The Fouquet's really has an outstanding location in the centre of this magnificent city. From collection at the Eurostar terminal, to arrival and check in you really get the impression that this place is special. It is presented perfectly. It is definitely not cheap and so if I apply the highest standard of expectation then:
You will like:
Great rooms, stylish, modern and well equipped
Good bathroom, although the toilet is located in a different room, away from the bathroom(?)
The spa is beautiful and a haven of tranquility away from the hustle outside
Overall ambiance is one of class and sophistication
What we did not like:
The service of some of the staff was pedestrian and unattentive. The check in staff and concierge were good, but those who had tasks delegated to them were not. For example, it took half an hour and three phone calls for a plug adapter to arrive.
Breakfast service was also variable. Some people were stood waiting for a table for ten minutes or so without any obvious urgency from the staff to prepare a table.
Breakfast itself was disappointing overall in terms of choice and quality.
In summary, the Fouquet's is a very high class option that is executed well, but not perfectly. For a special treat, you could do far worse.
