What a let down. You would think this formula equals success: Paris, a beautiful city + 1er A., great location by the Louvre and Les Jardins Tuileries + great staff (they are outstanding), but unfortunately the corporate stamp destroys potential of this hotel.
The hotel is over priced (I paid with cash + points) for what you get. The beds are NOT the heavenly beds we are used to, more like a Sheraton bed.
On a positive note the staff from start to finish is incredible. Fast room service, pleasant and professional in every department, and they are very patient with Americans. The decor is nice.
Superior rooms are small, to be expected. Furnishings are nice. I wanted a double queen room (we are party of 4) but was told when booking through SPG couldn't have 4 people in a room, so I ended up paying for two rooms. However there are rooms for 4 people, quite large and about the same price.
In sum, it is lacking a "WOW" factor this building has the potential for. Unfortunately, it has the Starwood stamp of mediocrity indelibly printed on it.
I will stay in another hotel on my next trip.
