I love the fact that this hotel was located in a safe, residential area. Within walking distance you will find many cafes and shops. Few blocks away you can easily walk to the Eiffel Tower and in the other direction the Arc De Triomphe. We were given an upgrade room which was nice sized. Loved the bathroom mirror which reminded me of the mirror in the fairytale story Snow White. My room was located in the back in in the The Residence - magnolia building. I was concerned about anyone off the street could walk through the courtyard to the rooms on the first floor because there didn't seem to be any security features for the entrance doors. At night the entrance to the courtyard area has closed gate. The staff were all courteous and professional. The breakfast buffet had wide range of selections and was great. Only downside was the parking issue. Initially I parked on the street and was offered to have my car valeted but my car was in the same spot several hours later then later covered in bird poop. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and would definitely return. Used points for the room which was a plus because this hotel is very expensive.
