I stayed in a junior suite for three nights in early January 2014. It's hard to imagine improving on this room. Everything was pristine and of the highest quality. And unlike what you get at some of the luxury chains (e.g. Mandarin Oriental), the room doesn't look like it could show up in a luxury hotel in any other city. The room is a perfect example of Parisian charm. It has subtle floral patterns, an old world feel, and it gets a lot of light from the two huge windows. If you're choosing among the luxury hotels of Paris (all of which are in a similar location), I don't think you could go wrong staying here.

Room Tip: room 243 was excellent. It has a little noise since it faces the street, but has a city feel that w...

Dear Guest,

First of all, I would like to thank you so much for taking the time to share your kind comments on TripAdvisor regarding your recent stay amongst us.

We were truly delighted to read such a positive review. That you consider it “hard to imagine improving on this room” and that “everything was pristine” and of the “highest quality” means a lot to us! In addition the fact that you appreciated the “charm” of the room that could not be in any other city.

Thank you for being being such a wonderful ambassador through your generous comments.

Once again, thank you for sharing your findings, and allow me to take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy New Year.

Looking forward to welcoming you back in a not too distant future.

Best Regards,

Leah Marshall
Hotel Manager

Having an early flight into Paris, we arrived at Hotel Le Bristol five hours before check-in. Jérémie didn't hesitate to check us in but kindly informed us that our room wasn't ready just yet. After meandering the surrounding area for an hour, we returned to the hotel where we were told that our room had been upgraded and that it was available - despite it still being many hours before official check-in. We quickly realised that this high standard of service was standard for this hotel.

The service and attention to detail at Le Bristol is unmatched and the best I've experienced. We experienced a few issues with our French SIM cards and the staff in the business centre didn't hesitate to assist. We were so apologetic for asking for their assistance with something completely unrelated to the hotel but they were extremely forthcoming and didn't miss a single beat.

During our visit, there were quite a few African dignitaries staying at the hotel and despite the obvious disruptions this caused, we never once felt like we were ignored or overlooked. In fact, we felt very welcomed by the fact that the concierge and other staff recognised us and addressed us by our names each time we left/returned to the hotel. Quite a feat in a busy, popular and large hotel!

Le Bristol truly deserves its "palace" status - it is absolutely stunning. Our room was spacious and overlooked the courtyard which had been beautifully decorated for Christmas. The bathroom, which was as big as the room, was like your own personal spa with double sinks, a huge bath and separate shower.

The hotel is located in a prime position, moments away from the Champs-Élysées and there were quite a few good restaurants in the area.

The rooms are pricey but they are worth it even if you stay for a short while. It's nice to splurge every now and then, and this is one splurge I'll never regret!

Dear Jackie C.,

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your kind comments on TripAdvisor regarding your stay amongst us in December.

We were truly happy to learn that it was a “Perfect three nights in Paris”. I was delighted to read that our “attention to detail at Le Bristol is unmatched” and that it is the best you have experienced. This means a lot to us.

It was particularly wonderful to read that you experienced our staff to be thoughtful. Jérémie at the Front Desk, and the Concierge team amongst the others in the front of the house so appreciated your comments. Guest recognition is of most importance to us.

Lastly we are happy to know that you not only found our location agreeable, but that the room product also.

Once again thank you for sharing your guest experience, and allow me to wish you a very happy new year.

Looking forward to welcoming you back amongst us for another “splurge” you’ll “never regret” in a not too distant future,


Best Regards,

Leah Marshall.
Hotel Manager.

We LOVED this hotel. Stayed there for five days over the recent NY holiday and couldn't have been more impressed. The hotel is beautiful in every sense of the word, in a great location, located a block away from Elysee' Palace, and on rue de Faubourg St. Honore, home to some of Paris' best shopping, During the holidays, the hotel is wonderfully, warmly decorated, with a large tree in the lobby and outdoor garden, as is the street and neighborhood. The see so many of Paris' signature shopping landmarks, and their beautiful buildings, all decorated for the holidays, is great fun. We were upgraded to a Deluxe room under American Express' Fine Hotel and Resort program which was terrific, wonderfully decorated and large, with a magnificent bathroom. Under the FHR program we were also entitled to early check in which is exceptionally helpful for those traveling in that morning and enjoyed complimentary breakfast each day. Finally, the service. A lesson in how to run any business. Every single person we came into contact with was exceptional, no question too many, no request too large. From the housekeepers to those in the spa and front desk. However, those manning the concierge desk, well, they became like family; helping us so much, our every detail, from having us take the house car to a local restaurant - a great recommended, 110 Taillevant, to securing from row tickets to a terrific New Years Eve concert at St. Chappell (we had only asked for tickets), to museum, to four great restaurant recommendations exactly of the type we wanted, great neighborhood places. Best though, was the reputation of the concierge's and the Bristol around town, when they called and said they were from "The Bristol," it meant more than any other hotel in any other city that we've ever been. A special note to Dominique, who when we left felt like we were leaving family, was exceptional - a friend. One our last night, wanting us to go to a favorite neighborhood restaurant in 7th (Fontain de Mars), and finding that the earliest they could take us was 9:45, he wrote a handwritten note for us to give to the restaurant when checking in. The owner sw that it was from the Bristol, read it , laughed that it was from Dominique, and not only seated us earlier but gave us a great table. Above and beyond in every way (on New Years Eve, they placed a bottle of champagne in our room, such a nice touch). For the first time in traveling to Paris, I can see why those that have stayed at the Bristol, each year, insist on making it their home.

