“MAGNIFIQUE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

My wonderful (& spontaneous) Boyfriend surprised me with a whirlwind, last-minute trip to Paris Dec 29-31 and selected the Renaissance Hotel Le Parc because of its prime location, which is a quick, 3 block walk to the Eiffel Tower... and it was PERFECT!

The Renaissance is one of Marriott's 'Boutique' Hotels with just over 100 rooms which are modernly decorated and immaculate. Our check-in was friendly & prompt and we were invited to enjoy their delicious buffet-breakfast while our room was being prepared for us. The staff in the restaurant was friendly and attentive and the variety of food, both Hot & Cold, was outstanding and consistent each and every morning.

Our room (360 which over-looked the courtyard) was ready when promised and had a huge King-sized bed (that was incredibly comfortable!), a flat-screened TV, tasteful Marble bathroom with a deep tub and plenty of HOT water and excellent water pressure with every use. The ONLY issue Joe & I had was the shower didn't have a 'door' but rather a single 3-ft piece of glass which made no sense and left the floor soaking despite our best attempts to put towels down.

But the BEST thing about this Hotel is its location! Out the front door, take a right, walk 3 blocks and you are at Trocadero in front of the Eiffel Tower! The Metro Station is there for easy access to the rest of the City but Joe & I decided to see the City by Bus and got on the Les Cars Rouges (The Red Double-Decker Buses) and LOVED IT! For 27 Euros you get an all-day pass that takes you on an audio tour of the major attractions and you can get on & off as you please. Buses every 6-10 minutes and we were able to cover a LOT of ground and take our time at each which was awesome! For an additional 6 Euros, you can get a Cruise Pass to go on a boat ride on the Seine which we did later that evening. The hour-long cruise was just ok. Long line, long wait time, and the boat was full.. plus it was COLD! So take or leave the upgrade.. but definitely do the bus!

Some recommendations if you are planning on travelling to Paris:

Buy your tickets to the Eiffel Tower BEFORE you get there! They are typically SOLD OUT days in advance and the LINE is INSANE all times of the Day/Night.

Plan on standing in a LONG line (unless you get there EARLY) at the D'Orsay Museum. We waited 45+ minutes because every visitor has to go through security.

Definitely pay a visit to the small Cafe: Carette which is next door to La Malakoff Cafe facing Trocadero and be SURE to treat yourself to one of their incredible pastries! Joe recommends the St. Honore Cake which is a decadent & edible piece of art that you will never forget!

Please feel free to write to me with any specific questions that you have and I will do my best to answer them if I can. Paris is a magical City and you will be so glad when you arrive that you are staying in a wonderful and convenient location and that you are prepared with things to do and places to go!

Au Revoir!

This was my second time staying at this hotel. I gave it high praises during my first stay during the Spring. Check-in was smooth; front desk clerk helpful and friendly; and received a room upgrade. Unfortunately during my second stay the room upgrade was a disaster. I am writing this review at 3am in the morning because I am so anxious to see daylight so I can leave this place. We receive a room with a loft; bedroom with bathroom upstairs and sitting area with sofa bed downstairs. Nice view of the courtyard. When it was time to open the sofa bed we were horrified to discovered a stained sheet and trash underneath the sofa. We called housekeeping and no one showed up for extended period of time. We called the hotel manager and he came to see the stained sheet on the sofa bed and trash underneath it. He apologized and said housekeeping will come take care of it. We waited a bit longer still no housekeeper. We made another call to front desk and told them housekeeping hasn't came yet. Finally the housekeeper which was a rude man. Tried to put a clean sheet over the stained sheet. In protest, I told him to remove that stained sheet. He got all huffy and changed the sheet then stormed out. He didn't even pick up the trash underneath the sofa bed or even returned to vacuum. Everyone had enough of these rude Frenchmen and no one wanted to sleep on the sofa bed because of the earlier sighting of the stains which was dried blood. Three of us slept in the upstairs bed and one slept in the chair. I am mortified how disgusting the sofa bed and housekeeping service was during this visit. I will never come back here again even though I enjoyed it during my first visit. To pay almost 500 euros for a room like this is when I could have received a cleaner room and service in the most seedy part of town. The elegance of the hotel hides how we are sometimes shortchanged in the cleanliness of the room and customer service. This was definitely my nightmare before Christmas.

Room Tip: View of courtyard; make sure there is not a catch to your upgrade; thoroughly check for cleanliness...

This perfectly situated boutique hotel has one foot in the old world elegance of Paris and the other in the now. Marriott has done a splendid job of taking a 16th Arr. historic neighborhood property and gently nudged it into the wired, cozy, comfortable hotel the Trocadero is today. You feel the balance on arrival and it’s maintained throughout your stay. From the understated street level façade, to the attentive, intelligent staff, your introduction to the hotel and the area will delight.
It becomes a bit schizophrenic after you settle in, but again, in a balanced way if that’s possible. The lobby bar is kitschy modern while the fantastic courtyard is traditional garden party. The restaurant is superb yet struggles with overly sterile attempts at décor. And while enjoying a wonderfully fresh breakfast buffet, the mix of Chinese businessmen and American families is a bit of a contrast. Fill the whole place with starry-eyed couples on their first Parisian visit and you have the makings of a romantic comedy.
Location rules and so does Trocadero. It starts with taking the train into town, getting off at Victor Hugo Metro, and walking home. We could see the top of the Eiffel Tower from our window. The Arc along with the Champs is a short distance the other direction and the neighborhood is fashion central on the retail scale.
This is a five star property and I would have given it a perfect score except for the nagging feeling that it was trying to be too many things to too many tastes. Go, stay, enjoy.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are quiet and may afford a Tower view.

This boutique hotel is located in walking distance from the Eiffel tower. It's also convenient to the metro. The room was beautifully decorated with the master located upstairs. The sofa bed downstairs was perfect for the kids.
The concierge was very helpful in making reservations and giving helpful directions for the metro. We ordered room service for kids... Convenient but a little disappointing...

Room Tip: Try to get a Room with a courtyard view quiet, tranquil,and beautiful

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during November,it's awesome. Our room had a magnificent view facing the courtyard specially at night. Hotel is just walking distance from everything..Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysees, Arc de Triomphe etc., with the help of their very acccomodating concierge. The hotel staff are very friendly...definitely would stay again.

My husband and I recently stayed here for 5 nights using Marriott points. We've been to Paris many times and chose this hotel because we had never stayed in this neighborhood, and it looked charming. Would definitely stay here again. Our room, which faced the courtyard, was quiet and attractive, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The staff was wonderful - couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. The location is a bit removed from some of the tourist sites, but you have the advantage of being in a real Parisian neighborhood. My only complaint was that wifi was very expensive. Breakfast was not included with our room, but this turned out to be an advantage as we discovered a nearby boulangerie/cafe with some of the best croissants we've ever had (Boulangerie Bechu - 118 Avenue Victor Hugo).

Room Tip: Our room faced the courtyard and was very quiet.

Recently spent 5 days at this hotel. Fantastic location, 15 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower and 15 minute walk to the Champs-Elysees/Arc de Triomphe. Metro, restaurants all in easy walking distance. Concierge was extremely helpful with recommendations. Rooms were large and clean. Would definitely stay again.
