I don't speak French and staying in a Parisian hotel can be a little daunting. Hotel Le Bristol is set a short walk from the Louvre and a longer walk from the Marais district and the Champ. The convenience of the location is one bonus: the staff and their impeccable English and their helpfulness is the other. I enjoyed this hotel very much. Staff were also helpful in organising a babysitter (a very friendly English speaking nanny). Only complaint: the stairs! The stairs going up and down the floors seem to be heirlooms of the hotel. Not quite long enough for the modern foot, and age has caused them to tilt forward. I slipped twice, and very cautiously descended after that!

Dear guest,

Thank you for your posting on TripAdvisor following your family visit to Paris in July. The fact that you all thought the staff to be friendly, but also thoughtful means a lot to us. We have well noted your comment regarding the stairs. Should we have the pleasure of a return visit in the years to come we would love to meet you with our Director of Projects and Engineering.

Wishing you very best regards,

The hotel was phenomenal. I hadn't been to Paris in 20 years (and my budget was a lot more modest then) and seeing it with the Bristol as a home base was such a treat. I regret not writing down the names of more staff members as I am writing this review two months after our stay and have forgotten. The front desk and concierge staff were amazing. So genuinely nice and helpful. None of the attitude and pretension for which Paris is so well known.

The Bristol driver met our train in place and on time when we arrived at Gare St. Lazare from Geneva. He even snapped some photos in the train station for us. We arrived late, so the hotel recommended their own bistro for dinner 114 Faubourg. We didn't love it. We found it to be unaccommodating and overpriced. My 13yo son could find nothing on the menu he liked. Admittedly, he's a typical "kid eater." But they wouldn't even make him an omelette or something of that ilk.

Were were not able to get into the #1 rated Epicure for dinner, even though the staff checked everyday and suggested going through American Express, etc. No luck, but we did enjoy breakfast there everyday. It was fabulous and the service was impeccable , even when I knocked over (and broke) a drinking glass. (No worries, happens all the time ... everyone one tried to make me feel better!).

The concierge provided perfect directions to every location we wanted and recommended two restaurants we really enjoyed -- Guy Savoy, which was phenomenal and Antoine which was good. The latter did not have nearly the same level of service, though it was a pretty view of the Eiffel Tower. The service was not friendly or even efficient.

Other reviewers have done a far better job detailing the pluses here. I just can't say enough about the staff. I was expecting some serious haughtiness. It was just the opposite. We even received a one category upgrade which gave us a lot more room for our son, who slept on the pullout sofa which was make up every evening and folded down every morning without us ever having to ask. We can't wait to return.

Room Tip: There may have been better views, but ours of the interior courtyard were surprisingly serene and be...

Dear guest,

Thank you for being so very generous with your rating on TripAdvisor following your family stay in June. We are thrilled that you found both front desk and concierge staff in particular genuinely nice and helpful. We have noted however that you were disappointed with the restaurant Antoine’s service. We are continually looking for our guests’ feedback so that we can follow-up.

We were also delighted to read that your arrival from Geneva was seamless with our driver who picked you up at the train station.

On the other hand I would hope you could contact us at your convenience regarding the experience at our brasserie 114 Faubourg. As we do have so many young guests dine with us, I was really sorry to see that we were not flexible nor sensitive to your requests. That is generally not at all the behavior of the team.

Hope to have the opportunity to meet you on a future visit!

Best regards,

Leah Marshall

Wonderful experience, All staff friendly and efficient. We were treated like royalty and given many little extras. Meal in Le epicure was superb. The only disappointment of the stay was that the weather was not good enough to breakfast in he delightful garden.

We spent a weekend at Le Bristol in Paris before traveling to Normandy for the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of D-Day. From our reception to leaving for Normandy, we were treated with the highest regard for our every desire. Although we have stayed in large hotels with more impressive entries, none can compare to the level of luxury and attention of the staff. Lobby furnishings and art work were as grand as Versailles. Our suite was commodious and elegantly furnished. The size of the bathroom and its amenities made us think we were in Chicago rather than Paris. A U.S. electrical outlet was not only a nice touch, it allowed us to charge our iPhones and iPad without concern for frying them.

The most memorable aspect of our stay was the attention of the staff. When the reception staff learned we were going to Normandy for the D-Day Commemoration, they treated us with the highest regard. We could not have been more pleased.

Dear William D.,

We so much appreciate your kind words in your posting on TripAdvisor following your family holiday in June.

I can only imagine the memorable time you spent in Normandy for the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of D-Day.

I am so pleased that we at Le Bristol were able to make a positive impression on you and the family prior to the visit to Normandy.

We are fortunate to have a very French classic ‘grande dame’ whereby our guests know for sure that they are in France and not in some other corner of the world.
The owners constantly give us the means to keep the Hotel at its best.
It is so nice when our guests note all those features that they appreciate, from the bathroom and its amenities to the U.S. electrical outlet as you did.

When you say that the most memorable aspect of your stay at Le Bristol was the attention of the staff, that is the best compliment we could receive.

Thank you very much, and know that we look forward to having you with us once again in the near future.

With best regards,

Leah Marshall

We stayed here for two nights. The staff was very welcoming and made us feel at home. We were traveling with a group and they did a great job of having all our rooms ready when we arrived and had our meeting rooms set up. The property and rooms were very clean. Perfect location for our business needs. The hotel restaurant meet all of our needs and had a great selection. Everyone was pleased. A very successful trip.

Difficult to beat - the great service, peaceful courtyard and decent sized rooms make this a great place to stay. The Epicure restaurant is fine as well, but would warn that the dishes are on the heavy side, with generous use of butter. Amazing that you can order half-sized portions of many dishes which is well worth it.

Dear Sir, Dear Madam

Would like to thank you for your kind words and are delighted to hear that you had a great time during your stay the hotel, Le Bristol.

The Chef, Eric Frechon, is originally from Normandy, a region in France that is renowned for its cows and dairy products, hence the Normans’ slight obsession with butter. You thus definitely had an extremely French gastronomic experience. We are glad that you enjoyed the half-sized portion option.

We hope to have you back soon at the hotel and at Epicure.

Yours Sincerely,

Kevin Chambenoit
Food and Beverage Director
