The Radisson Le Dokhan's hotel is located in an upscale neighborhood of embassies and beautiful apartment buildings, similar to Manhattan's Upper East Side -- lots of charming cafes, boutiques and food shops and the feeling that you're experiencing the city as a resident instead of a tourist (there are very few tourists in the neighborhood). The hotel is on a triangular corner just off Ave. Raymond Poincare, and the shape of the building adds to the charm (very few right angles in the lobby or guest rooms). The staff are very friendly and helpful (one even went all the way back to the rental car place where we'd left a sunglass case to pick it up for us!) The concierge is eager to help and extremely knowledgeable, especially about restaurants (all over Paris, not just in the area) and managed to get us a last-minute reservation on a Friday night (at the restaurant Jamin, which we also recommend, a 10 minute walk from the hotel), not easy to do in Paris!
The lobby is classically decorated and the intimate bar and breakfast room is very inviting (candle-lit at night). The room wasn't huge, but fine by Parisian standards, and the king-sized bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was marble and had beautiful, vintage hardware and was quite spacious. The windows were very large and sunny, and must be sound-proofed as we heard no traffic noise during the night.
It was easy to get to all sorts of places from the hotel (we walked to the left bank for dinner at Reed, also recommended) and a treat to come home to this peaceful neighborhood...
