The only bad part of the hotel was that some rooms were different than others. We had a nice room on high floor with a wonderful sunrise view of the area. Be prepared for a smallish bed...Paris is for lovers or least you will become very close friends after you end up sleeping close together.
During our stay they were renovating the lobby so I can only how beautifully French it will look come spring and summer.
The staff is old world helpful. They ran out to the cab to meet us and were quick to offer assistance if needed or an interesting chat when time presented itself.
A picky or limited eater might find the breakfast spread sparse but the food was high quality.
The area offers many different food options with cafes and small, high quality dinner options that are not at all like the snooty multi course options of old. Use the helpful staff. They know of many different small restaurants and will make reservations for you.
By the way, everyone speaks some sort if English and if you smile and say please and thank you (even in my terrible French accent) then the whole city is ready to help with open arms.
We used the metro, buses and connected to trains easily from our hotel and the staff provided detailed directions plus they had pre printed maps that were very helpful.
Paris is a wonderful city with so many different sights so this hotel is a great jumping off point and welcoming, warm place after a long day of exploration.
