We have just returned from Paris, and had some friends want to come surprise my wife while there. We booked our tickets through Delta.com, but also shopped Expedia / other sites. I purchased a Non Refundable Deluxe Double for $567.18 per night. More than I wanted to spend, but the hotel my wife wanted. Our friends from Austria who booked a week out....(lucky) got a much nicer suite for only $420.47 (yes this is in dollars not Euros) I asked about the price difference, the concierge said it is cheaper to book direct. I asked about price differences for European clinics vs US clients and he said there were no differences. But $140 / night for a lesser room doesn't go down easy.
The hotel is nice....quiet....staff friendly. Our room, a "deluxe double" had no view other than walls. Beds were fine. Very little closet space. Few plugs available for phone/ipads etc. Shower was the best part of the room.
Also there is no front desk staff after 11.....at least none we saw....front doors are open, but no one at the desk. Seemed a bit odd.
Bell Clerk / Concierge were very good.
Things to know: Taxis called from the concierge which typically start their meter at 5-8 Euros as you get in. (Fee for being called?) Return taxi rides around town were about 1/2 the price. Also taxi drivers do not know the city like London cabs...so have your addresses / gps it on your phone before you leave. Amazing how taxis don't know directions for places to eat / shows etc.
The hotel was good but the price difference for booking early vs last minute was dissapointing. Be advised.
