The location is great, 50 meters walk to Champs Elysees avenue, 150 meters from GeorgeV metro, 200 from CDG Etoile metro and 250 meters to Arc de Triomphe. Christopher at the front desk was great, very helpful, always friendly.
Very easy to get here from CDG via Air France bus that dropped off at Etoile stop or take Metro to (need to switch trains though). We took taxi from hotel to airport as it was raining the day we left...55 Euro's, not much traffic so only 30 min to CDG. Breakfast area was cozy and selection looked great, but the Publicis Drugstore which has food,wine/liquour/beer and sitdown restaurant at one site was great place for croissant/coffee/juice for 5 Euros!
They also will open any bottle of wine you purchase.
Restaurants along Champs-Elysees are pricey...wow...but if you go one block off you can find some gems: Chez Savy..was about a 1 km walk but worth it...Best combination of price/quality we had on our trip. For happy hour/relaxing..take left out of hotel, walk up the sidewalk and across the street to the right is Comptoir De L'Arc...reasonable priced wine and cocktails, but we did not eat there, but it was usually full with a lively crowd.
I;d stay here on business given convenience to Metro (1 stop away from LaDefense)
