I would say the Mandarin Oriental Paris met my expectations for a Mandarin hotel in general. Everything was of a very high quality but somewhat unremarkable. There were a few minor issues during my stay that probably tainted my impression of the hotel:
1. The rooms were very dark in general. Lighting was insufficient in the entryway where the coffee machine and the closets were.
2. The electrical outlets were not designed with the foreign (non-EU) traveler in mind. Most international adapters won't fit into the circular outlets.
3. Housekeeping forgot to replenish the supply of shampoo/conditioners and other basic amenities.
Overall, if you are a serious shopper, then this hotel would be an excellent choice for you in terms of the location. However, aside from the location, I think it is pretty average for a 5-star luxury hotel.
