“Didn't live up to expectations”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Knowing that the Ritz and some great shopping would be found at Place Vendome, I had expected more. The plaza was stark and cold (not to mention all the construction...as others already have noted). I had considered booking into the Grand Hyatt nearby during our visit to Paris. I'm glad we opted for the Hilton instead... But might try a local "boutique" hotel for a future visit.

“disappointing on the day”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Looked forward to this visit from what I had read of the Place. What a disappointment on the day. As reviewer Santba has said building work at so many buildings and covered in scaffolding. The massive work at the Ritz Hotel covers a quarter of the square, and all for an underground car park for the rich. Even window shopping gave me a pain in the wallet, who can afford these phenomenal prices? So not much left on view to admire, great shame.

“Gorgeous plaza but tons of construction and advertising everywhere...”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

This is a gorgeous plaza and a must see but it's a shame there is so much construction going on now and big billboards up advertising.

It's really ironic because if you look at the deep history of Place Vendome since 1702 when they first built it, it's been mired with financial problems. How ironic that now you have so many expensive retail stores as well as The Ritz Carlton hotel and Park Hyatt.

The Bronze Column in the middle of the square is interesting and very detailed.

It's a great plaza to walk through on your way to Place Concord.
