“Three Nights in Heaven!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Rarely do I find a hotel with the the excellent reviews this hotel has on Tripadvisor living up to the ratings. LeBristol, for us, not only met them, but exceeded them. Everyone who worked there was glad you were there and ready to help anyway they could. For example, I asked the doorman where I could find macaroons. To make sure I got there safely, he literally walked me part of the way there, until the store was in eye sight, so I had no chance of getting lost.

When I read other people's reviews, especially when they are all excellent, I wonder if it can all be true. Before I wrote this review I read several others, and I can honestly say that they all match our experience.

Dear Ted D.,

I was so thrilled to read on TripAdvisor that you rarely yourself find a hotel with the excellent reviews this hotel has on TripAdvisor living up to the ratings. We could not hope for a more generous comment that we even exceeded them! We do know that it is always a work in progress, so never take it for granted!

Our doormen were very happy that you found their gest of accompanying you until the store you were looking for was in sight.

We look forward to having you with us again in the very near future;, and thank you for your thoughtfulness!

Yours sincerely,

Leah Marshall
Hotel Manager

One of the 10 palaces in paris. It has one of the best locations. The best restaurant. The service is wonderful and the rooms very very nice. I recommend every one who can afford this hotel ,to try it at least one time and to feel the difference with other hotels.

I spent a few days at Le Bristol and it was such a treat.
From the moment you enter the hotel you know...
Such warmth from anyone you meet, such attention to details, such exquisite food.
The Spa is wonderful and thankfully noone pushes you to purchase any of the Spa products.
The swimming pool is so chic and with a view to the Sacré Coeur to die for.
Breakfast is a feast.
Every minute you feel you are a very welcome guest for whom your hosts have a soft spot. How can they figure out what you like and dislike, what will please you most? They do.
When at Le Bristol, you know at every minute that you are living the good life the French way.
It does come at a price but there is no surprise there and you cannot discuss the price of a work of art.
The only thing I really found unnerving was: the doors of the rooms or apartments.
A very white rectangle not decorated with mouldings just with a golden and shiny door knob.
Each door looks like a "work in progress" that could end up as a rococo full gilded door when funding is secured. I am sure this is not the case and is a choice of the designer. But what is the idea behind such a choice " carte blanche with a golden lining" or "blank canvass to paint your dreams"?
I found solace with the barometer in the stairs. It could not have been better selected.

Anyway, when in Paris, stay at Le Bristol and know you selected the Best.

Stayed here every time I've ever been to Paris- and have always loved it. The restaurant is so good you don't need to worry about the rest of the average brasserie dining in and around the city- perfectly located in the centre of the city and the rooms are DIVINE. Book a suite- it's always worth it. Staff are refreshingly polite- lovely in fact- which is such a relief from the usually malpolie everywhere else in la belle Paris. Great place- recommend it highly.

Dear Jenna C.,

Thank you for posting in September your comments on TripAdvisor regarding your stay in May. We are thrilled that you have been with us regularly, and continue to love Le Bristol. Happy to see that you find no reason to seek out another brasserie in the city, as the restaurant offering at the Hotel suits you well. Very happy that you consider not only Le Bristol to be in a perfect location, but that rooms and suite are “devine”.

The most important comment that we so appreciate was that you find the staff to be “refreshingly polite – lovely in fact”. Best compliment we could hope for.
Look forward to your return visit.

Yours sincerely,

Leah Marshall

We have stayed at the Bristol on 4 occasions and the level of service and detail cannot be bettered. Epicure, their signature restaurant, is a delight. The staff are unfailingly helpful and happy to store some luggage whilst we are away briefly elsewhere. On this occasion we had a Junior Suite and that was to say the least spacious.

This time, my partner and I were celebrating a special event, and we got upgraded to a large suite with a huge fruit basket and a wine bottle waiting for us. There were several improvements since my last visit (and the standard was already high): better turndown service, new bedding by Sealy, new fitness room, improved garden setting, even more attentive staff.

The service is some of the best I have seen outside Asia, and it is consistent: reception, concierge, restaurants, bars, housekeeping.

The pool is not very large but the setting is unique and it is possible to swim short laps. The sauna facilities are simple and have not improved with the recent changes to the spa.

Great new bar, but no alcohol-free cocktails on the menu.

Having tea (watch out for the trolley with exceptional pastries) in the large garden is a highlight of my summer stays in Paris.

Besides the fact that there should be tea-and coffee-making facilities in the room, the breakfast could be improved. The new restaurant Epicure is wonderful, the service at breakfast is very good (warm towels at the start of the breakfast!), but it is traditional à la carte and not really up ot the level of a three-star Michelin restaurant. They could already start improving the quality and variety of the bread, honey and jam, but a small buffet in addition to the menu (see the Mandarin Oriental) would offer better value for money and change the whole experience.

Overall, D. Le Calvez and L. Marshall are doing an incredible job at Le Bristol. Top of the Parisian league with the Plaza Athénée (to be seen, though, when the PA reopens next year).

Still my favourite in Europe with the Ritz in Lisbon.

Dear guest,

Thank you kindly for the generous heading you posted on TripAdvisor following your visit with us in August. The finest compliment we can receive is that guests such as yourselveds witness the improvement with each visit. We take very much to heart your comments, and thrilled that you noticed several improvements since the last visit while pointing out that “the standard was already high”. To say that you found the service at Le Bristol some of the best service outside of Asia is a very big compliment, and particularly as you say that it is consistent. We know that it is always a work in progress!

We have noted that the sauna facilities should be improved. Also we are following-up with our Chef Barman regarding the alcohol-free cocktails on the menu. Please do not hesitate to request tea and coffee making possibility when planning your next visit. We have understood that you would like to see a larger variety of bread at breakfast. We would hope to be able to introduce you to our in-house baker Wesley to appreciate more fully how we could meet your expectations.

Again, we appreciate your kind words, and thank you for giving us further constructive comments!

Yours sincerely,

Leah Marshall
Hotel Manager
