I spent 3 nights at this property and loved every minute. The check in staff was very nice and welcoming. The rooms are well appointed and clean with comfortable beds. I found the staff to be excellent! The concierges were extremely helpful to me and always ready to answer a question. The bellman too were great. I felt very comfortable there. It is expensive but the experience is great. I would love to go back.

We used SPG points to stay at this hotel, and it was an amazing experience. The interiors are so refined, yet comfortable, and they paid attention to a nice luxurious bathroom, a feature often overlooked in high end hotels. I've stayed at about half a dozen luxury collections and found they range wildly as to the definition of luxury... for a city hotel, this one hit the nail on the head!

There were no upgrades available for my gold status, but the standard room was still beautiful and we didn't feel cramped.

The concierge service is, as you would expect, on point. They missed calling to confirm our reservation and we lost it... I couldn't believe it, but as an apology they comped us a private car to the airport.

Do note that eating at the hotel is not for the faint of heart (or at least those who can only stay there because they have a lot of SPG points)... I did a double take when my cup of coffee was 15 euro. The brunch? Scaled up from there, clocking in at 100 euro, not including alcoholic drinks. Fun to watch the scene nonetheless :)

We stayed at Prince de Galles earlier this month. The hotel was recently renovated and it shows. Upon check-in we were escorted by a staff member to our room. The room was very comfortable and service was superb. As mentioned by others, amenities are top-notch. We used the gym around 2/3 times and we loved it. One small negative is the lack of pool, it would have been great to have a pool but due to the location and the age of the building it's probably almost impossible. Overall, we loved the hotel and we will certainly be back hopefully in the near future.

We stayed here twice during our latest France trip (we stayed two nights, headed to the Loire Valley for a few days, and then came back for three nights before hitting the road home). Our first two nights were excellent - they noted my boyfriend's Platinum status and upgraded us to a suite with a balcony. The staff also contacted us before arrival and helped us arrange a car service from the airport and make dinner reservations at La Scene (which was amazing - highly recommend!). The hotel was absolutely lovely, the room was spacious, and the staff was great.

The second time we checked in, we were given a room right across from the service elevator and next to a family with 3 screaming little kids (the kids thing wasn't their fault, but the nonstop pinging of the elevator wasn't great). After a sleepless night, we requested a new room, which they were fortunately able to accommodate (back to the 8th floor with a balcony we went!). However, it was a little frustrating to be given such a terrible room to begin with, particularly given the amount of Starwood stays we have and the fact that we'd just stayed there (and spent quite a decent amount of money). But they did come through with the new room and then helped us with a car and tickets to Versailles on our last day in town.

We also had breakfast at the hotel once (delicious yet pricey - I'm glad it was covered under SPG Platinum status) and spent some time at the gorgeous, chic bar (loved it!). It was the perfect post-dinner hangout.

The location is really convenient - you can walk to the Arc and Champs-Elysee in less than 5 minutes, and you only have to head to the other end of the street to catch a great view of the Eiffel Tower.

All in all, I'd recommend La Scene for dinner a thousand times over and would likely recommend the Prince des Galles as well (the art deco renovation is gorgeous; it just seems like they're ironing out some small kinks on service).

Dear Guest,
Thank you for having taken the time to share your feedback on Tripadvisor. Glad to read that you enjoyed your experience at the Prince de Galles; your valuable comments have been shared with all our Team. However I do regret that you were disappointed by the first room which was offered to you during your second stay with us, and relieved that your final room did entirely meet your expectations.
I do hope having the pleasure of welcoming you back soon at your Parisian Home.
With best regards,

We arrived on Bastille Day and stayed here for a week and it was wonderful. The location was excellent and the staff was always very helpful. Anne, our server every morning at breakfast, was the best! She answered all our questions about Paris and got us out for our tours on time and with elegance...we never felt rushed at any time. Night turn down service was efficient and pleasant too.

My wife and I recently celebrated our 10 year anniversary in Paris (3 nights at Prince de Galles and 4 nights at Le Meurice). The Prince de Galles is the perfect Parisian boutique hotel experience. Classic service, a beautiful renovation to is timeless elegance and a great location. From check in to check out the entire stay exceeded our expectations. And please check with Jean Christophe if you need anything. Enjoy.

There is so very much to say about this beautifully restored property. I will however start with what prompted me to write this review. While not the manager, Philippe at the front desk was responsible for making sure all was right with our stay. Philippe was extremely courteous and patient in understanding our specific needs for the suite with a terrace that we had booked. While we were booked into one by the manager that did not suit us, he was patient and showed us another. He was not just attentive but insightful and understood our request and checked-in to make sure our stay was enjoyable. This is specifically remarkable because we have stayed at other hotels in France that are considered five star hotels where the ONLY individual at the front dest that can help the client is "the manager". I appreciated the ability for the Prince de Galles Hotel to appropriately train all levels of their staff. We stayed at one "famous" hotel that neglected to clean our room one day and simply shrugged and told us the staff had gone for the day. The housekeeping staff at Prince de Galles Hotel was meticulous, they made certain they had turn-down at the correct time and were ALWAYS pleasant with any request. We truly felt at home as well as made to feel special by all of the staff that we encountered through the hotel.

The decor and beauty is taken to beautiful detail throughout the hotel. Marcassar Wood lines the rooms and the elevators in an appropriate art deco style. The mosaic work throughout the hotel is beautifully done giving a light and festive sparkle to all of the bathrooms and showers throughout the hotel. While some art deco modes can seem heavy and dull - this is not the case with the Prince de Galles. Although we walked throughout Paris endlessly as most do while on vacation, we also enjoyed the very spacious hotel gym with well appointed equipment and machines.

The location is within walking distance of two different metro lines and of course the Champs-Élysées (one block), Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile, and so much more! While having stayed in Paris at other high end hotels, this hotel exceeded all service previously experienced at the famous French hotels. We were pleasantly surprised!
