The pluses: Impressive gold-themed lobby. Decent rooms with good beds and furniture - a little small with narrower corridors compared to our typical US hotels, but good by Paris standards, I suppose. Helpful and polite concierge and desk staff. Free WiFi. Good location though it's not on Champs-Elysees itself as the name implies, but a couple of blocks away from it. Very clean, and the bathroom has nice toiletries.
Minuses: The street it lies on (rue la Boetie) is narrow and congested, with little parking space while you're checking in, if you're coming by car (not such a concern if you're arriving by taxi or using the subway.) The extras like meals or coffee / drinks are over-priced so we avoided these. The room was over-heated and it was hard to adjust the temperature down, though we solved this by opening the window (in early December!) but then there was street and traffic noise as we overlooked la Boetie. The desk clerk charged E13 extra per day for the 2nd person (me), saying our company negotiated rate was for just one person (my wife) though the contract said nothing about extra charges and the hotel incurred no extra expenses (there was no complimentary breakfast, or extra bed or larger room involved.) Also, other desk staff said there was no charge but it ultimately appeared on the bill. Very strange.
But the helpfulness of the concierge in pointing us to places to see and how to get there made up for this. The golden lobby was so impressive that we took pictures of it. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
