This was the first opportunity to see the newly renovated Hotel Edward VII since it was acquired by new owners in 2008. Visually, it has been dramatically re-done, with all the glamour and style that one could expect for this fashionable neighborhood in central Paris. The location can't be beat. The staff are all different, but unfailingly friendly and helpful (well, except for the housekeeper who walked into my room late one morning and scolded me for not putting the "service" sign on the door handle to notify her). The room had a few drawbacks in terms of functionality: the small table that was the closest thing to a desk had a lamp and a phone on it - but only one electrical outlet on that wall, so you had to choose, lamp or phone but not both. The "king" bed was two twin beds with separate foundations pushed alongside one another - on the elegant hardwood floor, they quickly slid apart so there was no option to sleep in the middle, only one side or the other. A humorous moment occurred when a printed notice was delivered on Sunday announcing that there would be sirens and emergency drills for staff upcoming on the Monday - and, in English, that the drills would be occurring the preceding Friday! Ah, well, not easy to manage a small hotel! But it's really elegant, if pricey due to the location.
