I recently stayed here for 5 nights using Marriott points. We've been to Paris many times and chose this hotel because we had never stayed in this neighborhood, and it looked charming. Would definitely stay here again. Our room, which faced the courtyard, was quiet and attractive, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The staff was wonderful - couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. The location is a bit removed from some of the tourist sites, but you have the advantage of being in a real Parisian neighborhood. My only complaint was that wifi was very expensive. Breakfast was not included with our room, but this turned out to be an advantage as we discovered a nearby boulangerie/cafe with some of the best croissants we've ever had (Boulangerie Bechu - 118 Avenue Victor Hugo).

Room Tip: Our room faced the courtyard and was very quiet.

Recently spent 5 days at this hotel. Fantastic location, 15 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower and 15 minute walk to the Champs-Elysees/Arc de Triomphe. Metro, restaurants all in easy walking distance. Concierge was extremely helpful with recommendations. Rooms were large and clean. Would definitely stay again.

I booked this hotel using all my marriott points (6 nights, 200,000 points). I have been a Marriott guy since 1999 and have stayed at many of their upscale properties (and some small Fairfield Inns in the middle of nowhere). When I was deciding to go to Paris, it was between this hotel and a few others. I had stayed in the Trocadero area before at another hotel chain and loved the area for its neighborhood feel. I dismissed the Champs Elysse and Arc de Triomphe hotels as they were in touristy areas and would be loud. Walking past the Champs Elysse hotel during my last visit, I noticed how busy everything around it was. So, I looked at this hotel and the Vendrome location. The 'boutique' word used in so many reviews made me think 'small rooms' so I opted for the Trocadero Rennaissance location. From the minute we arrived we were treated like special guests. All the staff was very friendly. The hotel itself is quiet and upscale but close enough to the action. Its a 5 minute walk to the Victor Hugo Metro stop and a 5 to 7 minute walk to the Trocadero Metro stop and an awesome view of the Effiel Tower. There are many little bistros along the way and a small grocer within a block. There is a bigger grocery store near the Victor Hugo metro station. We stayed in the annex of the hotel which required us to walk through the amazing courtyard every day. If it was warmer out, we woulod have bought a bottle of wine and relaxed there.The room was big for European standards, so was the bathroom. A lot of detail went into the room. The room had a fridge, safe, nice TV with one or two English news stations, and robes.Turndown service leaves mini Tolberones! Since I was a Gold Level Marriott person, we got free breakfast and internet. The breakfast would have been about $80 US for two of us! The food was great and so was the service. Lots to choose from. Ask for the hot chocolate if there in the winter. this was my 3rd visit to Paris and second stay at a Marriott property (La Defense was my first stay. Too far away from everything, small rooms). I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Now if I was spending my own cash, it would be different but if you are deciding to book a Marriott property in Paris, this one should be at the top of your list!

Room Tip: The annex was awesome!

You cant really go wrong with a Renaissance or a Marriott. Rooms were extremely clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Its a bit of a walk to some of Paris' main attractions, but the metro is a few blocks away and makes it pretty easy to get around. Rooms were large and cleaned on time every day. We used points to book our stay and didnt have any problems.