Dear Don C,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post your comments on TripAdvisor regarding your recent stay at Le Bristol Paris last January.

It is such a great pleasure to learn that you found our Hotel “beautiful in every sense of the word” and “loved” your experience at Le Bristol! Your words are so very generous, and we sincerely thank you!

You are quite correct in that our location is very ideal, adjacent the Palais de L’Elysée, and on one of the greatest shopping streets of the city!

We were delighted that you found “wonderfully and warmly decorated” the Hotel for the holiday. Your praise was shared with the team that prepared all the celebrations!

Delighted to read that your upgrade to a “wondefully decorated” Deluxe Room suited you perfectly. Happy that you could enjoy an early check-in. We always try to do our utmost to ensure guests with early arrival flights can benefit of as early check-in as possible.

We were also thrilled to learn that “every single person” you came in contact with “was exceptional”. That they were always wiling to answer or help manage any requests, Housekeeping, the Spa, the Front Desk, or the Concierge Departments!

Kindly rest assured that we have shared your kind words with all of the team, with a particular attention to Dominque, our Head of Concierge who went out of his way to ensure you had an exceptional experience at the different restaurants and cultural experiences suggested.

Looking forward to welcoming you back amongst us, and perhaps for next year’s New Years Eve!

Very truly yours,

Leah

Dear Miron M,

First of all, please let me thank you for taking the time to share your comments on TripAdvisor further to your stay amongst us last October.

It is always disappointing for us to learn when one of our guests is not fully satisfied with his experience.

If you found our roof-top swimming a little bit small, I hope that you have enjoyed the wonderful chimneys view from it.

However, we truly thank you for your comment about the professionalism of our staff.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Le Bristol in a not too distant future, and would like to present you our best wishes for 2014.

My Son and I spent six glorious nights at Le Bristol in early December and although the weather was decididly chilly the warmth of the staff made our visit to Paris very special.
The restaurants and bars are so comfortable to relax in and enjoy your breakfast and dinners and staffed by such warm and genuine people.
Our room overlooked the internal garden courtyard which is beautifully maintained and bathed in sunshine during the day and well lit in the evenings.
Our initial welcome to the hotel was by Jean-Marie (Guest relations manager) who is such a warm person who was only interested in making our visit enjoyable and comfortable.
During our stay at Le Bristol we found that all the staff have the same objective!
Each morning at breakfast we were greeted warmly by Olivier who had the skills to make a simple meal into a presentation.
We snacked at Le Jardin Francais and The Bar on a regular basis and the quality of service, food and beverages was very good.
We dined twice at 114 Faubourg restaurant which has excellent food and an extensive wine list. We were impressed with the warm service from Audrey on both of our visits and also by the manager who we noticed made a single lady diner feel very comfortable with his attentiveness.
Our requests for Museum and TGV tickets were handled effortlessly by the Concierge staff with either Jasmine or Jean-Marie in close proximity!
We cannot close our review without mention of the two ladies who "managed" our room. Their attention to detail and to our service was very kind and much appreciated.
We are so pleased that we have experienced Le Bristol's warm hospitality and we will return when we visit Paris again.

Dear guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review on TripAdvisor regarding your stay with your son last December at Le Bristol.

We are delighted that you and your son enjoyed your room which was located on the garden. I could not have been more pleased to learn that you were greeted on arrival by Jean-Marie. Even more that you found that all staff with whom you came into contact had the same genuine keenness to please, be it in the Food and Beverage outlets, Le Jardin Français or Bar, with Olivier at Epicure for breakfast, Audrey at 114 Faubourg on two visits, or with our Assistant Manager Jasmine just paying close attention to your queries with our Concierge.

Our Director of Housekeeping was also thrilled that you highlighted the Room Attendants who looked after your room. Thank you for being so thoughtful to point them out! We are delighted to share your guest experience with all the staff.

Thank you again for your kind comments. We look forward to seeing you in a not too distant future!

Was expecting a great experience at this hotel and wasn't disappointed. We were three female friends together who should have been four but one dropped out from illness. This left one to spend a night on her own in a similar room. The staff were superb and couldn't do enough for us anticipating our every need. This is a seriously luxurious hotel at serious prices. The accommodation was magnificent but the bedroom was at the front on the main Saint Honore and as I am a difficult sleeper, would have like a quieter room at the back of the hotel. This is only nit picking as it is a truly wonderful hotel and we shall be back again in September

Dear Guest,

First of all I would like to thank you so much for taking the time to share your comments on TripAdvisor regarding your recent stay with your two lady friends in December.

We were delighted to read that you expected “a great experience and were not disappointed”. A pity that your other friend fell ill and was not able to join you.

It is a great pleasure to read that our staff anticipated your every need. Kindly rest assured that we will share your praise with all the team.

As we remember you and your friends very well, we have duly added to your profile, and for your future visit in September, that you would prefer to be on the garden.

We look forward to welcoming you back on your return visit in September.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year,
